Santana & Ortiz Return To AEW TV

Santana and Ortiz AEW

Santana and Ortiz are back on AEW and made their presence felt in a big way.

Ahead of the Stadium Stampede match at All In, Jon Moxley would face Rey Fenix on the final episode of Dynamite before the pay-per-view on Sunday. Moxley would defeat Fenix by choking out the former Tag Team Champion.

Not happy with ending the punishment there, Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta entered the ring each with crowbars in hand. Eddie Kington and Penta attempted to make the save but were stopped on the ramp by Santana and Ortiz.

Back in the ring, Fenix was struck with the crowbar followed by The Blackpool Combat Club retreating as The Best Friends came down to the ring. Fenix was carried out of the ring on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance. Renee Paquette tried to get a comment from Kingston, but an emotional Kingston simply stated he would handle things at Wembley.

With Santana and Ortiz siding with The BCC and Kingston’s team now down a member, the Stadium Stampede match has been made into a 5 vs. 5 match.

The attack was carried out on Fenix to write him off of television, as Fenix is unable to travel to the UK for All In.

This was the first of multiple changes to the All In card on the August 23rd Dynamite, with AR Fox also being removed from the Tag Team Coffin match.

When Were Santana And Ortiz Last On AEW TV Together?

Santana has been out of action for over a year following a knee injury that took place in the 2022 Blood and Guts match, where The Jericho Appreciation Society lost to The Blackpool Combat Club. Ortiz has made the occasional appearance on Dynamite and Rampage following the unfortunate injury sustained to his tag team partner.

Also on Dynamite, a new championship match was added to the All In card.
