[FULL RESULTS] PWR Live: Manila Madness (3/5/16)



Exactly two weeks after we saw "Classical" Bryan Leo regain control of the Philippine Wrestling Revolution Championship from a hard-fighting Ralph Imabayashi, and the beloved Kanto Terror return to action after a six-month hiatus at PWR Vendetta 2016, the country's only active wrestling promotion broke new grounds at PWR Live: Manila Madness, its first official venture outside its traditional Makati stomping grounds.

In case you couldn't make it, we've got quick results from the evening's action.

*****

Match #1: Rederick Mahaba vs. James "Idol" Martinez "The Golden Boy" Chino Guinto of The Network 



This match was supposedly Rederick Mahaba's opportunity for revenge after getting a win stolen from him against Martinez at Vendetta. Martinez pulled a swerve, taking the night off and assigning "The Golden Boy" Chino Guinto, his prized downline, as substitute. 


Mahaba looked to be on his way to a resounding pinfall win after nailing Guinto with a massive pop-up powerbomb, only for the rest of The Network to run in and break up the pin for the DQ. 

Mahaba was left lying after the beatdown, but still picked up his first career victory. 


Winner: Rederick Mahaba via disqualification 


Match #2: Beer Promdi (Kanto Terror & Mark D. Manalo) vs. Los Trabajadores 



Beer Promdi made their long-awaited return to tag team action against a surprise opponent revealed to be the high-flying Los Trabajadores, who were making their main roster debut.


This was said to be an entertaining match, with Beer Promdi picking up the 'W' after a combo Lakas Tama rolling elbow by Kanto Terror chained into a spear by Mark D. Manalo.


Winners: Beer Promdi via pinfall (Lakas Tama/spear combo) 

Match #3: SANDATA vs. The Apocalypse 



After finally snapping his seven-match losing streak with an impressive submission win over Joey Bax of Fighters 4 Hire at Vendetta, SANDATA was looking to build his first-ever winning streak in PWR against the enigmatic Apocalypse.


SANDATA picks up an easy win after interference by Kanto Terror led to The Apocalypse getting counted out—the first match in PWR history to end in this manner.

Winner: SANDATA via count-out

Match #4: "The Senyorito" Jake De Leon & Ralph Imabayashi vs. The Royal Flush ("Classical" Bryan Leo & Main Maxx) 



The second tag match of the evening featured all three men who have ever held the PWR Championship—reigning champion "Classical" Bryan Leo, inaugural champion Jake De Leon, and the recently-deposed Ralph Imabayashi—as well as the most imposing physical presence in PWR today, the hulking Main Maxx.

Miscommunication proved to be the undoing for JDL and Imabayashi, as an errant superkick by "The Senyorito" blasted the Fil-Japanese Sensation by mistake. Bryan Leo capitalized with a Royal Flushdown on a flustered De Leon for the win.


Tempers flared within the face team after the match, with a frustrated Imabayashi confronting De Leon for the superkick miscue.

Winner: The Royal Flush via pinfall (Royal Flushdown on Jake De Leon) 

Match #5—Triple Threat for the PHX Championship: Chris Panzer vs. Bombay Suarez vs. "The Social Media Sinister" Ken Warren (c) 



This match was only the second Triple Threat singles match in PWR history, with the red-hot Ken Warren putting his prized PHX Championship and nine-month winning streak on the line against both his nemesis in Chris Panzer and the reigning MyPW Extreme Division Champion in Bombay Suarez.

This was said to be match of the night, with Bombay reviving his fabled flaming chop against Chris Panzer in one of the match's many highlights.

Ultimately, Suarez's legendary toughness proved to be the deciding factor, bringing down the Social Media Sinister with a devastating Bomb Shelter after the Royal Flush's John Sebastian ran in to assault Panzer mid-match.


Bombay is now the dual PHX Champion and MyPW Extreme Division Champion.

Winner: Bombay Suarez via pinfall (Bomb Shelter on Ken Warren)
