AEW President Tony Khan comments on Jack Perry being the “Scapegoat” character in NJPW

After being off AEW television for months due to a suspension, Jack Perry resurfaced at the NJPW Battle in the Valley event in January. After attacking Shota Umino, Perry took out his “AEW contract” and ripped it up.

While speaking to, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about Perry potentially returning to AEW television with the “Scapegoat” character. Here was Khan’s response…

“Well, I think you gotta stay tuned. Absolutely, Jack’s doing great things in New Japan. The New Japan Cup – he’s had a great run. He’s established himself over there. He feels he’s the ‘Scapegoat.’ But he’s doing great things, and he’s wrestling for a great promotion, and it’s been great tracking Jack’s progress in New Japan. And I think he’s done excellent work there.” (quote courtesy of
