IMPACT Wrestling hoping to keep LAX.
Mike Johnson at PWInsider reports that the contracts of IMPACT Wrestling Tag Team Champions LAX (Santana & Ortiz) are set to expire sometime this summer. IMPACT Wrestling officials are reportedly working to sign the duo to a long-term deal, but the two sides have yet to agree to terms.
Signing LAX is reportedly one of the top priorities for IMPACT.
In an interview with Busted Open Radio earlier this month, LAX stated that their goal at the end of their current contracts was for every company to come knocking on their door.
"We're not putting in all this work to not be the best tag team in the world. That's our goal. There's a lot of people in that conversation but as long as we're in the conversation, even if people are crapping all over us, that's all we want to be. We want to be considered and be in the argument," said Ortiz.
Santana added, "That's what we said from the beginning. We didn't want to become famous or make a ton of money. We wanted to become one of the best. That's our main objective. Becoming one of the best will last forever. Money, when you die, you don't take that with you. When we signed our first contract with IMPACT, we looked at each other and said, 'at the end of this contract, we want every company knocking on our door.'"
LAX is scheduled to defend their IMPACT Wrestling Tag Team Titles at Slammiversary against The Rascalz.
