New Japan Pro Wrestling star Jay White recently spoke to NJPW1972.com, New Japan’s English language site.
The Bullet Club member earned the right to headline Wrestle Kingdom 15 Night 2 back at NJPW’s Power Struggle event. White would defeat Kota Ibushi and take his G1 winning opportunity to fight for the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championships.
Whilst current title holder Tetsuya Naito challenged Ibushi to a match on Night 1 of Wrestle Kingdom 15? Jay White will now get the winner of that bout the night after, hoping to capitalise on their ‘weakened’ state.
During the interview with NJPW1972, Jay White would reference the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst Japan has been able to have fans in attendance for a number of shows, they still have strict protocols in place. The New Zealand native White stated that he wants to return home after winning the belts at Wrestle Kingdom 15 Night 2.
Jay White on ‘The Big Ifs’ of 2021
“There’s a lot of big ifs next year” Jay White would begin. “We don’t know what’s going to happen in the world. People say that this year was a nightmare year; for some people, their nightmare year begins when I win both belts.”
“It’s all out of our control, just like Wrestle kingdom is out of your control” Jay White would continue. “I will win on January 5, and then moving on from that? I’ve been in Japan too long. I need a break. So I’m taking my titles, and I’m going home. Whatever anyone might say, screw them. I’m taking those belts and going home.”
