Wrestle Kingdom 15 Night 1 is currently underway at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. There are several Championship matches taking place over the two nights. IWGP Tag Team Champions Dangerous Tekkers (Zack Sabre Jr and Taichi) defended their championships against G.O.D (Guerillas of Destiny) on the second match of the card.
Guerillas of Destiny vs Dangerous Tekkers
Hyping the match, NJPW1972.com would discuss how Guerillas of Destiny finally won the World Tag League back in December 2020. “The six time IWGP Tag Team Champions had consistently been denied the World Tag League trophies until, with a little help from KENTA, they defeated FinJuice in the Nippon Budokan to finally break a long standing curse on December 11.”
Result – Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa took the win after Tonga Loa hit a sit-out tombstone piledriver. There was a ton of shenanigans in the finish but it was a great match overall.
