New Japan Pro Wrestling has released the full card for Battle in the Valley.

The card is highlighted by the New Japan debut of Mercedes Mone, who will challenge KAIRI for the IWGP Women’s Championship in Mone’s first match since leaving WWE.

This past weekend, an IWGP World Championship match between rivals Kazuchika Okada and Hiroshi Tanahashi was added to the show, as well. It will be their first meeting since September 2021 and the second time that the pairing has had a match in the U.S.

The two matches are listed as a double main event with Okada vs. Tanahashi listed last on the rundown on New Japan’s website.

The card will stream on FITE TV and as a separate pay-per-view on New Japan World on Saturday night at 11 p.m. ET from San Jose, California.
