Mercedes Martinez was injured during this week’s edition of NXT. Martinez was in a mixed tag team match with Jake Atlas against Xia Li and Boa of Tian Sha when Li kicked her in the head. The kick caused Martinez to fall to the mat where Li covered her, though Martinez was unable to keep her shoulders on the mat. The referee stopped the match seconds later and awarded it to Tian Sha, despite Martinez pulling herself by the ropes. According to Sean Ross Sapp, Martinez was sent to the hospital for further evaluation. There is no word on her condition or when she could be able to return to the ring.
