Prime Time Live Episode 3 Primer
Episode 3 of Prime Time Live airs tonight on FITE, On Demand, and DirecTV Pay Per Views. Tonight’s show will be headlined by two Championship matches. The NWA National Heavyweight Championship will be on the line when Trevor Murdoch challenges Aron Stevens and the United World Tag Team Champions Social Distancing defend against Real Money Brothers.
Prime Time Live goes live at 9pm Eastern on FITE TV, On Demand, and DirecTV as part of its weekly episodic Pay-Per-View Series. Broadcasting live from Thunder Studios tonight’s show will feature two NWA sanctioned matches (including the National Heavyweight Championship Match), Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, and Championship Wrestling from Arizona, as well as talents from the East Coast.
Known as Princess Aussie while she wrestled for Women of Wrestling, Cece Chanel has been continuing her training with The Santino Bros Wrestling Academy, she made debut for CWFH in an Elimination Four Way Match with Heather Monroe, Lacey Ryan, and Sandra Moone. Cece has yet to win a single match in Hollywood. She has been actively wrestling for two years.
Known as “Thee Equal Opportunity Ass-Kicker” Ruby Raze is also a product of the Santino Bros. With a handful of matches in Impact Wrestling as well as appearing in WOW, Raze has spent time wrestling matches in Southern California as well as New Orleans as a part of WildCat Sports. Raze was a regular for CWFH, but hasn’t been seen in action since she defeated Kevin Condron in the company’s first-ever Inter-gender match exactly 3 years ago. She was also the first female to compete in the Red Carpet Rumble. Raze never lost a singles match at CWFH. Raze much like the rest of the wrestling world had been idle until recently. She’s been taking her training to the next level, by working with Indie Legend B-Boy. She has also joined the online coaching staff at Santino’s to help train new students. Raze has also added surfing to her repertoire. I expect Raze to make an impact tonight.
More commonly known as the “Greek God,” Papadon has been a fixture of wrestling in the North East for a better part of a decade. With a propensity for capturing championship titles, Papadon is a former champion for NWA promotions Cyberspace and later Shockwave. Much like the beloved Eddie Kingston, Papadon was trained by Homicide. Early in pre-TNA days, Nick Aldis shared a ring with Papadon. The Greek God has back to back wins against Aldis while on a tour of the United Kingdom. On that same tour, a young Marty Scurll would team up with the Cougar Kid to take on Aldis and Papadon. This will be Papadon’s debut for the United Wrestling Network, but in the past, he has worked with promotions affiliated with Championship Wrestling from Hollywood including AWS, NYWC, and NWA On Fire.
One half of the Whirlwind Gentlemen, with Jack Manley, Remy Marcel is a bit of a tag team specialist. The duo has competed on high levels with promotions based on the West Coast, Paragon Pro Wrestling, West Coast Wrestling Connection, Future Stars of Wrestling, and have even appeared on CWFH at the 2017 Red Carpet Rumble. Marcel was also part of the American trainers to help established OWE back in 2018.
On episode 1 of Prime Time Live, the Dirty Daddy bullied, beaten, and bruised Jordan Cruz in was more of a mugging than a wrestling match. Dickinson made a brief appearance last week as he called out David Marquez and specifically Jervis Cottonbelly because of the antics that Jervis used in his match against the Real Money Brothers. With no opponent yet announced, I’m not entirely sure what Dickinson will do while in at Thunder Studios, just yet.
Nicole Savoy has the job of replacing Serena Deeb who was originally scheduled to face the former NWA World Woman’s Champion Allysin Kay. Deeb announced shortly after she had signed with All Elite Wrestling, that she had been exposed to Covid-19 and was forced to quarantine for two weeks, making her ineligible to compete for the United Wrestling Network. However, it should be noted that Savoy is more than a worthy replacement. Although Savoy has made appearances in Ring of Honor, AEW, and Shimmer, she gained much notoriety by taking part in the WWE’s Mae Young Classic. In that tournament, she advanced in the first round only losing in the second round to Cadance LaRae. Savoy is also no stranger to Championship gold as she is still the reigning Pro Wrestling-Revolution Woman’s Champion. (It should also be noted that PWR is loosely affiliated with CWFH). She was trained at All Pro Wrestling in Northern California by the likes of Mike Modest and Oliver John (a former NWA Heritage Champion).
IN in the Semi-Main Event, we see a return of the Real Money Brothers, who were successful last week in defeating the Friendship Farm. However, Andy Brown and Adrian Young won’t be as easily defeated. Known as Social Distancing the United Wrestling Network World Tag Team Champions have had a lot of recent success in Hollywood, but the duo have been teaming together on and off since about 2016. Brown (a former Hollywood Heritage Champion) and Young were brought together by Ray Rosas late last year as part of the stable Static. The anti-social triad dominated the ranks of Hollywood. As a trio, they captured all of the gold in the United Wrestling Network. Until recently it appeared that the three were inseparable that all changed when Brown and Young attacked Rosas and joined a new leader. Individually, Brown and Young are solid in the ring. Both combine high-risk moves, not unlike last week’s Kevin Martenson and Danny Limelight. Both move around the ring effortlessly. Interestingly enough, this will be the first title defense for Social Distance.
NWA NATIONAL HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
In the Main Event, Aron Stevens (formerly known as Damian Sandow) will defend his championship against Trevor Murdoch. Stevens won the NWA National Championship at NWA’s Into the Fire by defeating Colt Cabana (the former champion) and Ricky Starks in a Three-Way Match. Stevens approach was to dip, duck, dodge, and flat out hide in the match up. It was considered an upset victory. Stevens has had two title defenses since. At Hard Times on January 24th when he lost the match by disqualification to Scott Steiner and at Time Limit Draw with Trevor Murdoch on Episode #17 of NWA POWERRR. Stevens. The NWA recently released a promo from the lost episode of NWA POWERRR where Sean Mooney interviewed both about their match-up that was to take place at the 2020 Crockett Cup. While these two really don’t need an introduction to wrestling fans, here was my take on this matchup.
Editor’s notes: I didn’t spend time profiling Allysin Kay or specifically Aron Stevens or Trevor Murdoch because of their greater notoriety in the world of wrestling.
