Switchblade Jay White Takes A Stab At Jon Moxley

Jon Moxley Jay White

Switchblade Jay White has fired an arrow right through the forbidden door by taking a jab at current IWGP United States Champion Jon Moxley.

Moxley’s wife and mother-to-be Renee Paquette hosts the hugely successful Oral Sessions podcast that ‘Platinum’ Max Caster referred to on Dynamite recently. Taking to Twitter, Paquette asked fans to send questions for Jon Moxley as he is set to be the guest host of an episode of the podcast.

The full tweet from Paquette read:

“Alright guys. Big ask here- my darling husband @JonMoxleyis going to be guest hosting an episode of Oral Sessions while I figure out this whole mom thing. Let’s ask him for relationship/ life advice to answer on the show! Use #AskMox@TheVolumeSports”

One person keen to get a question in was former IWGP World Champion and current New Japan Pro Wrestling star, Jay White.

Taking a jab at Moxley, White responded:

#AskMox What’s it like having a losing record against Jay White?”

Whether or not Jon Moxley actually answers that is up for debate until his hosting duties air but White is right about that losing record. The two men have only ever set foot in the ring together on two occasions in August 2019.

On the 3rd of August Jay White teamed with Bullet Club partner Chase Owens to defeat Moxley and his sometimes-protégé Shota Umino. The very next night Moxley and White met in one on one action as part of that year’s G1 Climax tournament. Again White came out on top over Moxley on his way to winning the B block in the competition. This was Moxley’s first pinfall loss in any company since leaving WWE. Moxley finished an agonising two points behind White along with Hirooki Goto and Tetsuya Naito. Jay White would not win the G1 Climax however as A block winner Kota Ibushi ultimately defeated him in the tournament final.

Jay White is the current NEVER Openweight Champion in NJPW after the New Zealander defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi for the gold on Night 1 of Wrestling Dontaku early in May 2021. With Moxley still a champion in NJPW and active with the company, there is every chance he will have the opportunity to even the odds with Switchblade at some point in the future.
