Jack Perry is gearing up for his first wrestling match since his suspension following AEW All In at Wembley Stadium. The events surrounding All In had quite an impact on his wrestling journey.
During All In, Perry faced HOOK in a match for the FTW Championship and lost, marking his final AEW match in 2023. However, the night didn’t end well for him, as a backstage incident at Wembley led to his suspension from AEW.
Since his suspension, Jack Perry has been absent from AEW television, with only one wrestling appearance to his name. He made his debut for New Japan Pro Wrestling at Battle in the Valley, where he attacked Shota Umino following the opening match. Perry showcased a new look, sporting a bigger beard and making a statement by tearing up an AEW contract and donning an armband with the word ‘scapegoat.’
Now, the wrestling world is abuzz with the news of Jack Perry’s upcoming match, officially announced for the NJPW Windy City Riot show on April 12. This event will take place in Chicago, Illinois, and while Perry’s opponent has not been disclosed as of yet, there’s speculation that he might square off against Shota Umino, given their previous altercation.
In addition to Perry’s return, the NJPW Windy City Riot show will also mark the debut of former WWE star Mustafa Ali, as he faces Hiromu Takahashi, making it a highly anticipated event for wrestling fans.
