Mercedes Mone praises Tony Khan for jetting her home after brother fell ill

In her weekly newsletter, TBS champion Mercedes Mone wrote how her younger brother was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday, the morning that she was set to defend the TBS title on Dynamite.

When she got the call that her brother was admitted due to his bad health, she said she called her two friends – Mojo Rawley and Samurai del Sol – who went over to her house to assist.

“My heart and my mind were in the cross hairs, as I was having to prioritize and juggle every emotion and responsibility in between,” Mone wrote.

She said that she was then surprised by over 20 of her cousins, aunts, uncles, and family friends who came to watch her wrestle that night, but none of whom were aware of the situation back at home yet.

“Not only was seeing my family such a surprise but another blessing I received came from the immediate response as I called Tony Khan to relay what was going on,” Mone added. “WITHOUT HESITATION, Tony said he would help.”

She noted that Khan took her with him on his private jet and on the way to Jacksonville, they made a detour to stop in Orlando to drop her off so she could be with her family.

“No lie, I’m actually crying tears of joy and gratitude as I write this. I’m so blessed and grateful to be working at a company like AEW and to have a leader whose motto is “family first,'” Mone continued.
