"In my opinion, there are some wrestlers who were unable to come (to the U.S.) at the last minute. There are still wrestlers and matches I would like to see. I would like to see a continuation of this event," Ohbari told Tokyo Sports. "I think there is a need to see this event in Japan. The 50th anniversary year is a good opportunity to make it happen. I think there are some (AEW wrestlers) who would like to compete in front of Japanese fans."

NJPW is celebrating its 50 Year Anniversary in 2022. Lance Archer is set to represent AEW in the upcoming G1 Climax Tournament.
