M2K

From Luchawiki

M2K was a Toryumon Japan stable that formed from a tag team in IWRG in 1999 as a tag team. Susumu Mochizuki and Yasushi Kanda teamed in IWRG before returning Japan in January 2000. When they returned to Japan, they started to feud with Crazy MAX leading Masaaki Mochizuki to join the group. They wrestled several Toryumon Mexico shows. There have been three versions through out the history of Toryumon Japan and Dragon Gate before sealing for good in January 2007. The first version was a true rudo group that ended in 2002 after Kanda got injured in 2001, Mochizuki was kicked out because of him acting like a tecnico rather than a rudo during El Numero Uno 2002, Magnum Tokyo was brought in, K-ness was kicked out after a mask match loss and Yasushi Kanda became a referee after a neck injury, the second with only Masaaki Mochizuki from the original unit was a revamped edition of the Toryumon Sekigun (mainly Keni'chiro Arai and Dragon Kid) and were tecnicos did not translate well with fans, while the third combined members from the two previous M2K units and lasted until K-ness goes down with an injury (again) and Mochizuki, Susumu, Arai and Yamato Onodera move onto other projects.
