This update is brought to you by IndyWrestling.us. (STINGER: NJPW) Bullet Club dominated New Japan's Wrestling Dontaku show on Sunday…adding championships and a new member! We're going to run through this chronologically. First, Bullet Club's Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens are the new IWGP Tag Team Champions. They pinned Hirooki Goto to win a 3-way over Goto & YOSHI-HASHI…and the former champs Great-O-Khan & Jeff Cobb. In the following match, Tama Tonga beat EVIL to win the NEVER Openweight Title. But right after the 3-count, Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows made a surprise appearance to beat up Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, and Jado. Next, Bullet Club's Taiji Ishimori beat El Desperado to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title. The semi-main event was up next: Hiroshi Tanahashi beat Tomohiro Ishii to win the vacant IWGP United States Championship. Chase Owens confronted Tanahashi after the match, setting him up for a blindside attack by a masked man - who revealed himself to be Juice Robinson, who is now part of Bullet Club. Robinson had said he would be leaving New Japan when his contract expired at the end of April. Juice is a LIAR!. Finally came the main event. Kazuchika Okada beat Tetsuya Naito to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. But just when it appeared the show-ending celebration was over, Jay White showed up - back in Japan for the first time in about a year. White and the rest of the refreshed Bullet Club lineup laid out Okada to close the show. Okada is now set to defend against White at Dominion on June 12th. Also announced for Dominion…Anderson will challenge Tama Tonga for the NEVER Title…and Owens & Fale will defend the tag titles against Cobb & Great-O-Khan. Shingo Takagi will defend the KOPW 2022 trophy against Taichi at Dominion. Taichi pinned Takagi with a Gedo Clutch to win a 6-man tag at Wrestling Dontaku. Other results from that show, Ryusuke Taguchi & Master Wato beat DOUKI & Yoshinobu Kanemaru to hold onto their junior tag titles. Hiromu Takahashi beat YOH. And Tanga Loa beat Yujiro Takahashi. Tokyo Sports reports Tetsuya Naito will undergo a second surgery to address double vision in his right eye. The first procedure was back in 2019 and Naito missed a few weeks of action. New Japan Sunday also announced the field for the Best of the Super Juniors tournament. It includes a number of foreigners and fresh faces for New Japan fans. They include AEW star and Ring of Honor Pure Champion Wheeler Yuta…Impact X-Division Champion Ace Austin…U.S. indie standout Alex Zayne…GLEAT's El Lindaman…New Japan newcomer Francesco Akira…Titan from CMLL...and a couple of regulars from New Japan Strong: Clark Connors and TJP. The tournament begins on Sunday, May 15th. TJP was on Saturday's New Japan Strong…and he took a loss to Mascara Dorada. Also on the show, Jay Lethal beat Ren Narita…and The DKC beat Kevin Knight. Brody King vs. Minoru Suzuki has been added to the Capital Collision show in Washington, D.C. on May 14th. (STINGER: WWE) Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns & SmackDown Tag Champs The Usos are being promoted for tonight's RAW. This follows a big change to the lineup for WrestleMania Backlash. The tag team championship unification match is no longer on the card. Instead, it'll be Reigns and The Usos vs. Drew McIntyre & the RAW Tag Champs RK-Bro. The change was made during last Friday's SmackDown. McIntyre came to the rescue of RK-Bro after they were attacked by Reigns & The Usos. WWE released TEN individuals associated with its NXT brand and Performance Center, including Dakota Kai, Dexter Lumis, Draco Anthony, Harland, Malcolm Bivens, and Persia Pirotta. WWE's big show in Cardiff, Wales in the United Kingdom in September will be called “Clash At The Castle” (STINGER: AEW) AEW announced the early start time for this Friday's episode of Rampage - 5:30 PM Eastern. This is due to coverage of the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs on TNT. On last Friday's Rampage, Darby Allin qualified for the Owen Hart Foundation Men's Tournament. He beat Swerve Strickland. Tonight's Dark: Elevation has DDT Pro's Konosuke Takeshita vs. Ring of Honor star Rhett Titus. Another former ROH star, Cheeseburger, will take on Tony Nese. Plus, Nyla Rose & Emi Sakura vs. Anna Jay & Kris Statlander. AEW stars were all over AAA's Triplemania XXX show in Monterrey Saturday night. The Young Bucks beat AAA Mega Champion Hijo Del Vikingo & Fenix in the main event. Vikingo took the pin. Sammy Guevara & Tay Conti won the AAA Mixed Tag Team Titles. Back in Japan… Go Shiozaki is the new GHC Heavyweight Champion. He beat Kaito Kiyomiya to win the vacant title at Pro-Wrestling NOAH's show over the weekend. Shiozaki is now set to defend the GHC Title against Satoshi Kojima at the Cyber Fight Festival on June 12th. Also announced for the Cyber Fight Festival - Rob Van Dam.

Kevin Nash posted on social media early Monday morning that once Hall's family is in place “they will discontinue life support”. (STINGER: WWE) Former WWE Champion Big E suffered a broken neck on Friday night's SmackDown. E landed on his head from a belly-to-belly suplex at ringside delivered by Ridge Holland. E was taken backstage on a stretcher. E himself shared a couple of updates over the weekend. He said his C-1 and C-6 vertebrae were fractured - but not displaced. He also said there's NO damage to his spinal cord or ligament damage. He won't need surgery. He said he's able to move all his extremities but there's no word on how long he'll be out of action. Xavier Woods returned to action over the weekend for the first time since he suffered a calf injury back in January. He tagged with Kofi Kingston at a non-televised house show Saturday night.

The winner of the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match gets a shot at the TNT Championship at next month's Revolution pay-per-view. Another fresh face on last night's Dynamite…New Japan Pro-Wrestling's Jay White. He made a brief cameo during a backstage segment to help the Young Bucks and Adam Cole attack Roppongi Vice. Tony Khan tweeted after the show that didn't secure White's services until Sunday…apparently to make good on Khan's promise of a “Forbidden Door” moment. A.Q.A. - formerly known as Zayda Ramier in NXT - also made her AEW debut last night. She lost to TBS Champion Jade Cargill. CM Punk will get a rematch against MJF. He had to make a deal…but in the end, Punk recruited Jon Moxley to help him beat FTR. Hangman Page is STILL the AEW Champion. He beat Lance Archer in a Texas Death Match last night. Adam Cole was out after the match to make it clear he has eyes for the title. The Inner Circle appears to be crumbling.

Also last night, Wardlow beat The Blade…and Serena Deeb introduced her “5 Minute Rookie Challenge”, and beat Katie Arquette in about a minute. AEW is dropping a special episode of Dark TONIGHT…with Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Lee Johnson…Sonny Kiss vs. Aaron Solo…and Private Party & The Blade vs. Dante Martin, Matt Sydal & Lee Moriarty. Tony Khan told TV Insider “a lot” of AEW contracts are expiring…and he can't renew all of them.
