Championship and Accoplishment[]

A Stap Match, know by many names and done with many slight variations, is any match where the competitors are placed on the opposite ends of a restraint to keep them from close physical proximity. By definition the strap-and anything tied to it-are considered legal and in play weapons. The most common rule for victory is for one wrestler to have to go around the ring, touching all four corners in order and without stopping, although they can also end in pinfalls. Because of the strap's legality, and subsequent use as a choking device, submissions are generally not allowed

The Strap Match is one of the most varied forms of professional wrestling match type, both in name and implements used, with the name used generally coming from the implement used and one or both of the participants gimmicks (i.e. Russian Chain Match, Indian Strap Match, Samoan Strap Match). Common restraints include a belt, bullrope (length of rope with a cow bell in the center), steel chains, one to two foot "leash"m or leather strap, In the dog collar variation, the wrestlers are connected at the neck by dog collars.
