Multiple wrestlers begin in the ring during a Battle Royale. There are typically two ways for elimination. The most dominant form of the Battle Royale is over-the-top. Wrestlers must be thrown over the top rope onto the arena floor to be eliminated. The second, and much-lesser accomodated, style is pinfall. Wrestlers must be pinned or caused to submit to be eliminated. Every fifth Thursday of the month, there was a cash Battle Royale main event.
