Ishii is champion once again.
For the fifth time in his career, Tomohiro Ishii captured the NEVER Openweight Title when he defeated Taichi at NJPW Dominion. Ishii always seems to bring out the best in Taichi as the usually stalling "singer" brought the fight to the Stone Pitbull. However, it wasn't enough as Ishii survived Taichi's best shots, eventually putting him away with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster.
This marks Ishii's first time holding the NEVER Openweight Title since 2015. Taichi did not have a single successful title defense after winning the belt on May 3. The title has changed hands nine times since Dominion 2018.
