Recently, WWE and NOAH made a very important announcement, telling fans that AJ Styles will face Naomichi Marufuji at the NOAH Destination 2024 event on July 13, the same day that IYO SKY will face Utami Hayashishita at Marigold Summer Destiny.

WWE and NOAH had already teamed up when in late October 2022, it was announced on the official profiles of NOAH and also on the social profiles of the same Shinsuke Nakamura, that the wrestler currently under contract with WWE, would take a flight to Japan to fight against the legend The Great Muta.

This clash occurred on January 1, 2023 at NOAH The New Year 2023. But this is not enough for NOAH, as reported by Naomichi Marufuji himself to the microphones of Planeta Wrestling, since he is the Vice President in NOAH: "AJ Styles is a great fighter in all respects and one of the best in the world.

I want the fans to really enjoy our exchanges during our match, and I think we can get there. I am also interested in all WWE wrestlers. I want to invite several wrestlers to wrestle in the NOAH ring. As for me going to fight in WWE, I think I need to train more to do it, so for now I can’t say I want to do it."

WWE and NOAH collaborate a lot

Recently, WWE announced that it would continue its global expansion by announcing three dates in Japan that will take place on July 25, 26 and 27, 2024, with the first date being at Edion Arena Osaka, while the other two at Ryogoku Kokugikan.

Sponsored for the event are the following athletes: Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Asuka, IYO SKY, Kairi Sane, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Lashley. And after this collaboration, which has been made possible by Triple H management, has been a great success, it seems that WWE and NOAH are ready to take their partnership to the next level with the announcement on Sunday and through CyberFight, That’s a parent company of NOAH.

Yasuaki Okamoto, the new President of CyberFight Inc. during a press conference where he said that one of his goals is to: "Strengthen the relationship with WWE." In addition, Kenji Muto was again promoted to NOAH’s Scouting Advisor, after being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2023, a sign that perhaps something is really moving between the two sides.
