Luke Gallows noted that it was "surreal" entering the arena they way they used to from the New Japan bus, but then getting off and seeing the WWE signs leading them through the hall. He added that seeing the WWE ring in the arena was like "deja vu" and "very surreal."
Anderson said that he gave Shinsuke Nakamura a hug in the hallway and asked if he was OK, and Nakamura simply replied, "strange."
"It's different, it's awesome, man," Anderson said of returning to the arena. "It's beautiful."
