The 2018 Battle of Los Angeles concluded on Sunday as Pro Wrestling Guerrilla returned to the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles for the third straight night.

- Trevor Lee pinned Brody King in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament second round match

- Jeff Cobb pinned Rey Horus in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament second round match

- Shingo Takagi submitted Robbie Eagles in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament second round match

- Joey Janela pinned CIMA in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament second round match

- WALTER pinned Jonah Rock in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament second round match

- Bandido pinned Flamita in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament second round match

- PWG Tag Team Champions The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz) defeated The Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr. & Fenix) to retain their titles

This was as good as expected with these two teams.

- Jeff Cobb pinned Trevor Lee in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament semifinal match

Cobb won in about 15 seconds, but it got one of the biggest pops of the night.

- Bandido pinned Joey Janela in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament semifinal match

They had a typical crazy over-the-top Janela match.

- Shingo Takagi pinned WALTER in a Battle of Los Angeles tournament semifinal match

As stiff as expected, and WALTER may have even broken his own scale of amplitude with the most sickening chop that literally worried the crowd that Takagi might not be able to continue.

- PCO, Darby Allin, Puma King, Dan Barry & Jody Fleisch defeated Timothy Thatcher, David Starr, T-Hawk, DJZ & Adam Brooks in a 10-man tag match

- Jeff Cobb defeated Bandido and Shingo Takagi in a three-way elimination match to win the 2018 Battle of Los Angeles

Bandido eliminated Takagi before it came down to Bandido vs. Cobb. For about five to 10 minutes there, Bandido was the most passionately loved babyface of all time. Cobb hit the Tour of the Islands off the second rope and the match was obviously over, but Cobb quickly picked Bandido up, shoved him into the ropes, and hit another Tour of the Islands in the middle of the ring for the win.

As much as the crowd wanted Bandido to win,  the inevitability of the finish prevented a letdown as they counted the pin.

Cobb and Bandido both gave great speeches afterwards, including Bandido bringing his dad into the ring.
