Hello, Lovelies! Roll out the red carpet and protect your neck because hard-hitting legend Mercedes Martinez is on the show! Ahead of her Impact Knockouts title match against Mickie James at Turning Point Saturday, Martinez sits down with Brian Bell to chat the significance of stepping into the ring with James, how LGBTQ and female visibility has improved during her career, wrestling Cassandro at Rise Pride & Joy and overcoming anti-LGBTQ stigmas that existed early in her career.
