"Phillip Five Skulls" and Buddy Matthews are coming to BOLA.
Pro Wrestling Guerrilla announced that Phillip Five Skulls and Buddy Matthews will be part of Battle of Los Angeles. Phillip Five Skulls is the fifteenth entrant while Buddy Matthews is the sixteenth and final entrant in the tournament which takes place on January 29 and 30.
There are no active wrestlers actually named Phillip Five Skulls, as it is a reference to a tweet from a fan back in August.
Literally everytime PWG has a show someone is like "Phillip Five Skulls from Dayton is really making a name and PWG should book him." "why no women at PWG?" "How do I download the show that happened 12 hours ago"— VM (@ViolentMiracle) August 3, 2021
Fucking promotions needs a user's manual.
Matthews was released by WWE in June of 2021 after eight years with the company. He has since wrestled a handful of matches, including one against Kazuchika Okada at NJPW Battle in the Valley.
