NJPW Dominion 2020: Start Time, Card and How to Watch Online

New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) has resumed its shows amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and its first big show, Dominion, goes down this Sunday.

The Japanese wrestling promotion re-started its operations on June 15 with the New Japan Cup, its annual tournament to determine the next challenger for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, the top title in the company.

Tetsuya Naito holds both the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championships and the winner of the New Japan Cup will face the champ for both titles.

As NJPW continues to build upon its shows, and having limited capacity crowds, this weekend will see the conclusion of the 2020 New Japan Cup and then Dominion will follow which will continue the stories that began at Wrestle Kingdom in January.

While WWE and AEW have never stopped, NJPW ceased operations until the government deemed it safe enough to continue. And now fans of the promotion will hopefully be rewarded for their patience with this big show.
