Yes, yes, a million times yes!
Malaysia Pro Wrestling
is Malaysia's very own pro wrestling promotion and training organisation, and they've putting on shows for the past two years for wrestling fans in Southeast Asia. Their first show was subtitled Clash of the Titans and was run in collaboration with Komik Kon Malaysia in 2015.
The first match of the very first show.
Everyone's gotta start somewhere right? The show in 2015 was a success and the founding members carried the momentum into 2016 with MyPW Uprising. The event featured a title belt and a broken wrestling ring by the end of the day. The event was the first salvo of world building for MyPW. Relationships between wrestlers were built to intensify the drama and spectacle of matches.

MyPW put on a total of four shows in 2016, culminating in Wrestlecon in September 2016. The main event saw the Nusantara Prince, Shaukat, and The Ultimate Troll, The D, go head to head for the MyPW World to Regional Championship match. Their rivalry was built up over the four events in 2016 with The D stoking the flames, living up to his name as the ultimate troll. Wrestlecon 2016 was to be the deciding match between the adversaries and the conclusion of the fued... until an unexpected low blow by The D cost Shaukat the championship belt. And so the battle continues.
