What is Professional Catch Wrestling?
Catch wrestling is arguably the father of modern grappling, professional wrestling, mixed martial arts and no-holds-barred competition. Catch wrestling's origins lie in a variety of styles, most notably the regional wrestling styles of Europe, particularly the British Isles and Asia. The term is sometimes used in a restricted sense to refer only to the style of professional wrestling as practiced in United States carnivals just before and after 1900. Under this stricter definition, "catch wrestling" is one of many styles of professional wrestling, specifically as practiced in carnivals and at public exhibitions from after the American Civil War until the Great Depression.

Where Does Catch Wrestling come from?
Rough and tumble fighting was the original American no holds barred underground hybrid "sport" that had but one rule - you win by knocking the man out or making him say "enough." All techniques were allowed. Later when the Lancashire wrestling style made it to the US and was blended with the "rough and tumble" mentality, and the gambling involved, the very aggressive American catch-as-catch-can style of wrestling emerged and created some of the most outstanding grapplers in the word. Much of today's MMA fighting concepts can be traced to these early "shooters."

What should I expect from a Professional Catch Wrestling show?
If your looking for a cartoon, you may want to stay home. This is sport, in it's purist form. Two men, no equipment, striving to defeat one another. The Sport of Kings. We promise action, violence, and excitement in a format most have never seen before. Imagine Mixed Martial Arts using the personalities you've come to expect from Professional Wrestling. Imagine Professional Wrestling, but with more contact... more realism.. more competitiveness. If you like hearing people bitch, moan, whine and complain... you may want to stay home. If you enjoy seeing someone get their head knocked off... this may be the show for you.
