After the match Goto quickly rolled out the ring and while grabbing his title from the commentary table he spat at Nakamura who became enraged and jumped over the guardrail but the young lions managed to hold him back for just long enough for Goto to scurry away down to safety. As Nakamura ran down the entrance ramp after his former friend and tag partner he was met by Kenny Omega & Jeff Cobb who attacked him. Cobb continued to attack Nakamura and hit him with Tour of the Islands while Omega taunted the crowd. Eventually Ospreay came to the aid of Nakamura and helped him up as they walked backstage propping each other up.

As Red Shoes finished the three count the colour in Jay White's face drained as he almost couldn't quite believe that he'd just beaten the IWGP champion clean as he was swarmed by his NEWGEN stablemates congratulating him. The show ended as Jay promised the fans that today was day 1 of the new generation of NJPW.
