**TRIPLE THREAT FLAG MATCH**
SKYE BLUE DEF. THE RUSSIAN ASSASSIN AND ZERO 3 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After being attacked by Zero 3 while waving Old Glory high after defeating The Russian Assassin in a flag match at #PPW244, Skye Blue challenged both Zero 3 and The Russian Assassin to a triple threat flag match at #PPW245. Skye’s odds looked bleak as she stepped in the ring against two of her arch rivals and the added factor of “Connest” Connor Corr did nothing to swing the odds in Skye’s favor, but just like the American spirit she represented in the match, Skye overcame the odds and executed a pin on not just one, but both of her opponents, earning her the victory and the privilege of waving the red, white, and blue proudly in the ring as Connor assisted his “foreign friends” back to the locker room to lick their wounds.
**RANDOM FANDOM TAG TEAM ELIMINATION GAUNTLET**
ANAKIN & NOT BAD CHAD DEF. PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEMSEI BY WAY OF PIN FALL IN THE FINAL ROUND
In a never before seen match in Premier Pro Wrestling, an opportunity at the PPW World Tag Team Championships hung in the balance in a Random Fandom tag team elimination gauntlet where the order of the participants and their partners would be determined through random drawing by the fans in attendance. The first two wrestlers drawn would be paired up as a team and would begin the gauntlet against the team of the third and fourth wrestlers drawn. When one participant was eliminated, his/her partner would then have to team with the next wrestler drawn at random by the fans. The gauntlet would continue until only two teams remained. The victorious tandem would be awarded a PPW World Tag Team Championship match at #PPW246. The first random draw of the gauntlet fell to Premier Academy standout, “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers and his randomly drawn tag team partner turned out to be PPW’s resident party animal, “Irish” Andy Anderson. When the time came to draw the first of Bryce and Andy’s opponents, fans were in for a surprise as the third draw of the gauntlet was revealed to be none other than the reigning PPW World Heavyweight Champion, “The Symbol of Excellence” Matt Vine, who was less than thrilled about having to enter the gauntlet in the first round. With Matt Vine’s partner still to be decided, Andy Anderson pleaded to be the one to draw Matt’s partner in the hopes of making things even more difficult for the champion, but instead drew Jose Acosta to be Matt’s partner. The bell rang and the gauntlet was underway! The order of matches and eliminations proceeded as follows…
(e) = eliminated participant
Matt Vine & Jose Acosta def. Bryce Akers (e) (pin) & Andy Anderson
Andy Anderson & Wolfman Huck def. Jose Acosta (e) (pin) & Matt Vine
Matt Vine & Not Bad Chad def. Wolfman Huck (e) (pin) & Andy Anderson

Anakin & Not Bad Chad def. Connor Corr (e) (pin) & Chase Gosling
Anakin & Not Bad Chad def. Chase Gosling (e) (count out) & Skye Blue (e) (pin)
With only two participants left to draw, the gauntlet entered its final round and the final two participants were revealed to be Zero 1 and Zero 2, but when the Zeroes emerged through the curtain, it was evident that it was not Zero 1 and Zero 2 under the masks, but rather the PPW World Tag Team Champions, “El Mero Mero” Iniestra and Semsei, who apparently believed they could fool their opponents, the referee, and everyone in attendance with the ruse, but it seemed that the champions were the only ones convinced. Regardless of the charade, the referee allowed the match to proceed as scheduled, but Iniestra & Semsei’s best laid plans were rendered fruitless when Anakin and Chad pinned both champions at the same time, scoring the final fall in the gauntlet and earning them an opportunity at the PPW World Tag Team Championships. Not only that, the new number one contenders picked up a significant psychological advantage by defeating the reigning champions in the process. As Anakin and Chad partied in the ring, they seemed ready for their upcoming clash for the titles, but will their momentum be enough to carry them through a two-out-of-three falls tag team match and on to the World Tag Team Championships at #PPW246? We’ll find out this Saturday!
