The individual behind the vignettes has been revealed. 

Headlining NJPW Wrestling Dontaku was the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship match between the champion SANADA and challenger Hiromu Takahashi. SANADA was able to defeat Takahashi to hold onto the belt. 

After SANADA spoke to the audience in attendance, the arena went dark and the vignettes promoting an incoming talent aired once again. Behind the vignettes is the returning Yota Tsuji. 

Tsuji entered the ring and took out Just Five Guys (SANADA, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, Taichi, DOUKI & TAKA Michinoku). He then held up the IWGP World Heavyweight Title and did the Los Ingobernables de Japon gesture.

When cameras got to Tsuji backstage, Hiromu Takahashi was already on the ground. Tsuji carried Takahashi away. 

Tsuji had been on excursion and competing in CMLL, Revolution Pro Wrestling, wXw Germany and several independent promotions. He last wrestled for NJPW in October.
