The road to Wrevolution X officially begins at PWR Path of Gold on March 17th, 2PM, at the Power Mac Center Spotlight! The main event is the 4th annual Path of Gold Tournament, featuring 20 PWR stars who will all be competing for the coveted Path of Gold Trophy. The trophy grants the winner a rare opportunity to contend for any of the top championship titles at PWR’s biggest show of the year, Wrevolution X.
PLUS: all four championship titles – the PWR Championship, the PHX Championship, the PWR Tag Team Championships, and the All Our War Championship – will be defended at PWR Path of Gold 2019 live show.
The entire landscape of PWR can change in a blink of an eye. Here are some of the matches you can look forward to at PWR Path of Gold 2019.
THE FOURTH ANNUAL ‘PATH OF GOLD’ TOURNAMENT
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the past Path of Gold Tournaments, it’s to expect the unexpected. There’s no telling who just might win it all!
Featuring 20 wrestlers, it is Philippine Wrestling Revolution’s biggest, most important annual tournament. Two wrestlers start off in the ring, and every 90 seconds, another enters to join in on the chaos. The objective of each wrestlers is to eliminate as many opponents as they can – via pinfall or submission – until only one remains. The last wrestler to survive wins the Path of Gold Trophy, granting him or her an instant championship match of their choosing at Wrevolution X.
Each of the past winners of the Path of Gold Tournament – Jake De Leon, Chris Panzer, and Ken Warren – have so far been successful in capturing their chosen championships at Wrevolution X.
Who do you think will win the Tournament this year? And will he or she be able to keep tradition and win his/her chosen title at Wrevolution X?
PWR CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Ralph Imabayashi (c) vs. Rederick Mahaba
Former tag partners. Former best friends. A championship match years in the making. Rederick Mahaba had always been by Ralph Imabayashi’s side – supporting, cheering, and loving – that it’s almost impossible to see the two apart. Mahaba was there when Imabayashi first won his PWR Championship, Mahaba would be there to do Imabayashi’s in-ring introductions, and Mahaba would always be there to help Imabayashi up on his feet after every successful title defense. It was the perfect relationship; the perfect picture of friendship; the epitome of love and respect. But alas, as special as their relationship was, it now finally sees its end.
Ralph Imabayashi had been consumed and heavily burdened by the immense responsibilities of being Kampeon ng Pilipinas, that he had pushed everyone around him – his friends, and those who love and respect him – aside, including his biggest supporter Rederick Mahaba. For days, and then for months, Rederick Mahaba tried to fix things and to win his best friend back, but the damage now seems irreparable. And now, Rederick Mahaba must take away from Ralph Imabayashi the source of their pain, the PWR Championship.
PHX CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: John Sebastian (c) vs. Ken Warren
After months of demanding his one-on-one championship rematch, Ken Warren is now finally getting his wish as he faces John Sebastian for the Philippine Excellence Championship!
The road to this rematch was long and brutal for Ken Warren. After winning the 2018 Path of Gold Trophy, he had successfully won the PHX Championship from Mike Madrigal at Wrevolution X of the same year, but losing it to Jake De Leon a couple of months later. Since then, he had not been granted a one-on-one rematch.
He now finds himself one full year after winning the 2018 Path of Gold with one more shot to become PHX Champion. Ken Warren is the inaugural PHX Champion, and is in the running to become the only 3-time title-holder.
PWR TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Naughty Boys (c) vs. The YOLO Twins
The YOLO Twins are b-b-b-back from the dead! Yohann and Logan Ollores find themselves back in the championship scene after beating 3 other tag teams in the recently-concluded Tag Team Tournament for #1 Contendership for the PWR Tag Team Titles.
Yohann and Logan will be facing the Naughty Boys of Philippine Wrestling – Evan Carleaux and Trian Dela Torre – for their PWR Tag Team Championships, and will be coming in with momentum on their side. On the other hand, Carleaux and Dela Torre will both be coming into their title defense after tough losses at the previous PWR LIVE show. Trian Dela Torre lost in a one-off tag team match with Jhemherlhynn against the team of Cali Nueva and Jaye Sera; and Evan Carleaux lost in a PWR Championship match against Ralph Imabayashi.
Will the inaugural PWR Tag Team Champions, Yohann and Logan Ollores, be able to clinch the titles from the Naughty Boys? Or will Evan Carleaux and Trian Dela Torre live to fight another day and be successful in their mission to defend the Tag Team Division?
ALL OUT WAR CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Dax Xaviera (c) vs. Robynn
Robynn is back in action at PWR! During her months-long absence from the squared circle, her Punk Dolls tag team partner Martivo was able to show the Revo-Nation just how formidable and dominant he can be as a singles performer. Of course, Robynn wants to show everyone that she, too, can dominate on her own, and will do so in the biggest way she possibly can: by going after Dax Xaviera’s All Out War Championship at PWR Path of Gold 2019.
Dax Xaviera is a crazy and dangerous man. He is known to do some pretty crazy stuff – like striking people with arnis sticks to the head, and dishing out a million slingblades on his opponents – all in the name of his beloved All Out War Championship; or as he fondly calls it, his “AOWrora”. Dax’s All Out War Championship is everything to him. He is obsessed with it, he is consumed by it. Robynn will have to fight smart and fight with heart if she is to go head-to-head with someone like Dax Xaviera.
INTERNATIONAL WRESTLING TALENTS MAKE THEIR WAY TO PWR!
In addition to the highly-anticipated Path of Gold Match and with all Philippine Wrestling Revolution championships being on the line, PWR Path of Gold 2019 will also host a few international talents that will be making their PWR debut!
The first international talent to make their PWR debut is “Dynomite Soul” Eric Walker who’s been making waves all over the world. He’s wrestled in places such as the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Korea, and he’s looking to make some waves in the Philippines next. The second international talent we’ll get to see is Masa Takanashi from Japan’s Dramatic Dream Team promotion. Takanashi is a former KO-D Openweight Champion and former two-time DDT Extreme Division Champion in his own right and he’s looking to bring his brand of Japanese professional wrestling to PWR!
These are just some of the exciting matchups that you can expect at PWR Path of Gold 2019 but there’s still so much more to see.
