FTR To Defend IWGP Tag Team Championship at NJPW Royal Quest II

FTR Defends IWGP Tag Team Titles at NJPW Royal Quest II

The first match has been announced for NJPW Royal Quest II. New Japan Pro-Wrestling announced that FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) would defend the IWGP Tag Team Championship against Aussie Open (Mark Davis & Kyle Fletcher) at NJPW Royal Quest II on October 1.

The two-night event is held at The Indoor Arena at Crystal Palace’s National Sports Center on Saturday, October 1, and Sunday, October 2.

FTR won the IWGP Tag Team titles at AEW & NJPW’s Forbidden Door pay-per-view this June, defeating Jeff Cobb & The Great-O-Khan and Rocky Romero & Trent Beretta in a triple threat match where both the IWGP tag team titles and ROH tag team titles were on the line.

Aussie Open teamed with TJP to defeat FTR & Alex Zayne in a six-man tag match at NJPW Music City Mayhem this July. After the match, Aussie Open challenged FTR for an IWGP Tag Team Championship title bout.

NJPW posted a video of a promo from FTR to make that match official:

Aussie Open is NJPW’s Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions. They recently teamed with Will Ospreay in AEW’s Trios title tournament, losing to Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks in the semifinals.

This will be the first NJPW event in the United Kingdom since 2019. Here is the current lineup for the upcoming event:

NJPW Royal Quest II (10/1/22)
