NON-TITLE SINGLES MATCH –
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION CHASE GOSLING DEF. “U.S.A.” ULYSSES S. ADAMS VIA PIN FALL
With the number one contendership still being contested, Chase Gosling got a bit of a reprieve as he would not be forced into putting his title on the line at PPW 100. However, that didn’t mean that Chase was in for an easy night, because his opponent was the undefeated red, white, and blue clad “U.S.A.” Ulysses S. Adams. Despite the gold not being on the line, both had plenty to lose in this one. Adams, being undefeated in PPW, had a winning streak to defend while Gosling, on a roll since winning the title from Scott Colton, needed to keep his own momentum going. Being practically even in size and power, the two unleashed a plethora of hard-hitting knocks and power moves in an attempt to put the other down. Impressively, Adams seemed to have the champ scouted and nearly every turn, but it seemed that the one thing he failed to take into account was Gosling’s growing expertise at utilizing mind games and his willingness to throw out the rule book if it meant gaining a victory. With Adams covered, Gosling took full advantage of being near the ropes and, with the referee’s eyes on Adams’ shoulders, placed his feet on the ropes for added leverage. Thanks to this, Gosling was able to keep Adams down long enough for a count of three, continuing his momentum while ruining Adams’ undefeated streak in the end.
SINGLES MATCH –
“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. RONNY METRO VIA PIN FALL
Revenge is one of the most powerful motivators in all of human nature and no one seems to know that better than “Irish” Andy Anderson. After being shelved thanks to two separate beatdowns at the hands of Ronny Metro, Andy would finally get his hands on his bitter rival at PPW 100. This was not so much a wrestling match as it was a brawl and Andy chased Metro out of the ring on several occasions where Metro tried to regroup, but could shake the Premier Planet who, as they have done in the past, seemed to crawl right underneath his skin. Andy took full advantage of Metro’s lack of focus and, despite being on the receiving end of punishment more than a handful of times, managed to get Metro into the ropes where Andy showcased an impressive display of agility as he floated over Metro with a sunset flip and rolled him into a pinning predicament that Metro couldn’t escape from. The referee counted to three and Andy gained a measure of the retribution he has been after for the last month.
SINGLES MATCH –
“THE PERSIAN POWERHOUSE” MILAD AKBAR DEF. “TEXAS” PETE VIA SUBMISSION
Yes, you read that correctly. Former PPW World Heavyweight Champion and current NXT prospect Milad Akbar is back! After being out of action for the better part of a year with several nagging injuries, “The Persian Powerhouse” returned to the Premier Studio at PPW 100 and his first test of “ring rust” was the eccentric PPW veteran “Texas” Pete. Amazingly, Akbar seems to have not lost a single step during his absence. With the ferocity that helped him carry the world title for nearly two years, Akbar made a profound statement at PPW 100 when he not only forced “Texas” Pete to tap out the the camel clutch, but refused to break the hold even after the bell had been sounded and he had been declared the winner. While the Premier Planet made it know that they did not appreciate Akbar’s unsportsmanlike display, one thing is for sure. Akbar is back with a vengeance and will certainly have his sights set on regaining the PPW World Heavyweight Championship.
– RONNY METRO ASSAULTS PPW CEO RANDY RICCI –
Professional wrestling is not an easy business, so making it to one hundred tapings is a rather big deal and the roster and staff of PPW thought it only appropriate to honor the man whose vision set PPW in motion, Randy Ricci. After receiving a plaque to commemorate the achievement, Randy recollected the hard work, perseverance, and indomitable spirt that brought PPW to taping 100, but as the old saying goes, “Speak of the Devil and he shall appear.” Upon mentioning the name of Ronny Metro, Metro initiated a sneak attack on the CEO, putting boots and fists to him and using Randy’s commemorative plaque as a weapon! When Andy Anderson arrived, it appeared as if a stop might be put to the situation, but Metro got the jump on Andy, beating him down and handcuffing him to the bottom rope. With Andy forced to watch on helplessly, Metro picked Randy up and delivered a piledriver to the CEO before taking a bow and retiring to the locker room. Andy was finally able to free himself from his restraints, but unfortunately he was too late in saving his friend and mentor. Rest assured, dire consequences await Ronny Metro in the near future.
#1 CONTENDERSHIP TRIPLE THREAT MATCH –
INIESTRA DEF. “THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE & “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON VIA PIN FALL
With three very hungry competitors vying for a shot at the PPW World Heavyweight Championship, the stage was set for an awe inspiring clash between three of the Premier Academy’s top standouts — Iniestra, Matt Vine, and the former champ Scott Colton. After battling each other in a series of remarkable singles matches over recent weeks, fans eagerly anticipated a three way contest and the three competitors delivered the goods. Wanting to steal the show, risk seemed to leave the mind and the three stopped at nothing to win. Chants of, “This is awesome!” rang throughout the studio as the three battled to utter exhaustion, knowing what was at stake. With all three running on fumes, Scott Colton and Matt Vine showed a rare moment of cooperation when they perched Iniestra up on the top turnbuckle and brought him down to the mat with a devastating double team suplex, but incredibly Iniestra turned the tables on his opponents and capitalized on the situation, wrapping both Colton’s and Vine’s legs upon impact and, in doing so, gaining the 1, 2, 3, becoming the new #1 contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship! Knowing the caliber of match they had just delivered and despite the disappointing turn of events for Vine and Colton, the three embraced one another in the middle of the ring in a very honorable display of sportsmanship.
