Twitter reacts to Jay White’s IWGP Heavyweight Championship win

Jay White made history on Monday when he defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

White used his signature Blade Runner to beat Tanahashi in the main event of The New Beginning in Osaka, which aired live on NJPW World from Edion Arena.

White’s win makes him the fourth-youngest IWGP Heavyweight Champion in history, and the first New Zealander to hold a world title since Pat O’Connor’s NWA World Heavyweight Championship win in 1959.
