Anarchy Wrestling is an American independent professional wrestling promotion based in Cornelia, Georgia and promoting events throughout North Georgia. The company was owned by local firefighter turned wrestling promoter Jerry Palmer until April 2011 when the promotion was sold to Franklin Dove. Dove sold the promotion to Charles Anschutz in 2015.

History[edit]

Bill Behrens, former owner of NWA Wildside.

NWA Anarchy Wrestling was started when its predecessor NWA Wildside closed on April 30, 2005 as a result of then owner Bill Behrens employment with World Wrestling Entertainment's developmental program Deep South Wrestling.[1] Anarchy held its inaugural event on May 21, 2005 at the NWA Television Arena in Cornelia.

In September 2005, after a falling out with World Wrestling Entertainment, former Wildside owner Bill Behrens joined NWA Anarchy Wrestling as Executive Producer. As a result, effective January 2006, NWA Anarchy Wrestling inherited the NWA Wildside TV syndication network and began broadcasting their weekly television program across the U.S., United Kingdom and Italy, as well as weekly on the internet at TheSuperStation.tv.

On May 14, 2011, Former Owner Jerry Palmer passed the torch to new Owner Franklin Dove. JT Talent was the General Manager.

On December 27, 2014 Franklin Dove announced that Anarchy Wrestling was sold to Southern Fried Championship Wrestling owner Charles Anschutz. Anschutz stated that the two promotions would be ran as separate entities.

Anarchy Wrestling's television product is currently hosted by Brett Wolverton, Jonathan Feltner, and John "the Body" Johnson.

Through its history Anarchy Wrestling has been home to TNA Wrestling's Gunner, NXT's Dash Wilder, and the WWE's Xavier Woods and Heath Slater.
