Jungle Boy entered AEW without any previous television experience in the ring. That pressure didn’t seem to bother Jack Perry on camera, because he took to wrestling on television like a fish to water. It seems that he is just excellent at putting on a confident face.
Jungle Boy is set to take part in a big 4 pillars 4-way match at AEW Double or Nothing later this month. The former Jurassic Express member will take on MJF, Sammy Guevara, and Darby Allin in that contest.
During a recent interview with What Culture, Jack Perry revealed that he still throws up in a trash can before every match. Obviously, those pre-performance jitters still get to him.
“Now, I still get nervous. I throw up in a trash can most weeks before I go out. But, in a way, most of the jitters are gone. I know I can hang with these guys. I can do what I need to do, and now that part’s out of the way, I feel more confident in what I’m doing. Just trying to improve a little bit each time, you know it’s all you can ask for.”
It’s natural to get nervous before a performance. A lot of people in entertainment and sports deal with the same issue. If anything, Jungle Boy’s nervousness is a sign that he still takes his profession seriously.
We’ll have to see if Jack Perry is able to pull down the AEW World Title at Double or Nothing in Las Vegas on May 28th. He will have a lot of eyes on him in that match. It’s also very likely that he will need to find a trash can before making his way to the ring.
