As seen on this week’s episode of NXT, Mercedes Martinez and Jake Atlas partnered up and squared off against Xia Li and Boa. Unfortunately, not everything went according to plan in the match.
Martinez has been feuding with Tian Sha for a while now and Atlas provided help on this week’s show. However, during the match, Martinez was on the end of a hard kick from Xia Li that apparently knocked her out.
Mercedes Martinez immediately fell to the ground headfirst, which shocked many fans. Based upon medical professionals when Martinez suffered the blow her head and neck were “stung” in a semi-upright position. This of course is how the body reacts to this kind of trauma. After the blow to the head, the match was stopped and Martinez was checked in the back and staff were told she was being taken to the hospital for further medical evaluation. As of this writing there is no further update. Story Developing
