“Switchblade” Jay White, who will challenge Hiroshi Tanahashi for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 12 tonight, recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, and is none-too-pleased with the hype he feels his Title match has not received heading into tonight’s event.
“I’m not blind to it,” admitted White. “I understand why the other two matches have gotten more publicity. It’s the ‘G1 winner vs. The Rainmaker,’ as well as ‘Overrated vs Over the Hill.’
“I mean, I’m just a recently graduated ‘young boy’, right? What right do I have to be at the top of the card, let alone talked about? But as I said, I understand why, but we’ll just see what people are talking about at the end of the night.”
