AEW have been forced into making some minor changes to how they present wrestlers for legal reasons, and here’s the latest change.

The AEW roster is filled with wrestlers who were among the biggest stars are previous promotions. Pentagon Jr. is certainly on that list. He was a major star at AAA and has held titles with promotions like PWG, MLW, and Lucha Underground. And who could forget his incredible run in Impact Wrestling when he won the world title and then the tag titles with Rey Fenix?

Pentagon has been with AEW since 2019 after the Young Bucks offered the Lucha Bros. a contract during an independent show. He and Fenix have continued wrestling as the Lucha Bros. in All Elite, and they are now a part of Eddie Kingston’s new faction. Maybe one day, Pentagon will hold world title gold in AEW, too.

But he would do so under a new name. According to a report from the Wrestling Observer News’ Dave Meltzer, via’s Nate Craver, AEW does not own the rights to the name “Pentagon Jr.” and cannot market that name on their merchandise.

AEW’s Pentagon Jr. is now Penta El Zero M

So they have officially tweaked his name to “Penta El Zero M”, and that seems to be the way they are officially referring to him on their website and in the broadcast booth.

Name changes take time to get use to, but this one should be easy for wrestling fans and for AEW. Fans will still likely refer to him as “Pentagon Jr.” in friendly discussions, but “Penta El Zero M” is the official name.

For All Elite fans, the biggest concern won’t be his name but what the future holds for the top-notch pro wrestler. Penta El Zero M is as good as it gets in between the ropes with charisma, power moves, and jaw-dropping agility. There’s nothing he can’t do in that ring, and he’s never out of creative ideas. He showed in Impact and elsewhere that he can be a top-level singles star.
