The American Wrestling Affiliates, alternately referred to as The AWA or The REAL AWA, is a governing body for six independent wrestling promotions in the eastern United States and New Brunswick Canada. It was created in April 2008 when former AWA Superstars of Wrestling member promotion Mountaineer Wrestling Association broke away to form a new AWA. Soon afterwards, four more promotions joined: APEX Wrestling of West Virginia, World Star Wrestling (WSW) of Connecticut, the North Atlantic Wrestling Association (NAWA) of Maine, and Championship Wrestling of Tennessee. Innovative Hybrid Wrestling (IHW), based in New Brunswick, also joined within a month of the American Wrestling Affiliates initial formation.

Famous quotes containing the words american and/or wrestling:
“Our fathers and grandfathers who poured over the Midwest were self-reliant, rugged, God-fearing people of indomitable courage.... They asked only for freedom of opportunity and equal chance. In these conceptions lies the real basis of American democracy. They and their fathers give a genius to American institutions that distinguished our people from any other in the world.”
—Herbert Hoover (18741964)
“We laugh at him who steps out of his room at the very moment when the sun steps out, and says: I will the sun to rise; and at him who cannot stop the wheel, and says: I will it to roll; and at him who is taken down in a wrestling match, and says: I lie here, but I will that I lie here! And yet, all laughter aside, do we ever do anything other than one of these three things when we use the expression, I will?”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
