Get your News and Notes from ReVival 02 right heeaaaaahhhhhh!
- Both Wade Elliot and Dametreyus are being questioned about the mysterious appearance of a rogue journalist during the broadcast. Going by the name “Lex Maroon,” the oddly familiar reporter struck up an interview with Almasy Invitational Sweet 16 participant, Teddy Palmer. Security was quick to the scene, but the trench-coated vagrant fled the area. Efforts to locate this individual yielded little.
Threats of tighter restrictions around the entrance are being considered.
- Both MGM Grand and PRIME officials are said to be less-than-pleased at Teddy Palmer’s Almasy Invitational “promotional event” this past week, which saw the affable Canadian causing a small fire inside The Whiskey Down while hyping his tournament match against Eryk Van Warren. Melvin Beauregard notably had to be calmed down after assessing the damage, as the MGM Grand Liaison looked to be on the verge of a panic attack. No fines have been issued against Palmer, although to say he is skating on very thin ice would be an understatement.
- Sources backstage say that after the show went off the air, Jacob Mephisto was escorted from the building after waiting behind the curtain with a steel chair for Nova. He was stopped immediately by the security team. On his way out, Mephisto was heard saying that this would become a family matter.
- During the commotion of Jacob Mephisto being ejected from the arena, several sources are confirming that Solomon Richards was seen asking security team members and PRIME Officials if his assistance was needed in removing Jacob Mephisto. It is also being said that Solomon remained behind to ensure that Mephisto did not attempt to re enter the building, although it is possible that Solomon merely was waiting for the crowd to disperse to return to his hotel room.
- Post-show, John Kennedy Royko Jr. was seen leaving the arena in a walking boot.
- Cyrus O’Haire was dazed and confused following his match with Ria Nightshade. He initially refused medical attention and, when pressed by PRIME Medical Staff to be checked out for a concussion, got physical with a junior trainer and pushed him into a stack of loading crates. O’Haire has been fined $10,000 for his actions, the money once again going to a local Las Vegas mental health facility. The trainer is said to be OK following the confrontation.
- Following what some would arguably call the Match of the Night, PRIME has announced that “Beautiful” Bobby Dean has earned himself an all expenses paid vacation to the Wicked Spoon, the best buffet on the Las Vegas strip. It is doubtful that he will be seen for the next couple of weeks.
When questioned about the above blurb, Lindsay Troy rolled her eyes and said Bobby was told about the Wicked Spoon while looking for nearby buffets and that PRIME was not picking up his tab.
- When asked if he was aware that Dan Ryan was backstage at ReVival 02, Cancer Jiles had this to say: “Never heard of him.”
- Also in attendance was SHOOT Project President “Real Deal” Josh Johnson and Missouri Valley Wrestling President Ray McAvay, who took in the show from a skybox alongside Lindsay Troy. Michael Oliver Best from High Octane Wrestling was also invited to the show, but due to his travel schedule and other commitments was unable to attend.
- Upon leaving the MGM, the Puddings’ were seen in low spirits as Tapioca carried both his and Muriel’s bags as well as several aluminum tins stacked 12-high left over from catering. “Yeah I’m upset,” Muriel remarked to our staff. “He lost, Teddy won, and I accidentally peed in my shorts before I hit Jiles with that butt splash. But the Spud Princess always sees a silver lining, baes. Word is I sold like seven shirts tonight!”
“Is this going on the website?” She then asked, to which we responded yes. “Awesome. Hey, Blueberry, hook a sister up with some of them titty pants. I need to make sure what happened tonight doesn’t happen again.”
- There is now a link under the merchandise section of PRIME’s website that links to fightingfornora.com, where the only items available at this time are beer coozies and stickers. All proceeds go to the Fighting For Nora Foundation.
- Timo Bolamba, Elvis Nixon, Ashley Barlow, and Jimmy Turnbull have each matched a donation of $100 to the Fighting for Nora foundation. Timo originally offered his share in Bolamba Bucks, but since Coinbase refuses to support the currency, the Foundation was forced to request standard U.S. dollars. Timo has publicly admonished Elon Musk via Jabber for not acknowledging the crypto.
- Brandon Youngblood was in attendance at ReVival 02 but did not make an appearance on the show. When asked about his upcoming match up with Miles Lucky on ReVival 03, he was mum on the topic, only stating that he was deep in study of his opponent. When asked about the comments made from the camp of Vicki and Jonathan-Christoper Hall, he was quick to put their words to bed, making mention that he had to block Vicki on all forms of social media as her behavior was “erratic.”
- French chip company Brets announced via press release a 1279% spike in Google search trends in America following ReVival 02 and is considering expanding its international operation. Early rumors speculate a sponsorship for PRIME wrestler FLAMBERGE, though no deal has yet been announced.
- Witnesses report Impulse being accosted by an apparent Rezin fan, accusing the veteran grappler of ‘not being Punk Rock’ enough. He attempted to avoid potential bad publicity by simply walking away, but another fan – evidently on his side – confronted the Rezin fan. The police were called but no arrests were made as things never descended into violence. When asked about this matter, Calico Rose described the vibe as ‘Very West Side Story.’
- After being forcibly thrown from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Rezin was reportedly seen wandering the strip, asking several pedestrians if they could point him in the direction of a time machine so that he could “finish this where it began”. When this proved to be fruitless, he approached one random person and offered him a jelly donut to pretend to be his fan and go tell Impulse he isn’t PUNK ROCK. When the donut was rejected for being covered in chili and mac-and-cheese, Rezin instead threatened to bury him somewhere out in the desert if he wouldn’t accept his dessert. The random “fan” allegedly went along with the plan because “I just want that asshole to leave me alone.”
- Catching up with Mr. Pfefferman after his match, he pointed at his temple and said that’s why he is the smartest in the game, he has every strategy, every contingency mapped out. If Larry Tract couldn’t see what was coming, that was his problem. He then stormed away, mentioning that he didn’t have access to the locker room.
- PRIME has learned that Roger Dawes, a shift supervisor in the facilities department at the MGM Grand, has filed an official grievance with the resort against King Blueberry (Jared Sykes).
“Twice now he’s managed to get into our storage,” Dawes told a PRIME representative. “First he got into one of our rooms and messed everything up, then we find out he stole a two-wheeler and some bungee cords. The boys tell me that we’ve also got the lower half of a Thanksgiving turkey costume missing, plus some of the old Christmas decorations. Apparently some thirty-odd feather boas are unaccounted for, and Jerry said he can’t find the keys to a forklift.”
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
- The Anglo Luchador has been harshly admonished by Melvin Beauregard for ruining both bedsheets in his hotel room. No word on whether IcyHot was involved.
- Kenny Freeman posted on social media after ReVival 02, giving high praise to the competitors and staff for “an amazing second show that really showed the world what PRIME is all about!”
In other news, an investigation has been launched to find out who the hell Kenny Freeman is.
- After being cornered by ACE Network reporters, Anna Daniels sighed and gave her assessment on the match that propelled her to the next round of the Almasy Invitational.
“It’s funny. Nathan Filmix has allegedly been training for this moment for literally his entire life but he still has way too much to learn.”
When pressed to elaborate, she continued.
“It’s one thing to be in some hidden away bunker where Lieutenant Dan can bark orders and you automatically do it like some robot and you’re treated like you’re something that matters. It’s another to be in the moment against an opponent willing to pop your head off of your body with her legs. He may not realize this yet, but our match is just the beginning of a rude awakening. Reality will not jive with the simulation he’s currently living in and when that sinks in, he’ll either force himself to adapt or he’ll crack. As of right now, our money is on him cracking HARD.”
Other topics were also brought up like the minor controversy of her attacking Filmix with a forearm a split second after the bell rang (“Dick Parker can cry harder for all we care.”), her next opponent Nicolas Pfefferman (“Jury’s still out on him.”), and the rest of the contenders as a whole (“Not worrying about them until we get to them.”). More could’ve been said were it not for some rumblings of a madman looking for a time machine prompting the Muse to say, and I quote, “oh, fuck that shit!” and proceed to storm into the glass box she has been living in to promote the Invitational. The glass box seemed to…disappear?
