Once that match airs on ROH TV it will have been the last time that viewers see the 2017 'Survival Of The Fittest' tournament winner on ROH programming as PWInsider is reporting that the match with Jeff Cobb was Martinez's last for Ring Of Honor and he is officially done with the company. The site added that once Martinez got to the back he said his goodbyes to everyone. September 29th was Martinez's last scheduled date with Ring Of Honor and he made the decision to not re-sign.

He was brought into ROH in 2015 and has been with the company since then. Martinez captured the ROH World Television Championship this past June and fast forward to present day and he has completed his contracted dates with Ring Of Honor and is now free to compete wherever he pleases.
