Past BOLA winners include the likes of Adam Cole El Generico, Davey Richards, Low Ki, Ricochet, Zack Sabre, Jr and Kenny Omega.

At the 13th annual PWG BOLA 24 man two-night tournament, Riddle made it all the way to the semifinals over the weekend. In his quarterfinal tilt with Penta el Zero M AKA Pentagon Jr. AKA Pentagon Dark, Riddle hit some insane spots.

Harkening back to his MMA days, watch Matt Riddle plant Pentagon Jr. with just a plain nasty brainbuster suplex on the apron. Bro? You okay?
