After the show on 10/8, Kohei pinned Marufuji and set himself up as a potential candidate against the reigning champion Morishima, but Kohei decided to attack the champion’s title match against Jun Akiyama. Morishima did not take the attack lightly and said that he wants Kohei before the upcoming GLOBAL LEAGUE, and no less than a day later it has been signed to happen.
