According to the latest update, WWE are the favourite to sign major free agent, Jay White.
Jay White’s NJPW contract is reportedly due to be up already, or up very, very soon. In his last two matches in NJPW he has lost a “loser leaves Japan” match vs Hikuleo, and most recently on the Weekend lost a “loser leaves NJPW” match to Eddie Kingston at NJPW Battle In The Valley.
In Dave Meltzer’s Daily Update on the F4WOnline website, Meltzer stated that WWE are currently the favourites to land Jay White’s signature:
“Nobody in WWE has confirmed Jay White coming in, but they are certainly the favorite. One would think if White was going to AEW, he’d be able to work big shows with New Japan and would continue to do so, but they wouldn’t do the loser leaves for good stipulation.”– Dave Meltzer
Jay White is a former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a Triple Crown Champion & the first ever NJPW Grand Slam Champion. Very high accolades, especially for Gaijin. This of course makes him an attractive target for all companies, whether that be WWE, AEW or anywhere else for that matter.
