Going by the name “Jungle Boy, ” Luke Perry’s son, Jack, is making a name for himself as a pro wrestler, Wearing animal print and sporting a long mane, Jack’s ring persona embodies a Tarzan-like character. He tells Sports Illustrated:

“I’m a big fan of Conor McGregor, and I always noticed how he’d stand before his fights in this monkey-like posture. He adds, the announcer told me that he had a nickname for me and said, ‘Jungle Boy’ Nate Coy. At first, I hated it. I thought, ‘What did he just stick me with?’ Then I started to develop the character around the name, and I love it now. It’s completely my own.”
