Kenny Omega def. Tomohiro Ishii to become the first IWGP U.S. Champion

Match Notes: This match was an absolute corker! A Bullet Club split was teased when Cody came in and snatched the belt from Kenny before hugging him and putting it around his waist. Kenny Omega gave a shoot promo in the ring and continued it in the New Japan press area. You can watch both below and I highly recommend that you do so as Kenny pulled no punches!
