Former Ring of Honor World Television Champion Punishment Martinez made his highly anticipated in-ring debut for WWE this Friday night at an NXT Live event in Fort Pierce, FL.
For now at least, it looks like they’re going to let him keep the “Punishment” Martinez name going forward, although that can always change at a moments notice. He was announced with the full moniker on his way to the ring, and in a post-match promo WWE uploaded to their Twitter account (seen below) he used the term “Punish” or “Punishment” several times.
