Many types of professional wrestling matches, sometimes called "concept" or "gimmick matches" in the jargon of the business, are performed in professional wrestling.
The single matches is the most basic of all professional wrestling matches which involves only two competitors competing for one fall. Victory is obtained by pinfall, submission, knockout, countout or disqualification.
In matches were championships are being contested, the championship typically retains the title of a disqualification or countout finish, no matter which competitor was disqualified or counted out in what is known as the "championship advantage".
Some of the most common variations on the singles match restrict the possible means for defeat: only pinfalls are permitted in Pin Only or Pinfall match, only submissions in a Submission match, etc. Another variation is a Time Limit match in which a match is contested until a time limit is reached or a wrestler achieves victory; in the event of the former, a separate method is used to determine the method including audience reaction, judges or even a rematch.
