How does Bola 2009 stack up to previous year's?

Postby Fawrules » Sat Apr 24, 2010 2:27 pm

Just wondering because I bought it last night and was wondering how it compared to the past tournaments.
Pretty much a rank the BOLA's topic. Probably been done before.

BOLA 2008 is real good, but I'd say 2009 is better. Although don't sleep on '08, some really fun matches on those:

Night 1 had Low-Ki/Strong, Aries/Nigel, Davey/Danielson and the 3-way sprint. All real good but not must-see.

Night 2's got Low-Ki/Yoshino (short albeit great sprint), Danielson/TJ Perkins (probably Perkins's breakout match that got him noticed and where he is now), Hero/Lost (really good), Hero/Danielson (again, real good) and the excellent Hero/Low-Ki (you can see this on PWG Sells Out II).

Now comparing that to BOLA 2009, it just seemed like 2009 BOLA had a better flow and overall match quality. Literally every single match on Night 1 is enjoyable and all deserve replays (except maybe the first 2). Omega/Steen is excellent, and Generico/Shelley is must-see for technical fans. Also Cabana's best match I've seen him in since WWE is on here (vs. Joey).

Night 2 is amazing, must-see, one of the best PWG shows ever. Omega/Lost KILLS, Gatson/Shelley is awesome with a superb upset, and the last 2 matches are 2 of the best PWG matches of all time, bar none (especially the Bucks tag).

If you're iffy on getting BOLA 2008, I'd buy night 2 at least.

Planning on getting all the Bola's eventually this is the first one I actually bought, watched a friends copy of 2006.
Have heard from some that 2005's edition sucked though.

I hear really good things about 2007.

2007 is amazing. Night 3 is considered one of the best indy shows ever. Every match on that show is great-to-amazing.

2005 didn't suck, but I can see why some people may not like it as much.

Still worth getting IMO

If I had to rank them, best to worst: 2007, 2009, 2006, 2008, 2005.

I thought 2009's BOLA was one of the better ones. I'd rank them: 2007, 2009, 2008, 2006, 2005. That is not to say that 2006 or 2005 are bad though. Just more flawed than the others IMO.

Just got done watching Night One good show but can't really judge it until I see Night Two.

Also loved Kevin Steen and Omega's pre match mic work. lol

Night 2 is on a whole other level than Night 1.
