Since Wrestle Kingdom is supposed to be their version of Wrestlemania, New Japan Pro Wrestling officials made sure to bring in some globally famous faces for the pay per view. One of the more recognizable names on the card was Billy Gunn. The former WWE star worked a battle royal to open up the show. He was one of the first two contestants in the match, along with former ROH star Michael Elgin. Gunn lasted until the fifth entrant before being eliminated by Elgin. Prior to the elimination, Gunn and Elgin had worked together. The two of them even teamed up to eliminate Bone Soldier.
