Tony Khan is open to bringing in Nikki Garcia.

Earlier this week, Nikki Garcia (formerly Nikki Bella) discussed how Mercedes Monè’s AEW debut inspired her to the extent that she almost picked up the phone to call Tony Khan and enquire about the possibility of coming into the company. Many then wondered whether the interest was there on both sides, and we now know that bringing in the 40-year-old would certainly be something that the AEW owner would be open to.

Speaking on the Battleground Podcast, Tony Khan stated that he’d be very interested in working Nikki Garcia, and that he considers her part of the AEW family due to her sister Brie’s marriage to Bryan Danielson.

“If Nikki Garcia ever wanted to come in to AEW, I would be very interested in that. I think the world of her. I have so much respect for Nicole and Bri. They’re like family to us because Bryan is like a part of my family, and that means Bri and Nicole part of the family. So I have so much respect for both of them, and if Nikki was interested in coming to AEW, we would love to have her here any time. That was so great to hear. It means the world, and I just like both of them so much. I think they’re really, really cool, and really, really great stars that would add a lot to AEW if they ever wanted to come,”

When discussing AEW, Garcia explained that she didn’t want to commit to wrestling again due to her responsibilities as a mother. However, whether the former Divas Champion finds time to make an in-ring return later down the line remains to be seen, especially with heavy interest from both her and All Elite Wrestling.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Nikki Bella potentially returning to wrestling as soon as we hear more.
