**#1 CONTENDERS TAG TEAM MATCH**
NOT BAD CHAD & “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS DEF. SLICK WILLY & WOLFMAN HUCK BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With no legitimate contenders to the PPW World Tag Team Championships held by PPW’s self-proclaimed “special people,” Iniestra and Semsei, a match was scheduled to decide which team would be next in line for a shot at the champions. “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers and Not Bad Chad went toe-to-toe against the less experienced, but larger duo of Slick Willy and the three hundred and ten pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck, but despite their greater size, Willy and Huck proved to be no match for the well-oiled and in-sync tandem of Bryce and Chad and with a double sunset flip, Bryce and Chad rolled up both of their opponents at the same time, scoring the three count and earning their place as next in line for a shot at the PPW World Tag Team Championships!
PANCHO DEF. “THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE BY WAY OF PIN FALL IN THE FINAL ROUND
After a long hiatus, the Something-to-Prove Challenge awoke at #PPW250 in the form of an elimination gauntlet and would provide a valuable opportunity for some familiar faces as well as several debutants from the most recent class of Premier Academy students with the winner earning an official spot on the main roster of PPW. Making their in-ring debut in the gauntlet would be Premier Academy students Haka, The Flying Phoenix, Ghoul, The American Beard, Ultimo León, and Pancho. They would be joined by Slappo the Clown, Zero 7.5, and The Russian Assassin who had been entered into the gauntlet based on current win-loss records. One-by-one, participants were eliminated as hopes rose for those who were able to survive closer and closer to the end. The final round came down to The Russian Assassin and PPW newcomer, Pancho, but in a shocking turn of events, as he had Pancho on the defensive, the Russian Assassin removed his mask to reveal that he was in fact the PPW World Heavyweight Champion, Matt Vine! Upon seeing this, Matt and the referee began to argue over the ruse, but this lapse in focus would prove to be the champion’s undoing, because as he turned around, Pancho delivered a missile dropkick from the top turnbuckle, catching Matt completely off guard and the newcomer was able to get a three count on the five-time champion, stunning Matt Vine and the fans in attendance! It was then announced by Premier COO, Randy Ricci, that since Pancho had defeated Matt in non-title action, if Matt could survive his four corners elimination title defense in the main event, he would have to put the title on the line against Pancho at #PPW251!
SKYE BLUE VS. WRESTLING ANDY THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
In professional wrestling, you have to be tough and at #PPW250, fan favorite Skye Blue wanted to learn from one of the toughest to ever set foot inside a PPW ring when she chose to wrestle a man who has been with PPW since the very beginning, Wrestling Andy. At first, Andy wasn’t keen on facing Skye due to their friendship and even when compassion gave way to competition, Andy was conflicted about the match, but Skye brought the fight to the veteran, but their friendly competition was spoiled when Connor Corr and Zero 3 interfered in the match, forcing the referee to throw it out.
**TAG TEAM MATCH**
“CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN” CONNOR CORR & ZERO 3 DEF. SKYE BLUE & WRESTLING ANDY BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
Having spoiled Skye and Andy’s match, Connor made it known that he did not appreciate Andy’s hesitance to wrestle Skye which Connor, a self-proclaimed male feminist and proponent of the equal treatment of women in wrestling, perceived as misogyny. Because of this perception, Connor challenged Skye and Andy to an impromptu tag team match against him and Zero 3. Seeing an opportunity, Skye and Andy gladly accepted and gave Connor and Zero more than they could chew, culminating in Skye and Andy delivering simultaneous headbutts to Connor and Zero 3’s intimate areas, resulting in Connor and Zero 3 being awarded the match by way of disqualification, but Skye and Andy were completely unfazed by the ruling, being willing to sacrifice victory in favor of the satisfaction they felt through the pain and embarrassment they had served up to Connor and his camp.
**FOUR CORNERS ELIMINATION MATCH FOR THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP**
“THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE (C) DEF. JOSÉ ACOSTA, SEMSEI, AND “MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING TO RETAIN
For over half a year, Matt Vine has reign atop Premier Pro Wrestling as the only five-time World Heavyweight Champion in the company’s near seven year history and has bested some of the very best PPW has to offer, but at #PPW250, the champion’s odds were severely cut down when he defended his title against three very hungry competitors in a four corners elimination match. Having come just short of winning the gold in previous weeks, José Acosta believed it would finally be his night, but on his heels was his now former amigo, Semsei, who had played a key part in José coming up short in his last two encounters with the champion, but the two could not afford to let their personal feud distract them from the fourth man in the match, former three-time PPW Champion, multiple time Tag Team Champion, and 2018 Challenge Pro Cup Champion, Chase Gosling, who believes that he alone is worthy of standing on the summit of Premier Pro Wrestling. Despite his impressive résumé, however, Chase’s confidence was dealt a critical blow when José was able to escape from an attempted submission by pushing off of the top rope, landing on his feet, and surprising Chase with a backslide which saw José score the first elimination of the match and left Chase in utter disbelief. Wasting no time, Semsei attempted to capitalize while José was regaining his focus, but Sem would quickly face the same fate as Chase when José was able to reverse Sem’s offense and roll backward to pin and eliminate Sem from the match. It was now down to the last two men, José Acosta and the PPW Champion, Matt Vine. With the champion all to himself, José unleashed a furious offense, but the champion was able to weather the storm and, trapping José in a pinning predicament, Matt exploited his position in the ring to utilize the ropes for added leverage, unseen to the referee who made the three count and awarded the match to the champion.
