KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Championship

The KO-D (King of DDT) 6-Man Tag Team Championship (KO-D6人タッグ王座, KO-D roku-nin taggu ōza) is a professional wrestling championship owned by the DDT Pro-Wrestling promotion. As the name of the title suggests, it is meant for tag teams of three wrestlers. The title was first announced during DDT's year-end event on December 23, 2012, becoming the promotion's fifth active title.[1] DDT had previously promoted matches for the DDT Jiyugaoka Six-Person Tag Team Championship, the DDT Nihonkai Six-Man Tag Team Championship and the UWA World Trios Championship, but although all three titles were last held by DDT wrestlers, none of them have been seen in the promotion since the end of 2010.[8][9] The inaugural KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions were determined on January 12, 2013, in a four-team single-elimination tournament, which saw Team Dream Futures (Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie and Soma Takao) defeat Team Shiro (Akito, Makoto Oishi and Sanshiro Takagi) in the finals to win the title.[2] The title has also been defended in All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW) as part of a relationship between DDT and AJPW.[10]
