Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega rematch set for NJPW Dominion

The most anticipated rematch of the year is officially set.

New Japan Pro Wrestling announced tonight that Kazuchika Okada will defend his IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Kenny Omega in the main event of Dominion on June 11th at Osaka-jo Hall. The two had what was widely considered a classic match at the Tokyo Dome earlier this year.

A rematch was always going to happen, but it became apparent that Dominion would be the place for it at NJPW's Wrestling Dontaku show earlier this week. Omega first defeated Tomohiro Ishii, then Okada successfully defended his title against Bad Luck Fale before the rivals had a staredown.

Another Wrestle Kingdom rematch is also confirmed for the show, with Tetsuya Naito putting the IWGP Intercontinental Championship on the line against Hiroshi Tanahashi.

No other matches have been announced for Dominion yet. If Hiromu Takahashi doesn't win the Best of the Super Juniors tournament, whoever does will likely challenge for his IWGP Junior Heavyweight title in Osaka.
