We’re taken into the MGM Grand Garden Arena where another sold-out crowd is rowdy and ready for action. The camera does its usual pan-around to capture some signs.

Hey, that was fun, wasn’t it? For even more fun and frivolity, let’s take it over to Nick and Richard at the commentation station!
Nick Stuart: Hello again PRIMEates and WELCOME to ReVival 15…the UltraViolence go-home show!
Richard Parker: That’s ULTRONVIOLENCE.
Nick Stuart: No it isn’t. We’ve got a stacked card here tonight so let’s get right to it!
Garrett Biggs’ “Mama Didn’t Raise No…” plays over the sound system and on the video screen, a video plays showing a series of wrestling trophies on a dresser next to an old high school football uniform that has ‘Ellis’ on the back.
An acoustic guitar plays and the vocals begin.
“Mama didn’t raise no… quitter- guaranteed to get the job done.”
Adam Ellis and Ginny Van Lear walk out from the back hand in hand and stand on the stage.
“She didn’t raise no SOB who that can’t back himself up – been known to throw a good punch.”
The PRIME*View shows series of action shots of Ellis from his various matches
“And this ol’ boy gets going when the going gets tough- sundown to sun up.”
Dressed in a t-shirt, jeans, and her feet wrapped in tape the former MMA prodigy nods her head causing her bright red hair to flip and raises her left hand…
“Need a man with a helping hand – he’s always got one to lend.”
…and then brings it down as the chorus and full instrumentation hits- complete with pyro.
“Oh, I might be a little rough around the edges”
Adam’s wearing a pair of plain blue wrestling shorts. He starts forward across the desert ground towards the ring followed by Van Lear.
“From the outside lookin’ in it might seem helpless.”
The couple reaches the ring. Adam holds the rope open so Ginny can slide through.
“I’ve been blessed with a strong back bone – I never coulda made it on my own”
Adam joins her in the ring.
“But if there’s one thing that I know – Momma didn’t raise no…”
Adam climbs up the top turnbuckle and holds up his arms.
The opening riff to New Found Glory’s cover of “This is Me” blasts throughout the arena.
I am not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, “they say
‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts
I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one’ll love you as you are
But I won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious
As the chorus begins, Ria Lockhart slowly walks out. A pink and light blue jacket adorns her frame and a pair of pink mirrored wraparound sunglasses sit on her face. She remains motionless, stoic, for a moment. That changes in an instant as a wide grin breaks out on her face. Back and forth she goes on the top of the ramp, firing up the crowd.
Ria confidently strides down towards the ring, slapping hands and casually chatting with fans. Once ringside, she quickly traverses the stairs. Standing on the apron, she pulls off her shades, gazing around the audience. She flings the glasses into the crowd, again, a big smile on her face.
Lockhart grabs the top rope. She gives a small hop, bouncing off the bottom rope. She uses that momentum to flip up and over the top, landing on her feet in the ring. Almost as soon as she does, Ria bolts for a corner. She climbs it hurriedly, resting with one foot on the middle rope and one on the top rope. She flings her arms into the air to again get the crowd going. She hops down after a pause and backs towards the same corner, pulling her jacket off.
Vince Howard: This opening contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Warrensburg, Missouri….weighing in at 226 pounds…ADAM ELLIS!
Vince Howard: And his opponent, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…weighing in at 155 pounds…”RAINBOW ROCK” RIA LOCKHART!
Ashley Barlow checks with both competitors before calling for the bell!
The bell sounds as Lockheart and Ellis begin to circle one another, each carefully looking for an opening.
Nick Stuart: We’re seeing a totally different Ria here right off the bat, folks. Normally, she’d come out swinging, but right now she’s taking a more cautious pace.
Richard Parker: That’s because we’re seeing Lockhart, not Nightshade.
The two step in to tie up, but Ria ducks under and picks Adam’s ankle. She hops forward and snags a headlock, cranking down as she does!
Ellis reaches up to pry Ria’s arm loose, turning in and coming up with a hammerlock, pressing Lockhart’s body into the canvas, but Ria gets her knees under her and turns back in before rolling through.
Adam loses his grip and both competitors pop to their feet in a stalemate to a chorus of cheers from the crowd!
Nick Stuart: Sound, fundamental wrestling there from both competitors. This one looks to be good!
Richard Parker: Give it time, Nick. One of these two is gonna throw a punch sooner or later.
The two circle again before stepping in. This time, Ellis fakes the tie up and shoots in, taking Ria down with a quick drop toehold. As soon as Ria hits the canvas, she rolls forward and pops to her feet.
But Adam follows through and SNATCHES her around the waist, bringing her up and over with a big German suplex! Ellis bridges!
Nick Stuart: Oh! An early near fall here by the newcomer to PRIME!
Richard Parker: It was a nice move, but it’s way too early. You’re not gonna get Ria Lockhart this early.
Adam doesn’t waste any time, he brings Lockhart to her feet and plants a boot to her midsection before hooking her head and WHIPPING her up and over with a snap suplex! Ellis floats over!
Ria kicks out with authority and Ellis immediately brings her back up for another suplex attempt, BUT RIA counters! The Rainbow Rock hooks Adam’s leg and rolls through!
Nick Stuart: LGBTQLUTCH! Ria’s gonna steal one!
Ellis kicks out before three and shoves himself away before pulling himself to his feet. But, Ria is right there! Lockhart fires two snapping kicks into Adam’s midsection before stepping in close and hooking him, bringing Ellis up and over with an exploder suplex!
Richard Parker: Here she comes, Nick. Ria’s getting into a rhythm. And that spells trouble with a capital Ria for Adam Ellis!
Lockhart comes back to her feet, measuring Ellis as he pulls himself up by the ropes. Ria charges in, but Ellis is ready!
Nick Stuart: Oh my! Did you see that impact!?
Ellis LAUNCHES forward and snaps an absolutely filthy super kick that connects with Ria’s jaw. Ria drops to the canvas as Adam shakes out any remaining cobwebs. He moves forward and drags Ria up by the hair.
Richard Parker: See, he should have covered her right there!
Ria knocks Adam’s hands away and grabs his head before sitting out with a nasty jawbreaker. Ellis staggers backward and Lockhart charges in, ducking under and hooking a full nelson.
Nick Stuart: SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Ria covers!
Ellis gets his shoulder up and Ria doesn’t even hesitate. She brings Adam to his feet and Irish whips him to the corner. Rainbow Rock charges in, executing a back handspring before delivering a back elbow to the corner.
She steps out of the corner before immediately turning back and connecting with a big roundhouse kick. Ria pulls Ellis out of the corner and hooks Ellis for a uranage, but Ellis fires a series of elbows to Ria’s head. She breaks the hold and Ellis ducks under again, grabbing hold of Ria’s waist and bribing her over for another German Suplex!
Nick Stuart: Ria lands on her feet! That takes tremendous balance!
Richard Parker: But can she capitalize?
Lockhart charges forward and SNATCHES Ellis by the head, snapping him down with a reverse DDT! Ria comes to her feet as the crowd cheers. She looks around at the PRIMEmates before pointing to the top rope!
Richard Parker: Don’t pander to these people, Lockhart! If you’re gonna do it, then do it!
Nick Stuart: I have to agree there. You never want to waste time.
Ria moves to the turnbuckle, stomping on Ellis on her way there. She positions herself in front of the buckles.
Nick Stuart: Looks like we’re gonna see that triple jump moonsault she calls the Hartbreaker.
Ria springboards twice and soars through the air as cameras flash in the crowd, BUT ELLIS GETS HIS KNEES UP!
Richard Parker: See? I told you! She wasted too much time!
Ria crashes and burns, rolling over and clutching her midsection. Ellis stumbles to his feet, snatching Ria by the legs. He elevates her up onto her shoulder and begins to turn, but Ria fights!
Nick Stuart: Ellis is going for that Elevated Boston Crab! But look at Ria fight it!
Lockhart scratches and claws, but Ellis is just too strong and manages to turn her over and cranks back!
Nick Stuart: He’s got that hook in good! Can Ria reach the ropes!?
Ria is fighting with all her might, but Ellis has the hold cinched in too deep. She has no choice but to tap!
DING DING DING
Vince Howard: The winner of this match…ADAM ELLIS!
Nick Stuart: An impressive victory for Adam Ellis in his debut match. Ria gave it all she had but Adam was a little bit stronger and a little bit better tonight. We’re going to take a quick break here…don’t go anywhere!
