Jay White’s time in Japan is over and these are three matches that would shake the wrestling world. 

Jay White’s time in New Japan came to an end at the hands of Bullet Club stable mate, Hikuleo. Now, his time in Japan is over. That doesn’t mean he’s completely finished with New Japan, but there’s speculation that White could be headed over to the United States. If that is the case, and he pops up in one of the three major organizations in the US, these are three potential matches that could jump off the pages for fans of professional wrestling.

Jay White vs AJ Styles vs Finn Balor

The mark of The Bullet Club is felt across professional wrestling. Not only does the faction have current or former members in nearly every major promotion, but they are in prominent positions as well. If Jay White joined WWE there’s a big match that could be made around the idea of who was the best “leader” of the faction. While the group claims to not have a singular person in charge, that has been one of the biggest debates when talking about BC.

This match would feature three of the most important individuals to hold that position. And it would also feature three of the best workers in the game at the same time. The story is there and fans would be invested the moment they appear on screen together. And here’s the kicker, if WWE wanted to up the stakes, they could add another former Bullet Club member to the mix, Cody Rhodes.

Jay White vs Adam Cole

The story between Jay White and Adam Cole is right there for the telling. Cole’s last match was during the four-way battle for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. It was during that match that White pinned Cole to retain the championship. Cole was also hurt during this match and sat out for months on end.

As fans still wait for his return to the ring, imagine if White was the man standing in the way. The angle at that he intentionally injured Cole is right there, playing off their ties to the Bullet Club. White doesn’t have to sign a long-term deal with AEW to make this happen. But if he was to go on a tour of sorts now that he’s leaving Japan, this would be one of the matches that fans would love to see.

Jay White vs. Josh Alexander

Jay White and Josh Alexander shared the ring together one time. In 2022 they teamed with El Phantasmo and Tomohiro Ishii respectively in a tag team match with Alexander and Ishii coming out on top. But everyone knows that the real match to be seen is a singles contest between White and Alexander.

Alexander is nearing a year-long run as the Impact World Champion. He’s put together defenses against the likes of Bully Ray, Masha Slamovich, Jacob Fatu, Alex Shelley, and a near hour-long fight against Mike “Speedball” Bailey. Adding White’s name to that resume would be a huge contest for Alexander as he looks to continue building his legacy that he’s one of the best names in wrestling that fans aren’t watching closely enough.
