Both WWE and AEW are reportedly interested in signing White. The former IWGP Heavyweight Champion previously confirmed that WWE had reached out to him with a potential deal. Any word on White potentially signing with WWE is being kept a well-guarded secret.

White has achieved many accolades during his time in NJPW, including becoming the IWGP Heavyweight ChampionWorld Heavyweight Champion, Never Openweight Champion, IC Champion, and IWGP United States Champion.
