As pro wrestling has evolved over the years, many promotions have fallen behind the curve in keeping up with what fans expect to see. In the current era of high-risk moves and fast-paced, action-packed matches, the use of a simple count to three as the termination of a contest seems behind the times. Ending a match in such a short amount of time allotted by the traditional "3-count" pinfall does not give justice to the hard work and effort our competitors put into their respective contests, and thus is why we are converting to the longer "4-count" pinfall to end the match.
Over the past 13 years, SSW Pro Wrestling has prided itself in being "something different" by staying on the cutting edge of the industry. In keeping with that tradition, SSW owner RJ Daniels has just announced that starting on April 10th, at "Dividing Lines", all matches in SSW will henceforth be contested with a "4-count" pinfall rule.
The new rule states that "a competitor will not be declared the winner of a match as a result of a pinfall over another competitor until a count of four (4) has been attained by the official of the contest".
Of course, all other normal rules of submission, count-out, and disqualification still apply. The "4-count" takes effect April 1st, also known as April fools day.
