"Switchblade" Jay White is heading back to Impact Wrestling.

The company announced today that the NJPW star will take part in their Friday, January 21 and Saturday, January 22 TV tapings in Pembroke Pines, Florida. No opponents have been announced as of yet.

White last appeared for Impact in July 2021, wrestling two tag matches. White teamed with Chris Bey in both bouts, losing to Juice Robinson and David Finlay, as well as Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows. Those matches aired on the July 29 and August 12 episodes of Impact on AXS TV.

White last wrestled on the December 9, 2021 NJPW Strong Nemesis tapings, defeating AEW's Christopher Daniels in a singles contest.

White is based in the United States and has primarily been wrestling on NJPW Strong during the COVID-19 pandemic, as he has not wrestled in Japan since May 2021.

An NJPW Grand Slam champion, White has held the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship, and most recently held the NEVER Openweight Championship, dropping that title to Tomohiro Ishii at NJPW Battle in the Valley in November 2021.
