- Above, Flip Gordon talked briefly about being in Ring of Honor for just under two years and although he's wrestled in some cool places, he's now headed to a sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6.
- After today's G1 Climax Finals, Kazuchika Okada announced after six-and-half years Gedo would no longer be by his side during his matches, but they still may tag from time to time. Gedo jokingly asked Okada if he was quitting CHAOS, which Okada replied, "No, no."
Okada (2/3): My answer is that I will be all by myself without Gedo from now on. He worked as my manager for six-and-half years, but we are going to break up for our positive futures. I'm smiling, not because I'm happy, because this is kind of sad. #g128 pic.twitter.com/my1SSNMyvh— Justin Barrasso (@JustinBarrasso) August 12, 2018
Okada (3/3): But it's a positive decision. We'll stay as Chaos, we might tag, but he is no longer my manager.— Justin Barrasso (@JustinBarrasso) August 12, 2018
Gedo: Everybody knows that Rainmaker doesn't need me anymore. I will be staying behind the stage to support Okada. You're not going to quit Chaos, right?
Okada: No, no. pic.twitter.com/nwtZa2fHV4
- During his post-show interview after the NJPW G1 Climax Finals, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega said his next challenger will be Tomohiro Ishii. During the G1 tournament Ishii defeated Omega and the champion wants to give him another shot down the road.
"Let's just settle Ishii, you want it? I'll do what I can to make it happen," Omega said. "When I come back, when I defend against you, Ishii, its not going to be a beaten, bloodied, broken down Kenny Omega versus a one-hundred percent nothing to lose, tubby, short, piece of lard, Ishii. This is going to be one-hundred percent best bout machine, tip top shape, champion Kenny Omega defending his belt against you. We will determine the date later."
