Elite Answers Wrestling, also known as EAW, is a sports and entertainment global juggernaut that has been established for a decade now. EAW is the number one combat sports company in the world with a bullet, putting on some of the highest rated sports programming on a weekly basis, and providing the number 1 shows on cable television. EAW has stood out from day one due to it’s high production value, but has built credibility by putting on the most memorable matches, moments, rivalries and stories on all of sports and entertainment.
Elite Answers Wrestling was created in June of 2007 by CM Banks, as well as Mak and Evan, gaining a cult-like following. Following the demise of parent company, Answers Wrestling Federation, EAW regained it’s independence in December of 07′ after drawing the highest ratings in the sports titan company as the # 1 brand. Backed by a conglomerate of wealthy billionaires, EAW has been given the freedom and financial independence from day one to put on as scintillating a product as they can, mixing heavy drama with dizzying displays of athleticism and an unparalleled sports element found in very few wrestling promotions.
EAW holds four active weekly shows, including it’s flagship show ‘Saturday Night Showdown’ that stands as the longest weekly episodic show in major wrestling history. Along with it comes the critically heralded ‘Friday Night Dynasty’, as well as the award winning show brimming with young talent ‘Sunday Night Voltage’. EAW’s female wrestlers are showcased as well on ‘Thursday Night Empire’. EAW hosts monthly Free-Per-Views, or FPV’s, hosted on television as well as provided on the EAW Network which has garnered close to 20 million subscribers worldwide.
EAW over the years made an effort to expand it’s market as well as crush the competition around it. From it’s inception in 2007 EAW started out in the North Eastern region of the United States, with it’s headquarters located in New Jersey. EAW quickly expanded upon regaining it’s independence from AWF. In 2008 the critically and commercially successful major event, ‘Pain for Pride 1’ took EAW to new heights, making it a national phenomenon. By Pain for Pride 2 EAW became solidified as the number 1 company in the United States, and by Pain for Pride 3 in 2010 EAW marked it’s territory as a global force.
Currently EAW is responsible for the rejuvenation of combat sports, creating the biggest box office attraction in pro wrestling, boxing or MMA since the 1980’s. It is now a worldwide phenomenon, responsible for selling out seats relatively easily in the United States and putting on a sellout world tour in the year of 2015.
EAW is now currently a monopoly in professional wrestling, with a widespread reputation of being “major league pro wrestling”. It is the third largest sports promotion in the United States behind the NFL and the NBA, and has catapulted wrestling into being one of the most watched sports in the world. In 2016 EAW enjoyed it’s highest year of revenue, drawing a net of over $2 billion in revenue due to it’s television contract, sponsorships, live attendance, merchandise and the success of the EAW Network.
