Jack Perry surprised fans with his presence at the Battle in the Valley event last month, delighting AEW enthusiasts and generating anticipation for his debut wrestling match with NJPW on March 6th. After triumphing over Shota Umino, Perry continued to notch up victories before ultimately succumbing to SANADA. With his tour now finished, confirmation has emerged regarding his return to AEW.

The altercation led to Perry’s suspension from AEW and Punk’s release from the company. Perry has since begun working with NJPW but remains contracted to AEW. The incident involving Punk unfolded when he advised Perry against using real glass for a television segment.

During his match at All In, Perry incorporated a spot involving a car windshield and made a pointed remark to the camera about using real glass, saying, “Real glass, cry me a river,” which sparked the physical confrontation.

It was reported that  Tony Khan might still blame Jack Perry for losing costing him CM Punk.


In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer stated that Jack Perry was sent home after the Wembley incident and didn’t receive any communication from Khan thereafter. However, he later apologized via text messages, clarifying that he never intended to cause any trouble and expressing remorse. It was added that his current storyline in NJPW will eventually lead to his AEW return.

“He did receive communication from the company through legal channels. Subsequently, they had discussions, and he apologized to Khan. Despite this, he has not been reinstated yet. The current storyline unfolding in Japan seems to be setting the stage for his eventual comeback.”

Tony Khan also addressed Jack Perry’s NJPW run and had nothing but great things to say about him. As for Jack Perry, he vows to dominate NJPW and will continue his feud with Shota Umino, so it remains to be seen how he will continue to be booked in the coming weeks.
