Jay White appears set for a one-way flight after being defeated in a ‘Loser leaves Japan’ match by Hikuleo.

White was pinned by Hikuleo during Saturday’s New Beginning in Osaka event.

The stipulation match was made at New Year Dash on January 5th amid speculation over White’s contract status with NJPW.

He is still scheduled to wrestle under the NJPW banner at Battle in the Valley, which takes place in San Jose, California on February 18th.

Just before taking a chokeslam for the pinfall, White gave Hikuleo the Bullet Club “too sweet” sign.

White’s ultimate destination is unclear, but there has reportedly been interest in his signing by both WWE and AEW.

Will Ospreay had some kind words for the departing star.
