BIOGRAPHY

Debuting in 2008 ,Tanga Loa has an extensive career wrestling in the independent promotions in America, as well as in the WWE and TNA. Being the son of the legendary wrestler King Haku and Tama Tonga’s younger brother, Tanga Loa has an unparalleled  wrestling upbringing. Standing taller than his older brother, he has perfected the running Samoan drop and other powerful throws.

Loa made his NJPW debut in March of 2016. Along with his brother, he formed the Guerillas of Destiny, impressing many by winning the IWGP Tag Team Championships by beating The Briscoes on their first attempt at the titles. GoD would continue to evolve throughout the year, and while GoD would lose that year’s World Tag league finals against the GBH combination of Tomoaki Honma and Togi Makabe, they showed their no-nonsense, hardcore brawling worth. 

The WTL would continue to evade GoD as they lost in the finals in both 2017 and 2018, but the team quietly became the franchise of the IWGP Tag Team ranks. As of spring 2019, they were five time IWGP Tag Team  Champions, felling greats like the Young Bucks and EVIL and SANADA to hold the tag team gold more than any team in history, the only exceptions being Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan.

At G1 Supercard in Madison Square Garden in April 2019, GoD found themselves in a four way tag team match with both IWGP and ROH Tag Team Championships on the line, and walked out with the win, and both sets of titles. From there, G.o.D. went on to defend their titles against the Most Violent Players, EVIL & SANADA and Juice Robinson & Mikey Nicholls giving them the most successful title defenses since Guns & Gallows earlier in the decade.
