Okada’s Opponent for Dominion Revealed
The following contains spoilers from tonight’s New Japan show so you have been warned!
At Dontaku tonight, Kazuchika Okada defeated Sanada to retain the IWGP Heavyweight Champonship. After the match as Okada was doing a promo, the following video played:
Okada accepted the challenge, giving us Okada vs Chris Jericho at Dominion on June 9.
In addition to that, Naito officially challenged Kota Ibushi for his rematch for the IC Title which Ibushi accepted. They also appeared to set up Jay White vs Tanahashi.
JC’s Take: That’s a pretty solid Top 3 for Dominion. I see some people complaining about Jericho getting a shot and that New Japan caters too much to him and should build their own stars. I bet if it was Kenny Omega in this spot people wouldn’t complain. I thought this match actually had a good shot of happening at MSG at one point but I’m sure ROH wouldn’t have wanted that.
I still think the long term plan is for Ibushi to beat Naito again, then have Naito finally beat Ibushi in the finals of the G1.
