TAG TEAM MATCH
“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON & WOLFMAN HUCK DEF. “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR & ZERO 3 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Kicking off our first studio taping of 2019 was a unique tag team match pitting the duo of “Connest” Connor Corr and Zero 3 against the duo of “Irish” Andy Anderson and newcomer to PPW, the 310 pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck, who made quite an impression the week prior as Chase Gosling’s mystery opponent for PPW Champion, Matt Vine. Despite never having teamed together, Andy and Huck proved to be a formidable tandem as they gelled in the ring, eventually culminating in Huck delivering a 310 pound splash to Zero 3, allowing the legal man, Andy, to cover him for the first victory of the new year.
JOSE ACOSTA DEF. “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With his partners, Iniestra and Sem Sei, defending their Tag Team Championships in the main event, Jose Acosta was out to earn some momentum of his own when he faced the man who, several weeks ago, nearly dethroned Matt Vine to become PPW Champion, “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers. With both men equally comfortable on the mat and in the air, the match was an exciting seesaw battle until the two found themselves locked in a rapid fire exchange of pin fall attempts where Jose, out of sight of the referee, held onto Bryce’s tights to get the three count and steal the win.
ANAKIN DEF. PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With a chance to, once again, become one half of the PPW World Tag Team Champions on the horizon, the young hotshot Anakin was granted another opportunity on top of it when he was placed in a non-title match against the reigning PPW World Heavyweight Champion, “The Symbol of Excellence” Matt Vine, with the stipulation that, if Anakin could defeat the champion, he would earn a shot at PPW’s top prize at #PPW233. Known for his never-say-die attitude, Anakin showed the champion that he would not be underestimated. As the two clashed, the referee found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and was on the receiving end of a collision in the corner by mistake, temporarily taking him out of the equation. That was when Matt, looking for an easy way out, reached into his trunks and pulled out the chain he had used to steal a win over the 310 pound Wolfman Huck the week prior, but as Matt set his sights on Anakin, Anakin delivered a stiff kick to the back of Matt’s head, knocking the chain from his hand. Seeing the referee still down, Anakin picked up the chain and, giving Matt a taste of his own medicine, hit the champion with it and covered him just as the referee regained consciousness and counted the 1-2-3, giving Anakin not just the victory, but a guaranteed title shot which he will get this coming Saturday in the main event of #PPW233.
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. SLICK WILLY BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Since 2012, the Premier Academy has produced some of the finest young wrestling talent in the business and, at #PPW232, it was time for another Academy standout to make his debut — a young performer calling himself Slick Willy. Slick Willy showed an impressive amount of heart and in-ring skill against his opponent, PPW Tag Team Champion Iniestra, but despite a valiant effort, Iniestra’s experience and speed advantage proved to be too much for the newcomer and Iniestra delivered a sunset powerbomb to Slick Willy for the win.
“THE PRINCE OF PRO WRESTLING” TJ STEEL VS. “THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING ENDS IN A TIME LIMIT DRAW
After introducing TJ Steel as an impromptu opponent for Matt Vine the week prior, Chase Gosling felt the sting of betrayal when TJ attacked him instead of Matt, leading to Chase calling out TJ for a match at #PPW232. Thinking he could gain an early advantage on the former three-time PPW Champion, TJ jumped Chase from behind as Chase was making his entrance, but despite TJ’s targeted attack on his freshly healed shoulder, Chase fought back and the two traded the momentum back and forth until they found themselves in a deadlock and neither could seal the deal before the fifteen minute time limit expired, leading to the match being declared a draw. Still wanting to get the last laugh, TJ assaulted Chase after the match had already ended, and again targeted Chase’s shoulder, locking him in an arm bar and refusing to let go until he was satisfied with the damaged he inflicted.
PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEM SEI (C) DEF. NOT BAD CHAD & ANAKIN BY WAY OF PIN FALL TO RETAIN
Having earned their opportunity at the tag team titles in a six-man tag team match the week prior, Not Bad Chad and the new number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship, Anakin, wanted nothing more than to win the titles with the added bonus of humiliating Iniestra and Sem Sei who have been thorns in their sides, particularly Anakin’s, for several months. While Iniestra and Sem went to the well and tried to distract the referee in order to isolate their opponents from each other and initiate two-on-one attacks, Anakin and Chad would not quit and even the attempted outside interference by Jose Acosta could not stop the challengers’ momentum, but as the referee was distracted, PPW Champion Matt Vine crept down to ringside and hit Anakin with the same chain Anakin had used to secure the number one contendership for himself earlier in the evening, knocking him out and allowing the champs to gain a pin fall victory to retain their titles.
