Speaking on 98.5 Stick To Wrestling, Mercedes was asked when she knew of her AEW debut.

"I knew for a while, that's why it's all about Big Business. I am Big Business. I'm the CEO of AEW. Me and Tony have been planning things for a while and we're in the works to do so many more incredible things," she said.

Asked about the deal with AEW coming together, Mercedes replied, "It was amazing. We've been talking for quite some time now. The alignment felt so right in 2024. There have been so many beautiful things in the works. When he called me the first time, I was like, 'I'll think about it, TK. We have to build this relationship. Let me keep on watching and seeing this women's division.' I kept on watching the division and my dreams became so much bigger and brighter. I knew instantly I wanted AEW to be my home."

Mercedes has yet to make her in-ring debut for AEW. She has not wrestled since suffering an ankle injury in May 2023.
