TRIPLE THREAT MATCH –
“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING DEF. ZERO 3 AND LA TARANTULA BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With his crucial number one contenders match looming, Chase Gosling first had to contend with not one, but two opponents in a triple threat match. Despite the efforts of both Zero 3 and La Tarantula, Chase proved to be too much for the two to handle and, with a thunderous powerbomb to Zero 3, picked up a win on his way to face Iniestra to decide who would face Matt Vine for the title at #PPW200.
SINGLES MATCH –
“THE SCIENCE” MARCUS SMITH DEF. KIM CHEE BY WAY OF SUBMISSION
Always wanting to start his matches on a high note, Marcus Smith, in classic fashion, kicked things off with a joke, but found that his opponent, Kim Chee, was in no laughing mood. Things did seem bleak for “The Science” temporarily, but momentum shifted to his favor in the literal sense. When Kim Chee kicked out of an attempted crucifix pin, Marcus used his forward momentum to put Kim Chee in a seated position while Marcus synched in a submission hold. With nowhere to go and both arms tangled up by Marcus, Kim Chee was forced to tap out, meaning that Marcus would have the last laugh.
#1 CONTENDERS MATCH –
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA VS. “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
With not only an opportunity at the PPW World Heavyweight Championship, but a chance to seize it at PPW’s biggest taping to date hanging in the balance, Iniestra and Chase Gosling found themselves in do-or-die scenario. To level the playing field, however, it was the decision of Premier officials to bar Sem Sei, who had accompanied Iniestra to the ring, from ringside. On top of that, the match was also given a special time limit of one hour. Knowing what each had to gain and lose, Iniestra and Chase, who have been embroiled in a bitter rivalry outside of the championship picture, threw everything they had at one another in order to earn the place across from the champion, Matt Vine, in the main event of #PPW200 which both knew would be a big deal in its own right. However, as the Premier Planet looked on in eager anticipation of who would earn the title match, Sem Sei was able to sneak back down to ringside and beneath the ring under the referee’s radar. As Chase closed in to finish Iniestra off, Sem emerged, entered the ring, and hit Chase across the back with the kendo stick which left the referee little choice but to throw the match out due to the interference. This now left Premier officials with a critical dilemma. With no legitimate number one contender, what would become of the World Championship main event at #PPW200?
TAG TEAM MATCH –
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEM SEI DEF. ANAKIN & LEVI BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Having brutalized former two-time PPW Champion, Chase Gosling, Iniestra and Sem Sei were all confidence heading into their tag team match against two of the Premier Academy’s top standouts, Anakin and Levi. Divide and conquer was the name of the game for Iniestra and Sem as they successfully isolated the less experienced Levi from his partner, frequently distracting the referee so he would not see Levi make tags then using the distraction as the referee argued with Anakin about the tags to initiate double teams on the young standout. Eventually, though, Levi was able to finally tag Anakin in so the referee could see it, but that was when things became chaotic. When Iniestra and Sem had regained control of the match after an onslaught from Anakin and Levi, Chase Gosling came to the ring and began arguing with the official about Iniestra and Sem’s use of underhanded tactics in the match. That was when Iniestra delivered a dropkick to the referee’s back which not only incapacitated the referee, but also knocked Chase off the apron in the process. While the ref was down, Iniestra brought the kendo stick into the mix and hit Levi across the back which then allowed Sem to cover him. With Anakin unable to assist and Chase being just a fraction of a second too slow to break the count, Sem picked up the pin and he and Iniestra were declared the winners, but a brawl then broke out which saw Iniestra and Sem narrowly escape a beat down before escaping to the locker room. Chase then issued a challenge for a tag team match at #PPW200 where he and Anakin will team up to face Iniestra and Sem, but due to the intense animosity between the two sides, this match will have a special stipulation as a two-out-of-three falls match!
NON-TITLE MATCH –
“THE PRINCE OF PRO WRESTLING” T.J. STEEL DEF. PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
All week, the Premier Planet had been eagerly awaiting the clash between four-time champion, Matt Vine, and the new face in PPW who wasted no time in declaring that he wants to be the new face of PPW, T.J. Steel. Since T.J. had not earned an opportunity at the championship, the match was non-title, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t something valuable at stake. Due to the number one contenders match between Iniestra and Chase Gosling being thrown out earlier in the evening which left no challenger for the title at #PPW200, it was the decision of Premier officials to rule that, should T.J. defeat Matt in their non-title bout, he would earn the place as challenger for the title at #PPW200. After becoming the first and, thus far, only four-time champion in PPW history and going to war with former champion, Ronny Metro, in order to claim that distinction, Matt Vine defines himself as both a champion in the ring and a champion of the Premier Planet and was not about to simply let a newcomer like T.J. Steel challenge his throne so easily and Matt fought to retain his status as top dog in PPW tooth and nail, but T.J. proved to be more crafty than the champion had anticipated. During a pin attempt, T.J. was able to roll through and get Matt’s shoulders on the mat then, for added leverage, grabbed ahold of Matt’s trunks, unseen by the referee, which gave him the unfair advantage he needed to steal the pin and, in doing so, become the new number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship and he will get his opportunity in the main event this Saturday night when PPW celebrates its most historic studio taping to date. Can the self-proclaimed “Prince of Pro Wrestling” knock Matt Vine off the mountain or will the man who has become known as “The Symbol of Excellence” fend off the new threat to his reign? Find out this Saturday night when Premier Pro Wrestling celebrates our historic 200th studio taping!
