On his way to the tournament finals, El Phantasmo defeated Lio Rush in the quarterfinals and then Blake Christian in the semifinals. Before the finals even started, El Phantasmo attacked ACH from behind and threw the Super J-Cup trophy at ACH.
After the match, El Phantasmo further broke the trophy and threw away the golden jacket that is awarded to the Super J-Cup winner. He took the microphone and called out Hiromu Takahashi, who won NJPW's Best Of The Super Jr. tournament on December 11. El Phantasmo said he'll see Takahashi at Wrestle Kingdom, answering Takahashi's call after his tournament victory regarding facing the winner of the Super J-Cup before moving on to face IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Taiji Ishimori.
Takahashi took notice of El Phantasmo's win and post-match comments on Twitter. Takahashi noted that he will see El Phantasmo soon.
