Belief that Jay White will be heading to the United States when his NJPW contract expires

At NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 event, Jay White lost the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship to Kazuchika Okada which led to internet speculation about White’s future with the brand.

According to Fightful Select, White’s contract is coming up soon and there is said to be “a whole lot of interest” from wrestling promotions. Fightful noted that according to sources in the company, it’s expected that White will be leaving Japan for the United States. WWE sources reportedly “seemed confident they would land White” although companies can’t officially negotiate with him until his contract expires.

White has previously made appearances in AEW and has also teased working with WWE in the past.

White recently challenged Hikuleo to a “loser leaves Japan” match.
