Full match results from April 21, 2018 #PPW192 taping at Premier Pro Wrestling studios in Woodstock, IL and Post Show Wrap Up with Justin Barlow.
RANDOM FANDOM CHALLENGE –
PPW kicked of its 192nd studio taping with not one, not two, not three, but four Random Fandom Challenge matches where the Premier Planet would decide who would face who via random drawing.
SEM SEI VS. “IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON ENDS IN A TIME LIMIT DRAW
The first draw of the night turned out to be Sem Sei and Sem had an unenviable task ahead of him when his opponent was drawn to be none other than PPW veteran Andy Anderson. With the Premier Planet back in his corner after over a year of being influenced by Ronny Metro, Andy seemed ready to conquer whatever was put in front of him, but just as Andy delivered an Andybomb out of the corner and had Sem covered, the time limit expired, resulting in a draw.
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. “NOT BAD” CHAD BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Adding to the surprise factor of the Random Fandom was the entry of a debuting student from the Premier Academy, “Not Bad” Chad, and the rookie lived up to that moniker in his match against his opponent, Iniestra, controlling a significant portion of the matchup which lead Iniestra, perhaps in a moment of desperation, to deliver a thumb to the rookie’s eye, temporarily blinding him and allowing Iniestra the opening he needed to deliver a German suplex and bridge to get the win.
“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING DEF. ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
The next draw in the Random Fandom saw Zero 2 (with Zero 3 and Connor Corr in his corner) forced to contend with the former two time PPW Champion, Chase Gosling. Despite employing the switching tactic they have become known for, an outnumbered Chase showed why he has held the title on two separate occasions and was able to pick up the victory when he delivered a thunderous powerbomb to Zero 2 for the 1-2-3.
ANAKIN DEF. “SHREDDIN’” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
It came down to the two remaining talents who turned out to be Anakin and the self-proclaimed feminist, Connor Corr (accompanied by Zero 2 and Zero 3). Even though he was outnumbered by Connor in the ring and the Zeroes on the outside, Anakin managed to use Connor’s own momentum against him and roll him up for the win, giving Anakin a boost of morale before his big tag team match later on and leaving Connor and the Zeroes 2-0 for the night.
TAG TEAM MATCH –
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEM SEI DEF. ANAKIN & “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With their rivalry reaching fever pitch, Iniestra, Sem Sei, Anakin, and Chase Gosling, were given the opportunity to settle their scores in tag team action. Confident that they would gel much better than the opposition, Iniestra and Sem tried to keep Anakin and Chase isolated from each other throughout the course of the match, but whatever Iniestra and Sem threw at them, Anakin and Chase threw right back. Eventually, all four men found themselves in the ring at the same time and it was then that Chase rolled Sem up with a small package and, across the ring, Iniestra rolled Anakin up with a small package of his own. The referee counted the three and after a moment of confusion due to the double pin, informed the ring announcer that Iniestra and Anakin had been the legal men at the time of the pin fall, making Iniestra and Sem the winners, but never one to let someone get one-up on him or his teammates, Chase issued the challenge for a rematch this coming Saturday which was quickly granted by Premier officials.
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
RONNY “VERONICA” METRO (C) DEF. “THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
Claiming an injury one week prior, PPW Champion Ronny Metro was given an ultimatum by Premier COO Randy Ricci. Since Randy did not believe Ronny’s claims, but could not force him to compete for liability reasons, Randy informed Ronny that, should he fail to defend the championship against the number one contender, Matt Vine, at #PPW192, he would be stripped of the title and the title would be awarded to Matt by default, bringing Matt automatically into a record setting fourth reign as champion. Not willing to let the championship be taken and given to his arch rival, Ronny came ready for competition and defended the title tooth and nail until Matt dished out a flurry of offense that lead to Ronny making a break for the locker room, apparently willing to take a count out loss in order to save his title, but his route was cut off by Andy Anderson who chased him to the other side of the ring where the two engaged in an altercation and then were greeted with a leap over the top rope by Matt. As the referee counted toward ten, Matt was able to get back under the bottom rope at the count of nine. The referee called for the bell, but just as everyone thought Matt had won via count out, the referee informed the ring announcer that, due to Andy putting his hands on Ronny, the winner by way of disqualification and still PPW Champion was Ronny Metro. After Ronny left the ringside area to celebrate, Andy, visibly distraught over the turn of events, offered no shortage of apologies to Matt, but the night would not end in bad news for the former champ as it was announced that, due to the circumstances surrounded the close of the match, Matt will receive another shot at Ronny and the title this coming Saturday night!
