“Switchblade” Jay White appeared after the main fight between Kenny Omega and Sami Callihan – his appearance suggests a “dream match” with Omega, who continues to reign as Impact and AEW champions.
Bullet Club leader in Slammiversary
New Zealander White is the former IWGP World Champion in New Japan, the leader of the Bullet Club and has made an incredible development in recent years to become one of the best and most attractive wrestlers in the world.
The 28-year-old thus followed in the footsteps of Omega on several levels, who established his reputation as a globally recognized wrestling phenomenon as the captain of NJPW’s Bullet Club, particularly through his groundbreaking streak with Japanese superstar Kazuchika Okada. .
The feud with Wyatt would fit in with much of what Omega has done in AEW and Impact in the past few months: meeting former Bullet Club members The Young Bucks as well as Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows (who attended Slammiversary today. The team title will be from Impact) was the basis for a feud with Wyatt. Head of the current incarnation of the Cult Alliance – and also its project as a “belt collector”, as a collector of different title belts from different leagues.
Kenny Omega vs. Jay White – Bay Impact, NGBW, AEW?
White is currently wearing the NJPW Absolute Openweight title, but on the contrary could reach the Defending Impact against Callihan and possibly the AEW World title. The feud opens up plenty of opportunities for the three collaborating promotions – including the possibility of Omega returning in Japan, two and a half years after losing its title to Hiroshi Tanahashi at the Wrestle Kingdom in Tokyo Dome in early 2019.
For now, the confrontation between Omega and White has remained contentious: the two faced each other, suggesting they were greeting each other with the famous “very sweet” gesture – before White’s NJPW rivals FinJuice (David Finley and Joyce Robinson) attempted to attack. White repelled the attack, gave Robinson a switch blade, and left.
