The results are in for the 15th edition of NJPW Dominion with the biggest names in NJPW and some huge AEW names on the card as well.

New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Dominion event took place on June 4th in Osaka, Japan with several big matches on the card.

Will Ospreay beat Lance Archer in the opening match to earn a shot at the IWGP US Title held by Kenny Omega. It was later confirmed that the Ospreay-Omega match, a rematch from Wrestle Kingdom 17 in January, will take place at the AEW-NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view on June 25th in Toronto.

There was also a huge match for the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championships. That match saw Chaos (Kazuchika Okada & Tomohiro Ishii) and Hiroshi Tanahashi defeat Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli) and Shota Umino.

After that match, Bryan Danielson issued a challenge to Okada for AEW-NJPW Forbidden Door and Okada accepted, so that dream match is coming in three weeks.

The main event saw SANADA defeat Yota Tsuji to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship.
