Jay White Appears At NJPW Wrestling Dontaku, Attacks Kazuchika Okada

Jay White back in Japan!

The Good Brothers weren't Bullet Club's only big return at today's Wrestling Dontaku show. 

Following Kazuchika Okada's successful defence of the IWGP World Heavyweight Title against Tetsuya Naito, Jay White suddenly made his way to the squared circle, appearing on an NJPW show in Japan for the first time in a year. 

The Catalyst of Professional Wrestling went to speak but Okada knocked the microphone out of his former faction mate's hand. Okada was then attacked from behind by Gedo, though, and Bullet Club, including new member Juice Robinson, flooded the squared circle to lay out The Rainmaker. 

White, with microphone in hand, then announced he would be the next IWGP World Heavyweight Champion before Bullet Club sang happy birthday for their faction, nine years on from the stable's formation. A Bladerunner then left Okada down and out, with Bullet Club posing for a photo over the fallen IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. 

While he had not appeared in Japan for over a year, White has remained active, performing on the promotion's United States shows as well as in IMPACT Wrestling and AEW, cementing himself as Bullet Club's leader during his time in the west. 

When White will challenge Okada for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship has yet to be revealed but NJPW's next major show is Dominion on June 12.
