Mercedes Mone has set her stall out regarding a return to WWE.
On December 19th it was reported that Charlotte Flair had signed a huge new deal with the company. This new contract will see Flair become one of the highest-paid women in WWE history. However, it’s believed she’ll be jumped on WWE’s pay scale by Mercedes Mone should she return to the company.

On Fightful’s The Hump, it was revealed that those within the wrestling industry believe Mone’s WWE asking price is above the value of Flair’s new contract. Sean Ross Sapp reiterated this report on social media.
