"I’m the best person who represents New Japan Pro-Wrestling to the world. I deserve to be the first-ever Japanese IWGP United States Champion. Moxley, it took you a long time to show up, I’ve been defending that damn briefcase for months. It got broken once, too! But finally, finally our time has come. We’ll finally fight for the IWGP US Heavyweight Title that you’ve been letting rot all this time."
