Castilex Slave Match 2135 Godsend Sometimes Godsend seeks to “keep wrestlers in their place” by making them temporary slaves of the Dominion. When this happens Godsend will order a “Castilex Slave Match.” The loser of the match must be a slave of the Dominion until the next fight card on Castilex. This match takes place in a circular ring with the ropes held together by energy fields and not turnbuckles. A Dominion scepter or suit of armor occasionally appears out of nowhere and impacts the match. It disappears after it is used, perhaps appearing again later in the match.

Flare Bomb Match 2123 This match is a tag-team match. Each team gets three flare bombs that they can throw at the opponent from outside the ring. The flare bombs cannot be thrown by the legal wrestler in the ring, but only by his tag partner(s). The flare bombs can be thrown at any time during the match.

The Gutarr Stick is hard to break, but when it does (like when it’s broken over an opponent’s head!), it becomes an even more dangerous weapon due to its jagged edges! Each wrestler is equipped with his own Gutarr Stick for the match and it is attached to their wrist with an unbreakable electro-band.

The match, dubbed a "virtual reality match", takes place in a transparent box that surrounds the ring.

Pictor Four Corners Match 2114 Corporal Aegis Originally discovered in the Pictor System as part of the PCW (Pictor Championship Wrestling), it was brought to the GWF as part of the brutal war between the Ramparts and Murdok's World.

In order to win the match, a wrestler must weaken his opponent enough that he is able to smash his opponent into all four turnbuckles in succession within 30 seconds.
Rigel Royal Rumble 2095 King Lear This match is typically used when there is a lot at stake, like a title match or a title itself. This match follows Universal Battle Royal Rules and typically involves up to twenty to thirty fighters. Unlike a Battle Royal where all entrants are in the ring to start, order of entry is determined randomly, then two wrestlers begin the match with a new competitor entering at a pre-determined time interval until every competitor has entered the match.

Ringside Companion 2101
Ruins of Antilla Match This match was first introduced when the GWF arrived in Dimension Y during the wrestling ban years.

Once one of the wrestlers climbs the turnbuckle and retrieves the rod, it can be used by either wrestler for the remainder the match.
Scorpi King of the Ring Match 2107 Mandrill "The Prime Colonizer" introduced this match as part of his goal to show total dominance over everyone in the GWF.

This match is fought in a round cage with Titanium Bars. When the wrestlers begin the match, the Torture Chamber is lowered over the ring. There are no doors. There are two foot spikes every six inches all across the top of the chamber, making it impossible to climb out of. There is no escape.
