WAW Awards 2021 – Match of the Year

WAW Awards 2021 - Match of the Year

Above all else, wrestlers enter the squared circle with one thing in mind… winning. They might give it their all but not every wrestler gets their hand raised at the end of the match. When both competitors are prepared to give everything in pursuit of victory, the fans win as they watch the best wrestling matches WAW has to offer.

This award celebrates the matches our fans thought are worth watching again.

Benjamin versus Saraya Knight in a Four Corners Chain match
Sunday 24th October 2021

Saraya Knight took insult from Benjamin’s attempts to fairly referee a match between Saraya and Vanessa earlier in the year. She eventually goaded him into a match despite injury keeping him out of the ring for much of the year.

The ante was upped when it became a four corners chain match, tying the two wrestlers together and forcing them to touch all four corners of the ring consecutively to win the match.

Saturday 23rd October 2021

PJ Knight and Brad Slayer were once good friends. However, their friendship ended when championship gold came between them, leading to several bloody and brutal matches since.

One particular match saw PJ defend the European Heavyweight title against Slayer in a steel cage match, allowing their hatred for each other to be unleashed with the chance for escape.

Ricky Knight Jr (c) versus Nathan Cruz for the WAW World Heavyweight Championship
Saturday 26th June 2021

Ricky Knight Jr and Nathan Cruz put on a wrestling clinic when Cruz challenged for the WAW World Heavyweight Championship in his first match since early 2020. There wasn’t any ring rust to be seen though, as Cruz tried every trick in the book to keep RKJ down.

After the match, Cruz was so overwhelmed by the atmosphere created by the audience that he vowed to return to WAW and make them proud, thanking them for the opportunity to perform.
