NJPW Dominion EVIL

A new double champion reigned following the main event of NJPW Dominion. EVIL defeated Tetsuya Naito in an interference-filled match to capture both the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championships. The match saw several Bullet Club members interfere, capped off by Dick Togo coming down to the ring in a BUSHI mask to attack Naito and allow EVIL to hit his finisher for the win and titles. You can see clips from the match below.

After the match, Togo and EVIL attacked Naito but Hiromu Takahashi ran out to the ring and made the save. He then challenged EVIL, saying the new champion could put just one of his titles on the line.

EVIL is in his first reign with both championships. Naito held the IWGP Heavyweight Championship for 189 days in his second reign, having won it from Kazuchika Okada at Wrestle Kingdom 14. His IWGP Intercontinental Championship reign was his fifth and lasted 190 days, having defeated Jay White the night before he beat Okada for the Heavyweight Title.
