In case you haven’t been paying attention (and you probably haven’t because “wrestling is fake,” bro!), Dan Lambert and a host of MMA fighters from American Top Team have been killing it in one of All Elite Wrestling’s current top storylines, which continued Wednesday on “AEW Dynamite.”

As a result, former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos is now set to make his debut in a match (!) – although he got plenty physical already on Wednesday night.

Here’s what went down:

Sammy Guevara won his TNT title match against Bobby Fish, and almost immediately Lambert and the ATT crew of Dos Santos, Paige VanZant, Austin Vanderford, and Scorpio Sky made their way to the ring to gang up on Guevara:

No time for @sammyguevara to celebrate…@ScorpioSky, #DanLambert & @AmericanTopTeam makes their presence felt against the TNT Champion – Tune in to @tntdrama NOW for the #AEWDynamite 2 Year Anniversary Show LIVE!

Eventually, Chris Jericho and Jake Hager came to Guevara’s rescue:

We know that tune! @IAmJericho and @RealJakeHager are here to help @sammyguevara and chase off @ScorpioSky, #DanLambert & @AmericanTopTeam! Tune in to @tntdrama NOW for the #AEWDynamite 2 Year Anniversary Show LIVE!

Afterward, Lambert got on the mic and delivered (another) killer promo, setting the stage for a six-man tag team match next week in Miami with Jorge Masvidal in the corner of the ATT team:

#DanLambert throws down the gauntlet to #TheInnerCircle for next week in Miami – @IAmJericho/@RealJakeHager/@sammyguevara vs @ScorpioSky/@OfficialEGO/@junior_cigano w/ Jorge Masvidal (@GamebredFighter) in their corner!
