This week, on PRIME Wrestling TV, two matches were added to the card that have fans buzzing –
"One Legged Wonder" Zach Gowen vs. Gregory Iron
In 2003, Zach Gowen defied every odd possible when, in spite of losing a leg to cancer at age 8, Zach realized his dream of becoming a wrestling superstar known the world over. One of Zach's many fans was a 16-year old Gregory Iron, himself suffering from cerebral palsy. After watching Zach, Greg started to believe that he too could overcome his limitations and live his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Greg did just that, starting a whirlwind of attention that includes ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Fox News, and a personal endorsement from CM Punk last year. Greg realized another dream when Zach Gowen came to PRIME Wrestling to team with Greg, in an attempt to win the Tag Team Titles, but after Greg was injured via a powerbomb a month ago, and a miscommunication between Greg & Zach this month (watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e11NEeWRJ9c), the world's most inspirational team imploded. Now, wrestling's most unusual and unexpected match has been signed as the world's only wrestler with cerebral palsy Gregory Iron is forced to fight his own personal hero Zach Gowen. We will get comments from Zach & Greg about this match this upcoming week on PRIME Wrestling TV, on SportsTime Ohio as well as our YouTube page (www.Youtube.com/PRIMEwrestlingTV)
PRIME Championship: "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs vs. "Whole Shebang" Johnny Gargano
18 months ago, Jimmy Jacobs entered PRIME Wrestling disguised under a ski mask, injuring Johnny Gargano's back with a video camera. After a year of mind games and psychological warfare, Jacobs finally unmasked at the start of this year and put Gargano through even more hell. It was Jacobs' mission to march into Gargano's own hometown, home promotion, and place Johnny built his reputation and force him out. Jacobs wants to replace Gargano, not just as the top star in PRIME Wrestling, but in all of independent wrestling. According to Jacobs, everything Gargano has done in his career, Jacobs did it first and Jacobs did it better, but never got the credit or adulation Gargano enjoys today. After manipulating Sex Appeal to aid in his mind games, Gargano overcame their threat (watch the clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asQ4JGxVBsA) to earn a shot at Jacobs and the PRIME Championship Gargano once held longer than anyone. Can Johnny Gargano reclaim his legacy or can Jacobs erase the name of Johnny Gargano from PRIME Wrestling at the very event Gargano has stolen the show at year after year?
This in addition to the matches we announced last week…
"The Man Beast" RHINO vs. "Most Dominant Man" JASON BANE
After losing out on a PRIME Championship opportunity earlier this year, former champion Jason Bane set out on a mission to re-prove himself. To do so, he challenged ANYONE to face him one-on-one and didn't care whether it was someone within PRIME Wrestling, someone from another wrestling organization, or even someone from the world of mixed-martial arts. We were all surprised to hear that "The Man Beast" Rhino had been the man to answer the call. Rhino is a two-time World Champion elsewhere, and is known as one of the most dangerous and intense competitors in the industry today. Bane, meanwhile has earned his reputation as PRIME's Most Dominant Man, and is 4-0 in Wrestlelution battles, including a victory over Raven two years ago at Wrestlelution 3. It is Baneline vs. Gore in the battle of two of the most ruthless athletes anywhere!
"Megastar" MARION FONTAINE vs. "Omega" AARON DRAVEN
Commissioner Justin LaBar & Upper Management's Aaron Maguire Presiding At Ringside
The feud between Fontaine and LaBar has waged for nearly two years now, and was only intensified with LaBar was named PRIME Commissioner and, essentially, Fontaine's boss. Fontaine and adviser Aaron Maguire hatched an elaborate plot to frame LaBar as "unfair", leading to Upper Management putting LaBar on probation, and naming Maguire to the board to help watch over things. Fontaine had the advantage for a while, but when he "accidentally" struck LaBar with a steel chair, he too was put on probation by Upper Management! Finally, the two agreed it was time to settle this for good – Fontaine will meet LaBar's hand-selected representative and the man who pinned Fontaine in the main event of last year's Wrestlelution – the thrill-seeking high-risk "Omega" Aaron Draven! Furthermore, LaBar & Maguire have both stated they will be ringside to watch over the match. Anytime these two have gotten involved, it has only made things more chaotic and impossible to control! Who will have final bragging rights in the Fontaine vs. LaBar rivalry?
Plus: Special Ring Announcer – Cosmopolitan Bachelor of the Year 2011 and local entertainment reporter Chris Van Vliet & Special Guest Timekeeper – New 102 DJ Kory!
Next week we will announce even more matches, including a former X Division Champion making his PRIME debut in a one-on-one match that has never taken place before anywhere!
