With his demonic demeanor and 6-foot-7, 272-pound frame, Punishment Martinez has been striking fear into his opponents in Ring of Honor since he burst onto the scene in the 2016 Top Prospect Tournament. He wasted no time shedding the prospect label. Martinez, who possesses the size and power of a super heavyweight, the agility and athleticism of a junior heavyweight, and an extensive martial arts background, also has a pronounced sadistic streak.
“The Creeper of Violence” briefly aligned himself with the evil duo of BJ Whitmer and Kevin Sullivan before going out on his own. Martinez showed everyone just how scary good he truly is by winning the 2017 Survival of the Fittest, defeating former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal along the way.
