- Above is Ricochet's profile for the Best of the Super Juniors 24 tournament.
- On May 16, New Japan Pro Wrestling President, Takaaki Kidani, unveiled the company's plans both in Japan and the U.S. With projected sales of 4.5 billion Yen (roughly $45 million) in 2018, NJPW is looking to boost the company through a "Live, Digital, and Global Strategy."
In regards to the live strategy they want to sell 40,000+ tickets at the Tokyo Dome for their annual Wrestle Kingdom event by 2020, along with an increased house show attendance. Digital strategy involves a goal of 100,000 subscribers to NJPW World, which would make it Japan's biggest streaming service. They are currently at 50,000 with 10,000 of those outside of Japan. NJPW World was recently redesigned for easier navigation for their overseas fans and will be adding Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV as new ways to access the service. Global strategy includes the upcoming G1 Special, along with "a functioning US subsidiary next year, as well as a dojo based in America, and the IWGP US title announced at ROH's War of the Worlds event this past weekend."
