• Triple H Is Confident About Signing Former World Champion
Could former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jay White be on his way to WWE, with his contract with NJPW expiring recently?
While Kota Ibushi might not want to sign a full-time contract with anyone (WWE or AEW), WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H is confident that he’ll secure White.
Here’s what WrestleVotes told Give Me Sport:
“I heard recently from a source that the longer that Jay White doesn’t show up in Jacksonville (AEW), the more confident WWE is.”
White signing with All Elite Wrestling wouldn’t be a surprise at all, since he has friends over there and has wrestled in that promotion as well (due to AEW’s partnership with NJPW).
However, due to the backstage drama in AEW, too much talent on the roster with not enough TV time, and Triple H now leading WWE, White (age 30) might end up in WWE.
