The card is an exciting card and the people of Melbourne are in for a fantastic live event. The main question is will Robbie Eagles bring the gold to Bullet Club in his home country of Australia. This will be the first title defense for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship, since Will Ospreay has obtained it after Best of the Super Jrs. Ospreay expressed his respect for Eagles during Best of the Super Jrs. and how he offered him a spot in CHAOS. Robbie Eagles did not accept the offer instead joined Bullet Club. Ospreay stated his offer still stands because he still sees the real Eagles deep down inside.
