Going into the final A block show on October 18 in the Yokohama Budokan, KENTA, Kota Ibushi, Shingo Takagi and Zack Sabre Jr. are all tied atop A block with 12 points and a 6-2 record.

KENTA has defeated Zack Sabre Jr. and lost to Shingo Takagi but is yet to face Kota Ibushi.

2. Zack Sabre Jr. (6-3 record): 12 points
3. Kota Ibushi (6-3 record): 12 points
4. Shingo Takagi (6-3 record): 12 points

If KENTA defeats Kota Ibushi, Shingo Takagi defeats Yujiro Takahashi and Zack Sabre Jr. defeats Tanga Loa, there will be a three-way tie at the top of A block (each man has one win and one loss against each other).

Shingo Takagi would be eliminated due to losing to Kota Ibushi, meaning KENTA would win A block over Zack Sabre Jr. due to the “primary” head-to-head tiebreak (KENTA and Zack Sabre Jr. both defeated Kota Ibushi, but KENTA defeated Zack Sabre Jr. in the tournament):
