Jay White was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated. During the discussion, he talked about the G1 Climax Tournament, his support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and which NBA players he would put in the Bullet Club.
Below are some highlights.
Jay White Jay White says the G1 Climax remind him that wrestling needs him:
I’ve never dreamed of winning; I just plan to each year that I’m in it. So I’ve planned to since my first G1 in 2018, and my earliest memory of it was being ringside as a Young Boy in 2015 and the timing does slightly feel strange, seeing as there’s going to be much less time between the end of the G1 and Wrestle Kingdom, but not in terms of it not being in the summer. It’s actually a lot better as it’s not nearly as hot as it usually is. Another thing that’s better this year is that we only have the singles matches, which makes it less taxing on the body, instead of having to do tag matches in between the singles. This year, we have the time off to recover.
It has served as a reminder of how much wrestling has missed me, and how bad it so desperately needs me. People may want to open their eyes and realize that before it’s too late, because you never know when I may just up and walk away.
Jay White which NBA players he would put in the Bullet Club:
My five? LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Jimmy Butler, Damian Lillard, and CP3.
Jay White on his support of the Black Lives Matter movement:
Me letting people know I care isn’t the important part, doing the right thing is. The idea came from simply feeling the need to do something to help, no matter how small it is, and the need to do what’s right. It’s not complicated—Black lives matter, and the fact that people try to argue that just shows you the injustice and racial issues that we are surrounded by today. That statement, Black lives matter, can’t and should never be argued.
