Santana and Ortiz’s heated feud took center stage during the AEW Rampage Grand Slam tapings, as reported by Fightful Select. This storyline aims to delve into and, hopefully, resolve the real-life issues that have simmered between the two for nearly two years.
The tensions date back to early 2022 when Santana and Eddie Kingston found themselves at odds with Santana, though the precise reasons for this rift remain undisclosed. According to sources within AEW, Eddie Kingston has continued to express his feelings about the situation since Santana’s return, yet remained open to the possibility of working with him.
