New Japan Invades the U.K. at Royal Quest

Kazuchika Okada and Minoru Suzuki battle it out in London.

Growing in international appeal, New Japan Pro Wrestling has landed in the United Kingdom with an event that is suitable for the Queen, Royal Quest. The main event will pit Kazuchika Okada defending the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Suzuki-gun leader, Minoru Suzuki.

Minoru Suzuki wasn’t pleased he was not in this year’s G1 tournament. Making his point that “his summer is about to begin”, he pinned Okada in tag action on the tournament’s last night and soon after proclaimed that the IWGP Heavyweight Title is his. After over twenty years in the business, the diabolical veteran may finally be the closest he has ever been to capturing the most prestigious prize in all of New Japan, especially taking into account that Okada has looked up at the arena lights in his last two matches.

Will the Rainmaker have enough in the tank following the aftermath of the exhausting G1 tournament? Or will this finally be Suzuki’s moment in the sun? Jump in the ring with us THIS SATURDAY NIGHT 9/8c to see who, at the end of the night, will have a jolly good time.
