John Pollock is joined by WH Park to review New Japan’s Dominion card from Osaka-jo Hall.

The two chat about a card that will likely become one of the most historically significant in New Japan’s worldwide expansion, capped off with the crowning of Kenny Omega as the new IWGP heavyweight champion and ending Kazuchika Okada’s legendary two-year reign.

In addition, we chat about all the new champions coming out of the show, Chris Jericho defeating Tetsuya Naito and setting up a potential match with another LIJ member, matches to make for the Cow Palace card in San Francisco, G1 ideas, and where this match between Omega and Okada ranks.

Coming out of this show the title changes didn’t really surprise me. It made Dominion a massive show and it has everyone talking about it.

Great review - thanks for getting it up so quick!
I napped, I listened. I napped more…and now I am still smiling ear to ear from this show. I haven’t had such a feeling following a sporting event since Sergio Garcia - my favorite golfer growing up- finally slayed his dragon and won a Major. Watching Kenny achieve this dream, watching it be done in such fashion and seeing the Golden Elite there to celebrate, it was all so well presented.

Following on from what WH said about Okada wanting to go after the other belts so he doesn’t just have IWGP Heavyweight Champion on his CV, I’d like to see him tag with Ospreay and go after the Tag belts that the Bucks have. Or maybe have an IC title match at Wrestle Kingdom.


I don’t know how to do this without sounding like a dick but the “likes” make it a tough listen.

Idk. Maybe it’s just in my head now and I’m too not picky.
