Falls Count Anywhere

Description/Rules

A Falls Count Anywhere match is a match where decisions—pinfalls or submission—can take place in any location, negating the standard rule that they must take place inside the ring and between the ropes. As such, this also eliminates the usual "countout" rule. It should be noted that, as the match may take place in various parts of the arena, the "Falls Count Anywhere" provision is almost always accompanied with a "No Disqualification" stipulation to make the match a hardcore match, so as to allow wrestlers the convenience to use any objects they may find wherever they wrestle.

A variation of the rules state that once a pinfall takes place, the pinned wrestler must return to the ring within a specific amount of time—usually a count of 10 or 30 by a referee—or else lose. If the pinned wrestler makes it to the ring in this time, the match continues. Under these rules, all pinfalls must take place outside of the ring, technically making the match no longer falls count anywhere.

Occasionally, this stipulation is listed as having a specific territory in which falls count. Examples have included "anywhere in the building", "anywhere in Chicago", and "anywhere on the Gulf Coast".

LumberJack Match

Description/Rules

A Lumberjack match is a standard match with the exception that the ring is surrounded by a group of wrestlers not directly involved in it. These wrestlers, known collectively as lumberjacks—or lumberjills when they're female—are there to prevent the wrestlers in the match from fleeing the ring.[15] The groups of lumberjacks are typically split up into groups of faces and heels who occupy opposing sides around the ring. Usually, the "opposing" lumberjacks (that is, face lumberjacks if the wrestler is a heel, and vice versa) swarm the wrestlers if they leave the ring and force them back in it. Occasional interference from and scuffles among the lumberjacks are also not uncommon. Early lumberjack matches even featured the lumberjacks wearing stereotypical lumberjack clothing in keeping with the lumberjack theme, though this is generally no longer done.

A variation of this match is called a Canadian Lumberjack Match, in which the lumberjacks are equipped with leather straps. Another variation, the Extreme Lumberjack Match is competed under Extreme Rules and the Fan's Revenge Lumberjack match, allowed fans of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling to act as the lumberjacks for a match between Jeff Jarrett and Samoa Joe.

{move} Match

Description/Rules

A [move] match is a match where the first wrestler to perform a specific move is the winner. The move is usually a signature move of both wrestlers involved, in which case a stipulation can be added that the loser is no longer allowed to use the move—or on the case of large wrestlers a generic move (i.e. bodyslam) that is notoriously hard to perform on both wrestlers. The match usually takes the name of the target move (i.e. Chokeslam challenge, Bodyslam match) or is more genericized to "Finisher match" if both wrestlers are trying to perform their finisher to win.

A Variation is a Wrestler famous for a 'personalized' Submission hold offering anyone the opportunity to break it for a prize.

Scaffold Match

Description/Rules

A Scaffold match takes place, in whole or in part, on a piece of scaffolding erected above the ring. The match can end in one of two ways; either with one wrestler pushing another off of the scaffold to the ring below, or with a wrestler retrieving a flag from the opposite side of the scaffold and return it to theirs. Scaffold matches have a (legitimate) air of danger about them, as the bump from such a height is hard to protect against and objects such as card tables are placed in the ring to attempt to cushion the fall.

Elevation X, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's variation of the scaffold match, has two scaffolds placed above the ring intersecting to form an "X", with the only way to lose being to fall from the structure.

Strip Matches

Description/Rules

There are two kinds of matches which are contested where a wrestler doesn't win by pinfall or submission, but only by stripping their opponent of their clothing. The Bra and Panties match and the Tuxedo match. Historically, these types of matches were contested between managers or valets, due to their supposed lack of wrestling ability.


Bra and Panties match

A Bra and Panties Match is so named because it takes place between two female competitors and the winner is the first one to strip her opponent to nothing but their bra and panties. Some hardcore federations also use a Buck Naked match, in which the objective is to strip the opponent of all their clothing. An Evening Gown match ends the same way, but instead of the women starting out the match in regular clothing or ring attire they begin in the evening gowns of the title.


Tuxedo match

A Tuxedo match is usually contested between male managers and/or ring announcers. It is the precursor to the Bra and Panties match, and takes its name from the fact that both competitors begin the match dressed in a full tuxedo.

Weapons Match

Description/Rules

MAtches named for a single or group of weapons specifically legal The Following is a list with more specific rules than simply legalizing a particular weapon

Crazy 8

involves placing a championship belt at the top of a scaffold with the first wrestler to achieve it being declared the winner. Placed in and around the ring for the wrestlers to utilize during the match are a side of steel cage, two trampolines, and four rope swings.

Ladder Match

A Ladder match is a match where a specific object is placed above the ring — out of the reach of the competitors — with the winner being the first person to climb a ladder and retrieve it.

King of the Mountain

The King of the Mountain match is described as a "reverse ladder match". Instead of retrieving an object hanging above the ring, the winner is the first person to use a ladder to hang a championship belt above the ring—after having scored a pinfall or submission (pinfalls count anywhere) to earn the right to try. A wrestler who has been pinned or forced to submit must spend two minutes in a penalty box.

TLC

A Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match, often abbreviated to the simpler TLC match, is an extension of a Ladder match with chairs and tables also being present and legal weapons. (also called Full Metal Mayhem)

(Object) on a Pole match

The [Object] on a Pole match — whose name is usually derived from the object being hung; i.e. "Brass Knuckles on a Pole", "Singapore cane on a Pole" — is the spiritual forebear of the ladder match. In this case an object is placed on a pole that extends from one of the four turnbuckles on the ring with the wrestlers battling to reach it first. Unlike the ladder match, however, reaching the object doesn't usually end the match; it simply allows that wrestler to use it as a weapon. It should be noted that, in this match, disqualifications are in play; the weapon on the pole is merely an exception to the disqualification rule.
