On the June 15 episode of AEW Dynamite, Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy) lost the AEW Tag Team Titles to The Young Bucks in a ladder match.
After the match, Christian Cage turned on Jungle Boy, laying him out with the conchairto. Christian get Luchasaurus on his side in the subsequent week before Jungle Boy returned at AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest week two, when it was revealed that Luchasaurus was actually against Christian.
Speaking on Steven's Wrestling Journey, Jungle Boy gave an in-character comment on the storyline.
"I spent a lot of time with Christian when we were friends, and I learned a lot about the way he thinks and works. That's a guy who thinks he's always one step ahead. I knew, as soon as he turned, I needed to be two steps ahead of him. I talked to Luchasaurus and discussed it and I knew Christian would be thinking, 'this guy is going to come kill me.' I said, 'Here's the thing, I know you can beat him up day one, but I need you to save that for me. Nobody is going to beat him up before I do.' We came up with this plan, we tricked him, and we kept him right where we needed to have him until I got back. It worked out pretty well because people were surprised on the other side when it was revealed," he said.
Jungle Boy has yet to get his hands on Christian, who has run away each time Jungle Boy has chased after him.
