Mercedes Mone Says She Was Depressed After Paige's Injury During WWE House Show

-- Mercedes Mone was recently interviewed by Hot 97 prior to AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door and spoke on a variety of issues. One of the interesting topics was Mone being labeled as "unsafe" after an injury to her opponent, Saraya/Paige, during a WWE house show which caused the latter to retire from WWE.

"I was so depressed by it. That definitely sent me on a spiral of depression because wrestling has always been my biggest goal and dream and I’ve always wanted to be the greatest at it. So, to hear any kind of noise that people might not think you’re safe. It wasn’t even the boys in the back, it was just the fans thinking you’re not safe. It’s scary sometimes, but that’s the business that we’re in. You never know when you’re going to get hurt. You never know when you're going to sprain something, break a neck, break a knee. It's just the business. You have to go out there knowing you're going to put your life on the line. But we do everything we can to protect each other and unfortunately that happened."
