WWE has their eye on many big names in the pro wrestling world, and the free agency market saw a huge addition when Jay White left NJPW. Now, we are waiting to see what the Switchblade does next after reports broke that he wants to make a move back to the United States.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Jay White has spoken to WWE, but it wasn’t said how far along those talks are. On that note, he is also speaking to AEW.
At this point, Jay White is reportedly in a 50/50 situation regarding which company he will choose. AEW and WWE both have things to offer him, and he realizes that the decision is in his court now.
“Regarding Jay White, we are told that White has been talking to WWE but has not signed. He is also talking to AEW.
“From someone familiar with the situation they described it as 50/50 which side he would go with.
“Doing the loser leaves town is weird because if he does sign with AEW, he could still work for New Japan, but I guess he wanted to leave New Japan either way rather than come in for major dates so did the total exit angle before while still talking with both sides.”
WWE reportedly has their eye on someone much bigger than Jay White. Only time will tell if that name is revealed to be Kenny Omega or the Young Bucks, but nothing would surprise us anymore in the ever-changing world of pro wrestling.
What’s your take on WWE bringing in Jay White? Should he go to AEW instead? Sound off in the comments!
