Meltzer Rates The Omega/Okada Match At Dominion, Jericho/Naito
Thursday, June 14, 2018
New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) just recently had their Dominion Event which was no doubt one of the greatest events in the history of the company. The event was stacked from top to bottom with each match showcasing the best talents NJPW has to offer. Two of the greatest matches in the PPV no doubt were the IWGP Intercontinental Title Match and the IWGP Heavyweight Title Match.
The IWGP Heavyweight Title Match between new IWGP Heavyweight Champion
and former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada at NJPW's Dominion Event last weekend set a new high for match ratings in The
Newsletter. According to Dave Meltzer, The 2 Out Of 3 Falls/ No Time Limit Match between Omega and Okada earned 7 stars. After losing the first fall, Omega won two straight to end Okada's historic run at 720 days. The match lasted 69:49.
The first Omega vs. Okada Match at Wrestle Kingdom in 2017 had previously set a new high of 6 stars. Up until then, it was believed that the ratings only went up to 5 stars. Since the first Omega vs. Okada meeting, six matches have earned more than 5 stars, all in NJPW, including last Saturday's Omega vs. Okada bout.
The IWGP Intercontinental Title Match between new IWGP Intercontinental Champion
and former IWGP Intercontinental Champion Tetsuya Naito earned a high rating from The Observer with that match scoring 4.5 stars. Jericho's match with Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 this past January had earned 5 stars, which was the highest rating by The Observer for any Jericho match in his career.
