(9) Joey Ryan beat Chris Hero in the finals of the Battle of Los Angeles tournament to win BOLA 2010. The finish saw Hero go for a roaring elbow, but Joey rolled him up with a small package. There was strong heel heat on Joey after he won the tournament when the audience was going for Hero after anticipating a potential Hero vs. Claudio finals.

PWG's next show is Friday, October 8 up against a WWE Raw house show in Anaheim. L.A. fans will have PWG and Orange County fans will have Raw.
