When Luke Perry passed away today, a few days after suffering a major stroke, his friends and family began mourning their loss. What some fans might not know is that Luke Perry’s son is a professional wrestler, and goes by the name Jungle Boy.
Who is Luke Perry’s son?
Not only that — but before Luke Perry passed away, he had the chance to see his son make a dream a reality. Jungle Boy signed an official contract with the new AEW wrestling and even got his own official t-shirt fans could buy.
The news broke last month that Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks signed Jungle Boy to an AEW contract.
