The Open the Dream Gate is the top championship in Dragon Gate. The belt itself is very unique. The name of the current champion is engraved onto a plate, which is then placed on the face of the belt. The plate itself is then protected by a locked gate. In order to become a challenger to the Dream Gate, one must first secure a Challenger’s Key. If the champion is able to successfully defend, he can add the losers’ key to the title belt as a trophy. If the challenger wins, the key will unlock the gate, allowing him to replace the old nameplate with their own.
The title lineage can be traced back to the UDG Title from Toryumon Japan. CIMA was the final UDG champion and was named as the first Dream champion when Dragon Gate began in 2004.
