PWG reveals first round matches for Battle of Los Angeles


The first round matchups are set for this year's Battle of Los Angeles.

There's been one change to the list of participants for the tournament, with PWG announcing that luchador Aramis is replacing Barbaro Cavernario. PWG said that Cavernario isn't able to wrestle in the tournament due to a scheduling conflict.

Aramis will face Fenix in the first round.

BOLA is taking place at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Thursday, September 19, Friday, September 20, and Sunday, September 22. First round matches will be held over the first two shows. The remainder of the tournament will take place on the final night, with it culminating in a three-way elimination match.

If current PWG World Champion Jeff Cobb doesn't win BOLA, the winner will get a future shot at his title.

Here are the first round matches for the tournament:

Night one --

  • Jeff Cobb vs. Daisuke Sekimoto
  • Jonathan Gresham vs. Artemis Spencer
  • Darby Allin vs. Black Taurus

  • Bandido vs. Laredo Kid
  • Orange Cassidy vs. David Starr
  • Pentagon Jr. vs. Tony Deppen
  • Fenix vs. Aramis

Five non-tournament matches have also been announced. Pentagon Jr. & Fenix vs. Bandido & Flamita is set for night one, along with Joey Janela & Alex Zayne vs. Tony Deppen & Blake Christian.

On night three, Aussie Open will face The Dark Order (Evil Uno & Stu Grayson). It will be a Tag Team Championship match if Aussie Open win the titles from The Rascalz on night two.
