New Japan Pro Wrestling presents Dominion this weekend, live from Osaka, Japan. The event is typically NJPW's second biggest show of the year and they are bringing the heat this year.
Coming off of a much-talked about Best of the Super Juniors final show just days ago, where Will Ospreay and Shingo Takagi had a match of the year contending bout and Jon Moxley won the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Title from Juice Robinson, the company will try to keep the momentum going this weekend.
The card for NJPW Dominion is below:
IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match
Kazuchika Okada (c) vs. Chris Jericho
IWGP Intercontinental Championship Match
Kota Ibushi (c) vs. Tetsuya Naito
IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship Match
Dragon Lee (c) vs. Will Ospreay
NEVER Openweight Championship Match
Taichi (c) vs. Tomohiro Ishii
IWGP Tag Team Championship Match
Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa (c) vs. EVIL and SANADA
- IWGP U.S. Champion Jon Moxley vs. Shota Umino
- Hiroshi Tanahashi, Juice Robinson and Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Jay White, Chase Owens and Taiji Ishimori
- Jushin Thunder Liger and YOSHI-HASHI vs. Minoru Suzuki and Zack Sabre Jr.
- Satoshi Kojima vs. Shingo Takagi
With Dominion featuring two high profile stars from AEW (Jericho and Moxley), U.S. fans will certainly have a heightened interest in this event. With Moxley winning the IWGP U.S. Championship this week, is it possible that another AEW star (Jericho) walks out of NJPW Dominion with the company's top prize?
