Thanks to the Team Vision Dojo for sending in this interesting tidbit:

Did you know who was originally casted for #FightingwithMyFamily with @zelina_vegawwe @therock & more……. #Repost @santanagarrett (@get_repost) ・・・ Head over to the IG of @zelina_vegawwe & wish her a HUGE congratulations on her role in #FightingWithMyFamily 👊🍾 . I am so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to work with her at the #WWE performance center in helping her prepare for the role that she absolutely rocked..she is seriously SO talented..it was a bit scary how she totally transformed into #AJLee! 😳 I am proud to call her a friend, Sky is the limit you pretty little thang! 👏💕🙏😊
Both Santana and Zelina, Thea Trinidad, had been training hard at the Team Vision Dojo and were both casted for the match scene against one another. Unfortunately, there was too much of a height contrast, and Santana was replaced with the shorter Tessa Blanchard. While it was a great experience for Santana, we wish she was in the final cut, but we know there’s still plenty to come for this Shining Star.
Santana will be back at the Team Vision Dojo tomorrow, Tuesday, January 22 which features an Ivelisse Velez seminar at 4pm, a free trial beginner’s class at 7pm, and a free I Believe in Wrestling event at 8pm with a 10-bell salute for Rex Bacchus all apart of our special Open House this Tuesday.
