After being defeated in a loser leaves Japan match against Hikuleo at The New Beginning in Osaka last week, the Switchblade lost a loser leaves NJPW match last night at Battle in the Valley against AEW star Eddie Kingston.

This match dropped the curtain on White’s NJPW career which began back in 2015 in the NJPW Dojo and then started back again in 2017 under his current Switchblade gimmick.
