Encyclopedia > Ladder match
Mr. Kennedy grabing the briefcase during the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 23.

A ladder match is a type of match used in professional wrestling that is most commonly used to describe a match where an item (usually a title belt) is hung above the ring, and the winner is the contestant who climbs a ladder and retrieves the item. The ladder itself inevitably becomes a key feature of the match. Specifically, the wrestlers will use the ladder as a weapon to strike the opponent(s), as a launching pad for acrobatic attacks, and frequently these matches include impressive falls from the top of the ladder.

Many types of matches can be found in professional wrestling. ...


As mentioned above, Ladder Matches typically end when the item suspended above the ring is retrieved. However if a weapon is placed there, the match may proceed to a second phase in which the weapon may be used by the wrestler who obtained it and the match ends when one wrestler is able to pin the other. In team matches, this privilege is typically extended to the other members of the team. There are two notable forms of this particular type of Ladder Match. The first is Extreme Championship Wrestling's "Stairway to Hell" match, in which the item hung above the ring was a roll of barbed wire(on other occasions a kendo stick). The second form took place in World Championship Wrestling in the late 1990s where the weapon hung above the ring was a stun-gun. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Summary An electroshock gun or stun gun, is a weapon used for subduing a person by administering an electric shock. ...


Ladder Matches are often used as a finale to storylines, and as such, it is more common to have symbolic briefcases (usually "containing" a contract for a future championship match) or championships belts hung above the ring rather than weapons.


Because of the relatively extreme flow of the match, ladder matches are often fought under no disqualification rules, encouraging the use of ladders along with other weapons as opposed to the sole exception to the ban on foreign objects. As a result, some consider ladder matches in particular as spotfests, where wrestlers continue to take death-defying bumps for the entertainment of the audience, without regard to their own health and safety. Similarly, ladder matches have been frowned upon by promoters because of the easy ability to injure their wrestlers as a result of errant stunts.

In professional wrestling, a spot is a pre-planned move, which is designed to get a particular audience reaction or determine the pace of the match. ...

Origins

Contrary to common opinion, the first ever Ladder Match was not the WrestleMania X classic between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon, nor was the Ladder Match even a product of World Wrestling Entertainment. The Ladder Match was invented by Dan Kroffat of the Stampede Wrestling organization out of Canada. In September 1972, Stampede Wrestling held the first-ever Ladder Match between Dan Kroffat and Tor Kamata, where the object to be grabbed was a wad of money. July of 1983, Stampede Wrestling held another Ladder Match where the object was, once again, money. Bret Hart faced off against Bad News Allen (more commonly known as Bad News Brown). This match is noteworthy because Hart went on to join the WWF and suggested this type of match to promoter Vince McMahon. McMahon took Hart's suggestion and scheduled a Ladder Match between Hart and Shawn Michaels for the Intercontinental Championship on July 21, 1992. Less than two years later, the Ladder Match seemed like a perfect choice for the WrestleMania X contest between Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels. Their match was of such high quality that the concept of the Ladder Match caught on and has been used very widely ever since. WrestleMania X was the tenth annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view event from the World Wrestling Federation. ...

Other variations

  • King of the Mountain match - Used in TNA; essentially a ladder match in reverse, the winner (referred to as the "King of the Mountain") is the first person to attach the object specificed beforehand (usually a championship belt) to the wire above the ring.
  • Stairway To Hell - Used mainly in ECW; in this variation instead of a title being suspended above the ring there's a weapon, usually a ball of barbed wire. Once you've taken down the weapon you are then free to use it, you win the match via pin or submission the same as a singles match.
  • Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match - Variation of the ladder match where tables and chairs are also permitted (and their use is encouraged). Referred to at times simply as TLC matches.
