2020 PBA Hall of Fame Classic Wes Malott.jpg

The king is back.

Wes Malott, the undisputed king of bowling, will return to the lanes tonight to take on new challengers as the PBA King of the Lanes gets underway.

Standing in his way of keeping the crown is a long list of PBA and PWBA stars who will try to take it from him over the next three nights.

The King of the Lanes begins tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern live from Jupiter, Florida, on FS1 (United States) and FloBowling (international).

In the first contenders match, bowling legends Walter Ray Williams Jr. and Norm Duke will battle for the right to dethrone Malott.

The action continues tonight as Anthony Simonsen and EJ Tackett will face off to take on whomever survived the earlier matches.

Over the next three nights a variety of players will have a chance to become the king (or queen) with Bill O’Neill, Sean Rash, Jakob Butturff, Clara Guerrero, Kris Prather, Gazmine Mason, Kyle Troup and Pete Weber waiting for their chance.

The PBA King of the Lanes will air tonight from 8-10 p.m. Eastern, Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. Eastern and Wednesday from 8-10 p.m. Eastern.
