NXT star Nikkita Lyons opens up about going to middle school with AEW World Tag Team Champion Jungle Boy 

WWE NXT Star Nikkita Lyons and one-half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions Jungle Boy have much in common outside of wrestling. It seems like both the wrestlers went to the same middle school.

Nikkita posted a photo on Twitter last evening and received a response from one of the fans, which featured a GIF of Jacky Perry in it. Lyons revealed that she and the AEW star had once attended middle school together and gave some praise for Jungle Boy. 

Fun fact we went to middle school together! Jungle boy is

Jungle Boy also took to Twitter and responded to Lyons’ tweet with a simple emoji of a turtle which might represent the mascot of the two’s former middle school.

Nikkita Lyons and Jungle Boy both are doing quite well

Nikkita and Jack both are on a good run as of now on AEW and WWE. Things are going pretty well for the former classmates. Lyons has won two out of two appearances between NXT 2.0 and the former 205 Live.

Jurassic Express successfully defended the AEW World Tag Team Championships this past Sunday at AEW Revolution where they defeated Young Buks, which is the stable of Matt and Nick Jackson, and reDRagon which is the stable of Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly in a triple threat tag team match.
