Jake Lee: Yes, that would happen.

Q: Would you call your match with Fujita-san one of the toughest of your career and how much respect do you have for Fujita-san as a competitor?

Q: There are many factions in numerous different promotions. Where do you think GLG ranks among them and is there a faction you would like GLG to have a series with?

Jake Lee: GLG has reached a point where each of us can create a unit and be the leader. Now that each of their individual abilities are at a higher level than before, they will produce good work no matter where they team up or who they fight.
