Martinez took on former partner turned rival, Ivelisse in the main event. The two competitors blew the roof off the place as they beat and battered each other in an awesome affair. Ivelisse would gain the win by nefarious means when she rolled up the champ with her feet on the ropes. The victory now makes Ivelisse a 3-time SHINE Champion.
On a sour note, Martinez was injured during the match when she was thrown into the ring post. She finished the match but needed to be helped from the ring and to the back. There is no word as of yet in regard to the severity of the injury and we are all hoping that it isn’t too bad and Martinez will be back quickly.
