MWF tapes episodes for 'Aksyonovela TV' weekly online wrestling show

MANILA, Philippines – Did you miss weekly Pinoy wrestling shows, like how it was done in the late 80s?

The Manila Wrestling Federation (MWF) is bringing back that spirit, as it holds its first shoots with a live audience for its online show, "Aksyonovela TV," airing Wednesdays at 7 pm on their official YouTube channel.

MWF will tape 4 new episodes featuring its very own wrestlers, as well as visiting wrestlers from Singapore and Australia, at the Barangay Apolonio Samson Basketball Court in Balintawak, Quezon City, on Saturday, November 16, starting 7 pm.

MWF plans to air the first episode from these tapings on November 27.

Veronica Litton, MWF Head of Creatives, said their wrestling promotion will be producing "original content each and every week, showcasing MWF's Storytellers and our unique, emotionally-charged brand of professional wrestling."

"This is essentially what Pinoy wrestling fans have been wanting for almost 20 years: a readily available weekly wrestling product that brings together the best wrestlers in the Philippines and the best in Asia and beyond," she added.

Among the stories playing out in these upcoming "Aksyonovela TV" episodes are:
