DDT’s Dark Knight Returns


It’s a dark day, puropals. DDT has a new King of Dark Champion, and once again it’s Gota Ihashi.

Ihashi briefly freed himself of the King of Dark title on June 6 at King of DDT 2015 Saitama, defeating Suguru Miyatake. Despite losing the belt, Ihashi never truly escaped the darkness as his next two matches were still dark matches. Ihashi defeated Miyatake in the obligatory rematch at DDT Road to Ryogoku in Fuji on June 13. However, in an unnecessary third encounter at King of DDT 2015 Osaka on June 14, Miyatake successfully lost the title back to Ihashi with the Heart Attack.

Stay strong, Ihashi. I hope your second reign as King of Dark Champion is shorter than your first. Even you can find the light at the end of the tunnel. You’ve just got to keep looking forward.
