Battle Of Los Angeles 2006…


Two weeks ago, The LA Times ran an article on the locally-based Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, which just celebrated its third anniversary with “Threemendous,” at the Los Feliz Jewish Community Center last weekend (results here).

PWG’s next event is its annual tournament, “Battle of Los Angeles,” which will be held over three consecutive nights on September 1st-3rd at its new home, the American Legion Post #308 in Reseda.

As of this writing, the tournament participants include Austin Aries, Colt Cabana, Claudio Castagnoli, CIMA, Bryan Danielson, Delirious, Disco Machine, Dragon Kid, El Generico, Jack Evans, Chris Hero, Genki Horiguchi, Frankie Kazarian, MDogg20, Necro Butcher, T.J. Perkins, Quicksilver, Davey Richards, Chris Sabin, Scorpio Sky, Kevin Steen, Roderick Strong, Super Dragon, and Matt Sydal.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, “This looks to have maybe the deepest line-up of any U.S. tournament this year.”
