BJW Deathmatch Wrestling – The Bloodiest Japanese Wrestling

BJW Deathmatch Wrestling 01 Yes, we all know professional wrestling is fake, to a degree. The matches are predetermined, the moves are choreographed, and the storylines are just a male oriented soap opera. Does that mean everything in wrestling is fake? Not in the slightest! Athletes still have amazing skill and strength and every match takes its toll on the human body. While the typical chair shot to the head, powerbomb through a table, or fall from a ladder comes with risk, there are athletes who take it one step further. These crazy individuals are known as deathmatch wrestlers and battle it out with barbed wire  fire, broken glass, and fluorescent light tubes. While the deathmatch style is common place all over the world, nobody does it better then Big Japan Wrestling (BJW). If you’re new to this style of violent enterainment or looking for the cream of the crop, look no further than the roster of BJW.


While the typical card for a BJW event features more traditional style wrestling, deathmatches have been BJW’s main attraction since its foundation and first event on March 16, 1995 at Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium.

There is no way to fake being thrown into barbwire ropes, or powerbombed into a cluster of fluorescent light tubes. The blood, wounds, and scars seen on a typical deathmatch wrestlers body are all the proof you need. Wrestlers like Jun Kasai and Ryuji Ito look like human jigsaw puzzles after years of battling in the squared circle. It should come as no surprise that the typical deathmatch wrestlers career lasts about 1/3rd the length of traditional wrestlers.


As if barbwire, fire, broken glass, and fluorescent light tubes aren’t extreme enough these matches can escalate to involve even more extreme conditions. Every so often athletes will do battle in a ring with pits of live scorpions, piranha, crocodiles, and venomous snakes. Contrary to the name nobody actually dies in deathmatchs, the name was chosen when someone noticed the death-defying nature of what was taking place in the ring.


If you’ve grown tired watching the over the hill Triple H‘s and Stings of televised wrestling in The United States, I suggest you give BJW an honest shot. The talent in the WWE doesn’t have shit compared to the typical clean wrestler in BJW, and if you never seen a deathmatch in its entirety, you have no idea what you’re missing out on.
