Nate Colton is the oldest son of Jake Colton, a renowned technical wrestler whose career spanned the late 90s and 00s. He faced some of the biggest names in the industry, won several major titles, and even went on a few world-spanning tours. After his retirement ten years ago, he opened a wrestling school and started training the next generation--including members of his own family.
Nathan was an early graduate of the Colton Academy, on top of being a standout in amateur styles, both in high school and the University of Indiana. He has spent the last few years turning heads in smaller promotions in the Midwest. Now he's ready to make the next step, and test himself against the best.
He's a fresh face in PRIME with a well-known name. He knows that his family history will open doors, but he also struggles against the weight of expectations. Nate is more than ready to prove to himself, his family, and the world that he deserves to carry on the Colton legacy.

A classic rock riff signals the beginning of "Tryin'" by the Eagles, and moments later Nate Colton emerges from the curtain. He holds his arms up high, showing off his blue satin jacket--his family name emblazoned on the back; his first name stitched on the front.
Nate walks quickly to the ring, making sure to high five any fans who reach toward him. He climbs the steps, ducks between the top and middle ropes, and enters the ring. He heads directly to his corner and undoes his jacket, showing off his gear--white trunks that reach his upper thigh with a blue stripe down the side, white boots with blue trim, white MMA gloves, and blue elbow and knee pads. After handing his jacket to a ring attendant, he makes another appeal to the fans, then stretches in the corner while he mentally prepares for his opponent.
