Prime Wrestling "Wrestlelution 6" Results
October 20, 2013
Parma, Ohio
Report by Nick Sidel of Cleveland, formerly residing in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., PWTorch reader


This was my first time seeing an indy show in Ohio and seeing many of these guys wrestle, besides Rhino.

(1) Ricky Shane Page beat Bobby Beverly. Big size difference as Page really outsized the 5'7" or so Beverly. By the way, really short wrestlers was a trend on this card. Prime's villain commissioner Vic Travagliante came out and distracted the ref, letting Page kick Beverly in the crotch for the win.

(2) Josh Prohibition (w/Chris Van Vliet) pinned Nickie Valentino. Van Vliet is the entertainment news reporter for CBS Cleveland. Valentino was scheduled to face the infamous "mystery opponent," who Van Vliet announced as Prohibition. Prohibition won after hitting a Razor's Edge into the turnbuckle followed by double underhook piledriver. After the match, Van Vliet hit a nice-looking Rock Bottom on the enlarged, short wrestler.

(3) Matt Cross beat TV champion Matt Justice (w/Marti Belle) to capture the TV Title. Cross, who is very athletic and agile, could pass for a shaved-headed Daniel Bryan doppelganger. The original ending saw Justice whack Cross with the TV belt and get the pin. Not so fast, as special guest outside referee, ex-WWE ref Jimmy Korderas, ordered the match be re-started, setting up Cross to win. Good match.

(4) Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen beat Jeremy Madrox & Marion Fontaine to capture the Prime Tag Titles. This was presented as kind of a freak match. The end saw Fontaine go for a top-rope somersault senton, but Gowen pushed him off, although he still landed on Iron, who didn't roll away in time. Iron grabbed his legs and victory rolled him for the pin to win the Tag Titles.

[Excessively-long intermission]

(5) Gory beat Jimmy Jacobs, Facade, and Louis London in a four-way elimination match. Gory pinned Facade, Jacobs pinned Lyndon, and Gory finished Jacobs with a Tombstone lift into a slam. Decent match, some high-flying.

(6) Bobby Shields & Sons of Michigan beat Bryan Castle & Jay Flash & Aiden Veil in a six-man tag match.

(7) Johnny Gargano submitted Paul London. During his entrance, London literally walked all the way through the gymnasium, making a point to slap hands with everyone everyone in the crowd. London, who looked worn in the face, wore his "intrepid" orange jumpsuit with the "NASA" logo. Mid-way through the match, London fell really bad from a back body drop. There was an awkward prolonged pause as he sold it until Gargano finally went to check on him like a chump and got a kick to the face for his concern. London hit a Shooting Star Press, then Gargano used his submission on Paul for the tap-out. I was disappointed by the match after hearing a lot about Gargano.

After the match, London cut a promo putting over Gargano as an up-and-comer who is better than he was at his age. He thanked the fans and ended it by telling Gargano that he will fight with him at any time he needs him. They hugged in the middle of the ring.

(8) Prime champion Krimson beat Rhino in a weapons-filled garbage match to retain the Prime Time. They brawled through the crowd and then smacked each other with frying pans and pizza trays. Krimson got a ladder from under ring, which was used later. The finish had Rhino missing the Gore and running into the ladder, which was set up between the turnbuckles.

Afterwards, it was announced that Krimson must wrestle again tonight...against Johnny Gargano.

(9) Johnny Gargano beat Krimson to capture the Prime Title. Gargano did the "look what's behind you" point, so Krimson looked behind him to see Rhino coming at him for the Gore. Gargano then got in the ring and kicked him in head to become the new Prime champ. A unique call to go with the Money in the Bank-style championship victory for the hometown babyface.

Post-match, Gargano thanked the fans and a few of his buddy wrestlers who came out to congratulate him. He first called Gregory Iron to the ring, then Matt Cross, saying "he should be on Monday nights making a million dollars," then Josh Prohibition. Someone behind the curtain then yelled at him to "shut up" because he "wants to go home." Seriously. It was a long show, so I decided to leave while Gargano was still talking up people.

Overall, it was an all right show that just ran really long, especially the marathon intermission. I'd say there were 200-250+ in attendance with maybe 33 percent young kids mixed with the typical wrestling crowd. The thing that stood out the most was all the really short wrestlers, like under 5'8", and how most need to hit the gym if they want to make an actual career out of this and look legit.
