Sparks will fly when the world’s best Filipino pro wrestlers come home and clash this October at PWR Special: Homecoming, the biggest local pro wrestling event in the country to date.

Two top Pinoy grapplers in former WWE and current Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) star “The Fil-Am Flash” TJ Perkins, better known through his ring name TJP, and NJPW and Ring of Honor (ROH) star “Mr. Athletic” Jeff Cobb will be flying home to wrestle in the premier Philippine wrestling company’s historic event on October 12, 2019 at the ABS-CBN Vertis Tent.

TJP, a former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, winner of the inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Classic, and former Impact Wrestling X Division Champion, is set to face off against former PWR and Philippine Excellence Champion “Mr. Philippine Wrestling” Jake de Leon, as announced on PWR Live: Championship Spirit last July.

Cobb, a former NJPW NEVER Openweight Champion, ROH Television Champion, and Lucha Underground Champion, announced his participation in PWR Special: Homecoming at PWR Renaissance 2019 last August 25.

Also announced for PWR Homecoming is former PWR Champion “Beautiful” Billy Suede, who was last seen in the promotion in 2017.

“We’re committed to advancing the Philippine wrestling scene the best way we can, and there’s no better way to do that than to bring home some of the world’s most famous Filipino talent,” said PWR president Red Ollero. “TJP and Jeff Cobb, as well as other international Filipino wrestlers, have long expressed a desire to wrestle in their home country, and we’re also happy to give them that opportunity for themselves and the Pinoy fans as well,” he added.
