The O-40 Championship (O-40王座 ōbā fōtī ōza) is a professional wrestling championship in the Japanese promotion DDT Pro-Wrestling. The title was established in 2019 during the 2019 Wrestle Peter Pan, which Sanshiro Takagi became the inaugural champion. The O-40 Championship was created by Super Sasadango Machine to provide a title for wrestlers over the age of 40.
History[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
In June 2019, Sanshiro Takagi and Super Sasadango Machine were putting together their match for the 2019 Wrestle Peter Pan, Sasadango felt a championship was needed to make it important, but he also wanted to inspire the DDT fans of their age and tell them they could still perform. The idea was a parody of NJPW's IWGP U-30 Openweight Championship that existed during the mid 2000s.
