Official Statement On Status of PRIME Wrestling
PRIME Live Event News | Jan 2 2014 by primewrestling   
This is a job I've been putting off doing for a number of weeks now, but has been swirling in my mind ever since, so please forgive and indulge me when it comes to the length of the following ...

In September of 2007, I was told about a new wrestling promotion that would be debuting the next month, and asked to be a part of it... at the time, that promotion was called "Pro Wrestling Ohio". I was excited about the idea, as it provided me a chance to expand my creative duties to a level I never had before, and help expose a new audience to what I felt were some of the most promising young talents in this part of the country. Such an undertaking wasn't without tribulations. On a beyond paper-thin budget, and more passion and dedication than I can describe, the journey began. Critics said we wouldn't last six months. No way, not even close. I'm proud to be sitting here six years later looking back on what was.

Over the next several years, we had some ups and we had some downs, just as any promotion would. There were days I would wake up eagerly anticipating working on PWO projects. There were days I would wake up dreading it. But, through it all, the goal of myself and everyone involved was to make the promotion, the television, the talent roster, everything therein, the absolute best it could be under whatever circumstances we were dealt. It was never perfect or ideal, in independent wrestling it never is, but I was and am so proud of what we were able to create the vast majority of the time. As a staff, a roster, a company, and a business, we grew... and we grew up. Every year was noticeably better than the last, and more doors opened for the future.

For those unaware, I worked in a creative capacity for the entire past six years, about five and a half of those six as the head of creative. Essentially, I, along with a few others, wore the matchmaker or "booker" hat. It was extremely strenuous at times, but a position I loved. In late-2011, things began to change. Circumstances necessitated me taking on more responsibilities in the front office, working more closely with first the television production (which I also enjoyed), then later also venues, sponsors, insurance companies, charities, merchandising, and financing. With that, plus our scope now reaching far beyond just Ohio, the "PRIME" name was born and the machine moved forward.

Over the next year and a half, we had some good stretches and we had some not-so-good stretches. While I had a very talented and dedicated team working alongside me, a large burden outside my main focus of the creative & TV production was still upon me, especially financially. What was once a fun and creatively fulfilling outlet that took up part of my "wrestling time" had turned into an overwhelming endeavor that was eating up ALL of my time. By mid-2013, I was decidedly burnt out. I didn't want things to change... I NEEDED them to, for the sake of my own sanity.

In the beginning of 2013, Fox Sports acquired SportsTime Ohio, the network we aired on since 2007. Formerly independently owned, STO was undergoing a slow transformation into a more corporate environment. With that change came new policies, rules, regulations and requirements. One of those requirements, in the form of an insurance policy, would have more than doubled our annual budget for producing a television show. By the end of July 2013, the new network structure was in place, and PRIME Wrestling was temporarily pulled from the airwaves until these new requirements could be met.

Now, Fox is COMPLETELY within their rights to ask what they did of us... but I knew in my heart this was the change. As much as I had given of myself mentally & financially over the past 18 months... there was no way I had the resources left to jump this big of a hurdle. The timing of said hurdle, coupled with other issues going on within our team... health issues, business issues, personal setbacks and other professional endeavors... all coming in a perfect storm, each one making the operation more challenging in its own way... I'm not sure how many of you believe in fate, or "a sign", or anything like that... but it became very clear to me it was time for all of us to make some difficult decisions.

With that in mind, and a heavy heart, it is my duty to make public & official for the first time, that Wrestlelution 6 on October 20 of 2013 was the last scheduled PRIME Wrestling live event for the foreseeable future.

I'm very proud of Wrestlelution 6. I feel it was one of our strongest events ever, if not the strongest. It was an incredible "final chapter" for a company and for everyone who was such an important part of it. For the final story to be told to be the handful of members of the "PRIME Foundation" re-claiming the legacy of what they had built from the forces working against them was beautiful and poetic. All usual merchandise shills aside, I really hope all of you who have ever supported us watch that show, be it on DVD or digitally, through us or Smart Mark Video or anywhere else. It means a lot to me, and I hope it means a lot to all of you.

Will PRIME Wrestling ever run an event again? Maybe. After October 20, there were talks of planning on doing more events on a more limited basis, but things never materialized. In the right place, at the right time, and for the right reason, I would absolutely do it again, no questions asked. I just know that, unfortunately, that isn't here and it isn't now.

I need to thank and acknowledge a number of people. Johnny Gargano & Gregory Iron sacrificed more than anyone will ever be able to realize or understand to make the past six years a reality. Production staff like Mike Moran, among others, were invaluable to our process, and we wouldn't have had a prayer without them. Thanks to Pat, Jim & Dawn at STO for believing in us all those years. Our sponsors over the years, who allowed us to present the quality of shows we did. Others like Bobby Beverly, Matthew Justice, Matt Cross, Josh Prohibition, Dan Arkham, Ben Fruith, Zach Gowen, Bobby Shields, and even my old nemesis Marion Fontaine, sacrificed a lot for something they believed in, and is something I will never forget. Guys like Jason Bane, Sons of Michigan, Jimmy Jacobs, Facade, DWS, Valentino, Aeroform etc brought instant credibility and intrigue to our product. Unsung workhorses from our early days like Mike Tolar, Jimmy DeMarco, Virus & Morty Rackem may not have been around for the majority of our most-watched and memorable events, but helped lay a foundation of quality that was adhered to and built upon from there on out. Pedro, Aaron Maguire, Vic, LaBar, Tom Dunn & Clemons were all vital cogs in the machine as well. Our latest crop - Castle, Madrox, RSP, Jay Flash, Aiden Veil didn't have the time to reach their full potential on TV, but absolutely will elsewhere and the sky is the limit. I mean to leave no one out, everyone was an important part of the process (well, almost everyone -- a few snuck by me I'd rather forget about).

Looking back, I see our six years as a success. It didn't always show that way on paper, and it sure wasn't always fun, but for a group of guys some thought would fizzle out after a few months -- or maybe even the first show -- we were able to do some pretty cool things. International online DVD distribution. National and international television syndication. Four live internet-Pay-Per-View events. Being part of the historic Cleveland Autorama and spend five years running big events at the Nautica Pavilion. Working hand-in-hand with amazing legendary talent like Kevin Nash, Greg Valentine, Al Snow, Rhino, Tito Santana, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Paul London. Working with future stars on the cusp of stardom like Shiima Xion/Zema Ion, Brodie Lee/Luke Harper, Ashley Lane/Madison Rayne, Colin Delaney, Michael Hutter/Derrick Bateman/Ethan Carter III, and the stars whose breaks are yet to come, but will in the very near future. Grabbing the attention of the wrestling world when Johnny Gargano tried to end Gregory Iron's career, or when Marion Fontaine finally struck Justin LaBar.

Looking ahead, the PRIME name won't go away. This website will stay in tact, and remain updated when new news is available. The PRIME Facebook, YouTube & Twitter accounts will stay active as well. I plan to do a ton of things with the PWO/PRIME library... starting with releasing (hopefully) all of our "lost" shows that never made DVD, starting with late 2011-early 2012 and then our shows from this past summer, most of which never made it to television OR YouTube. I also plan to do "Best ofs" of many of our most memorable stars and themes. These will be must-haves for anyone who doesn't own our entire collection and is interested in the best of the best in what we've done.

Anyone who follows my career outside of PRIME knows I've already had my hands in several other projects. I'm in the process of launching Joe-Dombrowski.com and will continue my path as an announcer, writer, content producer, and merchandiser. Please feel free to find me on Facebook (/JoeDombrowskiwrestling) or Twitter (@Joe_Dombrowski), as I'll always post PRIME updates as well when they happen.

Lastly, we wouldn't have lasted even six days without fans... so thank you guys. Your support always drove us forward, through good and bad, and your loyalty was among the most difficult things to factor in when weighing recent decisions. The Justin Summers, Jill Dials, Leonard Bibbs, our buddy Kayden, etc. You guys are as much a part of this company as anyone I've mentioned. I hope you show the same support to support other area promotions I feel strongly about, such as IWC Wrestling in Pittsburgh and Remix Pro Wrestling in Marietta, OH.

It's been real, Cleveland.

"It is easier to try than to prove it can't be done."

9/21 Event Postponed; All Eyes Set On 10/20 Wrestlelution 6!
PRIME Live Event News | Sep 1 2013 by primewrestling   
We regret to inform our fans, our scheduled live event September 21 at the UAW Hall has been postponed. Ticket refunds are being issued presently. We apologize for any inconvenience.

However, now our full focus is on our annual supercard! Wrestlelution 6: Art of War is Sunday, October 20 at 3pm! Stay posted, because we'll start announcing some HUGE matches in the next couple of weeks!


SPECIAL REPORT: COMMISSIONER VIC's SECRET PLAN TO BAN RHINO
PRIME Live Event News | Aug 6 2013 by primewrestling   
Late last year, former World Champion and Extreme Original "The Man Beast" Rhino was rapidly becoming a regular fixture in PRIME Wrestling.

After breaking the five year Wrestlelution undefeated streak of Jason Bane (and the entire wrestling ring in the process), Rhino went on to challenge then-PRIME Champion Johnny Gargano in what was a much-talked about battle that saw both men earn the respect of one another. After the match, however, chaos ensued.

Thanks to Krimson & his Dead Wrestling Society, both Gargano & Rhino became targets, with Rhino being especially victimized three-on-one and left laying and injured. An irate Man Beast returned several weeks later, barging in on a scheduled match unannounced, leveling both athletes with his signature Gore. Rhino delivered a simple message physically and verbally - he was coming for Krimson... but out of respect for Gargano, Rhino would let Johnny get the first crack at the "Embodiment of Evil".

We all know Gargano's opportunity proved unsuccessful thanks to new Commissioner Vic Travagliante overruling Johnny Gargano's victory over Krimson and re-starting the match, allowing Krimson to capture the PRIME Championship.

But why hasn't Rhino been seen since? Word has it our exalted commissioner is up to similar games.

"Vic knows as soon as Rhino returns to PRIME, he's gunning for Krimson and absolutely no one else," we were told by a PRIME office employee on the condition of anonymity, "Vic's ultimate goal is power - and the only major source of power he doesn't have in his camp yet is the stroke and influence that comes with being the champ. He wants a Megalomaniac to wear that title, regardless of who. Vic knows if Rhino wins the title, it will be just as destructive to his ultimate plan as if Johnny Gargano were still holding the title."

Our television cameras were even recently on-hand last month for one such instance of Vic's behind-the-scenes games. As we were documenting a recent interaction between Vic and his hand-appointed assistant/servant Justin LaBar when they were interrupted by a phone call. Of course, Vic forced LaBar to answer his office phone for him. LaBar sheepishly picked up the phone, only to look stunned as he turned to Vic and said "It's Rhino... and he doesn't sound happy". Vic took the call, but not before immediately ejecting LaBar & our cameras from his office.

You may be wondering why you don't recall seeing this footage on television? Vic stormed into our production trailer minutes later and ordered the footage destroyed.

While Vic does his best to keep a stranglehold over Rhino & the rest of PRIME Wrestling, fans who joined us in Parma this past weekend were informed of some very exciting developments on this story that could put a whole new light on this entire issue! Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we catch you up on everything here on PRIME Online!


Matches Added To This Sunday's "Wrestlelution Prelude" in Parma
PRIME Live Event News | Aug 2 2013 by primewrestling   
We are days 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 week we've announced the following additions to the event that will set the stage for our biggest event of all time!

TV Champ Matthew Justice vs. Aiden Veil

"M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross vs. Bobby Shields

Plus much more including the announcement of the Wrestlelution 6 card and these already announced matches...

TEN-MAN ELIMINATION TAG: THE MEGALOMANIACS vs. PRIME FOUNDATION
The war that's been building for months finally explodes in a five-on-five elimination war bonus main event! See Vic Travagliante lead Marion Fontaine, Jeremy Madrox, Rickey Shane Page, Matthew Justice & Nicki Valentino into war against Zach Gowen, Gregory Iron, Bobby Beverly, Matt Cross & Johnny Gargano! Who will be the last to survive before we hit our biggest event of the year?

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?

TEN MAN TAG SIGNED FOR AUGUST 4 "WRESTLELUTION PRELUDE" IN PARMA!
PRIME Live Event News | Jul 8 2013 by primewrestling   
PRIME management has been in negotiations for two weeks now regarding the main event to our huge event this summer - "Wrestlelution Prelude" Sunday, August 4 at 3pm at the Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma. We know something huge was in the works, but didn't expect a first in PRIME history!

Officials have sealed the deal on a ten-man tag team war, featuring all of the PRIME Foundation (Johnny Gargano, M-Dogg Matt Cross, Gregory Iron, Zach Gowen & Bobby Beverly) vs. The Megalomaniacs (Marion Fontaine, Jeremy Madrox, Matthew Justice & Rickey Shane Page) as well as would-be Megalomaniac Nicki Valentino, with Marti Belle & Vic Travagliante at ringside.

Reports state that Vic & Upper Management representative Aaron Maguire had lobbied hard for an eight-man tag battle (minus Valentino & Beverly), feeling they would have a distinct upper-hand, and no doubt had a plan to neutralize their foes, as they often do. However, reports suggest that the PRIME Foundation were able to gain the necessary leverage to coax Vic into agreeing to add Nicki Valentino - who has haplessly screwed up every attempt to earn Vic's acceptance - into the fray, however we are unsure as of this writing exactly how the Foundation were able to get their way. Word has it an incident occurred behind the scenes recently involving Vic & Justin LaBar that we are currently not sure the details of, but word has it when it hits the public eye, it will be major headline news!

Stop by the "Store" section right now to reserve your advanced tickets and be guaranteed front row! This event will set the stage for our huge Wrestlelution 6 spectacular (which we'll be announcing more on shortly!) so you will not want to miss this this show live and in person!

BREAKING NEWS: M-Dogg Matt Cross To Return 6/13 & 6/14!
PRIME Live Event News | Jun 12 2013 by primewrestling   
We haven't seen or heard from 2-time former PRIME Champion M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross in regards to his standing in the company since "Pressure Rising" this past February, when Matthew Justice broke a laptop over the back of Cross, thus betraying his team, screwing over an entire company, and changing the course of events for the foreseeable future.

Shortly after the incident, Matt Cross stepped away from PRIME Wrestling. Rumors circulated that Matt needed to clear his head, perhaps get away for a while. Other more extreme reports suggested that seeing the company he helped build from the ground up get ripped away from those who have sacrificed the most was just too much burden on the conscience and too painful to watch a once-proud company become weakened and damaged by selfish actions of the likes of Vic Travagliante and Aaron Maguire.

We expected to proceed this week without seeing Matt at all, but an 11th hour message to our offices changed those expectations! While Matt's message was very brief and to the point, it gave us no clues as to what to expect from him. Has the events of The Megalomaniacs & Pressure Rising changed Matt? Is he here to fight? To say goodbye? Or for a completely different reason?

See M-Dogg live THIS Thursday night in Lisbon, OH at the Guilford Lake Grille and this Friday at the Agora in Cleveland! PRIME Wrestling is already heating up as the summer approaches! Reserve your tickets online or pick them up at the door, but you want to make sure you are a part of this week's action!

Here are the final updates as we prepare for two straight days of PRIME chaos! 

Thursday, June 13 in Libson:

Six-Man Tag Team War: Johnny Gargano, Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen vs. Three members of The Megalomaniacs
With Vic Travagliante & Aaron Maguire at the helm, PRIME has been run by The Megalomaniacs and for The Megalomaniacs, and it's no secret their main targets have been the pillars of this company who built PRIME from scratch - men such as "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano, "Handicapped Hero" Gregory Iron (and of course M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross who has NOT reached out to us since Pressure Rising). Gargano, Iron, along with the equally important Zach Gowen have suffered the worst, being cheated out of championships and humiliated publicly by being thrown out of buildings. Their cries for revenge have been answered, however sources tell us Vic & Aaron have a plan to ensure this six-man tag goes their way! And which three Megalomaniacs will compete?

Return of "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs vs. Louis Lyndon
Last year, he turned PRIME Wrestling upside down by removing a ski mask and unveiling himself as the man who physically and psychologically tortured Johnny Gargano for some 18 months. Now, after a lengthy absence, the former PRIME Champion Jimmy Jacobs returns and WILL be in in-ring action. It's no secret Jacobs has been tormenting athletes across pro wrestling, most notably as a member of "SCUM" in Ring of Honor... now he returns to face an athlete who posed one of the biggest threats to him in PRIME in 2012! Louis is coming off a recent strong showing in a TV Championship battle, can he put himself back in title contention?

Rivalry Renewed: Facade vs. Gory
Last year, the "Neon Ninja" and the brooding DWS member waged a wild war over the PRIME Television Title, which ultimately saw Facade end the evil-doer's reign as holding the championship captive. A year later and under far different circumstances, both men find themselves across the ring from one another again. Both affected very differently yet very directly from the Megalomaniac rule, both men are essentially battling for table scraps in the land where Megalomania rules. There's no doubt this match will be a visual spectacle, but where will each man go from here as the PRIME landscape gets more treacherous?

Women's Action: Marti Belle vs. Sassy Steph
The newest Megalomaniac, it would seem, and "signing bonus" to Matthew Justice, Marti Belle has already established herself as a formidable force in the ring at Pressure Rising. Now, she goes one-on-one with Sassy Steph, an athlete who has been in and out of PRIME since day one. With Marti's male counterparts currently at war with the foundation of PRIME, it only makes sense Marti now clash with our longest-tenured female. Will The Megalomaniac dominance transcend the gentleman and carry on in this match as well?

Special Challenge: Johnny Gargano vs. Jeremy Madrox
Commissioner Vic Travagliante has announced that there will be two special "warm up" matches before the six-man main event that night, one of which features "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano battling one-half of the PRIME Tag Champions Jeremy "The Butcher" Madrox. As one half of the Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers, Madrox has quickly risen to the top of PRIME, with a little help from friends in even higher places. Gargano has vowed to go through each Megalomaniac on his road to redemption. But can he survive two tests in one night?

Special Challenge; TV Title Match: Gregory Iron vs. Matthew Justice
Vic is also the catalyst for this battle, and inside sources say he has a special plan in mind for this battle. One would have to think Vic has a fool-proof plan in mind if he's willing to grant one of his most vocal and motivated rivals a championship opportunity. What's the story and how will it affect that evening's main event?

Benjamin Boone Open Challenge
The "Big Bear" of the Sons of Michigan has posted a perfect record since openly challenging anyone who dares to step foot in the ring with him. After polishing off three separate opponents at Pressure Rising, Boone then had to turn down a subsequent challenge from young journeyman Jay Flash, whose guts were respectable, but not enough to overcome Boone's brute force. What will the result be this time around?

PLUS: In-ring action featuring Nicki Valentino, Bryan Castle, Columbiana County's own Thomas Adams and more!

Friday, June 14 in Cleveland at the Agora:

TABLE MATCH: FOR PRIME CHAMPIONSHIP - Krimson vs. Rickey Shane Page
After Krimson refused to take part in Vic's grand plot to unify The Megalomaniacs & Dead Wrestling Society, the two most dangerous factions in company history were suddenly at odds. Vic dispatched the always-unstable Page to bring the PRIME Championship to the front office, and what resulted was one of the wildest and chaotic PRIME Title matches ever! Now, with the conclusion to their first meeting marred in controversy, we'll do it one more time with an added stipulation to ensure a decisive winner - it will be a Table Match! The first man to place the other threw a table will be victorious and walk out as PRIME Champion! The battle for power does not get any more important than the top prize in PRIME! How far will each of these warriors go to destroy one another to keep it? This will be violent!

Johnny Gargano vs. Marion Fontaine 
Gargano's mission to plow through the muck & dirt permeating the top of PRIME Wrestling continues, as he faces a rival he's met before... the Megalomaniacs' centerpiece and alleged "PRIME Wrestler" himself, Marion Fontaine. Now one-half of the tag champions, Fontaine is certainly more than formidable enough to stop "The Whole Shebang's" path to redemption, especially considering the strength in numbers his faction enjoys. Can Johnny earn a small measure of revenge for being cheated out of his title and the company he helped build?

"One Man Militia" Matthew Justice vs. "THE BEV" Bobby Beverly
Matthew Justice is quite simply the man that made it all happen... the one that allowed The Megalomaniacs to take power... and he's been rewarded quite handsomely for it. However, one man sick of being in the background is Bobby Beverly. While he's a simple man outside the ring, The Bev has become a fiercer and more determined athlete in 2013, looking for his breakout performance. Many say he achieved that as he & Johnny Gargano scored a big tag win over The Dead Wrestling Society recently on television. A win over Justice, some say, would be even bigger at this point. Can The Bev go from "just a dude" to championship caliber?

"Handicapped Hero" Gregory Iron vs. Jeremy Madrox
Madrox, one-half of the tag champion Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers with Marion Fontaine, has been the biggest thorn in the side of Iron & Zach Gowen, the Handicapped Heroes. It was Madrox's dirty work that kept Zach out of the Pressure Rising tag match that swayed power to the Megalomaniacs, and it was he & Fontaine who spearheaded a plot to essentially divide & conquer Zach & Greg, winning the PRIME Tag Championships in embarrassing fashion. Can Greg avenge his recent string of bad luck against the man who has caused so much of it? Or will Madrox's friends in high places prove vital again?

Women's Action: Marti Belle vs. Sassy Steph
Just 24 hours removed from their first clash, Marti & Steph will do battle once more. Word has it, Steph was quick to jump at the opportunity to challenge Marti for entering what Steph considers her "home turf". Steph has outlasted all other female athletes to come and go through PRIME, and wants to make Marti the latest example! Will she get the job done in two straight nights and send Marti packing?

Rivalry Renewed Part 2: Facade vs. Gory
Another huge rematch from Lisbon will feature the "Neon Ninja" against the chief associate of Krimson. The rivalry between the two was extremely competitive in 2012 and took numerous matches to settle. Once their Lisbon clash was announced, old tempers apparently immediately began to flare again, and the two quickly agreed to take their feud to the historic Agora as well! No matter the result the night before, both will meet one-on-one in their most famed location yet, with no doubt major future title implications at stake!

Nicki Valentino Looks To Prove Himself
In his continuing quest to prove himself worthy for a spot in The Megalomaniacs, Valentino has said he looks to make a major statement and leave a lasting impact with what he does June 14 at the Agora. Can he finally convince Vic & company to take him seriously?

PLUS: In-ring action featuring The Sons of Michigan, Bryan Castle and more!

Here is the most recent line-ups for both nights! 

Thursday, June 13 in Libson:

Six-Man Tag Team War: Johnny Gargano, Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen vs. Three members of The Megalomaniacs
With Vic Travagliante & Aaron Maguire at the helm, PRIME has been run by The Megalomaniacs and for The Megalomaniacs, and it's no secret their main targets have been the pillars of this company who built PRIME from scratch - men such as "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano, "Handicapped Hero" Gregory Iron (and of course M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross who has NOT reached out to us since Pressure Rising). Gargano, Iron, along with the equally important Zach Gowen have suffered the worst, being cheated out of championships and humiliated publicly by being thrown out of buildings. Their cries for revenge have been answered, however sources tell us Vic & Aaron have a plan to ensure this six-man tag goes their way! And which three Megalomaniacs will compete?

Return of "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs vs. Louis Lyndon
Last year, he turned PRIME Wrestling upside down by removing a ski mask and unveiling himself as the man who physically and psychologically tortured Johnny Gargano for some 18 months. Now, after a lengthy absence, the former PRIME Champion Jimmy Jacobs returns and WILL be in in-ring action. It's no secret Jacobs has been tormenting athletes across pro wrestling, most notably as a member of "SCUM" in Ring of Honor... now he returns to face an athlete who posed one of the biggest threats to him in PRIME in 2012! Louis is coming off a recent strong showing in a TV Championship battle, can he put himself back in title contention?

Rivalry Renewed: Facade vs. Gory
Last year, the "Neon Ninja" and the brooding DWS member waged a wild war over the PRIME Television Title, which ultimately saw Facade end the evil-doer's reign as holding the championship captive. A year later and under far different circumstances, both men find themselves across the ring from one another again. Both affected very differently yet very directly from the Megalomaniac rule, both men are essentially battling for table scraps in the land where Megalomania rules. There's no doubt this match will be a visual spectacle, but where will each man go from here as the PRIME landscape gets more treacherous?

Women's Action: Marti Belle vs. Sassy Steph
The newest Megalomaniac, it would seem, and "signing bonus" to Matthew Justice, Marti Belle has already established herself as a formidable force in the ring at Pressure Rising. Now, she goes one-on-one with Sassy Steph, an athlete who has been in and out of PRIME since day one. With Marti's male counterparts currently at war with the foundation of PRIME, it only makes sense Marti now clash with our longest-tenured female. Will The Megalomaniac dominance transcend the gentleman and carry on in this match as well?

Special Challenge: Johnny Gargano vs. Jeremy Madrox
Commissioner Vic Travagliante has announced that there will be two special "warm up" matches before the six-man main event that night, one of which features "The Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano battling one-half of the PRIME Tag Champions Jeremy "The Butcher" Madrox. As one half of the Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers, Madrox has quickly risen to the top of PRIME, with a little help from friends in even higher places. Gargano has vowed to go through each Megalomaniac on his road to redemption. But can he survive two tests in one night?

Special Challenge; TV Title Match: Gregory Iron vs. Matthew Justice
Vic is also the catalyst for this battle, and inside sources say he has a special plan in mind for this battle. One would have to think Vic has a fool-proof plan in mind if he's willing to grant one of his most vocal and motivated rivals a championship opportunity. What's the story and how will it affect that evening's main event?

PLUS: Nicki Valentino, Bryan Castle, "Big Bear" Benjamin Boone, Columbiana County's own Thomas Adams and many more!

Friday, June 14 in Cleveland at the Agora:

TABLE MATCH: FOR PRIME CHAMPIONSHIP - Krimson vs. Rickey Shane Page
After Krimson refused to take part in Vic's grand plot to unify The Megalomaniacs & Dead Wrestling Society, the two most dangerous factions in company history were suddenly at odds. Vic dispatched the always-unstable Page to bring the PRIME Championship to the front office, and what resulted was one of the wildest and chaotic PRIME Title matches ever! Now, with the conclusion to their first meeting marred in controversy, we'll do it one more time with an added stipulation to ensure a decisive winner - it will be a Table Match! The first man to place the other threw a table will be victorious and walk out as PRIME Champion! The battle for power does not get any more important than the top prize in PRIME! How far will each of these warriors go to destroy one another to keep it? This will be violent!

Johnny Gargano vs. Marion Fontaine 
Gargano's mission to plow through the muck & dirt permeating the top of PRIME Wrestling continues, as he faces a rival he's met before... the Megalomaniacs' centerpiece and alleged "PRIME Wrestler" himself, Marion Fontaine. Now one-half of the tag champions, Fontaine is certainly more than formidable enough to stop "The Whole Shebang's" path to redemption, especially considering the strength in numbers his faction enjoys. Can Johnny earn a small measure of revenge for being cheated out of his title and the company he helped build?

"One Man Militia" Matthew Justice vs. "THE BEV" Bobby Beverly
Matthew Justice is quite simply the man that made it all happen... the one that allowed The Megalomaniacs to take power... and he's been rewarded quite handsomely for it. However, one man sick of being in the background is Bobby Beverly. While he's a simple man outside the ring, The Bev has become a fiercer and more determined athlete in 2013, looking for his breakout performance. Many say he achieved that as he & Johnny Gargano scored a big tag win over The Dead Wrestling Society recently on television. A win over Justice, some say, would be even bigger at this point. Can The Bev go from "just a dude" to championship caliber?

"Handicapped Hero" Gregory Iron vs. Jeremy Madrox
Madrox, one-half of the tag champion Brotherhood of Mustachioed Brawlers with Marion Fontaine, has been the biggest thorn in the side of Iron & Zach Gowen, the Handicapped Heroes. It was Madrox's dirty work that kept Zach out of the Pressure Rising tag match that swayed power to the Megalomaniacs, and it was he & Fontaine who spearheaded a plot to essentially divide & conquer Zach & Greg, winning the PRIME Tag Championships in embarrassing fashion. Can Greg avenge his recent string of bad luck against the man who has caused so much of it? Or will Madrox's friends in high places prove vital again?

Women's Action: Marti Belle vs. Sassy Steph
Just 24 hours removed from their first clash, Marti & Steph will do battle once more. Word has it, Steph was quick to jump at the opportunity to challenge Marti for entering what Steph considers her "home turf". Steph has outlasted all other female athletes to come and go through PRIME, and wants to make Marti the latest example! Will she get the job done in two straight nights and send Marti packing?

Nicki Valentino Looks To Prove Himself
In his continuing quest to prove himself worthy for a spot in The Megalomaniacs, Valentino has said he looks to make a major statement and leave a lasting impact with what he does June 14 at the Agora. Can he finally convince Vic & company to take him seriously?


PLUS: Facade, The Sons of Michigan, DWS member Gory, Bryan Castle and many more!

PRIME MAY 17 TV TAPING POSTPONED
PRIME Live Event News | May 14 2013 by primewrestling   
It is with regret that we announce our scheduled television taping for this Friday May 17 has been postponed. There were many contributing factors to this decision, and we felt it was best for everyone involved to make this decision.

We sincerely apologize to anyone who may be inconvenienced by this occurrence.

In addition, we have received questions regarding our television program. New episodes are currently scheduled to air bi-weekly in the short-term.
