Throwing Hands is an annual pay-per-view event produced by the Professional Grappling Association. Along with Cargado Completamente, it is known as one of the "international" pay-per-views, often taking advantage of the PGA's relationships with foreign wrestling promotions. The inaugural event was produced in tandem with All Asia Pro Wrestling in Tokyo, Japan; near the end of the event, PGA Commissioner B. Armstrong Ruby broke script and attempted to murder Brandon O'Brien in grotesque fashion. The following year's event was originally scheduled to take place in Japan once again, but the events of the 2009 show made AAPW wary of the possibility of a similar incident; the 2010 event instead took place in London, England in conjunction with United Kingdom Championship Wrestling. In 2011, Throwing Hands was held in the United States, but stuck to the theme by taking place in Washington, D.C., the nation's capital.
