Like many forms of underground entertainment, independent professional wrestling organizations often vary in lifespan. Some are able to stay active for years, growing an impressive lineup of alumni who hopefully move on to bigger and better organizations, bringing fame and fortune to the organizations in which they started.

Whether due to their matches, the wrestlers involved, or even the fans, these organizations become etched in the collective consciousness of their local wrestling communities.
