"Mr. Jericho, how are you?" Naito asked. "One again, I looked back into what you've done. You didn't show up at the first press conference for Tokyo Dome, that made me think you were so reluctant to do a rematch with me. And then you show up at the latest press conference and attacked me at Korakuen Hall on the same day. The way you have gradually hyped it and got attention, you are truly professional. You, a self-proclaimed superstar, Mr. Chris Jericho, even said you would retire me at Wrestle Kingdom 13 in Tokyo Dome. That's a big statement, but I'm tenacious like a fly which you like. Anyway, while I'm looking forward to my match with you at the Tokyo Dome. I have just one thing that I want to remind you of. Please don't wear that lame make-up because it's going to be the last match of your career. Mr. Jericho, adios!"
