WWE has confirmed via their official website that WWE Performance Center coach Shawn Michaels is set to return to London’s Albert Hall.

When WWE returns to the Royal Albert Hall on June 18, Michaels will be accompanying them. Michaels famously worked in the first WWE match to be held at the hall back in 1991.

Michaels and former 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.

The show was streamed in the U.K. on Sky Movies and is available at this time on-demand in its entirety on the WWE Network, for those of you interested in watching that.

Alongside Michaels, WWE’s Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Create and the force behind NXT, 205 Live and the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in Triple H will be there.

Triple H last appeared at the now 147-year-old venue back in October 1995 during the Full Metal Tour. This was also the most recent WWE event to be held in the building, which was opened back in 1871 by Queen Victoria. It is expected he will make an announcement on the division.

The tournament takes place on June 18, with the winner facing WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne the following night. That show will also include matches for numerous NXT Championships as well.
