But had his contract terminated after losing a match to IWGP United States Champion Kenny Omega earlier this month. White’s future was uncertain at best before the loss, but now it’s even more so. His place in the Wrestle Kingdom 12 main event is up in the air and his future as a professional wrestler is uncertain. In this news, we explore what happened in White’s previous match against Omega and how it could impact his future as a professional wrestler.
Jay White’s future is more clear after a Loser leaves Japan Match
Following Tama Tonga’s departure from the 2018 G1 Climax, Jay White has taken on a larger role in the tournament. On July 26th, White defeated Lance Archer to advance to the semifinals. White had lost his last two matches against Kota Ibushi and Tetsuya Naito in the Group Stage, but he looked confident against Archer.
White is most likely going to face Shinsuke Nakamura in the semifinals. Nakamura was suppose to face Juice Robinson but he was unable to compete because of an injury. Nakamura has been dominant in 2018, winning all of his matches so far.
Jay White’s wrestling style
Jay White is an up-and-coming wrestler who has a bright future ahead of him. His wrestling style is unique and very impressive. He uses a lot of agility and quickness to avoid opponents and take them down with powerful takedowns. He also has great control over his opponents, using strikes and submissions to win matches. Jay White is definitely someone to watch in the future, as his style could become more popular among fans.
Jay White and the New Japan Pro-Wrestling
After Jay White’s loss to SANADA in the main event of Dominion 6.9 in Osaka on January 5, it was report that the New Japan Pro-Wrestling star is considering leaving Japan and moving to America to continue his wrestling career. The following day, NJPW announced that they have released White from their contract effective immediately.
White’s departure comes as a surprise after he had been consider one of the top stars in NJPW. A two-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion and former WWE NXT Champion, White has put on some of the best matches in NJPW over the last few years. His matches against Kenny Omega and SANADA were particularly memorable.
White’s decision to leave may be based on a desire for more creative freedom, as he has previously stated that. He does not enjoy working under a network television schedule. With Dominion set to air weekly on AXS TV starting February 11, White may have felt that continuing his career under those conditions would be difficult.
It remains to be seen what White will do next, but it is safe to say that he will be one of the most highly sought after wrestlers in the world once again.
