Jungle Boy Opens Up About His Feelings Regarding the ‘Four Pillars’ Term
In a highly anticipated showdown, the “Four Pillars” of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) are slated to face off at the Double or Nothing event. The match will see “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, Darby Allin, and Sammy Guevara challenge AEW World Champion MJF for the title. The rivalry between these four has been a focal point of AEW’s programming, with each competitor vying for supremacy.
Jack Perry, known to fans as “Jungle Boy,” recently shared his thoughts on the “Four Pillars” label in an interview with Paste Magazine. Perry expressed skepticism about the term, suggesting it was a self-serving narrative created by MJF to elevate his own status. “At first, it really didn’t mean a lot to me, I think the whole thing was kind of propaganda by MJF, realistically,” Perry said. “It was a way to position himself as the best of the four pillars.”
Despite his initial reservations, Perry acknowledged that the “Four Pillars” branding has taken on a life of its own. He admitted that he initially resisted being labeled as a “pillar” of AEW, preferring to concentrate on delivering top-notch performances. However, Perry has grown to appreciate the recognition from the fans. “It’s nice to see people recognize that, you know,” Perry continued, “just the group of us and what we’re kind of trying to do and help push the company forward and grow with it and whatnot.”
Interestingly, Perry’s association with the other “pillars” hasn’t led to any newfound respect for his rivals. “Honestly, I really don’t particularly like any of the three, like, personally,” Perry said. Despite their shared “pillars” label, each competitor is on a unique journey, which Perry believes is what makes them stand out. Looking ahead to the upcoming match, Perry anticipates an intriguing clash. “I think it’s gonna be a very interesting match,” Perry said of the Sunday battle. “Just because we are so similar in a lot of ways. And we are also different.”
