Triple Threat Match
This is a one fall match where three wrestlers fight instead of two. The winner of this match is the first wrestler to get a pin fall or submission. There is usually no disqualfication or count-out. If a championship is on the line, the champion does not have to be pinned or submit for the title to change hands. (The rationale for this match is that in Triple Threats, as opposed to Three Way Dances, wrestlers cannot gang up on each other and each wrestler has an incentive to break up pinfall or submission attempts made by other wrestlers.)
Identical to a Triple Threat Match, but with four wrestlers in the ring at the same time instead of three. On occasion, this may be booked as an "elimination match"
A match in which one wrestler or one team of wrestlers faces another team of wrestlers with numerical superiority. For example, two wrestlers against one.

The referee must also see a tag for it to be legal
Tornado Tag Match

2 out of 3 Falls Match
In order to win, a competitor must score two "falls" before his opponent does. Sometimes each fall is fought under different stipulations (called Three Stages of Hell). These stipulations include one "pinfall", one "submissions only fall," and one "no disqualification fall." This type of match is almost always booked to go to the third fall.
A match where the ring is surrounded by a group of "lumberjacks", normally fellow wrestlers. When one participant in the match leaves the ring for any reason, the lumberjacks are supposed to return him to the ring as soon as possible. The lumberjacks are generally a combination of faces and heels, who sometimes fight among themselves outside the ring. Sometimes, as part of a storyline, a face will wrestle a heel with a group of lumberjacks consisting entirely of heels. A variation of this match is called a Canadian Lumberjack Match, in which the lumberjacks are equipped with leather straps. When the lumberjacks are all female, the match is known as a Lumberjill Match
A match between two or more wrestlers where the winner is the one who climbs the ladder and grabs a reward (usually a championship belt). It can also be done with nothing hanging above the ring and ending in a pinfall for the win.
Falls count anywhere Match
This match has pinfalls anywhere in the arena. Otherwise, normal rules apply. Another variation of the rules state that once a pinfall takes, the pinned wrestler must return to the ring within 60 seconds else they lose. If the pinned wrestler makes it to the ring in this time, the match continues. Under these rules, all pinfalls must take place outside the ring
Also known as Special Guest Referee is any match in which the usual referee is replaced with a "guest" filling in as the official. Celebrities, managers and other wrestlers can "guest" as the special referee. In some cases, a special referee is put into a match which is already a different match type or stipulation (for example: Hell in a Cell with a Special Referee). Often the special referee will often be biased towards or against one of the competitors or will be assigned as the Special Referee to ensure the match is called down the line.
Special Outside Referee
Also known as Special Enforcer or Special Guest Enforcer is same as the Special Referee but the guest referee stays on the outside enforcing what the normal referee doesn't see. These guests are sometimes known as "enforcers", the most famous of which was Mike Tyson.

is a variation of the steel cage and Hell in a Cell matches, in that the ring is surrounded by a steel structure of chain and girders, but is circular allowing for four inner chambers to be placed on the apron with platforms keeping the wrestlers from the floor. The metal is black and the chambers are made of 'bulletproof' glass. The match is contested by six wrestlers, two beginning the match and the other four in the glass chambers. After five minutes or three minutes (in subsequent matches) a chamber opens at random and wrestler is added to the two already competing, and this continues until all men are released.

Due to their dangerous nature, Hell in a Cell matches are generally seen only at pay per view events.
Steel Cage Match
Steel Cage Match is a match fought within an open top cage with sides often made from sturdy plastic or chain-link fencing. Traditionally, the only way to win is to escape from the cage either by climbing over the top of the cage or through the door that the wrestlers enter at the start of the match, and having both feet planted on the ground. However, it is not uncommon for cage matches to permit pinfalls or submissions - in such a case a referee is also placed in the cage, and escape remains only possible winning method should the inside referee be knocked out.
A variation of a no holds barred match with a particular emphasis on the use of the three most popular "foreign objects" in wrestling. The TLC pits three or more tag teams against each other with the goal of acquiring the tag team championship belts which start the match suspended above the ring. In this sense, a TLC match can be seen as a ladder match where tables and chairs can be used as legal foreign objects. This, compared to the relative ages of the wrestlers involved, gives the match an atmosphere similar to that of a hardcore match.
This is a match where the opponents may use only one weapon (Their choice) Other than the use of a weapon all other rules apply. (The Pin or Submission must take place in the ring. Count-outs in effect.)
