**TAG TEAM MATCH**
WOLFMAN HUCK & SLICK WILLY DEF. “CONNEST” CONNOR CORR & ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Despite an uncommonly cold and snowy late April night in Woodstock, the action inside the Premier Studio was as hot as ever and kicking of the night of action at #PPW248 was a tag team match which saw the wily self-proclaimed favorite son of McHenry County, Connor Corr, team with Zero 2 to take on the tandem of Premier Academy standout, Slick Willy, and three hundred and ten pounds of Alaskan wild man in Wolfman Huck who spoiled Connor and Zero 2’s evening with a big splash the left the self-proclaimed “sportsman” reeling and unable to kick out from under Huck’s three hundred plus pound frame.
SEMSEI DEF. NOT BAD CHAD BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After being robbed of a chance to become a first-time PPW World Tag Team Champion at #PPW247, Not Bad Chad had the opportunity to rebuild some momentum when he went one-on-one against one half of the reigning Tag Team Champions, Semsei who ended the party for Chad thanks to a swinging neck breaker through the ropes, but not even defeat would stop Chad from boogying down in the middle of the ring after the match.
SKYE BLUE VS. “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS ENDS IN A TIME LIMIT DRAW
At the forefront of a changing landscape in the world of professional wrestling, Skye Blue was given the opportunity to call out anyone from the Premier locker room in a match dubbed “Skye’s Choice” and the opponent she chose was a young man with whom she had partnered with in the past and who was also in the ring with Skye in his first ever professional match, “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers. With fifteen minutes on the clock, the two fan favorites showcased their abilities in front of the Premier Planet, but neither could seal the deal before the time limit expired in spite of maximum effort from both competitors. Despite being disappointed by the outcome, both Skye and Bryce showed their humility with a congratulatory handshake in the ring when the match was over in a show of respect for the other’s abilities.
ANAKIN DEF. “MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING
When Chase assisted the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Semsei, in retaining their titles against Anakin and Not Bad Chad at #PPW247, Anakin drew a line in the sand and called out his former mentor for a one-on-one match. Seeing an opportunity to teach his ex-protege a very painful lesson, Chase accepted Anakin’s challenge and the two went to war inside the PPW ring. Despite out-sizing Anakin by nearly a foot and outweighing him by nearly a hundred pounds, no matter what Chase threw at his opponent, Anakin continued to fight until Chase saw an opening and, with his hands hidden from the referee’s vantage point, wrapped a small chain around his knuckles, striking the 2019 Challenge Pro Cup Champion over the referee’s shoulder as the referee attempted to separate the two, leading to Chase picking up a pin fall over Anakin, but Chase’s victory celebration would be short-lived when the chain fell out from under Chase’s arm in full view of the referee who, upon seeing the proverbial smoking gun, reversed the decision and awarded the match to Anakin. Upon hearing this, Chase flew into a rage and began attacking his former protege until Wolfman Huck stormed the ring and separated Chase from Anakin. Irritated that Huck would dare stick his nose in Chase’s business, Chase challenged Huck to a one-on-one match at #PPW249 which was declared a done deal on the spot by Premier COO, Randy Ricci.
**PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE (C) DEF. JOSE ACOSTA BY WAY OF PIN FALL TO RETAIN
After two back-to-back weeks of non-title competition, “The Symbol of Excellence” was obligated to return to defending his record-setting fifth reign as PPW World Heavyweight Champion at #PPW248, but he would be faced with formidable competition from a young athlete who had endured and overcome the odds in a four corners elimination match at #PPW247 to earn the right to challenge for the title, Jose Acosta. Per PPW policy, in order to leave with the gold, one competitor would have to score two falls to win the match and the champion struck first, delivering a piledriver to the challenger to pick up a pin fall, but when Matt got ahead of himself, thinking he had won the second fall and retained his title due to not seeing Jose’s foot on the bottom rope as the referee made the count, Jose delivered a leg lariat from behind to tie the score. It was now do-or-die for both men as the match entered the third and final fall, but the champion received assistance from a surprising source when Semsei, who had been sitting at ringside watching the match, turned on Jose, grabbing hold of his legs as Jose attempted to leverage Matt back into the ring from the apron which caused Jose to lose his balance and nearly enabled the champion to score the third fall. Jose did manage to kick out, but he made the mistake of turning his back to the task at hand in order to deal with Semsei on the outside. This lapse in focus ended up costing Jose dearly as it enabled the champion to sneak up from behind, roll up the challenger, and, thanks to a handful of Jose’s tights, retain the PPW World Heavyweight Championship. Not content in his victory, however, Matt decided he would make an example of Jose and proceeded to attack him after the match, but as Matt turned his back to gloat to the Premier Planet, Jose regained a vertical base and delivered a stiff kick to the champion’s jaw, knocking him out and leaving him laying in the middle of the ring. When Matt regained consciousness, he was absolutely furious at the turn of events — so much so that he threw out a challenge to Jose for a rematch at #PPW249 with the gold on the line which Jose accepted on the spot.
