The winner is the first man to escape the boiler room. Any weapons found in the room can be used. During Jerry Flynn's stint in World Championship Wrestling, this match was known as "The Block". This match has come to be known as one of Mick Foley's specialty matches.
The Boiler Room Brawl is almost non-existent in today's WWE. However, prior to the "Attitude" era, which introduced much more ringside weapons into matches, the Boiler Room Brawl was used as a way to get such items as ladders and steel pipes into matches. As the name suggests, the Boiler Room Brawl takes place inside an arena boiler room. The winner is usually the first Superstar to escape the room.
