Jay White has to leave New Japan Pro-Wrestling

He may not be at the top of WWE’s wish list, but there will be a lot of interest in free agent Jay White. But first, there was another Switchblade-era game… Battle in the valley PPV on February 18th in San Jose, California.

Bullet Club was banned from ringside, stripping White of an advantage he made the most of during his illustrious career in New Japan. The 30-year-old New Zealander has other tricks up his sleeve, and has managed to beat Kingston with some early stalling tactics, exploiting openings created by the Mad King’s midfield.

It looked as if White might live to fight Strong Style another day when Kingston shoved referee Rick Knox, allowing him to hit a low blow and finish his Blade Runner…but Eddie walked out of the ring before Jay could cover.

Switchblade had more breaths, but not by much. It took four back spinners and two Northern Lights drivers (White became the second man ever to come off the last move, joining Jun Akiyama), but White stayed on in the end for three.

After a bow from Kingston, a chant of “Thank you” broke out. Wyatt asked for a microphone and was given it, but before he could speak, David Finlay appeared to knock him out with a shilling before cutting into a heel show.

So it looks like we have an early contender to take Switchblade’s gaijin heel spot. Now we’ll wait to see where Jay White goes next.
