DDT is in many ways a parody of American pro wrestling, particularly WWE, using over-the-top gimmicks most notably Danshoku Dino as well as unique match types including a hardcore match in a campsite which featured use of bottle rockets as weapons , an "Office Deathmatch" where the ring was set up to resemble a section of an office building, complete with cubicle walls and computers , and a "Silence Match" where wrestlers were forbidden to make loud noises, resulting in slow-motion chops and punches and featuring the commentary team speaking in a faux-whisper. Then the company focused on the feud between the face stable Italian Four Horsemen and the heel stable Disaster-Box. The group was established as a means to aid the many competing wrestling promotions in Japan. In , DDT announced that they were going to become a stock company, turning their company from private to public. On June 23, DDT opened the Dropkick Bar which is a professional wrestling, boxing and mixed martial arts-themed sports bar. Professional wrestling personalities regularly make appearances at the bar.
