A new report has claimed Jay White isn’t happy with his recent outing against MJF.
At Full Gear, MJF put the AEW World Championship on the line against Jay White. The Match was Switchblade’s shot at the gold since moving to AEW full-time back in April.
However, it seems he wasn’t too impressed with how everything played out. The build-up to the match heavily revolved around Adam Cole and his broken ankle, while MJF and mystery partner Samoa Joe defended his ROH Tag Team Titles against Bullet Club Gold members The Gunns on the Full Gear pre-show.
Although Joe and MJF grabbed the win, The Gunns attacked Friedman with a chair after the match, sending him away in an ambulance. With MJF seemingly out of the picture, Cole stepped up to face White in the main event, despite still being on crutches.
Incredibly, MJF drove the ambulance back to the arena and wrestled the match against White as planned despite his injuries.
The pair went back and forth for the best part of 30 minutes, but in the end, it was MJF who emerged with the win, fighting through outside interference, a shot with the title belt, and his existing injuries.
The match split fans online with some believing MJF overcoming everything and every one, on his own would damage White’s standing in the promotion.
Writing on PWTorch.com, veteran journalist Wade Keller noted he’s heard White “wasn’t thrilled” with the build-up or the match itself.
“White wasn’t thrilled, based on what I’ve been told, how things went with the build and the match against MJF, so he might be motivated to shine in this tournament. He’s still among the top choices for Tony Khan to build around as a top-top star in his company for years to come.”
Jay White Chasing Glory In AEW Continental Classic
Wade Keller’s comments come after Jay White started his bid to win the Continental Classic. White wrestled his first match in the round-robin tournament against Rush on the November 22nd episode of Dynamite, picking up the win.
White is part of the Gold League, along with Rush, Jay Lethal, Jon Moxley, Mark Briscoe, and Swerve Strickland.
