The British J Cup is a tournament held by Revolution Pro Wrestling, inconjunction with New Japan Pro Wrestling to showcase Jr Heavyweight wrestlers from around the world. This is the third installment of the British J Cup, with previous winners being Jyushin Thunder Liger in 2017 and El Phantasmo in 2018.
Two names have been announced for this year’s tournament so far, Robbie Eagles and Amazing Red.
Amazing Red is an American wrestler that is known for innovating the high flying style of professional wrestling, inspiring wrestlers such as Will Ospreay and many others. Red hung up his boots earlier this year but after an amazing match with Will Ospreay, and some very kind post match comments from the Aerial Assassin, Red will be attempting to complete a personal hit list of matches he wants before he retires for good.
Recently NJPW held the Super J Cup 2019 in the United States where Amazing Red made his official New Japan debut, losing to Will Ospreay in a first round match that was critically acclaimed worldwide.
Robbie Eagles is an Australian wrestler that has a history with Will Ospreay before he made it to New Japan. When Eagles joined NJPW he turned his back on Ospreay to join the Bullet Club, but after some altercations with his stablemates, Eagles left the Bullet Club to join Chaos. While in Chaos, Eagles teamed with Ospreay to challenge for the IWGP Jr Tag titles against former stable, Bullet Club. Amazing Red has stated that he would like to work against Robbie Eagles and I expect to see them against each other in round 1.
General sale starts Wednesday, September 25th at 7pm(BST).
