It was revealed on Tuesday’s airing of “Countdown to All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite” that Chris Jericho will team with Santana and Ortiz against Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks on the debut episode on TNT.
The announcement came following weeks of promotion that Jericho would have two mystery partners. Santana and Ortiz, formerly LAX in Impact Wrestling, made their promotional debut at the “All Out” event at the Sears Centre on August 31st.

After their first appearance, AEW president Tony Khan stated the tandem would not be able to use their previous moniker of LAX.
