The DGUSA Open the United Gate Championship was a tag team championship within the Dragon Gate USA promotion. The first champions were World–1 (Masato Yoshino and Pac) and were crowned at United: Finale in the tournament final, which was held in Union City, New Jersey. It aired on March 11, 2011 on pay-per-view tape delay entitled United We Stand. The title is also recognized by Dragon Gate USA's parent promotion, Dragon Gate, and it has been defended at a Dragon Gate show in Japan. The title is also recognized by the Evolve promotion. On May 30, 2015, Gargano retired the titles after a title defense.

Being a professional wrestling championship, it is not won via direct competition; it is instead won via a predetermined ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a wrestling angle. Johnny Gargano and Rich Swann are the current champions in their first reign both individually and as a team

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.


A three day round robin tournament was held from January 28–30, 2011; which involved four teams. The four teams were World-1 members Masato Yoshino and Pac, Ronin members Johnny Gargano and Chuck Taylor, Blood Warriors members Naruki Doi and Ricochet, and Blood Warriors members Cima and Dragon Kid.

The tournament was a points based tournament with wins getting two points, a draw one point, and a loss was zero points.

Masato Yoshino and Pac 3 0 0 6
Johnny Gargano and Chuck Taylor 2 1 0 4
Naruki Doi and Ricochet 0 2 0 0
Cima and Dragon Kid 0 2 0 0
