Full Dominion Card Announced
The show will be headlined with a rematch from last year’s Dominion, as Kazuchika Okada will defend his IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Kenny Omega. To avoid last year’s Time Limit Draw, the match will be fought under No Time Limit Best Of Three Rules. Kenny Omega has been training with his lover Kota Ibushi, saying that having the power of love on his side will help him win the match. Okada has been fishing.
Also on the card is a huge showdown between IWGP Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion Tetsuya Naito will take on former WWE Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho. Jericho instigated the rivalry between the two, attacking Naito at January 5th’s New Year’s Dash event. Jericho then attacked Tetsuya Naito in Fukuoka. Naito’s Intercontinental Championship will be on the line.
Four other title matches are set for Saturday morning’s giant supercard.

Leader of Bread Club and former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Satoshi Kojima took to twitter to complain about a lack of sleep, and an inability to train at night.
Good evening or morning. In fact, I hardly sleep. After all, the training at night is not good for uncle? I can’t get tired, what am I going to do? I’m drinking coffee. I want to eat some bread (;´д｀).
