WWE: Shawn Michaels set for London’s United Kingdom tournament show

WWE legend Shawn Michaels will appear at the company’s show at London’s Royal Albert Hall next month.

Michaels returns to the venue – where he appeared as an in-ring competitor at WWE’s first visit in 1991 – alongside Triple H for the show on Monday, June 18.

The card features the final of the United Kingdom tournament, for which the winner will receive an opportunity to challenge WWE United Kingdom champion Pete Dunne the following night inside the famous venue.

The Bruiserweight will also be in action on June 18, teaming with his Moustache Mountain colleagues Tyler Bate and Trent Seven to face NXT’s Undisputed ERA.

Currently a coach at the company’s Performance Center in Orlando, Michaels will share his experience with competitors from Great Britain, Ireland and beyond, having appeared at three of the five WWE live events held at the landmark arena to date.

Michaels and his Rockers tag team partner Marty Jannetty took on The Nasty Boys in the opening match of the Battle Royal at the Royal Albert Hall event, which was screened live in the UK on Sky Movies.

The 1991 event is symbolic for WWE fans in this country, as it marked the start of 27 consecutive years of live events there, a streak that continues to this day.
