The King of Gate (キング・オブ・ゲート Kingu Obu gēto?) is an annual tournament held in Dragon Gate. It's designed to determine the strongest wrestler of the year. It is the successor of El Numero Uno from Toryumon Japan. Where El Numero Uno was a round-robin tournament, King of Gate used the single-elimination format and it was originally used at the end of the year, that took place at the December shows following a hiatus in 2009 due to the Generation Warfare, the tournament was moved to Spring in 2010.

In 2016 Dragon Gate adopted a new system and it is a Round Robin tournament that is consisted by four blocks, with two points for a win, one for a draw, zero for a double count out and none for a loss. The wrestler finishing atop the points standings in the four blocks advance to the knockout stage, where the winner is determined in a head-to-head match. Matches in the King of Gate have a 20-minute time limit.

In the below results, (C) signifies the Open The Dream Gate Champion at the time of each tournament. Usually, the winners of the tournament earn a shot at the title, assuming they are not already the champions.

HistoryEdit

The tournament was formed in 2005 by Dragon Gate, following the Toryumon Japan split from Dragon Gate. It is the successor of El Numero Uno from Toryumon Japan. Where El Numero Uno was a round-robin tournament, King of Gate used the single-elimination format and it was originally used at the end of the year, that took place at the December shows. The winner, assuming they are not already the champion, receives an opportunity to wrestle for the Open The Dream Gate Championship not long after the tournament is over.

The King of Gate tournament had often been used as a platform for Dragon Gate to push their rising stars. Past winners include Ryo Saito, Naruki Doi, Shingo Takagi, BxB Hulk and YAMATO and others who have gone on to become wrestling superstars. Dick Togo became the first outsider to participate in the tournament and Austin Aries became the first gaijin to participate in the tournament. The 2007 tournament ended in controversy when Gamma was declared the winner by default due to CIMA's inability to continue after taking numerous kicks to the groin. Dragon Kid, who himself lost to Gamma by less than honorable means, demanded a rematch with Gamma and won, though he is not recognized as the winner of the tournament. In the 2008 tournament Shingo Takagi was scheduled to participate but decided to pull out as he was the reigning Open The Dream Gate Champion at the time. His spot would be filled by outsider Madoka, who won a battle royal. Following a hiatus in 2009 due to the Generation Warfare, the tournament was moved to Spring in 2010. In the 2012 edition of the tournament, CIMA was scheduled to participate but agreed to pull out and be replaced by Eita Kobayashi, who wanted to enter the tournament as his prize for winning the King of Chop tournament.

The only wrestlers who won the Open The Dream Gate Championship after winning the King of Gate were Ryo Saito, Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino and YAMATO. Most of the times the winners of the King of Gate after winning the tournament they failed to win the Open The Dream Gate Championship.

Since 2012 the winners of the King of Gate would receive their Open The Dream Gate Championship title shot at the Champion Gate In Hakata until 2015. In 2016 it was moved for the Kobe World Pro Wrestling Festival PPV. In 2016 Dragon Gate adopted a new system and it is a Round Robin tournament that is consisted by four blocks, covering twenty shows. During the round-robin portion, a win is worth two points, a draw is worth one, and a loss zero; all matches have a 20-minute time limit, if the matches ended in a double count-out none of the wrestlers receive any points.

2008Edit

The fourth King of Gate Tournament took place over the course of six days from December 2-19, 2008. Shingo Takagi was scheduled to participate, but decided to pull out as he was the reigning Open The Dream Gate Champion at the time. His spot would be filled by outsider Madoka, who won a battle royal on November 29 to earn an entry. Masato Yoshino was scheduled to participate in the tournament. However a match was made before the tournament even started between Veteran-gun (Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fujii and Magnitude Kishiwada) against Real Hazard (Gamma, Genki Horiguchi and Yasushi Kanda). If Veteran-gun won, Kishiwada would participate in the tournament and if Real Hazard won Kanda was going to participate in the tournament. Kishiwada won so he got Yoshino´s place. Naruki Doi the winner of the tournament went on defeating Shingo Takagi to win the Open The Dream Gate Championship, becoming the first wrestler to doing so. Ryo Saito was legitimately injured his right arm during his first round match with BxB Hulk. It was severe enough for the referee to call the match. Naoki Tanizaki's ring out loss to Don Fujii in the second round was caused by an intrusion from Cyber Kong.
