Jay White: The 'Forbidden Door' Is Not So Forbidden, We Need To Coin A New Term

Jay White has been all over the place since "The Forbidden Door" open during the pandemic.

White has made appearances for NJPW, IMPACT, and AEW, freely walking through the "forbidden door" at his own discretion.

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, White discussed the "forbidden door" and his appearances in various promotions.

"It's not so forbidden anymore. I feel like we need to coin a new term for it. I don't know if the door really suffices. I don't think there is anything too forbidden about it. Not just myself, there have been other guys. We can probably start to expect a lot more traffic through the not so forbidden door," he said.

When asked about his own schedule and staying in America even after the pandemic is over, White said, "It's been a rocky one, like it has been for everybody, you have to adapt for everything out of your control. For a lot of people, there feels like a light at the end of the tunnel. In terms of the travel, I feel that's going to get back to normal soon. As far as myself, I saw how things were going with New Japan in Japan and I saw the opportunities we had in the United States and the opportunities with what we could do with STRONG. I had to put my feet on the ground and say, 'I see the opportunities in the States with STRONG' and that's gone over to IMPACT and AEW, but it's all come from the belief that we could adapt to the circumstances with the pandemic and give extra attention with New Japan in the States. I think we've done a damn good job of that."

White made his AEW debut on the February 9 episode of AEW Dynamite and then wrestled on the February 18 episode of AEW Rampage, defeating Trent Beretta.

He is set to compete against Alex Shelley at IMPACT Sacrifice on Saturday. You can view the current lineup for the show by clicking here.
