– TAG TEAM MATCH –
THE DIRTY BOYS CLUB (RONNY “VERONICA” METRO & “IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON) DEF. SEM SEI & ANAKIN BY WAY OF PIN FALL
The evening opened with a clash of opposites when straight shooting Premier Academy standouts Sem Sei and Anakin took on the devious and far more experienced Dirty Boys Club. Despite an overflow of confidence, the Dirty Boys were in for a surprise when Anakin and Sem put a clinic on them in the early moments of the match, forcing them to regroup. Seeing just how much they underestimated the competition, Andy and Ronny decided it was time to resort to alternative measures and again began living up to their moniker by employing trickery and underhanded tactics to regain the advantage. Eventually, the referee seemed to lose control of the match as all four wrestlers entered the ring, leading to a double pinning situation with Sem rolling up Ronny and Andy rolling up Anakin. Despite the chaos, the referee had kept his eye on the ball and, because Andy and Anakin were the legal men, the match was awarded to the Dirty Boys Club by way of pin fall despite a valiant effort from the two standouts.

“SHREDDING” CONNOR CORR DEF. SKYE BLUE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After airing his grievances over the outcome of his match at PPW #173, Connor Corr was granted a rematch against Skye Blue. Connor seemed to engage Skye with vicious intentions, routinely taking any open opportunity to put the boots to her in an effort to perhaps not only beat her, but injure her as well. Angry that Skye had not been reprimanded for her actions during their match the week prior, Connor decided that turnabout was fair play and, as Skye attempted to perform a sunset flip over the top rope, Connor sat across her chest and used the ropes to his advantage, picking up the victory and the bragging rights.
– NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH –
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA VS. ANAKIN ENDS IN A DOUBLE DISQUALIFICATION
Despite a losing effort in the opening contest, Anakin had bigger fish to fry as he reentered the ring for what would be the biggest match of his young career thus far with an opportunity at the PPW World Heavyweight Championship at stake. His opponent, however, was the equally determined former champion, Iniestra. Convinced that PPW has been holding him back because of his Latino heritage, Iniestra felt he had extra to prove in this one, meaning he would be an even more dangerous competitor to deal with. Taking advantage of his already worn opponent, Iniestra controlled a significant portion of the matchup, but Anakin put the heart and determination that had brought him to the match in the first place on full display as he, time and time again, thwarted Iniestra’s attempts at a victory. Unfortunately, when a competition gets heated, the fog of war can disrupt an athlete’s focus and, after already being warned twice about adhering to the referee’s five count, the third time pushed the ref’s patience over its limit and both wrestlers were disqualified, bringing the match to a no contest conclusion. This enraged Iniestra who took out his frustrations on Anakin with a sneak attack from behind, leaving him laying face down in the middle of the ring. However, as Anakin started toward the locker room, thanks to an assist from Sem Sei, Premier COO, Randy Ricci, announced that, next Saturday, there will be a rematch with the number one contendership on the line.
– SINGLES MATCH –
“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING DEF. SEM SEI BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Like his tag team partner in the opening contest, Premier Academy standout, Sem Sei, was given the chance to prove himself in singles competition, but he would have a daunting task ahead of him as his opponent was former two time PPW World Heavyweight Champion, Chase Gosling. Despite Chase’s edge in size and experience, Sem put him on the defensive with a barrage of impressive offense that left the former champion reeling, even coming close to losing the match via submission when Sem nearly put him out with a sleeper hold. However, one high risk attempt proved to be Sem’s undoing when Chase was able to catch him in midair and turn the would be offense into a powerbomb, sealing Sem’s fate and bringing the “W” home to Chase who showed humility in victory by helping Sem to his feet and acknowledging him in front of the Premier Planet after the match.
– PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE (C) DEF. RONNY “VERONICA” METRO BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
The night’s main event kicked off even before the announcements of champion and challenger could be made when Ronny Metro initiated a sneak attack on the champion, Matt Vine. The two battled in and out of the ring with no official call from the referee to begin the match until order was restored. Once the bell finally rang, the two went to war for over half an hour, neither giving an inch up to the other. Seeing his partner in jeopardy at the hands of the champ, Andy Anderson came to ringside to collect Ronny, appearing to be willing to take a count out over further punishment, but Chase Gosling put a roadblock in the Dirty Boys’ way, preventing them from exiting the ringside area, but once Chase had made his exit Andy became the X factor in the match. With Ronny on the apron, Matt attempted to suplex his opponent into the ring, but as he had Ronny in the air, Andy grabbed Matt’s foot, causing Matt to lose his balance and, with Ronny now across Matt’s shoulders, Andy continued to hold Matt’s foot until the referee reached the three count, but as the Dirty Boys celebrated, the announcement was made that the winner of the match and STILL PPW World Heavyweight Champion was Matt Vine. This angered the Dirty Boys who began assaulting Matt until Chase ran back in for the save, laying Ronny and Andy out with running knees and saving Matt from more severe damage.
