Retribution was originally set to have two females in the stable. Mia Yim, who became Reckoning, and Mercedes Martinez could have been a real force in the women’s tag team division, but it wasn’t meant to be. Now Martinez has provided a possible reason why she was asked to be removed.

Martinez was set to become Retaliation in the Retribution stable. She then requested to be pulled from the angle. A lot of fans had theories about why she did this, but Mercedes seemed to clear everything up.

Just a reminder: WE..ARE..STILL..IN..A… PANDEMIC!!! I have asthma and a immunocompromised son, so PLEASE take Covid-19 SERIOUS. Be safe, stay healthy. Wash ur hands regularly. AND…..WEAR YOUR MASKS for the safety of yourself and others like me and my son. THANKS MERCEDES

Mercedes Martinez has asthma, which is a terrible condition to have when COVID-19 is spreading so rapidly in the world. She urged people to wear their masks and take it seriously. This could have been a very good reason why she decided that going to the ThunderDome every week wasn’t a good idea for her at this time.


Martinez is still with the company, and the idea of WarGames is tempting for her. We’ll have to see if the former Retribution member makes her way back to the black and gold brand.
