Latin American Xchange (LAX) is a professional wrestling stable signed to IMPACT Wrestling. The group achieved initial success as a stable consisting of KonnanHomicide, and Hernandez. Puerto Rican wrestler Apolo was a brief original member, who was later replaced by Machete. Later, upon the departure of Konnan from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), Homicide and Hernandez wrestled exclusively as a tag team.

The original gimmick of LAX centered on its members being Hispanic, denouncing the perceived repression of ethnic minorities by the NWA Championship Committee and TNA Management, with LAX's response as a group of militant street thugs. After becoming fan favorites, the group continued to stand as proud street Latin Americans, but dropped its militant focus.

In 2017, LAX returned to IMPACT Wrestling as villains. Founding members Konnan and Homicide were joined by DiamanteOrtiz, and Santana. They were briefly joined by Low-Ki, and King later assumed leadership when Konnan was absent. King would later leave LAX alongside Homicide and Hernandez to form the OGz.
