During his post-show interview after the NJPW G1 Climax Finals, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega said his next challenger will be Tomohiro Ishii. During the G1 tournament Ishii defeated Omega and the champion wants to give him another shot down the road.

"Let's just settle Ishii, you want it? I'll do what I can to make it happen," Omega said. "When I come back, when I defend against you, Ishii, its not going to be a beaten, bloodied, broken down Kenny Omega versus a one-hundred percent nothing to lose, tubby, short, piece of lard, Ishii. This is going to be one-hundred percent best bout machine, tip top shape, champion Kenny Omega defending his belt against you. We will determine the date later."
