Just Backyard Wrestling (JBYW) is a federation based in Bridgeview, Illinois that was started in 2010 by former BST and BWA wrestler Jack Havoc. Originally the name for JBYW was Ruthless Wrestling Association or RWA.


In 2010, after the closing of both BST and BWA, Jack Havoc, along with Pauly Richards, came up with the idea to start their own wrestling fed. RWA recieved their base from the now defunct Illinois fed Bridgeview Wrestling Association. RWA's first show took place on October 17th 2010. On November 28th 2010 RWA hosted their first supershow called The After Party. It was at this show that they offically changed their name to Just Backyard Wrestling. JBYW had another supershow on December 26th called BYW>Jesus' Birthday. On April 10, 2011 JBYW became part of the Northern Illinois Wrestling Alliance when they hosted NIWA 5.

JBYW is a founding member of the Midwest Wrestling Alliance. They have hosted MWA 4 and will host MWA 8.
