Mercedes Martinez worked a tag team match with Jake Atlas against Xia Li and Boa on Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT.
At the end of it, Martinez was knocked out and fell face-first when she took a roundhouse kick to the head by Li. The match was stopped. It was previously reported that Martinez was checked out backstage by the medical staff and went to be further evaluated at a hospital.
During today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer talked about the injury. It was said that she did suffer a concussion, but that she was said to be “ok.”
Alvarez: “Apparently Mercedes is alright, but every time you get a report from WWE, you hear, ‘their ok’ and this is AEW as well. But you never know because Ricky Starks was ok and it turns out that he had a fractured neck.”
Meltzer: “Well, she’s out of the hospital, they did take her to the hospital and she did have a concussion. Look…concussions…we’re a day out. A concussion could mean she’s fine to wrestle next week or she might not be ready to wrestle for six months. You never know and you don’t know the day after so she’s fine in the sense of she’s fine, but how quick she’s going to heal, concussions are unpredictable.”
