It’s been an age-old story ever since the dawn of time. Love and Hate will always be at odds against each other and at Wrevolution X, the story will remain the same as the Laborer of Love, Rederick Mahaba, will take on the Harbinger of Hate, The Apocalypse. Not only will this be the first meeting between these two larger than life wrestlers but this match will be an ALL OUT WAR match where ANYTHING GOES and pinfall or submission can happen absolutely anywhere. Let’s take a look back at the year both competitors have had leading up to this epic clash.
Rederick Mahaba has had an interesting year leading up to Wrevolution X. At the previous installment of the biggest show in Philippine Wrestling, Rederick Mahaba would finally defeat his rival, James “IDOL” Martinez and claim his first ever victory using his patented Jaccolade maneuver. The following month would continue Mahaba’s momentum as he defeated a reluctant Ken Warren via countout. The king of schlong style would have his momentum stopped by the athletic Peter Versoza which would lead him to go a new route and help a good friend and meet a familiar foe. Rederick Mahaba would team up with Ralph Imabayashi to form the charismatic tag team MTNH and they would close off 2016 with a triumphant win over The Network. The Intimate Warrior’s 2017 would be a different story, however, as Rederick Mahaba would fall to The Network’s Anthony Belmonte III in Bagong Yugto thanks to an assist from Chino Guinto. That would not faze the Afro-desiac one bit as he would come back to defeat Anthony Belmonte III and rightfully claim his spot in the Path of Gold match and this is where things would take a turn for the worst. After entering the Path of Gold match and clearing house with Ralph Imabayashi, an enraged Apocalypse would enter the ring and lay waste to Rederick Mahaba, seemingly injuring the Intimate Warrior. Mahaba would have his revenge at the next event by feigning injury and taking away The Apocalypse’s chance at becoming PHX champion which leads him to where he is today.
The Apocalypse’s year, on the other hand, has been once again full of destruction but also devoid of gold. After handily disposing Beer Promdi at the previous Wrevolution X, The Apocalypse would aim for the the highest source of power in the promotion, namely the PWR Title. He would fall short in claiming an opportunity against John Sebastian and Chris Panzer in a 3-Way match and the monster would place the blame for his failure on the leader of the Panzer Army. The two would meet in ALL OUT WAR where the valiant Panzer would have his back sliced open by a nasty light tube from The Apocalypse. After defeating Chris Panzer, The Apocalypse would once again have a chance at the PWR championship after interfering in a title match between John Sebastian and Jake De Leon. The 3-Way ALL OUT WAR match that ensued at Path of Gold would tear the roof off the building but alas, The Apocalypse would once again fall short of claiming gold. Obviously angered by the happenings, the monster from your deepest darkest fears would proceed to take out his frustrations on Rederick Mahaba by repeatedly hitting the Intimate Warrior with a crowbar that eventually took him out of the Path of Gold match and almost out for good. This, however, would be a big mistake on The Apocalypse’s end as Rederick Mahaba would retaliate by costing the Apocalypse the chance to become PHX champion showing everyone that love will not bow down to hate.
Absolutely anything can happen in this ALL OUT WAR match. The Apocalypse is well-versed in ALL OUT WAR matches as he has spent most of his career in this environment which puts Mahaba in a clear disadvantage. Where the King of Schlong Style lacks in experience, however, he makes up for in a whole lot of heart and with the stipulations as they are, it’s anyone’s ballgame. Will love be able to conquer evil at Wrevolution X or will The Apocalypse continue to spread destruction everywhere he goes?
