The Manila Wrestling Federation (MWF), the country’s fast rising athletic entertainment brand, will once again please Pinoy Wrestling fans with its yearly extravaganza MWF: Republika 2023, which will be strengthened by the appearance of WWE and ECW icon TAJIRI. The event will take place on April 30, Sunday, at 4:30 PM at Power Mac Center Spotlight PMCS Blackbox at Circuit Makati.
The “Japanese Buzzsaw” TAJIRI, who has won the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on many times as well as Tag Team Championship runs with other wrestling superstars Eddie Guerrero and William Regal, is scheduled to wrestle in the ring with one of MWF’s emerging talents – Bro. Jomar Liwanag.
Liwanag has entertained the MWF fan community since his wrestling debut in 2017, via portraying his unforgettable comedic-yet-sinister character of a Pinoy religious zealot and cult leader.
Also headlining this year’s MWF: Republika is current MWF Pinoy Wrestling Champion Fabio Makisig, who will be defending the unique “Jeepney Belt” against fellow MWF pillar Nigel “Suplex” San Jose. Makisig has faced TAJIRI one-on-one twice in 2019 and had scored a win over the Japanese wrestling legend in their second encounter.
A special triple threat showcase is also set to bolster the event’s already high-profile line-up of matches – featuring “Mr. Philippine Wrestling” Jake De Leon and the “Queen of Philippine Wrestling” Crystal, who will be tested in the ring by Fil-Japanese wrestler Yappy from Japanese wrestling promotion Ice Ribbon.
MWF: Republika also features fan favorites such as El Katipunero with Super P, Aaron Liwanag with Bro. Benny Soriano, CJ Serafin, Danny Zamora, Dabid Ravena, Khayl Sison, Migs Valdez with Frankie Thurteen, Razael, Ken Cifer, St. John Martin, Robin Sane and Main Maxx. Surprise special guests may also appear, alongside newcomers led by Chelsea Marie and Isaiah Valencia.
Tickets to MWF: Republika are available now at Ticket2Me. The event will later be uploaded in episodic form in MWF’s fan-exclusive channel on Gank.
