    "Toryumon" to "Dragon Gate"

    Toryumon had a press conference along with the founder Ultimo Dragon on 2004/07/05 and announced that the group would be renamed "Dragon Gate" by "graduating" from the Ultimo Dragon Gym. The UDG Title also will be vacant and renamed.

    R.I.P Toryumon, Hello Dragon Gate.

    Well after UD joined the WWE, you had to have seen this coming.

    Better to change name than fold. But if they did where would all of the roster go?

    I don't undestand...



    Are they just not going to be putting on shows anymore, or are they putting them on under the name "Dragon's Gate"? What lead to this decision? Is the school still open? Does anyone have any details?

    Ok Dragon gate will be putting on shows, with the Japan and the T2P wrestlers, while the X wrestlers and the school will remain with Toryumon in Mexico.

    Those guys should just go to Mexico if they can't find work in Japan. I'd hate to see talent waisted in America again...

    I was wondering if this whole thing was amicable or not. From what I gather in this report, it is.

    From what I've read, they're going to be putting shows on in a giant tent called the "Dragon Gate Arena". A giant tent...

    Giant tent? I thought they had their own arena? Why are they in a tent?

    if you can't pay the rent, you sleep in a tent

    there is a theatre here in my town that played in a huge tent after the council cut their budget and they couldn't afford a venue. i really liked it, but they are now back in some building i haven't seen yet.

    Toyumon has changed it's name to Dragon Gate as it was said above... They have also renamed Uno Dos Tres Toryumon to Dragon Gate: Door Of The Dragon.
