18 months ago a mystery man disguised in a ski mask, assaulted Johnny Gargano. Over the next year, injuries and setbacks continued to play a part in Gargano’s career, until he found himself near paralyzed in a ring in Philadelphia, PA this past January. A week after that ordeal, the man in the ski mask revealed himself as Jimmy Jacobs. Driven by envy and ego, this psychological master continued his plot to drive Gargano from his very own home, and assume Johnny’s role as the franchise of the organization, face of the company, and the greatest champion in company history. Jacobs has accomplished every goal he has aimed to do thus far, and now looks at PRIME’s largest stage, Wrestlelution, to finish off Gargano’s legacy at his very own event. Gargano looks to use this platform to show Jacobs a side of him that Jimmy has never seen – the side of Johnny that appears only at Wrestlelution each and every year. Can Johnny Gargano reclaim his spot at Wrestlelution 5 or are we truly in the era of The Zombie Princess?
