AEW’s Jungle Boy, aka Jack Perry says that AEW does a great job with testing for COVID-19 and opens up about his father’s support for him throughout his journey.
Jungle Boy is one of the fastest rising stars in All Elite Wrestling. Often touted as somebody with natural charisma, Jungle Boy may have his genetics to thank for that.
Speaking with FOX News, Jungle Boy opened up about his relationship with his father, Luke Perry, and how much the actor supported his son's dream up until his untimely death in 2019.
“For me, that was cool to have someone to talk about it,” he explained. “In a lot of ways, I think acting and wrestling are different, but they’re similar at the same time. But I think they’re things that a lot of people theoretically want to do when they’re younger and then give up on it along the way.”
“So it was cool to have someone to talk to who had followed through with their childhood dream [of being an actor] and made it happen,” Perry continued. “There were so many things [we shared] along the way, but it was cool to be able to talk to someone and bounce ideas off of someone who had taken their dream all the way and fulfilled it.”
All Elite Wrestling has persevered despite the global pandemic and Jungle Boy says that he is very proud of AEW doing all they can to keep people safe.
“[AEW] has actually done a really good job with that,” he shared. “We are tested every time we go to the venue. Everyone gets tested, and we’ve really done a good job of keeping it at a minimum. It’s very safe. Everyone’s wearing masks around the production the entire day. The thing is, I think everyone’s very passionate about AEW. So I think even when we go home, people are being as safe as they can, not wanting to jeopardize the entire team and being unable to participate.”
