NJPW of America has announced three events for the first quarter of 2022.

During tonight’s Battle in the Valley event in San Jose, the company announced three USA dates: a January 15 date in Seattle at Washington Hall, February 17 at The Vermont Hollywood in Los Angeles, California, and a March 20 date at The Coliseum in Tampa, Florida.

The company announced a return to live events in August after spending most of 2021 taping in front of no crowds due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their first major show, Resurgence, took place on August 14 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. They have since held tapings in Garland, Texas and most recently at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

Tonight’s show in San Jose featured NJPW talent including Kazuchika Okada and Tomohiro Ishii. Okada faced Buddy Matthews, while Ishii is set to challenge Jay White in the main event for the NEVER Openweight title.

NJPW USA finishes off their year with tapings on November 15 at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium in Riverside, California.
