SSW Entertainment is an American wrestling promotion from Wisconsin.
SSW was founded in 2003 as South Shore Wrestling, a small promotion out of Cudahy, WI, that focus primarily on young and hungry talent looking to get into the industry. With it initial run lasting for 2 1/2 years, and nearly 42 events, SSW would make a huge impact on the Milwaukee wrestling scene, with many of its early talents now headlining for many other promotions in the region!
In 2006, SSW merged with the Kenosha faction of USA Championship Wrestling, to form a new SSW known as Stars & Stripes Wrestling. SSW became known for its spectacular annual charity event known as "Headlock on Hunger", as well as being a staple of the Kenosha community, holding numerous charitable events across the county.
In the fall of 2011, SSW Wrestling was re-organized into SSW Entertainment, and re-formulated into a wrestling promotional and production company, offering it's production services to other groups, to help grow the industry in the area. SSW worked briefly with Fusion Pro Wrestling in Milwaukee, and Kenosha Pro Wrestling, working with those promotions to produce events. But, SSW would soon after return to primarily booking its own events, though still offering its services to other promotions that wished to work with SSW.
In 2013, SSW "rebooted" itself, debuting a new vision for the promotion in that of booking top talent from throughout the nation, with new focus on becoming a major offering in the midwest indepedent wrestling scene, primarily booking events at the Brat Stop in Kenosha, WI, one the top venues in the region. SSW would debut its "Lords of the Ring" annual tournament, bring back Headlock on Hunger, and celebrate its 10th Anniversary in the first 5 months of 2013.
