As Ben-K continued to boast, Masato Tanaka’s theme began to play. Grabbing a mic, he began to speak “You don’t seem to have any respect for anyone, do you? Well, I think I can change that. Regardless of what you may think, there were more matches on All or Nothing other than you and one of those included me and Goto winning against two other great teams. How about me and Goto vs you and one of your Dojo Boys? Unless you’re too scared.” “Of course I’m not scared of you, you’re fucking on!” bellowed Ben-K.
