Video: Junior dos Santos gets slammed through table in pro wrestling debut for AEW

@AEW, TwitterJunior dos Santos experienced a rite of passage in his first-ever professional wrestling match. The former UFC heavyweight champion made his pro wrestling debut at AEW Rampage on Friday at James L. Knight Center in Miami, and he didn’t shy away from the action, getting involved with several of AEW’s stars in the six-man tag team match main event. Dos Santos’ appearance was capped off by an exchange with current Bellator heavyweight Jake Hager, who picked dos Santos up and slammed him through a table outside of the ring. Watch that highlight above. Overall, it was an entertaining and eventful debut for “Cigano” and his American Top Team teammates. “BMF” champion Jorge Masvidal and Paige VanZant were also prominently featured, with VanZant running interference at the end of the match so that Masvidal could sneak into the ring and land a running knee on Chris Jericho, leaving him open for the pinfall. Alongside AEW tag team Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page, dos Santos can now say he’s had his hand raised in a pro wrestling match.
