SLICK WILLY DEF. SERO 1 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Despite Zero 1’s greater level of in-ring experience which helped him control the pace for the majority of the match, the mysterious masked man from the Orient proved to be no match for Premier Academy standout, Slick Willy, who used his significantly larger frame to deliver a ring-shaking forward slam to pick up a victory by way of pin fall.
**SIX-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH**
NOT BAD CHAD, N.P.K., & “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS DEF. HAKA, AARON VENTURA, & ULTIMO LEÓN BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Three standouts from the most recent class of Premier Academy students were given the opportunity to prove themselves against three established PPW stars when the Polynesian warrior, Haka, teamed with Aaron Ventura and Ultimo León to take on Not Bad Chad, N.P.K., and “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers in six-man tag team action, but while the three rookies showed an impressive amount of skill and determination, the combined experience of the opposition was an obstacle they could not overcome and, with a diving sunset flip off the top rope, Bryce Akers pinned Haka to earn the victory. However, that is when the victors were thrown a curveball.
**TRIPLE THREAT MATCH**
N.P.K. DEF. NOT BAD CHAD & “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Having proven themselves against three Premier Academy standouts, N.P.K., Not Bad Chad, and Bryce Akers were then given the opportunity to prove themselves against each other when the three were entered into an impromptu triple threat match. With the three men knowing each other’s in-ring styles so well due to them coming up in the Premier Academy at the same time, the match was a sight to behold as the three threw caution to the wind in a valiant effort to be the victor, but only one could win and when Chad tried to set Bryce up for a superplex off the top rope, N.P.K. turned the maneuver into a tower of doom, sending both of his opponents crashing down to the canvas and covering Chad for the 1-2-3.
“CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN” CONNOR CORR DEF. PANCHO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Since his debut in Premier Pro Wrestling, Connor Corr has not endeared himself to the Premier Planet, but one cannot deny that, if there’s one thing the self-proclaimed favorite son of McHenry is, it’s resourceful and that resourcefulness came in handy when Connor went one-on-one against one of the fastest-rising young talents in PPW, Pancho, and, utilizing the ropes for added leverage, stole a victory out from under the young standout.
**PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“THE SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE” MATT VINE (C) VS. “THE PRINCE OF PRO WRESTLING” T.J. STEEL ENDS IN A DOUBLE DISQUALIFICATION (VINE RETAINS)
While Matt Vine may have escaped #PPW253 with the PPW World Heavyweight Championship, his loss by count out did not go unnoticed. Sensing a weakness in the champion’s armor, T.J. Steel reignited his rivalry with “Vineacus” and challenged him for the title. As customary whenever a championship is on the line in PPW, the match was contested under two-out-of-three falls. The first fall went to the challenger when T.J. stunned the champion with a shining wizard to the temple, but “Vineacus” evened the score with a piledriver. Now in sudden death, the match became even more intense with both participants throwing whatever they could at the other to try and gain the upper hand, but in the heat of battle, T.J. delivered a spear to the referee by mistake when Matt ducked out of the way. Setting up for what may very well have been the fatal blow, Matt then attempted a spear of his own, but in a moment of déjà vu, T.J. escaped the line of fire, sending Matt into the referee as the referee was trying to regain a vertical base. Having now suffered through two back-to-back spears from both participants, the referee called for the bell and ruled a double disqualification, meaning that Matt Vine was still PPW World Heavyweight Champion, but the ruling only fueled the animosity between the two and it took nearly the entire PPW roster to finally separate them when the two engaged in a post-match brawl in the ring.
**N.P.K. ADDRESSES THE PREMIER PLANET**
Once the dust had settled after the World Championship match, PPW fan favorite, N.P.K., came to the ring, having requested a few minutes of time to address the Premier Planet. Having not only bested Matt Vine by way of count out, but having also made the champion submit in the second fall of their championship match just one week prior, N.P.K. pled his case to Premier COO, Randy Ricci, and asked to be granted another opportunity at the PPW World Heavyweight Championship. Admiring N.P.K.’s heart and determination and hearing the support from the Premier Planet, Randy announced that he didn’t need any more convincing and granted N.P.K.’s request and N.P.K. will have another chance to fulfill his lifelong dream of championship glory when he takes on “The Symbol of Excellence” Matt Vine for the title at #PPW255!
SKYE BLUE DEF. WRESTLING ANDY BY WAY OF COUNT OUT
When Skye Blue was given another opportunity to name her own opponent for #PPW254, she did not need long to decide who to test her skills against. Due to their previous encounter having been thrown out due to outside interference from Connor Corr, Skye challenged her friend and mentor, Wrestling Andy, to a rematch, but while Andy accepted the challenge, he was hesitant and held back against Skye out of fear of hurting his friend, but this only motivated Skye more as she unleashed a furious offense against Andy, trying to get him to fight her and, for a time, Andy gave Skye the competition she was looking for. However, when the two ended up outside the ring, Andy’s conscience got the better of him and as the referee reached the count of nine, Andy rolled Skye back into the ring under the bottom rope, taking a count out loss and making Skye the winner. This did not sit well with Skye, however, who wanted a clear-cut resolution to the match and, as a result, Skye has challenged Andy to another match at #PPW255.
**NON-TITLE TAG TEAM GRUDGE MATCH**
JOSÉ ACOSTA & ANAKIN DEF. PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & “NINJA WARRIOR” SEMSEI BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With José Acosta having atoned for his past sins against his friend, Anakin, the former Tag Team Champions were once again united and set their sights on the reigning PPW World Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Semsei, having challenged the champions to a non-title match after Iniestra and Sem assaulted their allies, Not Bad Chad and Bryce Akers, at #PPW253. Iniestra and Sem were equally motived, however, as both now not only viewed José as a traitor to the “special people,” but also that a victory over the champions would put José and Anakin into contention for a future shot at the PPW World Tag Team Championships. With that in the back of their collective mind, the champions pulled out all the stops to eliminate the threat posed to them by Anakin and José, but the match became chaotic when all four men brought the fight to each other inside the ring at the same time. In the chaos, the champions lost track of who was was legal and when Sem covered Anakin for the three count, he thought he had brought home the victory, but what Sem didn’t realize was that, at the same time he had Anakin covered, José had Iniestra covered and that José and Iniestra, not Anakin and Sem, had been the legal men when the double pin took place, making José and Anakin the winners of the match and leaving Iniestra and Sem to lick their wounds.
