As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels has been announced to appear at the upcoming WWE UK Title Tournament events at Royal Albert Hall in London, England on June 19th and 20th.
We also noted earlier today that HBK will be replacing WWE NXT GM William Regal at the events due to Regal dealing with a health issue stemming from before WrestleMania 34.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, another reason why HBK will be appearing at the events is that surprisingly, the events are not close to being sold out. The report adds the configuration for Royal Albert Hall could see a capacity of 3,500 seats, which given the hot UK fanbase and the promise of a WWE Network special, makes it surprising the events are not sold out as of this writing.
