It would be ideal if he was just booked for BOLA, that way we could have gotten a SPPT match (if TK is booked) on the night he isn't in a first round match. But canceling on a booking is not a good thing either, expecially with all the Riddle stuff of late. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little nervous about another Gallagher situation as well.

True but honestly, its no big loss since its Chikara and them booking it outside the US plus for Banks, its a huge opportunity to work BOLA over KOT anyways, granted with the Riddle stuff that hopefully won't effect Riddle's spot in BOLA this year either, so I say its better to not risk any problems and just cancel one appearance, preferably King of Trios since UK fans already seen Banks already and this is good for Banks to work in front of a different crowd.

Also happy for Dijak to debut, hoping for Jimmy Havoc or Joey Janela and some surprise Japanese talents as well, gotta agree with Australian talent as well just to give it a more worldwide feeling.

As long as my boy TK is in I will be happy no matter who else is booked.

I don't see Aussie talent in this years BOLA. Next year is way more likely, all the signs are there with Shooter associated with Progress (and we have seen Excalibur definitely watches Progress) and will debut in that company at some point, Mark Davis working over there, and in November Travis's UK visa expires and he will be working MCW with TK so more eyes should be over there. All the signs are there for a 2018 Aussie breakout. I'm predicting next year we get some in BOLA.

Another guy I can see this year is Flash Morgan Webster. And Jimmy Havoc would not surprise me at all. Also I talked to Haskins a couple months back, he has not signed with WWE. As for US guys, who knows, Yehi would be cool. And Japanese talent is always welcome, as Japanese wrestling has a lot of history in BOLA's history with CIMA and Tozawa.

I guess to note, with Cody Rhodes currently ROH champion, it seems very likely that Cody at the very least won't be participating in BOLA at least in the tournament itself.

Elgin's been red-hot this past year, f that noise. Word is Omega's going to be in ROH more often for the rest of the year; I wonder if that will lead to more PWG appearances for him? I'd be all in on that.

New entrants are Jeff Cobb, Trevor Lee, and the debuting Flash Morgan Webster! Nice. After Friday's anniversary show, there will have been 12 debuts in PWG so far this year. BOLA's 10 entrants in, and already has 5 debuting competitors.

I really REALLY hope tickets aren't on sale July 20th as Comic-Con is going on on that weekend and getting tickets will be a lot harder for a lot of fans and stress everyone out during that weekend.

Yeah, agreed but from the looks of it, I feel PWG won't be even done finishing announcing participants of BOLA by the time Comic Con happens

I'd like to see Rock vs. Cobb. It would be like watching two asteroids colliding.

Well, the guys who wanted TK Cooper in got their wish! And the BOLA line-up is complete-Flamita, Keith Lee, WALTER, Travis Banks, Rey Fenix, Dezmond Xavier, Donovan Dijak, Jeff Cobb, Trevor Lee, Flash Morgan Webster, Zack Sabre Jr., Sammy Guevara, Mark Haskins, Jonah Rock, Brian Cage, Rey Horus, Marty Scurll, Michael Elgin, TK Cooper, Matt Sydal, Sami Callihan, Matthew Riddle, Ricochet, and Penta el Zero M! Tough to pick a winner this year. That's 11 Americans, 4 Mexicans, 3 Englishmen, 2 Kiwis, 1 Austrian, 1 Australian, 1 Welshman, and 1 Canadian, by the way. Let's just hope this line-up stays.

I legitimately jumped up and screamed when I saw the TK Cooper tweet. So excited. I really hope we get Power Trip vs Young Bucks.

Jonah Rock tweeted a gif of himself vs Zack from NOAH. I would love to see that match, and it would be a great first impression for Rock.

Jonah vs. Cobb would be pretty awesome too.
Little bit of info here-
Flamita, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
Keith Lee, 1st BOLA
WALTER, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
Travis Banks, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
REY FENIX, 3rd BOLA (3 consecutive appearances)
Dezmond Xavier, 1st BOLA
Donovan Dijak, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
Jeff Cobb, 2nd BOLA (2nd consecutive)
Trevor Lee, 4th BOLA (4th consecutive)
Flash Morgan Webster, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
Zack Sabre Jr., 4th BOLA (4th consecutive, '15 winner)
Sammy Guevara, 1st BOLA
Mark Haskins, 2nd BOLA (2nd consecutive)
Jonah Rock, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
Brian Cage, 5th BOLA (prior appearances in '10, '12, '13, and '15)
Rey Horus, 1st BOLA
Marty Scurll, 3rd BOLA (3rd consecutive, '16 winner)
Michael Elgin, 4th BOLA (prior appearances in '12, '13, and '14)
TK Cooper, 1st BOLA and PWG debut
Matt Sydal, 6th BOLA (prior appearances in '06, '07, '14, '15, and '16; tied for the most appearances of anyone in the tournament this year)
Sami Callihan, 3rd BOLA (prior appearances in '12 and '16)
Matthew Riddle, 2nd BOLA (2nd consecutive)
Ricochet, 6th BOLA (prior appearances in '10, '12, '14, '15, and '16, '14 winner; tied for the most appearances of anyone in the tournament this year)
PENTA EL ZERO M, 3rd BOLA (3rd consecutive)
The three most recent winners are all present. 13 of the 24 have prior appearances, and of the 11 new competitors, 7 are PWG debuts. The other 4 new competitors all debuted in 2017. Tough to call a winner this year-I feel like both Lees, Callihan, and Cobb are the likeliest. Elgin's a potential dark horse, and Ricochet could become the first 2 time winner, as he and Chuck Taylor have a long history, but haven't wrestled each other in several years now. Any other guesses?
