She is an amazing wrestler with many titles under her name. Unfortunately, she could not replicate her previous success in WWE. These were some of the sentiments she expressed on Twitter:

Mercedes now has her sights set on the next chapter of her life. She has been through the wringer in WWE and has reaped the rewards of her hard work over the years as well. Part of the journey is the end, and Mercedes’s time in WWE has unfortunately ended.

Some fans theorize that WWE is spoon-feeding their rival company, AEW, with good and talented wrestlers. AEW has already capitalized on released superstars such as Mark Henry, Miro, and Malakai Black, just to name a few.
