During a recent Road To Wrestling Dontaku event, an interesting stipulation was made for a match taking place during the May event.
At Wrestling Dontaku, Zack Sabre Jr will is set to wrestle Tanga Loa of the Guerrillas of Destiny. This May 3 match will now decide the future of the IWGP Tag Team Championship scene.
NJPW have announced that if Sabre Jr wins this match, Dangerous Tekkers (Sabre Jr and Taichi) will earn a future IWGP Tag Team Championship match against the Guerrillas of Destiny. If Tanga Loa wins, Dangerous Tekkers will never be allowed to challenge for these tag titles again.
NJPW took to Twitter to relay the announcement, tweeting:
Stipulation added to ZSJ vs Tanga Loa May 3!
If Sabre wins, Dangerous Tekkers get a tag title match!

Dangerous Tekkers challenged for the IWGP Tag Team Championship at New Beginning In Hiroshima earlier this year. They came up short against the Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa, in which could be their final championship match as a team, unless ZSJ is successful at Wrestling Dontaku.
Wrestling Dontaku takes across 2 nights this year, on May 3 and 4. The May 4 show will be headlined by Will Ospreay defending the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship against Shingo Takagi. Jim Ross has recently discussed Ospreay’s potential if he was to sign with AEW.
