It has been a while now since former Toryumon and Dragon Gate ace Magnum TOKYO made his return to pro-wrestling, after an injury hiatus sent him to South America to teach judo. His return, however, saw him enter the HUSTLE ring instead of the Dragon Gate one, but under the name Detective Alan Kuroki. He has since recently dropped this gimmick and returned, full time, to Magnum TOKYO.
Now, as a DG fan it is easy to get excited about this. However, he is a full time wrestler for HUSTLE so we won’t be seeing him make his way to the Dragon System anytime soon. But, Dragon Gate would be a better place if he were to ever decide to come back. His personality and flare in the ring are major parts of what made Toryumon what it was. Some may not have necessarily liked this *cough*SUWA*cough*, but it allowed Toryumon to stand out from the other indys that were trying to make headway at the time.
While I’m all for bringing the new guys up into the spotlight, if there are spots for CIMA and Mochi at the top of the card there should definitely be a spot for Magu. Really, if anyone has epitomized the spirit of Toryumon, it is Magnum TOKYO. Come back Magu, we miss you!
