Stockport Wrestling Association is a wrestling company by the Duke Of Stockport. It was formed in 2008, going by the name Magnolia Wrestling Association and the wrestlers were Fairy Tail characters. Magnolia Wrestling soon landed in debt, in true Fairy Tail-style. So here comes the MWA saviour Duke of Stockport, he bought MWA - the company was renamed SWA and it now operated from Stockport, Greater Manchester.
Steve Fox beat Gajeel Redfox in Round One of a Tournament for the new-fangled SWA Heavyweight Championship, in what was the 'first-ever match' for the newly-named company.
Steve and Gajeel would become integral figures in SWA, teaming up to much success after an intense feud early doors.
In addition, the company also crowned the female Erza Scarlet as their first-ever Champion, an unprecedented move in the world of pro-wrestling.
The promotion's biggest event is named SWA Collision. It is typically held at Wembley Stadium, in late September.
The company takes a one-month break every six months; this ensures performer morale remains high and alleviates injuries.
There are five Stockport Wrestling Association Championships; four are active: Heavyweight, Intercontinental (formerly Cross-Atlantic), Connect and Women's.
SWA Assistant Manager Mirajane Strauss announced that the fifth championship - SWA Women Connect Championship - would gain its inaugural champions on 6th June 2015.
