Pro Wrestler Jenni Santana opens up about being the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana
Jenni Santana says she only recently confirmed that she is the daughter of former WWF Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion Tito Santana.
She recently was interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter, where she revealed that it was only a few years ago that she learned about Tito being his biological father,
“I only found out a few years ago that he is my biological father,”. “I was already into martial arts heavily. Then I did the interview with Hannibal, and he asked if I was interested in trying professional wrestling. I was like, “Yeah! Why not?” (H/T Wrestling Inc.)
She also revealed that connecting to his father is not easy as she connected with Santana through his sons. Jenni told that it was a shock.
“I can imagine that it was a shock.” Jenni Santana explained. “Here it is, however, many years later, and this grown person with children of her own doesn’t quite show up on his doorstep but is kind of, “Hi, here I am!” (laughs) I wanted to approach it gently. I know he has a family of his own. And, it wasn’t like I had known for a long time – I was finding out right around the same time that he was. I had suspicions when I was younger… There wasn’t really DNA, so there was nothing that I knew for sure. Time went on, and I hadn’t really thought about it until a few years ago.”
Jenni Santana wants to connect with her father even more in future.
During the interview, she mentioned that it is not easy to connect with her father, Tito. Still, she is hoping to connect with him in the future, and she doesn’t want to do anything forcefully.
“Tito has been married for 40 years or something like that,” Jenni Santana explained. “It is not like it is a delicate new relationship. Something like this could cause more rifts when you’re just starting out, and you’re younger in life and in your relationship. But, he’s older in life now, and when you’re older in life, you have more life experiences. You have more solid foundations and relationships. So, it really shouldn’t rock anything too hard.”So, I decided to go for it! Also, my chiropractor and his wife had a similar situation where she had found out who her biological father was. When she contacted him, this guy (her biological father) literally drove across the country as soon as he hung up the phone to see her. So, when you hear that happen, I guess you have that hope.
Tito is a WWE Hall of Famer and a former Tag Team along with an Intercontinental Champion.
