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.


I definitely didn't see Cole's win coming last year. PWG's unpredictability is part of its appeal... can't wait!

I wrote on one of the threads about matches I want in 2013 and one of the ones I wanted was Chuck Taylor vs Kevin Steen also some dude on the forums said it would be an awesome BOLA first round match. Thanks PWG for listening to the fans or maybe this was a complete coincidence.

I was just wondering, anyone her ever stay at the Howard Johnson right near the American Legion Post? Staying there for BOLA, and just wanted to hear some thoughts/opinions on it

Rumors going around that Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards are having WWE tryouts at the end of the month . I guess that might explain why Davey had to pull out of BOLA and Eddie not getting booked for it .

If I had to absolutely pick I'd go with Younger, but hopefully it's none of the three.

Cage or Willie, though...

Willie winning would be a real shocker. I can't see it, but if the crowd took to it, it would be an awesome moment.

I can see the case for Kyle winning, with the hot streak he's on. Elgin winning would help to re-establish him as a singles threat after spending the year in tags. I still feel like Drake needs to win BOLA, then beat Cole in December to end his year-long reign of terror. He just has too much fan love behind him not to. Besides, I'm hoping for BOLA '13 to be like BOLA last year, in giving the newer guys the spotlight.

I definitely agree about the newer guys getting the spotlight. BoLA is such a big deal now, it can do wonders for a guy's career. Though he's more established that a lot of the guys, I think Elgin winning would be awesome, as he's yet to have that truly crowning moment. You can make a case for a few of them though, which is great.

BOLA can do so much for a guys career, look at all 4 guys in the semi-finals last year; Cole went from a tag team guy who had never had a singles match to the next star, Ricochet became a guy who we can see as the PWG Champion someday, and Elgin and Sami went from relative new comers to staples in the main event scene. That's why I want promos so bad, a good promo and a strong performance at BOLA can really elevate a wrestlers status in PWG, just look at Cole. And I wouldn't be surprised if Gargano or ACH makes it far in this tournament.

I'd put the BoLA contestants into four categories...

Favourites: Michael Elgin, Kyle O'Reilly and Drake Younger

In with a chance: Kevin Steen, Roderick Strong and Brian Cage

Outsiders: Johnny Gargano, AR Fox, Rich Swann and Tomasso Ciampa

No chance: Trent?, Anthony Nese, Willie Mack, Chuck Taylor, Joey Ryan and ACH (though I'm sure he'll put on a great show)

How is Swann an outsider? And by the way I think Ciampa is going over Cage.

I was just going by who I think has the potential to win the tournament (as in an outside bet). I like Swann (he's improving with every show) but I can't see him winning BoLA.

I also think Ciampa has a chance against Cage. He's really impressed since returning from injury.

I think Drake will win. O'Reilly is strong dark house contender though. Image

Did you make that logo or is that the official? Either way that's sick, I hope they use it for the DVD's

Just throwing it out there for anyone going to BOLA, I do have one extra front row for each night. Bought them and a friend of mine can't make it so if you want one for each night, just direct message me.

What with them teaming up at BoLA, I like the idea of Adam Cole and The Young Bucks forming a bit of a stable in PWG.

They're made for each other... cocksure heels who you wouldn't mind giving a good slap!
