AEW's Lio Rush announced for PWG Battle of Los Angeles 2022


PWG has announced the fourth entrant in the Battle of Los Angeles 2022. 

AEW's Lio Rush will be part of the 2022 BOLA tournament, joining JONAH, Alex Shelley, and Kevin Blackwood who have been announced previously. The Battle of Los Angeles 2022 will be held Saturday, January 29 and Sunday, January 30, the same weekend as WWE's Royal Rumble. 

Rush made his PWG return at November's It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll) event, defeating Davey Richards on that show. That match was Rush's first with the promotion since 2017. 

Since joining AEW, Rush has appeared in two battle royales, a pair of tag matches with Dante Martin as his partner, and a singles match against Rayo on this week's AEW Dark. In addition to his AEW work, Rush is also a regular for NJPW Strong. 

BOLA returns in 2022 after not being held in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
