Jonathan Gresham And Davey Richards' Replacements Announced For PWG Battle Of Los Angeles 2022

Two new names have been added to PWG's Battle of Los Angeles.

On January 28, Jonathan Gresham hopped on Twitter and revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, he will be unable to compete at this weekend's BOLA tournament. The ROH Champion also missed last weekend's The WRLD On GCW show for what we now know to be the same reason.
