After the main event, EVIL attacked Tetsuya Naito and tried to steal his spotlight and his moment of celebration, but SANADA made sure that did not happen by hitting the member of House Of Torture with a running knee. SANADA and Naito then showed their mutual respect, and the new IWGP World Heavyweight champion finally took the microphone to speak to the audience of the Tokyo Dome. Naito thanked everyone for coming and making this moment even more special for him. He mentioned Los Ingobernables de Japon through a celebration atmosphere in the middle of the ring to end the show.
