Tony Khan Addresses Jack Perry Returning To AEW At Dynasty

“The Scapegoat” Jack Perry made his return to AEW during Saturday night’s Dynasty PPV when he caused FTR the AEW World Tag Team Championships and helped The Young Bucks to become the reigning World Tag Team Champions.

AEW President Tony Khan took part in the AEW Dynasty post-show media scrum and talked about a number of topics including Jack Perry making his return to the company at Dynasty.

Khan said, “I think Jack Perry’s return got a lot of excitement. It got a huge reaction. Again, I mentioned we were in Chicago, it was a great night when Jon Moxley became IWGP World Champion, and I got to watch Jack Perry’s return to American wrestling in New Japan Pro Wrestling. He got a massive star reaction in New Japan’s Windy City show, and I think he’s been doing great work in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. And when you go over, do an excursion, have a great run like he did in the New Japan Cup, and a great performance like he had against Shota [Umino] in Chicago, I think that had a lot to do with it.”

On why airing the All In footage helped explain where Perry has been:

“I do think we made a bold call in the run up to this match, and it really heightened the circumstances, and I think it added to the presentation of the moment of Jack Perry’s return tonight at AEW Dynasty. And the pay-per-view was a homerun, and I think a lot of people felt like it was a great return. Also, I felt like it was important to partially explain where Jack’s been because the last time we saw him on AEW television was Wembley Stadium. He went through the curtain, and we never saw him again since. So I did feel like some responsibility to the viewer given that I knew Jack was going to return to AEW to explain where he’s been.”
