Video: Jack Perry resurfaces at NJPW event and tears up his “AEW contract”

In September of 2023, AEW terminated the contract of CM Punk following his backstage altercation with Jack Perry at the All In PPV event. Samoa Joe was said to have been “furious” about the incident and Punk reportedly had to be talked into doing their match.

After being off AEW television for months due to a suspension, Perry resurfaced at Saturday night’s NJPW Battle in the Valley event. After attacking Shota Umino, Perry took out his “AEW contract” and ripped it up. Perry was wearing an armband with “scapegoat” written on it.
