Mercedes Martinez is the ROH Women’s Champion, and she recently talked about how the title win feels like coming “full circle” for her. Martinez spoke with Complex Unsanctioned for a new interview and you can check out some highlights below, per Wrestling Inc:

On holding the ROH Women’s Title after she first worked there in 2006: “It feels good to be honest. What people don’t realize is that I’ve been in this business for almost going on 22 years right now. It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time, right? But when I first started at Ring Of Honor there wasn’t really a women’s division. There were females there wrestling, but it wasn’t considered an actual women’s division.”

On what the title win means to her: “For me to still be wrestling and for Ring of Honor to have this division and actually have a title to say, ‘Hey, you guys now take the spotlight,’ and for me to hold this title is kind of like full circle. It’s a blessing and I just want to be able to have this title and really do it justice as best as I can with the opportunities that I get under the AEW banner. It’s something really special, I hold it dear to my heart. With all the championships that I’ve held, this one probably means the most right now to me.”
