The screen fades in from black to a wild and rowdy crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Signs are a-plenty, the PRIMEates are cheering and ready for action, and the camera zips over to two familiar faces sitting at the commentation station at ringside.
Nick Stuart: Ladies and gentlemen…guys, gals, and non-binary pals….WELCOME…TO THE REVIVAL!!! I am Nick Stuart and it is my ESTEEMED HONOR to be back with you here tonight as PRIME returns to professional wrestling. Alongside me, as always…love him or hate him…is Richard Parker, and Richard, I’ve gotta say…it’s good to see you, buddy.
Richard Parker: Well, Nick, I’d say it’s good to see you too, but…
He pauses, takes a drink of his water, and contemplates his next words carefully.
Nick Stuart: It’s OK to say it’s good to see me too, Rich. I know you’ve missed me.
Richard Parker: Have I, though?
Nick pats Richard on the shoulder, smiles, and presses on.
Nick Stuart: We are kicking off the Almasy Invitational tonight with the Tony Rolo Bracket. As many of you know, we unexpectedly lost one of our own, Seymour Almasy, in 2018, and this tournament is named in his honor. The prize at the end of it? The Universal Championship. We have eight exciting matchups tonight and we don’t want to keep you waiting any longer. Let’s get right to it!
