Scott D'Amore has invited NJPW's Hiromu Takahashi to challenge for Impact Wrestling's X-Division Championship.
Takahashi defeated the current champion, Ace Austin, in the Best of the Super Juniors on Saturday. Following the match, Austin congratulated Takahashi on his victory in a tweet he posted in Japanese.
"Congratulations. I am forced to respect you, but I will meet again," reads a Google translation of Austin's post.
"A man never breaks his word, right? I want your belt!" Takahashi responded.
This led D'Amore to invite Takahashi to travel through the forbidden door and challenge for the X-Division Championship in an Impact Wrestling ring.
Both Takahashi and Austin went into their match on Saturday undefeated with 2-0 records. Austin defeated Clark Connors and Yoshinobu Kanemaru in his first tournament matches. Takahashi defeated Ryusuke Taguchi and Francesco Akira in his opening contests.
