Southern California-based Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) announced on Monday night that Davey Richards is no longer the promotion's World champion. PWG said Richards has other booking commitments that will prevent him from appearing on PWG's remaining slate of shows in 2010.

-- As a result of Richards relinquishing the PWG World Title, the promotion is setting up a four-way match between the Battle of Los Angeles semi-finalists for the vacant title on their next show.

The title match will be BOLA 2010 winner Joey Ryan vs. ROH tag champion Chris Hero vs. ROH tag champion Claudio Castagnoli vs. SoCal stand-out Brandon Gatson in the main event of the promotion's October 9 show in Reseda, Calif.

In the final two rounds of the BOLA tournament held over Labor Day weekend, Hero defeated Gatson and Ryan defeated Claudio in the semi-finals. That set up Ryan going over Hero to win the two-day, four-round tournament.

-- Also announced for the Oct. 9 show is the return of the Briscoe Brothers. ROH's newly-signed tag team is scheduled to face SoCal standouts the Cutler Brothers (Brandon & Dustin Cutler) in a match with PWG Tag Title implications.

Other matches announced include PWG tag champion El Generico vs. Ricochet, Rocky Romero vs. Ryan Taylor, Chuck Taylor vs. Johnny Goodtime, and "Pretty" Peter Avalon vs. Candice LeRae in a mixed gender match.

FYI: More info on PWG's Oct. 9 show and upcoming DVD releases from past shows can be found on prowrestlingguerrilla.com.
