#PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 9

YouTube-blockedFor some reason, this episode is not on YouTube yet. It’s been more than a week. They usually post it the Tuesday after it airs. Oh well, I’ll replace that picture as soon as I see it posted.

Kirst comes out dressed like Hobo Joe again. He is accompanied by Krimson. Matt Cross was his opponent. Kirst jumped him while he played to the crowd. Cross arm dragged him a couple of times. Cross low bridged Kirst. He followed it with a suicide dive. Kirst turned around an Irish Whip to toss Cross into the guard rail. Kirst attacked him with the collection can while Krimson distracted the ref. Cross back dropped Kirst over the guard rail. They got back into the ring. Kirst ducked Cross and nailed a clothesline. Cross tossed Kirst into the air and flap jacked him. Kirst kicked out at two. Kirst choked Cross on the middle rope. Standing moonsault by Cross was followed with a pin. Kirst tossed Cross into the corner. Kirst dropped a leg. Kirst wasted time mocking Hobo Joe. Cross caught him with a reverse atomic drop. Cross got two after a cross body. Cross gave Kirst the Mortal Combat corner kicks. Kirst suplexed Cross. Kirst went to the top but Cross caught him. Cross went for the Shooting Star Press but Kirst rocked the ropes. Kirst went for a superplex. Cross tossed him away and nailed the SSP for the win. Kirst attacked Cross. Gregory Iron made the save. Ricky Shane Page, Marion Fontaine and Jeremy Madrox attacked. Vic Travagliante was directing traffic.

Analysis: Good match. It did way more for Kirst than any other match. I understand the attack on Cross but it did take away some from Kirst’s showing. Score: +1.

They replaced Gregory Iron being hurt by Kirst last year. Krimson said that every absurdity has a title to defend. Krimson said that Johnny Gargano and Rhino think they have what it takes to stop the Dead Wrestling Society. Krimson said that Gargano doesn’t have it in him. Analysis: Another good promo from this guy. This guy has been awesome. I need the You Tube just to show this promo. Score: +1.

Korey comes out and introduces Michael “The Bomber” Facade. He injured himself in a taping for Extreme Rising pay per view so he can’t wrestle right now. The injury isn’t serious. Facade said he’ll be back in a month. Bobby Shields came out and claimed the Facade was faking it. Shields said that injury wasn’t as traumatizing as it was for him to lose his hair. He lost his identity and dignity. Facade said he wrestled on two broken bones in his foot. Shields stomped on the foot then gave him a thrust kick. Shields attacked the foot with a chair. Shields said that his title reign is just a facade. Shields said the logic belongs to him. Shields said Facade’s read locks were an embarrassment. Shields attacked his ankle with Facade’s cane again. Analysis: Good stuff from Shields. Facade was okay. Korey just seems over eager. Kind of like his day job calls for. I don’t particularly like it. People obviously do. Score: +1.

@PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 3

Pedro De Lucca has to introduce Corey as the special guest referee. Jimmy Jacobs is introduced first. Bobby Beverly is his opponent. Beverly rushed the ring and they start brawling. Beverly clothes lined Jacobs to the outside. Beverly nailed a nice enziguri as Jacobs tried to get back in the ring. Beverly kicked him from the apron. Jacobs dodged a diving Beverly who hit the guard rail. Jacobs tossed Beverly into the guard rail. Beverly bicycle kicked Jacobs. Beverly chopped him. Jacobs DDTed Beverly coming back into the ring. Jacobs low drop kicked him. Jacobs got in a neck breaker. After taunting the crowd, he hit another. Jacobs yapped to Corey. Beverly hit a back breaker. Jacobs rushed into a corner and Beverly hip toss (I think I’m using the wrong move, but) Jacobs into the corner. Beverly caught him with a suplex to target the back again.Jacobs kicked Beverly in the crotch. Then did it to Corey. Jacobs grabbed a chair. Beverly blocked it. Nicki Valentino came out and got the chair. Corey pulled him down.  Corey grabbed the chair from Jacobs. Beverly rolled up Jacobs for the win.

Analysis: A really good match. The right person won too. Jacobs can recover, if he’s going to be around. I was ready to kill the DJ but he must have had some training. Corey looked more comfortable in the ring than I expected. Score: +1.

Gregory Iron admitted to defeat from N8 Mattson. Iron said that it was more important for him to have the respect of Zack Gowen. He said that they plan on taking out the Sons of Michigan. Iron said he hasn’t forgotten about Kirst. He is mad at him. Iron said him & Gowen will climb to the top of the tag team ranks and battle him and Krimson. Iron finished by saying he was “dealing with a loaded hand gun” then shot the camera. Analysis: Greg, you had me until the end. That was so cheesetastic I didn’t even like it.  I mean, I watch shows for their cheesiness. Not good. Score: 0.

Justin LaBar said that it has been quite a ride as commissioner. He said a chair shot and being low blowed by Marion Fontaine was to be expected. LaBar said that being thrown against the guard rail by Vic Travagliante was worse be cause he was a trusted friend. LaBar shows a picture of them at Vic’s wedding. He said he’s done being taken advantage. He said they would fight some time. LaBar said that he’s not going to travel alone and introduces Matt Cross. He’s mad at Vic & Aaron Maguire because they’re taking the spot light off of the wrestlers. Cross said he was happily standing by LaBar’s side. Analysis: LaBar was fine. Cross brought the fire. I like showing off the travel credentials. Score: +1.

Stunt Granny Review of @PRIMEWrestling #Wrestlelution 5: An Enduring Spirit

N8 Mattson wonders why you didn’t go to or buy Wrestlelution.

Dan & Kevin are back to talk about Wrestlelution 5.  Dan watched on iPPV and Kevin went to the event, how did these experiences differ? It all started with Kevin telling Dan by text that the event was starting late which they didn’t mention online. Did Dan have any problems aside from that with the stream like Ring of Honor has had? The guys started in the middle of the show talking about the inadvertent ring breaking during the Rhino vs. Jason Bane match. They then reboot and start by talking about the show from start to finish. Did the show start with a crowd pleasing, high energy match with Michael Facade taking on Jason Gory in a Casket Match for the TV Title? Zach Gowen taking on Gregory Iron was the next marquee match. Did they deliver in the ring or with their story? “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine finally got to finish his feud with Justin LaBar by beating Aaron Draven. Who was the “Ace In The Hole” that Aaron Maguire talked about? Dan & Kevin get around to talking about the match itself between Rhino and Jason Bane. Did it deliver? The barber delivered a hair cut to Bobby Shields in his Hair vs. Hair with Bobby Beverly. Did Nicki Valentino steal the match even though he was only guest referee? Matt Cross taking on Petey Williams was supposed to be the highlight of in ring action, so was it? The main event was Johnny Gargano challenging for the PRIME Wrestling Title against Jimmy Jacobs. Did it cap off a long event due to delays? Find out that and more when you click on the link below!

Stunt Granny Audio Show Wrestlelution 5 Review

@PRIMEWrestling – #Wrestlelution 5: An Enduring Spirit

The ring went boom in the Rhino vs Jason Bane match.

Wrestlelution 5: An Enduring Spirit was a fine event but getting back to my place at 10:30 PM made it a little hard to do a write up about it. There were two elements that led to a late arrival back in Columbus. The first part was that the event was supposed to start at 3:00 PM. Luckily for myself and my girl, since we showed up at 3:05,  they didn’t start the event until about 3:20. The second problem is pictured above. I’ll get to that when I talk about the match between Rhino and Jason Bane.

I’m hoping to post pictures from the event on Facebook later because the girl was taking pictures during the majority of the event until her camera died for the main event. Maybe I’ll even post Dan Kuester’s pictures from last year’s event. It didn’t dawn on me until we got there that this was her first live wrestling event. She’d never seen a wrestling crowd for real, so that was very entertaining. I had bought us tickets to the first two rows which ended up putting us in the view of the hard camera off to one corner of the ring. If you got the iPPV, as Dan did, or you catch some of the matches on SportsTime Ohio, look for the guy with the brownish Hawaiian shirt on.

Jason Gory took on Michael “The Bomber” Facade for the TV Title. I thought it was a good match to start with because it gave us some violence since it was a casket match. Facade is also pretty popular and signs posters with his spray paint so he gets the crowd involved. Gory was in a ridiculous Freddy Krueger outfit that even had striped pants just like Freddy’s sweater. They also billed Gory at 185. If he weighs that, my scale is lying to me because he isn’t the same weight as me. Facade is normally a very sloppy wrestler but he cut down on his mistakes and delivered a good match with Gory. Facade retained his title which is good since he’d been gunning for it for the past year and a half. No reason to yank the rug out from him like TNA would have done since he’d won the belt only a couple of months ago.

Louis Lyndon took on Benjamin Boone next. This match received very little build up so it was hard to get invested in it. They did fight against each other in tag teams last year so they had some back story. Lyndon surprised me because I don’t remember him being that tall. It continues to confuse me as to why Flip Kendrick got the deal with TNA and not him. Mattson did good crowd work during the match. It was a solid match that ended with a roll up by Lyndon for the three count. I feel bad for Boone who had worked himself into good shape then just keeps losing. I hope he gets a better direction next year especially since he’s one of the few big men in the league.

Kirst fought Matthew Justice. This match was another one with very little build up. It looked like Justice was going to join the Dead Wrestling Society the last time he was on TV but that was not the case. As a whole, Justice has not been on TV much since his return from WWE Developmental. The end of the match saw Kirst kick out of a Death Valley Driver then roll up Justice less than a minute later with a hand full of tights, which I couldn’t see. (I think the ref was in the way.)

Zach Gowen against Gregory Iron was up next in an inspirational story vs an inspirational story match. I thought this story had some flaws in it because Gowen came into the league to help Iron against the Dead Wrestling Society but ended up joining forces with the other heel faction in the Sons of Michigan. The idea that Iron “stole” Gowen’s thunder for an inspirational story doesn’t seem right either. I’m pretty sure you relinquish that when you admit to substance abuse problems that you just overcame. That aside, it still didn’t make much sense to turn on Iron this quickly. The match was good. The ending helped wrap up a story that made no sense. The referee was going to allow a blatant cane shot by Gowen, who passed up the opportunity. The hesitation allowed Iron to hit the Destabiler aka the Stunner for the win. N8 Mattson attacked Iron after the match and was going to let Gowen make up for his earlier mistake but he decided to attack Mattson and Benjamin Boone who was holding Iron back. A feel good hug came after wards but it was a confusing story arc.

Stunt Granny Interview Series: @FairToAar Aaron Maguire of @PRIMEWrestling

Aaron Maguire at Wrestlelution 4 as a guest time keeper.

Aaron Maguire is back again to promote Wrestlelution 5: An Enduring Spirit. Just like the Undertaker, he’s keeping his streak of appearances on this podcast alive. One streak he wants to break is his clients losing at Wrestlelution. Will his man “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine beat “Omega” Aaron Draven? Will Maguire get the chance to slap the goatee off of Justin LaBar? What trick does he have up his sleeve for this match? After previewing his own match, we move on to run down most of the card. Maguire answers whether Bobby Beverly or Bobby Shields will look better bald. Will Nicki Valentino call it down the middle as the special guest referee? Matt Cross takes on Petey Williams in their first ever singles match. Does Maguire think they’ll deliver in the ring?  Rhino has delivered in rings all over the world, but will be be able to deliver against Jason Bane who is 4-0 at Wrestlelution? Or is it 5-0? Last year, Bane delivered against Krimson. With Jayme Mason now in Krimson’s corner, will he be able to defeat Matt Mason? Krimson’s disciple Gory will take on Michael Facade in a casket match? Will this be the most brutal match Wrestlelution has ever seen? A heart breaking story already is Zach Gowen taking on Gregory Iron. Will the One Legged Wonder come out on top now that he’s aligned himself with N8 Mattson & The Sons of Michigan? Last but not least, Maguire talks about the main event match for the PRIME Wrestling Title between “The Zombie Princess” Jimmy Jacobs and Johnny Gargano. Who will come out of Jacobs Pavilion with the title? Find out that and more when you click on the link below!

@PRIMEWrestling – Season 5 – Time To Catch Up Part II

I may have a panic attack trying to fit in my wrestling duties this week. I’ll be squeezing in an audio with the always entertaining Aaron Maguire tomorrow night. I’m hoping to get this past week’s show done tonight too. No more yapping, let’s start this party.

Aiden Veil starts the program off taking on Bobby Beverly. Veil is making his debut with a pair of drumsticks and he hailed from “The Stage”. I love these early gimmicks. Bobby Shields was on commentary with Joe Dombrowski. Beverly offers a hand but Veil slaps him. Beverly tossed him outside the ring and kicked him in the chest from the apron. Beverly chopped away before tossing him into the ring. Veil used his drum sticks to get an advantage. Ah, this past week’s episode was a review for Wrestlelution. I’ll get to catch up on what I missed, hopefully. Beverly nailed a fisher man’s suplex but only got a two count. Beverly followed it up with a super kick for the win. Bobby Shields charged the ring and a brawl ensued. Nicki Valentino tried to separate but needed help from the referees. Solid work from both guys in the ring. Shields could still use some work behind the head set.

Gregory Iron isn’t sure what to say about Zack Gowen. Iron can’t believe he’s buying into N8 Mattson’s BS. Iron is wondering why Gowen has given up on being a role model. Iron said he knows there would be no Gregory Iron without Gowen. (Someone needs to get him a book about the birds and the bees or he could just clarify that he means the wrestler.) Iron said that he’s going to have to fight him. Gowen appears above him. He talks about how he’s had to fight every day of his life. Gowen wished he could have called him a failure when he was a child. Iron is going to fight him because of the kids that look up to him. Gowen calls him pathetic. Iron leaves the area. Solid segment but Iron should really be more pissed at Gowen at this juncture. He should be ready to fight him willingly.
