The first episode of Dynamite, All Elite Wrestling‘s new television show, is set to air on October 2 at 8 PM Eastern. Until very recently, fans believed it would have a somewhat mysterious main event: The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) vs. Chris Jericho and two partners, whose identities were unknown.
On October 1, TNT aired an hour-long preview special before the premiere of their new wrestling program. On this show, a segment filmed backstage at All Out revealed that the duo of Santana and Ortiz (aka PNP or Proud-n-Powerful, known until recently as LAX in Impact Wrestling and EYFBO on the indies) will team up with Jericho in that six-man tag team match. For anyone not watching the special, AEW spread the word about this announcement on Twitter.

After Santana and Ortiz made their AEW debuts through a surprise attack after the crazy ladder match between the Lucha Bros and The Young Bucks at All Out, it was widely guessed that they would be Jericho’s mystery partners. Still, announcing the identity of two mystery partners the night before they were scheduled to be revealed is an odd choice!
With all cards on the table, here’s how the card for the Dynamite premiere stands right now:
- Cody vs. Sammy Guevara in the opener
- Brandon Cutler vs. MJF
- Hangman Page vs. Pac
- AEW Women’s World Championship match: Riho vs. Nyla Rose
- An appearance by Jon Moxley
- The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks [Matt and Nick Jackson]) vs. Chris Jericho and PNP (Santana and Ortiz) in the main event
