OverviewEdit

Throughout the history of the championship, the title was vancated 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.
