Mercedes Martinez made a huge impression during her return last week to NXT. She hasn’t been in a match since early September where she was on the losing end of a cage match against Rhea Ripley. This time, she has her eye on the NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai as she decimated her with the return to the brand.
Martinez was a part of the RETRIBUTION stable that has found a home on the RAW brand. She would have gone by the name Retaliation and would have joined Mia Yim (Reckoning) as the second woman of the group. Prior to her new name officially being announced on television, she was removed from the stable. Now she is back and is ready to dominate.
She will be in action tonight but her opponent has not been announced at this time.
The landscape of competitors for Shirai is endless in NXT. Toni Storm had staked her claim just last week before Martinez pounced. Who do you see being the next challenger for Shirai heading into the new year?
