Mercedes Martinez provides an injury update.
This past weekend at SHIMMER Volume 111, Mercedes Martinez suffered an injury while teaming with Cheerleader Melissa against DASH Chisako & Hiroyo Matsumoto. The match was stopped after Martinez took a frog splash and couldn't move for roughly ten minutes. She was taken out of the ring on a stretcher.
In a post on Facebook, Martinez revealed she suffered bruised ribs in the bout.
To every single fan that have expressed concern for me in the last 24hrs. I cant imagine what everyone was thinking while watching LIVE in person or on fite TV.
TRUST....I'm a strong and resilient wrestler and can take a beating and keep ticking, but sometimes your body just had enough and needs a breather.
Yes, I couldnt breathe
Yes, I lost feeling in my face
Yes, my whole entire left side of my body was in shock and unbearable pain
No, I never thought I would be carried out of the ring as every wrestler ALWAYS wants to be able to walk out on their own.
HOWEVER, even in tears, in pain, and the occasional laugh bc lexie Fyfe or melissa tried to cheer me up....I can hear you, the fans!! The overwhelming chants of my name.
It's a scary moment when u think everything u worked hard for comes crashing down in a split second. U take it in, soak it up and try not to overthink the negative. Positive thinking goes a long way.....
With that being said, my official diagnosis is:
Which I told the dr "thank u for making my day bc I can still wrestle!!" To which he replied: "u need to rest up and see how u feel. There will be no person being thrown on top of u for awhile."....and some other stuff which I can read on my medical sheet,Hehe....
my reply, "doc, i got u!! I'll be the 1 throwing other ppl on top of ppl instead. No worries, I'll follow what u say."
Needless to say, I had a cool doc and I'm still as sarcastic and funny.
In all seriousness and from my humble heart of Rican awesomeness:
Thank you. To buying merch, to supporting me, and giving me another reason to keep doing what I love.....each and every fan out there has touched my heart and it humbled me even more.
But dont think I'm soft!! I'm still a badass!! --
