AEW Star Jungle Boy Hits Back At Criticism of Recent Conduct

Jungle Boy

‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry has been at the centre of controversy over his conduct at For the Love of Wrestling convention in Manchester, England.

At the event, Perry was part of a Q&A alongside fellow AEW stars Anna Jay and Ruby Soho. Some fans have criticised the star’s attitude, claiming he was standoffish and rude. Things then escalated after Jim Cornette spoke about the appearance during his podcast.

During the session, Perry admitted he wouldn’t take advice from wrestling veteran Billy Gunn, and criticised wrestlers in dark matches who didn’t seem to have proper training and were “horrible”.

“I think getting trained properly and well is like an important part of it. You’d be surprised how many guys show up to do dark matches and are horrible and don’t know anything at all. And they’re there because they went to MJF’s wrestling school. So I think going and learning properly and having like a really good foundation helps you wherever you go. So I’d say that.”

In one of the most widely circulated clips, there was also a question on whether he would want to enter a program against CM Punk. Perry thought about it for a while before saying simply “We’d have to see, I don’t know.”

Not everyone was critical of the star and many fans came out in support, some with their own more positive experiences.

Jungle Boy responds to criticism

Perry has now addressed the criticism he has been receiving. Taking to social media, the star said he “had a blast” at the event but that “If you don’t like something, that’s ok!”

“-Had a blast in Manchester and I always love meeting the fans.
-If you don’t like something that’s ok!
-Take a walk. Get laid. Hit a Canadian destroyer.
-Thanks for the support.”

Jack Perry is set to be part of the main event of Double or Nothing as the Four Pillars go to war over MJF‘s AEW World Championship.
