Jay White is widely recognized as one of the most talented professional wrestlers in the world today, and for good reason. He established himself as a force to be reckoned with in New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he rose to the pinnacle of the industry as the IWGP Heavyweight Champion. White ended up losing a ‘Loser leaves Japan’ match recently and now it seems WWE is the favorite to sign him to a contract.
Jay White recently lost a “Loser leaves Japan” match to Hikuleo. The match, which transpired earlier this month, made fans wonder whether White would go to AEW or WWE next.
At NJPW Battle In The Valley, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion lost to Eddie Kingston in a Loser Leaves NJPW match as well. Due to this, it was made certain that his time in NJPW is done.
Speculation regarding his pro wrestling future ran rampant after that. According to Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer, WWE is “certainly the favorite” to sign the Bullet Club leader.
Nobody in WWE has confirmed Jay White coming in, but they are certainly the favorite. One would think if White was going to AEW, he’d be able to work big shows with New Japan and would continue to do so, but they wouldn’t do the loser leaves for good stipulation.”
Jay White is also looking to move back to the United States. Now that Jay White’s time in NJPW has come to an end, we will have to wait and see whether the Switchblade will end up making his way to WWE in the future.
