All Elite Wrestling’s resident “Chairman” Shawn Spears has expressed his interest in wrestling Bullet Club leader “Switchblade” Jay White.
Taking to Twitter, Spears provided a clear cut message of intent for “Switchblade,” writing:
“Hey Switchblade, We should wrestle sometime. Sincerely yours, The Chairman”
At the time of writing, White has not yet responded to Shawn Spears’ message. Given that he has been preoccupied with New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 14 event, however, that’s no surprise.
White’s Wrestle Kingdom Experience
White was unable to defend his IWGP Intercontinental Championship this past weekend. He competed in a losing effort against Los Ingobernables de Japon leader Tetsuya Naito during Night One of Wrestle Kingdom on Saturday.
He managed to defeat fellow Double Gold Dash contender Kota Ibushi, who failed in his attempts to become IWGP Heavyweight Champion against Kazuchika Okada, on Night Two. By the end of the weekend, it was Naito who would walk away as NJPW’s first-ever dual champion.
Spears’ most recent feud in AEW has been against “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela. They recently competed against each other on an episode of the promotion’s YouTube show, AEW Dark.
Spears came up short in the match, with Janela picking up the victory following a top rope elbow drop. After the match, the two shared a couple of White Claws in the ring, only for Janela to deliver a Stunner to Spears.
