When in Manila and a die-hard pro wrestling fan, chances are you can only get your fix through watching wrestling on TV or on YouTube (if you hate the commercials and fast forward through the women’s wrestling matches).
Manila has not had a chance to witness a live wrestling event since 2009 but that will change when WWFX, or the World Wrestling Fan Xperience: Champion Showcase Tour 2012, hits our shores this weekend.
The outfit promises to be the most fan-interactive wrestling promotion this side of the world. One of the ways it plans to prove that is through the WWFX Fan Contest.
The WWFX Fan Contest will give two lucky fans (one male and one female) the chance to be part of the event as either a guest ring announcer for one match, or as a manager, accompanying one of the superstars during his/her match.
To be part of the contest, fans must answer the question, “Who is your favorite Wrestler on WWFX?” and post a picture of themselves holding their ticket to the show and upload it on the show’s like page, https://www.facebook.com/WWFXManila
When WhenInManila.com contributor Stan found out about the contest, he knew he wouldn’t be able to resist the idea of possibly being the guest ring announcer at the event, so he took my pride, swallowed it, and joined the contest.

The contest ends this week and Stan could be days away from living out a boyhood dream. His photo can be found over at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2538463227064&set=o.147318528706454&type=3&theater, where you can find his answer to the question. (Hint: My answer involves the letters M, V, and P)
The WWFX Champion Showcase Tour 2012 is on Saturday, February 4, 7:30 PM, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Among the wrestlers performing live on Saturday are former WWE superstars Carlitos, Chris Master, John Hennigan, Shelton Benjamin, Rhino, MVP, Hurricane Helms, and “Mr. Ass” Billy Gunn.
