Date Won January 26, 2020
Promotion(s) DDT Pro-Wrestling
Date Established April 19, 2000

The KO-D Openweight Championship is the top singles championship in DDT Pro-Wrestling (DDT) promotion. "KO-D" is the acronym of DDT's governing body, the King of DDT. The title was introduced on April 19, 2000, after Masao Orihara defeated Sanshiro Takagi to become the first champion.

The championship has been represented by two different belts. The current second verison belt was introduced in January 2005. When the title was first created, all title matches had no time limit established but DDT eventually changed the rule over to a more traditional 60 minute time limit. Since 2009, DDT established the Right to Challenge Anytime, Anywhere, with wrestlers being granted a title shot at anytime and anywhere, with the title defenses being labelled as a "Cash In" match. Otherwise the usage of the rule was scheduled in advance and is treated as a regular title match.

Overview

Throughout the history of the championship, the title was vacated twice. The first time was after Nosawa was stripped of the title by the DDT Commissioner for not being appropriate as a champion. The second time was when Dick Togo suffered a tailbone injury. Antonio Honda then became the provisional champion. Togo then defeated Hondo in a unification match to become the undisputed champion. When the title was first created, all title matches had no time limit established but DDT eventually changed the rule over to a more traditional 60 minute time limit.

Overall, there have been 62 reigns shared among 30 wrestlers. Title changes happen at DDT-promoted events. Two non-Japanese wrestlers have held the title. The inaugural champion was Masao Orihara winning the title on April 19, 2000. Over his 9 reigns, HARASHIMA successfully defended the title 28 times, the most of any champion. The youngest champion is Konosuke Takeshita with 22 years old and he his the only champion with most successfull title defenses that were 12 and he his the longest reigning champion with 405 days.

In August 2018, Shigehiro Irie defended the title outside of Japan for the first on Dayton, Ohio, United States at Rockstar Pro Wrestling event Amped losing the title to Sami Callihan in a three-way match also involving Trey Miguel, while also becoming the first title change outside of Japan. Irie regained the title eight days later. On August 28, Meiko Satomura became the first female to become the KO-D Openweight Champion.
