In a shocking upset in the main event for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at New Japan Pro Wrestling's yearly event, Domination.

Shingo Takagi defeated Kazuchika Okada to become the third IWGP World Heavyweight Champion since the unification of the IWGP Heavyweight & IWGP Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship.

The reason as to why this was a shocking upset is because Okada was a clear favourite heading into this event, as he himself was heading to a sense of normality after contracting Covid 19 which had kept him out of competition for the month of May. 

Takagi seemed just as shocked as everyone else once the referee had completed the count and raised his hand in victory.
