NJPW reveals stipulation for Sabre vs. Loa at Wrestling Dontaku

NJPW has added a stipulation to the Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Tanga Loa singles match scheduled for night one of Wrestling Dontaku on May 3. 

If Sabre beats Loa, Sabre and Taichi will earn an IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship match against Guerrillas of Destiny (Loa and Tama Tonga). If Sabre loses, Sabre and Taichi (Dangerous Tekkers) are never allowed to challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Titles again. 

Loa proposed the stipulation on Tuesday's Road to Wrestling Dontaku event at Korakuen Hall after pinning Sabre in a trios match. 

G.O.D. beat Dangerous Tekkers for the IWGP Tag titles at Wrestle Kingdom 15 on January 4, then beat them again in a rematch at The New Beginning in Hiroshima on February 10.

Tonga and Taichi are already set for a ladder match on night one of Dontaku, with Takashi Iizuka's iron fingers of death hanging in the balance.
