JOSE ACOSTA DEF. WOLFMAN HUCK BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Kicking off the festivities of #PPW243 was a one-on-one match between Jose Acosta and the three hundred and ten pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck. Jose may have been at a significant size disadvantage, but he brought an equalizer with him in the form of one half of the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Iniestra, and despite Huck being the bigger of the two, the numbers game proved to be too much for him as Iniestra interfered and caused Huck to lose his balance while Jose was attempting to roll him up with a sunset flip. This, coupled with Jose also grabbing ahold of Huck’s pants for added leverage, enabled Jose to steal a victory over the three hundred pounder, but Jose and Iniestra would have their celebration cut short when Huck unleashed his fury on both men in the ring, sending them running for the locker room and giving Huck the last laugh despite not getting the win.
SEM SEI DEF. “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Despite not being obligated to defend their “women” (AKA the PPW World Tag Team Championships) at #PPW243, the Tag Team Champions were in competition in separate one-on-one matches. The first of these matches saw Tag Champion, Sem Sei, take on “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers. Having spent time training together in the Premier Academy, Sem and Bryce were not strangers to each other and shifted the momentum back and forth with Bryce coming close on numerous occasions to scoring a win over one half of the Tag Team Champions, but Sem was able to catch Bryce off guard and delivered a swinging neckbreaker from between the ropes and picked up the victory thanks in part to also putting his feet on the ropes where the referee couldn’t see them.
“MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING DEF. “THE PRINCE OF PRO WRESTLING” TJ STEEL BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After a weeklong sabbatical, former three-time PPW World Heavyweight Champion Chase Gosling returned to the Premier Studio refreshed, replenished, and ready for competition, but he would have his hands full upon his return, because standing across the ring would be “The Prince of Pro Wrestling” TJ Steel, but TJ was not alone, because in his corner stood the Premier Pro Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion, Matt Vine, stacking the deck against Chase, but watching from the back, the 2019 Challenge Pro Cup Champion and number one contender to Matt’s title, Anakin, came to the ring to even the odds and watch Chase’s back. Using Anakin’s presence to their advantage, TJ and Matt tried to capitalize on an opening as Anakin argued with the referee on the opposite side of the ring, but their plan backfired when Chase ducked and caused Matt to hit TJ with a chain that was meant for Chase, at which point Chase covered TJ for the pin, scoring a victory over TJ and outsmarting the PPW Champion in the process.
SKYE BLUE DEF. “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR AFTER THE REFEREE REVERSED THE DECISION
When Connor Corr, Skye Blue, and The Russian Assassin were eliminated from the Challenge Pro Cup tournament the week prior due to going over the top rope and out to the floor at the same time, Connor placed all of the blame on Skye and challenged her to a match, but in his corner was the mysterious Russian Assassin who played a key role in the match and helped Connor steal a pin fall over Skye, but Connor hadn’t counted on the return of PPW veteran, “Irish” Andy Anderson, who came to the ring to bear witness to Connor’s misdeeds and put up an argument convincing enough to get the referee to reverse the decision and award the match to Skye. Furious, Connor picked up a microphone and challenged Andy and Skye to a tag team match against him and the Russian Assassin after the intermission.
**TAG TEAM MATCH**
“CONNEST” CONNOR CORR & THE RUSSIAN ASSASSIN DEF. SKYE BLUE & “IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With a chip now on their shoulders, Connor Corr and The Russian Assassin looked to exact revenge on the duo who, they felt, cost them a victory in the previous match, Skye Blue and the returning Andy Anderson. Having been absent from PPW for a significant length of time, Andy came ready to throw down with anyone who wanted to step to PPW’s resident party animal and, with Skye Blue in his corner, the two ran roughshod over Connor and the Russian Assassin, but the referee eventually became distracted which enabled the Russian Assassin to re-enter the ring with the Soviet flag. Running the pole into Andy’s throat, The Assassin incapacitated him and was able to pin Andy for the win, but after tending to Andy and seeing the damage the Assassin had done with the flag, Skye Blue challenged him to a match at #PPW244, but with a special stipulation. Skye felt that, if the Russian Assassin wanted to bring a flag into play, then it is only fitting that their match should be contested as a flag match where the winner will be the first competitor to retrieve his/her country’s flag.
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. NOT BAD CHAD BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Having assisted Jose Acosta in defeating Wolfman Huck in the opening contest and after his partner, Sem Sei, successfully won his match over “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers, Tag Team Champion Iniestra was confident he could make the amigos 3-0 for the night, but he would first have to get through the fan favorite boogie man, Not Bad Chad, who, despite his love of getting down and breaking out some killer dance moves, has become a formidable in-ring competitor, but in this instance, Chad’s abilities could not match those of the more experienced and agile Iniestra who brought Chad down with a sunset-bomb and gave his triad the win they needed to leave #PPW243 undefeated.
**PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE (C) VS. ANAKIN THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
After becoming the youngest Challenge Pro Cup Champion in Premier history at #PPW242, Anakin threw out the challenge for a title match to the man he pinned in the final round of the tournament to win the Cup, Matt Vine, who, despite having been pinned by Anakin in the tournament finals, made it very clear earlier in the week that he did not perceive Anakin to be any threat to his record-setting fifth reign as PPW Champion. With upward momentum on his side after winning the Challenge Pro Cup, it seemed like Anakin might finally grab the brass ring and unseat the champion, but Matt Vine was not about to simply let go of the title and the two traded momentum back and forth until TJ Steel came to ringside and attempted to interfere in the match, but hot on his heels was “Mr. Electricity” Chase Gosling. With TJ and Chase now in the equation, the referee quickly lost control of the contest and called for the match to be thrown out. Wielding a chair, Chase struck Matt in the back, but then unexpectedly began swinging at Anakin who just barely made it out of the ring before Chase could cause him serious injury. Now, with the ring to himself, Chase unfolded the chair, took a seat, and began explaining to all in attendance that his weeklong sabbatical from PPW had rendered him a changed man and that he was now completely focused on himself, stating that he had been wasting his energy and “electricity” on Anakin and the Premier Planet and now, with this new focus, Chase made it clear that his sights are firmly set on regaining the PPW World Heavyweight Championship and he doesn’t care who stands in his way of accomplishing it.
