Following the attack, Zack Sabre Jr. announced that he would be cashing in his rematch clause for the RevPro Undisputed British Heavyweight Title at Wrestle Kingdom 13.

IWGP Heavyweight And Intercontinental Titles Unified By NJPW To Create IWGP World Heavyweight Title

Ishii defeated ZSJ at RevPro WrestleCon 2018 on April 6, 2018. Ishii lost the title to Minoru Suzuki in July, but regained the belt in October. Sabre Jr defeated Ishii during the G1 Climax over the summer.
