NJPW January 4th Dome Show lineup set

The New Japan Jan. 4 Tokyo Dome complete lineup was just announced on the acompany's web site:

1) New Japan Rumble - This is basically getting everyone in the promotion not in the match on the card along with a bunch of surprises and legends for cameos
2) Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly vs. Young Bucks vs. Ricochet & Matt Sydal vs. Rocky Romero & Trent Baretta for IWGP Jr. tag titles
3) Toru Yano and two mystery partners vs. Bad Luck Fale & Yujiro Takahashi & Tama Tonga
4) Jay Lethal vs. Michael Elgin (this has not been announced as an ROH title match yet, probably will be after 12/18)
5) Kenny Omega vs. Kushida for IWGP jr. title
6) Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows vs. Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma for the IWGP tag team titles
7) Hirooki Goto vs. Tetsuya Naito
8) Tomohiro Ishii vs. Katsuyori Shibata for Never Open weight title
9) Shinsuke Nakamura vs. A.J. Styles for IC title
10) Kazuchika Okada vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi for IWGP heavyweight title

The matches should be very good, well, with the exception of the Yano match, and that's fine.  But the show is lacking in punch, with no special outsiders.
