That’s what they’ll be called. A wrestler’s name is one of the most important parts of their entire presentation. If a wrestler has the wrong name, it could leave them fairly low on the ladder, as no one will be taking them seriously. Sometimes you will see a wrestler change their name for one reason or another, and that was the case again this week with a pair of names.
This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite featured the first interview with the newly formed Jericho Appreciation Society. During the interview, Chris Jericho said that 2.0 was a bad name from “bad creative” and announced that they would not be going by their previous names of Matt Lee and Jeff Parker. Instead, they would not be known as “Daddy Magic” Matt Minard and “Cool Hand Ang” Angelo Parker.
Opinion: I’m not sure how much of a difference the changes are going to make, but at least they have done something interesting with them for a change. 2.0 have been fairly successful during their time in AEW but they haven’t exactly stood out. Maybe the new names will be a start for them, but having the association with Jericho should be enough of a boost.
What do you think of the changes? How far can the team go in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
