Jump to: navigation, search

The Battle of Los Angeles tournament (the BOLA) is an annual independent wrestling tournament in North America, run and promoted by Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. Over the years, the tournament has attracted numerous famous independent wrestlers from A.J. Styles and Christopher Daniels to Bryan Danielson.

The tournament setup[edit]

In the first year of the Battle of Los Angeles there were sixteen participants, with eight opening round matches, four quarterfinal matches, two semifinal matches, and a final. In 2006 the tournament was expanded to 24 participants, which caused the addition of another eight person bracket and created three semifinals matches and an elimination three-way final match. In 2008 the tournament returned to its 16 man format. In 2011, the tournament was completely revamped, taking place for the first time as a one night tournament with only eight participants.

2006[edit]

The 2006 BOLA was held on September 1, September 2 and September 3, 2006 in Reseda, California.[3][4][5] The tournament saw the PWG returns of The Briscoe Brothers, after no-showing a number of events, and Super Dragon, who had been injured by the Dynasty earlier in the year.

Alex Koslov was originally scheduled to take part in the tournament, but was replaced by Austin Aries, after going on a six month learning excursion to Mexico.[6] After no-showing Threemendous a month earlier, Jay and Mark Briscoe were taken out of the tournament and replaced by Bryan Danielson and Dragon Kid, respectively.[6] However, Danielson separated his shoulder on August 26 in a Ring of Honor match against Colt Cabana[7] and was therefore taken out of the tournament and replaced by Disco Machine.

The 2006 BOLA saw the introduction of wrestlers from Dragon Gate, which was represented by three regulars (Cima, Genki Horiguchi and Dragon Kid), and finished the tournament with a combined 5-3 record.

2008[edit]

The fourth annual BOLA was held on November 1 and November 2, 2008 in Burbank, California.[14][15] The tournament was set to follow the 24 man format of the previous two and take place on the weekend of August 30 and 31, but PWG management was unable to book the talent they wished to for the event and decided to move the event and drop the entrants down to 16. On October 16 PWG announced that 17 participants will be in the tournament, this occurred because the two PWG commissioners (Excalibur and Dino Winwood) couldn't come to a conclusion on who would be the final entrant, which lead to one first round match being a three way dance.

He was replaced by another local newcomer Johnny Goodtime.[21]
