It was an epic match that showed the world class standard of New Japan and saw Okada have to used an unprecedented three Rainmakers to finish off Shinsuke. Okada told AJ Styles he’s “next” but plans to wait until the 1/4/15 Tokyo Dome show (announced today) to cash in his title shot for AJ’s IWGP Heavyweight Title. He (and Gedo) also praised Shinsuke for a good fight and suggested they do it again in future.
* Hiroshi Tanahashi showed he is still a major player in the G1 3rd place match, pinning IWGP Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. AJ lost to Okada, Naito and Tanahashi in the tournament to show he isn’t unbeatable, but remains champion.
* New Japan signed a formal agreement to work with Jeff Jarrett’s new GFW promotion during the show. Then later on Jarrett revealed himself as a Bullet Club member after hitting Tanahashi with a guitar. Scott D’Amore also joined the Bullet Club, which continues to expand.
