AEW star Mercedes Martinez feels her current ROH Women’s World Championship run is “full circle”.
Martinez defeated Willow Nightingale to win the Interim ROH Women’s World Title at Supercard of Honor on April 1. She then beat Deonna Purrazzo to become the undisputed ROH Women’s World Champion on the May 4 edition of AEW Dynamite.
Speaking on Complex Unsanctioned, the AEW star talked about the full circle moment of holding a title from a promotion she first worked for back in 2006.
“It feels good to be honest. What people don’t realize is that I’ve been in this business for almost going on 22 years right now. It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time, right? But when I first started at Ring Of Honor there wasn’t really a women’s division. There were females there wrestling, but it wasn’t considered an actual women’s division.”
Mercedes continued on to talk about how much of a blessing the title win was for her, saying:
“For me to still be wrestling and for Ring of Honor to have this division and actually have a title to say, ‘Hey, you guys now take the spotlight,’ and for me to hold this title is kind of like full circle. It’s a blessing and I just want to be able to have this title and really do it justice as best as I can with the opportunities that I get under the AEW banner. It’s something really special, I hold it dear to my heart. With all the championships that I’ve held, this one probably means the most right now to me.”
Mercedes Martinez last successfully defended her ROH Women’s World Title against Viva Van on the May 31 edition of AEW Dark.
