Lee and Parker began teaming together all the way back in 2002, becoming regulars on the independent scene. The pair signed with WWE in 2019, performing on NXT under the name Ever-Rise.
The team were released by WWE in June 2021.
2Point0 made their AEW’s debut’s alongside Danny Garcia at Dynamite Homecoming after calling out Eddie Kingston, Jon Moxley and Darby Allin. While the trio, were eventually defeated, they earned plaudits for going up against three of the toughest stars AEW has to offer.
After a run of victories on AEW Dark the two men returned to Dynamite to meet Sting and Darby Allin in a Texas Tornado Tag Team Match. The bout, which was Sting’s first on TNT in more than 20 years, was as brutal and chaotic as you would expect.
2Point0 thought they had the match won after Powerbombing Sting through a table, only for The Icon to roll back the years and rise from the canvas. The WCW legend hit a double Scorpion Deathdrop, before following up with a double Scorpion Deathlock for the win.
