Check out this Wrestling News: New Japan announce two headlining matches for the “NJPW DOMINION” video.
New Japan announced the two headlining matches for the “DOMINION” show on June 11.
The event will feature rematches from this years WRESTLE KINGDOM show as Kazuchika Okada is set to defend the belt once again against Kenny Omega, and then Tetsuya Naito will be putting the IC belt on the line against Hiroshi Tanahashi.
Following his defense against Fale on May 3, Okada called out for a match against Omega. Omega accepted the chance at a rematch for the belt as he called this a big mistake for Okada to be wanting this rematch. Omega aims to capture the IWGP belt ever since winning last years G1 CLIMAX, as he also looks to be heading into this years as the reigning champion. Though with that said, Okada looks to make his claim as a defending champion as he looks to surpass his eight total defense reign from back in 2013.
Then Tetsuya Naito and Hiroshi Tanahashi will once more meet across from one another in the ring. As once the leading man of New Japan, Tanahashi has recently taken a back-step as of late. As he has witnessed both Okada and Naito lead the charge in the promotion. Naito though does not seem totally in favor of Tanahashi receiving another title chance so soon. Though with that said Naito’s blatantly disrespect for the belt is overly apparent as he tossed, kicked, and even threatened to just hand it off as nothing more than a piece of trash. Tanahashi looks to reclaim the belt that he has held in the past and bring some semblance back to it’s a prize to hold.
