Dominion is an annual professional wrestling event promoted by New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). The event has been held every June since 2009 as pay-per-view (PPV). Since 2013, viewers outside of Japan have also been able to view the event as an internet pay-per-view (iPPV). Dominion is the first major event following the Best of the Super Juniors tournament and usually includes a match, where the tournament winner challenges for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, assuming the champion has not won the tournament.

The first Dominion was held on June 20, 2009, in Osaka, Osaka, at the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium. The event featured ten matches, two of which were contested for championships.[1] Go Shiozaki and Takashi Sugiura from Pro Wrestling Noah took part in the event as outsiders.[1] The event marked the culmination of a storyline rivalry between the fifth Black Tiger and the fourth Tiger Mask in a Mask vs. Mask match, where Tiger Mask was victorious. Post-match, Black Tiger was prevented from escaping by Koji Kanemoto, the former third Tiger Mask, and then unmasked by Tiger Mask, revealing veteran wrestler Tatsuhito Takaiwa.[2] American promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) representatives Team 3D returned to NJPW at the event to successfully defend the IWGP Tag Team Championship against Giant Bernard and Karl Anderson.[1] In the main event, Hiroshi Tanahashi recaptured the IWGP Heavyweight Championship from Manabu Nakanishi and was afterwards challenged by Sugiura, setting up his first title defense.[1] The original promotional poster for the event created some controversy due to its usage of Nazi symbols.[3]

The second Dominion was held on June 19, 2010, in Osaka, Osaka, at the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium. The event featured nine matches, three of which were contested for championships.[4] Much like the previous year, Dominion 6.19 also featured wrestlers from Pro Wrestling Noah; namely Go Shiozaki, Mohammed Yone and Naomichi Marufuji.[4] The event also saw Shinsuke Nakamura make his return from a shoulder injury, facing the debuting former WWE wrestler and mixed martial artist Daniel Puder.[4] The match led to Nakamura and Puder teaming up for the 2010 G1 Tag League.[5] The event featured the culmination of a storyline rivalry between Hiroshi Tanahashi and Toru Yano in a Hair vs. Hair match, where Tanahashi was victorious.[4] Following the match, Tajiri made a surprise return to the promotion, saving Tanahashi from Yano and Takashi Iizuka and helping him shave Yano bald.[4] This also led to Tanahashi and Tajiri teaming up for the 2010 G1 Tag League.[5] The event concluded with NJPW's Togi Makabe and Prince Devitt declaring the promotion's supremacy over Pro Wrestling Noah, with Devitt having captured the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship from Marufuji and Makabe retaining the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Shiozaki.[4]

The sixth Dominion took place on June 21, 2014, in Osaka, Osaka, at the Bodymaker Colosseum. The event featured nine matches, five of which were contested for championships.[19][20][21] In the first title match, Time Splitters (Alex Shelley and Kushida) defeated The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship for the second time.[19][22] This rematch from February's The New Beginning in Osaka was a result of the first day of the 2014 Best of the Super Juniors, where Shelley and Kushida scored back-to-back wins over Nick and Matt, respectively.[23][24] In the second title match, Tencozy made their third successful defense of the NWA World Tag Team Championship against former champions, K.E.S.[19][22] The third title match saw Kota Ibushi make his fourth successful defense of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship against the winner of the 2014 Best of the Super Juniors, Dragon Gate representative Ricochet.[19][22] Post-match, Ibushi was challenged by both Kushida and El Desperado.[19] This led to a title match on July 4 at Kizuna Road 2014, where Kushida defeated Ibushi to become a double champion.[25] Dominion 6.21 also featured a follow-up to Back to the Yokohama Arena, where Takashi Iizuka turned on Toru Yano and jumped to Suzukigun.[26] Iizuka teamed with Suzukigun leader and Yano's longtime rival Minoru Suzuki to defeat Yano and his new partner Kazushi Sakuraba,[19] who had surprisingly saved Yano from the two on June 8.[27] The next match continued the storyline rivalry between the Bullet Club and Chaos stables, when IWGP Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles and Yujiro Takahashi took on Kazuchika Okada and NEVER Openweight Champion Tomohiro Ishii.[27] The match was a result of events that took place at Back to the Yokohama Arena, where Takahashi attacked Ishii and asserted himself the next challenger to his title.[26] Later in the event, Ishii attacked Takahashi, when he was interfering in an IWGP Heavyweight Championship match between Styles and Okada.[26] At Dominion 6.21, Takahashi pinned Ishii for the win, continuing the build-up to a title match between the two,[19] which took place eight days later at Kizuna Road 2014 and saw Takahashi become the new NEVER Openweight Champion.[28] In the semi main event, Bullet Club's Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson made their fifth successful defense of the IWGP Tag Team Championship against Ace to King (Hiroshi Tanahashi and Togi Makabe).[19][22] The match also marked Makabe's return the ring, after he had suffered a mandibular fracture at Back to the Yokohama Arena, where he and Tanahashi had become the number one contenders.[26][29] In the main event of the evening, Bullet Club's Bad Luck Fale defeated Chaos' Shinsuke Nakamura to become the new IWGP Intercontinental Champion.[19][22]
