The first episode of AEW Dynamite will feature some high-level competition with some of the biggest names in the sport. 

We knew Chris Jericho would be a part of the show, but the promotion announced Tuesday that he will be joined by Santana and Ortiz in the main event against The Elite, featuring Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson.

Jericho teased the announcement earlier in the day, which was eventually made during the Countdown to Dynamite:

Chris Jericho @IAmJericho

Santana and Ortiz have plenty of experience competing with each other, serving as tag-team partners with Impact Wrestling before eventually moving to AEW.

Teaming up with Jericho could help raise their profile as he's one of the biggest stars in the new wrestling organization.

Meanwhile, Jericho and Omega have already battled in an AEW pay-per-view and will be at it again with the help of The Young Bucks.

With other big matches like Cody Rhodes against Sammy Guevara and the women's championship match between Nyla Rose and Riho, there will be a lot to watch on Wednesday in Washington, D.C.


Tune into TNT on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET to catch all the action of All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite.
