Magnus winning the 2012 Young Dragons Cup

The Young Dragons Cup, also known as the Torneo Copa Dragon Juvenil, is an annual singles tournament held in Toryumon Mexico to showcase the Ultimo Dragon Gym students. It began as a traditional single-elimination tournament until 2006, when it was changed to using the toreno cibernetico format. The tournament was generally held in the last month of the calendar year, although the fifteenth tournament was moved to the beginning month of the following year due to the promotion running a limited number of shows.

Torneo Cibernetico

The torneo cibernetico format is a style of elimination system frequently used in Lucha Libre promotions. The participants are split into 2 teams. The match uses the standard Lucha Libre tag team rule where eliminations occur by pinfall, submission, disqualification, or count out. A special "battling" system is used, during which wrestlers are given a specific order and may only tag in and out in that order. The remaining two wrestlers, regardless of whether or not they may have been on the same team, then face off in a singles match to determine the winner.
