@PRIMEWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 4

The opening the show is “Late Night” Nicki Valentino who is introduced by guest ring announcer Chris Van Vliet. Valentino asked for respect from Van Vliet then made him re-introduce him. His opponent was a debuting Jay Flash. Valentino kicked him in the gut. Valentino celebrated after a clothes line. Flash arm dragged him twice. Valentino took a walk outside. Flash got hung up on the top rope when he tried to drag Valentino back in. Valentino pounded away. Flash got a pin fall but Valentino was still on offense. Valentino went for a body scissors. Flash punched and chopped Valentino. Flash snap marred him then kick him in the back several times. Valentino dragged Flash outside. Valentino chopped Flash then tossed him against the guard rail. Valentino had a reverse chin lock on. Flash gave him a head scissor take over followed by a drop kick. Flash went for a crucifix pin but Valentino block him so Flash turned it into a power crucifix. Flash missed a splash in the corner. Valentino locked in the cross face chicken wing for the submission.

Analysis: Fun match. Flash is really green but had a ton of energy. His punching was pretty terrible. He moved around the ring well and executed other moves fairly well. He’s got some potential. Valentino got another quality win where he didn’t look like a goober. I’m not sure why the story line is playing him like he is a lackey. His in ring performance is clashing with it. I like serious or at least more serious Nicki. Score: +1.

Vic Travagliante acts indignant about Justin LaBar issuing a challenge to him to a fight. He is talking to Aaron Maguire who’s on a land line (They’re in an office. I’ll let it slide.) and “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine. Vic is not worried about Matt Cross helping LaBar. He drops the fact that Fontaine has beaten him three straight times. Vic accepts the fight for next week. Vic says that neither of his guys will be at ring side so LaBar needs to leave Cross in the back. Maguire has a big announcement. He has hired Jeremy Madlocks who is Fontaine’s cousin. He is sporting a Rollie Fingers and talks that they’re great because of their mustaches.

Analysis: This was three different promos. Vic had the most time though and he did a good job. He faltered a bit in believeability for me. Maguire had the shortest of the promos. I had a problem with him saying the guys name. I have no idea if Madlocks is correct because I couldn’t understand it after listening to it three times. Jeremy had enough time but I’m not sure what to think of him highlighting the mustaches even more. Odd way to set up the character. Am I supposed to take him seriously? Is he a joker that no one laughs at? I’ll give him more time but not a good start. Score: 0.

Bobbinette Carey is taking on Jessica Havok. Carey is the Queen of Epicness. Maguire sold Carey as the best female wrestler out there. He ended a long list of compliments by saying that “When she was born, she did a kip up.” Maguire then bemoaned the fact that LaBar had actually signed Havoc. He did a good sell job for her too. Carey ducks a clothesline then does jumping jacks. She asks for a time out. Havoc kicks Carey three different ways. She knocked Carey out of the ring. Carey shoulder blocked Havoc in the gut coming back into the ring. Carey kicked Havoc who was on her knees. Carey bull dogged Havoc. Carey slammed Havoc’s head against the canvas.  Carey choked her on the middle rope. Carey got in a quarter assed neck breaker. Havoc kicked Carey in the side three time. Havoc gave Carey the Havoc Driver aka White Noise for the win.

@PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 2

There was a theme to this show. Guess why the picture applies.

This review will be interesting. I’m watching on my lap top so it’ll be a chore to flip between the  action and typing up the report. “Amazing” N8 Mattson returns to the ring to take on Gregory Iron. Benjamin Boone is accompanying Mattson. I’d have to take a look at their website but Iron’s new shirt looks pretty nice. Mattson looks like he could have hit the gym a little bit more before making his comeback. Plenty of stalling to start the match. Joe Dombrowski counters my observation by saying that Mattson looks to have been hitting the gym during his time off. Mattson shoulder blocked Iron down. He charged at Iron again but got chopped. Mattson poked him in the eye. Iron came back with more chops. Mattson kneed him in the stomach in response. Boone strangles Iron while Mattson distracts the referee. Mattson taunts Iron while he kicks him while he’s down. Iron sneaks in a small package but got nailed with a high boot coming out of it. Mattson only gets a two count from a fisherman’s suplex. Mattson locked in a sleeper. Iron didn’t drop the arm the third time. Iron jaw jacks Mattson. Iron got caught in a small package by Mattson. Iron cross bodied him for a two count. Boone grabbed Mattson leg after an Irish Whip. Mattson kicked Iron who was down for a back body drop. Mattson nailed the M80 for the win.

Analysis: I wish Mattson hadn’t gotten help on his return to the ring. He’s been gone for a year. Establish that Iron is in trouble without Gowen by having him loss clean. Good match in the ring though. Score: 0.

Krimson was on old film that kept flipping like an old horror movie.He said that every absurdity has it’s champion. Krimson told Johnny Gargano it was his title for the taking. He then warned Rhino that he spent his whole career being the hunter. Krimson asks if he’d like to be hunted. Krimson doesn’t care who wins their match next week because he will take them out. Analysis: The production on his promos is so far above anything else. The horror story film is a nice touch and advances his theme that started black and white. I liked his message too. Krimson continues his roll. Score: +1.

Vic Travagliante said that his turn was the most unexpected turn of Wrestlelution 5. Vic said he was tired of being Justin LaBar’s errand boy. Vic said that he has done everything for this company but he hasn’t gotten the TV time or advancement that LaBar has. Vic warned that LaBar’s days were numbered in the company. Analysis: A well delivered simple message even if the turn was in no way unexpected. Score: +1.
