CIMA - The current Champion of Dragon Gate in Japan and known as "The Dragon Gate Icon" in Dragon Gate USA. Currently half of the DGUSA Open The United Gate Champions with Ricochet. One of the most well rounded and best wrestlers in the world.
Ricochet - The 2011 break out star in both the United States and Japan. Won an unheard of three championships in his first year in Japan in addition to being one half of the current DGUSA Tag Team Champions with CIMA. Known for his cockiness as well as his incredible athleticism and aerial ability.
Masaaki Mochizuki - A true veteran and one of the most respected wrestlers in Japan. Placed high in almost every 2011 year end awards for wrestler of the year after holding Dragon Gate's top title. Possesses incredible kicks and submission skills.
Low Ki - On a quest to "take my profession back" and will do so in Dragon Gate USA and EVOLVE. Has held titles all over the world and won season two of WWE NXT as Kaval. Opponents fear his kicks, strikes and double stomp.
Akira Tozawa - Considered one of the most outstanding wrestlers of 2011. Has incredible charisma and an instant connection with any crowd. Puts opponents away with suplexes.
BxB Hulk - Was the first DGUSA Champion and had an impressive title reign. Now has a darker look and meaner attitude. Can fly or go kick for kick with any opponent.
