LAX’s Santana and Ortiz bid farewell to Impact Wrestling

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The LAX tag team of Santana and Ortiz announced that they worked their final match for Impact Wrestling on Friday in Mexico City. “Last night we wrestled our final match with @impactwrestling,” Santana wrote on Instagram. “Our appreciation and gratitude for every single person there who had a hand in helping us get to this point, is absolutely endless. THANK YOU for the opportunity to show the world our passion and commitment to this business. And most of all, for the opportunity to represent our people and culture on a big stage. We are forever grateful. #ThankYouIMPACT”

Powell’s POV: The contracts of Santana and Ortiz expire soon and they are expected to draw interest from WWE and AEW. It will be interesting to see if the duo are able to bring the LAX name with them. Impact management typically allows talent to take their names and gimmicks with them, but this one could be different in that the LAX tag team was originally used for Homicide and Hernandez. In other words, it’s always possible that Impact opts to keep the name with the idea of potentially creating another LAX somewhere down the road. At any rate, it’s nice to see Santana and Ortiz leave in a classy manner, and I assume the talented duo is about to do very well for themselves wherever they end up next. Could they be Chris Jericho’s mystery partners for AEW’s October 2 launch on TNT in his match against Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks?
