NJPW continues to load up the card for its upcoming pay-per-view, Battle in the Valley, and now it will feature a fan-favorite star.
On Saturday’s NJPW Strong, AEW star Eddie Kingston issued a major challenge to NJPW’s Jay White for an upcoming match, which White accepted. Now, they will battle it out in a singles match.
Kingston is still feuding with House of Black on AEW television as he continues to rift with good friend Ortiz.
White is set to compete in a ‘Loser leaves Japan’ match in February for NJPW. As previously reported, White’s NJPW deal is slated to expire soon, and he has interest from both AEW and WWE.
