– TAG TEAM MATCH –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE & JAMIE GARZA DEF. ZERO 1 & ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Seeking retribution for the mind games and sneaky tactics utilized in their singles matches at PPW #157, Matt Vine and Jamie Garza got their challenge for a tag team match against Zero 1 and Zero 2 granted. With both Zeroes involved in the match, the playing field seemed to be leveled out, but for a while the Zeroes were able to provide distractions for each other, tangling up the referee with their opponents and allowed for multiple double teams until Matt and Jamie were able to isolate the Zeroes from each other and it was then that Matt was able to hit a pendulum on Zero 1 for the win, but the Zeroes refused to let their opponents have the last word and assaulted Matt and Jamie from behind, even using the Japanese flag they had brought to ringside as a weapon. When the damage had been done and the Zeroes were satisfied, they returned to the locker room, but an infuriated Matt Vine took a microphone and issued a challenge for a rematch at PPW #159, this time with a 2-out-of-3 falls stipulation. With COO Randy Ricci’s blessing, the match has been signed and will take place this Saturday night in Woodstock!
– SINGLES MATCH –
“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. FIXIE CARTER BY WAY OF PIN FALL
SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE: SKYE BLUE
After being shelved with a three week suspension, Andy Anderson declared that he was embarking on a “vision quest.” Now back in the Premier Studio, many wondered where Andy’s mind would be when he stepped back into the ring to face Fixie Carter, making his in-ring debut. While Fixie surprised Andy with offense on several occasions, Andy’s far greater experience and ring savvy was too much for Fixie who found himself on the wrong end of a low blow from Andy while Andy had guest referee, Skye Blue, distracted in the corner. This allowed Andy to get the pin on Fixie and take a win on his first night back in PPW. After the match, a visibly upset Fixie confronted Skye in the ring, demanding an explanation for why she hadn’t disqualified Andy for the low blow, which had occurred out of her line of vision. Fixie’s temper got the best of him when Skye turned her back and he shoved her into the corner. This resulted in the two going face-to-face in the ring, but before the situation escalated even further, Randy Ricci intervened and got between Fixie and Skye. It was then that Fixie was given the opportunity to explain his actions. After he was done vocally placing the blame for his loss on Skye, Skye presented her case to Randy that in 2017 she, a woman, should be allowed to settle her issues with Fixie in the ring. While hesitant, Randy listened to the pleas of both Skye and the Premier Planet and gave Skye and Fixie their match at PPW #159!
– GRUDGE MATCH –
“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING VS. “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON RULED A NO CONTEST DUE TO A DOUBLE COUNT OUT
When thirty minutes couldn’t contain them at PPW #157, bitter rivals, Chase Gosling and Scott Colton, were granted a rematch to settle their time limit draw, this time with one hour at their disposal. At first, Chase was not keen on performing for the Premier Planet, whom he felt were being disrespectful toward him and left the ringside area in protest. Despite this, the referee called for the opening bell and the count began. Chase finally reemerged with barely enough time to get back in the ring before the referee reached a count of ten. Near fall after near fall left the Premier Planet on the edge of their seats as Scott’s agility battled Chase’s strength and the two fought until exhaustion overtook both. When both men spilled to the outside, neither could muster enough fuel to get back into the ring before the ten count, forcing the referee to rule the match a double count out.
– PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA VS. RONNY “VERONICA” METRO (C) ENDS IN CONTROVERSY. TITLE HELD UP.
Now proudly in possession of the 2017 Challenge Pro Cup that he claimed at PPW #157, Iniestra entered the main event to attempt to finally grab the brass ring that has eluded him for so long, the PPW World Heavyweight Championship. The current title holder, Ronny Metro, had an agenda of his own. Not only did he want to retain his title, he wanted payback for his loss to Iniestra in the tournament final. With a big moral victory over the champion just one week prior, Iniestra brimmed with confidence as he controlled a significant portion of the match, but Ronny would not be denied either and pushed the rules as far as he could to keep an advantage. The match took a controversial turn when the referee was caught between a proverbial hammer and anvil and was splashed in the corner, rendering him out of commission for a time. Mere seconds later, Andy Anderson emerged with a chain in hand. With the referee down, Andy held Iniestra back while Ronny wrapped the chain around his fist and swung for Iniestra’s head, but Iniestra was able to break away at the last possible moment, causing Ronny to hit Andy instead. As Ronny checked on Andy, Iniestra picked up the chain, wrapped it around his own fist, and knocked Ronny out. Iniestra covered the champion and the referee, still dazed but coherent, counted the 1-2-3. However, as Iniestra celebrated in the ring, the referee raised his hand, causing the chain to fall to the canvas out from beneath his arm. Upon seeing this, the referee took the title back from Iniestra, but refused to award it back to Ronny. With so much controversy surrounding the match’s conclusion, Premier COO Randy Ricci addressed the situation and acknowledged the referee’s decision to hold the title up as legitimate, but made the decision that, at #PPW159, there will be an elimination gauntlet for the title! Participants will be drawn at random. Two wrestlers will start the match. When one is eliminated, the wrestler who drew the next number down will enter to take his place. The match will go until there are only two wrestlers left and those two will compete for the PPW World Heavyweight Championship!
