Hernandez’s thoughts on partnering up with Anarquia, his reaction to those who compare Mexican America to The LAX, & why he believes the two tag teams are very different: “It was like when I first started with TNA, I wasn’t the first choice to tag with Homicide and and you see how that worked out with LAX. Anarchia wasn’t the first choice, but all the cards came the right way, and he’s doing a great job. We are definitely getting a lot of people calling us ‘LAX Jr.’ or ‘LAX Light.’ This is not the same thing. About the only thing that’s the same is the music, and I’m the one that selected it. I think it’s a lot different.”
Anarquia’s reaction to those who have compared him to Homicide, the importance of separating Mexican America & The LAX as two different tag teams, & why he feels that Mexican America has meshed together so efficiently to this point: “Fans are going to make their assumptions and say what they want. That’s their opinion. They could compare me to Homicide, and they could say what they want, but the fact of the matter is it that it’s two different tag teams now. The LAX with Homicide & Hernandez was what they were, and Mexican America with Hernandez & Anarquia (along with Rosita & Sarita) are what we are. It’s the same, but different. I was put on the spot, but I’m so over prepared that no matter what they asked me to do, I was there for them. Things just worked, and that’s why they picked me up so quickly.”
The feeling of becoming a TNA World Tag Team Champion for the first time for Anarquia, when Mexican America defeated Beer Money on iMPACT Wrestling last month: “Personally, that was an awesome day for me. Coming in, and from being in Ohio Valley Wrestling as long as I was, to finally making it to the national level, and within five or six months of being on that level, and winning the TNA World Tag Team Titles…that was a great feeling. It’s a stamp on my card saying that this guy can get the job done, and it was great for the team. It let everyone know that tunes in and watches (iMPACT Wrestling) that Mexican America is a team to watch. That’s the feeling I got from that day.”
Hernandez’s thoughts on the next challenge for Mexican America: the team’s first title defense this Sunday night at No Surrender vs. Devon & “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero: “We’re waiting for TNA to build up a real babyface team for us to face. D-Von & ‘The Pope’: They just put them together. I’ve wrestled D-Von many times with The LAX, so I’ve got his number, and ‘The Pope’ is just a non-factor to me.”
Much more is contained in Mexican America’s exclusive interview with The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network, including their candid thoughts on what Hernandez & Anarquia have learned from each other since teaming up, the development of their chemistry and how they’ve made that work to their advantage as a successful tag team, what Rosita & Sarita have brought to Mexican America, why Hernandez believes this reign with tag team gold is more of a team effort this time around, the current state of the TNA tag team division, unfinished business with The British Invasion (Douglas Williams & Magnus), who is the best tag team in the world (Mexican America: Hernandez & Anarquia, Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team: Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas, or Air Boom: Evan Bourne & Kofi Kingston), plus much more!
