Storylines[edit | edit source]

The Gate of Origin (2020) featured professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.

R.E.D (Kazma Sakamoto, Kento Kobune, and Takashi Yoshida), who defended the the Open The Triangle Gate Championship at the event

The event was main evented by R.E.D (BxB Hulk and KAI) defending the Open The Twin Gate Championship against Dragon Gate (Kzy and YAMATO). On November 15 at Kobe Pro-Wrestling Festival, Hulk and KAI defeated Kota Minoura and YAMATO to win the vacant Open The Twin Gate Championship. After the match, KAI and Hulk began attacking Minoura and YAMATO, until their Dragon Gate stablemate Kzy made the save. Afterwards, Kzy and also on YAMATO's behalf challenged KAI and Hulk to a title match at Gate of Origin. KAI had previously turned on Dragon Gate at Dangerous Gate during the six-way steel cage survival match.

Also at Kobe Pro-Wrestling Festival, R.E.D (Kazma Sakamoto, Takashi Yoshida, and SB KENTo) successfully defended the Open The Triangle Gate Championship against Dragon Gate (Ben-K, Yosuke♡Santa Maria, and U-T) and Toryumon (Dragon Kid, Kagetora, and Masato Yoshino) in a three-way match. Afterwards, SB KENTo began berating Yoshino's retirement, before entering in a heated confrontation with the rest of Yoshino's Toryumon stablemates, who felt disrespected by R.E.D. Yoshino's Toryumon stablemates Genki Horiguchi and Susumu Yokosuka also made their intentions of challenging for the Open The Triangle Gate Championship.
