Stunt Granny Interview Series – @RickeyShanePage & @FairToAar of @PrimeWrestling

The Megalomaniacs started to take control of Prime Wrestling at Pressure Rising earlier this year. Part of that equation was bringing some new muscle in the form of Ricky Shane Page. This year at Wrestlelution 6: Art of War, Page will be taking on Bobby Beverly. At the announcers table or by his side, agent Aaron Maguire will be there. They combined their Megalomaniac powers on this interview. Luckily Dan & Kevin were up to asking the hard questions. How did Maguire meet Page? Why did Maguire bring Page into the Megalomaniacs? Kevin asks Ricky how it was to choke out Justin LaBar since he’s wanted to do it since LaBar joined then Pro Wrestling Ohio. Dan asks Maguire if he is worried about being assaulted at ring side since Page attacked Dombrowski earlier this year. Bobby Beverly has cost Page a pair of shots at the Prime Wrestling Title against Krimson. Does he want another shot at the title without interference? Is Johnny Gargano on his hit list since he has helped Beverly? The guys get around to asking Aaron how he feels about the other match ups that comprise the best of three series for the Prime Wrestling Commissionership. The matches are B.O.M.B. – the Brotherhood of Mustachieod Brawlers – team of Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox against the Handicapped Hand Guns of Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen for B.O.M.B.’s Prime Tag Team Titles and Matt Cross taking on the man who stabbed him in the back, Matthew Justice for the TV Title. Will Marte Belle be a factor in the later match? Would Ricky be able to grow a mustache as good as Fontaine & Madrox? If the Megalomaniacs lose this series, do they have a back up plan? Will Maguire reveal that plan? Find out when you click on the link below!

#PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 12

Matthew Justice is taking on Michael “The Bomber” Facade for the TV Title at the top of the show. The highlight of the beginning of the match is the bickering between Joe Dombrowski and Aaron Maguire. It was a slow start. Facade fancy arm dragged Justice out of the ring. Facade drop kick Justice into the guard rail. Justice dropped Facade neck first on the top rope. Facade head scissored Justice over. A big clothes line turned thing in Justice’s favor. Justice slammed Facade then hot dogged during the pin. Justice thought he threw Facade out of the ring but he held on to the top rope. Facade walked the top rope and drop kicked Justice. A pair of atomic drops by Facade was followed by a leg lariat. Justice gave Facade a face buster. Facade got tossed outside. Facade super kicked Justice. He got a two count from a spring board bulldog. Facade kicked Justice to the outside. Facade nailed a spring board 360. Marti Belle low blowed Facade. Justice gave Facade a top rope DVD. Justice is the new TV Champion. They kiss in the ring.

Analysis: This match was solid but not great. Facade still tries to do too much. Justice looked rusty. It didn’t help that Dombrowski pointed out how little he has wrestled since coming back to Prime Wrestling. Score: 0.

Bobby Beverly wanted to explain why he is supporting Johnny Gargano and Prime Wrestling against all of these factions. He gives a good defense of Prime promo. Analysis: Much better than his “Man of the earth” promos. Score: +1.

Bryan Castle is taking on JJ Deville, who weighs 165. Deville goes for the head band. Castle splashes him in the corner. Deville fires back but doesn’t phase Castle. Backpack chin jacker is the winner for Castle. Analysis: It was what it was supposed to be, a squash match. Interesting finisher for a big guy though. Don’t you follow up with a splash to reinforce your size? Score: +1.

Gregory Iron & Zack Gowen pound on some doors. Gowen explains that they are locked out. They are going to overcome the obstacle of locked doors like they have with every other challenge in their lives. Iron said that they’re going to come back stronger than ever. Gowen saves they’re going to save the company or die trying. They go back to kicking the door. Analysis: The door pounding parts were cheesy in a bad way. The promos were good though. Score: +1.

Nicki Valentino is taking on Aiden Veil. I’m not liking Late Night’s chances. Veil worked over Valentino’s left arm with various moves. Veil double chopped Valentino. Nicki took over with axe handles to the back. Valentino choked Veil while he distracted the ref. Nice. Veil slammed Valentino from the top rope. Veil got a two count from a bulldog. Veil gave Valentino a modified White Noise. Valentino gave Veil the old trick knee. Valentino follwed with a DDT. Valentino bragged to the camera. Veil rolled up Valentino for the win.

Analysis: Good match up. Veil is on his way up. He had a good showing in his tag match and his singles bouts. Valentino is filling his role well. Score: +1.

#PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 10

Marion Fontaine came to the ring to interrupt what the opening of the show. Fontaine was out there to taunt Zach Gowen with his own cane. Gowen got in early offense. Fontaine shoved the ref at Gowen to create an opening for himself. Gowen got a boot up on a charging Fontaine. He then missed a second corner charge. Gowen no sold a DDT. Gowen nailed a swinging neck breaker. Fontaine shoved the ref into the ropes to knock Gowen off the top. Fontaine tried to attack Gowen with his own cane but he missed. Gowen rolled him up for the three count. Fontaine attacked Gowen after the match. Gowen got the upper hand. Vic Travagliante came out and tossed Gowen from the building. Security escorted him out.

Analysis: The match was good. I’m not a fan of the baby face getting the upper hand already though. Vic and company just took over. They need to look dominant for at least a show. Several shows would be much better. Score: 0.

N8 Mattson came out for a match. Bobby Beverly was his opponent. They exchanged basic moves. Mattson went to the outside after an enziguri. Beverly kicked Mattson in the chest while on the apron. Mattson gained control with a jaw jacker. Beverly chopped Mattson. A running leg lariat by Mattson led to a reverse chin lock. Beverly elbowed out but ran into a knee. Mattson got two after a leg drop. Mattson missed a corner splash. Beverly fired away. Beverly nailed a kick to the face. Beverly got two from a back breaker. Mattson lawn mowered Beverly from the ropes. Beverly gave Mattson a power slam like flap jack. Beverly super kicked Mattson for the win.

Analysis: Beverly turned it up at the end of the match but it wasn’t his best performance. I’m still not a fan of his “Salt of the Earth” and “Regular guy” gimmick. Bleck. Score: 0.

Johnny Gargano gave us a history lesson on Prime Wrestling. He is most proud of his championship in Prime Wrestling. Gargano said Prime is like his family. He said him and others like Gregory Iron and Matt Cross make this league what it is. He is pissed at both the Dead Wrestling Society and the Megalomaniacs. Gargano isn’t going to sit back. He told us that Matt Cross had to go home to clear his head. Gargano asked for someone to join this lop sided fight. He said the war begins next week. Analysis: Good stuff out of this guy as usual. Not sure how he isn’t in TNA or the WWE. Score: +1.

Because Zach Gowen was thrown out earlier tonight, the tag team championship was a handicapped match. Gregory Iron took on Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox. They tried to attack Iron but he turned it around on them. Iron sling shotted on Fontaine & Madrox on the floor. Madrox held Iron back from getting back into the ring. Fontaine took advantage by super kicking him. Madrox & Fontaine took turns hammering on Iron. He countered a move into head scissors. Iron DDTed Fontaine but he wasn’t legal. Fontaine & Madrox did a side slam & leg drop combo. Fontaine tossed a belt to Madrox. He missed Iron but distracted the ref so that Fontaine could nail him with the other belt. Fontaine & Madrox won the tag team titles. Vic Travaglainte tossed Gregory Iron from the building.

Analysis: I liked the victory but it was almost the complete opposite of the opening match. They over killed how they needed to beat Gregory Iron. It’s two on one to start with. It’s been done that way before but I think it makes the heel look too weak. They organized & executed the match well. Vic tossing everyone he doesn’t like is a good idea. I hate heel commissioners who keep people around. Make your life easy, toss the thorns in your side. Score: +1.

Vic Travagliante got a formal introduction from Pedro De Lucca. Vic told us that we’re all welcome for being in the presence of him. Vic invited Justin LaBar down to the ring. He is going to be Vic’s assistant. Vic sent LaBar to the back to clean their bathroom. Matt Justice is mad because no one ever talked about him. He said he isn’t a Megalomaniac but he’s with them. He has a match for the TV Title. Justice goes to the back to see his signing bonus. Vic orders Krimson down to the ring. Vic tells them to join forces. All he has to do is give Vic the Prime Championship. Vic tells Krimson he’ll be his worst nightmare. Kirst & Gory come out for the save. And they stop the show.

Analysis: So are they turning the Dead Wrestling Society baby face? It’ll be interesting to see if Gargano ends up joining forces with the DSW to rid them of a larger problem. I’m no fan of evil commissioners so this one will be tough to follow. LaBar being the put upon lackey isn’t going to make matters any better. Matt Justice leaving out his own departure to the WWE should be a point brought up later so hopefully Cross will get the chance to reply. Score: 0.

Final Score: 2/5. Final Analysis: I was warned of this episode by both Dan and Jeremy. It lived up to the disappointment. The show cut too early. The lighting wasn’t great. The sound wasn’t the best. Evil commissioners blow. -Kevin

#PrimeWrestling – Pressure Rising Interviews

woman  microphone

Prime Wrestling decided to do review shows from their iPPV on regular TV. I won’t review the matches since I already did that here. They didn’t show the matches in their entirety but they showed the ends to all of the matches. I’m not a fan especially since they were still shilling the iPPV. DJ Korey was our host.

“Amazing” N8 Mattson was the first interview by Courtney, who really needs a microphone even if it doesn’t work. Mattson said that he was looking for real competition not a comedian like Bryan Castle. He said that even Castle’s mother is ashamed of him. Mattson said he’d amaze Castle tonight with his victory. Bryan Castle did his promo solo. He said he hasn’t had much luck with partners starting with Mattson, Brian Bender or Bat Dan Arkham. He said his luck was going to change tonight. Analysis: Mattson had a decent showing but not one of his better ones. Castle needs to get a new direction. I’m going to keep beating that drum for a while.

Courtney interviewed Marti Belle who interrupted her introduction. Belle left New York just to come here. At the end day, she said she’s number one. Belle said it in Spanish first. I think she had a Dominican Republic baseball jersey on. Melissa was new to Prime Wrestling. She was with Jessie Kaye. Jessie doesn’t think Belle knows what she’s getting into. Kaye wants to annihilate her. Analysis: These women are opposites. Kaye is great on the mic, terrible in the ring. Marti is terrible on the mic, great in the ring. Courtney needs to look more interested & Melissa was so over the top. They’ve got some work to do but it’s early.

Bobby Shields was in the locker room. He has suffered through a lot of pain. Shields said that most men would go into a depression if they went through what he did. Now that he lost his hair, he’s lost everything that was important to him so he’s dangerous because he’s lost it all. Shields told Nicki Valentino to side with him. Bobby Beverly wanted to put an end to Sex Appeal for good. Beverly said he’d kick off Shields head and if Valentino didn’t go to his side, he’d do the same to him. Nicki Valentino was “squatting” 360. He said it’s a big night for him. He decided to buy one fanny pack for each of them. Valentino said he’ll make his intentions perfectly well known by the end of the night. Analysis: I liked Shields promo even if it was rehash material for the most part. Beverly had no substance. Valentino’s promo was good and really should have been aired before the PPV or during it. I don’t think Aaron Maguire or Joe Dombrowski adequately covered Valentino’s promise. The setting for his promo was a little odd. 360 doesn’t seem unreasonable to squash but he clearly wasn’t doing one then when the camera’s arrived.

#PrimeWrestling – #PressureRising iPPV

pressure_rising_poster_prime_wrestling_by_jeremyhovan

I’m guessing neither Prime Wrestling or Jeremy Hovan (designer) will object to me using this jpeg.

Joe Dombrowski and Aaron Maguire introduce the show. The big news is that the Prime Championship match will be wrestled under relaxed rules. “Amazing” N8 Mattson was the first out with Benjamin Boone in tow. Bryan Castle was his opponent. Castle used his size early. Matt Mason has diverticulitis. Mattson tried to slam Castle. It got reversed. Boone distracted Castle so that Mattson could attack him from behind. Mattson drop kicked him low. Boone took advantage while Mattson distracted the referee. Mattson drop kicked Castle in the knee. Mattson got a two count from a second rope leg drop. Mattson missed a charge in the corner. Castle connected with punches, clothesline and axe handles. Mattson reversed into a Code Breaker for a two count. Boone tried to distract Castle who whacked him with Mattson in the fireman’s  carry position. Mattson got spun onto Castle’s back for a package Stunner and a Castle win.

Analysis: Fun opening match. They could turn this into a match for Wrestlelution between Castle & Boone since they’re closer size wise. Score: +1.

Marti Belle got to introduce herself. She said that many of the men in the crowd don’t have experience with women like Prime Wrestling. Jessie Kay was her opponent. Kay arm dragged her several times. Belle tossed Kay by the ears. Belle strangled her on the second rope. Belle elbowed Kay. Belle reverse chin locked Kay. A Jaw jacker by Kay led to a neck breaker. They traded elbows by Kay won. Belle kicked out of a swinging neck breaker. Kay spine bustered Belle. Marti Belle hit the Reality Check for the win.

Analysis: Jessie Kay was as disappointing in the ring as she was awesome on the mic. Marti Belle didn’t get any help so I’ll wait and see on her. Score: 0.

Bobby Shields came out without covering his head. Bobby Beverly was next. Nicki Valentino came out with fanny packs for each Bobby. Beverly knocked Shields out of the ring. Beverly & Valentino traded blows. Shields attacked Beverly from behind. Valentino attacked Shields after a push by him. Valentino missed with a suicide dive. Beverly took over. Dombrowski tried to feed the “Simple man” stuff with Beverly. It’s not working. No one likes it. Shields tossed Beverly outside. Valentino attacked Shields. Shields put him on the top rope. Beverly kicked Shields. Tower of Doom. Beverly & Valentino punched away on Shields. Beverly suplexed Valentino. Shields attacked Beverly. Power sunset flip by Valentino on Beverly. The Bobbys double super kicked Valentino to the outside. Shields went for his finisher. Beverly reversed. Shields tossed Beverly into the referee. Shields fanny pack didn’t contain the chain. Beverly went for his fanny pack but nothing was in it. Beverly super kicked Shields. Valentino nailed Beverly with the chain. He tried to pin both Bobbys but failed. Shields went for his finisher on Valentino but got super kicked by Beverly. Valention groveled when Beverly found the chain. Beverly super kicked Valentino for the win.

Analysis: An excellent match. I liked showing that Valentino had more sense than he has been presented. LEt’s hope he gets even more smarts as they move along. I think he can do more than the goofy pet raccoon gimmick. Score: +1.

The Megalomaniacs (Marion Fontaine, Jeremy Madrox & Ricky Shane Page with Vic Travagliante) against Team Justin LaBar (Matt Cross, Gregory Iron and Matthew Justice) was up next. Cross started against Fontaine. Cross got in a standing moonsault early. Iron went to work on Fontaine. Madrox & Fontaine collided. Justice squared off against Page. Justice grabbed his knee. It looked to be legitimate. Iron was pitted against Madrox. Iron ended up taking the beat down from the Megalomaniacs. Nope, it sounds like the knee injury was a work if he is refusing care in the back. Iron finally fought his way out of a double team with Fontaine & Madrox. Cross came in and crushed everyone. Cross caught the heels with a top rope moonsault onto the floor. Cross missed a Shooting Star Press. Iron cross bodied the Megalomaniacs on the outside. Vic and LaBar fight. Justice grabbed the lap top from Maguire. He then cracked Iron with the lap top. Page covered Iron for the win. Dombrowski isn’t doing a great job trying to garner sympathy for LaBar or “the company”.

Analysis: They did a good job with the injury angle but it all makes sense now. Let’s hope they don’t forget about his heel turn like they did when he joined the Dead Wrestling Society. Justice gives them an interesting piece. He could really be the leader. The match was well wrestled. They took an intermission after this match so time for the read more button. Score: +1.

#PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 7

I’m going to try things a little bit different today. Prime Wrestling has an iPPV, Pressure Rising, on Saturday evening. I’d like to be able to catch up so that I can do a preview before then. We’ll see how Saturday shakes out. Hold on, I think my girl works that night. I’ll ponder that thought more later. I’m going to do a quicker style review than normal. I don’t feel as bad since I attach the video if possible these days.

Bobby Shields is taking on Michael “The Bomber” Facade for the TV Title. Shields grabbed the mic. People don’t understand the pain of him losing his hair. Joe Dombrowski & Aaron Maguire recap Shields’s assault of Facade last month after he’d been injured at another event. They had a stare down while Pedro De Lucca does the formal introductions. They stalked each other before trading blows. Facade connects with a leg lariat. The camera man had a hard time following Shields outside the ring. Facade walks the ropes but Shields shakes him off. Shields stomped away. Shields drops knees after a suplex. Shields missed a moonsault. Facade hulked up. A spring board moonsault got Facade a two count. Facade drop kicked Shields for another two. Shields got two from a Northern Lights suplex. Shields nailed a Mafia kick. Facade kicked out after a Falcon Arrow. Nicki Valentino dropped off his fanny pack. Shields found an empty fanny pack. Bobby Beverly appeared on the entrance ramp and laughed at Shields. Facade nailed the Irashikagi Driver for the win.

Analysis: Very good match. Facade has limited his flying which has made his wrestling better. I wonder if the recovery from a broken foot has anything to do with it. I’d love to see Shields get a run with the TV Title. Nice suspense with trying to figure out whether the dolt of the defunct Sex Appeal knew about the missing chain or not. Score: +1.

Vic Travagliante gives Justin LaBar a chance to back out of his match. They employed a secretary or they are really filming at LaBar’s office. Vic found no one in his office. Vic found all of LaBar’s stupid ideas on his computer. Vic stole the lap top and dropped his calling card which was a moustache. Analysis: Filming criminal activities is always stupid. Score: 0.

Bryan Castle, Edric Everhart & Tony Johnson teams against the Megalomaniacs, Ricky Shane Page, Jeremy Madrox and “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine. The Megalomaniacs isolated Everhart early. Page got Castle to snap. Page ended the rampage with a Roaring Elbow. Death Valley Driver on Everhart for the win. Analysis: A definitive win for a team that needs it. Two rookies are taking on some of the biggest stars in Prime Wrestling. Score: +1.

#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 6

The opening match up was Benjamin Boone with N8 Mattson taking on Matt Mason. Mason started out by yelling O-H for the crowd to respond I-O. (Ugh. Isn’t this why you went less local with the name?) Boone rolled to the outside after a leg lariat by Mason. They both budged during a shoulder block. Mason talked to the crowd too much.Mason rolled to the outside which confused Boone. Mason went under the ring. He surprised them with a plancha. Mattson had a meeting of the minds with Boone courtesy of Mason. Mattson held Mason’s leg as he got back into the ring. Boone took advantage with some stomps. Mattson strangled Mason as Boone distracted the ref. Mason caught Boone with a back elbow and boot as he charged twice. Boone belly to belly suplex Mason. Someone botched a move. Boone locked in a bear hug. Mason raised the hand during three. Boone clotheslined Mason. Boone gave him a modified reverse chin lock.  Mason reversed the hold. Back cracker only got Mason a two count. Mattson grabbed Mason’s leg as he went to the top rope. Jake Lemon, the referee, did nothing as he watched it happen. Boone guerrilla slammed him from the top rope. Mason went for a back slide then flipped Boone around and gave him a knee to the face. Mason wins.

Analysis: Mason played to the crowd way too much. It’s OK to get them involved but leading a chant, having a talk and clapping numerous times is overboard. Clap once, maybe twice a match. I’m not sure who botched the move but it didn’t help the quality of the match which wasn’t that great. I’m not as high on Boone as I used to be but Mason seemed like the bigger problem. I also have no idea why the ref didn’t disqualified Boone for Mattson’s interference despite the fact that he looked right at it. Score: -1.

Ricky Shane Page was accompanied to the ring by Vic Travagliante. He was taking on an also debuting Jay Flash. Page rubbed his face on the top turn buckle. Page splashed Flash in the corner. Flash ducked the next charge and kicked Page in the face. Flash low drop kicked him. Page went to the outside. Page caught Flash during a suicide dive attempt then slammed him on the apron. Page slammed Flash’s head on the apron. Page chopped and punched him. Flash fought back. Page slammed Flash. Page gut bustered him.Page locked in a clover leaf. Flash reached the ropes. Flash ducked a Roaring Elbow and gave Page a running elbow. Page no sold it and  several moves after it. Page gave Flash a buckle bomb. Page with the Roaring Elbow for the win. Page kneed and elbowed Flash after the match. Page gave him some type of driver. Page went to attack the referees when the cops were called down. They arrested him and took him off.

Analysis: They established Page’s character really well but the finish is a little weird to me. He can’t come back right away, correct? I understand he comes back because he’s favored by the Aaron Maguire side of management. I think he losses a little bit of momentum to start things off unless it was a one off character anyway. Jay Flash is a great name. The kid was ridiculous fast and worked really well. Good big man vs little man match. Score: +2.

Nicki Valentino came to the ring unannounced. He told Chris Van Vliet to sit down. Valentino then told him to leave. Valentino admits to being a goofy guy. He said that he has a serious side. Valentino blamed Van Vliet for making the crowd stupider. Valentino told Van Vliet to punch him. Van Vliet acts like he wants to punch him. The referees separate them. Analysis: That might be the first time in wrestling history that worked so easily. It makes Valentino look stupid doing this. Van Vliet is just doing the announcing and hasn’t interfered in anyone’s match since Wrestlution. He’s not hogging extra time like hosts of Raw in years past. Pedro De Lucca took up the same amount of time so why didn’t Valentino attack him years ago? His promo rambled at times to boot. Score: -1.

@PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 5

Joe Dombrowski and Aaron Maguire open the show running down the matches tonight. The main event is Matt Cross versus Gory. Jeremy Madrox (whoops I thought it was Madlocks) is fighting Edric Everhart, both of who are debuting. “Amazing” N8 Mattson is kicking off the show against Bobby Beverly. Benjamin Boone accompanies Mattson. The match starts with stalling. Beverly takes over with some basic moves. Dombrowski admits the obvious and mentions Mattson’s weight loss, but says he’s in better shape than he was the last time he was in the ring. Maguire backed him up. (They’re both nuts if by losing muscle mass, you get in better shape.) An enziguri takes Mattson to the outside. Beverly nails a running forearm off the apron. Boone distracts Beverly. Mattson assaulted him from behind. Mattson chokes Beverly when they got back to the ring. A high knee by Mattson got a two count. Beverly fought out of a neck vice. Mattson gave him a neck breaker. Mattson gave Beverly a fisherman’s buster. Beverly kicked out after a middle rope leg drop. Beverly stopped the tide with a Downward Spiral. Beverly clothes lined MAttson twice. Beverly with a back breaker. Boone distracted the ref and Beverly. Nicki Valentino pulled Boone off the apron. Mattson got slammed into Boone & Valentino who both got back up on the apron. Beverly rolled him up for the win. Beverly goes to shake Valentino’s hand but Nicki brushed it off and went back stage.

Analysis: Not exactly the way I’d like to see it finish. I’d wish for a clean Beverly victory. The stories fit together though. Boone would want to help Mattson, Valentino is still undecided so he helps his boy out. I get it. Well wrestled match that has more potential if they gave it more time. Score: +1.

Kirst felt like a junky after he power bombed Gregory Iron. He needed to get that high again. He did it to Daniel Arkham. Kirst finished by saying that he’ll send him to hell but Iron will like it better than what he puts him through. Analysis: I’m just not a fan of the rhetoric and he didn’t take advantage of the filming like Kirst does. He hasn’t had much promo time on here so I’ll see if he can improve. Score: 0.

Nicki Valentino talks about the black cloud coming over Prime Wrestling. He doesn’t like the celebrities who have nothing to do with wrestling. He points out Corey and Chris Van Vliet. He thinks we may think he’s crazy but he thinks there’s only one way, old school. Valentino said that he has a plan to rid the celebrities of Prime Wrestling when they least expect it. Analysis: His character is going somewhere but they need to go all in with the serious Valentino. I feel like they’re half assing it. I like his delivery better than Kirst. Score: 0.

Jeremy Madrox was accompanied to the ring by “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine. They said Madrox is from the west side of Columbus. That’s a lot of territory dude. I live on the Northwest side. I need a direction. Edric Everhart came out second. Madrox knocked him down with a shoulder block. He trash talked the crowd. Everhart clothes lined him. Everhart shoulder blocked Madrox down. Everhart flying shoulder blocked him. Everhart slammed Madrox. Everhart nailed a running forearm. Madrox caught him coming in the second time. Madrox slammed Everhart into another corner’s turnbuckle. Madrox jump kicked Everhart, similar to a Broski Boot. Madrox locked in a nerve hold. Fontaine grabbed Everhart’s leg. Madrox gave him a back suplex. Madrox locked in the camel clutch for the submission win.

@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.
