In the Philippines, many people have seen the two Filipino TV networks ABS-CBN and GMA knock heads with their top show hosts Joey de leon (GMA’s “Eat Bulaga”) and Willie Revillame (ABS-CBN’s “Wowowwee”).

Both are popular game shows but similar to almost like America’s battle between WWE (World Wrestling Federation at the time) and WCW (World Championship Wrestling) in the 90’s when both shows on at the same time sparred each other for ratings and got personal with storylines mocking the other.  The same situation in the Philippines.

Fans of the popular shows have even joined in the fray by posting videos on YouTube supporting one over the other.

But on October 17th, it appears the rivalry between the two hosts maybe over.  At the Extreme Award held by the Philippine Star at the Embassy Super Club, many wanted to see the two hosts appear and pretty much see this rivalry end.

Winning the award category in television was Willie Revillame who in his thank you speech said “I would like to share this aware to a suprememe talent, supreme icon, my idol, Mr. Joey de Leon.  I share this award with you.”

The two stood stand by side made up and even cracked jokes at each other ending their rivalry.
