TJP used to be known as TJ Perkins during his time in WWE, as he was one of the most talented in-ring performers there. He may not be in WWE anymore, but his personal life is going great as he welcomed a baby into the world.

The former WWE Superstar took to Twitter and revealed to the world that he is now the father to another baby, as he named his baby Noah Nikolas Perkins. Naturally, fans were ecstatic to know about this news.

This is TJP’s second child as he and his wife Aria Blake welcomed their first son, James Theodore Perkins, on August 26, 2021. They had previously announced Noah Perkins’ impending birth earlier this year, so it was just a matter of time. We here at Ringside News would like to congratulate TJP and his wife on this joyous occasion.


TJP was released from WWE and various stories circulated at the time. One report said that he was released for breaking company policy and getting tattoos without permission, but he would shut down those claims. Apparently WWE didn’t know how to use him at the time. TJP saw the clock ticking on his career, and he wanted to accomplish so much more than WWE was giving him the opportunity to do.

“I remember knocking on Vince’s door as I did when things were good and I had a pitch. When I felt like things were bad, I would still knock on his door and I would say ‘this is on me. I feel like I am just a guy for you and I don’t want to be that. I would like to be more. I don’t believe in quitting.’ I worked with him a lot on how I can contribute better and be in a different position.”

“We tried finding a different spot for me. He has so many guys. When it came to a point, he said, ‘look, I don’t know what we would do with you. I don’t want you to be unhappy and go back on the bench.’”

“I told him if it’s not going to work out here, I would like to go do some stuff before I get too old to do it. I can’t be going back to Japan when I’m 50. He said ‘ok, go out and spread your wings. We have a lot of respect for you wanting to do better here but we just don’t know what to do with it.’ That’s all it really came down to. I’m so thankful they were so cool about it.”
