    Mass Exodus: PWOGs, MSG, and Staff Leave PWR


    Last night, several members of the PWR roster and staff issued a joint resignation statement on social media. The names included #PWOGs Jake De Leon and Ken Warren, MSG's Mr. Sy, Chris Panzer, SANDATA, and Main Maxx, and staff members Maow Del Rosario, Matt Del Rosario, Chai Del Rosario, Ouel Babasa, and Czarina Saño.


    "For the last six years, we have been incredibly fortunate to live out our childhood dreams of being in the professional wrestling industry. Through our time in PWR, we've been able to pursue this career we never thought was even possible, be part of the biggest locally produced wrestling events to date, and meet so many people whom we have learned from along the way—some of whom we can even call friends for life," the statement read. "That is why after much thought and reflection, we have made the extremely difficult decision to step away from Philippine Wrestling Revolution."

    The individuals said that one of the reasons for their resignation is the alleged bullying and toxicity that have manifested within PWR's culture in the last few years, which "has affected us and the people around us in a negative manner."

    "This decision to leave comes from a desire to maintain our own physical, mental, and emotional well-being, especially during such a trying time as the current pandemic. While we remain eternally grateful for all of the opportunities that we've gotten through PWR, it pains us to admit that we are no longer comfortable remaining with the company at the time," the statement continued.

    The mass exodus shocked fans here and abroad, as well as international talent who've worked with the company in the past. Many of them have wished the individuals the best of luck in their future endeavors, while others speculated on where the talents will be headed next.

    Although the individuals haven't addressed these speculations, they still expressed their gratitude to the community. "Thank you, Revo-Nation, for having believed in us and for putting your faith in us. Our dream does not end here. We'll just be living it out in a different way moving forward. Stay safe."
