    For a pro wrestling school that boasts alumni like The Big Show and King Kong Bundy, it is easy to see just how appropriate the name The World Famous Monster Factory really is. One of the latest monsters created by Danny Cage is the 6’6”, 253 lbs Punisher Martinez! After impressive showings in matches in Baltimore and New York in front of Ring of Honor crowds, Martinez has been one of the most asked-about names heading into 2016. It is with great excitement that Ring of Honor announces Punisher Martinez as the next competitor to enter the Top Prospect Tournament!

    Martinez comes the 2016 TPT with a background in traditional Japanese Go Ju Ryu karate and accolades at the New York state and national levels in full-contact martial arts. Beyond training at the Monster Factory, Martinez has impressed Ring of Honor officials, including ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness, and has been supplementing his training by sparring at the ROH Dojo.

    The big man from the Big Apple often surprises his opponents with his him combination of power and agility. Martinez uses a move he calls the “South of Heaven” chokeslam that he has put opponents away with in independent competition up and down the East Coast. But Martinez is also skilled in grappling and mat wrestling, a rarity for someone of his size, through training with UFC and All-American amateur wrestlers.

    Punisher is among the hardest working wrestlers on the independents today with a dark side that drives his success. One of the largest competitors in this year’s Top Prospect Tournament, Martinez will be sure to take advantage of the mental as well as physical advantages he has with his intimidating presence and his bone-chilling declarations. Martinez is no doubt a favorite to become 2016’s Top Prospect and earn a ROH contract!
