Kenny Omega
As previously reported, several major title changed hands at NJPW's recent Dominion Event. The biggest news of them all is Kenny Omega winning the IWGP Heavyweight Title from Kazuchika Okada. In the 2 Out Of 3 Falls/No Time Limit Match, Okada won the first fall, but Omega won the next two to end Okada's historic run at 720 days. The match lasted just over one hour and six minutes. This is Omega's first time winning the title. Okada won it back in June of 2016. You can check out how the title changed hands in the videos below:

The Bullet Club is the hottest faction right now in the world of professional wrestling, but whatever faction Kenny Omega could end up in will also be the hottest faction in the world of professional wrestling. Kenny Omega teased forming a new faction after defeating Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Title. During the post-match press conference, Kenny Omega referred to a new era. He said that there was The Elite and The Golden Lovers, but now it's The Golden Elite. While he said this, Kota Ibushi and The Young Bucks stood behind him. It should also be noted that Cody came out during Omega's celebration, but decided not to congratulate the new champion. You can check out Kenny Omega's post-match press conference comments below:
