Jay White Reflects On 'Agitated' Forbidden Door Press Conference Appearance

Jay White was noticeably fired up during the Forbidden Door press conference

If you’ve ever seen a Jay White NJPW press conference then you’ll know ‘The Switchblade’ usually comes out all guns blazing, sharing his frustrations on the mic - from a mostly kayfabe point of view.

After successfully defending his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, Switchblade gave one of his usual snarky agitated statements, but caught many off guard who believed White had legit grievances. White has since reflected on his press conference performance, saying the following to NBC Sports Boston:

"Some of it is by design and a lot of it is maybe without me realising it," said White. "For example, after Forbidden Door, we had the post-show press conference and for some reason, people were taken aback by how I was, or surprised, where if you had seen a second of me talking after matches, you would know what to expect. It's different to a lot of people, especially over in the states, that are maybe used to the wrestling they see on TV, which can be a lot more performed where this platform that I have through New Japan, I have a bit more freedom with stuff to say and do whatever I want. People can buy into that and enjoy it a bit more.”
