No Way Out[]

No Way Out was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event, produced every February by the professional wrestling promotion, International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE). The event was created in 1998, with its inaugural event produced as an In Your House event in February of that year. The event in 2000 was rebranded as an annual PPV event for IWE. To coincide with the brand extension, the event was made exclusive to the Fusion brand in 2004. In 2007, to follow the format of WrestleMania, all PPV events became tri-branded. The final event was held in 2009, with Elimination Chamber replacing No Way Out in 2010. During its time, the event had been held in two countries: the United States and Canada. It had been held in eight U.S. states and one Canadian province, where every event has been held in an indoor arena. Each event featured talent from IWE competing in various professional wrestling match types. Seven championship matches have taken place in the main event during its run. Professional wrestling is a non-competitive professional sport, where matches are prearranged by the promotion's writing staff, and is also considered an athletic performing art, containing strong elements of catch wrestling, mock combat, and theatre. Each PPV event features several professional wrestling matches that involve different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers are portrayed as either villains or heroes in the scripted events that build tension and culminate into a wrestling match or series of matches.


Now Way Out went from ??? to 2009. It is now been replaced by Elimination Chamber where the World Heavyweight and IWE Championship's have to be defended inside the devils structure called the Elimination Chamber.
