With Davey's not-being-able-to-make-it, I'd really like it if the Young Bucks were in BOLA and actually wrestled their respective matches unlike 2010. Seeing at least one of them progressive would be pretty schway too.

It's a shame about Davey.

I'm still hoping Ricochet and Swann are included.

Though I meant to post this idea a week ago - before any announcement that would make this notion null and void - something I feel missing from recent PWG is a connection to bretheren in Japan. With the glut of power-oriented wrestlers in BOLA (Elgin, Cage, Ciampa,) I feel now would be ideal time to bring in one of the BJW boys. Whether it's Sasaki/Okabayahi/Sekimoto...any of these would provide dream match-ups in BOLA. And what do we have besides our dreams?!

It's a real shame that Ricochet misses, but it's hard to complain with PWG... it's still one heck of a line-up.

Of those named, the guys I'd most like to see advance to Night 2 are...

Michael Elgin
Kevin Steen
Roderick Strong
Brian Cage
Kyle O'Reilly
Rich Swann
Johnny Gargano
AR Fox

You could do some awesome combos from there!

Off the top my head I would love to see Kyle O'Reilly v.s Roderick Strong , Drake Younger v.s Willie Mack and Michael Elgin v.s Johnny Gargano .

Why do I get the feeling Willie Mack would not have been in this tournament if Davey did not cancel?

I wish Drake and Kyle had better opponents for Night One. I am expecting both to win and to do big things on Night Two. I could really see a Drake vs. Kyle Finals, although Drake vs. Elgin seems like one of the more likely finals, as well.

Really looking forward to Strong vs. Fox, Elgin vs. Swann, Cage vs. Ciampa and Nese vs. ACH. Steen vs. Chuck should be a pretty funny match, too.

The six man really helps make this an excellent card. I would think that will main event the show and be absolutely amazing.

Time for Strong to fucking win BOLA

He's easily up there with Generico, Steen, and the Bucks as the absolute most reliable, consistent workhorse in PWG.

Seeing him be the one to finally take the title off of Cole and have a Danielson-like run with the title would be awesome.

Because he deserves it.

I wouldn't mind seeing Strong win, especially since this is his EIGHTH tournament appearance, and he's been in the final twice, but has never been able to grab the trophy. But it seems to me Younger almost has to win this.

A final four of Drake/Kyle and Elgin/Strong would be awesome. Doing a Kyle/Strong final would be a nice "surprise" and Kyle could play a great d-bag for Strong to triumph over to finally get his big win.

Now that the 1st round matches have been announced, I'd like to see Elgin, Steen, Gargano, O'Reilly, Younger, ACH, Cage and Fox advance. I wouldn't mind too much if Strong went over Fox, as you then have the potential for a Strong-O'Reilly war, but personally I'd like to see more of Fox. The six-man should be ace too. It'll be great to see Cole and the Bucks team up.

Too late now obviously but I would like to see PWG bring in guys from BJW and DDT as well as Dragon Gate in the future

As for the card for BOLA, its all looking great so far, Elgin vs. any flyer should be good and Taylor vs. Steen will be nice comedy match mixed that both are really good at and hopefully Trent? wins the crowd more against Kyle.

Also interesting fact I realize, at least as of this typing and I'm sure this was intentional on PWG's part as well, but the 6man not only has PWG champions, the Bucks and Cole, together but also the fact they are facing Forever Hooligans, currently the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag champs, teaming up with TJ Perkins, the current TNA X Division champ.

I was kind of surprised, considering their appearance at TEN, that London and/or Kendrick weren't in BOLA. Then again, considering they've both been disappointing in their previous BOLA appearances, maybe it isn't such a bad thing.

I really want Ciampa to win, Ciampa/Elgin at best in the world was an awesome match, I would love to see the rematch at BOLA.

Hey man... I enjoyed the article!

O'Reilly is on a hot streak atm, and winning BoLA would be huge. As you say, potential matches with the likes of Strong, Younger and Elgin whet the appetite, and a programme with Cole makes perfect sense. I make Elgin slight favourite, but I'd be delighted for Kyle.

Thanks for the input. I think it comes down to 3 people:
Michael Elgin
Kyle O'Reilly
Drake Younger

I can't see anyone outside of those three winning this thing, but I've been wrong before...in fact, every single time I predict the BOLA winner haha.
