Chase Owens' last match for NJPW was on the Night 2 card of Wrestle Kingdom 16 in Tokyo Dome on January 5. Owens competed in a 4-way against Toru Yano, Minoru Suzuki, and CIMA for the vacant King Of Pro Wrestling 2022 provisional title. Suzuki won the match. Owens returned to the United States in early January.

Owens finished the tournament at the bottom of the B Block standings with four points. However, one of Owens' two wins in the G1 Climax came against Hiroshi Tanahashi. Owens' other win the G1 came against Taichi.


Last November and December, Chase Owens competed in New Japan's World Tag League, teaming with Bad Luck Fale. They finished the tournament with six wins and five losses. That was good enough for eighth place in the 12-team standings.
