Former Lucha Underground Champion Marty ‘The Moth’ Martinez has shared his ambition to become a part of All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Martinez spoke about being sidelined for the past four months due to two herniated discs. He recently returned to the ring for Support All Pro Wrestling. In the interview, he admitted that his return bout, which took place yesterday, was “[…] a little earlier than I want, but it’s going to be a good test to see where I’m at. I didn’t want to have fusion surgery on my back because I have plenty of years left of wrestling, so I got stem cells shot directly into my spine last week.”
Looking to the future, Martinez confessed he would love to sign with AEW. When it comes to a potential opponent in that promotion, ‘The Moth’ was quick to name Jon Moxley.
“My intention is to get as healthy as I can so I can say what’s up to AEW. It’s going to be a crazy war against WWE. I have friends on both sides, but black and gold are more of my colors. And I’d love to get in the ring with Jon Moxley,” Martinez said.
He continued, “My goal is to do whatever it takes to get to the black and gold of AEW. I’ll have to do some slight changes to my character, and I’m going to bring some pieces of my Twitch channel into wrestling, too. There will be a little bit different branding, but trust me when I say you’ll still see that same type of crazy.”
