Robert Glasier - Mar 25, 2021

Jun Akiyama stands on top of DDT as a dominant KO-D Openweight Champion.

KO-D Ten Man Tag Titles
Robert Glasier - Dec 22, 2020

The KO-D Ten-Man Tag titles are a strange belt even by DDT standards. Introduced in 2017 there have only been three matches for the title with both of the champions vacating the straps.
