Pro Wrestling stars Santana and Ortiz, spoke with Chris Van Vliet on his December 11th episode about a number of topics. Including who they think is the best tag team, the Jericho Cruise leading to AEW, almost signing with WWE instead of AEW. We have the full video and highlights below.
Santana and Ortiz on almost signing with WWE-
“We were about to turn down WWE, we sat down and were like we don’t want to burn a bridge. We never want to burn a bridge anywhere we go because that’s not how you do business. You should keep every avenue open. So he (Santana) had this whole spiel, this is what we were gonna say so we don’t burn a bridge.”- Ortiz
“So we go and we get cut off, and they were like listen, just think really about your decision…we were about to turn them down and we were like they’re making this really hard for us.”- Ortiz
“Pretty much they were like ‘write your own ticket and we’ll make it happen”- Santana
“It was for NXT with the guarantee to eventually go up to the main roster…What the ultimate decision was, do we want to be a part of something that’s already established or do we want be a part of something new and make history.”- Ortiz
Santana and Ortiz on the best Tag Team in Wrestling-
#1 will always, and we both agree and we usually don’t agree on a lot of things, The Briscoes….We always scream and I always say we’re the best but honestly we have to try surpass the Briscoes and I think that’s hard…I think they’re the best tag team of all time.”- Ortiz
“They just have kept the pace they’ve kept for so many years consistently.”- Santana
Ortiz on the Jericho Cruise-
Thanks to being able to do the The Jericho Cruise, the first one. Cause that pretty much was basically our job interview, that’s how we got in with everybody. We just had really good in ring chemistry with the Bucks and we got on with everybody.
