Jungle Boy broke the internet on June 28 when he posted a photo of himself and Anna Jay kissing, revealing that the two were in a relationship.
The reveal came days after Jungle Boy's AEW World Title match against Kenny Omega and he was feeling good about himself.
"I had that picture for a minute, I was sitting on it. I knew it was going to go out at some point. I remember waiting, I actually didn't want to put it out before I wrestled Kenny Omega because I didn't want anything to take away from the match I was going to have as I was stoked about that. We took that the night of Double or Nothing after I won the battle royale. After I wrestled Kenny, I felt like I just had one of the best matches of my life with one of the best wrestlers in the world, so I thought, I might as well (post the picture)," Jungle Boy told Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions.
When asked about the response to the photo, Jungle Boy said, "I've seen more negative responses from men. For the most part, everyone seems happy about it."
Jungle Boy then revealed their "meet cute" story and how a company BBQ and a game of beer pong was the spark that lit the match.
"It's probably not as cute as you'd want it to be. It was a weird year, very stange. I think she came in at a time where I was at home for a couple of months, they weren't bringing people from California and she lived in Georgia, so she got in the fold somehow. When I came back, she was there. I met her thanks to Joey Janela, playing beer pong at a company BBQ. Joey asked me to be his partner and we played against her and Allen Angels. We were playing beer pong, but I could see some googly eyes a little bit. I was like, 'Okay, that's interesting.' I remember later that night, Sonny Kiss actually coming up to me, grinning, saying, 'I need to tell you something.' I'm like, 'I already know.' We kind of just started hanging out. It was strange because I'd see her once every two weeks because of the taping schedule. It was a weird way to get to know someone. We're also at work and there's a lot going on. It was cool. We got to know each other and all that. One thing turned to another and here we are," he said.
Love. You have to love it.
Jungle Boy and his AEW tag team partner Luchasaurus are slated to challenge for the AEW Tag Team Titles on the August 18 episode of AEW Dynamite. Anna Jay is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury.
