Santana and Ortiz have been a fixture in the AEW tag team division after signing with the company shortly after its formation. They made a huge splash by attacking the Lucha Brothers at All Out in 2019. So far tag team gold has escaped Proud and Powerful.
The duo believes they’ve put in the right amount of effort to finally have their run at the top of the division. Santana spoke about the team being prepared for their big moment on Busted Open Radio.
“I think it’s about that time that we start making our way and working up to that and I mean, we’ve had our moments within the last two years and stuff. We’ve had our moments that, every time we’ve been given the ball and the opportunity, we’ve done our best to hit it out the park and stuff but I think it’s about that time that we start chasing down that gold and I mean the fans want it. Everybody is so hype about it and so — the support is immense and all these things but yeah man, I feel like everybody’s getting pissed off already, impatient, including me. I’m super impatient. I’m man enough to admit that, whatever. But, you know, we’ll see what happens. I’ve gotten to a point where I’m just like it is what it is. Let’s see what happens. I’m gonna continue putting in the work on my end and controlling the things that I can control myself and everything else, it is what it is, you know?”
Ortiz thinks the wait will make the payoff even more sweet. He said he knows it will happen. He believes the cream will rise to the top of the AEW tag team ranks.
“Definitely the more patient one. I’m more of the hippie, man. I’m like, ‘It’ll happen. I know it’ll happen because we’ve been putting in the work’ so, I’m in no rush and it’s gonna make it that much better when we do get to the top of the mountain, you know what I mean? It’ll happen. There’s — as the old saying goes, ‘Cream rises to the top’ man and as long as we keep putting in the work and we still continue to be the best that we can possibly be, there will be no choice but to give us the opportunity and we’ll get it.”
There is plenty for the team to do in AEW while they wait for their chance. The tag team roster is loaded with big names like the Young Bucks, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly, Jurassic Express, and more. Santana and Ortiz will eventually get their shot. They’re hoping to make it count.
