Date Retired December 7, 2003

The British Commonwealth Junior Heavyweight Championship was a championship that was promoted in the Toryumon promotions from March 10, 2001 to December 7, 2003. It was inherited from New Japan Pro Wrestling and become the secondary singles championship in Toryumon Japan.

Overview

The British Commonwealth Junior Heavyweight Championship was created in April 1995 and was intended to be a championship based in England. It was later defended in Japan, where Great Sasuke won the title on September 25, 1995. Afterward, it would go on to be primarily defended in Michinoku Pro Wrestling before it was combined with seven other championships to form the J-Crown Championship. The J-Crown would end on October 5, 1997 as championships would be withdrawn or vacated primarily due to the World Wrestling Federation demanding the return of their Light Heavyweight Championship.

An attempt was made to return the championship back to England, but later Tiger Mask IV would win the title and bring it with him to New Japan. Masaaki Mochizuki defeated him for the title on March 10, 2001 and it would become a Toryumon championship. There would be times where it would take prominence over the NWA World Welterweight Championship as the likes of Mochizuki and Magnum TOKYO held the title. Nevertheless, it was ultimately abandoned in December 7, 2003. The belt has not resurfaced since.
