The return of Taichi’s valet Miho Abe has inspired the Dangerous Tekkers to another title reign. She was not the only person to accompany them to the ring during their IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship match against Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa) though. Suzuki-gun’s Douki offset Guerrillas’ manager Jado. Ringside was definitely a crowded space on night one of the Road to Dominion tour until Douki and Jado were eventually barred from the match. Abe was permitted to stay though.
A sneaky and dastardly Tama Tonga grabbed Abe from behind which lured Taichi to the floor. Loa struck from behind knocking a concerned Taichi to the arena floor. Tama forced Abe to watch as Loa brutalized Taichi. Sabre Jr. had his back rammed into the ringside barricade when he tried to even the odds for his partner. Abe screamed while Taichi was beaten some more.
The Guerrillas cut Taichi off from his corner for almost the entire match. Tama knocked the air out of him by slamming him on the ring apron. Abe had to help Taichi up so he could beat the count back into the ring. Zach was hot tagged in only to run into the brick wall that is Tonga Loa.
Zach escaped the Super Powerbomb and Taichi took out Tonga with a buzzsaw kick to the head. Loa suffered a Zack Mephisto and Sabre Jr. pinned Tonga with a Zack Driver to win the titles.
