With All Out on August 31 already sold out and the card coming together, AEW has started to ramp up the promotion for its still-untitled TNT debut show on October 2.
The group has already confirmed the first match (Cody vs. Sammy Guevara) and an appearance from Jon Moxley, and now a new match has been added to the show featuring the ever-exciting element of mystery.
The bout will see the Elite trio of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks team up against Chris Jericho and two mystery partners, as revealed by Y2J on Instagram:

Now THIS is how you make a national television debut….. @mattjackson13, @nickjacksonyb & @kennyomegamanx VS #Jericho & 2 MYSTERY PARTNERS. And trust me…you’re not gonna believe who I’m planning on bringing in! Get your tickets THIS FRIDAY and be a part of history! @aewontnt @allelitewrestling #YoureWelcome
The most intriguing aspect of the match is the identity of Jericho’s two mystery partners.
Jericho himself says fans are “not gonna believe” who his partners are, which is sure to get tongues wagging and the rumour mill working overdrive.
Could it be someone from Jericho’s past such as a former tag partner (Lance Storm?), current members of the AEW roster of some as yet unconfirmed new signings (*cough* CM Punk *cough*).
We likely won’t know for several weeks, perhaps not even until the day itself.
Tickets go on sale for AEW’s TNT debut on August 2 at noon ET at this link.
