Full match results from February 24, 2018 #PPW184 taping at Premier Pro Wrestling studios in Woodstock, IL and Post Show Wrap Up with Justin Barlow.
SINGLES MATCH –
ANAKIN DEF. ZERO 1 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With the big four corners match for the number one contendership looming heavy in the air, two of the participants were granted warm-up matches before the big clash was to go down. The first competitor was the seventeen year old sensation from the Premier Academy, Anakin, who went toe-to-toe with PPW veteran, Zero 1, who has spent some time away from PPW, but still had the advantage in experience nonetheless. Both were well matched in speed and agility, but in the end it was Anakin who delivered a sliced bread maneuver to Zero 1 to pick up a pin fall victory along with some momentum heading into the four corners match.
SINGLES MATCH –
“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. LA TARANTULA BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Still without a “W” in Premier Pro Wrestling, La Tarantula stepped into the ring to square off against an old foe in Andy Anderson. Hoping to redeem himself from two previous loses to PPW’s longest standing veteran, La Tarantula brought a new intensity to the match which Andy seemed ill prepared for as he spent a great deal of time trying to regroup outside the ring in the match’s early goings until finally seizing the advantage for himself, but no matter what he threw at La Tarantula, Andy could not close the deal and, in what was perhaps a moment of desperation, rolled La Tarantula up and grabbed a handful of trunks for added leverage, allowing Andy to sneak away with a pin fall and leave La Tarantula with yet another tally in the loss column.
SINGLES MATCH –
SEM SEI DEF. SLAPPO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
The second warm-up match granted en route to the big four corners main event was given to Sem Sei who had a rather unorthodox opponent in the jovial jester, Slappo, who succeeded in making Sem the butt of numerous jokes early on in the match, a strategy which frustrated Sem and caused him to lose a measure of focus for a time, but the fun and games came to an end when Sem, now looking to humiliate Slappo in kind, delivered an axe kick straight across the back of Slappo’s neck which knocked the clown silly and enabled Sem to pick up the win and momentum of his own going into the four corners match later on.
SINGLES MATCH –
SKYE BLUE DEF. “SHREDDIN’” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After missing PPW #183 due to illness, Skye Blue returned to action inside the Premier Studio to face off against the self-proclaimed “feminist,” Connor Corr. It seemed Skye was looking to make up for lost time as she seemed to have a renewed fire in the matchup, holding the advantage for quite some time and frequently catching Connor of guard with quick combinations of agility and mat technique and, in the end, Skye would show she could stand toe-to-toe with the boys in regard to strength as well when she was able to flip Connor onto his back by his arms and hook his legs for the win.
NON-TITLE GRUDGE MATCH –
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION RONNY “VERONICA” METRO DEF. “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
Unsatisfied with a disqualification victory over Ronny the week prior, Chase Gosling put out another challenge to the champion for a return match in which Chase sought to lay waste to the self-proclaimed “king of the world” and prove once and for all who the better man is. Conspicuous by his absence, however, was Ronny’s fellow Dirty Boy, Andy Anderson who had not accompanied Ronny to the ring. From the opening bell, the match resembled more of an out-and-out fight than an actual wrestling match, but this issue that has developed between Chase and Ronny has gone far beyond business and has become about as personal as things can get. As Ronny temporarily held the momentum in the match, Andy Anderson appeared and came to ringside to cheer on the champion, but Ronny wouldn’t hold the edge for long as Chase fought back hard and refused to let Ronny get away with the win, eventually leading to a situation in which Chase was able to roll Ronny up and get a three count, but as Chase celebrated his victory, Andy became involved and began threatening Chase with what can only be described as some sort of Irish shillelagh which Chase wrestled away from him, but as Chase held the shillelagh in his hand, Andy and Ronny began making accusations to the referee that Chase had used the club against Ronny before the pin fall. Having caught Chase with the proverbial smoking gun, the referee reversed the decision and awarded the match to Ronny by way of disqualification. Infuriated by the turn of events, Chase demanded that Andy meet him one-on-one at PPW #185 this coming Saturday night.
FOUR CORNERS MATCH FOR THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE DEF. SEM SEI, “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA, AND ANAKIN BY WAY OF PIN FALL
It then came time for what was perhaps the most hotly anticipated match of the night — a four corners match to determine a new number one contender to Ronny Metro’s PPW World Heavyweight Championship. Not to be confused with a fatal four-way in which all four participants are in the ring at the same time, this match would involve two men in the ring at a time while the other two waited in their respective corner and the only way to enter the match legally was by being tagged in by one of the men inside the ring. With so much at stake, alliances and friendships took a backseat and the Premier Planet in attendance was treated to numerous combinations of competitors as Iniestra squared off against Matt Vine, Anakin against Sem Sei, Anakin against Iniestra, Matt Vine against Anakin, and so on. Eventually, however, the four competitors became restless and began getting involved in breaking up pin fall and submission attempts which would ultimately lead to all four being in the ring at the same time. This was when both Matt and Iniestra seized on opportunities with Matt pinning Sem and Iniestra pinning Anakin. After a moment of confusion, it would be Matt Vine’s hand raised in victory as he and Sem had been the legal men in the match at the time of the double pin. This now puts Matt just one step away from potentially regaining the PPW World Heavyweight Championship for a record fourth time and he will get his chance when he faces the reigning champion, Ronny Metro, this coming Saturday in Woodstock.
