Jack Perry saw a change in character after turning heel a couple of months ago and fans were interested in him again. He is now in the news after a backstage confrontation with CM Punk and now it appears Eric Bischoff believes AEW should fire Jack Perry for his involvement in the AEW All In backstage fight.
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 had been suspended following their backstage confrontation. Punk was ultimately fired from AEW and many people were relieved.
While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff was very harsh when it came to his opinion about Jack Perry, stating that he believes AEW should fire Jack Perry for his involvement in the AEW All In backstage fight.
“Just cut the guy [Perry] loose. First of all, you’re talking about a thimble full of talent to begin with. He’s really only there because his dad [Luke Perry] was a soap opera star — that’s it. Otherwise, he’s making $200 a night on the indie circuit somewhere. This guy is not a star, he’ll never be a star. By virtue of the fact that he thinks using real glass is going to get him heat, [it] should tell you everything you need to know about his potential. He doesn’t understand the very fundamentals of the business.”
Tony Khan confirmed that Jack Perry has been indefinitely suspended after the AEW All In backstage incident as well. We’ll have to wait and see what will become of Jack Perry in the end.
