Possible PWR Show Names Punnier Than PWR Live: The ShawDown



Know what Filipinos love more than intriga, ChickenJoy, and KathNiel? Bad puns, that's what.

Next step: Global franchising. (Image from Pinterest)

Even the Philippine Wrestling Revolution is not immune to this cultural addiction to bad wordplay, giving its local fanbase a giant collective facepalm moment when it declared that its July live event happening on Shaw Boulevard is going to be called "The ShawDown."

Really.

Sorry, PWR. You've opened yourselves up a can of worms, and your fans are lashing back with show names even punnier than your best shot.

Even Cebu Pacific is looking at you funny, and they haven't exactly set the bar high for themselves.


Thanks to this thread in the Smark Gilas-Pilipinas Facebook community, we've got some terrible-slash-awesome show name ideas that will make you regret hiring your Chief Event Naming Officer.

Let the puns begin!

Itching to expand your fanbase to the the eclectic Cubao community? We've got an easy suggestion for you.



We know Makati has been your preferred stomping grounds after your streak of shows at both the Makati Square Arena and the iAcademy Auditorium, but how about expanding your presence into one of the most populous malls in the Makati CBD?



We hear you've been going on various provincial shows over the past few months. We think your Mimaropa loyalists deserve some 30-wrestler over-the-top-rope battle royal action.



Hey, we see your indie influences, and know that a bunch of your guys are big fans of such alumni of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) as AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, CM Punk, and Daniel Bryan. That's why we highly suggest a tribute show to them next time you head out to Central Luzon.



Everybody loves summer time, and the Philippines is home to some of the best beaches in the world. We've got an excellent solution for when you'd like to expand your Visayas fanbase.



And while you're there, beautiful Siquijor would love to host some good old-fashioned Pinoy grappling action, elimination style!



#SorryNotSorry, guys. You brought this on yourselves.

Think you've got puns even worse than these? Let us know in the comments section below. To be honest, we can't exactly say we're looking forward to them, but we'll be more than happy to share the blame.
