Mercedes Martinez this first half of the year has some surprises up her sleeve, but then again, why am I not surprised? Arguably the most influential women’s wrestlers of this day and age, Mercedes can still get the job done no matter where she wrestles and who she faces off with.
As the reigning NCW Femme Fatales Champion, she has a target on her back and everybody is gunning for her. After turning back the challenges put in front of her she has really proven to be a top commodity in women’s wrestling this year. Next month, Mercedes will defend her belly against Courtney Rush, LuFisto, and Cheerleader Melissa. Don’t expect it to be a good night for the Latina Sensation.
While in SHIMMER, the two woman power trip tried to get momentum as a unit, but it doesn’t work out as they both lost to LuFisto & Kana and Kellie Skater and Tomoka Nakagawa respectively. But all in all it shows why both of them need to work together and in my opinion, form a strong stable to keep the good guys from being successful. But I don’t know if that will happen though.
The second half will see a more dangerous Mercedes as she tries to hold on to the gold for another few months and hopefully come SHIMMER season, become more dominant in the promotion with Melissa by her side, because there is one thing every fan needs to know about Mercedes Martinez and that’s ferocity at its best.
