NJPW has announced three matches for their Dominion PPV on July 12, which will air overnight tonight for those on the east and west coast in the U.S. The show will air live on NJPW World and be available for replay in the morning.

UPDATE: NJPW announced the rest of the card tonight adding four tag matches, which I will list below:
-Chaos (Kazuchika Okada & Hirooki Goto) vs. Bullet Club (Taiji Ishimori & Yujiro Takahashi)
-Yuya Uemera & Master Wato & Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs. Suzuki-Gun (El Desperado & Douki & Yoshinobu Kanemaru)
-Yota Tsuhi & Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano vs. LIJ (Sanada & Bushi & Hiromu Takahashi)
-Gabriel Kidd & Tomoaki Honma & Togi Makabe vs. Satoshi Kojima & Yuji Nagata & Ryusuke Taguchi
Radican’s Analysis: These are three huge matches that have been built up extremely well during the 2020 NJPW Cup. NJPW has said another 4-6 matches will fill out the rest of the card. The show will feature a crowd at 1/3 capacity at Okaka-Jo Hall, which if last nights NJPW Cup 2020 final show was any indication is a huge boost for viewers at home.
