– SINGLES MATCH –
SEM SEI DEF. N.P.K. BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Having already made quite an impression in his short time in Premier Pro Wrestling, Premier Academy standout, N.P.K., looked to widen that impact when he took on one half of the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Sem Sei. For a time, it seemed as though N.P.K. might give Sem a metaphorical black eye before Sem went on to the main event to defend the tag team titles with Iniestra, but N.P.K. could not overcome Sem’s significant experience advantage and, using his notable upper body strength, Sem drove his opponent into the canvas which was enough to put N.P.K. down for the three count and give Sem a moral victory on his way to the main event.
– FOUR CORNERS TAG TEAM ELIMINATION MATCH TO CROWN NEW #1 CONTENDERS –
“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING & ANAKIN DEF. ZERO 2 & “THE PERSIAN POWERHOUSE” MILAD AKBAR, “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR & JOSE ACOSTA, AND WOLFMAN HUCK & “IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON
While Iniestra and Sem Sei knew they would have to defend that tag team titles in the main event, their disadvantage laid in not knowing who their challengers would be as there were no legitimate number one contenders to the titles, but all of that would soon change as four randomly drawn tag teams tangled in a four corners elimination match to determine who would step up to face the champions in the main event. The four teams consisted of Iniestra and Sem’s close associate, Jose Acosta, teaming with the self-proclaimed sportsman and feminist, “Connest” Connor Corr, “Irish” Andy Anderson teaming with the three hundred plays pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck, former three-time PPW Champion, Chase Gosling teaming with Anakin, and in a stunning turn of events, Zero 2’s partner, Zero 3, was replaced by former PPW World Heavyweight Champion, “The Persian Powerhouse” Milad Akbar. The first elimination occurred by way of disqualification when Andy Anderson lost himself in the heat of battle and delivered a low blow to Connor which was followed with a big splash from Huck and it wasn’t long before Connor and Jose found themselves headed for the showers, because they were then quickly eliminated when Anakin, in a high risk maneuver, leapt off of Chase Gosling’s shoulders to deliver a splash which brought the match down to the final two teams. Despite a long absence away from the ring, Milad Akbar showed little rust as he demonstrated why he is known as “The Persian Powerhouse” but all of Milad’s power could not stop Chase and Anakin from seizing the moment when Anakin was able to score the deciding pin, eliminating Zero 2 and Milad and bringing he and Chase one step closer to claiming the PPW World Tag Team Championships.
– BEST OF SEVEN SERIES: MATCH #7 –
SKYE BLUE (3-3) DEF. ZERO 1 (3-3) BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After coming back from a 1-3 deficit, Skye Blue was able to tie the score with Zero 1 to bring the two into the seventh and final match of their series, but what began as a friendly contest for bragging rights had now turned into a bitter feud between former allies and it all centered around one figure, Cali Young, who, after refusing to wrestle Skye at #PPW231, made promises to both competitors. She stipulated that she would face Skye only if Skye could win the series, but in order to further motivate Zero 1, Cali promised him that, if he could win the series, he would be rewarded with a date. With revenge in Skye’s mind and hearts in Zero 1’s eyes, the two locked up in what was perhaps their most intense match to date, but in the end only one would prevail and, with impressive flexibility, Skye was able to roll Zero 1 up for a pin and execute a back bridge across his legs for the leverage she needed to get the three count and bring home the series. Skye now has her focus firmly set on Cali Young and will get her chance at retribution this coming Saturday night at #PPW236.
– NON-TITLE MATCH –
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE DEF. NOT BAD CHAD BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Despite having a night off from defending his record-breaking fifth reign as PPW World Heavyweight Champion, the self-proclaimed “Symbol of Excellence” Matt Vine did not have a night off from competition and squared off against one of the fastest rising stars in Premier Pro Wrestling, Not Bad Chad. Matt was clearly overflowing with confidence going into the match, but Chad had more than a few surprises in store for his opponent and frequently turned the tables on the five-time champ, but just as it seemed like Chad might pull off a miracle, Matt delivered a piledriver, dropping Chad on his head and, as Matt covered Chad for the pin, the referee failed to see Chad’s foot on the bottom rope, enabling Matt to pick up the victory, but the story did not end there. Emerging from the locker room as Matt celebrated his win, “The Prince of Pro Wrestling” T.J. Steel entered the ring and, together with the champion, began a two-on-one beatdown on Not Bad Chad until “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers ran into the ring with a chair and chased off the two assailants. Angry over the turn of events, Bryce and Chad challenged Matt and T.J. to a tag team match which will take place this Saturday night at #PPW236.
– PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
“THE HUNK WITH THE TREE TRUNKS” CHASE GOSLING & ANAKIN DEF. “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEM SEI (C) BY WAY OF PIN FALL TO WIN THE TITLES
With new number one contenders now crowned, it was time for the self-proclaimed “special people,” Iniestra and Sem Sei, to defend their tag team gold. Doing so would be no easy task, however, as standing across the ring would be the formidable duo of former Tag Team Champion, Anakin, who so very nearly dethroned Matt Vine as PPW Champion just one week prior, and former three-time PPW World Heavyweight Champion, Chase Gosling. With a lot of bitter history between the two sides, the match was as intense as one could expect and, after tossing Iniestra out of the ring, Chase scored a pin on Sem, sending Chase and Anakin into a frenzy of celebration, but as Chase and Anakin walked back through the curtain wth the tag team titles, Iniestra called them back to the ring, reminding them that, because this was a championship match, the two-out-of-three falls rule was in effect and, even though they had won the first fall, the match was far from over. As the one minute rest period counted down to the last seconds, Chase and Anakin returned to the ring, but the tables were turned when Iniestra and Sem were able to double team Anakin and score a pin, bringing the match into the third and deciding fall. With, as the saying goes, all of the marbles on the line, the third fall proved to be the most physically intense for both sides, but only one team could leave with the gold and, with an impressive display of teamwork, Anakin and Chase were able to separate Iniestra and Sem and, after sending Iniestra into the ropes and using the backward momentum to roll him up, Chase scored the third fall, making him and Anakin the new PPW World Tag Team Champions!
