Days ahead of their TV debut, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) have begun teasing a partnership with DC. This team-up was launched with a Howard Porter/Hi-Fi illustration of the AEW champion Chris Jericho, followed by a Jon Moxley illustration by Ramon Villalobos.

Last Saturday on Batman Day, AEW co-founder/Executive VP Cody Rhoes tweeted that Batman was "All Elite."

AEW will debut October 2 on TNT, which is part of the WarnerMedia conglomerate - which also includes DC.

Jericho will become one of the first wrestlers to appear in comic books for four separate wrestling promotions - CMLL (who self-published), WCW (who had a licensed comic through Marvel), WWE (who currently publishes with BOOM!), and now AEW (who has a partnership with DC).

Look for more details in the coming weeks about the AEW/DC partnership.
