Match-of-the-Day: Athena v Mercedes Martinez

This battle occured twice.  On Volume 43, Sunday afternoon, Mercedes and Athena ended in a draw after a double count-out.  The fans chant for a restart, but mercedes refuses and walks back to the lockeroom.  Athena's music starts playing and the fans start chanting her name.  It appears that Mercedes has done a heel-turn and Athena is now a "face."  The rematch will come on Volume 44 -- later that same day (I will feature that match later in the month.
