WOLFMAN HUCK DEF. “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Despite never being short on confidence, McHenry County’s self-proclaimed “favorite son,” Connor Corr, had the unenviable task of trying to take down the three hundred and ten pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck, and try as Connor did, Huck’s superior size won the day thanks to a three hundred and ten pound splash.
PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE DEF. “THE LOVE MACHINE” MATT LONGTIME BY WAY OF SUBMISSION
Having gone to a thirty minute time limit draw against Brandon Wolfe at #PPW246, many thought a weakness in the armor of the PPW Champion may have been exposed and now Matt Vine would have to prove that he was as dominant as ever, but standing across the ring would be ring veteran, Matt Longtime, whose experience wrestling all over the country cast a long shadow over that of Matt Vine. Longtime gained an early advantage by playing Vine’s ego and desire to be the best at everything he does against him, but when the champion regained the momentum he locked Longtime in a figure four leg lock, forcing the veteran to tap out.
NOT BAD CHAD DEF. SKYE BLUE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Things may not have gone so well for Skye Blue when she was allowed to name her own opponent at #PPW246, but it did nothing to slow the fan favorite’s desire for competition and Skye was given a new opportunity to name her opponent at #PPW247, but who would Skye pick? Her choice turned out to be PPW’s resident boogie man, Not Bad Chad, who, despite being scheduled for a Tag Team Championship main event later in the evening, quickly stepped up to the plate to accept Skye’s challenge. With Chad needing to gain some early momentum heading into the main event and Skye looking to reverse her fortunes after suffering a loss the week prior, both were equally motivated to win, but as Skye tried to push Chad off of the ropes for what appeared to be a pin fall attempt, Chad fell backwards onto Skye, pinning Skye’s shoulders down and handing her a loss.
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Not Bad Chad was not the only participant in the Tag Team Championship match looking for some early momentum. Before defending their titles, the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Semsei, would compete in one-on-one matches against two of the Premier Academy’s top standout. The first match would take place between “El Mero Mero” Iniestra and “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers who was hungry to prove himself against the former PPW Champion and reigning Tag Team Champion, but Iniestra dashed those hopes with a sunset bomb, walking away with a moral victory before the main event.
SEMSEI DEF. SLICK WILLY BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With his partner already having added a notch to their win column for the night, the other half of the Tag Team Champions, Semsei, looked to make the champions two-for-three as he went one-on-one against Slick Willy who put up quite a fight against the Tag Team Champion, but when Willy let his guard down, Sem struck with a swinging neckbreaker through the second rope to pick up a pin fall and make the Tag Team Champions 2-0 heading into their upcoming title defense.
**FOUR CORNERS ELIMINATION MATCH FOR A PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP OPPORTUNITY**
JOSE ACOSTA DEF. N.P.K., “MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING, & WRESTLING ANDY
Although an open invitation had been extended to Brandon Wolfe for a PPW World Heavyweight Championship match the next time Wolfe would be in town, the number one contender’s seat in PPW was still left vacant and needed to be filled. In order to decide who would earn the next opportunity at Matt Vine and the PPW World Heavyweight Championship, Premier officials chose four worthy competitors based on current win/loss records to compete in a four corners elimination match, but when Anakin voluntarily stepped down in order to focus on his upcoming Tag Team Championship match with Not Bad Chad, there was a void that needed to be filled. Anakin was, however, granted to power to name his replacement in the match and the competitor he chose would be Premier Academy standout, N.P.K., who now found himself with the biggest opportunity of his young career. The first elimination occurred when Wrestling Andy had Chase Gosling hung up in a tree of woe, but unseen to Andy and the referee, Chase produced a chain from his boot and hit Andy in the face with it when Andy went in for the kill, allowing Chase to pin Andy and remove him from the picture, but when Chase let his guard down, he found himself the next one eliminated when he set Jose up for an electric chair drop, turning his back on N.P.K. and giving N.P.K. an opening to dropkick Chase in the back which enabled Jose to use the forward momentum to roll Chase up with a victory roll and take “Mr. Electricity” out of the equation. It was now down to Jose and N.P.K. The winner of the next fall would be declared the new number one contender. With everything to gain and to lose, the two young men put their every effort into trying to best the other, wrestling into a stalemate, but the stalemate was broken when Jose executed a split-legged moonsault in the corner and took away N.P.K.’s last gasp, scoring a pin fall and becoming the new number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship!
**PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEMSEI (C) DEF. NOT BAD CHAD & ANAKIN DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
Iniestra and Semsei may have been 2-0 heading into the main event, but now their reign as PPW World Tag Team Champions was in serious jeopardy as they put their titles on the line against the formidable and in sync duo of Not Bad Chad and Anakin in a two-out-of-three falls match. The champions struck first when Anakin had Iniestra rolled up for a pin, but Sem got into the ring which caused Chad to enter as well and as the referee was distracted with Chad, Sem reversed the pin, rolling Iniestra onto Anakin and enabling the champions to pick up the first fall. Iniestra and Sem then tried to further increase their odds by attacking Anakin during the rest period and capitalizing when the bell rang to start the second fall, but the challengers fought back and, for a time, it seemed like the tide may have been turning in their favor, but out from the curtain emerged Chase Gosling who brought with him the chain that had helped him to eliminated Wrestling Andy from the four corners elimination match and threw it into the ring, intended for the champions, but it was Anakin who would retrieve it and use it, picking up the second fall initially, but when Iniestra and Sem pointed out that the chain was laying in the ring, they convinced the referee to reverse the decision, making the champions the winners of the second fall and the match.
