After the match, TAKA Michinoku asks Sabre Jr. what’s next and he thinks about it for a moment before saying that he wants Okada. The match is now official for Sakura Genesis on April 1. Okada and Gedo make their way down to the ring and TAKA gives them his “YOU JUST TAP OUT” schtick but Gedo cuts him off and says that Sabre can’t tap Okada out because he’s on another level, and TAKA cuts him back off and takes the mic back to finish his hype man duties. The show comes to a close.
