MyPW Uprising Results (2/13/16): Bombay Strikes Gold, Panzer Falls Short


Southeast Asia is fast emerging as a hotbed for professional wrestling, and that's never been more apparent than at the upstart Malaysia Pro Wrestling (MyPW)'s first ever standalone event, Uprising. Over 300 rabid Malaysia fans gathered at the sold-out KuAsh Theatre to celebrate a one-of-a-kind supercard featuring talents from MyPW, the Philippine Wrestling Revolution (PWR), Singapore Pro Wrestling (SPW), and New Vietnam Prowrestling (NVP)

We've got quick results from the four-hour extravaganza featuring eight matches, including two in particular that Philippine pro wrestling fans have been salivating over—separate championship challenges by PWR's own Bombay Suarez and Chris Panzer for the Extreme Division Championship and Southeast Asian Regional Championship respectively.

These two belts were unveiled to much fanfare a week ago, giving the Pinoy superstars massive stakes to shoot for.

Those belts look delicious. Let's get to it, Henrinites!

Match #1—Triple Threat: The D vs. Greg Glorious vs. Saigon Guerrero 



The D comes away with the victory, declaring afterwards that he would be gunning for whoever won the MyPW SEA Regional Championship to be contested later on in the evening.



Meanwhile, Greg Glorious got into a post-match confrontation with legendary Japanese wrestler Dick Togo afterwards, falling to a surprise Pedigree even Triple H would be proud of.

Match #2—Juniors Division: Spider Monkey vs. Farish the Killer Clown



Farish defeats Spider Monkey via pinfall in what was described as a highly-energetic match.


Match #3—Extreme Division Championship: Bombay Suarez vs. JTJ



This was an intense match that included such spots as a second-rope superplex by JTJ to Bombay onto a 2x4 wrapped in rolls of barbed wire. Crazy.



Bombay bounces back with a vicious Bomb Shelter onto a ladder to claim the three-count.

PWR's own Bitch Killer is now the top hardcore wrestler in all of Southeast Asia.

Match #4—Women's Division: Poppy vs. Scarlett Lyd



Scarlett Lyd gets her revenge after her loss at Komik Kon after capitalizing on outside interference to drop Poppy with her take on AJ Styles' Styles Clash, the Scarlett Letter.

Match #5—Tag Team Match: A-Fifth & Daryl Wong vs. Double K & Gotham



A-Fifth and Daryl Wong come away with an emphatic victory in what some fans declared the match of the night.

Match #6—Last Man Standing: The Kid vs. Furious Faizal



This was an entertaining David-versus-Goliath match, with Faizal making the most of his 100+ pound advantage with such moves as this merciless truckstop powerbomb on The Kid.



We also saw the Furious One nearly eke out the win against his 13-year-old rival with a crushing Tombstone piledriver.

But in the end, the popular Kid outlasted gargantuan odds to claim victory.


Match #7: Razza the Anarchist Soldier vs. Mad Scholar 



This was a crowd-pleasing contest featuring such hellacious spots as a top-rope huricanrana by Razza to Mad Scholar.



Razza was initially declared winner of the match, but had the decision overturned. Mad Scholar takes home the 'W.'


Match #8—MyPW Southeast Asia Regional Championship: Chris Panzer vs. Shaukat 



This was a back-and-forth match that saw the explosive Shaukat stamp his dominance all over Panzer, including a beautiful top-rope Swanton Bomb from halfway across the ring.


Shaukat picks up the win after a thrilling finisher reversal sequence ends in Chris Panzer missing his trademark Panzerschreck bicycle kick and getting caught with the Big Daddy's deadly Michinoku Driver II finisher.

Shaukat is now the officially-recognized king of Southeast Asian wrestling after this hard-fought victory.



More than the matches themselves, this was a true milestone in establishing the Southeast Asian brand of pro wrestling. We hope we get to see more cross-promotional cards like this in the near future blending the diverse styles, personalities, and talents from all over the region.
