This will mark Anoa’i’s debut in Japan. He also currently competes in MLW and has worked multiple independent promotions over the years.

Additionally, Fightful reports that former MLW Heavyweight Champion Jacob Fatu is another name being considered for the N1 Victory Tournament. Fatu has not yet wrestled in Japan during his career. This looks to be part of MLW and NOAH’s promotional alliance that first began in 2019.
