NJPW returning to UK for Royal Quest


New Japan Pro Wrestling has started to hype up their return to the United Kingdom this August.

When NJPW's upcoming big show schedule was announced during Wrestle Kingdom 13, it was noted that there would be an event at the Copper Box Arena in London, England on Saturday, August 31. It's now been announced that the show will be named "NJPW Royal Quest."

Three top Japanese wrestlers will be announced for Royal Quest next week, along with ticket information. NJPW has a mailing list for pre-sale details.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said Kazuchika Okada will be one of the wrestlers on Royal Quest and it will be a "loaded show."

NJPW stated that more wrestlers and meet and greet information will be revealed over the coming months.

Royal Quest is taking place after this year's G1 Climax, which will begin at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, July 6 and conclude with three straight days at Budokan Hall in Tokyo from August 10-12.
