There have been many Professional wrestling match types, sometimes called "concept" or "gimmick matches" in the jargon of the business, are performed in professional wrestling.
Because of WWE's long history over decades, many things have been recycled (many match types often being variations of previous match types). These match types can be organized into several loose groups.
Here is the full list
1. Singles Match: The singles match is the most basic of all professional wrestling matches, which involves only two competitors competing for one fall. Victory is obtained by pinfall, submission, Countout, Disqualification.
2. Blindfold match: In a Blindfold match, the two participants must wear a blindfold over their eyes for the entire duration of the match.
3. Battlebowl A two-ring shift on a battle royal, the wrestlers start in one ring and try to throw wrestlers into the second ring, after which they can be eliminated by being thrown out of that ring.
The last remaining wrestler in the first ring can rest until only one wrestler is left in the second ring, after which they fight in both rings until one is eliminated and a winner is declared, in a similar fashion to a double-elimination tournament. This was held by World Championship Wrestling at the 1991 Starrcade event, but future Battlebowl matches were contested under normal battle royal rules.
4. Battle royal The battle royal is a multi-competitor match type in which wrestlers are eliminated until only one is left.
5. Women's battle royal A women's battle royal is one which features female competitors. This variant may allow women to be eliminated by being thrown through or under the ropes as well as over the top rope, although WWE's first official women's Royal Rumble match in 2018 used the same rules as the men's version.
6. Ambulance match An Ambulance match is a match where the only way to win is for one wrestler to force their opponent into the back of an ambulance and close the door. The loser is then (in kayfabe) taken to the hospital.
7. Buried Alive match A Buried Alive match is in which the object is for one wrestler to throw his opponent into a grave dug out of a large mound of soil placed outside the ring. Once in the grave, the wrestler must bury his opponent in soil to the referee's discretion.
8. Casket match The casket match (originally known as the coffin match) has a casket near the ring, with the objective of the match being to trap the opposing wrestler in it. The coffin match was revived by The Undertaker and first appeared on television at the Survivor Series as the coffin match against Kamala.
9. Last Ride match A Last Ride match is a hardcore match in which the victory condition is for one wrestler to force their opponent into the back of a hearse, close the door, and drive it out of the arena.
When was the first Last Ride Match Played?
The first match of this type occurred at No Mercy when The Undertaker challenged John "Bradshaw" Layfield for the WWE Championship, although a match was held previously with similar stipulations.
Steel cage match: A steel cage match is a match fought within a cage formed by placing sheets of mesh metal around, in, or against the edges of the wrestling ring. The most common way of winning is by simply escaping the cage, either over the top of the cage wall and having both feet touch the arena floor, or by escaping through the cage door with both feet touching the arena floor.
Elimination Chamber match: is a steel cage with a grid-locked, chain-linked enclosure with support bars that surrounds the ring entirely, including creating a steel grated (later padded) floor area on the apron.
Inside the cage, at each turnbuckle, is a clear pod in which competitors in the match wait to join the match. As the name implies, this is an elimination-style match, so wrestlers are eliminated one-by-one via pinfall or submission until only one remain.
First Elimination Chamber Match
An Extreme Elimination Chamber took place at the 2006 December to Dismember pay-per-view, where each waiting wrestler was given a weapon.
Fight Pit match: A variation of a cage match where the ring is surrounded by a steel cell rather than ropes and turnbuckles, with a catwalk surrounding the top. The catwalk has metal railings surrounding the outer edge, which the wrestlers can climb up to and jump from. The match is won by submission or being unable to stand up at a 10-count.
When the Fight Pit match came into being?
The inaugural fight pit match was held during the May 27, 2020 episode of NXT, between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher (with Kurt Angle as a guest referee).
Hell in a Cell match A specific kind of enclosure match run by WWE inside a 4-sided cuboid made from open-weave steel mesh Chain-link fencing, which extends beyond the ring apron, leaving a gap between the edge of the ring and the cell wall.
Symphony of Destruction match: A Symphony of Destruction match is a match where various musical instruments are available at ringside as weapons. This is Elias's speciality match; it was first done in 2018 when Elias faced Braun Strowman.
Tables match: A Tables match is a match in which, to win, one's opponent must somehow be driven through a table with an offensive move by their opponent. It can only be won with an offensive maneuver.
What was the first Tables Match in WWE?
The first tables match in the WWE was a tag-team Tables match with The Hardy Boyz versus The Dudley Boyz (the latter were known for their pioneering use of tables in professional wrestling) at the 2000 Royal Rumble.
Winner Takes All match: A Winner Takes All match is a match in which both wrestlers (or teams if a tag team match) are champions going into the match, and the winner receives the championship of the loser, thus "taking all".
Winner Takes All match Rules
This differs from a championship unification match, where one championship is absorbed into the other and retired/deactivated. In a Winner Take All scenario, both titles are still active and defended as separate entities.
What is an Inferno match?
An Inferno match is (a type of no-disqualification, no-fall, no-countout match), the ring is completely surrounded by flames once both contenders have entered the ring.
WWE Inferno Match how to win
The only way to win is to set your opponent on fire. Inferno matches usually end on the outside of the ring; this way, paramedics can assist the unfortunate loser of the match.
How many Inferno matches were there?
There have only been six inferno matches in WWE Due to the potentially graphic or dangerous nature of this type of match, it is very rarely seen in North America, Kane is best known for his participation in the first five inferno matches.
The first WWF Inferno Match took place between Kane and The Undertaker at the 1998 Unforgiven pay-per-view, where special effects and pyrotechnics experts were brought in from Hollywood to set up and control the fire around the ring.
Kane had been thrown out of the ring and The Undertaker had no way of attacking him unless he too went out of the ring. The match ended in The Undertaker's victory.
Who won the Firefly Inferno match?
Randy Orton defeated The Fiend at the WWE TLC pay-per-view to win the Firefly Inferno match, which was fought off in the main event of the evening. Randy Orton won the match by setting The Fiend on fire.
Punjabi Prison match: The inner cage has a four-foot (1.2 m) by four foot door on each of its sides, with a referee standing by to open them at a wrestler's request. Each door may only be opened once and is only allowed to remain open for sixty seconds, after which it is padlocked. Should all four doors end up locked before the wrestlers escape, they are forced to climb out over the top, where the bamboo is fashioned into spikes.
Handicap match: A handicap match is any match pitting one wrestler or team of wrestlers against a team of wrestlers with numerical superiority such as two against one, three against two etc. Normally the babyfaces are outnumbered with the heels having more members on their team to provide an unfair advantage.
