#PrimeWrestling – Live Events Only

Short Break

Unfortunately, Prime Wrestling has taken a hiatus. One of the reasons I waited to make this post is because I still needed to do one last review. The other reasons I didn’t post was because it was made not long before my vacation. I also didn’t get an alert which means I’m likely to miss anyone’s post. So this is the post from August 4th.

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!

I will definitely be there for Wrestlelution 6. It’s a shame that their pre-Wrestelution show which recorded the night before this post will not be aired. They will be doing written reviews on their website. Episodes 185 & 186 are posted there now. You don’t get my witty commentary but it’ll do in a fix. At least they aren’t having Justin LaBar do it. At least I hope not. I’m sure it’d be a gem just like his article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review about how Sin Cara will never make it. Glad you went out on a limb. I’ll get fellow Prime Wrestling aficionado Dan Kuester on the horn later this week to talk about this topic and more on Prime Wrestling. -Kevin

Fox Sports Buys Sports Time Ohio. Will @PrimeWrestling Stick Around?

Fox Sports Ohio

A friend who works for Fox Sports sent out a link yesterday that said the Cleveland Indians were selling SportsTime Ohio to Fox Sports Ohio. As a fan of Prime Wrestling and MAC Sports both of which currently air on STO, I was concerned with how the transition would happen and whether my favorite wrestling organization would survive the cut. Sources have told me that Prime Wrestling will continue to air on STO and that they expect to extend and expand on this new relationship with Fox.

I would have to think that the relationship will be a positive for Prime Wrestling since STO has 2.8 million viewers while Fox reaches over 5 million viewers. Fox is packed with programming since they broadcast the Columbus Crew, Cleveland Cavaliers, Cincinnati Reds, ACC & A-10 basketball and Big East football & basketball. It would be easy for Fox to split the viewership into two for the state by turning STO into Fox Sports Cleveland and Fox Sports Ohio into Fox Sports Cincinnati. They may need to juggle some programs from one station to the other but it would be done easily. Now if only Kent State could keep a winning football coach, I’d be excited about watching more MAC football games on FS Cleveland. -Kevin
