Willow Nightingale Wants To Prove Doubters Wrong In Rematch Against Mercedes Mone

Willow Nightingale wants to erase any doubt.

At NJPW Resurgence 2023, Willow Nightingale defeated Mercedes Mone to win the NJPW STRONG Women's Championship after Mone suffered an injury late in the match. Since Mone arrived in AEW, she has been on a collision course with Nightingale. At AEW Double or Nothing, Nightingale will defend the TBS Championship against Mone in Mercedes' first match since her injury.

In an interview with Chris Mueller of Bleacher Report, Willow Nightingale discussed her upcoming clash with Mercedes Mone.

"The way that I could top [the first win] is by walking out the winner and there will be no question in anyone's mind of if the only way I could beat Mercedes is if she gets injured in the match.There is a little bit of a pro and con to this. Mercedes hasn't wrestled in a full year. I've been able to find my strengths as a performer over the past year, so that's all on display for her to study and figure out what my strong and weak points could be. Although she has a full catalog of matches for me to watch, I don't know what she's been working on while she's been healing up. I only have the past to go on and I'm confident in what my game plan is going to be, but let's hope there aren't too many surprises that I'm unprepared for," Nightingale said.
