The results have emerged for night 2 of NJPW Royal Quest II in London, England.

The second night of the tour, at The Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, was headed up by Tetsuya Naito vs. Zack Sabre Jr, with the winner becoming the number one contender for Will Ospreay’s IWGP US Championship.

Naito prevailed and will face Ospreay at a future date.

In the absence of JONAH, who could not travel due to Hurricane Ian, Tomohiro Ishii’s mystery opponent was revealed as Yota Tsuji.

Reports on social media from those in attendance on both nights have been glowing, but fans are still in the dark about when the event will be shown on NJPW World. The event was not available to watch live on any platform.

In clips that leaked on Twitter from night 1 on Saturday, Dax Harwood said after defeating Aussie Open in the main event:

This is the first time we have been overseas since 2019, and we thank you. Two things, first things first. Tony Khan, we still work for you. Book us, brother.

The second thing and most importantly, and seriously. I’ve said it on Twitter, these guys [Aussie Open] are the future of tag team wrestling. All egotism to the side, all self-preservation to the side, they may be the best tag team today.

FTR has not wrestled as a tag team under the AEW banner in a two-on-two match since May. They competed against The Briscoes at ROH Death Before Dishonor in July, and teamed with Wardlow to defeat Jay Lethal and the Motor City Machine Guns at AEW All Out on September 4th in a trios match.
