Scheduled for this week…

Commissioner LaBar & Upper Management’s Aaron Maguire Presiding At Ringside
This Sunday, we are only TWO WEEKS away from Wrestlelution 5, and an absolutely epic tag team battle has been signed! This will be the very first time that Gargano & Jacobs have been in a ring together since Jacobs revealed himself as the man behind the ski mask who has been toying with Gargano for some 18 months. Gargano will have a shot to restore his status as the franchise of PRIME Wrestling and re-capture the Championship August 19, but this week is all about momentum and psychological warfare. Who can get the upper hand on the other and will we learn who placed the now-infamous ski mask in Jimmy Jacobs’ dressing room two weeks ago? Meanwhile, Matt Cross is in preparation for a huge test in the form of former X-Division Champion Petey Williams in two weeks, and Marion Fontaine will battle Aaron Draven, with LaBar & Maguire ringside. Can these two members f management keep the peace this week? And what will happen with all these combustible elements in one place at one time?

Our cameras catch up with PRIME Champion Jimmy Jacobs, Johnny Gargano, Rhino, Jason Bane, Zach Gowen, Gregory Iron, Krimson, TV Champion Michael Facade, and Gory all speak their minds one final time. Who will make the send the most emphatic message heading toward the biggest matches of the year??

For the first time, we see Bobby Beverly competing 100% on his own and void of the Sex Appeal faction. Beverly has seemingly had nothing but anchors tied to him when it comes to that relationship, but is now looking at a more focused and renewed energy as he prepares to risk the very looks that made him famous, as he battles former teammate Bobby Shields in a Hair vs. Hair match at Wrestlelution 5, with mutual teammate Nicki Valentino as special referee. This week, Beverly faces young debuting Aiden Veil. Can Veil make an impact upon debut or will Beverly show what he’s been truly capable of all this time?

Bryan Castle has something to prove to former mentor Brian Bender, that friendship is more important than bullying and insults. Can Castle overcome the test of alleged two-sport superstar RBI to show Bender that his way may not necessarily be the best way?
