AEW President Tony Khan has confirmed the signings of Matt Lee and Jeff Parker a.k.a. 2point0 to the promotion.

One day after their Texas Tornado match on Dynamite with Sting and Darby Allin, Tony Khan issued a statement on Twitter confirming that the former NXT tandem was signed.

On Wednesday’s edition of Talk is Jericho, host Chris Jericho noted that the duo had signed with AEW.

The two are natives of Quebec and made their professional debuts in 2003 wrestling under a variety of names.

On the independents, they competed for promotions including IWS (International Wrestling Syndicate) and working as both 2.0. and ‘The Badd Boyz’ in CHIKARA during the late 2000s.

In February 2019, they were announced as members of the WWE Performance Center class. They appeared on NXT programming under their new names of Chase Parker and Matt Martel and later, they became ‘Ever-Rise’.

The two were parts of the releases in late June of this year and first appeared on the August 4th ‘Homecoming’ edition of AEW Dynamite.
