New Japan Pro-Wrestling had given us a few big reasons to check out their show from San Jose, California next Saturday (Jan. 13). Now, they’ve laid out the whole card so you can decide if you want to spend your time and money on Battle in the Valley during a busy holiday week full of wrestling options.
Shortly after his first appearance via video at New Year Dash!!, Matt Riddle will make his in-ring debut for NJPW. The former WWE star won’t be following up on his challenge to company president Hiroshi Tanahashi just yet though, he’ll be facing TMDK’s Zack Sabre Jr. & Bad Dude Tito alongside a mystery partner. It was also made clear at New Year Dash!! that Sabre Jr. will be continuing his rivalry with Bryan Danielson in 2024, so...
While we can’t saw whether Danielson will be at Battle of the Valley, we knew Jon Moxley would be facing Shingo Takagi in a No DQ match. And now another AEW star is booked, as Eddie Kingston has accepted a challenge from Gabe Kidd. Kingston will put his Continental Crown on the line against the Bullet Club War Dog.
