This is only a rumor, so take it for what it’s worth.
According to a new report from F4WOnline, former ROH Television Champion Punishment Martinez has finished up with the company and will be heading to WWE.
PWInsider also reported that Martinez dropped the title to Jeff Cobb at tonight’s television tapings in Las Vegas, signifying his finish with the company.

It has also been reported that NXT has been interested in Martinez and seems to be the most logical destination for him.

Martinez broke into the business training with the Monster Factory in New Jersey and became a regular with ROH after a strong performance in the 2016 Top Prospect Tournament, which was won by Lio Rush. He was signed to a contract in July 2016. During his run with the company, Martinez was aligned with Kevin Sullivan and BJ Whitmer, won the 2017 Survival of the Fittest and toured with New Japan via ROH’s working relationship with that company.
I actually know nothing about this superstar. However, if NXT is interested in him, then he must definitely have some potential!
