Last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite was supposed to feature The Rock N’ Roll Express awarding the AEW World Tag Team Championships to the inaugural titleholders.
Instead, the legendary tag team was taken out at the hands of Santana and Ortiz.
Speaking to Comic Book, the multiple-time NWA Tag Team Champions (via Ricky Morton) had nothing but praise for the future of their attackers, who they wrestled at GCW Joey Janela’s Spring Break Part 2 in April of this year.
I’m going to tell you the truth, okay? During our match, [Santana] told me to come off his partner’s back, and sunset flip him and hold on. Watch the match. I sunset flipped him and held on. I didn’t know what was going on. See me in the ring, I raise up and go, ‘What the f— was that?’ If you watch the monitor, you’ll see me do it. I didn’t know that it went viral. It was in like two hours. [Santana & Ortiz] are one hell of a tag team. They’re absolutely phenomenal.”
Below is the above-mentioned Canadian Destroyer from Morton to Santana:
