NJPW has officially announced a handful of matches for their annual Dominion show in Osaka-Jo Hall. 

After the vicious assault we watched take place in Fukoda just days ago, we have learned that Tetsuya Naito will be given the opportunity to exact revenge on Chris Jericho in a singles match for Naito’s IWGP Intercontinental Championship. This match will join the already announced 2 out of 3 falls no time limit duel between Kazuchika Okada and Kenny Omega for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at the top of the card. 

Rey Mysterio has also been announced to participate at Dominion on June 9th. Mysterio was originally set to be a special attraction for New Japan at Strong Style Evolved earlier this year in California but was forced to pull out due to injury. As promised, he will return, and it will likely be against a top Jr. Heavyweight as teased during the SSE show. 

Also announced for the card, The Young Bucks will get their first shot at Heavyweight gold when they square off against IWGP Tag Team Champions EVIL and SANADA and Hirooki Goto will put his NEVER Openweight Championship on the line in a 3-way against Michael Elgin and Taichi.
