A couple days after New Year Dash, a short video was uploaded onto njpwworld of WHIRO, or Jay White, talking.
One of the first things Jay said was that he no longer wanted to use the name that Naito assigned to him when joined Los Ingobernables last year, he said that he is his own man and he's Jay f'n White.
Next he went onto Tanahashi berating him saying that while his head may believe he's still the at the top of the mountain his body says otherwise and Wrestle Kingdom proved that he's simply not good enough to be the ace anymore.
As for Naito he said that he respected him but he holds back those around him to keep himself positioned as the top dog in NJPW by surrounded himself with those who are happy to be number 2 but he wasn't and that's why he is stepping out to prove that he is better than him and at New Beginning in Osaka he will prove that by becoming the new IWGP Heavyweight Champion.
Jay White then finished the interview by saying that he's surrounded himself with 5 men with a common objective as him, to be the champion, and that when he holds the belt he will grant them a title shot if they deserve it.
"It's time for the New Generation to take over."
