Weapon-based variations[edit | edit source]
Though the use of foreign objects is illegal under the standard rules of professional wrestling, some match types have been devised to allow in specific objects under certain conditions. The object in question is usually related to one or both of the wrestlers gimmicks or was in some way instrumental in the angle that led to the match taking place. In either case, the matches generally take the name of the weapon being used ("Singapore Cane" match", "Nightstick match"). The following is a list of weapon-based matches where additional rules supplant or replace the standard rules.
