Santana & Ortiz Name Dream Opponents Outside Of AEW
Now that the forbidden door has been opened
Since signing with All Elite Wrestling, Santana and Ortiz have had memorable tag team matches against the likes of Best Friends and The Young Bucks.
A wealth of other opponents have since opened up for the Inner Circle team from AEW's working relationships with IMPACT and NJPW, though, and Santana and Ortiz revealed which tag teams they would like to face during a chat with TSN.
"For me, it's plain and simple - [Impact's] Motor City Machine Guns [Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley]. I think about it all the time and I'm like, 'Damn, why did they come back when we left?' We just missed them, but now with things being open, it's very much a possibility. And [IWGP Tag Team Champions] Guerrillas of Destiny [Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa], man. I'd love to wrestle them, too. They're great. I love the intensity they bring. I think there would be something there," Ortiz said.
Santana then named Ring Of Honor's The Briscoe Brothers as a team he would like to lock horns with again.
"Another team that we actually had the privilege to wrestle back in Germany for the World Tag Team League with wXw [in 2017] and we'd love to do it again now with the experience we've gained since then is [Ring of Honor's] The Briscoe Brothers. To us, they are tag team wrestling," Santana stated.
"We've said this in numerous interviews and we'll say it again and have no issues saying it - they are the best tag team in the world. I don't care what anybody says. Those dudes don't take it easy. Mark and Jay are dudes who if they're not going to go all-in in a match, then why bother? The fact that they've been going hard for so long, you have to respect it and we hope we get to mix it up with those dudes again."
