Jack Perry is set to make his in-ring debut for New Japan Pro Wrestling but he shouldn’t expect a warm reception.
Jack Perry has been the unlikely catalyst for some of the biggest news stories in wrestling in recent years. Perry had an issue with CM Punk that led to him making his “real glass, cry me a river” comment to the camera during his match with HOOK at All In.
CM Punk and Jack Perry were then involved in a backstage fight following that which led to both men being suspended. CM Punk was then fired by AEW less than a week later with that not being his first backstage transgression in the company.
CM Punk then returned to WWE at Survivor Series while Perry remained missing from AEW, only to surprise everyone by resurfacing in NJPW.
Jack Perry To Wrestle In Chicago
Jack Perry appeared at NJPW Battle In The Valley, attacking Shota Umino before putting on an armband that read “Scapegoat.” Perry then ripped up his AEW contract in the middle of the ring.
NJPW has now announced that Jack Perry will be in action in CM Punk’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois at Windy City Riot on Friday, April 12th. There has been no confirmation of who Perry will be facing at this time.
Additional tickets are on sale NOW for Windy City Riot in the @wintrustarena April 12!
