New Japan Pro Wrestling announced several big items following the "Invasion Attack" PPV on Sunday.

- A.J. Styles will challenge New Japan's top champion, Kazuchika Okada, for the IWGP World Title on May 3 in Japan. This will be New Japan's next PPV event, "Wrestling Dontaku 2014."

The title match is the weekend before New Japan travels to North America to tour with Ring of Honor on May 10 in Toronto and May 17 in New York City.

The May 3 show will also include Kota Ibushi vs. Ryusuke Taguchi for the IWGP Jr. Hvt. Title.

- New Japan announced that former IWGP Jr. Hvt. champion Prince Devitt has "sent his notice of resignation" to the company.

This appears to be Devitt's write-off after he left the Bullet Club, was replaced by Styles as the faction's leader, and made up with his former Apollo 55 tag partner, Ryusuke Taguchi, on Sunday's PPV.

- The NWA World Title re-match between Satoshi Kojima and Rob Conway is scheduled for New Japan's "Wrestling World" show in Taiwan on April 12. The match is slotted for the semi-main event.

- The NWA World Tag Title re-match between Kojima & Tenzan and Conway & Jax Dane is scheduled for the next show in Taiwan on April 13. The match is also slotted for the semi-main event.
