Four championship matches are set for New Japan’s Dominion card in June.
After being attacked after his title defense against Tetsuya Naito, IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada will defend the championship against Jay White on Sunday, June 12th.
White returned to New Japan after the main event, attacking Okada and aligning with The Bullet Club as the show went off the air.
White has not wrestled in Japan since last year’s Wrestling Dontaku event in May.
Tama Tonga is the new NEVER Openweight Champion and will defend the title against Karl Anderson at the Dominion event.
Tonga pinned EVIL to win the title and was attacked by the returning Anderson & Doc Gallows to set up the match involving former stablemates.
Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens will make the first defense of their IWGP Tag Team Championships against former champions Jeff Cobb & The Great O-Khan.
Fale & Owens won the titles in a three-way match involving Cobb & O-Khan and Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI but did not pin the champions.
The fourth title match announced is a rematch for the KOPW 2022 trophy between its holder Shingo Takagi and Taichi. The rules for the match haven’t been determined. Typically, the two select stipulations and it’s voted on by the fans.
Dominion will take place at Osaka-jo Hall on Sunday, June 12th, and streams on New Japan World.
