Mercedes Martinez has opened up about why she left RETRIBUTION, in a new interview with PWInsider.com.
Martinez recently returned to NXT television, having appeared alongside RETRIBUTION when the faction first revealed their new individual identities, before going AWOL several weeks later. However, the NXT star has opened up about wanting to “make the most of her career” and the opportunity not being for her.
“I was given an opportunity, and I took the opportunity not knowing what the outcome would be, you got to make the best with anything you can, but I think when that opportunity came, it just wasn’t for me. When you hit the pinnacle of your career, as I did, hitting 20 years, you want to make the most of your career, and make it part of a legacy…I just think being part of that group, it’s not hidden fact that it was me, I don’t hide the fact, I don’t mention it, only because it was just a small part of what the bigger picture is.
Martinez would go on to say there were no hard feelings, she just had a different plan, before wishing them success.
It’s kind of one of those things where it’s, “this is where Mercedes is, but maybe it doesn’t fit the mold, doesn’t fit her career’. It was no hard feelings, I just think we both had two different plans, I wanted one thing to go one way, and they had a different outlook. I wish them success, to all those part of the group, and I wish them the best.”
