Last year Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of WWE and in the months that followed there was a lot speculation regarding what the next step would be for the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. Ultimately Sasha ended up making her way to New Japan Pro Wrestling where she’s currently working as Mercedes Mone.

So far she’s found success as Mercedes Mone as she’s been able to capture the IWGP Women’s Championship. It seems her success has inspired others as Charlotte Flair showed support for Mercedes Mone during an interview with Daily Mail when she said, “I think it’s cool whenever someone follows their heart, and that’s inspiring. There will never be another group like the Four Horsewomen, ever.”

Charlotte Flair made her return to WWE back in December after spending several months away from the company, and she explained why this run feels different when she added, “When you come back you don’t feel like you ever left because you get back into the daily grind so quickly, but it definitely gave me a refresh and the opportunity to come back with a new perspective because any time you step away from something and come back without the baggage, I feel a certain lightness when I’m out there.”

“I don’t have to try to be good or bad, I can just be the star that I am. The one big difference is being able to interact with the kids around the ring after so many years of just always leaving after the match or not getting to engage or not wanting it.”

“Yes, you always want to engage with the fans, but I never got to have that reception with them the way I have it now. It’s been so much fun and so rewarding and special, it’s awesome. I must have done something right all these years!”
