If they weren’t proud, they wouldn’t be powerful.
When Santana & Ortiz first joined AEW, the group used the song “Proud N Powerful” by Bodega Bamz. However, the duo had to change the theme to “I Am Proud, I Am Powerful.”
During a virtual autograph session at Captain’s Corner, Ortiz explained why they had to change their subject.
“We were very lucky to know rappers, salute to Bodega Bamz, he was our first entrance music. We had to change it. A lot of people have asked why we changed our music. We had many problems uploading our theme song to Spotify and other streaming services because of Bodega Bamz. YouTube would report every time we did dark or if a clip of our song was on YouTube it would cause problems. If they released a three-hour Dark: Elevation [show], if our music played, they would mark the entire 3 hour Dark: Elevation because of our music. We had so many problems that’s why we changed our theme song.” he said.
Santana & Ortiz are currently linked to Eddie Kingston on AEW TV and feuding with the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Santana, Ortiz and Kingston will face off against Chris Jericho, Jake Hager and Daniel Garcia on the April 13 episode of AEW Dynamite.
