Mercedes Martinez is hitting a huge milestone in her career. Nov. 12 marks 20 years since the Latina Sensation started in the wrestling business. She celebrates this accomplishment by taking a trip down memory lane on her Twitter. She will also be celebrating her 40th birthday on Nov. 17.
She celebrates her 20 years by stating that her successes are “measured in small goals.” What draws a lot of fans to Martinez is how much she prides herself on doing things her way and not fitting any type of “wrestling mold” which is what she continues to celebrate.
Some congratulations took there rounds on social media to congratulate Martinez including the SHIMMER promotion where she spent many years at.
Martinez was a highly decorated wrestler on the indies and won titles from promotions such as Shimmer, Shine, RiSE, Femmes Fatales, and WSU just to name a few. She hasn’t won gold so far with her time with WWE as a member of its NXT brand but it is only a matter of time. She officially signed with WWE in January of this year. Her last match was in September against Rhea Ripley in a steel cage.
Everyone at Diva Dirt wants to congratulate Mercedes on her 20 years of excellence and commitment to making women’s wrestling what it is today.
