ULTIMO LEÓN VS. SLICK WILLY THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
What started as a friendly competition between two young and hungry PPW talents quickly devolved into anarchy when, as the match had just barely gotten underway, into the ring ran Iniestra and Chase Gosling who began to beatdown Ultimo León and Slick Willy. When they felt they had made their point, Iniestra and Chase informed everyone in attendance that what they had just witnessed was a mere preview of what they claimed was in store for their opponents, Anakin and José Acosta, later in the evening.
**SKYE’S CHOICE MATCH**
SKYE BLUE DEF. ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Always on the hunt for new challenges in a continual effort to better herself in the ring, Skye Blue was again given the opportunity to name her own opponent. This time, Skye chose to test her skills against Zero 2, believing him to be the most athletic of all the Zeroes, but Skye proved that she was even more athletic and delivered a flying cross-body off the top rope to pin Zero 2 and walk away with a hard-earned victory.
**TAG TEAM GRUDGE MATCH**
ANAKIN & JOSÉ ACOSTA DEF. “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & “MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Feeling confident after making an example of Slick Willy and Ultimo León earlier in the night, PPW World Tag Team Champion, Iniestra, and his partner for the evening, Chase Gosling, felt that there would be only one possible outcome of their match against former Tag Team Champions, the reunited duo of Anakin and José Acosta, but when an attempted offense resulted in a miscalculation, Iniestra found himself very nearly on the receiving end of a powerbomb from his own tag team partner. Iniestra was able to stop Chase before Chase could deliver the maneuver, but as Iniestra was still propped up on Chase’s shoulders, Anakin delivered a dropkick to Chase, sending both Chase and Iniestra down to the canvas with Iniestra taking the worst of the impact. With both of his opponents down, Anakin rolled over both men and hooked Chase’s legs for the pin and, as a result of their victory, Anakin and José have earned a match for the PPW World Tag Team Championships at #PPW257 against Iniestra and the returning Semsei!
**THREE STAGE ELIMINATION MATCH**
PANCHO LAST DEFEATS CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
In a preview of what is to come in the number one contenders match at #PPW257, a blend of three established PPW stars and three standouts from the most recent class of the Premier Academy exhibited their abilities in an elimination match with three separate stages. The first stage, a six-man tag team elimination match, saw the team of the self-proclaimed favorite son of McHenry County, Connor Corr, The American Beard, and Ventura take on the team of Pancho, “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers, and Wrestling Andy. With PPW’s most experienced veteran on their side, Pancho and “The Bone Dawg” watched as Andy achieved the first two eliminations, first taking out The American Beard followed by Ventura, but when Bryce Akers entered the match, he found himself soon eliminated by Connor thanks to some underhanded tactics. With three men gone, the match entered its second stage: a three-man tag. An interesting concept to say the least, the three-man tag consisted of two competitors being in the ring at one time while the third had to stand outside on the apron and could only enter the match if tagged in by one of the active competitors. This round saw Connor sneak away with another elimination as he used the ropes for an unfair advantage and pinned Andy, but all of Connor’s efforts would prove fruitless as Pancho delivered a missile dropkick off the top rope to pin Connor, walk away with the victory, and put some much needed steam behind him as he joins other members of the Premier roster in next week’s four stage elimination match to crown a new number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship.
**PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
N.P.K. DEF. “VINEACUS” MATT VINE BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
When N.P.K. was unsuccessful in winning the PPW World Heavyweight Championship at #PPW255, he was able to use Matt Vine’s own pride against him and got the champion to call him out for a rematch at #PPW256. With the bad blood between the two now at its boiling point, a war of attrition took place in the main event of #PPW256 that saw the challenger gain the advantage by scoring the first fall when he pinned the champion, but “Vineacus” evened the score with a piledriver to gain the second fall. Now in the third and final fall, the two men battled each other into near fall after near fall until both were almost too exhausted to stand, but no matter what one threw, the other was able to stay in the fight until Matt decided to dish out some retribution for N.P.K.’s actions against him at #PPW255 and introduced a steel chair into the ring, hitting N.P.K. across the back just as the referee regained his composure after being inadvertently knocked out thanks to a splash in the corner, resulting in the referee calling for the bell and awarding the match to N.P.K. by way of disqualification. However, since the championship cannot change hands under such circumstances, Matt Vine was able to retain the title, but as the champion had his back turned while reveling in his retention of the gold, an enraged N.P.K. picked up the chair and proceeded to change Matt out of the ring, just barely missing his target. Seeing all of this transpire, Premier C.O.O. Randy Ricci came to the ring and announced that he had had enough of chairs playing key roles in the matches between Matt Vine and N.P.K. Therefore, there will be a rematch for the title at #PPW257, but with two special stipulations. First, the two-out-of-three falls rule that applies to all championship matches in Premier Pro Wrestling will be temporarily shelved and the match will be one fall to a finish meaning that there will be no second chances and no room for error. If that weren’t enough, Randy decided that, if N.P.K. and Matt wanted to use chairs so badly, it would be granted to them, because the match will involve suspending a chair on a pole and the first man to reach it and bring it down will be fully within his rights to use it however he sees fit!
