Just two months after hosting an incredible Threemendous VI, this past September, Pro Wrestling Guerilla (PWG) is proud to present: It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll), Sunday, November 21, at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles, California. This will be a fantastic show that will feature two debuts (Daniel Garcia and Anthony Henry) and a return (Lio Rush) to Pro Wrestling Guerilla. After the initial announcement was made on Twitter, October 20, the entire card was announced just a mere twenty-four hours later. Here’s a look at the card.

PWG It’s a Long Way to the Top – Full Card

  • Tony Deppen vs. Lee Moriarty.
  • Demonic Flamita vs. Dragon Lee
  • Daniel Garcia vs. Jonathan Gresham
  • Aramis & Rey Horus vs. Jack Cartwheel & Alex Zayne
  • Lio Rush vs. Davey Richards
  • PWG World Tag Team Championship: Kings of the Black Throne (Malakai Black & Brody King) (c) vs. Anthony Henry & JD Drake
  • PWG World Championship: Bandido (c) vs. Alex Shelley

Daniel Garcia vs. Jonathan Gresham

Set to make his PWG debut is none other than ‘Red Death’ himself, Daniel Garcia. Garcia had one of the biggest matches of his career, going up against CM Punk on AEW Rampage. Despite being on the losing end of the match, Garcia opened a lot of eyes. I expect him to do the same in Los Angeles as he faces Jonathan Gresham. After losing to Alex Shelley at Threemendous VI, Gresham is looking for a bounce-back win here. It is not too often that newcomers pick up the win in PWG debuts. Can Garcia be different?

Lio Rush vs. Davey Richards

It has been quite some time since Lio Rush graced a PWG ring; the same can be said about his opponent, Davey Richards, who made his return at Threemendous VI against Bandido for the PWG World Championship. Rush will be looking to make a statement here, even more so since making Los Angeles his new place of residence. During his brief stint in the company, Rush had made the best of his opportunity and is now looking to knock off a former PWG World Champion in Davey Richards. Although Richards came up short in his championship match against Bandido, I have to admit, “The American Wolf” did not miss a beat in his return to PWG. His kicks were just as hard as he was known for, and he is still very much a damn good technical wrestler.

This will make for an exciting bout, as Rush is looking to dazzle in his return whereas, Richards is seeking a bounce-back win.

Alex Shelley vs. Bandido

I think it is safe to say that Alex Shelley has been on quite the tear lately. Everywhere we look, the nineteen-year veteran has been booked all over the place, and you will get no complaints from me. Shelley has revitalized his career and is putting on some of the best matches on the independent circuit. Upon defeating Jonathan Gresham at Threemendous VI, Shelley earned himself a title match against Bandido, who has held the PWG World Championship since December 20 of last year, after dethroning Jeff Cobb. Bandido quickly earned the admiration of the PWG faithful, and I expect the crowd to favor him quite heavily. I anticipate this to be a hard-hitting bout and quite easily be the match of the night. The only question is, will Alex Shelley finally get his flowers and become PWG World Champion, or will Bandido retain?
