profile_harashimaHARASHIMA is currently one of the most popular wrestlers in DDT and also one of the promotion’s aces. An 8-year veteran, he first debuted in DDT as the masked wrestler HERO! and, while using that persona, won 2 KO-D Tag Team Titles with KUDO. In 2005 he became Darkside HERO! and won a 3rd KO-D Tag Team Championship. He unmasked and became HARASHIMA in 2006 and won his first KO-D Openweight Championship at the end of the year. He successfully defended several times before dropping the title to Koo, but would win a rematch to become a 2-time champion. He defended it twice before losing it in a 5-way match. Over the next year he briefly turned heel and changed his name to JARASHIMA as part of an angle involving his being controlled by Poison Sawada JULIE, but before too long he broke free and turned back to face and became HARASHIMA once again. He won another KO-D Tag Team Title and his 3rd KO-D Openweight Title as well, and held the Openweight Title until losing it to Kota Ibushi in August 2009 in a Match Of The Year candidate. He also held the Jiyugaoka 6-Man Tag Championship twice, and has held every DDT Title except the DDT Extreme Championship.
