Mercedes Martinez on ROH and Interim title

Mercedes Martinez has decided to talk about Ring Of Honor in an interview for the AEW Unrestricted podcast “I think it just came out of nowhere, to be honest,” she said, as quoted by wrestlinginc. “I think Ring Of Honor — and if anyone knows my history with Ring Of Honor, I was with them for a short period of time back in 2006-ish.

They didn’t really have a women’s division. It was kind of like you go in, you wrestle. We were the attraction match. At that time, women’s wrestling wasn’t as big as it was now, so it was kind of just finding your mode in every company that you could do.

“So, it wasn’t like there was a title, we were just wrestling just to be on this big company that was just getting started, it was just getting its roots down. It was something big for a lot of female wrestlers to be a part of.

Eventually, we parted ways and I did my own thing, and Ring Of Honor kept growing, but still, there wasn’t this women’s division”.

Interim title

Mercedes Martinez emphasized how important the Interim title is to her “For me to be a champion, even if it’s an Interim Title because I look at it as an Interim Title is a kind of like a chance to show your worth.

I know Deonna Purrazzo is the official champion for Ring Of Honor,” she said. “And for them to say, ‘hey, the Interim Title, maybe it’s not a real title,’ but to me, it is. “It’s kind of like a callback, the way I look at it.

For them to say, ‘hey, here’s the chance to win a title, yes, Deonna wasn’t available, but we still want to give you the chance to hold this title, level up the division.’ When there wasn’t a division back when I was in Ring Of Honor, that’s something I take personally”.
