    NJPW NJPW Dominion - June 9th 2018



    Announced matches so far:

    IWGP Heavyweight Championship
    Kazuchika Okada (c) Vs Kenny Omega
    2/3 Falls no time limit

    IWGP Intercontinental Championship
    Tetsuya Naito (c) Vs Chris Jericho

    IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship

    Evil and Sanada (c) Vs The Young Bucks

    NEVER Openweight Championship
    Hirooki Goto (c) Vs Michael Elgin Vs Taichi

    Plus an appearance from Rey Mysterio

    -----

    This is looking like the most westernised New Japan show I've ever seen. 2/3 Falls, triple threats, Bucks challenging for the heavyweight tag titles, Mysterio, Jericho and I'm guessing his match with Naito turns into a No DQ match of some kind.

    I am surprised that Jericho/Naito isn't at Cow Palace. They really must be confident of what they're going to put together for that card because ticket sales are not going very well from what I understand.

    A Triple Threat for a singles title? Alright, it's official. LIJ fans have killed Gedo and someone has took his place.


    This card does look great. Perhaps it's because they had to stretch it out over a huge tour, but the last cards looked weak apart from a few matches. Okada vs Omega will be a great match as long as they don't go too over the top. I never felt the length of their first two matches but eve I don't think I could handle a match past an hour. That's my cut off point. So let's hope that the no time limits stip is a diversion for a shorter, 40 minutes match ( 40 minutes being short in this instance). I din't expect anything from Jericho for WK and he surprised me. I think the No DQ stip helped a lot so I'm not sure of what to expect in the Naito match. The Young Bucks have been fab this year, SANADA has been phenomenal and EVIL has looked fine considering he just come off injury. That should be good. I can see Goto losing the title here but Elgin taking the pin for Taichi. I hope I'm wrong but that's what I can see happening.

    Three horrible people for a pointless belt sounds like fun time

    I actually am into the other three title matches.

    Maybe Jericho cheats to win and it sets up a rematch for Cow Palace. It's hard to comment without knowing what's coming up there but I think it would have been smart to save a big match they could have put out when tickets went on sale, but it tells me Omega's for sure getting the title & they have something big planned to announce afterwards. (There's a rumor that Jericho doesn't want to wrestle in the US tho which could have played into it. Either way, their match didn't need the title & the booking behind Naito/Jericho is awful all around)

    EVIL/SANADA vs The Bucks should be a good match, & with G1 coming up I can definitely see a title switch. Sadly another lackluster tag title reign that could have been better if so.

    The Triple Threat looks awful on paper. Juice should feel lucky for dodging this bullet. Unfortunately Goto, despite his recent run of overness takes the fall again due to more bad booking. Taichi's Heavyweight run has been a huge bomb. Elgin looks especially jacked so I could see him.

    I feel like everyone wishing for or thinking of Jericho-at-Cow-Palace is forgetting his loyalty to Vince. Working a show in Japan is much different than coming and working a show for a rival promotion in the States. I'm not saying it's outside the realm of possibility, but it's highly, highly unlikely.

    That said, I love the card so far. Even the Goto/Elgin/Taichi match, should be interesting. I feel like it's a way to get the title on Taichi without having him really beat anybody. Let Goto hit his GTR or even bust out a Shouten on Elgin, then Taichi throws him out of the ring and steals the pin. I wouldn't be upset if I'm wrong but I'll be grinning like a fool if I'm not. Like what other reason is there? That's the only one I can think of.

    Also looking forward to changing my user text to EIGHT F'N STARS after this main event.

    Wonder how Mysterio will get involved. Like the build for Naito-Jericho so far.

    Not off to a good start with that turtle bit though.

    I didn't like it at all. It came of as Jericho trying way too hard to be edgy. Didn't find it particularly interesting.

    I think the swearing can come across like that but I liked the personal jibes at Naito (especially how he's going to make him famous) as well as the line about the IC Belt belonging in the USA since its origins are there. Jericho's enjoyable as fuck when he's let loose. I'm #ALLIN on this feud.

    I hope Okada/Omega is the only match after the intermission and goes 2 hours just to work people.

    Re: NJPW Dominion - June 9th 2018

    I enjoyed Jericho's promo. I don't really see it as him trying to be edgy so much as he is having fun with the lack of constraint in NJPW promos. Thought he came off really well here and I'm not looking forward to their match any more than I already was but that's more because I am very interested to see how their match will go than it is a condemnation of the promo.

    Could probably do without the turtle but eh.

    I just don't like the promo. I was cringing for most of it and confused by it for the rest. Didn't do it for me. In fact, the best part of the promo was when the lights come back on, Naito was pretending to sleep. :lol That was pretty enjoyable, shame I don't feel the same way about the actual promo. As for the freedom, I'm glad Jericho is expressing himself without restrictions but it sounds way too put on and fake for me. He struck gold with the f**k face comment and now he is trying to do it again. That's just my opinion.



    Now on to something else, I know now is the time for Okada to lose the title as it's gone on far too long and he has broken the record meaning that he had no real reason to keep it further BUT I don't think Kenny Omega is the correct choice. The Kenny Omega after the Strong Style Evolved Show maybe could be an acceptable pick to beat Okada and take the belt off him but right now, I feel like he has lost all the momentum he had after the show. After they continued that BC feud way longer than it should have gone has stopped anything Omega had imo. He feels flat and heatless to me. And other than the upcoming US Show, I don't see what makes Omega the best choice to do it right now. Basically, I think Okada should lose the title at Dominion but I don't think Omega should be the one to do it due to lack of momentum. Is that just me?

    That's to be expected since promos are mostly repetitive in the first place anyway so I don't really have much of an issue with it. Okada, Tanahashi, Naito all pretty much hit the same notes with every promo. Okada does the 'three things' shtick all the time for example.

    And really it depends on what Omega does when he wins the belt if it's a good choice or not. He's hot as fuck with the Japanese audience so he's as good a chance as any to topple Okada. If he does, Okada is winning G1. But I'm not sure on that either because this year was Shibata's year to do so and that would have almost certainly meant Okada as champion going into WK. So idk. We'll see what happens.
