Luke Perry‘s son was crowned with an amazing honor just days after the one year anniversary of the late “Beverly Hills, 90210” actor’s death. Jack Perry, who is a professional wrestler signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW), is best known by his ring name Jungle Boy and was named Rookie of the Year by Wrestling Observer. Posting the career-changing announcement on his social media, Jack Perry expressed his excitement over the wrestling honor. Luke Perry died unexpectedly on March 4, 2019, after experiencing a stroke.
The 22-year-old star has had a rough year since losing his father on what he once said was “the worst night of my life.” Posting the Rookie of the Year ratings on Instagram Friday, Jungle Boy wrote, “I’m honored to be the Wrestling Observer’s rookie of the year. It’s been a wild one.” While he was clearly ecstatic about the award, he admitted that while he’s “come a long way,” he still has “a long way to go.”
Jungle Boy was quiet on the one year anniversary of Luke Perry’s death but weeks ago, he brought tears to his father’s fans when he shared a touching post for his father. Posing alongside legendary wrestler Ric Flair, Jungle Boy smiled and dedicated the picture to his “Riverdale” star dad. “This one’s for my old man,” he captioned the photo. “Nature Boy and Jungle Boy.” But his Instagram is much more than just about wrestling. It’s a platform for him to show off his unbelievable six-pack too!
Jungle Boy recently uploaded a thirsty snap showcasing his rock-hard abs and it left fans drooling. Proudly displaying his washboard six-pack, Jungle Boy looked confident with his shirt off while also showcasing his chiseled chest. Letting this long, curly locks flow down his bare back, Luke Perry’s only son proved he got his daddy’s handsome genes. Men and women alike couldn’t help but double tap his shirtless thirst trap and left even thirstier comments. “I just got a #GirlBoner ??,” one fan wrote. “Was not expecting this when I first opened IG just now,” stated another. “Lord have mercy!” wrote a third. Of course, fans couldn’t help but focus on Jungle Boy’s uncanny resemblance to his late father. “Looking like your Daddy in this photo ❤️,” one person stated. “Your father’s gaze … every trace of him!” wrote another.
