- In this video, Shelly Martinez has fun paying tribute to Triple H. Before she got signed to WWE and became Ariel, she worked as a bartender at a strip club and would perform his entrance when business was slow.
"The DJ had WWF (at the time) entrance music and I would always walk down the ramp and do the HHH spitting of the water while his music played," she explains on ShellyMartinez.com. "It's how I killed time until happy hour. Well, at the Wrestling Guys Store I decided to revisit that energy with pride."
