“Greatest Match Ever” Rematch Announced
Kenny Omega and Kazuchika Okada stunned the world with their incredible match at January’s Wrestle Kingdom, a bout widely considered as one of – if not THE – greatest of all time. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer went so far as to award it an unprecedented ****** (six stars) and declared it the finest match ever contested.
Fans have been clamoring for a rematch ever since, and on June 11 at Osaka-jo Hall they will finally get it when Okada and Omega square off again at Dominion. A staredown at the conclusion of Wrestling Dontaku earlier this week set the scene, following Omega’s defeat of Tomohiro Ishii and Okada’s successful title defence against Bad Luck Fale.
Elsewhere on Dominion, a second Wrestle Kingdom match will take place as IWGP Intercontinental Champion Tetsuya Naito defends against Hiroshi Tanahashi.
