On January 4, 2017, Cody defeated [[Juice Robinson]] in his debut match at [[Wrestle Kingdom 11|Wrestle Kingdom 11 in Tokyo Dome]]. Cody's next NJPW match took place on May 3 at [[Wrestling Dontaku 2017]], where he defeated [[David Finlay]]. After defeating [[Michael Elgin]] at [[Dominion 6.11 in Osaka-jo Hall]] on June 11, Cody challenged [[Kazuchika Okada]] to a match for the [[IWGP Heavyweight Championship]] at the [[G1 Special in USA]]. The match took place on July 1 at [[G1 Special in USA]] in Long Beach, California and was won by Okada. On August 13, Cody and Bullet Club stablemate [[Hangman Page]] unsuccessfully challenged [[War Machine]] ([[Hanson]] and [[Raymond Rowe]]) for the [[IWGP Tag Team Championship]]. He faced [[Kota Ibushi]] at [[Wrestle Kingdom 12]] in a losing effort. Cody had teased Ibushi about his history with [[Kenny Omega]] during the Wrestle Kingdom match and went to attack Ibushi, but was stopped by an enraged Omega. The tension would come to a head at [[The New Beginning in Sapporo (2018)|The New Beginning in Sapporo]] on January 28, after Omega lost the [[IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship]] to [[Jay White]], [[Hangman Page]] challenged White to a title match, but Omega stopped him and handed White his newly-won championship. More members of Bullet Club came to the ring, including Cody. Cody berated Omega for not letting Page have his moment to challenge White, leading to Omega inadvertently shoving down Matt Jackson. The remaining Bullet Club members decided to leave the ringside area to let Cody and Omega discuss their differences, but Cody instead turned on Omega and Page went to assist Cody to further attack Omega, until Kota Ibushi made the save. The two would continue fighting over the leadership of Bullet Club, and at [[Honor Rising: Japan 2018|Honor Rising: Japan]] on February 24, Cody and Bullet Club stablemate [[Marty Scurll]] lost to Omega and Ibushi. During this time, Cody tried to split the Bullet Club by making Page and Scurll on his side and triyng to make [[The Young Bucks]] (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) on his side. Cody and Page would continue feuding with Omega and Ibushi, leading to a match at [[Sakura Genesis 2018|Sakura Genesis]] on April 1, where Cody and Page managed to win. Cody would then face Ibushi on May 3 at [[Wrestling Dontaku 2018|Wrestling Dontaku]] in a winning effort. On July 7 at [[G1 Special in San Francisco]], Cody unsuccessfully challenged Omega for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, ending their feud over the leadership. On September 30 at [[Fighting Spirit Unleashed (2018)|Fighting Spirit Unleashed]], Cody defeated [[Juice Robinson]] to win the [[IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship]]. He lost the title back to Robinson on January 4, 2019 at [[Wrestle Kingdom 13|Wrestle Kingdom 13 in Tokyo Dome]].
