ⓘ The Latin American Xchange
The Latin American Xchange is a professional wrestling stable that has wrestled in various incarnations for Total Nonstop Action / Impact Wrestling. The group achieved initial success as a stable consisting of Konnan, Hernandez and Homicide. Puerto Rican wrestler Apolo was a brief original member, who was later replaced by Machete. Later, upon the departure of Konnan from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, Homicide and Hernandez wrestled exclusively as a tag team. The original gimmick of LAX centered on its members being Hispanic, denouncing the perceived repression of ethnic minorities by the NWA Championship Committee and TNA Management, with LAXs response as a group of militant street thugs. After becoming fan favorites, the group continued to stand as proud street Latin Americans, but dropped its militant focus.
In 2017, lax returned to impact wrestling, with the founding members Konnan and homicide joined in rhinestones, Santana, and Ortiz. They were briefly joined by low KI, and the king, who then took the lead when Konnan was absent. King later split lax with Hernandez and homicide to form ogz.
