Appearing on Talk Is Jericho, O'Reilly & Fish discussed the origins of the name.

"We thought of a ton, ones that they cleared through legal that I guess couldn't actually end up being (used)," said O'Reilly.

Fish added, "We would narrow down this huge list and the following day we would get back more narrowed lists from legal and any of the names we were actually close on, they were either gone or changed or paired with something on the list that made it not work."

O'Reilly mentioned that the group wasn't initially thrilled with the Undisputed ERA name. Fish gave his reasons why he wasn't sold on the name.

"So lukewarm," Fish said about the name. "I was worried about baseball references. ERA, Earned Run Average. That's all I could see. I was the worst baseball player ever. In the history of little league, I will go down as maybe the worst."

Fish also noted that they were initially lukewarm on the Undisputed ERA theme.

Fish & O'Reilly left WWE at the end of 2021 with Fish being released and O'Reilly having his contract expire. They have since reunited with Cole in AEW.
