‘The Man’ wants to see the top female stars in the industry paid what they’re worth.

Becky Lynch and Mercedes Moné, formerly known as Sasha Banks in WWE, are often linked thanks to the part they both played in elevating WWE’s women’s division alongside their Four Horsewomen contemporaries Bayley and Charlotte Flair, amongst others. Whilst Lynch remains one of WWE’s top stars, Moné walked out of the company in May 2022 and made her official AEW debut at AEW: Big Business on March 13th, with multiple reports noting that Moné’s contract now makes her one of the highest paid women in pro wrestling.

In a recent interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Becky was asked about Mercedes Moné’s reported contract with AEW, with the multi-time WWE Women’s Champion highlighting the importance of increasing influence and emphasis throughout the industry equating to financial rewards.

“I think that’s an important part, getting paid equally for the equal work and the equal position we are at right now. Women’s evolutions and revolutions are fine and well, but making sure that they equate to contracts and financial reward for these things, when we are doing equal work, is hugely important,”

Tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite will see a four-way match between Kris Statlander, Skye Blue, Anna Jay, and Willow Nightingale to determine the challenger for Julia Hart’s TBS Championship at AEW Dynasty, with Moné set to be on commentary.

Regarding Lynch, the talk of female talenrs being paid what they’re worth comes at a particularly interesting time, as Fightful Select recently reiterated that her current deal with WWE is set to expire this summer.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Mercedes Moné’s AEW contract, as well as Becky Lynch’s upcoming contract negotiations with WWE as soon as we hear more.
