The Shado-Pan Showdown PvP Brawl talks place on the Tiger's Peak Arena map. Teams of five players each will fight for control of the Arena's middle portion. Once you gain control, you will activate one of two bosses (depending on your team).

The first team to defeat the boss wins the match, claiming victory and some "sweet rewards" in the process. We suggest using a dungeon-like team comp, for example, one Tank, one Healer, and three DPS. 

WoW Shado-Pan Showdown Rewards

Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory in the Shado-Pan PvP Brawl Showdown. These rewards depend on the expansion you are playing and what level you are at. 

You should receive some Conquest or other PvP points to purchase gear with as a reward, and since this game mode is quite fun, there's really no reason not to try it out.
