On Saturday, following two nights of Impact Wrestling tapings in Mexico City, Santana of LAX confirmed the team’s departure from the promotion.
He wrote: “Last night we wrestled our final match with IMPACT Wrestling. 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”.
Santana & Ortiz were introduced as the new members of LAX in March 2017 alongside Diamante and manager Konnan. As a team, they quickly became one of the strongest acts in the company, winning the Impact tag titles four times and having incredible matches with Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix that raised their profile.
Their final match with Impact was taped Friday night at Fronton Mexico with LAX taking on Willie Mack & Rich Swann. The locker room emptied during the post-match and gave Santana & Ortiz a big send-off.
