If you don't know what BOLA is, it's like a real-life Kumite from Bloodsport at an American Legion Hall in front of a few hundred rabid, drunken fans, bringing together some of the best independent wrestlers in the world.
Highlights from 2015 are above.
So without further ado, we present:
2016 PWG Battle of Los Angeles
