This clip comes from my home country – the Philippines – and showcases the talents (I use that word loosely) of Lawin (Hawk in English) and Max Buwaya (Max Lizard). If you thought Lawin’s vignette was hilarious, wait till you see Max Buwaya happily prancing, or should I say skipping about in the ring like a certain Divas champion from present day.

And notice how he keeps doing that in this match! Don’t let the referee count at the end deceive you – at first I thought Max had won with a two-count, but it’s just bad editing.

I can’t help but love Lawin’s costume! I’d cheer for him for that reason alone.

Lawn Vs. Koko B. Ware- someone needs to make that happen!

Thanks for sharing this interesting bit of footage from your home country! I love getting the chance to see stuff like this.

    I’m not 10 seconds in and I can’t take much more of this.

    This NEEDS an induction. Is there any more info/footage about this promotion or the wrestlers involved?

    Watched a bit of the in-ring work. Needed more practice but I’ve seen worse. I’m wondering though, who brought pro wrestling to the Philipines? Was there programming imported from another country that made some guys want to try it themselves? Was it a a former US, Mexican or Japanese wrestler who moved there and set up a school?

      The man who introduced pro wrestling to the Philippines, albeit briefly, was an entrepreneur/rock musician who’s known for quickly tiring of his projects regardless of how well they’re doing. I was just a small kid back when Pinoy Wrestling came out, so I’m not sure who took care of the training. But at that time, we did get WWF several weeks delayed, so there was a market somehow for a Philippine twist on pro wrestling.

    Wow Vince is having a real hard time programming for a 24 hour network.
