– SINGLES MATCH –
SEM SEI DEF. ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
It’s never an easy task being in the ring with a man like Zero 2 who is notorious for trickery and taking shortcuts, but in the night’s opening contest Premier Academy standout, Sem Sei, earned yet another feather in his cap when he was able to overcome Zero 2’s tactics and pick up a victory, but Sem wasn’t the only one sick of Zero 2’s brand of competition. After repeatedly putting his hands on the referee, the ref finally had his fill and, instead of disqualifying Zero 2, actually picked him up and delivered a bodyslam which stunned Zero 2 enough for Sem to roll Zero 2 up with a schoolboy for the three count.

“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING DEF. ZERO 4 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After falling out of the World Title picture in recent weeks, former two time champion, Chase Gosling, has been steadily climbing back up the ranks of PPW and the next rung on the ladder was the debuting Zero 4. Impressively enough, Zero 4 controlled a sizable portion of the matchup, even nearly putting Chase to sleep with a sleeper hold, but the king of the Palace of Gosling wasn’t about to have his momentum slowed and, pulling a new weapon from his arsenal, flew through the air to deliver a top rope frog splash that decided the match. With another win under his belt, Chase continues his climb back to the top of the mountain in Premier Pro Wrestling.
– NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH –
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. ANAKIN BY WAY OF PIN FALL
It’s rare that someone with such a short time in the ring would find himself/herself in such a high stakes position, but that’s precisely where Anakin stood heading into his number one contenders match against Iniestra who vowed earlier in the week to squash the young upstart like a bug. Despite an impressive effort from Anakin, Iniestra delivered on his promise in the non-literal sense. As Anakin had Iniestra in a vulnerable spot, “El Mero Mero” was able to turn an Irish whip into what can only be described as a handstand springboard leaping cutter from the ropes, catching Anakin completely off guard and bringing Iniestra back into the title picture as the new number one contender.

SKYE BLUE DEF. “SHREDDING” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Sometimes, when faced with a stalemate, a change of strategy can tip the scales and that is exactly what Skye Blue tried when she faced Connor Corr. Instead of trying to wear Connor’s body down in the early going, Skye decided to wear on her opponent’s mind instead, initiating a playful game of “catch me if you can” which, for a time, did throw Connor off by increasing his frustration when he couldn’t catch her, but sooner or later the games must end and the competition must begin. Seizing on her opponent’s frustration, Skye brought the fight, but Connor soon brought it right back, but after testing the referee’s patience once too often, Connor grabbed hold of the top to avoid being rolled up with a sunset flip, but the ref kicked his hands off of the rope which gave the leverage back to Skye who completed the roll-up and picked up the victory when Connor couldn’t get his shoulders up. After chasing Skye back to the locker room, Connor came back to the ring and challenged Skye to a rematch in one week “if she’s man enough.”
– PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE (C) DEF. RONNY “VERONICA” METRO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Wasting no time in putting the hurt on his opponent, Matt Vine, like a heat seeking missile, brought the fight to Ronny Metro before the match could even get underway even nearly putting him through the wall of the Premier Studio. Once order was finally restored, the match that followed was no less brutal. With each man carrying an overflowing cauldron of hatred for the other, the match went from the mat, to the outside, and back to the mat, looking more like an all-out brawl than a technical wrestling exhibition. With Ronny in the driver’s seat, he attempted a double underhook maneuver on Matt, but Matt was able to block it, reverse it, and turn it into a backdrop which he instantly transformed into a pinning predicament. At the count of two, Ronny was able to get his foot on the bottom rope, but the referee was counting his shoulders down on the opposite side on his body and did not see Ronny’s foot, counting the three and awarding the match to Matt who continues his reign as the only three time champion in PPW history. However, due to the controversy over Ronny’s foot being on the rope, Ronny has now been entered into a number one contenders match against former Dirty Boy, Chase Gosling, this coming Saturday at PPW #175.
