New Japan Pro Wrestling held their Wrestling Dontaku event earlier today, headlined by an IWGP World Heavyweight Championship match between defending champ Kazuchika Okada and his challenger, Tetsuya Naito.

Though Okada actually did end up successfully defending his title, several other champions were not so fortunate. Four different title changes occurred at Wrestling Dontaku, including a new IWGP United States Champion in Hiroshi Tanahashi.

Elsewhere, Taiji Ishimori won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight title. Tama Tonga won the NEVER Openweight title, and Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens of the Bullet Club won the IWGP Tag Team titles.

Ryusuke Taguchi and Master Wato were the only other titleholders apart from Okada to also retain at the show. They remain the IWGP Junior Tag Team Champions after their win over Yoshinobu Kanemaru and DOUKI.
