Jack Perry expected to make “an eventual return” to AEW following NJPW stint

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.

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com recently noted that Perry has not been fired by AEW. Meltzer provided additional details about Perry’s situation following the incident with CM Punk at All In

“The way we’ve heard it, was that he was sent home after Wembley and never heard back from [AEW President] Tony Khan. He apologized, kept texting him about he never meant to cause any trouble and was sorry. He did hear from the company through lawyers. Then they talked and he apologized to Khan. But he still hasn’t been brought back. What they are doing now in Japan is storyline to lead to an eventual return.”
