Gota Ihashi Sees The Light – New DDT King Of Dark Champion Crowned


Remember this day, for it marks the end of an era. As of June 6, 2015, Gota Ihashi’s epic reign as DDT King of Dark Champion is over. Yes, you read that correctly. It was not a typo. Kota Ibushi’s kayfabe family member is no longer the King of Dark Champion. Please take a moment to let this monumental news sink in. I’ll wait.

Are you ready to continue? Do you need another moment? Let’s press on then. Gota Ihashi was the first ever DDT King of Dark Champion. History was made when he won the title all the way back in February at DDT “Saitama Super DDT 2015″, and unsuccessfully retained the title in 11 defenses. Meaning he successfully lost 11 King of Dark title matches.


It was DDT “KING OF DDT 2015 SAITAMA”on June 6th, 2015 in front of a packed house 460 fans when Ihashi made history again. Ihashi faced off against Suguru Miyatake in his 12th defense of the title. Ihashi actually faced, and lost to Miyatake in his first successful defense of the title at DDT “Into The Fight 2015” in February. However, this time Ihashi’s (un)luck ran out when he pinned Miyatake after a Cross Body Attack in 3:43. Gota Ihashi is now free from DDT dark match purgatory.

Gota Ihashi’s revolutionary reign as DDT King of Dark Champion will be remembered by generations to come.

Welcome to the Land That Light Forgot, Miyatake. I hope you brought a flashlight.
