The stakes have been raised at NJPW Wrestling Dontaku.
NJPW announced a new stipulation for the May 3 bout between Zack Sabre Jr. and Tanga Loa. If ZSJ wins, he and Taichi will earn a shot at The Guerrillas of Destiny (Tanga Loa & Tama Tonga) and the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Titles. If Tanga Loa wins, Dangerous Tekkers can never again challenge for the IWGP Tag Team Championships.
May 3 sees night one of Wrestling Dontaku and a pair of singles matches between the members of Dangerous Tekkers and the Guerrillas of Destiny. Tama Tonga and Taichi will face off in the second ladder match in NJPW history with the Iron Fingers From Hell hanging in the balance; one or the other will take the cursed fingers and earn the right to forever cast them away. Yet Zack Sabre Jr.’s singles bout with Tanga Loa will also have consequences at play.
After ZSJ pinned Tanga Loa at Sakura Genesis on April 4, Loa stated that Sabre would be unable to challenge he and Tama Tonga for the IWGP Tag Team Championships again unless Sabre could defeat him one on one. Last night at Korakuen, Loa again raised the stakes, and an official stipulation has been set.
Should Zack Sabre Jr. defeat Tanga Loa in Fukuoka, Dangerous Tekkers will be granted a future tag team title opportunity against the Guerrillas of Destiny. However, if Loa should win this match, Dangerous Tekkers can never again challenge for the IWGP Tag Team Championships.
With the very future of the Dangerous Tekkers tag team at stake, what will happen on May 3? Find out live on NJPW World!
