LITTLE WILLY DEF. ULTIMO LEÓN BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Due to their one-on-one match being interrupted by Iniestra and Chase Gosling at #PPW256, Premier Academy standouts, Little Willy and Ultimo León, were granted a rematch to see who the better wrestler was between them and, despite his moniker, Little Willy utilized his size advantage to deliver the Little Willy Slam to Ultimo León for the win.
**EVERY-MAN-FOR-HIMSELF FOUR STAGE NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH**
LITTLE WILLY DEF. “THE SCIENCE” MARCUS SMITH BY WAY OF PIN FALL IN THE FINAL ROUND
In yet another exciting innovation from the minds behind Premier Pro Wrestling, a brand new concept match was introduced at #PPW257 that involved not one, not two, not three, but four consecutive stages! Stage one would be an over-the-top-rope battle royal. When six competitors were left in the ring the match would become a six-person tag team elimination match. Once three competitors were eliminated, the match would turn into a three-person elimination tag match in which two competitors would be in the ring at one time and the third would have to wait his/her turn on the apron to be tagged in by an active participant in order to join the match. When another participant was eliminated, the final two would go one-on-one in the final round with the winner earning an opportunity at the PPW World Heavyweight Championship at #PPW258. Despite having already competed in the opening contest, Little Willy stunned many by being one of the last two men standing and, thanks to another Little Willy Slam, Willy scored the final fall over PPW’s resident “comedian,” “The Science” Marcus Smith, to win the match and be crowned the new number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship!
**TRIPLE THREAT MATCH**
“MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING DEF. “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS AND PANCHO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With three reigns as PPW World Heavyweight Champion and multiple reigns as PPW World Tag Team Champion under his belt, Chase Gosling is never short on confidence and self-assurance, but all of Chase’s experience and accolades were put to the test when he faced off against two young and hungry competitors in “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers and Panco. However, try as they might, Chase was too much for Bryce and Pancho to overcome and as Bryce leapt off of the top rope for an arial offense, Chase caught him in the gut with a hard knee strike, knocking the wind out of “The Bone Dawg” and bringing Chase a victory by way of pin fall.
N.P.K. DEF. PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “VINEACUS” MATT VINE BY WAY OF PIN FALL
When Matt Vine and N.P.K. decided to introduce weapons into their heated rivalry, Premier COO Randy Ricci drew a line in the sand and said that if the two wanted to use weapons so badly, they would have one and only one fully sanctioned opportunity to do so and he signed a match between the two for #PPW257 with the stipulation that a single chair would be suspended over one corner of the ring. The first man to reach it and bring it down would be free to utilize it against his opponent however he saw fit. The match would also be one-fall-to-a-finish, meaning that neither participant would be able to leave anything to chance and that one misstep could mean the difference between victory or painful defeat. In the end, N.P.K. was able to reverse an attempted piledriver from the champion and, with a DDT, drove Matt head first into the chair which was laying on the canvas, knocking the champ out and giving N.P.K. the win by way of pin fall. However, it seems that N.P.K.’s enthusiasm got the better of him, because as he signed the contract for the match, he failed to read through the terms and conditions thoroughly and did not realize that, due to the match being a single fall contest and not two-out-of-three falls, the PPW World Heavyweight Championship was not on the line, meaning that Matt Vine would remain atop his throne, much to the understated disappointment of N.P.K.
**PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & “NINJA WARRIOR” SEMSEI (C) VS. JOSÉ ACOSTA & ANAKIN THROWN OUT
With a non-title victory over the Tag Team Champions behind them, former champs Anakin and José Acosta finally seemed poised to win back the titles, especially with many people wondering if the champions could keep the necessary focus with Semsei’s nationally televised appearance on American Ninja Warrior coming up on Monday July 8th, and they got their opportunity to reclaim the titles in a match where numerous different styles clashed to create a main event overflowing with excitement, but when the match got out of control, all four men wound up outside the ring and when the referee could no longer maintain order, the match was thrown out, meaning that Iniestra and Sensei are still your PPW World Tag Team Champions. However, it was announced that the challengers would get another opportunity at the titles at #PPW258 and the stakes could not be higher since, after over a year of not seeing his children due to personal reasons, José will be competing with them looking on from ringside.
