A Bra and Panties match is so named because it takes place between any amount of female competitors with the winner being the first to strip her opponent to nothing but her bra and panties. An Evening Gown match ends the same way, but instead of the women starting out the match in regular clothing or ring attire they begin in evening gowns. WCW held an "ROTC" match of the same nature, with the contestants beginning the match in camouflage military style attire. Xtreme Pro Wrestling went further with the idea; promoting a Buck Naked match , during which one competitor was supposed to be stripped completely.

Though most would probably argue it's an era best forgotten, WWE Superstar Alexa Bliss brought up the fabled Bra and Panties Match era of WWE in a recent interview, noting that the work those women did helped pave the way for the Women's Evolution, saying, "you gotta respect that because they did that for us to be able to do what we do now. And while the shameless exploitation of women as nothing more the sex objects in wrestling isn't something Bleeding Cool advocates revisiting, we do think that it's a shame to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

WWE fans, especially the men, went wild for this type of stuff. The thing about this lingerie match was that it featured some pretty exciting wrestling. Lita won the match and Stratus scurried out of the ring essentially naked. So many more of these matches followed soon after. During an episode of Raw in , Stratus and Keibler continued their feud by taking part in another underwear match… in the mud.
WWE has been PG for approximately four years now and since that time we have seen a rapid change in the way WWE superstars conduct themselves in the ring, in the backstage segments and out on the streets. WWE programming has watered down its edgier content to appeal to the younger generation as it did in the late 80s and because of this, some gimmick matches have ended up on the scrap heap. The five gimmick matches in this slideshow highlight the brutality, sexiness and pure audacity of the yesteryear of the WWE. The match type even warranted its own championship, held by pretty much the whole roster at the time. Trash cans, kendo sticks, lead pipes, baking trays and even the kitchen sink were used in these high octane matches full of violence.
