New champions are going to be crowned in the coming weeks. 

DDT Pro-Wrestling’s May 21st show featured the conclusion of the 2023 King of DDT tournament. Before the main event, there was a Death Match for the Extreme Championship. 

Shunma Katsumata successfully defended his title against Hideki Okatani. DDT provided an update on the status of Katsumata and revealed that he suffered a fracture in his right ankle. He’ll be out of action for the foreseeable future. 

Due to Katsumata’s injury, he is relinquishing the DDT Extreme and KO-D Tag Team Championships that he held with MAO. 

EXTREMEとKO-Dタッグ返上という形になりました。
また絶対にこのベルトを手に入れる。
また応援してください。

MAOちゃん、そしてMAOのファンの皆さん本当にごめん。
でも復帰したら絶対にしゅんまおでまた狙いに行くから。
それまで待っててください。#ddtpro https://t.co/R8v0MMm3fA
