Marko Stunt Recalls Joey Janela Telling Tony Khan That Jurassic Express Was A 'F*cking Stupid' Name

Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, and Marko Stunt combine to form Jurassic Express in AEW. 

The original team in AEW was Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus, who went as A Boy And His Dinosaur, but the addition of Stunt meant the need for a new name as a trio.

When asked on AEW Unrestricted who came up with the name Jurassic Express, Luchasaurus revealed that it came from Tony Khan. 

"Tony's idea. We came up with A Boy And His Dinosaur on our own and we were trying to figure out how to bring Marko into it and Tony is like 'Jurassic Express, that's it, I love it.' I didn't like it at all. I thought it was too goofy. Then it quickly grew on us and it was cool," he said.

Marko Stunt added to the story, saying Joey Janela wasn't much of a fan of the name. 

"I got offered my contract at [Fight For The Fallen]. Joey [Janela] found out we were going to be called Jurassic Express and he said, 'What? That's fucking stupid.' Tony [Khan] is standing right there and goes, 'I came up with that.' Joey goes, 'Well, it's fucking stupid.' Tony goes, 'I appreciate your honesty,'" recalled Marko.

Despite Janela's initial impression, The Jurassic Express name has stuck for the trio.

Jurassic Express will be in action on Wednesday's Dynamite when they battle Dark Order (Colt Cabana, 5, 10) in a six-man tag team bout.
