The Open the Dream Gate Championship is the top professional wrestling title in Japanese promotion Dragon Gate. The wrestler who holds it is considered the top singles wrestler in Dragon Gate. It was created on July 4, 2004 when CIMA was awarded the title as a result of being the last Último Dragón Gym Champion. The title belt's face has a "gate" on it which contains a plate with the titleholders' name. Any official challenger for the belt carries a key used to open the gate with, and should they win the title, then they can open the gate and put their name inside it. However, if the title is successfully defended, then the key is added to the belt as a symbol of that successful defense. There have been a total of 13 recognized champions who have had a combined 20 official reigns.

Title reigns are determined either by professional wrestling matches between different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds, plots, and storylines, or by scripted circumstances. Wrestlers were portrayed as either villains or heroes as they followed a series of tension-building events, which culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches for the championship.

Reigns

The inaugural champion was CIMA, who was awarded the championship by being the last Último Dragón Gym Champion. The longest reign is 574 days, by CIMA. As of August 2017, YAMATO is the current champion in his fourth reign.
