Doc Gallows Comments On Jay White's IMPACT Slammiversary Appearance
White appeared at the end of the July 17 pay-per-view
To the surprise of everyone inside Skyway Studios, New Japan Pro-Wrestling's Jay White entered the IMPACT Zone to close out Slammiversary on July 17 and stood across from Elite members Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers as the pay-per-view went off the air.
The Elite would throw up the 'too sweet' for White, but Switchblade wouldn't get the chance to respond before FinJuice hit the ring. White would then sneak back into the squared circle and deck David Finlay with a Blade Runner to end the segment.
While White is scheduled to wrestle at NJPW's USA pay-per-view 'Resurgence' on August 14, no one expected him to show up at Slammiversary and he received a big reaction from those in attendance.
Doc Gallows reflected on the moment during an appearance on the Battleground Podcast and he admitted White coming out gave him goosebumps.
"You have to keep it a surprise because it's not an organic reaction if it's not. Even as a performer, I'd rather be surprised by something like that because then you're going to get an organic reaction from us. As performers, it's like you guys as fans, it's the same energy. I got goosebumps when the music hit. The place exploded, the graphic changes, that's what pro wrestling is. Whether you're a fan, a talent, an office guy in the back, we all live for that pop and that excitement," said Gallows.
Following the pay-per-view, White was in action at IMPACT's TV tapings and he recruited Chris Bey to Bullet Club. The two men teamed together against The Good Brothers on the July 29 edition of IMPACT.
