Okada won the G1 Climax 31, allowing him to challenge for the IWGP World Heavyweight Title at Wrestle Kingdom 16. He defeated Kota Ibushi in the finals when the bout was stopped due to injury. He is set to defend the G1 Climax briefcase against Tama Tonga at NJPW Power Struggle on November 6.
As previously announced, Buddy Matthews (formerly Buddy Murphy) will also be part of NJPW Battle in the Valley.
