“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING DEF. “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF SUBMISSION
When Chase Gosling separated his shoulder just over a month ago, it seemed he might never wrestle again, but with the same heart and drive that propelled him to three reigns as PPW World Heavyweight Champion, Chase fought back from his injury and triumphantly returned to in-ring competition at #PPW231 when he faced the self-proclaimed sportsman, Connor Corr, and quite literally made Connor squeal when he locked the “Connest” one in the Saturday Night Special, forcing Connor to submit and earning Chase a victory on his first night back in action in the PPW ring.
BEST OF SEVEN SERIES: MATCH #4
ZERO 1 (W/ CALI YOUNG) DEF. SKYE BLUE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Earlier in the week, it was announced via our social media outlets that the best of seven series between Skye Blue and Zero 1 would go on hold so that Skye could go one-on-one against special guest opponent, Cali Young, but when Cali came to the ring, she was unprepared to wrestle, leading to much confusion. Cali then announced that she would not wrestle Skye unless Skye could earn a match with her and the only way she would do that is by winning the best of seven series. Skye wouldn’t be the only one with added incentive, however. Introducing Zero 1, Cali informed him that, if he could win the series, he would be rewarded with certain non-specified privileges and announced that she would be standing in his corner during the match. Cali had greater intentions than simply cheering Zero 1 on, however. When Skye went out of the ring and onto the floor, Cali seized the opportunity to hit Skye with a chair while the referee was distracted inside the ring and rolled her back in where Zero 1 covered her for the 1-2-3. Zero 1 is now just one win away from taking home the victory in the series, but there is no denying the fight in Skye Blue and now, even with the odds firmly against her, Skye is certain to give her all in order to turn the tides, especially due to now having the added incentive of earning a match against the woman who cost her a win, Cali Young.
“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. NIKOLAI ZHUKOV (W/ “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR) BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With New Years just around the corner, PPW’s resident party animal, “Irish” Andy Anderson, looked to drop an opponent before the ball dropped and party his way into 2019, but standing in his way was Connor Corr’s personal superpower, Nikolai Zhukov. Believing that the Soviet Union will one day rise again, Nikolai was well on his way to proving Russian dominance in the PPW ring, but he underestimated his opponent. With over fifteen years of in-ring experience, Andy was able to turn the tides on the big Russian and, with an Andybomb, halted Nikolai’s war path and earned a victory as he danced his way out of the Premier Studio and into the new year.
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE DEF. WOLFMAN HUCK BY WAY OF PIN FALL
When Chase Gosling shocked the PPW Champion with a surprise return at #PPW230, Matt Vine could barely believe his eyes, especially after weeks of non-stop bragging that he had ended Chase’s wrestling career. To top it off, Chase also informed Matt that he had hand selected a mystery opponent for Matt, making the champion unable to prepare for who was to come. After journeying to a small native village in Alaska, where he claims to have received healing for his separated shoulder, Chase had brought back the village’s strongest and most formidable warrior and introduced the Alaskan mountain man, Wolfman Huck. Weighing in at over 300 pounds, Huck provided a sizable challenge for the champion who had a difficult time adapting to his much larger opponent, but Matt had a few tricks up his sleeve. As the referee tried to separate the two men in the corner, Matt pulled a chain from his trucks and hit Huck squarely in the temple, knocking him out and enabling Matt to capitalize with a pin, stealing a victory over Chase’s mystery opponent.
Chase was not done with Matt Vine, however. Coming back out to the ring after the match, Chase informed Matt that he had been assigned another match to begin immediately and his opponent was to be none other than “The Prince of Pro Wrestling” TJ Steel, but as TJ seemed ready to take the fight to Matt, he turned around and began attacking Chase and, together with Matt, beat down the former three-time PPW Champion until Anakin, Not Bad Chad, and N.P.K. ran in to make the save and chased off Matt and TJ. Regaining his footing, Chase threw out a challenge to TJ for a one-on-one match at #PPW232 and promised to make TJ pay for his treachery.
SIX-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
NOT BAD CHAD, N.P.K., & ANAKIN DEF. JOSE ACOSTA AND PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA, & SEM SEI BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With the battle lines clearly drawn in one of the hottest rivalries in PPW history, the trio of Jose Acosta and the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Sem Sei, have been staking their claim of dominance over PPW’s tag team division, but their rivals, Anakin and Not Bad Chad, have been right on their heels over recent weeks, trying to knock the self-proclaimed “special people” off of the summit and now, with their newfound ally, N.P.K., had evened the odds. After the World Tag Team Championship match at #PPW230 was thrown out due to outside interference, a six-man tag team match was signed with championship implications. Iniestra, Sem, and Jose would go three-on-three against Chad, Anakin, and N.P.K. and, should the latter three seize victory, Anakin and Chad would earn another shot at the titles. Despite his lack of experience, Premier Academy standout, N.P.K., had proven his skills against Iniestra in one-on-one action in the opening contest at #PPW230 and proved to be an effective partner to Anakin and Chad as the three repeatedly stalled the momentum of their opponents, but when feuds become personal, emotions and bitter feelings often take the wheel and eventually all six men found themselves in the ring at the same time, causing the referee to temporarily lose control, but the chaos provided a crucial opportunity for Anakin, Chad, and N.P.K. who took advantage of the chaos as each rolled up an opponent while the referee made the three count, earning them not only a moral victory, but also a guaranteed championship match for Anakin and Not Bad Chad who will get their opportunity at our first studio taping of 2019 this coming Saturday night, but that’s not the only opportunity that has come knocking. On top of now being number one contender for the PPW World Tag Team Championship, young Anakin also has the opportunity to contend for PPW’s top prize when he faces the PPW World Heavyweight Champion, “The Symbol of Excellence” Matt Vine, in a non-title match, but if Anakin can beat the champion, he will earn a match for the title!
