Current Champion(s) Over Generation
(CIMA & Dragon Kid)
Date Won November 3, 2016
Promotion(s) Dragon Gate
Date Established October 12, 2007


The Open The Twin Gate Championship is the top tag team championship in Dragon Gate. It succeeded the International Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship (or I-J Heavyweight Tag Team Championship for short) that had previously been revived from the defunct Wrestle and Romance (WAR) promotion.

Overview

The development of the championship was funded through the prize money Naruki Doi and Masato Yoshino earned for winning the inaugural Summer Adventure Tag League in 2007. Once the belts had been commissioned, Doi and Yoshino faced reigning I-J Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Keni'chiro Arai and Taku Iwasa to not only decide the first Twin Gate Champions, but to also unify the two tag team championships.

The first set of the title belts was blue in strap color with silver plates barring the flags from Japan, America, and Mexico. Since then, they have been replaced with belts that are black in strap color with gold plates.
