2point0 were given new names on tonight’s AEW Dynamite.
During tonight’s Jericho Appreciation Society segment, Jericho said that Jeff Parker and Matt Lee, 2point0, would no longer be using those names, saying they were “bad names from bad creative”. Jericho then referred to them as “Daddy Magic” Matt Minard (Matt Lee) and “Cool Hand Ang” Angelo Parker (Jeff Parker). Jericho explained during the segment that he became aware of the former 2point0 thanks to a call from his friend, Kevin, possibly referring to Kevin Owens.
Tonight’s segment had Jericho saying he was not a professional wrestler, but a sports entertainer, which is the term WWE uses to refer to their wrestlers. He brought up how 2point0 appreciates him, and how Daniel Garcia appreciated him, referring to a car accident from January 2019 that Garcia was involved in where Jericho donated money towards his recovery. Jericho also brought up Jake Hager, calling him his ride or die and said he was “the hand of the king”. He ended the segment saying that this date commenced the era of the sports entertainer in AEW.
Jericho’s group formed last week after Jericho turned on Santana and Ortiz of the Inner Circle, as well as Eddie Kingston. After being attacked with Jericho’s baseball bat, the new group powerbombed Kingston through a table.
