Luke Perry‘s son is sharing footage from the night before his dad’s fatal stroke, revealing he’s been holding onto it because the morning after was “the worst night of my life.”
Jack Perry, known as Jungle Boy in the ring, posted a video showing him wrestling Rich Swann hours before his dad was hospitalized.
“I never shared this because of the circumstances at the time,” he began, before adding the family turmoil that followed.
“The morning after this match was the worst of my life, but for a minute here with Rich, everything felt ok.”
Thanking his friend and fellow wrestler “for everything,” he encourages fans to watch when he returns to Game Changer Wrestling this Friday.
“It’ll feel good to be home,” Jack wrote.
As The Blast reported, two days after the “Riverdale” star’s death, Jack pulled himself out of a scheduled match to mourn the loss of his father.
Later that day, he shared his thoughts on social media, writing, “He was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, he was always Dad. He loved and supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be.”
He continued, “I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for. I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth. I’ll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you proud. I love you Dad.”
Jack returned to the ring one month later and thanked fans for their support.
Luke Perry died on March 4, days after being hospitalized following a stroke.
At the time, he was “surrounded by his children, Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends.”
Perry was 52 years old.
