[FULL RESULTS] PWR: Path of Gold 2017


Couldn't make it to the Philippine Wrestling Revolution's second show of the year, PWR: Path of Gold 2017? That's why we're here! We've got you covered with live results from the beautiful Unilab Bayanihan Center in Mandaluyong City.

Here's how the card stacked up:


  • PWR Championship Match—All Out War: Jake De Leon vs. The Apocalypse vs. John Sebastian (c)
  • PHX Championship Match: Main Maxx vs. Peter Versoza (c)
  • 20-Wrestler Path of Gold Match
  • Winner Enters The Path of Gold Match: Rederick Mahaba vs. Alexander Belmonte III of The Network
  • Special Attraction Match: "Beautiful" Billy Suede vs. Blackzilla
  • Tag Team Match: Delirium (Dax Xaviera & Dan Ericson) vs. Mystery Opponents


Let's get to it.

Pre-Show


Match #1: Evan Carleaux vs. McKata


Both men were fresh call-ups from PWR's Boot Camp program making their debut in a pro wrestling ring. This was a high-energy match that saw the cocky Carleaux steal his first win with a low blow followed by a unique submission he calls the Tech Noir.

Winner: Evan Carleaux via submission

Match #2: "Beautiful" Billy Suede vs. Blackzilla


Short but intense battle that had the Fil-Canadian ECCW star squeeze by the hulking Blackzilla with an enzuigiri-flying splash combo.


Blackzilla was reportedly hampered with a groin pull early on in the match—an advantage the "The Beautiful One" was more than happy to capitalize on to chalk up the dominant win.

Winner: "Beautiful" Billy Suede via pinfall


Main Show


Match #1: Dan Ericson vs. Dax Xaviera


The two Delirium members were booked for action at the show, but with no opponent initially announced. An absent Mr. Sy declared that both men would have to face each other in singles competition, with a slot in the 20-wrestler Path of Gold match at stake.


The two friends put on a high-gear match that saw Xaviera impressing the crowd with a top-rope missile dropkick, only for Ericson to fight back with an HBK-esque flying elbow. Xaviera countered an O'Connor roll into a small package for the win and a slot in the PoG match.

Winner: Dax Xaviera via pinfall


Match #2—Path of Gold Spot at Stake: Alexander Belmonte III vs. Rederick Mahaba


Two of the biggest tanks on the PWR roster collided in a rematch from last month's Bagong Yugto with even bigger stakes than last time: Rederick Mahaba's spot in the Path of Gold match.


AB3 attempted to steal the advantage early on, ambushing Mahaba during his entrance. The Intimate Warrior fought back, locking in a sweet & sour Jaccolade for the submission win.

Winner: Rederick Mahaba via submission


Match #3—PHX Championship: Main Maxx vs. Peter Versoza (c)


Main Maxx was a house on fire right from the opening bell, pulverizing the PHX Champion with a barrage of suplexes and clubbing blows. Versoza fought back on the outside, running Maxx into the ringpost and following up with a pair of DDTs in the ring.

Maxx looked to be on his way to regaining the PHX Championship with a monster powerbomb out of the corner followed by an End of Days. The two traded high-impact moves, including a Versoza superplex, a Maxx Blitzkrieg, and a Karne Norte that looked like it would be enough to help P to the V retain the title. In the end, a single Petegree was enough to put away Silent Rage for the three-count.


Winner AND STILL PHX Champion: Peter Versoza


Match #4—PWR Championship: Jake De Leon vs. The Apocalypse vs. John Sebastian (c)


The ring looked like the hardware aisle at Shopwise from the start, with baking pans, trash cans, canes, and kendo sticks all coming into play in the early going.


JDL provided the match's first technical highlight, soaring high for a flying bodypress that laid out both his opponents followed by a rolling corner cannonball on the Apocalypse that shattered a trashcan. The three also dazzled with a Tower of Doom that saw Sebastian powerbomb JDL as he attempted a top-rope Alipin Drop on the Apocalypse.

Sebastian capitalized on a Death Bell by the Apocalypse onto JDL, smashing the PWR Championship onto the masked monster to disrupt the pinfall, then nailing a dazed Senyorito with a belt-assisted Killshot to preserve his reign for another month.


Winner AND STILL PWR Champion: John Sebastian
