Jon Moxley will no longer be appearing at NJPW’s upcoming event in San Jose.
The promotion has announced that he wouldn’t be able to participate at Battle in the Valley, which takes place on November 13th. Now, Will Ospreay will be at the event.
This was done due to the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event being moved from November 6th to November 13th. Also, the NJPW show will now start at 11 pm ET.
The reason AEW moved Full Gear back by one week was due to the strong competition that they face that night. UFC 268 goes down on November 6th at the Madison Square Garden. It will feature a rematch between Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington. Also, Canelo Alvarez vs. Caleb Plant from the MGM Grand Garden Arena will take place on this date. Both events will air on pay-per-view.
Tomohiro Ishii, Jay White, and Filthy Tom Lawlor were also announced for this NJPW event.
Update for Battle in the Valley:
Bell time will now be 8pm PT on November 13th.
Unfortunately, Jon Moxley will no longer be participating.
However, we are excited to announce Will Ospreay will be there!
