Women’s wrestling veteran Mercedes Martinez is All Elite.
Tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite featured the last semifinals match of the AEW TBS Title Tournament. Jade Cargill defeated Thunder Rosa to advance to the finals, after a masked assailant took out Thunder Rosa when the ref was distracted.
After the match, Thunder Rosa attacked Cargill in frustration, and the masked assailant came to Cargill’s rescue. When Thunder Rosa was subdued, the assailant was revealed to be women’s wrestling veteran Mercedes Martinez.
After the reveal, Tony Khan took to Twitter to announce the signing.
Martinez last appeared for AEW on Oct. 30, 2019 in an episode of AEW Dark, teaming with Big Swole to fight Bunny and Sadie Gibbs. Prior to that, Martinez had one another appearance for AEW, in August 2019, in the All Out 2019 Casino Battle Royal.
Martinez has spent the last few months taking the indies on storm, and appearing for Impact Wrestling on various cards. The 20-year veteran was released from WWE in August.
