Jack Perry’s unexpected appearance at the Battle in the Valley event left AEW fans surprised in big way. Perry jumped the rails and went into the ring to take out Shota Umino, making it clear he was going after Umino. However, it appears security in attendance were kept in the dark about Perry’s debut.

Jack Perry made a shocking debut at NJPW’s Battle in the Valley on January 13th, stunning fans as he entered the ring and attacked Shota Umino in an unexpected turn of events.

Following his confrontation with Umino, Jack Perry shifted his focus to his AEW contract, tearing it up on camera. This marked Perry’s first pro wrestling appearance since his suspension for his involvement in the 2023 AEW All In brawl.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Jack Perry’s debut and revealed that security in attendance had no idea about Perry’s angle. They believed Perry was a fan in the ring but were immediately informed that was not the case.


“The security didn’t know about this angle. They thought it was a fan hitting the ring. They were quickly told it wasn’t.”

Jack Perry also sent bold message following his appearance at the NJPW event. His first challenger has already stepped up to fight him as well. It remains to be seen how NJPW will be booking Perry’s storyline with Umino in the coming weeks, as he certainly dominated headlines recently.
