NJPW has revealed the stipulation for the KOPW 2022 match at Sunday's Dominion event. 

The promotion has announced that after two days of voting on the NJPW and NJPW Global Twitter account, the match will be held under title holder Shingo Takagi's proposed 10-minute scramble rules. The wrestler with the highest total count on their pinfall attempts at the end of 10 minutes will be declared the winner.

Shingo's option won by a 55.5 percent to 44.5 percent margin, with a total of 29,032 votes cast.

Challenger Taichi had proposed a limited finishers total 10 count match, where only certain pin attempts would be allowed, and the first wrestler to reach a total of 10 on their pinfall counts would win.
