Jay White is still considering his options and reportedly in talks with WWE.
The former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion is currently the biggest free agent in wrestling and has been talking with both promotions.
The top NJPW star finished up with the promotion after losing a ‘loser leaves Japan’ match to Hikuleo and then lost a ‘loser leaves NJPW’ match against Eddie Kingston.
While with NJPW, he became a Triple Crown Champion and the first-ever NJPW Grand Slam Champion.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that White has yet to sign a contract with either company, and his future is still unknown.
Meltzer wrote, “Regarding Jay White, we are told that White has been talking to WWE but has not signed. He is also talking to AEW. From someone familiar with the situation, they described it as 50/50 which side he would go with.”
Whichever promotion White signs with, he would be an excellent addition and give either promotion a new main event caliber star.
