We see Ace Austin who is Tokyo for the Super Juniors. He patronizingly applauds Bailey. Mike chose to be selfish and now he has to learn the hardway, like Trey Miguel. As long as Ace is in the picture, everyone else is second place. While his focus is here in NJPW for the Super Juniors, he is going to be ready for the Ultimate X.
