In an effort to undo the damage to his reputation over recent months, Nate Colton spent most of UltraViolence Night One making public and private apologies to assorted members of PRIME roster and staff. This culminated in a closed-door meeting in the locker room. While we don’t have many details, we understand that Colton explained his motivations for inviting Savannah Scandal to ReV32.
It is said that most, but not all, of those in attendance have accepted his apology.
Colton also issued a statement over the weekend, expressing his regret over his part in the salacious rumors that came from that show, as well as addressing the veracity of said rumors. He specifically mentioned, and debunked, the rumors surrounding Adam Ellis and Ginny Van Lear, Justine Calvin, Angelica Brooks, and in the following excerpt, Ashley Barlow:
“Miss Barlow has always been a consummate professional, and I have never known her to be anything but completely fair and unbiased. The idea that she would play favorites for any reason is ridiculous. She is a respected colleague, and should be treated as such.”
Nate Colton also made a point of apologizing directly to Ashley Barlow at Night One, which necessitated another closed-door meeting that involved the PRIME referees as well as the staff member known only as Doug. Colton was said to be in “rough shape” following the encounter, but all parties seem to have resolved their differences.
In additional news on Colton, he left Chicago after checking in on The Anglo Luchador in the hospital, then headed to Indianapolis for MVW’s Heartland event, where his sister Jennifer was in competition.
