REWIND-A-WAI #152: NJPW Dominion 2018 (Okada vs Omega, 2/3 Falls)

Originally published at REWIND-A-WAI #152: NJPW Dominion 2018 (Okada vs Omega, 2/3 Falls) - POST Wrestling | WWE AEW NXT NJPW Podcasts, News, Reviews

John Pollock and Wai Ting review NJPW Dominion 2018 featuring Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega in a 2/3 Falls Match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

They discuss the final chapter of the Okada-Omega rivalry in a match considered by many to be the greatest of all time, the culmination of Okada’s 2-year championship reign, and the changing landscape of New Japan in 2018 — 6 months before the formation of AEW and The Elite’s departure.

Plus, a look at other top matches on the card including Naito vs. Jericho, Young Bucks vs. EVIL & SANADA, Ospreay vs. Takahashi, and a multi-man match involving Rey Mysterio, Cody and Jushin “Thunder” Liger.

John takes us through news and notes from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in June 2018 featuring headlines about CM Punk, ROH running Madison Square Garden, and Dominik Mysterio.

Ideally I would like to see David Arquette shoehorned into every episode of Rewind A Wai moving forward. We can’t get away from this guy. Was he in the crowd at WrestleMania 8? I wanna know about it.

Loved the episode! There was a period of about five-ish years were I really stopped catching up on wrestling all together and this period of wrestling falls into that so I’m glad I was able to watch the whole event on NJPW World and see some key matches I’ve missed over the years.
