This is despite the fact that he had no prior television acting experience before joining Tony Khan’s promotion.

However, the American wrestler is still dealing with pre-game nervousness and has instituted a strange ritual to calm him down before he goes through the curtain.

The former AEW World Tag Team Champion admits he vomits into a trash can almost every time he prepares for a wrestling match.

Jungle Boy told What Culture Wrestling: “Now I’m still nervous.

“Most weeks before I go out, I throw up in a trash can. But in a way most of the fears are gone.”

“I know I can keep up with these guys. I can do what I need to do and now that that part is out of the way I feel more confident in what I’m doing.”

“I’m just trying to improve a little bit every time because that’s all you could wish for.”

However, it’s no stranger to Jungle Boy that Beverly Hills, 90210 star Luke has rushed into the spotlight.


In fact, the late actor was no stranger to professional wrestling, having supported close friend David Arquette in his quest for success in the sport before passing away in 2019 at the age of 52.

Jungle Boy will be in action at Double or Nothing on May 28th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In fact, the California star will be in contention for the AEW World Championship when he takes on Sammy Guevara, Darby Allin and defending champion MJF in a Pillars Four-Way match.
