The Match of Destiny is a Battle royal match whose participants enter at timed intervals. It is the main event match of SCAW Day of Destiny.

HistoryEdit

EventEdit

The first Match of Destiny took place on March 30, 2008.

The Match of Destiny is usually located at the top of the card. Due to the match taking up a large amount of time (most last roughly one hour), Day of Destiny tends to have a smaller card than most other click-per-view events.

MatchEdit

The Match of Destiny is based on the classic Battle Royal match, in which a number of wrestlers (usually 30) aim at eliminating their competitors by tossing them over the top rope, with both feet touching the floor. The winner of the event is the last wrestler remaining after all others have been eliminated.

The Match of Destiny differs from the classical Battle Royal as the contestants do not enter the ring at the same time but instead are assigned entry numbers, usually via a lottery. This lottery is usually staged right before the event begins. The match begins with the two wrestlers who have drawn entry numbers one and two, with the remaining wrestlers entering the ring at regularly timed intervals, either 90 seconds or two minutes, according to their entry number. As of 2016, the most common number to win is number 24.

The match has no stipulations or rules other than that elimination must occur by a participant being placed over the top rope and both feet touching the floor. A wrestler who only touches the floor with one foot is not eliminated from the match.

PrizeEdit

The winner of the Match of Destiny is traditionally awarded a title match for the SCAW Championship at the next CPV. Day of Destiny 2012 was the exception as the winner got a title shot in the Five Year SCAW Anniversary.

DebutsEdit

The Match of Destiny is also used to debut new SCAW wrestlers. Some have gone on to fame while others faded into obscurity.
