Former ROH TV Champion Punishment Martinez will be using that name when he makes his WWE NXT TV debut against Matt Riddle on tonight's episode. WWE posted the following to hype the match.
The King of Bros meets Punishment Martinez
Matt Riddle has been riding quite the wave since making his successful debut a few weeks back. This week, though, The King of Bros will have his work cut out for him as he goes up against a debuting Punishment Martinez.
Making his in-ring debut as an NXT Superstar, Martinez is a towering force (standing at 6'6"), who comes backed by a stacked résumé that includes multiple championship reigns. Riddle shares a commonality with Martinez in that regard, accumulating his own set of accolades on the independent circuit. Moreover, these two strikers are well familiar with one another, having crossed paths before coming to NXT. Previous contests removed, however, this matchup has barnburner written all over it.
Who will step out beyond the yellow ropes with the W?
