"THE LOST" PRIME TV #191: TEN MAN TAG!
PRIME TV News | Sep 26 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

The final episode of PRIME TV before Wrestlelution 6 kicked off with one-on-one competition, as "True Talent" Bobby Shields scheduled to meet "The World's Most Huggable Wrestler" Bryan Castle. However, the major story seemed to be unfolding outside the ring... namely who was backing Shields' in his corner - Benjamin Boone & N8 Mattson, The Sons of Michigan. Three veterans who feel wronged and overlooked in recent months have seemingly banded together in order to make their presence felt. On this night, it worked as the Sons were instrumental in helping Shields defeat Castle, the same man who has scored many upset wins himself over The Sons. However, what will happen when Castle joins forces with two other men who can lay claim to big upsets, Jay Flash & Aiden Veil, when they collide with the three men they upset, Shields & The Sons. It goes down as part of Wrestlelution 6 live on iPPV here at PRIMEwrestling.com on October 20!

The main event was a fitting collision of nearly every top Wrestlelution grudge as the PRIME Foundation squared off with the Megalomaniacs in a special ten-man elimination tag war orchestrated by dueling would-be authoritarians Commissioner Vic Travagliante & his would-be assistant and former Commish Justin LaBar.

Representing the Megalomaniacs were the reigning PRIME Tag Team Champions Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox, PRIME TV Champion Matthew Justice (w/Marti Belle), Rickey Shane Page, and would-be member Nicki Valentino.

Representing the PRIME Foundation were "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross, The Handicapped Heroes of Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen, "The Bev" Bobby Beverly, and "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano.

Action started quickly in the favor of the Megalomaniacs as, spearheaded by the likes of Fontaine & Madrox, the Handicapped Heroes were eliminated first and early, with Zach falling first, while partner Iron was not far behind. Matt Cross attempted to pick up the slack, and was seemingly on his way to eliminating the most dangerous Megalomaniac, Rickey Shane Page, until a shaking of the ropes by the illegal Matthew Justice sent Cross spiraling off the top rope and into the waiting grasp of Page, who eliminated the two-time PRIME Champion.

With the odds now 5-on-2 in favor of The Megalomaniacs, "The Bev" charged into action, unloading on Rickey Shane Page in a preview of their own Wrestlelution singles battle. Unsurprisingly, things quickly spiraled out of control between the two, with both brawling throughout the building until each were counted out. Unfortunately, this now left Johnny Gargano at a 4-on-1 deficit.

Gargano, despite the odds, showed no hesitation jumping into battle, first eliminating Jeremy Madrox to slightly up his odds. Luckily, a mishap by the hapless Nicki Valentino led to a big opportunity for Gargano, as Valentino's erroneous attempt at interference not only led to his own elimination, but the elimination of Marion Fontaine as well. With Gargano living up to his promise of working his way through every Megalomaniac, he had one adversary left in Matthew Justice.

Action between the two continued for several minutes, with several breathtaking near-falls, as both rose to the occasion as arguably the strongest representatives of their respective groups. However, the continued plots of the Megalomaniacs combined with the involvement of Marti Belle led to a victory for Megalomania, and some major momentum headed into Wrestlelution! Will the result be the same when Matt Cross challenges Matthew Justice for the TV Title, when Iron & Gowen challenge Fontaine & Madrox for the Tag Titles or when The Bev locks horns with RSP? Whichever faction wins the most of those three matches will get to pick the Commissioner - will Justin LaBar or Vic Travagliante reign in power moving forward?

And how will Nicki Valentino's night go on October 20 when he faces a mystery opponent chosen by Chris Van Vliet?? And can Johnny Gargano survive the challenge of the year when he meets Paul London in a match he HAS to win to ever challenge for the PRIME Title again?

Tickets are on sale NOW in our "Store" and also in our Wrestlelution 6 Mini-Site (click the Wrestlelution 6 banner in the top right of the screen to access it) and can be reserved NOW for as little as $15.

But if you can't be there live, click on iPPV, follow the instructions and watch from home for only $14.99!

This week, we round out the card with three huge match announcements!

JOHNNY GARGANO vs. PAUL LONDON

Several weeks ago, "The Whole Shebang" was handed a mysterious note after a match. Later, we found out the contents - Commissioner Vic Travagliante, in an effort to rid Gargano from the PRIME Championship scene once and for all had signed a match for Wrestlelution 6 with the stipulation that if Gargano lost, he could NEVER again challenge for the title he is so synonymous with. Furthermore, his opponent... former World Tag Team Champion Paul London! London has appeared in virtually every wrestling organization and has dazzled fans across the world with his breathtaking athleticism, and propensity to take any risk necessary to win. Few men can match either Johnny Gargano or Paul London in-ring... but without question, they are both a formidable match for one another. Some may call it a dream match, but Gargano must win to keep his dream alive. Paul London, however, no doubt wants to make an impact by defeating arguably the greatest PRIME Champion ever. Who will survive what is sure to be among the most unforgettable battles in the storied history of Wrestlelution?


FOUR-WAY ELIMINATION: "Zombie Princess" JIMMY JACOBS vs. GORY vs. "Neon Ninja" FACADE vs. LOUIS LYNDON
How to sum up the turmoil that has engulfed these four athletes? Facade & Lyndon helped dominate tag team wrestling in PRIME as part of the Ninja Elite Squad, staying solidified for three years, until the lure of singles gold created a rift between them that has yet to be repaired. Facade took great pride in defending the PRIME TV Title, however Louis Lyndon took it as a personal slight that Facade gave Louis no chance in defeating him for the prize. This relationship has only become more strained under the watchful eye of the manipulative Jimmy Jacobs, who has targeted both in his latest web of mind games. However, when Jacobs crossed paths with Dead Wrestling Society member Gory along the way, these two macabre creatures did not see eye-to-eye. All four of these athletes have something to prove, and only one will be left standing under this elimination rules format that is a strong candidate to steal the show!

SIX-MAN TAG: Sons of Michigan & Bobby Shields vs. Bryan Castle, Jay Flash & Aiden Veil
Three veterans who have experienced embarrassing career lows are out for revenge against the three men responsible for humiliating them. Bryan Castle has seemed to have the number of the angry veteran Mattson in recent months. Veil, the young 21-year-old rock band drummer, scored an impressive upset over Bobby Shields this past spring. Meanwhile, who could forget young Jay Flash, who was repeatedly annihilated by Benjamin Boone before coming back a third time and scoring a shocking upset pin over "The Big Bear"... twice! Can these three success stories make magic happen again with The Sons & Shields all out to prove they should never have been left out of the continuing faction warfare atop the PRIME Wrestling cards? Will these grizzled veterans showcase what they're truly capable of?

All this in addition to what we announced last week...

PRIME CHAMPIONSHIP: NO DQ: KRIMSON vs. "The Man Beast" RHINO

Last year at Wrestlelution 5, Rhino destroyed our wrestling ring and shattered Jason Bane's Wrestlelution win streak, instantly making headlines and putting himself in line for a shot at the PRIME Championship, then held by Johnny Gargano. However, Krimson & his Dead Wrestling Society took none too kindly to the Extreme Legend yet PRIME newcomer's title aspirations, so both Gargano & Rhino became targets. Once Krimson conquered Gargano under controversial means, Rhino was ready to extract revenge, but Commissioner Vic T had kept Rhino from returning in the hopes of having the PRIME Title to control himself. However, with the balance of power now more level, the door was open for Rhino to return and claim what was his... a rightful opportunity to get revenge on Krimson and become PRIME Champion... and it will be both men's specialty... No Disqualification. Both Krimson and Rhino are infamous for a career filled with broken tables, violence and brutality. What will they do to one another with no rules and the title at stake October 20?

PRIME TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox vs. Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen

When The Megalomaniacs took power, the PRIME Tag Titles were among their first goals, and they had a foolproof plan in place - divide and conquer. After accusing Zach of "excessive brutality" in a match with Fontaine, Commissioner Vic ejected the "One Legged Wonder" from the building, leaving his "Handicapped Hero" partner Iron all alone to fend off both Fontaine & Madrox in a tag team title defense. While Iron demonstrated the heart and courage to persevere, the numbers were insurmountable and we had new tag team champions - without the prior tag team champions having ever being defeated together. Iron & Gowen spent weeks just trying to earn permission back into PRIME buildings, let alone receiving a title shot. The deck was always stacked - Vic was always on the take, and The Handicapped Heroes forced to conform to impossible rules, such as Greg wrestling with one arm tied behind his back. The Heroes have stated all they want is a fair opportunity to show they have what it takes to overcome. Their day has arrived on October 20, can Wrestlelution 6 be the site of their moment of reclamation or will Fontaine & Madrox stay a step ahead?

PRIME TV TITLE MATCH: Matthew Justice w/Marti Belle vs. "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross

Last February at our "Pressure Rising" iPPV, it appeared "One Man Militia" Matthew Justice's return was exactly what the PRIME Foundation needed to fend off the growing Megalomaniacs. That is, until, Justice swerved us all, revealing his true allegiance by breaking a laptop computer over the back of Matt Cross and giving full control of PRIME to the enemy. Justice followed that up by capturing the PRIME Television Title & receiving a special "signing bonus" in the form of Marti Belle. Meanwhile, Matt Cross disappeared from the PRIME landscape for several weeks. Cross couldn't bear to watch something he had such a major hand in creating - as the company's first ever champion AND first-ever two-time champion, be destroyed by ego, politics, and corporate greed. Cross returned with a vengeance early this summer, and immediately targeted Justice, only to be stonewalled by Justice & Vic, who denied every one of M-Dogg's requests. With the balance of power in limbo, Cross gets what could be his only shot to redeem the incident that led to PRIME Wrestling spiraling out of control this past February. Where does the fate of the TV Title lie and can Matthew Justice remain the trump card in the Megalomaniacs' plot for undying power?

RICKEY SHANE PAGE vs. "The Bev" BOBBY BEVERLY

"The Bev" has become arguably the most improved member of the PRIME roster in recent months, however it's easy to overlook this fact based on the chaos and turmoil that has surrounded the organization all year. As a result, Beverly has made it a point to "step up" and challenge the best - teaming with Johnny Gargano to defeat the Dead Wrestling Society and pursuing TV Champion Matthew Justice being just two of "The Bev's" recent goals. However, after a cheap shot by the most intimidating Megalomaniac - the near 300-lb unstable Rickey Shane Page, Beverly found his next target. These two physical competitors will battle one-on-one for the very first time in PRIME as part of major stakes on the line. Who can set the tone for their team and help their side attain the ultimate possession... control over the entire company.

Best of Three Series: Justin LaBar vs. Vic Travagliante

As if the previous three Megalomaniac vs. PRIME Foundation matches aren't prestigious enough by themselves, they will also be part of a much larger picture. Each of those bouts are part of the "Best of Three" series between the dueling factions on the night, with whichever side who captures the most wins getting to choose the PRIME Commissioner going forward. Vic Travagliante replaced LaBar as Commissioner this past February after an elaborate months-long plot put he and Aaron Maguire in positions of power, manipulating the rest of management, and carrying out their selfish agenda at the expense of everyone. Justin LaBar carried out some revenge when he, much like Vic had done to him months earlier, found Vic's laptop and used its contents to get some of his demands met. Either LaBar exposes Vic's selfish plot to the rest of upper management, or LaBar's "suggestions" for Wrestlelution 6 matches become approved. As a result, ALL of the power is at stake in this Best of Three series. Will PRIME remain in Megalomaniac hands? If so, what is its future? Can the fate of the company be restored to those who truly helped build it?

"Old School Muscle" Nicki Valentino vs. ???? w/Chris Van Vliet

Chris Van Vliet is a well-known area television & radio personality best known from the WOIO news team. Chris served as special guest ring announcer last year at Wrestlelution 5 and, when Valentino attempted to steal Van Vliet's chair to use as a weapon during the show's main event, a scuffle between the two ensued, ending when Valentino sent Van Vliet spilling over top of a ringside table (you can see the footage here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0TPl3JuHew). Valentino blamed that moment, and the lasting mental effect it has had, as to why he has been unable to carry out his assigned Megalomaniac missions. Van Vliet, who was recently backstage visiting as he frequently is during many of our PRIME live events, came out to the ring area to address these accusations. Van Vliet adamantly stated he's here to have a good time, not fight, but if it's a fight Valentino wants, Van Vliet would be more than happy to find a suitable opponent to represent him at Wrestlelution 6 on October 20. So Nicki Valentino will battle a mystery opponent hand-chosen by Chris Van Vliet. But whom will Van Vliet select for the job?


All of this and we STILL aren't done telling you about this event! We'll have more news and rumors on who may be popping up at the biggest event of the year! Remember, it all goes down at the Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma, OH on Sunday, October 20 at 3pm EST. Be there live by reserving your tickets now or watch from home on iPPV!

"THE LOST" PRIME TV #190: GARGANO vs. JACOBS PLUS BIG NEWS
PRIME TV News | Sep 18 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

PRIME TV #190 from the Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma began with "One Man Militia" Matthew Justice (w/Marti Belle) successfully defending his Television Title against young 21-year-old upstart Aiden Veil, snapping a recent win streak for the rock star drummer. Justice is focused on the confrontation he has been avoiding for months... his one-on-one meeting with "M-Dogg" Matt Cross for the title on October 20 at Wrestlelution 6!

The Handicapped Heroes, Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen, were in great spirits a week removed from learning of THEIR Wrestlelution 6 match, where they finally get a fair opportunity at the PRIME Tag Team Titles they never should have lost, when they meet Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox. On this night, it was old foes in their way in the form of The Sons of Michigan, N8 Mattson & Benjamin Boone, who were vanquished when Gowen pinned Mattson after his famed one-legged moonsault. It's clear The Sons are in need of serious re-grouping, while Iron & Gowen are as polished a team as they've ever been, and are coming back to Parma on October 20 with a point to prove!

In a battle of two of the most unstable and dangerous athletes on the PRIME roster, Megalomaniac Rickey Shane Page defeated Dead Wrestling Society member Gory. Gory, who fought valiantly despite being significantly outsized, may have also been preoccupied by "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs, who joined Joe Dombrowski ringside on commentary. Jacobs, while on headset, issued challenges to all athletes who have recently stepped in his way... Gory, Louis Lyndon, and Facade! Word has it, PRIME management were quick to act upon this challenge, signing a special four-way elimination bout between the men for Wrestlelution 6!

With Gory knocked out center-ring from Rickey Shane Page's devastating elbow strike, Jacobs opportunistically entered the ring, and simply kissed Gory on the forehead before depositing the DWS member outside the ring. Was it a mind game? Perhaps symbolic for the "kiss of death"? Regardless, these two unsettling souls meet in-ring for the first time, along with long-time friends recently encountering rocky times in Facade and Louis Lyndon in a four-way battle that could steal the show.

Jacobs did not leave the ring, however, as he was part of this week's feature... a Wrestlelution 5 rematch with "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano. In a war that some say may have even eclipsed their clash of a year prior, it was Gargano once again emerging triumphant, but afterwards some previously private information was revealed to the masses.

Joe Dombrowski entered the ring to reveal the news Gargano had had upon his mind for weeks... the contents of the mysterious note delivered to him a month prior. The note's contents were, quite simply, Johnny Gargano's Wrestlelution 6 match. The stipulation? If Gargano loses this match, he can NEVER again challenge for the title he is synonymous with... the PRIME Championship. The opponent? Arguably someone who can match Johnny Gargano's skill level in every conceivable way... former WWE Tag Team Champion and current Ring of Honor star PAUL LONDON!

Gargano ended the broadcast stating his respect for Paul London and all he has done, but ensuring victory when the "Intrepid Traveler" London enters Gargano's event... Wrestlelution.

Next week: With Wrestlelution 6 looming, The Megalomaniacs and PRIME Foundation wage war in a massive Ten Man Elimination Tag Team Match!

"THE LOST" PRIME TV #189: LaBar Turns The Tables
PRIME TV News | Sep 12 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

PRIME TV #189 emanated from the site of Wrestlelution 6 - The Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma, OH, with a lively crowd amped up to count down the final few weeks until our biggest event of the year.

In-ring action kicked off with "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross scoring an emphatic win over "True Talent" Bobby Shields in one-on-one action. Cross was no doubt driven by The Megalomaniacs' recent refusal to grant Cross his chance at the man who started this takeover of power with the laptop he broke on Cross' neck, Matthew Justice. Matt Cross is back on his winning ways, much to the chagrin of people like Commissioner Vic T, while it appears Bobby Shields may be in need of a change.

Nicki Valentino scored a very quick victory over young Matt Taylor, after only about a minute of competition. Valentino had a grievance of his own to air, as he was quick to take to the microphone to discuss his comically failed plots to earn the respect and membership with The Megalomaniacs. Valentino pointed the blame on one man... Chris Van Vliet.

Chris Van Vliet is a well-known area television & radio personality best known from the WOIO news team. Chris served as special guest ring announcer last year at Wrestlelution 5 and, when Valentino attempted to steal Van Vliet's chair to use as a weapon during the show's main event, a scuffle between the two ensued, ending when Valentino sent Van Vliet spilling over top of a ringside table (you can see the footage here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0TPl3JuHew).

Valentino blamed that moment, and the lasting mental effect it has had, as to why he has been unable to carry out his assigned Megalomaniac missions. Van Vliet, who was backstage visiting as he frequently is during many of our PRIME live events, came out to the ring area to address these accusations. Van Vliet adamantly stated he's here to have a good time, not fight, but if it's a fight Valentino wants, Van Vliet would be more than happy to find a suitable opponent to represent him at Wrestlelution 6 on October 20. So Nicki Valentino will battle a mystery opponent hand-chosen by Chris Van Vliet. But whom will Van Vliet select for the job?

The Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers, and Megalomaniac representatives, Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox were successful in their latest PRIME Tag Team Title defense, defeating the Ninja Elite Squad of Facade & Louis Lyndon. Unfortunately, miscommunications reared their ugly heads again when it came to NES' tag team synergy. It seems Lyndon's ill feelings toward Facade continued, and when the two developed a timing miscue, their championship foes seized the opportunity, continuing their unstoppable reign. Lyndon aggressively pushed Facade aside after the match, perhaps feeling that Facade was once again attempting to (allegedly) over shadow his tag partner of over three years.

From there, a moment we had waited all day for, a HUGE announcement from former Commissioner Justin LaBar. If you recall, LaBar was in the office of Commissioner Vic Travagliante all by himself during a recent hostile takeover that saw The Megalomaniacs all over ringside before retreating to a private viewing room. Justin revealed that, much like when Vic had stolen LaBar's laptop and used it against him to plot his takeover of the company, LaBar too had unearthed some very critical material. Namely, private documents that spell out the true plans of Vic, Aaron Maguire, and the rest of the squad (plans many of us have long since detected, but had been hidden from most of Upper Management). LaBar threatened to expose Vic's true selfish intentions to HIS bosses unless Vic gave in to a few special stipulations. Vic was forced to agree. Those stipulations... Wrestlelution 6. Justin LaBar wanted the authority to make some matches, and it was time to finally give the fans what they had been waiting for. LaBar announced the following for October 20 in Parma, Ohio...

PRIME TV Title Match: Matthew Justice w/Marti Belle vs. "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross

Rickey Shane Page vs. "The Bev" Bobby Beverly

PRIME Tag Team Title Match: Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox vs. Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen

Furthermore, the above three matches will be a "Best of 3 Series" between The Megalomaniacs vs. PRIME Foundation, meaning whichever side wins the most of these three matches will get the select who will be PRIME Commissioner moving forward!

Not only that, LaBar also signed a huge main event, one we had wanted for months, but Vic had done everything in his power to prevent...

PRIME Championship Match: NO DQ! - Krimson vs. "The Man Beast" Rhino

What a huge announcement! As you can see, members of the PRIME Foundation finally get the fair opportunities they wanted, while Rhino finally gets back into PRIME to avenge the beating levied on him by the Dead Wrestling Society late last year!

One man who was NOT happy was "The Embodiment of Evil" and PRIME Champion himself, Krimson, who bee-lined to the ring, causing an intimidated LaBar to leave post haste before conflict. Krimson may have had the huge bombshell of Rhino dropped on him, but had another problem on this night - "The Bev" Bobby Beverly. While this match was no doubt signed by Vic as a continuing plan to eliminate his enemies, it turned into a plus for both sides. Beverly had a chance to try to adapt to the reckless and wild match-type that a Rickey Shane Page will no doubt attempt to bring to the table, while Krimson was able to take his frustrations toward Rhino out on a very tough, tenacious athlete who kept coming back for more. Krimson was victorious on this night, and he had to earn it, but both of these double-tough athletes are more prepared than before for their clashes on October 20 live on iPPV from Parma, OH - See the "Art of War" for yourself, see Wrestlelution 6!

Next week: Johnny Gargano vs. Jimmy Jacobs in a Wrestlelution 5 rematch plus we finally learn the contents of the mysterious letter Gargano received, which carries a foreboding stipulation and a surprising Wrestlelution 6 opponent!


"THE LOST" PRIME TV #188: TABLE MATCH & HOSTILE TAKEOVER
PRIME TV News | Sep 4 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

One of the most news-worthy episodes taped of PRIME TV kicked off with one-on-one action as "Handicapped Hero" Gregory Iron battled one-half of the twosome that dethroned him (and a banned-from-the-building Zach Gowen) of the PRIME Tag Titles, Jeremy Madrox, who of course partners with Marion Fontaine to form the Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers (B.O.M.B.) within The Megalomaniacs. Greg has spent weeks asking for nothing more than a fair shot to prove he & Zach are the better wrestlers & team, and just as it seemed Greg had a chance to do so here at least in singles action... The Megalomaniacs changed the rules again.

Madrox & Upper Management's Aaron Maguire made a call on-the-fly... or so we're led to believe. Maguire, who just happened to have a rope in his possession, changed the match stipulation to force Greg, already obviously afflicted with cerebral palsy, to wrestle with even more of a disadvantage, with one arm tied behind his back. This, obviously, shifted the momentum to the side of Madrox, as Greg did all he could just to attempt to survive. After several minutes of defenseless punishment, Greg had no choice but to kick Madrox below the belt to get himself intentionally disqualified to stop the madness. Justin LaBar, the forced servant to The Megalomaniacs who was spending his third week as guest ring announcer in place of the suspended Pedro DeLuca, helped free Iron from the ties that bind him, which led to "The Handicapped Hero" seeking physical revenge. Unfortunately, this brought out fellow Megalomaniacs Marion Fontaine, Rickey Shane Page, Matthew Justice & Marti Belle, who not only levied a painful and unfair assault onto Iron, but decided to choose now to flex their ultimate power, completely hijacking the entire show for their own personal glory.

As chaos reigned in-ring, we saw pre-recorded comments from "M-Dogg" Matt Cross, who made it clear Matthew Justice's recent attempts at avoiding him and a potential one-on-one meeting for the PRIME Television Title will not deter Cross in his quest for revenge, after Justice sold out to Megalomania at the expense of the entire company.

Our cameras bring you to the office of Commissioner Vic Travagliante as he works on his laptop to get his thoughts on various current events, but he's interrupted by a phone call. The voice on the other end is loud and deep enough to be very audible... it's "The Man Beast" Rhino. Vic, similarly to rumors we'd heard in recent weeks, made one last ditch effort to recruit the Extreme Original to the Megalomaniacs, intimating Rhino wouldn't be back in PRIME until he learned how to tow the company line. Rhino verbally lit into Vic with an angry barrage. Rhino has one goal... he wants a piece of Krimson following the attack by Krimson & the DWS that put Rhino out of PRIME following Rhino's match with Johnny Gargano last fall. Rhino promised he would find a way back into the company and make everyone pay.

Vic, ego bruised and feelings hurt, made a bee-line toward the ring intent on taking his anger toward Rhino out on everyone else.

Back in the ring, The Megalomaniacs continued to hold the ring and live crowd hostage, spending the past several minutes extolling their own virtues, and putting the spotlight all on them. As "Commissioner T" joined them, the mood became more serious. First, Vic relieved Justin LaBar of his ring announcer duties as punishment for LaBar helping Gregory Iron earlier. LaBar is ordered to head back to Vic's office and get back to his other job... cleaning. Vic opted to take over ring announcing duties in the hopes he could announce Rickey Shane Page as the NEW PRIME Champion at the end of the night.

Our next scheduled match involved the recently returning Mr. RBI Izeah Bonds, but the match-up didn't get anywhere close to starting, as RBI was mauled by every Megalomaniac at the request of Vic, because he was "bored" with what he was seeing. Another example of a blatant mis-use of power.

We then saw pre-recorded comments from Johnny Gargano, or at least or attempt to gain comments. A week ago following his win over Marion Fontaine, Gargano was handed a mysterious note by a stagehand. Rumors suggest it was a note handed down by the Commish himself, and may concern Gargano's future within the company. A subdued Gargano declined comment on the contents of the note.

Our cameras followed Justin LaBar back to Vic's offce to resume his janitorial duties, but before we could get much comment from Justin on the situation, LaBar made a curious discovery... Vic, in his haste and anger from the Rhino phone call, had left his laptop wide open and all alone. Keep in mind, six months ago, it was Vic stealing LaBar's laptop that helped greatly in The Megalomaniacs' takeover of PRIME to begin with. With every Megalomaniac otherwise distracted, LaBar sat down at the laptop and began to see if he could dig up some dirt of his own.

The oblivious Megalomaniacs continued to gloat and hot dog center-ring, as Vic invited them all back to a private viewing room where he has set up a big-screen television to watch Rickey Shane Page win the PRIME Championship.

As the mood grew festive amongst the group, things quickly turned violent once PRIME Champion Krimson and top challenger Rickey Shane Page were unleashed upon one another. Chairs, steel, guardrails, and pain were the order of the day and keep in mind it was a Table Match - you had to drive your opponent through a table to win. As Krimson, began to get the upper-hand, The Megalomaniacs emptied from their viewing room, beginning their THIRD assault of the hour. DWS member Gory emerged from the darkness to help his leader, and the chaos only continued from there. PRIME Foundation members Bobby Beverly, Matt Cross, then Johnny Gargano himself all emerged to enter the fight. As the warring factions brawled to the back, Gargano remained, furiously battling Page as Krimson laid prone on the table. Page shrugged off all of Gargano's hardest-hitting offense, to mount the turnbuckle to dive onto the injured champion. However, Gargano recovered and caught Page precariously perched, sending him crashing hard down below. While it was Johnny's goal to send Page into Krimson and eliminate two top rivals with one motion, Krimson had moved from the table just in time, meaning with Rickey going through the jagged wood and steel, Krimson had retained the PRIME Championship. While Gargano inadvertently assisted the "Embodiment of Evil", it was clear that night there was no respect, no admiration, for anyone especially surrounding the fate of the PRIME Championship.

NEXT WEEK: What happened with Justin LaBar and Vic's laptop? And how will this shape October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live iPPV supercard?

"THE LOST" PRIME TV #187 - GARGANO vs. FONTAINE
PRIME TV News | Aug 29 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

Episode 187 of PRIME TV, emanating from the Agora in Cleveland, OH kicks off with "Old School Muscle" Nicki Valentino headed to the ring. Last week, Valentino once again tried to gain a contract with The Megalomaniacs, but had been told in quite condescending terms by Commissioner Vic Travagliante that he had yet to accomplish ANY of his assignments handed to him, or done anything to impress or favor himself or The Megalomaniacs in any way.

Valentino is dead-set on making an impact, so he issues an open challenge to anyone to come out and face them in the ring one-on-one right now. Nicki soon learned the hard way what a bad idea it is to issue a challenge in a place as volatile as the PRIME locker room, as the challenge was accepted by the recently returning "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross, who made short work of the would-be Megalomaniac.

After the match, Cross grabbed the microphone to explain his recent silence and absence, how he needed to clear his head after watching everything he had worked hard to help build in PRIME fall into the wrong hands of The Megalomaniacs. Cross pin-pointed the blame on one man... Matthew Justice, who had broken a laptop over his supposed tag team partner Cross in the match that swayed the power from Justin LaBar to Vic in the first place. Cross demanded a match with Justice for the TV Title, but was instead met by Vic himself. The commish ran over Cross' recent win-loss record and absence from events as strikes against M-Dogg, and even dismissed his victory over Valentino as "insignificant". As a result, Vic answered Cross' demands with a simple and stern "No" and promptly walked off. But this story is not yet over.

In the back, we heard from the "Neon Ninja" Facade, discussing his desire to regain the TV Title and the sea of potential challengers he's found himself in the midst of. Facade had a warning for each PRIME wrestler he's crossed paths with of late - Gory, Jimmy Jacobs, and even long-time ally Louis Lyndon - that Facade will do anything to get back where he feels he deserves to be.

Back to ringside, in a rematch from a couple of weeks ago, Sassy Steph, the female representative of the PRIME Foundation who has been with us since the start, once again battled the woman who bested her last time, Megalomaniac Marti Belle. Marti was once again accompanied by PRIME TV Champion "One Man Militia" Matthew Justice, who was instrumental in Marti's victory beforehand. However, this time, Justice seemed to be more of a detriment than anything. As soon as Matt attempted to involve himself to help Marti, an irate M-Dogg Matt Cross ran from the back, bee-lining for Justice. As the hot pursuit distracted Marti, Steph was able to recover and make Marti "Kiss My Sass" for the victory.

Comments in the back from "THE BEV" Bobby Beverly showcased his frustration at his inability to defeat Justice for the TV Title a week ago, unsurprising due to the presence of not only Marti Belle, but Rickey Shane Page at ringside as well, who had knocked Beverly cold with one of his elbow strikes following the bout. "The Bev" was clear in that he had his sights set on the any of The Megalomaniacs, including and especially the most dangerous... Rickey Shane Page.

The Sons of Michigan, "Amazing" N8 Mattson & Benjamin Boone, were frustrated in their own right. The geographical elitists seemed puzzled and downright slighted that they don't have a horse in the race when it came to the huge territorial war overtaking PRIME's top ranks. The Megalomaniacs, PRIME Foundation, Dead Wrestling Society - none of them have been wise enough to recruit The Sons. N8 & Boone promised to make their presence known in another way in due time.

Your main event saw "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano go one-on-one with a familar rival, "Megastar" and perhaps the chief Megalomaniac, the one who started it all, Marion Fontaine. After a 15-plus minute hard fought war, Gargano was able to narrowly emerge victorious, finally granting a small glimmer of hope to The PRIME Foundation. Interference from Jeremy Madrox could not even thwart Gargano, especially when Gregory Iron intercepted Madrox's post-match getaway, throwing him back into the ring to meet a the same "Uniquely You" fate as Fontaine had. Gargano has found his way past two 'Maniacs, but can he possibly get back to the very top amidst this war?

Following the match, a stagehand delivered a letter to Gargano. We are unsure of the contents of the letter, but do know that whatever was written inside, left Gargano in stunned shock. Speculation has said it was a mandate from Commissioner Vic himself, but if so, what did it say? We'll attempt to investigate next week!

ALSO NEXT WEEK: PRIME Champion Krimson defends against Rickey Shane Page in a Table Match plus Jeremy Madrox vs. Gregory Iron and much more!


"THE LOST" PRIME TV #186 - JUSTICE vs. BEVERLY
PRIME TV News | Aug 20 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

PRIME TV #186 - JUSTICE vs. BEVERLY

This episode begins in the lavish Commissioner's office of Vic Travagliante. As his "assistant" Justin LaBar continues to be forced into menial labor, Vic scolds Matt Cross over choosing to return at the end of the six-man tag last week, claiming such actions have only pushed all of the PRIME Foundation - Cross, Gargano, Beverly, Iron & Gowen - FAR down the list of title contenders, due to repeated losses & unprofessional conduct.

Speaking of unprofessional conduct, Vic chose to punish another staff member he felt was not performing his duties properly... ring announcer Pedro DeLuca. Pedro was placed on a temporary suspension, leaving the ring announcer position wide open. Unsurprisingly, Vic cast LaBar for the role, complete in embarrassing T-shirt & necktie combo forced upon him by Vic.

Before we part the Commish's office, Nicki Valentino barges in once again looking to sign his contract to officially become a Megalomaniac. While Valentino feels he's a shoe-in, Vic is continually completely unimpressed. After reminding Valentino he finds him to be an embarrassment, he instructed Nicki to go out and accomplish something that can actually HELP The Megalomaniacs. Valentino's quest, perhaps in vein, continues.

In-ring action began with "Neon Ninja" Facade defeating Gory in a return bout from several weeks ago. In this encounter, frequent distractions both have recently sustained, namely Jimmy Jacobs and Louis Lyndon, were not in attendance, leading to the two continuing their fierce rivalry they re-kindled several weeks ago. Facade avenged his recent loss to Gory, but as has been a staple in their wars, it appeared this wasn't the last time we'd see them clash.

Our cameras caught up with Gregory Iron, still steamed over losing the PRIME Tag Titles 2-on-1 to Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox when partner Zach Gowen was banned from the building by the Megalomaniacs. Greg speaks of an upcoming bout scheduled one-on-one with Madrox, and says all he wants is one fair chance to prove which side truly is superior.

It was "upset city" once again as the PRIME rookie Jay Flash pulled off another shocking win, this time in tag competition! Weeks after pinning Ben Boone one-on-one (following two very failed attempts prior), Jay joined partner "World's Most Huggable Wrestler" Bryan Castle to defeat Boone & "Amazing" N8 Mattson, collectively known, of course, as The Sons of Michigan. Jay was able to catch Boone off his game again, connect with his top rope senton, and continue the feel-good story of the year, and drive The Sons into another uncontrollable rage. Will the villainous veterans have a response?

Meanwhile, our cameras caught up with "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs who has no positive words for Facade, Gory, or Louis Lyndon following recent confrontations with each. Jacobs promises to spread the same amount of chaos again as he did throughout PRIME in 2012.

Our cameras also captured words from both "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano and "Megastar" Marion Fontaine, scheduled to main event next week's episode against one another. Both men are no strangers to one another, but with the high stakes surrounding seemingly every match of late, certainly this meeting is their most important to date.

In our main event, "One Man Militia" Matthew Justice retained his Television Title over "The Bev" Bobby Beverly, though Mr. Justice's nickname proved once again to be quite ironic, as not only did Marti Belle make her presence known to lead to her man's victory, we also saw the unstable and dangerous Rickey Shane Page add an unprovoked exclamation point, knocking Beverly out with his vicious elbow strike.

NEXT WEEK: Johnny Gargano vs. Marion Fontaine; a return match with Marti Belle vs. Sassy Steph; plus Nicki Valentino's latest attempt to impress The Megalomaniacs!

"THE LOST" PRIME TV #185 - Six-Man Tag!
PRIME TV News | Aug 8 2013 by primewrestling   
During our hiatus from television, we'll be re-capping the episodes we've already taped that haven't yet made air, in order to best keep you fans up to speed with all the goings-on in PRIME, and so all of our fans can be fully prepared for the culmination - October 20's Wrestlelution 6 live event and iPPV!

PRIME TV #185: Six-Man Tag

Emanating from Lisbon, OH, this episode of PRIME TV kicks off with women's action as Marti Belle of The Megalomaniacs (and "signing" bonus of PRIME TV Champion Matthew Justice) entered battle against Sassy Steph. Marti claims to be the "First Lady of PRIME Wrestling" in spite of the fact that Steph, like her male counterparts in the PRIME Foundation, has been a part of the company since its inception in 2007. This bout ended shamefully, as Matthew Justice tripped up Steph, allowing Marti Belle to put her foe away and remain undefeated in PRIME.

We heard comments from Gory of The Dead Wrestling Society, unhappy over the fact his win over Facade a week prior was NOT done on his own, and it instead saw Jimmy Jacobs come out to upend Facade as revenge for Facade interrupting a Jimmy Jacobs attack on Louis Lyndon the week before. Gory assured the "Zombie Princess" that he does not need anyone's help and assured Jacobs that he is more than willing to stoop "lower than scum" to get the job done.

Meanwhile, our cameras caught up with Facade & Louis Lyndon as they continued to hash out their differences. While Facade seemed to have good intentions when he rescued Lyndon from the Jacobs attack, Lyndon still takes it as a personal snub. Lyndon accused Facade of not believing he could defeat Jimmy Jacobs. Facade attempted to plead his case, but Lyndon wanted nothing of it.

Back to ring action, Nicki Valentino's attempt to make a big impact, needless to say, failed miserably, as he and his hand-selected tag team partner - a masked zubaz-clad trailer park dweller named "The Boogie Woogie Booty Call Bandit" fell far short of success against "The World's Most Huggable Wrestler" Bryan Castle & local favorite Thomas Adams. Valentino has seemingly failed Commissioner Vic T once again. What's his next move to impress The Megalomaniacs?

As a result of the unclear conclusion to their previous meeting, it was announced PRIME Champion Krimson would defend the gold in a re-match against Megalomaniac Rickey Shane Page - only this time to ensure a decisive winner, it would be contested as a Tables Match - the only way to win is to drive your opponent through a table. Both athletes had very morbid yet determined thoughts in mind, as this faction warfare continued over PRIME's top prize.

We also heard from "The Bev" Bobby Beverly, a week prior to challenging Matthew Justice for the PRIME Television Title. Beverly has loudly stated his intentions to step up to a higher level of competition. Can he best Justice, who is undefeated since his PRIME return?

In the main event, it was six-man tag team action as Megalomaniacs Matthew Justice, Rickey Shane Page & Jeremy Madrox were sent into battle against three members of The PRIME Foundation - The Handicapped Heroes, Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen, as well as "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano. The match was a hard-fought 15 minute back-and-forth war in a desperate battle for much needed momentum. After some underhanded tactics, the battle saw all three Megalomaniacs alone in the ring with Zach Gowen. After a three-on-one assault, Gowen was unconscious center-ring, and easy prey for The Megalomaniacs to attempt to seriously injure another of their rivals. Just as Zach was being pinned, a familiar face bolted through the curtain... it was "M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross! Seen for the very first time since the power shift at "Pressure Rising", Cross cleaned house of The Megalomaniacs, leaving the PRIME Foundation standing tall. While The Megalomaniacs escaped the match with the victory, the momentum in this faction warfare may be about to shift with the return of the Innovator of Aerial Insanity!



Statement on Status of PRIME Wrestling TV
PRIME TV News | Aug 4 2013 by primewrestling   
Fans,

As some of you may have noticed, PRIME Wrestling TV is currently in the midst of a brief, temporary hiatus from SportsTime Ohio.

As STO continues to evolve in its transition from an independently-owned entity into a more corporate environment under the Fox Sports banner, there is certain protocol and requirements that must be met both from a Fox corporate level, as well as on a programming level.

PRIME Wrestling is currently in the midst of transitioning and evolving certain aspects of our business model & programming internally in order to better suit both our needs & the needs of the Fox network to ensure a long and prosperous business relationship moving forward.

This situation does NOT in any way affect our live events, which will proceed as planned, especially October 20's Wrestlelution 6 at the Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma. We will be providing more thorough recaps of our live events here in order to prepare our great fans for what will still be a breathtaking Wrestlelution spectacular.

Stay posted here to PRIME Online for further updates, and we thank all of you for your continued support and belief in our product, staff, and talent! We would not be here six years after our formation if not for the loyalty you show us!

Five Matches Added To "Wrestlelution Prelude" Aug 4 in Parma!
PRIME TV News | Jul 25 2013 by primewrestling   
FIVE MATCHES ADDED TO AUGUST 4 "WRESTLELUTION PRELUDE" IN PARMA!

We are under two weeks away from our next major Live TV Taping - "Wrestlelution Prelude" Sunday, August 4 at 3pm at the Ohio Nets Sports Complex on Corporate Drive in Parma, OH. Tickets are available now - $20 Preferred Seating; $15 GA and can be reserved now in our "Store" section!

This event will set the stage to this fall's huge Wrestlelution 6 supercard! Be the first to hear hot news & newly announced matches for what is always the biggest show of the year!

In addition to that, last week we told you about the special BONUS MAIN EVENT - a 10 MAN ELIMINATION TAG featuring The Megalomaniacs vs. The PRIME Foundation! Imagine Gargano, Cross, Fontaine, Justice, Rickey Shane Page, Zach Gowen, and many more all in the same ring at the same time! But that's just a BONUS match, we still have a FULL card underneath it featuring every top PRIME star. This week, we can confirm these five matches added to the card -

PRIME CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: KRIMSON vs. "The Bev" BOBBY BEVERLY
"The Embodiment of Evil" must face a challenge from an athlete who's undergone a meteoric rise this past year, the "Simple Man" Bobby Beverly. Since finding his true self, "The Bev" has been a perennial title contender, and has even stepped up and teamed with Johnny Gargano in a victorious effort. Krimson has been equally as successful, as he has kept The Dead Wrestling Society as power players through this faction warfare, keeping a stranglehold on the PRIME Championship. Can Krimson claim another victim or will Beverly realize his newly-appointed goals and reach the top?

WRESTLELUTION REMATCH: JOHNNY GARGANO vs. JIMMY JACOBS
On a day where we'll find out Gargano's fate for Wrestlelution 6, we'll revisit one of his toughest battles in company history - a rematch from last year's Wrestlelution 5 which saw Gargano battle "The Zombie Princess" himself Jimmy Jacobs. Jacobs was infamous for the way he terrorized and tormented Gargano under the guise of a ski mask before finally revealing his identity and nearly driving Gargano out of his home promotion once and for all. Jacobs has picked up right where he left off since his recent return to PRIME, causing havoc for the likes of Facade, Louis Lyndon, and even Gory. Does Jacobs still have space rented in the head of Gargano or can "The Whole Shebang" make another case to show The Megalomaniacs he can't be held down?

PRIME TAG TITLE MATCH: MARION FONTAINE/JEREMY MADROX vs. FACADE/LOUIS LYNDON
The Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers make their latest defense of the PRIME Tag Team Championships against the long-standing team of the Ninja Elite Squad, Facade & Louis Lyndon. The NES have seemed to not be on the same page in recent months, stemming from their TV Title bout last February at Pressure Rising, and many insiders look at this match as a "now or never" type situation for the team. Commissioner Vic T reportedly took delight in signing the match, appeasing the rest of upper management who are looking for big-name title bouts, but at the same time feeling the Facade/Lyndon relationship will be its own undoing. Are the rumors of the Squad's demise greatly exaggerated or can a title victory save the faction?

GREGORY IRON & ZACH GOWEN vs. THE SONS OF MICHIGAN
In a return match from one of the most personal rivalries of 2012, Iron & Gowen once again meet the team that nearly ended their friendship. It was N8 Mattson & Benjamin Boone who got inside the head of Zach, convincing him that Greg was out to steal spotlight and opportunities away from Zach, to make sure the "Handicapped Hero" eclipsed the "One Legged Wonder". After a touchy few months, Zach finally saw the light, and spent several months defending themselves from a Michigan-based onslaught. What will the result be with this rivalry revisited?

RICKEY SHANE PAGE vs. GORY
Rickey Shane Page's recent series of battles against Krimson will go down as among the most violent we've ever seen on PRIME Television. It's no surprise those battles broke down into all-out warfare between all the dueling factions - Megalomaniacs, Dead Wrestling Society, and of course the PRIME Foundation. Well, after seeing his mentor and master inflict his damage onto RSP, the chief minion wants a turn as well. Gory has been signed to meet Page, no doubt in Commissioner Vic T's on-going plan to make sure his opposition is promptly and swiftly handled. However, Gory is much tougher and more tenacious than his looks may let on. Are RSP & Vic in for a surprise?

Next week, we'll announce event more top level matches featuring the best of PRIME as we begin to countdown to Wrestlelution 6!





MATT CROSS TO APPEAR TONIGHT ON NBC's "AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR"!
PRIME TV News | Jul 8 2013 by primewrestling   
Matt Cross is quite possibly the most widely-known, well-traveled and successful U.S.-based pro wrestler to never have a full-time contract with a national wrestling organization.

Matt's conquering of professional wrestling & reality television continue this week, as Matt is scheduled to appear on the NBC reality series "American Ninja Warrior", a series which challenges people from around the world to complete a physically challenging, complex, and grueling obstacle course of unique stunts to win a grand prize of $500,000 and the honor of being called American Ninja Warrior. The website states you need "courage, determination, and heart" to succeed, all qualities Matt certainly has an abundance of.

The genesis of Matt's story comes long before he entered a wrestling ring. As a junior gymnastics champion, Matt Capiccioni was performing feats of athleticism that left many in awe. Over the next 14 years and counting, he was able to transition skills such as these into an amazingly successful wrestling career which has seen stints in Ring of Honor, Pro Wrestling NOAH, Xtreme Pro Wrestling, and MTV's Wrestling Society X. Matt has been the focal point of retail DVDs, been a character in a video game, and also competed in 17 different countries, from Egypt to Russia to performing on Hulk Hogan's 2009 tour of Australia. In 2011, Matt was named one of the cast members of WWE & USA Network's Tough Enough reality series. While many feel Matt was victimized by selective editing in the series, his appearance only strengthened his fan-base and loyal supporters. Matt currently continues to compete around the country and abroad, including, of course, PRIME wrestling.

"American Ninja Warrior" is set to air this Monday night at 8:00 PM on NBC. Check your local listings for more information.

PRIME TV #184 PREMIERES on STO JULY 14: FACADE vs. GORY
PRIME TV News | Jul 6 2013 by primewrestling   
PRIME TV airs every Sunday at 10PM on SportsTime Ohio with recent episodes showcased on Youtube.com/PRIMEwrestlingTV Here's what's on tap for the next new episode...

Scheduled for this week's episode...

FACADE vs. GORY
It's a re-visitation of one of PRIME's most long-standing and vicious rivalries. Last year, Facade and Gory relentlessly assaulted one another over the grand prize of the PRIME Television Title. While Gory dominated much of the feud, holding that championship captive, it was Facade who successfully liberated the gold, then finished off Gory for good in a brutal Casket Match at Wrestlelution 5. Now, a year later, circumstances brings these two men back together. Facade seemed to have had an awkward moment with friend and tag partner of three years Louis Lyndon when Facade saved Louis from Jimmy Jacobs on our last episode. Will that still be in the "Neon Ninja's" mind? Gory has been backing up PRIME Champion Krimson in their quest to keep The Dead Wrestling Society the top faction in PRIME. Who will come out on top as the fires of hatred are re-kindled this week?

PRIME TV TITLE: Matthew Justice w/Marti Belle vs. Gregory Iron w/Zach Gowen
The cornerstone of the Megalomaniacs, the man who made the plan all come together, Matthew Justice, and his "signing bonus" Marti Belle are enjoying life with Matt as the new PRIME Television Champion. Gregory Iron is at the opposite end of that spectrum, as one of the most victimized members of the PRIME Foundation looking to re-claim what they'd built. After Greg and partner Zach Gowen were cheated out of the PRIME Tag Titles, they were also thrown out of the Cleveland Agora. Now, as we hit the road, Greg & Zach have regained building access and are ready to fight! Could Greg shift the balance of power with a big TV title win?

Benjamin Boone Open Challenge
The Sons of Michigans' heavy continues his quest for competition - over the past several months we've seen Boone dispose of many adversaries - young journeymen such as Jay Flash looking for a break, but at what cost? Who will be next to step up to the plate and face the "Big Bear"?

"M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross Speaks!
We haven't heard nor seen Matt Cross in PRIME since he was betrayed by Matthew Justice at "Pressure Rising". Rumors & reports state that the pressure of watching a company he had helped build for six years potentially come to a crashing halt under its current regime of Megalomania, was too much for Matt to bear, and he needed to take time away to not watch something he loved suffer. Matt has stated his intentions to speak out this week, but what will he say? Is he back in action? Is he gone for good? Matt sheds some light this week!
