So tix go on sale on Thursday... I was panicking at 7:59pm. 12 men have been announced, and I just noticed something.... where's the Bucks? The Bucks havent missed a BOLA in years. No Smash Bros either. Are they going to be the last 4? I doubt it. Maybe one more match to add to their series of matches.

2012 Battle of Los Angeles takes place September 1 & 2!

Postby PWG_Silverback » Mon Jul 23, 2012 8:46 pm

Originally, the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles was envisioned as a two-day tournament, like the majority of previous Battle of Los Angeles events. However, there were some very practical obstacles standing in the way of a two-day event taking place. First, American Legion Hall #308 in Reseda, CA, was available on September 1, but had another event scheduled for September 2. Second, 2006 Battle of Los Angeles winner Davey Richards had a scheduling conflict that prevented him from competing in this year's tournament. Third, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen was scheduled to face see Comedy World Champion Louis C.K. in Atlantic City, NJ on September 1.

Fortunately, due to a cancellation at the Legion Hall, September 2 opened up, and a two-day tournament was now possible. On top of that, Davey Richards was able to resolve his scheduling conflict earlier today, and asked to be added to the tournament, even if it had to be as an alternate. Finally, Kevin Steen's loss to El Generico in the 2011 Battle of Los Angeles finals was so galling to Steen that the World Champion canceled his vacation in order to, in his words, "win the whole thing."

With those factors in mind (and a couple extra Louis C.K. tickets on StubHub), we are pleased to announce that the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles will now take place on September 1 and 2, 2012, with 16 competitors fighting to call themselves a Battle of Los Angeles winner!

When the link becomes available (on Wednesday, July 25 at 8:00PM PDT) it'll be either on the front page or on the release. I think they also throw it up on their twitter and facebook as well.

Im really loving these promos, I really hope they end up on DVD

Also does anyone else want all the compediters to be introduced before the tournament like they used to do? To me it gives it a big time feel.

Like many of the fans, I follow @OfficialPWG twitter account and I have it set up so that their tweets come to my phone as text messages. If you're not aware of how to do this, just google it. Fairly easy and the twitter text messages are much faster than the board announcements.

Please make these the matches for night 1:

Kevin Steen vs El Generico
Sami Callihan vs Adam Cole
Ricochet vs Michael Elgin
Drake Younger vs B-Boy
Brian Cage vs Willie Mack
Roderick Strong vs Davey Richards
Eddie Edwards vs Kyle O'Reilly
Joey Ryan vs TJ Perkins

This line up will sell out Night 1 and leaving Night 2 a mystery. Usually not alot of people show up for night 1 just to show up for Night 2. With this line up... who would want to miss it?

I'll be honest....Up until last year's BOLA, BOLA from 2009-2010 was....dissapointing when it came to match consistency. Hell, just having a Night 1 on the same level as the 2008 one would make me super happy.

I mean seriously, PWG...knock this one out of the park this year. BOLA needs to get back to being THE wrestling tourney of the year.

That's an awesome line up except I've seen some of those matches quite a few times. How about Joey Ryan vs Adam Cole, Sami Callihan vs TJP, El Generico vs Drake Younger, And Kevin Steen vs B-Boy? BTW, where's Chuck?

I agree, why have all matches we have seen before, how bout Joey vs. Davey? It never happened because Davey vacated the title. How bout Willie vs. B-Boy, Willie vs. Eddie Sami Vs. Davey, Ricochet vs. Davey, Ricochet vs. Roddy. There are so many posibilities for fresh matchups.

I think the one match that everyone wants to see is Ricochet vs. Elgin

Ehh, BBOY and Steen did their thing one time at a show in 06....think it was Beyond the Blunderdome. It was OK. Went a little too long.

Just an FYI but Callihan vs. Richards once happened in a torunament, last year's 16 Carat Gold tournament.

Just watched the promos, some thoughts:

1. Please do these for more shows

2. Sami is pretty funny when he wants to be, he wants birthday presents sep. 1

3. I have been watching Elgin for close to a year and I think that was the second time I've ever heard him speak(for a whole 23 seconds)

4. Roddy has to be related to Ryan Reynolds
