Melissa Santos was a very important member of Lucha Underground and she was quite beloved. Besides being a performer, she also worked as an announcer and worked in storylines. Impact Wrestling recently signed a multi-faceted performer to rebuild Lucha Underground.
Santos spoke to Wrestling Inc. about how important this is. "There has definitely been growth when it comes to this big guy [motions to Brian Cage]," Santos said, in the midst of the excitement of Starrcast II in Las Vegas.
"He was X Division champion. Now he is the Impact champion. I think he is representing them well”. Although she is no longer active as a performer, she stated that she hasn’t actually hung up her boots. She just plans on mixing things up for now.
I'd like to. I just had ACL surgery, so I can't really do anything for a bit of time. Probably, seven more months. This happened training and took a bad step, but that's just the way life is. You roll with the punches, literally and figuratively."
She is currently doing backstage interviews and stated that Tessa Blanchard and Madison Rayne are her favorite wrestlers. She stated that Tessa as a great flow about her and her promos are really well done. About Madison, she stated that her expressions are incredibly organic and looks very natural while delivering promos.
