The Miami Herald showcases Midwest star Santana G

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 22, 2010

Santana already with CCW gold, TNA role

Being second or third generation can help get the foot in the door, but how far it goes is up to the individual.

Ted DiBiase, Huskey Harris, Michael McGillicutty, Natalya Neidhart, Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes, DH Smith, Tamina, the Usos are some of today’s bright young stars who have the wrestling pedigree and drive to reach another level.

Newcomer Santana, also multi-generation, strives to reach it, too.

• Growing up in Belleview, Florida, near Ocala and north of Orlando, Santana Garrettis second generation.

Her family tree does not have the universal branchings like those mentioned above, but it does generate admiration and respect from those working in the business.
Her ties to the sport cross through her father, TNT Keny G, a noted indie wrestler, trainer and promoter.

TNT Keny G, who currently runs High Voltage Wrestling, based in St. Louis, has Florida connections and trained his daughter, Santana, a former high school cheerleader and flag football player who also danced.

She said: “Because of my dad, I got into wrestling when I was really young, watching it with him.”

Keny G had a wrestling school in Ocala.

“I used to watch, get in the ring, take some bumps,” she said. “Eventually, he started wrestling. He got in it late but started running his own promotion, High Voltage Wrestling in Central Florida, and he [later] moved to St. Louis and has been running it out there.”

Santana began training there.
