Even before these videos from after the Sept. 8 episode were released, there was speculation Mercedes Martinez’s NXT run could be a relatively short one. It’s believed the woman who was a trailblazer on the independents was a part of the RETRIBUTION promo on last Monday’s Raw, and that should could eventually be revealed as a member of the invading group.
Sometimes a big loss like the one Martinez took in a steel cage to Rhea Ripley is all the send-off you get from the black-and-gold brand. Mercedes is getting a little bit more story.
Could her being cut from the Robert Stone Brand, and being served a restraining order to stay away from Stone, be the impetus for falling in with a bunch of WWE Universe-hating radicals?
