The finish saw SANADA fend off Taichi with skull end before hitting a moonsault press onto the legal ZSJ. Naito, also the legal man for his team, would finish off ZSJ with the Destino for the victory and the championships.

LIJ now has control of the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Titles and IWGP World Heavyweight Title as Shingo Takagi holds the latter.

This marks the first reign as Naito & SANADA as IWGP Tag Team Champions. Naito previously held the titles with Yujiro Takahashi in 2010 while SANADA is a two-time IWGP Tag Team Champion alongside EVIL. Dangerous Tekkers won the titles at NJPW Road To Dominion 2021 by defeating Guerrillas Of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa). They did not manage a successful title defense.
