2024 edition will be the third Battle in the Valley event. The event in the series took place in November 2021 before a return in February 2023. Both these events took place at the same venue in San Jose.
The 2023 NJPW Battle in the Valley took place on February 18, 2023, the main event was for the IWGP World Heavyweight championship where Kazuchika Okada defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi. The co-main event was set for the IWGP Women’s Championship where Mercedes Moné defeated Kairi.
As of now, there are no advertised superstars for NJPW Battle in the Valley 2024, so it’s uncertain which wrestlers will be participating in the event. Recently NJPW also announced NJPW Royal Quest III event which is scheduled for Thursday, October 14, 2023.
