Diamante On A Potential LAX Reunion In AEW: "I'm Working On It, Don't Tell Nobody"

Diamante reflects upon her time in LAX all the time.

In 2017, IMPACT Wrestling re-launched the iconic faction with Homicide, Santana & Ortiz, Diamante, and Konnan as the manager. The group was wildly successful, even adding a few additional members along the way, but after Santana & Ortiz finished up with IMPACT in August 2019, the Latin American Xchange ceased to exist once again.

Appearing on Captain's Corner, Diamante reflected on her time in the group and how getting to work with industry legends made her feel like a kid in a candy store.

"It was a whirlwind. We all got hit up, and I honestly didn't know who they were going to choose for LAX, but let me tell you something, man, I'm glad it was Santana & Ortiz. Those are probably two of the best guys I've ever met in the business. Literally, Ortiz is an angel. He really, really is. He's a wonderful guy. It was crazy but I felt like I was ready for whatever opportunity was thrown at me. When I found out I was going to be in LAX, I was like, 'Wow, I got some shoes to fill.' So I went there with a lot of pride and ready to do work because it's a pretty legendary group to live up to. Getting to work with Homicide and Konnan was just, I was like a kid in a candy store. I was very grateful and appreciative to have legends like that in my corner, ready to work with me, ready to believe in me. Konnan hyped me up to do a bunch of the crazy shit that I did at IMPACT. It was cool being the one girl getting in the mix with the guys. C'mon, man, I got to do a moonsault to Marufuji. People only dream of working with Marufuji and here I am doing spots with him. It was very, very iconic and I reflect upon it all the time. At the moment it was hard to drink it all in because you're, 'What is my life?' I remember going home, sitting on the couch, leaning back and going, 'Wow, you're really doing this.' It was really cool. I reflect all the time," she said.

Now working for AEW, along with Santana & Ortiz, Diamante commented on the potential for an LAX reunion.

"I'm working on it. Don't tell nobody. LAX was just too good to not bring back. LAX is too good, too iconic to not be around. The theme song too. That shit slaps. I'm not going to lie, coming out to it and hearing the helicopters and sirens and guns, that shit gets you hyped," she said.

At MLW Battle Riot III in July 2021, Konnan introduced LAX 5150, which included himself, Slice Boogie, Danny Rivera and Julius Smokes. Homicide would also return to the group later on at MLW Fightland.

After being absent from the ring for nearly an entire year, it was recently reported that Santana is nearing a return to action. Click here to learn more.
