~ Following the match, Sanada aware of the outcome via underhanded tactics asked KAI if he wanted to try again? KAI then said there is still unfinished business as a Junior Heavyweight. Definitely pointing towards a rematch against Omega for he belt. So this should be something to note that KAI may jump up to the Heavyweight ranks someday, as of all the current Juniors he sits on the line between both divisions.
~ KENSO then came out and through out the challenge for the World Tag belts with himself and Kaz Hayashi “Team Bitchitto!”.
~ After 3 Championship matches the belts still remain under outsider talent.

Though this is only the start of the year and he has 12 months to go to determine his top talent and bring the belts back home within the 40th Anniversary.
