When Ortiz and Santana initially came to AEW, the group had “Proud N Powerful;” by Bodega Bamz as their theme song. They later had to change their theme to “I Am Proud, I Am Powerful” for a very good reason.
Speaking during a Captain’s Corner virtual signing, Ortiz explained why they had to change their theme. YouTube has a very strict terms of service and they were violating that every time they walked to the ring.
“We’ve been very fortunate to know rappers, shoutout to Bodega Bamz, he was our first entrance music. We had to change it. A lot of people asked why we changed our music. We were having a lot of issues because Bodega Bamz put up our theme song on Spotify and other streaming services,” he said.
Ortiz continued to explain that, “YouTube would get flagged every single time we would do Dark or a clip of our song would be on YouTube, it would cause issues. If they put up a three-hour Dark: Elevation [show], if our music played, they would flag the whole entire three-hour Dark: Elevation because of our music. We were having so much issues, which is why we changed our theme song.”
Ortiz and Santana are currently signed to AEW and aligned with Eddie Kingston on AEW Television and feuding with The Jericho Appreciation Society.
Santana, Ortiz, and Kingston are all set to team up against Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia, and Jake Hager on AEW Dynamite, on April 13.
