“Switchblade” Jay White does not appear to be a team player. This is likely the sentiment being expressed by his stablemates in CHAOS following a controversial social media post from the IWGP United States Champion.
CHAOS had a chance to leave Dominion with the IWGP Heavyweight, Junior Heavyweight, NEVER Openweight, Jr Heavyweight tag-team, and IWGP United States Championship gold over the weekend. In the end, however, White is the only member of the stable still carrying a title belt.
White referenced the recent losing skid from the stables’ champions in a Twitter post below:

“Switchblade” Jay White, IWGP United States Champion
In the above photo, only White still holds their title. Roppongi 3K lost their titles at the New Beginning in Sapporo but had a chance to win them back at Dominion. They were defeated in Osaka by the Suzuki-Gun team of El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru, however.
Hirooki Goto lost the NEVER Openweight Championship to Michael Elgin on Saturday in a triple threat match also involving Taichi. Will Ospreay lost his IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship on Saturday as well. He dropped his belt to the winner of the 2018 Best of the Super Juniors tournament, Hiromu Takahashi.
Finally, Kenny Omega defeated Kazuchika Okada of the IWGP Heavyweight title in Osaka.
Jay White and CHAOS
White joined CHAOS earlier this year after turning down an offer to join Bullet Club from Kenny Omega. White would then defeat Omega at the New Beginning in Sapporo to win the IWGP United States Championship. Despite joining his faction, however, White has said he wouldn’t mind facing Okada someday. He’s also chosen to come out separately from his teammates during ring entrances, something Kevin Kelly has noted on commentary.
It seems Jay White may have joined CHAOS for his own reasons. He doesn’t appear committed to the stable as much as he is to his own career. We could see White leave the faction in the not too distant future.
