Jack Perry Apologised To Tony Khan Following AEW All In Altercation With CM Punk

Jack Perry should be back in AEW sooner or later.

Jack Perry attempted to apologise to Tony Khan following the incident at last year's AEW All In, according to a new report. 

Perry infamously had a physical backstage altercation with CM Punk after he made the comment (to camera) "It's real glass, go cry me a river" during his pre-show match with Hook. This was in reference to a prior incident where Punk allegedly admonished Perry for wanting to use real glass (as opposed to stunt glass) during a segment planned for an episode of Collision. 

The altercation at Wembley ultimately led to AEW firing Punk, while Perry was suspended. He resurfaced in New Japan Pro-Wrestling in January with a 'Scapegoat' gimmick. 

Per Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Perry apologised to Khan after the incident with Punk and repeatedly texted the AEW owner to tell him that he never meant to cause any trouble. Perry supposedly did not hear back from Khan, though he did hear from the company through lawyers. The two eventually spoke, with Perry once again apologising.

Meltzer added that Perry's current storyline in New Japan is being done to lead to Perry's eventual AEW return. Khan recently praised Perry for doing 'great things' in NJPW.
