IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada will lock horns with Kenny Omega for the fourth time this coming June in Osaka-jō Hall.

Okada broke the record for the most successful IWGP Heavyweight title defenses at 12 against Hiroshi Tanahashi— Tana held the previous record at 11 — yesterday in the main event of Wrestling Dontaku.

Following the match, Okada challenged Kenny Omega for his next title challenger, citing that there was unfinished business between the two. Okada and Omega are 1-1-1 after three matches with Omega emerging as the victor of their last contest.Omega would up the stakes, requesting a 2 out of 3 falls match with no time limit. Okada would accept.

The match will take place at Dominion on June 9th inside of the same venue and as the headliner of the same event that saw Okada begin this historic title reign by defeating Tetsuya Naito back in 2016.
