For me, I wouldn’t rule out White going to the finals. Many have picked Ibushi to win (I have as well) and what better way to get a big babyface win then beat the main heel. However, it likely wouldn’t result in the G1 final classics that we are used to. I could see Ibushi beating Okada, that way you tell the story that Ibushi is truly ready for the title by beating the champ on the last day and the former & longest reigning champ who has returned to form.
