    NJPW Event Cards for May & June 2014
    http://puroresuspirit.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/njpw-event-cards-for-may-june-2014/

  9. Notes: 14 / 4 months ago 

    [NJPW News] New Japan announced the early event card for the upcoming DOMINION show in Osaka, Japan on June 21.

    Five headlining matches have been announced for the show, with 4 out of the 5 being title matches.

    First up Shinsuke Nakamura will be putting the IWGP IC belt on the line against the runner-up of this years NEW JAPAN CUP in Bad Luck Fale. This match will be a rematch from that tournament’s final where Nakamura ended up as the winner. Fale has been leaving his mark in recent month by taking out everyone in front of him with his “monster-like” strength and size. This will mark Fale’s first ever singles throne challenge in NJPW and if their NJC match was any indication this one should be a solid contest.

    Also “King Ace” the team of Hiroshi Tanahashi & Togi Makabe will be getting their IWGP Tag title shot against Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows on the show. King Ace earned this right after beating Hirooki Goto & Katsuyori Shibata at the Yokohama Arena on 5/25 and will be looking to take their strong alliance to a championship reign.

    Kota Ibushi’s next IWGP Jr. defense has been set as well as he will be putting the belt on the line again the winner of the upcoming BEST OF THE SUPER Jr.’s XXI. Ibushi himself will not be competing in this years tournament, but as I stated before this opens the field for a true contender to emerge to face the champion.

    In an interesting turn of events, the reigning IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles “will not” be defending the belt at this years DOMINION show, but instead will be in a tag match as he teams with fellow BULLET CLUB member Yujiro Takahashi as they take on Kazuchika Okada and Tomohiro Ishii. This match will also be a potential prelude to a future NEVER Openweight match as Ishii has been challenged by Yujiro for a title match. One might also suspect that Okada and Ishii will be looking to exact some much needed revenge after Yujiro defected from the CHAOS faction to join BULLET CLUB.

    Then lastly, an NWA World Tag match has also been signed as Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima will be defending against “K.E.S.” Lancer Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr.

    Kazushi Sakuraba & Katsuyori Shibata have also been scheduled for competition on the show.

    New Japan Pro-Wrestling “DOMINION 6.21”, 6/21/2014 [Sat] 17:00 @ BODYMAKER COLOSSEUM in Osaka

    (-) Special Tag Match: Kazuchika Okada & Tomohiro Ishii vs. AJ Styles & Yujiro Takahashi

    (-) NWA World Tag Championship Match: [75th Champions] Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima vs. [Challengers] Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr.
    ~ 3rd title defense.

    (-) IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship Match: [67th Champion] Kota Ibushi vs. [Challenger] (Winner of the BOSJ XXI)
    ~ 4th title defense.

    (-) IWGP Tag Championship Match: [64th Champions] “The Machine Gun” Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows vs. [Challengers] “King Ace” Hiroshi Tanahashi & Togi Makabe
    ~ 5th title defense.

    (-) IWGP Intercontinental Championship Match: [8th Champion] Shinsuke Nakamura vs. [Challenger] Bad Luck Fale
