Mensah-Stock was welcomed to the Allegiant Stadium alongside American teammate Gable Steveson, who also earned an Olympic wrestling gold medal at Tokyo 2020.

Both athletes were given a standing ovation as they made their way to the ring, where they were acknowledged for their incredible achievements.

Mensah-Stock triumphed in the women’s 68 kilogram division at Tokyo 2020, defeating Blessing Oborududu of Nigeria 4-1 to take gold. In doing so, she became the first black woman ever to win an Olympic wrestling title.

The 28-year-old has previously expressed a desire to move into the world of WWE. Shortly after she earned her Olympic gold medal, Mensah-Stock was asked whether she would consider stepping into the WWE ring.

“I want to,” an enthusiastic Mensah-Stock replied.

Olympic gold medalists @MensahTamStock and @GableSteveson are HERE at #SummerSlam!🥇👏

Wrestling legend and NXT founder Triple H hinted Mensah-Stock’s dream could soon become a reality after posting about her historic achievement on Twitter.

“Congratulations on a history-making gold medal at the #TokyoOlympics,” he posted. “The door to WWE is always open!!”

Steveson, an Olympic gold medallist in the men’s 125kg category, has also shown interest in a move to WWE. He was pictured with Triple H while backstage at SummerSlam.

This year’s SummerSlam was packed with huge matches, including several title bouts. This included the SmackDown Women’s Championship, which prompted a surprise return from Becky Lynch.

The star made her first appearance since May 2020, when she announced she was pregnant with her first child and would be taking a break from wrestling.

After Lynch made her entrance, she took to the ring to quickly dispatch Carmella, a replacement for the missing Sasha Banks, before challenging Bianca Belair. Belair accepted, but the resulting match lasted less than 30 seconds. Lynch scored a pinfall to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion.
