In his post-match comments, Sabre Jr. expressed his frustration with the way that the New Japan Cup had gone, but he praised Oleg Boltin.

“Well, we’re in the opening match against Young Lions, so I’d say [the] tour is going great. Tour is going great. [Nicholls responded that it was all downhill from there.] Yeah, like some white water rafting, you just plummet to your death, don’t you? Career suicide right now. It’s fun being in with the young lions. When that man, when Oleg Boltin figures it all out, he’s terrifying. That’s future IWGP World Heavyweight Championship material. But I want to be the man that he’s chasing for that championship. Hopefully, there’s a bit of a gap. Take your time, and let me get the championship first," Sabre Jr said.

Sabre Jr. then reflects on their losses in recent months. Nicholls replied by saying that they had nowhere to go but up.
