[FULL RESULTS] PWR Vendetta 2016 (2/20/16)


The Philippine Wrestling Revolution exploded back into action on February 20, 2016 with its tenth official show, PWR Vendetta 2016 at the sold-out iAcademy Auditorium in Makati City.

Here are quick results from the show in case you couldn't make it.

*****

Pre-show


Match #1: Los Trabajador Dos vs. Yohann "#YOLO" Ollores


This match marked the first appearance of a new talent in Yohann "#YOLO" Ollores—a self-entitled, Starbucks-sipping, douchey Justin Bieber-alike. Los Trabajador Dos put up a spirited fight in the first time we've seen him in singles action, but eventually fell victim to the One Night Stand, Ollores' jumping reverse STO.

Winner: Yohann Ollores via pinfall.

Match #2: Vintendo vs. "The Golden Boy" Chino Guinto


Fresh off his victorious tag debut at last month's PWR Live: Road to Vendetta, Chino Guinto of the Network strutted his stuff against the rugged Vintendo. The Fighting Gamer vanquished the Golden Boy with a monster trademark High Score chokeslam.


The Network beats down Vintendo after the match. Guinto leaves Vintendo seeing stars with a vicious Curb Stomp.

Winner: Vintendo via pinfall.

Main Show


Opening Segment: The Royal Flush Welcome PWR Champion Ralph Imabayashi


Short video segment that featured tonight's challenger for the PWR Championship, "Classical" Bryan Leo and his Royal Flush cronies John Sebastian and Main Maxx, welcoming the Fil-Japanese PWR Champion in the iAcademy parking lot.

After heated words were exchanged, the Flush subjected Imabayashi to a massive beatdown.

Match #1—Path of Gold Match: Main Maxx vs. "The Senyorito" Jake De Leon



This match marked the fifth time the Royal Flush's enforcer Main Maxx has stepped into the ring opposite "The Senyorito" Jake De Leon, but the first time the two have faced off in singles competition. The Path of Gold trophy JDL won at PWR Terminus 2015 was at stake, which guarantees a PWR Championship match at this May's PWR Wrevolution X 2016.

Main Maxx busts out his rarely-seen Maxximum Mutilation submission hold for a big pop, but eventually falls to a superkick fiesta by the Heir to Hacienda De Leon and a thundering Alipin Drop for the loss.


The biggest Alipin Drop we ever did see!!! #PWRVendetta

Winner: JDL via pinfall. 


Promo Segment: Mr. Sy Welcomes The Revo-Nation


Mr. Sy addresses the crowd in attendance and invites the newly-crowned MyPW Extreme Division Champion Bombay Suarez to the ring. PHX Champion Ken Warren interrupts, but gets dressed down by PWR's General Manager. Sy calls for the next match to start immediately—the much-awaited Champion vs. Champion match between Suarez and Warren.

Match #2—Champion vs. Champion: PHX Champion "The Social Media Sinister" Ken Warren (with Joey Bax) vs. MyPW Extreme Division Champion Bombay Suarez



This was a hard-fought rematch from last year's edition of Vendetta, with both men busting out their trademark spots, including the Bomb Shelter swinging side slam Suarez used to win his championship in Malaysia last week. Warren's heel tactics proved to be the turning point, with a low blow setting Suarez up for a Wi-Fi and the three-count to avenge his loss from 2015.

Winner: Ken Warren via pinfall.


Promo Segment #2: Mr. Sy Takes The Show On The Road


The GM makes a shocking announcement to the chagrin of the flamboyant Ken Warren after his underhanded win—a PHX Championship defense against Suarez and Warren's nemesis Chris Panzer in a Triple Threat match next week at PWR Live in Calamba, Laguna.

Match #3: John Sebastian vs. Mark D. Manalo



The Ace of the Royal Flush dominates throughout the match, felling Manalo with a nasty Dragon Driver followed by a Killshot knee strike to the temple for the win.

Post match, The Apocalypse skulks to the ring for yet another beatdown on the fallen Manalo, only to be interrupted by a returning Kanto Terror, MDM's partner in the Beer Promdi tag team who has been absent from PWR for six months with a lacerated eyeball caused at the hands of the Apocalypse.

Winner: John Sebastian via pinfall.


Match #4: Rederick Mahaba vs. James "Idol" Martinez



Despite being outweighed by approximately 200 pounds against the self-styled "Intimate Warrior," James "Idol" Martinez of The Network put up an admirable fight, including a crowd-pleasing Bronco Buster and a sleeperhold. Vintendo, bouncing back from his beatdown by the Network earlier on the show, hits ringside to dispatch of Martinez's cronies Guinto and "Big Bank" Bruno Bernardo, evening the odds for Rederick Mahaba.

"The Machine" Mavericc Knight makes his main roster debut however, impressing the live audience with a jaw-dropping Good Knight slam on Mahaba to allow Idol to sneak away with the win.

Winner: James "Idol" Martinez via pinfall after outside interference by "The Machine" Mavericc Knight


Match #5—Intergender Match: Peter Versoza vs. Crystal



The first ever intergender match in Philippine Wrestling Revolution history turned out to be a surprisingly well-matched one, with Crystal showing some fire against a competitor with a size, skill, and experience advantage—even picking up a close two-count at one point.

Versoza picks up the win with his Karne Norte gutbuster, but fans in attendance rated this as match of the night up to this point, showing a potentially bright future for Crystal as she transitions from ring announcer to wrestler.

Winner: Peter Versoza via pinfall.


Match #6: SANDATA vs. Joey Bax



This match was a certified slobberknocker between two men who have been thorns in each other's sides since they both first debuted in PWR a year ago.

SANDATA finally broke through with his first official career win, grounding the dangerous Joey Bax with his trademark kick-based offense and a devastating Pagbasag headscissors takedown, finally forcing him to tap out to a grapevine ankle lock.

Winner: SANDATA via submission.


Match #7—PWR Championship Match: "Classical" Bryan Leo vs. Ralph Imabayashi (c)



As per Mr. Sy, the rest of the Royal Flush—John Sebastian, Main Maxx, and Scarlett—were all banned from ringside this match, forcing "Classical" Bryan Leo to fly solo in his quest to reclaim the PWR Championship he lost to Ralph Imabayashi at Terminus last December.

This was reportedly one of the best matches in PWR history to date, with two of the finest all-around wrestlers in the Philippines trading near-falls and submission attempts, and Leo even dishing out a unique arm-based variant of Diamond Dust.

Imabayashi looked to be coasting to victory, but after mistakenly dropping the referee with the Sonic Crusher after getting his eyes gouged by Bryan Leo, he gets attacked by a mystery man. Leo strikes with the Royal Flushdown to regain the PWR Championship.

Peter Versoza is revealed as the mystery man and announced as the new Jack of the Royal Flush.

Winner and NEW PWR Champion: "Classical" Bryan Leo via pinfall.
