Christian Cage made a surprise return on last week’s Dynamite, resuming his feud with Jungle Boy Jack Perry by macing his former protege.
On the Feb. 22 episode, Cage was set to villainously monologue into Tony Schiavone’s microphone. Perry was ready. He speared Christian so hard the ankle boots almost flew off his ex-mentor’s sock-less feet, and followed that up with a sliding elbow to the back of Cage’s head. It seemed, like Jack told us after he beat Luchasaurus (and say, where is that dinosaur man anyway?) at Full Gear, Christian had unlocked the rage and confidence in the young pillar.
But an old problem arose to bite JBJP in the ass. His conscience forced him to hesitate before delivering a Con-Chair-To to Captain Charisma, and that allowed Christian to hit him in the nards. Tables turned, and Cage didn’t blink before smashing Perry’s face into one of the chairs.
He did pause between the second and third face-smashings to yell, “I hate you, you son of a bitch” in Jack’s face, though.
Clearly, Jungle Boy has a lot to learn from the former NWA & WWE champ if he’s ever going to be Jungle Man.
Let us know if you think Jack will grow up before he faces Cage again, presumably at Revolution in a little more than a week. And check out the highlights from the Feb. 22 Dynamite below. We’ve put all the YouTube videos AEW has released as of this morning in a playlist, and since they don’t release everything that way at the same time, we’ve got Twitter clips of the other big moments and matches below that.
