Grapple Arts World-Wide (GAW) is a wrestling company (e-fed) based out of Scotland that attempts to present professional wrestling not only as an art form but as entertainment. It's main goal is to showcase a mixture of all of the styles of wrestling, bringing the best Lucha Libre, Technical Wrestlers, Death Match Fighters, Puro, and Amateur wrestlers, to put on the greatest wrestling experience possible, while keeping a lighthearted feel to the whole thing. GAW is run by Mark Fyfe, formerly Mark Faith of UWL's very own Hard-Rock Connection (Mark Faith & Thaurer).

GAW House Shows are taped in various arenas over the UK and Canada. The GAW television production is on a level somewhere between CHIKARA Pro and Ring of Honor. The GAW House shows are officially called GAW: The Red and Black Attack, but are simply known as the Tapings among the GAW Fans. House Shows are conducted each Friday except after Mega Cards when they are done on Saturdays.

GAW doesn’t have a PPV deal at the moment our House Shows are broadcast on local TV Networks. GAW does not have a PPV each month but instead hold what they call Mega Cards. Mega Cards are officially known as Glory Bound, and are held at one of the larger arenas in the UK and Canada, depending on predicted attendance. These Mega Cards feature the best matches and promise not to disappoint.

GAW records all its Megaevents for DVD release and therefore have developed a loyal fan base outside of the UK and Canada as well as around Britain.


In March 2008, successful professional wrestlers and tag team partners Mark Fyfe and Thaurer decided to open their own promotion.
