The Mastermind of NXT, Triple H, congratulated Punishment Martinez on Twitter and gave him some high praise while also sharing the typical new recruit photo that The Game took with Punishment:
Imposing, unrelenting, focused… and ready. This is just the beginning for @RealPunishment in @WWENXT – I expect to see big things from him. Congratulations on your debut.
