Ortiz Explains He And Santana Had To Change Theme Song Due To AEW Videos Being Flagged On YouTube

If they weren't proud, they wouldn't be powerful.

When Santana & Ortiz first came to AEW, the group used the song "Proud N Powerful" by Bodega Bamz. However, the duo had to switch themes to "I Am Proud, I Am Powerful."

Speaking during a Captain's Corner virtual signing, Ortiz explained why they had to change their theme.

"We've been very fortunate to know rappers, shoutout to Bodega Bamz, he was our first entrance music. We had to change it. A lot of people asked why we changed our music. We were having a lot of issues because Bodega Bamz put up our theme song on Spotify and other streaming services. YouTube would get flagged every single time we would do Dark or a clip of our song would be on YouTube, it would cause issues. If they put up a three-hour Dark: Elevation [show], if our music played, they would flag the whole entire three-hour Dark: Elevation because of our music. We were having so much issues, which is why we changed our theme song," he said.

Santana & Ortiz are currently aligned with Eddie Kingston on AEW television and feuding with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Santana, Ortiz, and Kingston are set to team against Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, & Daniel Garcia on the April 13 episode of AEW Dynamite.
