Mercedes Martinez is perhaps the most well travelled female wrestler in all of WWE. She’s a 20 year veteran of the ring, and is finally getting her big break as part of WWE NXT. Fans will already been aware of her from her great runs in the Mae Young Classics, and is now set to take the NXT Women’s Division by storm. She’s got the skills, experience, and grit to become NXT Women’s Champion, and Io Shirai better watch her back. Santana Garrett would be her opponent, but things didn’t look too good for her once the bell rang.
Mercedes Martinez Reintroduced Herself In Dominant Fashion
Santana Garrett rushed right into Martinez, before being forced into the corner with vicious strikes. Garrett would counter a rushing Martinez with a rollup attempt, which was just stopped. Martinez would control the match after this, and a handspring back elbow wouldn’t be enough to stop this, as Garrett would be run through with a big boot. She’d resist a double underhook suplex, but Martinez shrugged off a superkick to nail a Fisherman Buster, and this one was done. There was no frills to this one, and while Garrett tried her best? It was absolutely not enough.
A Future Championship Contender No Doubt
It’s become very clear that Martinez is going to go on a war path for the NXT Women’s Championship. She’s not here to make friends, and she’s absolutely ruthless. That is the definition of dangerous, and she’ll make a dangerous champion if she gets that belt. Io Shirai has Tegan Nox on her plate next, with Candice LeRae not far behind after the street fight victory, and Rhea Ripley will want another shot. The field is crowded, but Martinez has the skills to push to the front if given the chance.
The only woman that showed more dominance in NXT is Raquel Gonzalez, but Martinez is a more complete package, having power, speed, and techinque. Do you think we’re looking at our next NXT Women’s Champion? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
