Chris Jericho teaming with Santana & Ortiz on AEW Dynamite premiere


Chris Jericho has his partners for tomorrow's AEW Dynamite premiere.

As had come to be expected, Jericho will team with Santana & Ortiz to face Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks in their six-man tag match tomorrow night (October 2). The six-man tag was first announced in July, with it being teased that Jericho would have two mystery partners.

Santana & Ortiz held the Impact Tag Team titles four times as LAX. They bid farewell to Impact in August and made their AEW debuts at All Out, attacking The Young Bucks and The Lucha Bros after they had faced each other in a ladder match.

The announcement of Santana & Ortiz being Jericho's partners was made on the Countdown to Dynamite special that aired on TNT tonight. There was a scene where Santana & Ortiz congratulated and thanked Jericho backstage after he became the inaugural AEW World Champion at All Out.

 The Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. is hosting tomorrow's AEW Dynamite premiere. It will air from 8-10 p.m. Eastern time and go head-to-head with NXT.

Here's what's been announced for the Dynamite premiere:

  • Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz vs. Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks
  • Nyla Rose vs. Riho to determine the inaugural AEW Women's Champion
  • Hangman Page vs. PAC
  • MJF vs. Brandon Cutler
  • An appearance by Jon Moxley
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Sammy Guevara
