The door is open for the "Switchblade" to return.

Jay White -- another NJPW star that popped up in Impact Wrestling this year -- is done with the promotion for now due to his schedule.

PWInsider first reported the news Friday.

White's schedule with NJPW in both Japan and the U.S. is preventing him from be a constant on Impact TV. The report made the comparison to JONAH who also recently wrapped up a short run in the company.

That leaves Chris Bey and The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson) as the only Bullet Club members left on the active roster. X-Division Champion Ace Austin was inducted at the Friday's Best of the Super Juniors show, but that has yet to be conveyed on Impact TV.

It's unclear what the creative plan is for all three with regards to the faction. Gallows and Anderson will challenge for the Impact Tag Team titles against The Briscoes at this month's Slammiversary.

White made his on-screen debut last July at Slammiversary, staring down then-World champion Kenny Omega after his title defense over Sami Callihan.

The former IWGP World Champion wrestled 16 matches for Impact over the last year, primarily in tag team or multi-man matches. He never challenged for a title in that time.

It's expected White will be part of this month's AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
