‘Switchblade’ Jay White officially signs with All Elite Wrestling.
White appeared tonight on AEW Dynamite after Ricky Starks made his way to the ring for the opening segment. White’s music played in the arena and then he and Juice Robinson made their attack.
Shortly after that happened, AEW President Tony Khan announced on Twitter that White has signed with the company. There had been speculation for weeks about whether White would sign with WWE or AEW but earlier this week PWInsider confirmed that he would likely not be heading to WWE.
