"Kazuchika Okada, I know you're stood there backstage waiting at the curtain and can hear me, you listen very closely to what I'm saying. You sure as hell better damn beat EVIL now as I'm far from satisfied holding just this belt. I beat you Okada, I finally beat you and I know I can do it again. After you beat EVIL tonight I challenge you to a final battle at King of Pro Wrestling. I'm not allowing you the privilege of main-eventing Wrestle Kingdom again and becoming the longest reigning IWGP Heavyweight champion ever. That should be me, that should be the Bullet Club.
