As seen during recent weeks, 2point0 and Daniel Garcia have been paired up as a trio.
During the latest episode of the “TheShowRULES” podcast, Jeff Parker and Matt Lee commented on a potential name for the team, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
Parker on how the idea came about in AEW: “Garcia was in the ring and he’s warming up and wearing these black pants and a white wife beater with a chain. I’m standing with Orange Cassidy and I’m like, ‘Doesn’t Garcia look like he’s a local tough guy trying to join the gang?’ It stuck, so maybe we’re The Local Toughs.”
Lee on the true origin of the name: “Years ago, we were at a CHIKARA event in Ontario. After the show, we’re all going to eat. We’re with El Generico, who was our partner at the time. There was a group of people standing outside. Before we go in, I go to them and I’m like, ‘Are you guys the local toughs?’ Generico looks at me like, ‘What are you doing? You’re antagonizing them.’ That was on the table for the name for our trio. It would be Local Tough.”
