NXT Superstar Mercedes Martinez was recently on WWE’s The Bump. During the show Martinez talked about when she found out she would be appearing in the Royal Rumble.
“I found out about the Royal Rumble, literally, the night before. They flew me out the night before and just said, ‘Hey. You’re part of the Royal Rumble. You’re just gonna be an alternate.’ I was like, ‘Whoa. That’s awesome!’ It was time for me to make my mark and prove to the world why I am one of the best female wrestlers out there. It was exciting and nerve-wracking. I’m very humbled; if there’s an opportunity that I get to showcase my talent, I take it.”
