If you’re a fan of ROH then you know who Punishment Martinez is and if you’re only a fan of WWE then you will soon know him. At this time we’re not sure what WWE is going to end up calling them, but we will know soon enough.
PW Insider has confirmed that Punishment Martinez has signed a WWE contract. This was expected and highly rumored after Martinez dropped the ROH Television Title recently, but this new report means it’s actually becoming reality.
The 36-year-old star broke into the public eye as he competed in the 2016 ROH Prospect Tournament and he became a regular at the Monster Factory before that. The 6′ 7″ 250 pounder was born in New York but raised in the municipality of Dorado, Puerto Rico. He has a lot to offer including an uncanny ability to cut a menacing promo.
It might only be a matter of time before Punishment Martinez starts making a big impression in NXT and WWE.
