If former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos decides that professional wrestling is his subsequent profession calling, it simply may work out.
It’s been an fascinating three months with the Dan Lambert and American Top Team storyline on AEW tv, with killer promo after killer promo and nice phase after nice phase. All of it led to the primary member of ATT partaking in an precise match Friday on “AEW Rampage,” with Dos Santos stepping up for a six-man tag match with companions Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky in opposition to Chris Jericho, Jake Hager and Sammy Guevara.
And you realize what? Dos Santos held his personal properly on the large stage!
The excessive spot for JDS was taking a bump from Hager, who slammed him by way of the announcers desk exterior of the ring. For it to look nearly as good because it did, JDS needed to promote it correctly – and he did.

All in all, this was some fairly stable in-ring work from JDS for it being his first time in a match. Dos Santos doesn’t have any form of long-term contract in place with AEW, however he informed MMA Junkie’s Danny Segura this week that he’s not ruling out professional wrestling as the subsequent chapter of his profession.
