Santana Blasts Recent Backstage AEW Drama

All In: London was undoubtedly AEW’s biggest event in company history, attracting over 90,000 fans to Wembley Stadium and setting a new record for the highest-paid attendance at a professional wrestling event in history. Unfortunately, the show’s success was overshadowed by news of a backstage confrontation between CM Punk and Jack Perry which has left both men suspended and AEW talents like Santana frustrated.

Taking to his X account, Santana criticized those who took an interest in Punk and Jerry’s confrontation and aired his frustrations over All In: London’s success being overshadowed by the news: “Who gives a damn about who fought with who,” Santana exclaimed. “Stop allowing that to drown out the fact that pro wrestling had one of the most amazing days EVER! Grow tf up.”

Santana recently made his AEW return after a 14-month absence from the promotion due to an ACL injury. The former IMPACT Tag Team Champion suffered the injury to his knee during the Blood & Guts match at the namesake event back in June 2022. He made a surprise return at Dynamite: Fyter Fest last week alongside his long-time tag team partner Ortiz. The duo sided with The Blackpool Combat Club, being revealed as their mystery partners in the Stadium Stampede match at All In: London.

Santana made his in-ring return at Wembley Stadium and despite a violent and brutal effort, he and his team failed to come away with the victory. After Eddie Kingston speared Jon Moxley through a barbed wire board, Orange Cassidy hit Claudio Castagnoli with an Orange Punch to secure the win for himself, the other two members of Best Friends, Kingston and Penta El Zero Miedo.

Elsewhere on AEW All In: London: Saraya captured the AEW Women’s World Championship and celebrated with her family; The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn dethroned The House Of Black for the AEW World Trios Championship; HOOK reclaimed the FTW Championship from Jack Perry; and MJF & Adam Cole defeated Aussie Open to win the Ring Of Honor World Tag Team Championship.
