What type of first name is “Gran” anyway? Did your Dad just get really lazy while filling out your birth certificate or something? Nonsensical first names aside…what are you crying about now? I swear, every single word out of your mouth anymore is “I used to do this,” “I was a part of that”…
This is a “what have you done for me lately” business, Akuma, and all you’ve done for anyone lately is sit at home, kick things, eat Cheetos (you look like a guy who enjoys a good Cheeto,) and watch me steal the show on CHIKARA’s iPPVs.
Yes, you were kicked out of F.I.S.T., the group you helped form. Yes, I took your spot. Just get over it! Move on, Granpa. You’re like the clingy ex-girlfriend that creeps on your Facebook, and just can’t accept the fact that it’s over. Sure, you had a good run, had some good times, but F.I.S.T. just outgrew you, Akuma. You’re a 5 – 5 & 1/2 tops, and they dumped you for a perfect 10, my man. Look at yourself, and then look at me…can you blame them?
Man, for a “Mysterious, Mythological Warrior from Afar!” you sure are bitter…but, you know what? The fact that you managed to actually pin me in that 3-on-1 Handicap Match still has me a tad bit bitter. So you want me in Tampa? You got it. You say that you were the guy that made people initially fear F.I.S.T.? Well, I’m most certainly not afraid of you. You better clean that cheese off your fingers, pal, because you have no idea what’s in store for you in a few weeks, and what was that you said? Pretty boys rarely grow up to be tough guys? Aw, that’s adorable. I am a good looking boy, but on March 8th, this ravishing lad is going to show you why we kicked you out of F.I.S.T. in the first place.

Placing his title on the line after a heated situation with the Dead Wrestling Society, Johnny Gargano prepared to defend against Krimson on tonight’s iPPV. The PRIME Championship that Johnny had just recently regained seemingly was still in his hands as the night came to a close; a Superkick earning him the three fall to retain. HOWEVER, things were quick to change. Now wrapped in controversy, PRIME Wrestling’s new commissioner, Vic Travagliante, restarted the match to allow Krimson to gain the victory, making him the NEW champion!
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on any more information as time goes on.

PRIME Championship: “Whole Shebang” JOHNNY GARGANO vs. “M-Dogg 20” MATT CROSS
It’s a rematch of a Wrestlelution main event and one of the greatest rivalries in company history, and a match that is pivotal for both men for reasons that go beyond the PRIME Championship. Matt Cross looks to show the world, and especially the Megalomaniacs, the foundation in which PRIME Wrestling was build upon. The sacrifice, athleticism, and second to none work ethic of men like Gargano & Cross. For Johnny Gargano, it is a search for momentum at all costs. A week before a title defense against a man he’s never beaten, Krimson, with the potential future fate of PRIME Wrestling as a whole at stake in a match with Relaxed Rules and likely No Disqualifications, the reigning champion has a huge weight on his shoulders, though that’s not a new feeling. Gargano is actively looking forward to facing Cross, stating that the only way to prepare for a threat like Krimson is to test himself against his toughest opponent to date. It will be a test indeed, and likely a surefire classic, on free television a week before the iPPV! What will unfold in our last broadcast before we return to Pay-Per-View?
