5 memorable matches of The Prime Time Players
#5 The Prime Time Players vs. 'Showtime' Percy Watson & Alex Riley [WWE NXT, 2012]
Current WWE commentator Percy Watson was once an active professional wrestler and he competed on the fifth season of WWE NXT named NXT Redemption. Initially, Titus O'Neil and Percy Watson were good friends with each other and Darren Young had a heated rivalry with O'Neil.
After O'Neil lost to Young in a decisive No Disqualification match on an episode of NXT, The Real Deal lost his cool and berated the WWE Universe and turned his back on his mentor, Hornswoggle thus turning heel in the process. When he urged his friend Watson to turn his back on the fans and join him, the 'Showtime' refused which led to a feud between the two.
In an interesting turn of events, O'Neil ended up allying with his once nemesis Darren Young in what was the inception of The Prime Time Players. The team of O'Neil and Young faced Watson and Alex Riley in which Young picked up the victory for his team by pinning Watson after O'Neil caused a distraction. After the match, O'Neil insulted Watson and the fans.
After this, The Prime Time Players made their way to the main roster and continued with their winning streak for a short time.Published 02 Dec 2019, 19:15 IST
