During the match Omega & the Bucks wore new shirts with the logo of The Elite on them with new gear rather than the old Bullet Club gear. The quartet stayed in the ring after the match as Kenny took a microphone.

Kenny talked about how the Bullet Club has become lost in recent memory simply floating along in the world without any real purpose or aim and today he was going to change that. Kenny said the Bullet Club is dead and the four men in the ring today plus one last surprise will move forward known as The Elite of professional wrestling. Kenny's last request was for BONE SOLDIER to come out from the back and he did. Boner strolled down to the ring in jeans and a hoodie with the logo of the Elite on the back. He entered the ring and shook hands with Kenny in one hand while he removed his mask with the other.

BONE SOLDIER was revealed to be Bryan Danielson making his first appearance in a New Japan ring since 2004. The crowd errupted as Bryan took the mic. He said that he is here to prove that he is still the best in the world and working alongside Kenny Omega is the best way to do that as they push each other to better themselves.
