Jay White vs. Tomohiro Ishii added to NJPW Battle in the Valley

A new NEVER Openweight title match has been added to Battle in the Valley.

Jay White vs, Tomohiro Ishii has been added to NJPW’s event in San Jose, which takes place on November 13. Ishii has agreed to the stipulation that if he loses, he can never challenge for the NEVER Openweight Championship again. He agreed to the new stipulation after Jay White cut a promo accepting the challenge Ishii had issued back in September. White said he would only accept it, however, if the stipulation was added.

White vs. Ishii is the first match announced for Battle in the Valley, NJPW’s next major event in America. G1 Climax 31 winner Kazuchika Okada, Strong Openweight Champion Tom Lawlor, David Finlay, Juice Robinson, Lio Rush, Fred Rosser, Hikuleo, Ren Narita, and Will Ospreay have also been announced for the show. 

Battle in the Valley will take place at the San Jose Civic Center.
