The Global Professional Wrestling Alliance (GPWA) is a cooperative group of professional wrestling promotions and wrestlers from around the world. Formed in 2006, the group was founded by the professional wrestler Mitsuharu Misawa, the founder of Pro Wrestling Noah. It is led by president Yoshiyuki Nakamura, co-owner of Pro Wrestling Zero1.


The group was established as a means to aid the many competing wrestling promotions in Japan. Members will share resources including training facilities and their wrestlers themselves. They will also coordinate the arrangements of their shows in order to avoid clashes. In addition to this "super shows" will be run with wrestlers from the member promotions competing on the same shows. This first of which occurred on November 14, 2006.

It is also likely that in the future the promotions will donate part of their profits towards a fund which could supply a pension for retired wrestlers. This has been seen as a sign of the GPWA developing towards becoming a union, something which the professional wrestling industry has always lacked.
