(BWE) is widely recognized as the (WWE) of backyard wrestling. Steven Hardy the owner is focus on technical, puroresu, lucha libre and high-risk extreme spots more so then hardcore wrestling.




In early 2006, Steven Hardy, Stone Hardy & The Joker started up the Hardcore Wrestling Organization (HWO). Steven Hardy defeated Stone Hardy in a ladder match on January 20, 2006 to become the first HWO World Heavyweight Champion. In early 2009, HWO changed in's style of wrestling from a hardcore base to a pure wrestling style hoping to draw in a new brand of fans, but the change came at a disappointment to the hardcore wrestling fans. So instead, Steven Hardy created Backyard Wrestling Entertainment (BWE). Since then BWE has gained it's own fan base and has become one of the most known byw federations to-date. Steven Hardy has focused more on technical wrestling then hardcore wrestling as it's HWO counterpart, and has added in a storyline base, so people will be more entertained.
