Jack Perry underwent a transformation after turning heel a couple of months ago. He is now in the news after a backstage confrontation with CM Punk and now it appears Tony Khan has been urged to fire Jack Perry after the controversy.
During AEW All In Zero Hour, Jack Perry made reference to his controversy with CM Punk when it came to using real glass. This led to CM Punk and Perry having a backstage scuffle right before Punk’s match at All In London.
It was reported that CM Punk and Jack Perry have been suspended following their backstage confrontation. While speaking on recent episode of his podcast, Jim Cornette talked about CM Punk and Jack Perry’s backstage confrontation. Cornette urged Tony Khan to fire Jack Perry for his involvement in the controversy.
“I don’t know if Tony will realize that he’s continuing to let these j******* do this or whether he just thinks this is stuff that happens and there’s nothing he can do about it. […] Fire the f******* little goof. Send a message. ‘Look, I don’t care if ya’ll have a problem and you want to talk about it in the back, then that’s fine. Well, I’ll sit down. But the next person that does s*** on the air, I’m firing them just like I fired [Jack Perry]. Get it?’ That would send a message.”
CM Punk also reportedly threatened to quit AEW over this situation. Their backstage fight also killed morale in AEW. We’ll have to wait and see what will become of them both as they are currently suspended after their backstage fight.
