After the match Gedo walked to the back as the bell rang instead of helping the Rainmaker get back to his feet. Fale, being congratulated by his Bullet Club stable mates, celebrated their victory walking to the entrance way while Okada was lay on his back in the center of the ring staring at the ceiling of Korakuen Hall as the crowd sat there stunned in near silence outside of the odd female in the back screaming his name distraught at seeing their hero fall once again.

After several minutes, Hiroshi Tanahashi of all people, casually walked down to the ring in his entrance gear prepared for his main event match up next as the sold out Korakuen crowd let out an audible gasp and a polite, shocked clap. Tanahashi entered the ring and stood over Okada sticking out his hand to pick him up. The two men stood up but were attacked from behind either side by KENTA & Naomichi Marufuji. KENTA attacked Okada and they brawled until being seperated by referees and young lions while Red Shoes officially got the main event underway.
