Jon Moxley is off New Japan Pro Wrestling’s upcoming event in San Jose.
NJPW of America announced this evening that Moxley would be unable to participate at Battle in the Valley, which takes place on November 13. They have instead announced that Will Ospreay will be at the event. This may be due to AEW’s next event, Full Gear, taking place on the same date.
Additionally, the bell time for Battle in the Valley has been moved to 8 pm PT.
Full Gear originally was set to take place on November 6. However, a high profile UFC card featuring Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington, as well as a boxing match between Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant, are both scheduled to take place that weekend. AEW announced at All Out earlier this month that Full Gear would take place a week later instead. No venue or location has been announced.
Other stars announced for Battle of the Valley include Tomohiro Ishii, Jay White, and Filthy Tom Lawlor.
NJPW has tapings in October at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and in November at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium.
