Kenny Omega Teases Potential Tag Team Match With Mercedes Moné
Kenny Omega has teased a potential tag team match that would see him and Mercedes Moné involved in the same match together for the first time.
Mercedes Moné’s made her highly-anticipated NJPW debut at Wrestle Kingdom 17 in early January. Moné attacked KAIRI after her successful IWGP Women’s Championship defense, which led to their match at the Battle In The Valley in San Jose, California.
When Moné had her first NJPW match against KAIRI at Battle in the Valley this past weekend, Mercedes picked up the win to become the IWGP Women’s Title.
The NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 event also saw Kenny Omega return to NJPW after about four years away from the company. Omega defeated Will Ospreay to win the NJPW US Title in what was considered an all-time great match.
On her YouTube channel, Mercedes Moné posted a behind-the-scenes video about her NJPW debut at Wrestle Kingdom. She also posted a shorter video that featured when she met former AEW and IWGP World Champion Kenny Omega.
Kenny Omega and Mercedes Mone had a Twitter exchange with Mercedes saying: “So nice to meet you @KennyOmegamanX until our paths meet again.”
Omega responded to that writing:
“Our work with NJPW isn’t quite done yet, so I’m sure they will! I hear they sometimes do mix matches now too…”

Since he’s the NJPW US Champion, Kenny Omega will be working future NJPW shows just like Mercedes will, so they will likely see eachother again at some point in 2023.
In addition to that, the date has been revealed for the AEW-NJPW Forbidden 2 show on Saturday, June 24th. Omega is likely to be a major part of the show since he’s a top star in AEW. Whether Mercedes is there as well is unknown at this point, but she certainly could be involved with it.
