|Dia in December 2019|
Dragon Dia (ドラゴン・ディヤ Doragon Diya) is a Japanese professional wrestler, trained and currently working for Dragon Gate (DG), where he is currently one-third of the Open The Triangle Gate Champions in his first reign.
Dia was trained by the Dragon Gate Dojo and made his debut in November 2018, becoming Dragon Kid's protègè, with his real name not being a matter of public record, as is often the case with masked wrestlers where their private lives are kept a secret from the wrestling fans. Initially, Dia didn't had much success, working mostly on the undercard, losing most of his matches to other, more experienced wrestlers to give him some in-ring, televised, experience. After all Dragon Gate generation wrestlers united as party of a feud with their counterparts Toryumon and R.E.D in a "Generation War", Dia started being pushed up the card and beginning winning more consistently, leading him to win the Open The Triangle Gate Championship in February 2020.

On December 5, 2019, Dia was invited to join Mochizuki Dojo, but he rejected, justifying that Dragon Kid was his only trainer and he needed to gain more weight. On December 18, Dia achieved an important victory, after teaming with his mentor Dragon Kid in a winning effort against Natural Vibes ("brother" YASSHI and Susumu Yokosuka, after Dia pinned Yokosuka. Afterwards, Dia became part of the Dragon Gate stable in order to unite all Dragon Gate generation of wrestlers against Toryumon and R.E.D in a "Generation War". Afterwards, Dia started being pushed up the card, beginning winning more consistently against veterans and more established wrestlers such as Big R Shimizu, Genki Horiguchi and Kagetora. In January 2020, Dia and his Dragon Gate stablemate Kzy took part in a tournament to crown the new Open The Twin Gate Champions, losing to eventual winners R.E.D duo of BxB Hulk and Kazma Sakamoto in the semifinals of the tournament on January 15.
