-Hiroshi Tanahashi came to the ring. He’s been gone most of this tour due to an elbow injury. He said his cast had just come off yesterday and was sad he couldn’t wrestle on this tour. He mentioned how this time last year he ended up winning the G1 and won the IWGP title at Wrestle Kingdom, but now he’s lost all of his momentum and is at his lowest. He confirmed that he will be back on June 5 at the Best of the Super Junior Finals and will look to reclaim the IWGP Heavyweight title again. Jay White entered the ring with Gedo. He said the line starts with him and Tanahashi deserves to be in the back of the line, even behind Goto. Gedo distracted Tanahashi, which allowed White to jump him and attack the elbow. White grabbed a chair and wrapped Tanahashi’s arm in the chair and looked to go for a one-man Con-chair-to, but was stopped. White told Tanahashi that he was next.
