Former WWE Stars Ever-Rise, who is now known as 2.0 (Matt Lee and Jeff Parker), has really proven the type of athletes and competitors they are and even though they were two of the multiple stars the WWE recently released, they have really made a name for themselves by competing all over the world in top level and high calibre matches.
Their talents didn’t go unnoticed as on a recent edition of the Talk Is Jericho podcast, top AEW Star Chris Jericho revealed that 2.0 (Matt Lee and Jeff Parker) have signed contracts with AEW. As of this writing, neither has 2.0 nor AEW confirm this signing and the reason behind this is reportedly due to the fact that AEW Executive Vice President “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes said that when he was explaining the company’s contract tier system, AEW chooses who gets an “All Elite” tweet.
Jericho also revealed on his podcast that 2.0 didn’t tell him during their AEW debut a few weeks back on the Homecoming episode of Dynamite that they have signed contracts with the company as Jeff Parker and Matt Lee of 2.0 were likely trying to keep their AEW debuts a secret. During their recent AEW in-ring debut, 2.0 teamed up with Daniel Garcia to take on Darby Allin, Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley in a Trios Match.
