When Punishment Martinez dropped the ROH TV title at the recent TV TV tapings, the news got out that he was on his way to WWE.
PWInsider confirmed this week that Martinez has signed his deal and he will be reporting to the Performance Center and the NXT brand soon.
Martinez, 36, had an offer to stay with ROH but opted for the WWE deal. He has the look and size that WWE likes and he’s pretty good for his level experience.
Martinez broke into the business in 2014 after training at the Monster Factory in New Jersey. There is no word yet when he will debut in NXT but one possible date is during Takeover: War Games on the night before Survivor Series in Los Angeles.
