Genichiro Tenryu held a press conference to formally announce that Kazuchika Okada will indeed be his final opponent when he officially retires on November 15.

Tenryu stated that his reasons for this match is that Okada has won the Tokyo Sports Grand Prize MVP award for a consecutive year. Something that only a few wrestlers have ever achieved in Antonio Inoki, Jumbo Tsuruta, and Tenryu himself. Tenryu of course being the only active competitor left with that right saw this is as opportunity to officially close an era while in the current one. Tenryu aims to fully showcase the Showa era of professional wrestling one last time.

The conference also featured other wrestlers who will be featured on the show. Suwama (AJPW), Great Kojika (BJW), Yoshinari Ogawa (NOAH), Ricky Fuji (K-DOJO), Sanshiro Takagi (DDT), Kenichiro Arai (DG), Takashi Sasaki (FREEDOMS), KAI (W-1), Arashi, Kouki Kitahara, Buki, and Dragon JOKER (all from Tenryu Project).
