Mike Santana has left AEW. During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Santana was asked if WWE has ever approached him about signing with them.

Here’s what the former 4-time IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Champion said:

“Oh, yeah. When our (him and Ortiz) contracts were coming up with TNA (in 2019), there was interest with AEW and WWE.

We had spoken to WWE extensively and they made it very hard for us to turn them down, but our thing was that, so Cody (Rhodes) was the one who hired us and we had already, before anything, we had spoken a while back and we had given Cody our word before anything and our word is everything.

So by that point, they asked, ‘Hey, have you signed anything?’ We’re like, ‘No, but we gave our word and we would like to stick to that’.

At the time we both had young children and we wanted to see them grow up and the schedule was much easier with AEW.

Plus the opportunity to be part of history, be a part of something that was brand new and fresh and be at the ground level, and honestly, like even now, I could honestly say I was part of that legacy and part of that history no matter what.

People could always go back to the very first show, the very first main event, my name is there so I’m happy with that.

I’ve had some discussions (with WWE). I’ve been very open with everybody. Right now is just going where I’m going to be able to grow the most. I don’t want to just be another guy on the roster; I already did that.

I want to be part of something, I want to do something special. Thankfully, I’ve been smart with money and I’m not hurting and I’m taking my time with things, and you know, I just want to have fun.”

When asked if he’d like to return to TNA, he said:

“Everything is on the table and they’re doing great. They are doing amazing.”
