United Wrestling Network presents it’s sixth episode of Prime Time LIVE, the weekly episode pay-per-view that blends talents from promotions within the United Network as well as the NWA and free agents from across the globe. Last week David Marquez announced the new United Wrestling Network World Championship, but this week they will announce the brackets for the show. Marquez even took to twitter to say there would be competitors from major wrestling promotions. Tonight’s episode is a return to form featuring a NWA Championship being defended on the program, the feud between Zicky Dice and Da Pope kicked off right here on Episode 4 and we will see if it comes to conclusion tonight.
This well traveled wrestler has spent much of her career traveling all over North America. Jaynes has the distinction of being in the NWA World Woman’s Matchup that saw Jazz win the Championship by defeating Amber O’Neal and Jaynes. Similar to her opponent Alzie, she’s wrestled in Mexico with the Crash. She has a championship victory over Thunder Rosa winning the Baja Stars Women’s Championship in San Diego back in 2019. She has made appearances for Impact Wrestling and AEW and as of late as become a stable in SWE Fury– the same promotion where Tim Storm is currently champion.
A product of Reality of Wrestling and trained under Booker T, Miranda Alize has had some high profile matches being an entrant in the WWE Mae Young Classic. She has had been part of RISE and SHIMMER, STARDOM, has worked many independents of Mexico including DTU, and the Crash. She recently competed matches in AEW, Impact, and AAA.
Feeling in for the One The Call Manders, is yet another Santino Brother’s standout Jesse James. James usually teamed with Hoss Hogg as True Grit. They have held tag team titles all over SoCal. The “Western Roughneck” recently made his United Wrestling Network debut this past weekend appearing on Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. James will remind you a bit of Justin Hawk Bradshaw in his early days. His victory over Jack Cartwright was a good way to kick off his tenure on the Network.
Caster returns to PTL to take on Jesse James. On his debut, Caster stepped into the ring against rising star Chris Dickinson. Caster pushed The Dirty Daddy more-so than any other opponent to stand across the ring against him. Caster will be one to watch over the next few weeks.
UNITED WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS SOCAL DISTANCING
Adrian Quest and Andy Brown have yet to defend their titles since they last appeared on the ppv. Their victory over the Real Money Brothers was decisive, however, this pair have a lot to prove. The tag team ranks in Prime Time LIVE is getting stronger with each passing week. The duo mix speed and striking, but often give up size when in the ring. Tuesday night they will have to overcome size to Shaw and quick wit to Jervis.
FRIENDSHIP FARM (JERVIS & SHAW)
Make no bones about it, The Friendship Farm are polarizing figures. Chris Dickinson made reference to “Gentlemen” Jervis specifically as “what’s wrong with Prime Time LIVE,” in their last appearance. “Sweet” Robin Shaw were unsuccessful in their first match on pay-per-view losing to the Real Money Brothers. And although the duo offer friendship, there was harsh criticism for the pair after their first appearance on the program. Cottonbelly and Shaw do have a CWFH TV victory over 4 Minutes of Heat, which is probably how they earned this match for the United Wrestling Network World Tag Team Titles.
Bennett to his lost to NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship with grace and earned the respect of many on that September the 15th. With talks of crowning a new United Wrestling Network World Champion, Bennett will return to Prime Time LIVE. Bennett defeated ROH’s Cheeseburger at Warrior of Wrestling in Illinois a few days after his loss to Aldis. He would also take part in the Black Label Pro Turbo Graps 16, losing to “Filthy” Tom Lawlor in the opening round. Although Bennett should his fortitude, if he wants to be taken seriously, he’s going to have to start racking up some wins before he can be in contention for any championship title.
You aren’t going to many competitors tougher that JR Kratos. Kratos spent the early part of 2020 wrestling for All Japan Pro Wrestling, sharing the same ring Jokuto Omori, Rising HAYATO, and Tsugutaka Sato, Tako Omari, Yuma Aoyagi, Hikaru Sato, and so many more. Kratos competed at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport #2 last year. He also defeated Tim Thatcher at last years King of The Indies event. Kratos is a 2 time APW Universal Champion. Krato’s last appearance saw him face off against Tim Storm (who was still the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion). Kratos makes an excellent addition to this already very tough roster.
What more could be said for the in-ring debut from Da Pope. He was partnered with the right guy in Watts. They did what they needed to do to get the victory. Burke was tremendous on the microphone channeling his inner-Dusty Rhodes. But all things considered, it’s a bad night when the television champion spits on you. I do believe that Elijah Burke was going to become more of a big time player on NWA POWERRR. With the efforts of the NWA set on bringing back the beloved brand, you have to think that Da Pope is just itching to win a championship to be apart of what comes next for the NWA. However, Dice is clever. Perhaps spitting on the Pope was more about getting into Pope’s head. If Dice can get the Pope off his game, then he could perhaps take advantage of the distracted Pope.
Controversy has surrounded the “Outlandish One” since the NWA took it’s hiatus due to Covid-19 and restructuring. Fightful had reported that Dice has requested and was granted his release, but the NWA never wavered in it’s recognition of Dice as it’s Television Champion and it was almost as if Dice was mocking wrestling fans on Twitter acknowledging he was still NWA TV Champion. Zicky won that title on January 24th 2020, by defeating then champion Ricky Starks on Episode #20 of NWA POWERRR. Because of the pandemic pause; Dice has yet to defend his championship at a NWA event. His only defense comes in the form of a match up with Rix Luxury where he was victorious at East Bay Pro Wrestling, back in March. Dice’s appearance on Episode of Prime Time Live was his first match back for the United Wrestling Network.
