BIOGRAPHY

Jay White made his pro debut in September 2013, before attending the December 2014 NJPW tryout, and joining the Dojo in January 2015.

That same month he had his first New Japan match, opposite Alex Shelley. From there he gathered a following for his dedication when training, and his use of spectacular missile dropkicks and cross body attacks. Much like his mentor Prince Devitt, White was a foreigner who Japanese fans flocked to as one of the New Japan Dojo’s own.

In June 2016, after a match at Osaka Jo Hall on the Dominion card, White announced his excursion, and headed to America to wrestle for ROH.

After a series of disturbing vignettes aired through the summer of 2017, White returned at Power Struggle that November. He immediately challenged then IWGP Intercontinental Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi and laid him out after his already grueling match with Kota Ibushi.

His controversial return led to a re-debut at Wrestle Kingdom 12 opposite Tanahashi. He was unsuccessful against the Ace, but the next night would set his sights on Kenny Omega, issuing a challenge for the US Championship. On January 6, White formally joined CHAOS, but with the ominous warning that he was only acting in his own best interests and could strike his stablemates at any time.

On January 28 in Sapporo, White beat Omega to become only the second IWGP US Champion. Already a champion mere weeks after his return to New Japan, White looks to build his legacy, and to have everyone breathe with the Switchblade.
