He said, “This could be a death blow to Jack Perry’s career. That ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ and then when he comes back, how much have they really missed him? His worth is gonna be immediately put right out there on front street. ” Booker T claimed that suspension could be a major worry for Perry since fans could forget his heel turn and fiery form he enjoyed.
