jungle boy - A Future Pillar in Wrestling

All Elite Wrestling has made it apparent that its doors are open to all comers. 

The tarzan boy cometh


While AEW will more than benefit from the likes of The Young Bucks,  Kenny Omega, and Chris Jericho – we’ll discuss that last one in due time  – it will also serve as a platform for rising stars with something to  prove.

Jungle Boy  -

a star on the rise

Born Jack Perry, the wild-haired wrestler known as Jungle Boy is the  real-life son of Luke Perry. If the latter name sounds familiar, it’s  probably because you’ve seen him as a regular cast member on Beverly  Hills, 90210, and, more recently, Riverdale.

One would think, then, that Jack would grow up and become involved in  acting like this father.

A Chip Off The Old Block

What many people don’t know, though, is how he got his start. Surprisingly, Jungle Boy started wrestling he was about ten years old. 

He learned under the tutelage of Ric Drasin, who wrestled for 36 years,  most notably in the National Wrestling Alliance and the American  Wrestling Federation.
