It’s very sad to hear about the passing of Luke Perry at such an early age. Met him a few times, was always friendly & nice. My thoughts are with his family right now, especially his son, pro wrestler Jack "Jungle Boy" Perry.— The MULTIFARIOUS Matt Hardy (@MATTHARDYBRAND) March 4, 2019
RIP Luke Perry. 90210 was one of my favorite TV shows and I always hoped to be as cool as Dylan McKay. I copied his answering machine and his sideburns. My wrestling name was almost Zack McKay...but I thought it was too obvious that I was combining Zack Morris & Dylan McKay. -- pic.twitter.com/sh1zSuOvU9— Zack Ryder (@ZackRyder) March 4, 2019
1st got to meet Luke when Dad brought him backstage at wcw. The highlight of my match in the cow palace was him coming back to tell us we did a good job. Blessed to have the chance to talk to him recently about his son. He was part of our wrestling family & will be sorely missed— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) March 4, 2019
Terrible news today. Not only was 90210 a staple of my youth but Luke Perry was a stellar human being and incredibly supportive father who I got to talk to on multiple occasions when he’d come watch his son wrestle. My heart breaks for @boy_myth_legend today. pic.twitter.com/5AOd112HxB— Joey Ryan (@JoeyRyanOnline) March 4, 2019
Very sorry to hear of Luke Perry’s passing. I remember talking to Luke when he brought his son @boy_myth_legend to the matches several years ago. Such a nice, down to earth guy. #RIPLukePerry pic.twitter.com/dka6nLHuRx— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) March 4, 2019

I never met #LukePerry, but through our mutual friend @famousbouncers, he & @kjapa sent my daughters a sweet video saying hello just a few weeks ago. Luke was an icon of my generation and I’m really bummed out by his passing. So I just wanna say, Thanks for making my daughters’ day Luke and I promise to do what I can to do the same for your family.
RIP Luke Perry.
