Jay White’s Last NJPW Match Will Be Against Eddie Kingston In US

Hamish Woodward

Jay White recently lost a loser leaves New Japan match to kick him out of the promotion, but not before he wrestles one last match for the company. However, due to the nature of the stipulation he was no longer allowed to perform in Japan, but that ban did not extend to the isles of the United States of America.

While he looks set to move to WWE or even AEW in the near future, Jay White still has one last match to take care of. His last match for NJPW is expected to take place at NJPW’s Battle in the Valley show, which is being broadcast from San Joe later this month.

Eddie Kingston vs Jay White looks set to be Switchblade’s final fight with New Japan. The AEW star challenged White to a match on a recent episode New Japan Strong, with White accepting what will be a dream match to fans of the two stars. Eddie Kingston came from nowhere in 2020 to become one of AEW’s most popular wrestlers and will be hoping to come out on top when he steps in the ring with one of the best wrestlers in the planet for his final match for NJPW.

The two have been feuding on NJPW Strong for months. The two last met at NJPW Rumble at 44th Street on October 28, where Jay White and Juice Robinson teamed together to defeat Kingston and Kazuchika Okada.

The show on February 18th, 2023 is already shaping up to be one of the shows of the year already. Kazuchika Okada will defend his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against old nemisis Hiroshi Tanahashi, whilst former WWE Mercedes Mone (FKA Sasha Banks) will take on KAIRI in a match for the IWGP Women’s Championship.
