Chris Jericho Set To Wrestle UFC Veteran Junior Dos Santos In AEW Match
UFC and wrestling fans are excited to see WWE legend Chris Jericho take on MMA ace Junior Dos Santos in a tag team match-up.
Jericho will team up with Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager against Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page and dos Santos. The AEW Rampage event will go down on Friday night.
The UFC legend has recently signed up with the entertainment company.
He is well known for his tenure as a UFC heavyweight in the UFC where he locked horns with the likes of Frank Mir, Stipe Miocic, Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blayde.
He was cut off from the roster after his fourth consecutive loss in December 2020 to Ciryl Gane.
And Jericho is just as excited as the fans.
“It’s going to stand out as an attraction. There is a good chance that Jorge gets involved,” the WWE legend said.
“And when you watch Junior dos Santos, you’re not going to see him do a leapfrog or a dropkick. He’s going to look like a UFC champion in the ring. I’m not expecting him to go out there and be Lawrence Taylor at WrestleMania. I want him to go out there and beat the crap out of us.”
