What is Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match & Rules. This week on AEW Dynamite show Kenny Omega challenged Jon Moxley for the Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match. The match will take place at AEW’s upcoming pay-per-view Revolution on March 7, 2021. Now due to this match AEW Revolution pay-per-view have very high hopes because this is one of the brutal match types in wrestling history.
The Match was first introduced by the Japanese wrestling company which was founded 32 years ago in 1989. The company was called Frontier Martial-Arts wrestling in short FMW. Atsushi Onita was the founder of the company and he was also the active wrestler in the roster. The company stood for hard core and martial arts type of wrestling. That’s why most of the matches this company had were hardcor and martial arts types. Even though they had really great matches in their company, They could never solidify themselves as the greatest wrestling company in Japan.
That’s why on May 5, 1993. On their FMW Origin 4th anniversary pay-per-view event match card. Onita introduced a new match type to the wrestling audience which was the two definition of hard core match. On the pay-per-view night Onita faced Terry Funk in the first-ever Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match. The match was too brutal that’s why it was banned from showing in some parts of the world and Japan also.
As a result the company never had a chance to stand tall in the wrestling industry and they folded down the company in 2002. After sometime they launched FMW again in 2015 but now the company has no reputation as it had before.
There are mainly two types of this match one is normal and another one is with the time limit. Let’s talk about the normal match first.
Even though it’s called the normal match, by reading the following rules you can understand how brutal this match was.
As a result whenever any wrestler will touch or land on these barbed wires the exploits will explode and wrestlers will get serious burns. According to the old rules the good news is each side will explode only one time . There are no disqualifications in these types of matches and the winning way is the same as a normal match. Wrestlers can win this match with pinfall or submission.
These are the rules of a normal match and following are the rules for the same match with a time limit.
The rules of this match are the same as the first match. The only difference here is that this match will have a time limit. Once the all sides of the barbed wire exploits explode. The last 5 minutes time limit will begin. In that 5 the match must have a winner and if not then the wrestling ring will explode after the 5 minutes ended. Resulting in no contest means draw.
These are the rules for the same match with a time limit.
Now we will have to see how much AEW will change these rules according to their way because in modern times maybe the government won’t allow AEW to have such an extreme match on their televised pay-per-view.
