After being absent for most of the year due to the pandemic the Guerrillas of Destiny continued their NJPW comeback defeating the current IWGP Tag Team Champions, Dangerous Tekkers (Taichi and Zack Sabre Jr.) at the World Tag League tournament.
Before the Suzuki-gun team could jump start the match as they usually do, the Guerrillas beat the snot out of Taichi as he was singing his lousy song. Zack Sabre Jr. came running down the entrance way to save his partner as he was stomped and kicked into the mat.
“You cheeky bastards!” yelled the World’s Most Electrifying Wrestler as he dove through the ropes so that the Guerrillas could swarm and maul him too.
Despite the mugging going on the official calls for the bell to be rung. The brawl went to floor where all four men fight up the entrance way. Taichi slammed Loa into a corner of the stage. Everyone ends up throwing hands on the stage as Red Shoes pleads with them to return to the ring.
Once back in the ring, Suzuki-gun took over with the match resembling a Tornado Tag Team rather than a regular tag team match. Taichi took Tonga outside choking him with an electrical cord. The match went back to the stage where the Guerrillas were put in dueling submission holds. The Tekkers raced back to the ring hoping G.O.D. would be counted out. The Guerrillas barely beat the count.
Taichi choked out Loa with his microphone stand until Gedo came from behind to choke out him with his kendo stick. Taichi blocked Jedo’s attack by using the microphone stand to knock away his kendo stick. Taichi kicked him in the “lower abdomen” and threw him out of the ring.
Loa nailed Taichi with the microphone stand. Sabre Jr. beat Loa with the kendo stick. Tonga blasted Zabre Jr. with Taichi’s Iron Claw pinning him.
The winners of World Tag League face the champions at Wrestle Kingdom in January.
