The success of the pre-sale shows that the event is in high demand from fans, as it will be the first show held jointly by All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. KENTA has expressed interest in wrestling CM Punk on this show, while Will Ospreay publicly stated that he would like to wrestle Kenny Omega.
