Ortiz-Magro made an appearance at TNA Wrestling's Impact Wrestling on October 26, 2011, in Macon, Georgia. The first episode, which aired November 3 of that year, saw Ortiz and Eric Young get beaten down by Robbie E and Rob Terry, which built to a tag team match the following week, where Ronnie pinned Robbie for the win.[6][7]
