He stated that the situation occurred in England last year. 

During CM Punk’s sit-down interview with Ariel Helwani, among the multitude of topics that were touched on, he spoke in-depth about the origins of the issues between himself and Jack Perry that led to their physical altercation at AEW All In. 

Punk’s interview was recapped on Busted Open by David LaGreca and Bully Ray. Bully went on to recount an interaction he had with Perry in England in 2023. He stated that he went to introduce himself to Perry and was treated like a ‘young boy’. 

This is a snot-nosed kid problem. This is a punk-ass kid problem, and I believe every single last word that (CM) Punk is saying about Jack Perry because I had my own incident with Jack Perry in England a year ago and there wasn’t really an incident because if there was an incident, Jack Perry wouldn’t be around anymore. Jack Perry, came off, to me, like a very disrespectful young wrestler. Especially when I went out of my way to introduce myself to him and extend my hand with a smile on my face and I was treated like a young boy by Jack Perry. Blown off, disregarded, and I see you (David LaGreca) shaking your head right now and as God is my witness, should the good Lord strike me down with lightning, I’m telling you the truth.

So when I hear these stories about a Jack Perry, like Punk saying he carried himself and he disrespected when he wasn’t listening to an authority figure like the doctor or he wasn’t listening to an authority figure like Tony Schiavone or anybody else, I believe them, because I witnessed the disrespectful behavior myself. 

Jack Perry is currently working with New Japan Pro-Wrestling and is scheduled to be in action at Windy City Riot in Chicago, Illinois.
