Jay White vs. Eddie Kingston Set For NJPW Battle In The Valley
Jay White and Eddie Kingston will meet at NJPW’s Battle in the Valley event next month in San Jose.
On the episode of NJPW Strong that aired Saturday night, the two got into a confrontation, with Kingston challenging White to a match at Battle in the Valley on February 18. White eventually accepted, telling Kingston it was about time that he proved how insignificant Kingston actually was.
The two have been feuding on NJPW Strong for months. The two last met at NJPW Rumble at 44th Street on October 28, where Jay White and Juice Robinson teamed together to defeat Kingston and Kazuchika Okada.
Another match, Homicide vs. Tom Lawlor, was also made on the show. The match will be held under “Filthy Rules”, meaning that there will be no ring ropes and no rules.
