Background[]

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) held the inaugural Battle of the Belts event on January 8, 2022. A one hour television special, each Battle of the Belts event exclusively features championship matches. The ninth Battle of the Belts event was announced to take place on January 13, 2024, at the Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Virginia, following that night's episode of Collision.

Storylines[]

On the January 10 episode of Dynamite, International Champion Orange Cassidy and Preston Vance competed on the same team in an eight man tag team match, which was won after Vance pinned Bishop Kaun. It was announced later in the week that Cassidy would defend the International Championship against Vance at Battle of the Belts IX.

Also on the January 10 episode of Dynamite, Anna Jay won an eight woman tag team match after submitting Skye Blue, an associate of TBS Champion Julia Hart. It was later announced that Hart would defend the TBS Championship against Jay at Battle of the Belts.

At Full Gear on November 18, 2023, Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega defeated The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) to earn an AEW World Tag Team Championship opportunity. However, it was later revealed that Omega had been sidelined with diverticulitis, preventing him and Jericho from challenging champions Ricky Starks and Big Bill at Worlds End. Jericho announced that he would face Starks and Bill at a later date with a new partner. Leading up to Worlds End, Sammy Guevara made his return, reuniting with Jericho before going on to pin Starks in an eight man tag team match at the event. On the January 6 episode of Collision, Starks and Bill challenged Jericho and Guevara to a Street Fight for the AEW World Tag Team Championship at Battle of the Belts IX, which was later made official.
