NJPW has announced that the company will be returning to the UK this autumn for a huge two-day event as they present Royal Quest II.
New Japan Pro Wrestling has not held a show in the United Kingdom since August 2019 when they presented the first Royal Quest show from the Copper Box Arena in London, England. At that show, fans were treated to a main event where Kazuchika Okada defeated Minoru Suzuki to retain his IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
Hometown star Zack Sabre Jr. was not so lucky as he lost his British Heavyweight Championship to New Japan’s ‘Ace’ Hiroshi Tanahashi.
Taking to social media, NJPW announced that the company will be returning to England’s capital on the 1st and 2nd of October with two shows taking place inside the Crystal Palace Indoor Arena.
The Quest continues… over TWO DAYS!
