Report: Jay White 'Very Laid Back' About His AEW Creative
Jay White is willing to go with the flow in AEW
Jay White is set to be a featured talent on the first episode of AEW Collision on Saturday, June 17 and Tony Khan has announced the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion will team with Juice Robinson and Samoa Joe to take on the returning CM Punk and FTR on the show.
According to reports, CM Punk had been pushing to work with Jay White and Bullet Club Gold and the two-time AEW World Champion was granted his wish. Jay White seemingly didn't have an issue with wrestling Punk, with Fightful Select reporting that Switchblade has been "very laid back" about his early creative in AEW.
White has been a part of AEW on a full-time basis since he returned to the promotion on the April 5 edition of AEW Dynamite and attacked Ricky Starks before his scheduled match with Juice Robinson. The Bang Bang Gang have been feuding with Starks ever since and White defeated his rival in the main event of the June 7 episode of Dynamite following interference from The Gunns.
Fightful Select further reported that BCG would be getting new members "imminently" but it was not revealed on Dynamite if The Gunns were those new members. There has been speculation that El Phantasmo could link back up with White and Robinson too.
