LA TARANTULA DEF. ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
The opening contest featured some of PPW’s international flavor when Zero 2, representing Japan and his home island of Okinawa, took on La Tarantula, representing Mexico who, after a hard fought back and forth match, picked up the victory with a leaping swinging neck breaker.
SKYE BLUE DEF. ZERO 1 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With her mission to prove to all that girls can do anything guys can and, sometimes, do it better in full swing, fan favorite Skye Blue stepped into the ring across from an old rival in Zero 1 with “Con-est” Connor Corr in his corner, meaning Skye would have to focus her attention in two places during the match. This division of focus allowed Zero 1 to control a significant portion of the match, but while Skye may look like a delicate flower, inside every flower is a bee ready to sting. Once Skye recovered the momentum in the match, it seemed that she wasn’t unleashing just a bee, but rather an entire hornets nest on her opponent. Ascending the top turnbuckle, Skye took to the sky and delivered a diving cross-body to Zero 1 and pinning him much to the dismay of Connor Corr watching from Zero 1’s corner.
TAG TEAM MATCH
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEM SEI DEF. ANAKIN & JOSE ACOSTA BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After their one-on-one match at #PPW208 the previous Friday night ended in a thirty minute time limit draw, Anakin and Sem Sei stepped into the ring across from each other again, but this time it would be in a tag team match with Sem teaming with comrade Iniestra and Anakin teaming with Premier Academy standout, Jose Acosta, who had come under fire from Iniestra and Sem who claimed that Jose was on the wrong side by teaming with a caucasian, going as far as labeling him a “traitor.” Jose, however, a former serviceman in the U.S. Navy who had served with people from all sorts of diverse ethnic backgrounds, would not allow himself to be taken in by Iniestra and Sem’s verbal propaganda, but Jose and Anakin were put on the defensive for the majority of the match as their opponents repeatedly employed distractions to keep the referee from seeing tags between Anakin and Jose, leaving Anakin on the receiving end of double teams. Anakin, however, would not be taken down so easily and, eventually, was finally able to get a tag in to Jose and soon all four men found themselves in the ring together. Anakin and Jose successfully sent Iniestra and Sem colliding into each other, but while attempting a repeat, Iniestra and Sem locked arms and turned back toward their opponents, leading to Iniestra rolling up Jose while Anakin had Sem in a pinning predicament. When the referee made the three count, the Premier Planet was left confused for a tense moment until it was announced that, due to Iniestra and Jose being the legal men in the match, Iniestra had scored the winning pin for his team, adding another tally to their win column in this increasingly bitter rivalry.
“NOT BAD” CHAD DEF. “CON-EST” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
Having been endowed with even more confidence thanks to the tutelage of Andy Anderson, “Not Bad” Chad set out to prove himself in singles competition, but his opponent, Connor Corr, despite his moniker being a variation of the word “honest,” has become renowned for his use of sneaky tricks and a whatever-it-takes attitude to steal victories from his opponents. To combat this, Chad utilized a strategy of mind games in order to take Connor’s focus away which allowed Chad to stay on the offense for most of the match until Zero 2 stormed the ring and broke up a pin attempt as Chad had Connor covered which forced the referee to call for a disqualification against Connor, but Connor seemed unfazed as he and Zero 2 began a beatdown on Chad, that was until Skye Blue ran in to even the odds. When the dust settled, the announcement was made that, at #PPW211, there will be a tag team match. Connor will team with Zero 2 to take on the tandem of Chad and Skye.
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE (C) VS. “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING RULED A NO CONTEST (VINE RETAINS)
Now the third man in PPW history to win the Challenge Pro Cup and the year’s worth of bragging rights that go along with it, Chase Gosling’s victory in the tournament also earned him a World Heavyweight Championship match where he now looked to add a third reign as champion to his already extensive resume. In his way, however, stood the man holding the record for the most championship reigns in PPW history, Matt Vine. The previous weekend, Matt had retained his title in a triple threat match by pinning Chase after Chase was momentarily incapacitated by Jay Bradley. Then, the very next night, Chase had won the Challenge Pro Cup when he pinned Matt after Matt’s own momentary incapacitation at the hands of Iniestra. Both now entered the main event with a win over the other, but with neither being the result of the actions of the man who had scored each pin, leaving a great deal of speculation as to who would be the one to prove his worthiness of carrying the gold over in the clash between two of PPW’s longest standing talents. In the course of a very intense contest, the referee found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and was incapacitated when he was hit in the corner. A second referee came in to maintain order, but he too was quickly taken out of the equation when he was inadvertently knocked out. As both referees slowly regain consciousness, Matt and Chase found themselves in a pinning predicament where both men’s shoulders were on the canvass. Both referees crawled over to make the count, one counting Matt’s shoulders down while the other counted Chase’s shoulders down for the three. This led to a dispute between the referees which left COO Randy Ricci no choice but to rule a no contest. This ruling meant that Matt had retained the championship, but the announcement was made that the two will have a rematch at #PPW211 with the title on the line. The announcement did little to keep the tempers of Matt and Chase at bey, however, as the two began arguing ferociously in the ring. When Randy stepped in to try and calm the two, both shoved him out of the way and it took nearly the entire locker room to finally separate them.
