AAW, also known as AAW Wrestling or AAW: Professional Wrestling Redefined and formerly known as All American Wrestling, is an independent professional wrestling promotion originally based in Berwyn, Illinois, now based in Merrionette Park, IL just south of Chicago.[1]


The company was established in 2004 in Berwyn, Illinois. Events were largely held in the Berwyn Eagles Club until 2015 when majority of shows began being held at 115 Bourbon St. in Merrionette Park, IL. Currently, two shows a year are still held at the Berwyn Eagles Club and two are held at the Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago. [2][3] AAW has also held events in Illinois in Carpentersville, Highwood, Milan, Palatine, Arlington Heights, and Pontiac, as well as in Iowa in Davenport and Donahue.

AAW originally stood for All American Wrestling, but has been simply recognized as AAW since the start of 2007. Tony Scarpone owned and ran AAW from its start in 2004 through May 2005 when Danny Daniels and Jim Lynam began running the company. Danny and Jim then purchased AAW in December 2005.

Perhaps the moment when AAW really began to gain recognition was at the Windy City Classic event in November 2005 when Jimmy Jacobs interrupted a match between Cameron Cage and Mikey Lee and threw the IWA Heavyweight Title into a trash can.

As of 2016, AAW is hosted by Pat Creed, an alumnus of Brother Rice High School in Chicago, Illinois.
