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.

The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more like announced matches and preview videos, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event and if we’re able to update it in time. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2500 events since we started this in late 2018. Events from the largest promotions in the world to small Indie promotions. We started with United States & Canadian promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so may have to click at the bottom to see more on a certain day.
