Professional wrestling careerEdit

Independent circuit (2008–present)Edit

As the "Funky Monkey" Angel Ortiz, Ortiz started his professional wrestling career appearing for New York based independent promotions such as 2KW Pro and Fight the World Wrestling.

EYFBO (2012–present)Edit

In 2012 he would begin appearing for Fighting Spirit Wrestling where he would begin teaming with Mike Draztik, forming the tag team EYFBO. On August 23, 2014 EYFBO would win their first tag team championship for Warriors of Wrestling at their Under the Lights 3 event.

At House of Glory's HOG At Last event, EYFBO defeated Danny Demanto and Joey Janela for the HOG Tag Team Championship. They would go on to win the HOG Tag Team titles two more times, with their second reign happening at HOG IV, defeating the Hardy Boyz, Dudly Boyz and Private Party in a Four Way match. Their third reign would come at HOG Seven by defeating The Private Party, The House of Gangone and Brian Burgundy & TJ Marconi for the vacant titles.

Combat Zone Wrestling (2016–2017)Edit

On February 13, 2016 Ortiz and Draztik would make their debuts for New Jersey's Combat Zone Wrestling, facing the CZW Tag Team Champions #TV Ready at CZW's Seventeen event, in a losing effort. At CZW's Tangled Web PPV, EYFBO would bring in their Team Pazuzu stable mate Chris Dickinson against the team of Scarlet and Graves, in a winning effort. On December 10, EYFBO would go on to win the CZW Tag Team Championship at Cage of Death 18, defeating Da Hit Squad. However, they would quickly lose the titles immediately afterwards in a match against Scarlet and Graves.

IMPACT Wrestling (2017–present)Edit

On March 16, 2017 EYFBO made their debut in IMPACT Wrestling, with Angel Ortiz now simply going by Ortiz and Draztik taking the ring name Santana, as the newest incarnation of the Latin American X-change (LAX), alongside Konnan, Homicide and Diamante. They would quickly insert themselves into the tag team title picture, defeating the teams of Decay, Reno Scum and Garza Jr. & Laredo Kid on the March 30 episode of IMPACT! for the vacant TNA World Tag Team Championship. On June 1, LAX defeated the V.O.W. in the tournament finals for the vacant GFW Tag Team Championship, unifying the two titles officially at Slammiversary XV when they defended them in a four-way international tag team match against Drago and El Hijo del Fantasma (representing AAA), Garza Jr. & Laredo Kid (representing The Crash) and Naomichi Marufuji and Taiji Ishimori (representing Pro-Wrestling NOAH).

Feud with oVe (2017–2018)Edit

LAX would drop the titles to oVe at the special Victory Road edition of IMPACT! on September 28. LAX would attempt to regain the titles in a Street Fight at Bound for Glory 2017, but would lose due to the interference of a debuting Sami Callihan. On the January 4, 2018 episode of IMPACT!, LAX would regain the titles from oVe. The feud would culminate in the third ever Barb Wire Massacre match where the team of Homicide, Santana and Ortiz would take on the team of Dave and Jake Crist and Sami Callihan on the January 18 episode of IMPACT!, with LAX emerging victorious.

Feud with the OGz (2018–present)Edit

On April 22, at IMPACT Wrestling's Redemption pay-per-view LAX would lose the tag team titles to the team of Eli Drake and Scott Steiner. With Konnan having been taken out at Redemption, Ortiz and Santana would go on to a weeks long losing streak until the arrival of King into the ranks of LAX. With King in their corner LAX were able to defeat the team of Z&E for the IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Championship. With the return of Diamante and Konann to LAX, King's motives were under suspicions, ultimately leading to his betrayal of LAX and an ultimatum for Ortiz and Santana to join him. When they refused to turn his back on Konann, LAX were jumped from behind by Homicide and a returning Hernandez.
