WWE WrestleMania is prime time play for Prime Time Players


Going into the WrestleMania 29 weekend, The Prime Time Players (Titus O’Neil and Darren Young) might not be on the main card, but they are pumped to meet fans with the launch of their first T-shirt.

“They are pretty good looking shirts if we must say so ourselves,” said O’Neil on an interview with The Roman Show.

The shirts are on sale at www.wwe.com.

The Prime Time Players were present at WWE NXT Live Tour’s annual visit to the Miami-Dade County Fair. There, they battled Jake Carter and Garrett Dylan with Sylvester Lefort.

The Prime Time Players were humbled to return to their old stumping grounds.

“It’s always good to come back to NXT, where we all started,” Young said. “It’s about giving back. Whether it’s in front of 50, 100, 5,000 people, it’s always a great experience to perform in front of our fans.”

Both greeted fans at the NXT show. They are looking forward to doing the same during the WrestleMania festivities this weekend.

WWE WrestleMania 29 is Sunday, April 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

“Metlife Stadium is 20 minutes from where I grew up,” Young said. “For the Prime Time Players to be a part of WrestleMania, it’s going to be off the hook.”

O’Neil also reminisced about some of the challenges he faced at NXT before making it to the main roster.

“Biggest challenge is trying to figure out what our characters were going to be as a performer, who we wanted to be as an individual and our goals,” he said.

WWE NXT, the developmental group for WWE, features future WWE superstars and divas. O’Neil and Young are alums.
