Naito, who was attempting to leave after defeating Kenoh in the main event, got back in the ring and said he would clear his schedule. In a backstage promo, Naito said he is not the same person that Muto faced in 2012.

Naito and Muto faced each other at Wrestle Kingdom VI in 2012 with Muto picking up the victory. Naito was also part of Muto's last NJPW match at Wrestle Kingdom 17, teaming with BUSHI & SANADA in a loss to Muto, Shota Umino, & Hiroshi Tanhashi.

While Muto will have his last match on February 21, Muto's alter ego The Great Muta will have his last match on January 22 when he teams with Sting & Darby Allin to take on Hakushi, AKIRA, & Naomichi Marufuji.
