IMPACT Wrestling will have to breathe without the Switchblade going forward as a new report says Jay White has finished up with the company.
The Forbidden Door has gone from a cute wrestling saying to a legitimate blockbuster event featuring the best of New Japan Pro Wrestling taking on the best of AEW. But the Forbidden Door has also carved a path through IMPACT Wrestling with stars from NJPW, AEW, and the former ROH all making appearances for the company in recent times.
One of those stars is NJPW and Bullet Club’s Jay White, who debuted for IMPACT back at the end of the Slammiversary pay-per-view in June 2021. At that show, White confronted Bullet Club alumni Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Kenny Omega before all four men were attacked by Juice Robinson, David Finlay, and Sami Callihan.
White competed sixteen times in an IMPACT Wrestling ring, locking horns with the likes of Alex Shelley, Eric Young, and Chris Sabin but now PWInsider has reported White’s time in IMPACT is over.
Jay White’s schedule in Japan is said to be the main reason for Switchblade being unable to continue with IMPACT Wrestling, at least for the time being. White recently competed in his first match in Japan for over a year as he was part of a Bullet Club team that lost to Kazuchika Okada, Toru Yano, Jado, and Tama Tonga at the final of Best of Super Juniors.
Jay White is scheduled to challenge Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at the upcoming Dominion in Osaka-jo Hall show.
