Former Ring of Honor star Punishment Martinez made his NXT debut, and it was quite the moment for the wrestler. Despite coming up short in a match against Matt Riddle, Martinez had nothing but good things to say about the experience.
“Man, I’ll be honest. I didn’t know it was ever going to happen,” said Martinez. “Working close to 15 years, you kind o, don’t lose hope, but you don’t think it’s realistic and then to finally experience it? I was shaking. After so many years you don’t get the shakes anymore, but I couldn’t stop shaking out there. I think I’m still shaking a bit now. It’s surreal. I want to say thank you to anyone that has helped me get here. It’s insane.”
