- NJPW posted the second part of their interview with Kota Ibushi, focusing on his matches with Hiroshi Tanahashi and Tetsuya Naito. About Naito, Ibushi mentioned how much his in-ring mentality has changed over the years.

"Yeah, absolutely. Before, Naito was almost submissive," Ibushi said. "He'd let you dictate the pace, so I'd always feel that 'If he does x, I can do y and win.' Then I felt like I could have some fun and still win. I had more in the tank than him. [In our G1 match] completely opposite. I went into that match, into the G1 after that time off and I was worried about how it would go. I was worried about starting off on the right foot. It was me who lacked confidence."
