NEVER Openweight title match added to NJPW Dominion

Tomohiro Ishii will be challenging for the NEVER Openweight Championship next month.

Taichi defending his NEVER Openweight title against Ishii is now official for NJPW Dominion. The event is being held at Osaka-jo Hall on Sunday, June 9.

Taichi defeated Jeff Cobb to win the NEVER title at Wrestling Dontaku night one last Friday. Ishii was then revealed as Taichi's next challenger during a backstage confrontation at Wrestling Dontaku night two. Ishii defeated EVIL before the angle with Taichi took place.

This is Taichi's second reign with the NEVER title. He previously held it from September 17 to November 3 of last year.

Chris Jericho challenging for Kazuchika Okada's IWGP Heavyweight Championship has been confirmed as the main event of Dominion, and Kota Ibushi defending the IWGP Intercontinental Championship against Tetsuya Naito is also now official for the show. Both of those matches were set up at Wrestling Dontaku night two.
