Toryumon 2000 Project, or T2P for short, was a promotion that ran in Japan consisting of the second class graduates of the Ultimo Dragon Gym. It is the sister promotion to Toryumon Japan and acted as its rival in 2002. When the promotion folded on January 27, 2003, it was absorbed into Toryumon Japan.


While the first class of Ultimo Dragon Gym graduates were starting up their own promotion in Japan, a second class of students were being trained back in Mexico. What would make this group of students stand out from their predecessors would be a greater emphasis in lucha libra-style submissions, or Llave. They would make their debut as a separate promotion on November 13, 2001.

In addition to their differing wrestling style, T2P would stand out for having matches contested within a six-sided wrestling ring as opposed to the standard four-sided. T2P would be the first promotion to use a six-sided ring, a concept that would later be adopted by Mexican promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) and United States promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). The group would successfully develop their own following and it created a debate among fans as to which class of Ultimo Dragon Gym graduates were better.

After a series of incidents with talent from both sides crossing over, they put together a pay-per-view show on September 8, 2002 with the majority of the matches seeing Toryumon Japan talent against T2P talent. Afterward, the two classes would mix together until T2P was formally closed on January 27, 2003 with all of its talent being absorbed into Toryumon Japan.
