Santana of All Elite Wrestling has shared a heartwarming moment he shared with his daughter on receiving his recently released action figure.
Sharing a picture of himself and his daughter on Twitter, Santana commented:
What a moment. As a kid, wrestling figures were my life. I never thought that one day I’d not just have my own, but have my kid be able to say that her Papi was immortalized in plastic… Truly a special moment. #ALWAYSDream#ProudNPowerful#BornNASTY
Santana was part of the Jazwares produced AEW Unrivaled Series 4 of action figures from the company. Other stars included in the series are Santana’s tag team partner Ortiz, Sammy Guevara, Matt Hardy, Cody Rhodes, and Kenny Omega.
Debuting in AEW at All Out 2019 Santana and Ortiz would join Chris Jericho’s Inner Circle on the premiere episode of AEW Dynamite. As part of the group, the pair have been part of some huge moments in AEW history. They were part of the Stadium Stampede match that headlined the 2020 Double Or Nothing event. The pair would also be a part of the Dave Meltzer 5-star rated parking lot brawl in September 2020. They would lose this fight to the Best Friends, Chuck Taylor and Trent.
