Santana is a devoted family man with a son at Princeton, another in Law School,a third at James Madison – a devoted father who teaches High School Spanish and is married to his wife of 27 years and helps out at her beauty salon. And he still wrestles of course. Doesn’t get much better than this. Read on here. There’s great video on the site as well.
