As noted, at the NJPW G1 Climax Finals, KENTA joined Bullet Club after attacking Katsuyori Shibata, the man who brought him back to NJPW. Shibata attempted to make the save after KENTA turned on his tag partner YOSHI-HASHI and Tomohiro Ishii, landing a dropkick during his initial attack. This was the first time Shibata did anything physical on a NJPW show since suffering a subdural hematoma at NJPW Sakura Genesis in 2017. On Twitter, Will Ospreay tweeted out, “So out of curiosity how many of you guys cried when Shibata did his dropkick?” Tama Tonga (who was involved in the attack) retweeted the question, “And then how many of you guys cried when we beat his ass?”
