Jack Perry’s shocking appearance at NJPW Battle in the Valley event brought joy to AEW fans and he would go on to have solid run in NJPW, which is still going on even now. He had a solid match at NJPW Windy City Riot and now his AEW return status has been revealed.

Jack Perry competing in the Windy City Riot show in Chicago, CM Punk’s hometown, was noteworthy due to his previous altercation with Punk. Aware that he might face a hostile reception from the Chicago crowd because of his past conflict with Punk, Perry decided to lean into the controversy with his bold entrance.

Perry walked out draped in the Chicago flag, which was an audacious move given the location and the history between him and Punk. He also wore his “Cry me river” jacket, directly referencing the line that sparked the altercation with Punk.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that Jack Perry’s match against Shota Umino at NJPW Windy City Riot was his final NJPW match and that he will be returning to AEW imminently.


This was Perry’s final New Japan match and he’s starting imminently in AEW.

The Young Bucks also view controversy as an essential element of Jack Perry’s rise to superstardom. With AEW Dynasty set to take place on April 21st, it is likely fans will see Jack Perry return at the pay-per-view.
