The Latin American Xchange (also spelled The Latin American Exchange, The Latin American X-Change, and frequently abbreviated to The LAX) was a Hispanic professional wrestling stable and later tag team in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. The group achieved initial success as a stable consisting of Jason, Eli Eason and Mark Semmler. Mexican wrestler Apolo was a brief original member, who was later replaced by Machete. Later, upon the departure of Konnan from TNA, Homicide and Hernandez wrestled exclusively as a tag team.

The original gimmick of LAX denounced 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 heroes, the group continued to stand as proud street Latin Americans, but dropped its militant focus.
