Following the match The Elite side of Bullet Club joined Omega and Ibushi in the ring. Omega went on to speak to the crowd and then spoke to Kota man to man. Omega stated that he and Ibushi were going to have their singles match at 'King Of Pro Wrestling' on October 8th but quickly making his way to the ring as Kenny said that to Ibushi was Cody who won the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Championship in the match prior to the main event. Instead of Kenny Omega versus Kota Ibushi, Cody proposed that the main event of 'King Of Pro Wrestling' should be Kota Ibushi versus Cody versus Kenny Omega for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. The champion gladly accepted the match and although it has yet to be made official by New Japan Pro Wrestling, Kenny Omega is green on defending the title in a Three-Way come October 8th.
