Joey Janela hasn’t taken kindly to one of Jungle Boy’s actions on the latest edition of Dynamite.
At Forbidden Door, Jack Perry challenged SANADA for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship as he continued his quest to finally win singles gold in AEW. Unfortunately for the star, he was soundly beaten by NJPW’s top champion in just over 10 minutes.
The aftermath of the bout saw Perry helped up by Hook, but as they went up the ramp, he turned on his JungleHook partner, taking him down with a vicious lariat to a chorus of boos from the Toronto crowd.
JUNGLE HOOK IS NO MORE!

When Perry made his entrance on the following Dynamite, he continued his attitude change, demanding the production team cut off his popular “Tarzan Boy” theme and telling fans they would never hear the music again.
He then addressed Hook, accusing him of being an “entitled” second-generation wrestler before promising to take his FTW Championship. Hook came out to confront the star, but he retreated from the ring.

During the segment, Perry was wearing a brown jacket that fans believed was reminiscent of his former ally Christian Cage’s style. However, Joey Janela corrected the record, revealing it was actually Perry’s late father’s.
He then went on to tell Perry “f**k you” for abandoning his theme song since it was Janela who had suggested he use it in the first place.
“Jacks been wearing that jacket for years it’s his dads jacket from the 90s, also f**k you @boy_myth_legend for abandoning my best contribution to your career and the business Baltimora-Tarzan boy!”

The rest of Dynamite was no less eventful, with Sting making a huge leap off a ladder as he and Darby Allin fought Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara, while the Blackpool Combat Club once again got the best of The Elite before Jon Moxley laid down a challenge for them to escalate the rivalry in a Blood and Guts match on July 19th.
