New Japan Pro-Wrestling has announced dates and a location for the promotion’s UK return later this year.
NJPW will return to London for Royal Quest II, which will take place across two days, on October 1 and 2.
The first Royal Quest UK show took place in August 2019. Royal Quest II will be the promotion’s first event since then.
NJPW shared the following on its website:
In the three years since NJPW hit the Copper Box for Royal Quest in August 2019, New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s return to the UK has been one of the most common requests among fans.
New Japan Pro-Wrestling is excited to announce that Royal Quest II will see NJPW finally make its UK return, across TWO DAYS in London October 1 & 2. The Indoor Arena at Crystal Palace’s National Sports Center in London will play host to the best of NJPW’s worldwide talent, and we hope to welcome the best fans in the world!
