Pro Wrestling NOAH has made a huge announcement this Sunday, June 18th: WWE Superstar AJ Styles is set to face the Japanese legend Naomichi Marufuji one-on-one at NOAH Destination 2024 on Saturday, July 13th.

It will be the first time AJ Styles will have a match for a Japanse company and outside of WWE since he made his debut for the biggest promotion in the world in January 2016. The event will take place at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan, and will be broadcast by Abema.

This announcement reveals the merger between WWE and Pro Wrestling NOAH and translates the will of Triple H and WWE to work with other companies in the future such as they have done with TNA in the past few weeks. Last year already, at NOAH The New Year 2023, WWE Superstar Shinsuke Nakamura wrestled Keiji Muto to be part of the farewell campaign of the Japanese legend.
