Naito became the first person to hold both titles simultaneously when he won the Double Gold Dash at Wrestle Kingdom in January. He then dropped both belts to EVIL at Dominion but recaptured them at Summer Struggle in Jingu, becoming the first person to hold both titles at the same time on two separate occasions.
