King of DDT results

Might be a bit late posting this, but I don't follow DDT as much as I used to. More on that later.
DDT ran it's annual King Of DDT tournament last week, and the KUDO came out on top winning the tournament beating Daichi Kakimoto in the finals. Whether or not this will result in KUDO finally getting his shot and a run as KO'D champion remains to be seen, but I would personally like to see him have a run with the title cause he is one of the best talents in the company.
Other news coming out of the show is that Dick Togo is leaving the company and disbanding the Far East Connection group he had been affiliated with in the company. Should be interesting to see how things go now as interest in DDT hit a slump when Togo entered and the company became more of a standard promotion than the bizzare and wacky promotion that was loved by many and made it the darling of the Japanese indy scene.
