EAW Empire is a professional wrestling television program for Elite Answers Wrestling that currently airs live on Thursday nights on FX in the United States. The show exclusively features matches between the company's female Elitists. The show is a companion to EAW's four other brands, Voltage, Showdown, Dynasty and Battleground. While the women are technically inter-branded competitors and can appear across all forms of EAW programming, the brand was created with the intention of giving them their own niche to shine.

History

EAW's Women's division entered a period of never before seen prosperity beginning in 2015 and extending into 2016, with the creations of the Empress of Elite and Empire Cup accolades, the introduction of the Specialists Championship, and the premiere True Vixens. As such, they continued to be provided with more platforms to elevate their public profile.

During an in-ring segment at Territorial Invasion 2016 prior to the second Empress of Elite finals, Hall of Famer Cleopatra returned to announce the conception of Empire. She also announced that she would serve as the brand's general manager. In early February 2017, it was announced that the brand would be getting its first supershow since the establishment of Empire, Malicious Intentions, which aired the following month. Another supershow, Terminus, aired on June 1, 2017. Manifest Destiny, a supershow which doubled as the brand's one-year anniversary show, took place on September 21, 2017. After running several successful supershows, Empire's first exclusive FPV, Bloodletter, was scheduled for December 9, 2017 and ultimately took place the following day on December 10. In 2018, the former Empire Cup was renamed the Iconic Cup. It was contested the first time at an eponymous supershow, the brand's fifth, on March 1, 2018.

Production

The Empire set that has been used since the program's inception is the same HD set that is utilized by the other EAW weekly shows. For the opening of the show, purple and pink pyrotechnics are used.

Championships and accomplishments

Being that Empire is a Women's-centric program, it is considered the "home" show for both Women's exclusive belts contested in EAW: the Women's World Championship and Specialists Championship. In addition, the show features the winners of Empress of Elite and the Iconic Cup (formerly the Empire Cup and the Vixens Cup). The show was previously the home brand of the Vixens Championship, prior to it being retired in December 2016.
