Post-match Kenny Omega shocked the audience by making his way down to the ring. Kenny picked up the mic from the ring announcer and slid under the bottom rope.
Fine win Kota, you looked extremely impressive. Listen, I'm not here to challenge you to a match for your title, as great as that would be to steal the show with you at the Tokyo Dome I have another proposal for you, one that I feel would be wise for you to accept. Kota, remember the good old days? Remember when we ruled the wrestling world together? Have you ever caught yourself day dreaming thinking of how great it would be to try and re-capture that magic even if just for a short period of time? My proposal is a simple plan, forget the Bullet Club, forget the Elite and forget Taguchi Japan or whatever faction wants to try get in the way. We can win this tag league together Kota, look at how powerful we have become as singles competitors, let's put our minds together and take all of the gold in this company.
Kenny reaches out his hand for a handshake but it gets refused by Ibushi who instead reaches in and hugs Omega.
