As previously noted, there has been speculation about former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jay White possibly heading to either WWE or AEW. White lost a “Loser Leaves Japan” match to Hikuleo at the February 11th 2023 New Beginning event and is expected to be done with NJPW following a match against Eddie Kingston on February 18th.

Dave Meltzer of noted the following regarding rumors of White’s potential signing with WWE…

“Those in WWE who would normally know of major acquisitions during Wrestlemania season didn’t know about this one and only said that there was a much bigger major free agent in play right now that was internally the priority.”

Meltzer added that AEW would “stylistically” be the better option but WWE “has its obvious benefits as being the hotter company right now.”
