NJPW News & Notes: Jay White Joins CHAOS, Next Challenger For Okada Set, and More

New Japan Pro Wrestling held a press conference earlier today in the aftermath of yesterday’s New Years DASH Event.

During the press conference Kazuchika Okada announced “Switchblade” Jay White as the newest member of CHAOS. The announcement comes just one day after Jay White turned down Kenny Omega’s invitation to become a new member of The Bullet Club at New Years Dash. White says that he joined CHAOS because he needs help against the Bullet Club, after declaring his intention to challenge Omega for the IWGP US Championship.

Also during today’s press conference, Okada accepted Los Ingobernables de Japon member SANADA’s challenge to an IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match. However, Okada said that match will only happen if he and Hirooki Goto get an IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Title match against SANADA and EVIL.
