It’s very sad to hear about the passing of Luke Perry at such an early age. Met him a few times, was always friendly & nice. My thoughts are with his family right now, especially his son, pro wrestler Jack “Jungle Boy” Perry.

1st got to meet Luke when Dad brought him backstage at wcw. The highlight of my match in the cow palace was him coming back to tell us we did a good job. Blessed to have the chance to talk to him recently about his son. He was part of our wrestling family & will be sorely missed

I never met #LukePerry, but through our mutual friend @famousbouncers, he & @kjapa sent my daughters a sweet video saying hello just a few weeks ago. Luke was an icon of my generation and I’m really bummed out by his passing. So I just wanna say, Thanks for making my daughters’ day Luke and I promise to do what I can to do the same for your family.
We would also like to extend our condolences to the entire Perry family at this time.
