[FULL RESULTS] PWR Live: Bakbakan sa Bayanihan



Goddamn! There's just no stopping the Philippine Wrestling Revolution as it kicks off Season 4 of its tumultuous existence. The country's top pro wrestling promotion makes its grand return to the Unilab Bayanihan Center on Pioneer Street in Mandaluyong with a red-hot card for the ages at PWR Live: Bakbakan sa Bayanihan.

Just in case you couldn't make it (and shame on you if you couldn't), we've got all of y'all covered with live results as they happen.

Here are the matches lined up for the show:

  • PWR Championship Match: "Beautiful" Billy Suede vs. Chris Panzer (c)
  • PWR Tag Team Championship Match: The Network (James "Idol" Martinez & Alexander Belmonte III) vs. The YOLO Twins (Yohann & Logan Ollores, c)
  • Matira Matibay Match: Jake De Leon vs. Ralph Imabayashi
  • All Out War: The Apocalypse vs. Trian Dela Torre
  • Tag Team Match: Fighters 4 Hire (Joey Bax & Miguel Rosales) vs. John Sebastian & Peter Versoza
  • Tag Team Match: The Punk Dolls (Martivo & Robynn) vs. The KakaiBros (Kh3Ndrick & Mh4rkie)
  • Grudge Match: SANDATA vs. Vlad Sinnsyk
  • Unannounced Matches: Brad Cruz, "The Raging Gamer" Vintendo, "Ang Sagisag ng Sigasig" Dax Xaviera, and "The Anime-zing Fighter" Bolt are all promised to be in action as well

Conspicuously absent is PHX Champion "The Golden Boy" Chino Guinto, whose unfortunate ACL injury has him sidelined indefinitely, striking his supposed defense against Ken Warren off the card. PWR General Manager Mr. Sy has promised to announce a resolution for the PHX scene at this show, and we honestly can't wait.

Also scheduled to make his debut is an intriguing new talent named the Revo-Ranger. Words can't describe the insanity behind this character, so just check out the teaser video below.


Bell time is at 2 PM, so just keep checking back for updates, Revo-Nation!

Pre-Show


Match #1: Trabajador Quatro vs. Brad Cruz


The Revo-Nation was molten for Brad Cruz, who's looking more and more like PWR Champion Chris Panzer by the day. Facing him was the debuting Trabajador Quatro, a masked representative of the Secret Council of Trabajadores.

The two rookies put on an energetic (if slightly sloppy) showing that saw the dashing Cruz hit all his big moves, including a crowd-pleasing Gwapito's Elbow and a flapjack for the win.

Winner: Brad Cruz via pinfall

Match #2: Revo-Ranger vs. a dinosaur (no, really)



Throwaway match that served little more than to introduce the comic absurdity of the Revo-Ranger. A superkick was enough to save the Revo-Nation from the monstrous threat of the raging T-Rex.

Winner: All of us, I guess.

Match #3: Vintendo vs. Bolt


The newly-turned Vintendo looks to be getting into even better shape, and now sports a black and red ensemble to reflect his new "Raging Gamer" persona.

Vintendo dominated Bolt right from the start, manhandling him with moves like a sweet combo atomic drop into a side slam. Bolt fought back after countering a swinging side slam into a DDT, followed by a standing moonsault. Vintendo earned a DQ though after blasting Bolt with a blatant low blow as he scaled the ropes for an apparent moonsault attempt. A post-match High Score choke slam left the Anime-zing Fighter knocked out and in need of medical attention.

Winner: Bolt via disqualification

Match #1—All Out War: Trian Dela Torre vs. The Apocalypse


Whoever thought the undersized Dela Torre was short on heart was sorely mistaken. He took the fight to Apocalypse right from the start, reversing an Old School attempt into a top-rope Ace Crusher, then unleashing a barrage of fidget spinners, soap bubbles, and a fly swatter against the Pinoy Nightmare. A ukulele and miniature stepladder came into play as well. Even GrabCamus actually got involved, powerbombing Apocalypse into a pile of Spider-Man figures.

But Apoc couldn't be stopped. A missed splash by Dela Torre marked the beginning of the end. An STO, a top-of-the-ladder God's Mercy, and a Death Bell onto the pile of toys was enough to finally put his pesky nemesis away.

PWR senior official Matt Roxas came out to the ring afterwards to crown Apocalypse as the company's first All Out War Champion, handing him a belt made of the remnants of the original PWR Championship.

Winner AND NEW AOW CHAMPION: The Apocalypse

Match #2—Tag Team Match: The KakaiBros (Kh3Ndrick & Mh4rckie) vs. Punk Dolls (Martivo & Robynn)



The Punk Dolls seemed to have the KakaiBros' number from the opening bell, mind-gaming them into losing their cool, and setting them up for some crowd-popping moves like a suicide dive from Martivo to the outside.

Kh3Ndrick and Mh4rckie fought back with some great chemistry, but were no match for their flamboyant foes. Dual top rope headscissors by the rainbow beshies led to simultaneous finishers for the decisive pin.

Winners: The Punk Dolls via double pin

Match #3: Vlad Sinnsyk vs. SANDATA


Fast-paced, high-energy match that had both men putting on the most polished showing on the card so far.

SANDATA was dazzling with his array of standing Pagbasag ranas, a top-rope tornado DDT that had Sinnsyk reeling, and a pair of buzzsaw kicks that nearly put the match away. Sinnsyk dodged a Huling Bala attempt, and proceeded to crush the dazed Pinoy Tecnico with a nearly-botched Muscle Buster that hit just enough to secure the victory for the crazed madman.

Winner: Vlad Sinnsyk via pinfall

Match #4—PWR Tag Team Championship: The Network vs. The YOLO Twins (c)



Bayanihan Center was nuclear in anticipation of a title change, with the YOLO Twins ripe for a defeat against their archrivals from the past few months.

The Network was riding high with the momentum of avenging their fallen brother Chino Guinto, and looked to have the belts sewn up with a Double Pay-In to one of the Ollores brothers. Twin magic and a healthy serving of Ken Warren interference proved to be the secret formula for victory, with a switcheroo leading to a double superkick and a Two Night Stand to Idol for the resounding win.

Winners AND STILL PWR Tag Team Champions: The YOLO Twins via pinfall

Promo Segment: Chino Guinto Speaks



PHX Champion Chino Guinto came out to address the crowd regarding the status of his championship. He first announced that his ACL tear will have him out of action for 8-10 months, and formally relinquishes the Hybrid X belt

Match #5: Ken Warren vs. Dax Xaviera


What a coming-out party for Dax Xaviera. From pre-show tag team jobber to legitimate singles star in just one match after a scintillating upset over former PHX Champion Ken Warren, who was perhaps looking too far ahead of this impromptu match.

Xaviera showed off why he's considered one of the best athletic up-and-comers in PWR today, dodging a Wi-Fi attempt and rolling up Warren for the huge win—the biggest yet in his career.

Winner: Dax Xaviera via pinfall

Match #6—Tag Team Match: Fighters 4 Hire vs. Peter Versoza & John Sebastian


If you came in hoping for a well-directed technical masterpiece, you were in for a big surprise. Both teams wrestled an entertaining trainwreck of a match, which featured three referees getting knocked out and all sorts of foreign objects getting brought into the ring.

All the chaos led to the battle getting thrown out, with the PWR locker room finally emptying out to pull the antagonist pairs apart.

Winner: No-contest

Match #7—Matira Matibay Match: Ralph Imabayashi vs. Jake De Leon



Two of PWR's biggest alphas and best ring generals laid it all on the line in a classic war that will likely go down as one of the most brutal in the company's history.

De Leon surged right out of the gate, dominating Imabayashi with such trademark moves as his Hampas Lupa senton and a superkick fiesta. Imabayashi wrested the advantage back after a bad landing by JDL left him with a tweaked knee.

JDL tried to fight back, surprising Imabayashi with a Sonic Crusher out of nowhere—Ralph's own move!—and eventually cinching in the Inasal Lock. In the end, Imabayashi capitalized on De Leon's bad wheel to keep him down for the ten-count after a hangman's Sonic Crusher off the ropes.

Winner: Ralph Imabayashi via ten-count

Match #8—PWR Championship: Billy Suede vs. Chris Panzer (c)



Absolute madness. The two superstars put on an absolute legendary match that saw multiple two-counts, high spots galore, finisher kickouts, and more drama than you'll see on TV.

In the end, Suede nailed Panzer with a soaring Asai DDT to become the new PWR Champion.

Winner AND NEW PWR Champion: Billy Suede via pinfall
