Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “Pentagon Jr. is now Penta Cero M. That’s the name he owns merchandising rights to.”
It was noted that AEW was allowed to use the Pentagon Jr. name because they had a working relationship with AAA, which owns the name. However, All Elite Wrestling pushed for the name change because of a variety of potential projects that they have planned by marketing him.
Meltzer stated that once AEW started merchandising the tag team the promotion didn’t want to use an AAA-owned name and at some point they were going to switch it to a name Pentagon Jr owns and it was just a question of when.
It was added that the name also coincides with the Masked Republic deal getting Penta Cero Miedo merchandise into Hot Topic.
