A video of Jorge Masvidal using his famous flying knee on wrestling legend Chris Jericho at All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Rampage has gone viral.
He tweeted: “Jorge Masvidal and Junior dos Santos are getting involved in the action at AEW right now at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens. The show will air Friday night.”
“Masvidal apparently hit Chris Jericho with the running knee that finished Ben Askren. This is an actual thing that happened tonight in Queens. I don’t want to wait until Friday to see this.”
This isn’t the first time Masvidal has been involved in a wrestling show and there have been hints the UFC star could move to the sport in future.
President of AEW Tony Khan said: “Jorge comes ‘cause he loves wrestling. He likes having a good time. I think he likes me, I like Jorge a lot and it’s fun having him here. So, it’s really an honour to have Jorge Masvidal. I mean, Jorge is such a cool guy.
“I can’t tell you what a nice person he is, and he’s always really been good to me like not when we’re at shows but just around Florida and stuff. And it was a big deal for him to come here, and who knows?”
