Elimination Chamber

The Elimination Chamber is a professional wrestling elimination-based match held in the WWE. The match was created by Triple H and was introduced by Eric Bischoff in November 2002. It features a large chain-linked circular steel structure which encloses the ring. The chambers floor is platformed over the ringside area which elevates it to ring level. Within the chamber are four inner enclosures outside each ring corner. While similar in profile and nature to WWEs original large scale steel-structured match Hell in a Cell, the Elimination Chamber match is a multiple participant match wherei ...

Feast or Fired

Feast or Fired is a professional wrestling match concept featured in Impact Wrestling. The idea is based on the object on a pole match, which sees wrestlers trying to gain possession of items hanging from poles attached to the ring posts. In this case, the participants in the match try to grab one of four briefcases from the poles. In the match itself, wrestler can only claim a briefcase if he/she leaves the ring with it and both feet touch the floor.

"I quit" match

An "I quit" match is a type of professional wrestling match in which the only way to win is to make the opponent say the words "I quit". It is a variation of submission match as it can only be won by submission, but it is special in that the submission has to take the form of the forfeiting opponent saying "I quit". Generally, whenever a wrestler knocks down their opponent with a move or inflicts a submission move, the opponent will be asked - either by the referee or the opponent - to say the words into a microphone. "I quit" matches are commonly used to settle kayfabe grudges and embarra ...

Iron man match

An iron man match is a professional wrestling match type that is set to go a specific amount of time, usually 30 or 60 minutes, with the competitor with the most falls at the end of that time named the victor. On the occasions of a draw, a sudden death "final fall" may be requested by either side, with the other able to accept or decline, or an authority can order the match to go into overtime in the case of any championship match.

Ladder match

A ladder match is a type of match in professional wrestling, most commonly one where an item is hung above the ring, and the winner is the contestant who climbs a ladder and retrieves the item. The ladder itself becomes a key feature of the match, as wrestlers will use the ladder as a weapon to strike the opponent, as a launching pad for acrobatic attacks, and frequently these matches include impressive falls from the top of the ladder. However, there were very few matches in which the hung item must be used in a special manner in order to win the match, such as striking the opponent with ...

Tables, ladders, and chairs match

A tables, ladders, and chairs match, often abbreviated as TLC, is a type of professional wrestling match that originated within the World Wrestling Federation. The TLC match is a variation of the ladder match, which is modified to co-emphasize two other weapons: tables and chairs. The aim is to buy the product, usually a championship belt, which starts the match suspended above the ring. A TLC match can be seen as a more complicated ladder match, where tables and chairs, along with ladders, can also be used as legal foreign objects. Another TLC match that also could exist as a kind of hard ...
