‘Switchblade’ Jay White Joins NJPW Group Chaos To End Bullet Club

Published

on

Jay White Okada

At New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s New Years Dash event, the man they call Switchblade decided to make a big decision. Jay White turned down Kenny Omega’s offer to join Bullet Club, which was a pretty huge move by him. NJPW has made Bullet Club out to be an unstoppable force and other groups had to form to stand any chance of survival against them. Plus, if you’re an American, Canadian, or UK guy….typically you were installed in Bullet Club from the day you entered. Basically, if you were from the West…you were the bad guy in Japan.

That was never the case with Jay White, who made his name in the United States before being picked up by NJPW. They expect him to be a big star for him. Though this plain-looking guy who shows no appearance of starpower is liked by people, he’s also not in the best creative mode. NJPW made sure to take White away from Bullet Club, seeing as they want him to take on Omega soon.

Instead of having him forge his own path away from top members of the promotion, New Japan decided to have him join Chaos. This is the group led by long-time NJPW golden boy and IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kazuchika Okada. The group was oiginally formed in 2009 by Shinsuke Nakamura, and it appears that White decided to join the group in order to end Bullet Club.

NJPW’s Idea Of A Teammate To Teammate Talk (English To Japanese Version)

White met with Okada, (on camera of course, fourth wall people), and the two spoke about his decision to join. White told Okada that he wanted to end the Bullet Club, which set them on a mutual path. The BC has been a thorn in the side of the champion for a long time now, which means he could not be happier to see Jay White join his group of merry men.

White would tell Okada that he was not just going to be another member of his group, basically saying he was not a puppet to keep him champion. I mean, the NJPW management does that well enough already. White went on to say that he feels Bullet Club are eager to turn on Omega and that he’s going to help give them a reason. He would go on to say that when the time comes, he’ll turn on Okada. The champion would say he was fine with that.

The two want to end their mutual enemy, and it makes sense to join forces. The clear point for NJPW is to have Jay White go after the IWGP United States Title that Kenny Omega holds. NJPW also set themselves up for a way to write out Omega if he does decide to leave them. His contract with the promotion is up next month, and though it’s likely he stays another year, he has not made anything official on that. That said, NJPW set up a way to both take the title off Omega and write him out of his faction if he decides to go.

Ja’ Von’s Weekly Impact Wrestling YouTube Report (6/23/18)

Published

on

This week’s episode of Impact featured a tag team main event between oVe and Pentagon Jr. & Fantasma. We also saw new tag team champions crowned in LAX.

We saw a decline in viewership this week as Impact went up against the NBA Draft which you can read about here. But how did they do in terms of views on YouTube?

Here is the YouTube breakdown (numbers collected at 2:30PM EST):

  1. Sami Callihan and oVe Rip Open Pentagon Jr’s Mask: 118K views
  2. KM Isn’t Facing Fallah Bahh, He’s Facing SCOTT STEINER: 75K views
  3. Konan Returns to Confront King: 59K views
  4. KM vs Scott Steiner: 52K views
  5. Eddie Edwards Suffers a Psychotic Break Over Tommy Dreamer: 45K views
  6. Madison Rayne vs Taya Valykire: 43K views
  7. Z & E vs LAX: World Tag Team Championship: 42K views

After of the conclusion from the fight in the woods it seemed like the blood feud between Sami Callihan and Eddie Edwards was going to continue. Eddie blames Dreamer for allowing Callihan to escape.

Over the past few weeks it seems that oVe have found new targets in the form of former world champion Pentagon Jr. & Fantasma. This all began last week when Jake Christ faced off against Fantasma. This week Pentagon & Fantasma defeated oVe which lead to a post match brawl and Sami Callihan trying to rip the mask off. When looking at the numbers fans seem to like where this feud is going. I predict that the big pay off will either happen in the weeks to come or at Slammiversary.

When take a look at KM’s run so far with Impact you wouldn’t expect him to be sitting in the number two and four spots for this week’s report. Right now KM is being use in a comedy act with Fallah Bahh the only reason he is in the numbwr two and four spots is due to the bigger of Scott Steiner. Yes, I know shockingly Stiener is still somewhat of a draw in 2018.
