I went to the first night of BOLA tonight. My favorite matches were Ringkampf vs Ilja Dragunov and Shingo Takagi and Flamita vs Puma King. I got a BOLA 2018 shirt and was able to make a great signing for the game after the show.
Marko has really taken off in the last month or so. I saw him at a Zero-One USA show in May and thought an eighth grader was sneaking into the ring. He won me over by the end of the night.
Lol! Tonight, Night 2 of BOLA, the first match was Marko Stunt vs Trevor Lee. Before the match started, Trevor Lee got on the microphone and said he thought PWG had an age limit and asked why a 7 year old is in the ring. Trevor Lee then asked if Marko Stunt was Super Dragon's kid.
But like you said Gunslinger, Marko Stunt is an impressive wrestler. This was my first time seeing him live and, although I was sorry Chris Brookes was not able to make it, I am glad he was added to the tournament.
On a side note, when Marko Stunt got announced tonight, the fans threw fun size candy (Snickers, M&Ms, etc) for him into the ring. I did not know they did that before his matches.
I just got back to my hotel after attending BOLA 2018 Night 2.
The show was awesome. My friend who works at PWG saved me a balcony seat which was great and even better than sitting front row IMO as I could look down directly on all the action without having to jump out of the way for suicide dives and other out of the ring moves and I could also see everything at all times including when the action spills out of the ring on the other side from me.
Tonight I got my Zachary Wentz and my Darby Allin cards autographed, I am glad I finally got to meet both of them.
Tonight I was able to make 3 more signings to the game (a total of 4 so far for the weekend.) All of them are great names but there is one name in particular who I think some promoters here are going to get really excited about once his eventual card gets announced. Another one of those 4 signings turned out to be an easy one to get because Werner does the design for some of his merch, I did not know that but the wrestler already was familiar with the game and Werner and he was glad to sign the official release form and have Werner do the art for his upcoming card.
My favorite matches tonight were Ilja Dragunov vs Shingo Takagi, Timothy Thatcher vs WALTER, and definitely the 6 man tag main event of CIMA and The Rascalz vs Bandido, Flamita, and Rey Horus (afterward the Globe Theater was filled with loud "Bandido!" chants)- an absolutely amazing must see match.
Looking forward to tomorrow. I am meeting Toasterboy for an early lunch and then going to Night 3 of BOLA!
