Full match results from December 23, 2017 #PPW175 taping at Premier Pro Wrestling studios in Woodstock, IL and Post Show Wrap Up with Justin Barlow.
– NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH –
RONNY “VERONICA” METRO VS. “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
Hotter than your Christmas cocoa is the hatred that exists between former partners, Ronny Metro and Chase Gosling. Throw an opportunity at a World Heavyweight Championship match into the mix and the bad blood reaches its boiling point. What resulted was a war of attrition between two former champions, both trying to get back to the top of the mountain in PPW and a match that was a treat to behold for all those in attendance, but that treat was soon spoiled when, as Chase had Ronny covered after delivering a big frog splash from the top rope, Andy Anderson charged the ring and attacked Chase, forcing the referee to call for the bell and throw the match out. Hot on Andy’s heels, however, was PPW Champion, Matt Vine, who chased the Dirty Boys out of the ring and sent them running for the hills. Having seen what transpired from the locker room, Premier COO, Randy Ricci, verbally signed a tag team match pitting The Dirty Boys Club against Matt and Chase.
– TAG TEAM MATCH (WINNER BECOMES NUMBER ONE CONTENDER TO THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP) –
THE DIRTY BOYS CLUB DEF. “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING & PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
The bell rang, but where oh where had the Dirty Boys gone? The referee began the ten count and it seemed as if Andy and Ronny might rather take a count out loss than be forced to tangle with Matt and Chase, but at the count of nine, Andy was able to slide into the ring to break the count, but quickly slid back out to regroup with Ronny on the outside. With a shot at the championship to whomever picked up the victory on the line — a stipulation added to the match due to there being no legitimate winner in the prior contest — however, a count out would not suffice for the Dirty Boys. As one would expect from two teams with an overflow of bad blood between them, the match became chaotic and, in the heat of the battle, Ronny found himself with an opening. With Vine on the mat, Ronny ascended the top turnbuckle and delivered a thunderous splash to to champion which gave him the pin AND the right to be called the new number one contender.
– SINGLES MATCH –
SEM SEI VS. ANAKIN RULED A DOUBLE COUNT OUT
In an exhibition from the Premier Academy, top training standouts, Anakin and Sem Sei, put on an exciting showcase of their respective skills. Anakin showed his skills with his ever increasing agility while Sem has been becoming a formidable mat technician. Two competing styles and and equal amount of heart made the match a sight to behold and demonstrated why the two young lions have been deemed by many to be the future of PPW. However, in a clash of dual offense, the two collided and fell out of the ring, leading to a double count out when neither could answer the referee’s ten count. Premier COO, Randy Ricci, was so impressed with the match that he signed a rematch for PPW #176 on the spot and Sem and Anakin will have another chance to prove who is the better man at the final studio taping of 2017.
– SINGLES MATCH –
SKYE BLUE DEF. “SHREDDING” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After treating the Premier Planet to his rendition of some holiday classics, Connor Corr sought to avenge his loss to Skye Blue the week prior, but Skye wasn’t in a giving mood and put on an impressive display against her rival, culminating in a diving crossbody from the turnbuckle that stunned Connor long enough to bring Skye her second win in as many weeks. Connor, furious over the loss, attacked Skye after the match, but was sent packing by the arrival of Sem Sei and Anakin who helped Skye to her feet and gave her the opportunity to bask in her victory.
– PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE (C) DEF. “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Finally back in position to potentially become PPW Champion once again, Iniestra was determined to prove to everyone (particularly the “racists” within PPW) why he deserves to wear the gold. With 2017 nearing its close, however, Matt Vine was equally, if not more determined to enter 2018 with his unmatched third reign as PPW Champion in tact. Despite Iniestra’s furious offense and many near falls that put Matt’s title in serious jeopardy, Matt was able to deliver a ferocious Vine-buster to his opponent, adding one more week to his reign and sending Iniestra back down the PPW ladder, but the final hurdle in Matt’s path to 2018 is none other than his longtime rival and the man who pinned him in the middle of the ring earlier in the night, Ronny Metro whom he will face this coming Saturday night. Will Matt carry the title into the new year or will 2018 be the year of the snake?
