One AEW star has taken issue with Jungle Boy after a light-hearted exchange on social media seemed to take a serious turn.
At Full Gear Jungle Boy Jack Perry finally seemed to put his issues with Luchasaurus to bed after he defeated his former tag team partner in a Steel Cage match. Following the show at the media scrum, Perry revealed that his gear was inspired by what Shawn Michaels wore for the first-ever Hell In A Cell match at Badd Blood 1997.
Austin Gunn commented on that, sharing a photo of himself and his brother Colten wearing gear also inspired by The Heartbreak Kid while intimating that Jungle Boy “wants to be Gunn so bad.”
Jungle Boy responded with a barb of his own, telling Gunn “I don’t know… I think I prefer being booked on the PPVs.” The Gunns have only ever competed on one AEW pay-per-view back at Revolution in 2021 when they were part of a Casino Tag Team Royale. Although they did make their presence felt at All Out 2022 when – as part of The Firm – they disrupted the Casino Ladder Match which allowed MJF to win.
Colten Gunn took issue with Jungle Boy’s comment and went for the jugular as he suggested Perry’s success came down to who he spent time with as he wrote:
“i guess if we changed with the bucks and stayed up until 6 am with the boss we could get a spot too”
