Melissa Santos was interviewed by Chris Van Vliet this week. She talked about why she started her OnlyFans account, what her husband Brian Cage thinks of it, her return to ring announcing for IMPACT Wrestling, her comments about Brian Cage and AEW, the preparation behind her first bodybuilding competition, moving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and more.
Santos talked about how she met Brian Cage:
“I remember when I first met him. It was really shocking. Him and John Morrison were probably the most shocking. They were the most like, ‘Wow, these guys are wrestlers. This is what a wrestler should look like.’ But yea, Brian and John were surely the ones, and Brian just kept my attention. So yeah, there is now a marriage and a baby.”
On speaking out about AEW not using Brian Cage enough:
“I’m his wife. I’m not going to be like, ‘Oh, I wish things were different.’ No, f*cking use him more. I love my husband. He is my favorite wrestler. That’s how we started talking. I called him my favorite at Lucha Underground. There are not many people that look like him. I want to see him more like I used to. At Lucha Underground, he was used all the time. At Impact, he was the champion. I’m not saying, ‘Hey, let’s make him the champion.’ I just want to see my husband more. He comes out on the first episode of AEW and he is f*cking ripping ladders apart. He is doing like the body guy stuff and you don’t really see that anymore. You see more like the cruiserweights. For me, yes, I am biased because he is my husband. I want to see more of that. I did get heat because I am spicy. I’m straightforward.”
Melissa talking about the heat Brian Cage got:
“I found an article because there were a lot of articles written about him. I got really spicy when I shouldn’t have, but then he got all the heat for that. He didn’t say anything. I do feel bad for that because he loves wrestling, loves AEW, loves Tony Khan, and loves being there. A lot of it came from the love of being involved. But because I’m loud, I got him in trouble.”
