It has been reported that ‘The Latina Sensation’ Mercedes Martinez has signed a contract with WWE and is expected to report to the WWE Performance Center later this month.
Martinez has previously appeared for WWE at the 2017 and 2018 Mae Young Classic tournament and on numerous NXT programming.
Regarded as one of the best wrestlers in the world, Mercedes is a stellar addition to any promotion and WWE has seemingly added the 20-year veteran to their ranks.
Martinez appeared for AEW in the latter part of last year as a surprise entrant in the Casino Battle Royale at All Out in August and in November she appeared on AEW Dark to team with Big Swole to take on Allie and Sadie Gibbs.
Martinez in the current AWS Heavyweight Champion, and promoter, Bart Kapitzke seemingly confirmed the reports when he advised SoCalUncensored.com that he would likely have a tournament to crown a new champion.
There has been no official word on this announcement as of yet. We will report any further news as and when it arrives.
