Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos made his pro wrestling debut Friday night at AEW Rampage live on TNT.
Dos Santos was paired up with AEW wrestlers Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky in a six-man tag-team match against Chris Jericho, Jake Hager and Sammy Guevara. “Cigano” has made a few AEW appearances before, but never to this capacity.
JDS was tagged in early into the match and battered Jericho with a collection of body shots. Dos Santos would later have an encounter with Hager, a current Bellator heavyweight fighter, which ended in JDS going through a table. It was quite the debut for the former UFC champ.

UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal also played a major role in tonight’s AEW showdown. “Gamebred” not only distracted Jericho early in the match so Page could land a flying attack, but Masvidal also unleashed another flying knee on Jericho to close out the show.
