IWGP UK Championship match set for October 14
Immediately following his stunning main event with Yorta Tsuji on September 24 at Destruction in Kobe, Will Ospreay had little time to relax as he was confronted by Zack Sabre Jr., who had Royal Quest III in the Copper Box on October 14 on the mind.
The familiar foes would exchange comments in Japanese as Sabre acknowledged Ospreay’s ability but stated that he wanted the IWGP UK Championship. Conversation as to the where’s and when’s was a bit above Ospreay’s language level, but as the two switched to English, Sabre clarified that he wanted the bout October 14 at Royal Quest.
After a tentative handshake, Ospreay playfully knocked the NJPW World TV Championship from Zack’s waist, only to tease a Hidden Blade as Sabre went to retrieve it. Reacting fast, ZSJ went for a Zack Driver, Ospreay countering to his feet. As the Aerial Assassin continues an incredible run of match of the year candidates deep into the autumn months, it seems like Royal Quest III has gained an incredible main event with an old enemy October 14.
