DDT became one of the top promotions in Japanese indie wrestling by creating a unique sports entertainment style, often parodying WWE, with a Japanese puroresu flair to the matches. DDT has had agreements with various MMA and professional wrestling promotions around the world.[citation needed] DDT's biggest event is Peter Pan, held each year since 2009.

In January 2020, DDT's parent company CyberAgent purchased Pro Wrestling Noah, with DDT's executives taking over Noah's operations and Noah's content appearing on DDT's streaming service.[2]

HistoryEdit

The promotion was founded by Shintaro Muto, Sanshiro Takagi, Kyohei Mikami and Kazushige Nosawa, after these four left Pro Wrestling Crusaders.[3] The promotion was named Dramatic Dream Team, its first event took place on January 31, 1997, in Tokyo. In 1999, DDT started producing pay-per-view digests of its product on DirectTV.[citation needed]

The cards' matches tend to be a mixture of Japanese lucharesu (a mix of lucha libre and traditional puroresu), worked shoot-style, hardcore brawling and comedy matches. DDT is in many ways a parody of American pro wrestling, particularly WWE, using over-the-top gimmicks (most notably Danshoku Dino) as well as unique match types including a hardcore match in a campsite (which featured use of bottle rockets as weapons), an "Office Deathmatch" (where the ring was set up to resemble a section of an office building, complete with cubicle walls and computers), and a "Silence Match" (where wrestlers were forbidden to make loud noises, resulting in slow-motion chops and punches and featuring the commentary team speaking in a faux-whisper).

The promotion then established their own governing body in 2000, the King of DDT, shortened as KO-D, creating the KO-D Openweight Championship, Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship and the KO-D Tag Team Championship. DDT also created their own tag team tournament the DDT Tag League. Later in 2003, Shoichi Ichimiya became the new president of DDT.[citation needed] On 2004, DDT rebranded to DDT Pro Wrestling kabushiki gaisha renaming the promotion to DDT Pro Wrestling. In October, DDT got a timeslot on Fighting TV Samurai, creating their regular broadcast program DDT Dramatic Fantasia.[citation needed] In 2005, indie promotion Union Pro Wrestling was revived by DDT.[4]

On December 28, 2005 Ichimiya retired from professional wrestling and announced his departure from DDT.[citation needed] This led to Sanshiro Takagi taking over the promotion as the new president. Then the company focused on the feud between the face stable Italian Four Horsemen and the heel stable Disaster-Box.[citation needed] In November 2006, DDT announced the creation of their fourth active title the DDT Extreme Division Championship. Later in 2007 DDT announced a working relationship with Dragon Gate. DDT and Dragon Gate held their first co-promoted show, Dramatic Dream Gate on April 18, 2007 in Shinjuku Face in Tokyo, Japan. DDT would later become a member of the Global Professional Wrestling Alliance. The group was established as a means to aid the many competing wrestling promotions in Japan. In 2009, DDT announced that they were going to become a stock company, turning their company from private to public.[citation needed] In March 2010, DDT announced a working relationship with Big Japan Pro Wrestling.[5] Later in March, Takagi announced the DDT48 (later renamed Dramatic Sousenkyo), which is a fan vote where the winner receives a shot for the KO-D Openweight Championship. Later that month Michael Nakazawa stepped down as the CEO of DDT and Amon Tsurumi became the general manager of the promotion.[citation needed] In 2011 DDT received the Fighting TV Samurai Indie's Job prize for having the best show the year, winning the Best Box Office Award.

In March 2012, DDT ended their DDT Dramatic Fantasia program.[citation needed] Later on April 2, DDT started to broadcasting to NicoNico creating the program DDT Wrestling Hour.[citation needed] On June 4, DDT launched another sub-brand named Tokyo Joshi Pro-Wrestling, which was exclusive to women's wrestlers.[6] DDT celebrated its 15th anniversary on August 18, 2012, by holding its first ever event in Nippon Budokan.[7] On December 23, 2012, DDT announced the creation of their fifth active title, the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Championship.[8] On January 17, 2013, DDT announced that Daisuke Sasaki had signed a contract to officially make DDT his home promotion, ending his days as a freelancer.[9][10] On April 17 DDT formed another sub-brand Ganbare☆Puroresu. On May 3, DDT's Max Bump event was broadcast live by Samurai TV. After that DDT launched a weekly program DDT Pro Wrestling Banzai, which was also broadcast by Samurai TV.[citation needed] On November 28, DDT announced a new project named DDT New Attitude which would be another sub-brand of DDT, functioning as a farm league for DDT.

On January 14, 2015, DDT opened a women's wrestling school with Makoto Oishi and Cherry as instructors.[citation needed] Later DDT announced the creation of their sixth active title, the King of Dark Championship, which would be "won" by the loser of a dark match. On June 23, DDT opened the Dropkick Bar which is a professional wrestling, boxing and mixed martial arts-themed sports bar. Professional wrestling personalities regularly make appearances at the bar. On August 17 it was announced that Union Pro would be folding after its 10th anniversary event on October 4.[11] Three days after its folding, Union was replaced by a new promotion named Pro-Wrestling Basara, which launched in January 2016.[12] In October 2016, DDT announced "DDT Universe", a new streaming service for events held by DDT, DNA, Basara, Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling and Ganbare☆Puroresu.[13] The service launched on January 23, 2017.[14] On April 30, 2017, announced the creation of their seventh active title, the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Championship, meant for teams of five wrestlers, the title is believed to be the first of its kind in professional wrestling.[15][16] with the inaugural champions crowned on August 20, 2017.[17]

On July 5, 2017, it was announced that DDT had entered into a partnership with Canada's Canadian Wrestling's Elite promotion.[18] On August 20 Danshoku Dino defeated Sanshiro Takagi in a match, where if Dino won he would become the Producer of DDT. After Dino won he fired the DDT's General Manager Amon Tsurumi and Turumi returned to a backstage role as assistant producer and reverted to his real name Hisaya Imabayashi. Dino also announced the creation of a new tournament called "D-Oh Grand Prix". On September 1, 2017, 100% of DDT's shares were sold to the CyberAgent company. Sanshiro Takagi remained as the DDT president, while CyberAgent director Takahiro Yamauchi took over as the new DDT director.

On June 11, 2019, DDT announced Basara would be splitting up from DDT and become an independent company starting January 1, 2020.[19]

On January 28, 2020, DDT's parent company CyberAgent purchased Pro Wrestling Noah. DDT's President Sanshiro Takagi was named the President of Pro Wrestling Noah and Naomichi Marufuji the Vice President. Noah's events began airing on DDT's streaming service DDT Universe starting with NOAH Global Jr. League 2020 on January 30.[20][21] On July 27, 2020, it was announced Noah and DDT would merge in a new company, CyberFight.[22]
