Pro wrestlers can go through many different eras throughout their careers. Although Ortiz hasn’t been featured on AEW television in a while, since his real-life problems with Santana caused a rift, he hasn’t stopped showing up in the gym.

It’s always interesting to see physical transformations in pro wrestling. Those transformations can come along for any number of reason. We’re not sure about Ortiz’s exact motivations, but he’s been putting in some serious work in the gym.

The Proud n Powerful member recently showed off his incredible physical transformation. Years ago, he looked far different, but now he is chiseled with defined pecs and abs.

That “before” photo also included Ortiz wearing a t-shirt, and you could still see his gut. The latest “after” photo was shirtless, and you can certainly tell a difference.


Santana is out of action with an injury. Thankfully, AEW took care of him during that time and continued cutting him checks. That is one of the things Tony Khan does for his talent that is sometimes overlooked.

Proud n Powerful aren’t a feature on AEW television anymore. They were once a part of the Inner Circle, but those days are in the past. It seems like Ortiz is still ready for action, no matter where it comes from.

You can check out the photo below to see Ortiz’s impressive physical transformation. In the meantime, keep it tuned here at Ringside News for more.
