They're Coming Home: TJP, Jeff Cobb, and Billy Suede Announced For PWR Special: Homecoming


Philippine Wrestling Revolution may have just changed the game when they announced PWR Special: Homecoming. When it was first announced, the main focus was on former WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP's arrival. That initial announcement already made shockwaves, especially when his opponent was revealed to be none other than Mr. Philippine Wrestling himself, Jake De Leon. Sign me up, please!



But hold on. PWR wasn't done with the announcements just yet. Maybe that's what the PWR office thought when they came up with the event. What if TJP wasn't the only one making a homecoming to the Philippines? What if we could have more?

Enter "Beautiful" Billy Suede. Suede already had a successful stint in PWR two years agoeven capturing the PWR Championship at one point. PWR fans are not strangers to the Beautiful One's work so it felt like a timely and smart decision to bring him back for such a big event.



While his opponent for Homecoming hasn't been announced yet, he swerved everybody by announcing that he will be coming back a month earlier for a match against Mike Madrigal at PWR Live: Beautiful. The local wrestling scene has changed so much compared to when Suede last competed here so it will be a thrill to see him compete against the top guys in the scene today.

Now, if you thought PWR couldn't outdo themselves anymore, then you're completely mistaken. In a move that completely came out of nowhere, PWR is also bringing the one and only "Mr. Athletic" Jeff Cobb to PWR Special: Homecoming. Cobb has worked in NJPW, Lucha Underground, PWG, ROH, and more, plus, he's also held championships in the aforementioned promotions. Seeing Cobb in the flesh should be more than any fan's money's worth.



Again, just to recap: TJP. Billy Suede. Jeff Cobb.

I've never thought a line-up such as this would be possible in the local scene. I'm hoping this is the start of a trend and that Philippine wrestling continues to flourish. This is a show you wouldn't want to miss.


Before I end this article, here are some clips you should watch if you want to find out more about the wrestlers appearing at PWR Special: Homecoming.

Jeff Cobb vs. Shingo Takagi (NJPW G1 Climax 2019 - Day 12)
Jeff Cobb vs. Will Ospreay (ROH/NJPW Supercard 2019)
TJP vs. Gran Metalik (WWE Cruiserweight Classic - Finals)
TJP vs. Kota Ibushi (WWE Cruiserweight Classic - Semifinals)
Billy Suede vs. SANDATA (PWR Renaissance 2017)

P.S. The announcements regarding Billy Suede and Jeff Cobb really came out of nowhere. I wouldn't be surprised if PWR had more tricks up their sleeve for this special show so stay tuned for more updates.
