KUSHIDA, Juice Robinson & Kota Ibushi def. Kenny Omega, Tama Tonga & Tanga Roa 83 B+
Post-match KUSHIDA questioned Kenny and asked him why he didn't defend his Intercontental Title at King of Pro Wrestling instead of messing about in an undercard tag wearing his house show tights at one of the biggest shows of the year. KUSHIDA questioned if Kenny still had the mindset of a champion that he used to see.

Kenny responded after the show and challenged KUSHIDA saying that nothing had changed and he was still the best in the world and wanted to shut the Junior up.
