NJPW is spending the weekend in the United Kingdom, but it will take some time for fans to see the action off the field. John Pollock of Post Wrestling is reporting that any nights of NJPW Royal Quest II will not be streamed live. Instead the two-night program from London’s Crystal Place National Sports Center will air on NJPWWorld later in October.
This is a change from the previous NJPW Royal Quest, which, like many of NJPW’s offerings in North America, airs on Fight TV. No reason is given for the lack of streaming options for the upcoming show, but the initial Royal Quest show was full of streaming issues.
Royal Quest II will have serious implications for the world of NJPW, as Jack Saber Jr. will face Tetsuya Naito in the main event of Night 2, with the winner earning a shot at Will Osprey’s IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship. Also, AEW’s Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood will defend their IWGP Tag Team Championships against United Empire’s Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher, who made their company debut at the first Royal Quest event in 2019. The show will mark NJPW’s first return to the United Kingdom. The first marks the start of a busy month for the Quest program, and promotions. NJPW is not only emigrating to the UK, but they will also return a week later to declare power in Japan, and are also heading to Hollywood and New York City for a North American-based taping of “NJPW Strong”.
