ProductionEdit

StorylinesEdit

Wrestling Dontaku 2010 featured nine professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.[3]

EventEdit

In the third match, NJPW veteran Jushin Thunder Liger defeated Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) representative Negro Casas to win the CMLL World Middleweight Championship.[1] The event also featured the continuation of a three-way tag team rivalry between Bad Intentions (Giant Bernard and Karl Anderson), No Limit (Tetsuya Naito and Yujiro Takahashi) and Seigigun (Wataru Inoue and Yuji Nagata), with Seigigun capturing the IWGP Tag Team Championship from No Limit.[1] Pro Wrestling NOAH's Naomichi Marufuji successfully defended his IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship against Ryusuke Taguchi during the event.[1] In the main event, Togi Makabe, a decade after his first Wrestling Dontaku appearance, defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship for the first time.[1]
