New Japan Pro Wrestling Comes To The Extreme Channel Exclusively On Freeview In The UK


NJPW programming will begin with ‘Dominion’ on Friday 14th June at 8pm.

New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) has signed an exclusive TV broadcast deal with the Extreme Channel.

Extreme will air NJPW’s biggest monthly events - featuring huge pro wrestling stars including Jon Moxley, Jack Sabre Jr. and Hiroshi Tanahashi - across the UK on Freeview TV.

The Extreme Channel launched on Freeview last week, bringing its adrenaline-fueled content into more than 16 million homes on Freeview Channel 295. NJPW programming will begin with ‘Dominion’ on Friday 14th June at 8pm.

‘Dominion’ takes place from its traditional home in the shadows of the famous Osaka Castle. Six championships as well as the Best of the Super Jr. trophy are all at stake on a loaded night! NJPW’s ‘Dominion’ 2024 will be broadcast on Friday June 14th at 8pm.

CARD HIGHLIGHTS

Double Main Event I: IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Lumberjack Match- EVIL vs Jon Moxley

While Jon Moxley’s victory over Tetsuya Naito to lift the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship in Chicago this April was met with considerable debate from both AEW and NJPW fans, one cannot doubt Moxley’s willingness to fight to defend what the championship represents to him. In the US and Japan, Moxley has quickly seen his reign grow to V3, with his mentor and protege bout against Shota Umino at Resurgence truly representing what the IWGP standard should be. Will justice be brought to EVIL, or will a new dark era begin?


Double Main Event II: Best of the Super Jr. Final: El Desperado vs Taiji Ishimori

Top of the card in Osaka, the biggest Best of the Super Jr. tournament final in tournament history sees El Desperado face Taiji Ishimori. In a dramatic tournament that saw the future of the junior division highlighted, it’s nonetheless two of the division’s so called ‘big three’ that take to the final spot, and while both have reached the finals before, it’s perhaps this match that is the most ‘must win’ of their careers to date. For Desperado, ten years since his first BOSJ appearance, and in the same venue where he won his first IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, will everything come full circle in the main event?

The Extreme Channel offers viewers a broad spectrum of exclusive programming across extreme sports and lifestyle, from competitive winter sports to surfing, underwater and marine life exploration to MMA and professional wrestling.
