Jun was named the new opponent for Nakajima on February 11th.

It didn’t take long for Nakajima to find out who would his next challenger will be following his victory over Saito. The blue chip prospect Yuma Anzai made his way to the ring to confront the champion and asked for a title opportunity.. The two stars engaged in a verbal battle that lasted a few minutes before Nakajima departed with his championship belt in tow. Left alone in the ring, Anzai addressed the crowd at Korakuen and promised to win the Triple Crown Title back for AJPW.
