New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced the new performer who will be appearing at their ‘Royal Quest’ event in London. Suzuki-gun stable member Zack Sabre Jr will be heading to the Copper Box Arena in London, England on August 31st.
NJPW also recently announced that NEVER Openweight Champion Will Ospreay will be heading to the Copper Box Arena in London. Ospreay won the NEVER Openweight Championship at the Wrestle Kingdom show in January. The ‘Aerial Assassin’ defeated Kota Ibushi to claim the title and dethrone the Japanese star.
The company confirmed earlier this month that “Three” of their “top Japanese wrestlers have confirmed they will be on the card and they will be bringing New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s fighting spirit to the heart of the UK’s capital.” Those three stars were Kazuchika Okada, Tetsuya Naito and IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi.
NJPW aren’t strangers to the United Kingdom. They have held numerous events in conjuncture with other promotions. Most notably Revolution Pro Wrestling (RevPro) and Ring Of Honor (ROH). ‘Royal Quest’ will be their first major solo show in the UK.
