Toryumon Generation, commonly abbreviated as Toryumon (闘龍門, Tōryūmon) is a professional wrestling stable in the Dragon Gate (DG) promotion. The stable was founded on December 18, 2019, by Último Drágon and his students that were trained by him as part of the class of Ultimo Dragon Gym graduates.

The stable was founded after Último Drágon entered a feud with villainous stable R.E.D, leading him to be joined by his former students. Afterwards, the stable became part of a feud with Dragon Gate and R.E.D in a "Generation War". His former suspended their own stables in order to unite all wrestlers from the Toryumon generation to form the stable. During the "Generation War", the stable was joined by Toryumon original Shuji Kondo. As part of the storyline, Naruki Doi brought the Open The Dream Gate Championship, while Dragon Kid, Ryo Saito and Kenichiro Arai brought the Open The Triangle Gate Championship to the stable.

History

Background

During Último Drágon's time working for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in the United States, Dragón decided to open up a wrestling school to give Japanese hopefuls the chance to learn the Mexican Lucha Libre style. The wrestling school operated after the same principles of a university, divided into classes with several terms where wrestlers would "graduate" (debut) at the same time. The first class of Último Dragón Gym graduates began their own promotion, Toryumon Japan, while the second class of graduates called their promotion Toryumon 2000 Project, which primarily used a submission based style called Llave (Spanish for "Key" the Lucha libre term for submission locks). T2P ran until January 27, 2003, when the roster was absorbed into Toryumon Japan. In June 2004, Último Dragón left the promotion altogether and took the Toryumon name and trademarks with him since he owned the rights. Subsequently, Toryumon Japan changed its name to Dragon Gate, continuing the traditions of Toryumon Japan including references to Último Dragón.

Formation

In July 2019, Último Drágon returned to Dragon Gate as part of the celebration of its 20th anniversary, when the promotion was founded as Toryumon Japan. Afterwards, one of his former students began asking Drágon to join the promotion full-time, leading him to accept. In September, Drágon began a feud with R.E.D, leading him to be joined by his former students Darkness Dragon, Ryo Saito, and Super Shisa. On October 8, Dragón, Saito, Shisa and Darkness Dragon defeated R.E.D. Afterwards, Dragón joined by his former students Kenichiro Arai, Yasushi Kanda (who turned on R.E.D) and later "brother" YASSHI, Genki Horiguchi, and Susumu Yokosuka continuing a series of matches between the two sides. On December 4, Dragón defeated Eita by disqualification, after Eita removed Dragón’s mask. Afterwards, R.E.D attacked Dragón until his former students Naruki Doi and Masato Yoshino made the save. The Green and Red Masked Demons were forced to a match, leading Dragón, Doi, and Yoshino to face Eita, Red and Green Mask Demons to face in a losing effort, after Kaito Ishida revealed himself to be the Green Masked Demon, turning on MaxiMuM

During the event, Saito and Dragon Gate's Strong Machine J pinned one-third of the Open The Triangle Gate Champions H.Y.O. Afterwards, Arai, Kid, and Saito challenged R.E.D to a match for the Open The Triangle Gate Championship. Also in the event, Doi was challenged by Dragon Gate's Kzy to a match for his Open The Dream Gate Championship. Later that night, Yoshino revealed Shuji Kondo to be the stable newest member, after Yoshino challenged the Dragon Gate duo of Ben-K and YAMATO and the R.E.D's duo of BxB Hulk and Eita to match.
