**TRIPLE THREAT MATCH**
N.P.K. DEF. “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS & PANCHO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
In an opening contest featuring three of PPW’s young and hungry talents, N.P.K., who has spent the summer chasing the PPW World Heavyweight Championship, bested two formidable opponents in “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers and Pancho after seizing on an opportunity and turning an attempted superplex by “The Bone Dawg” on Pancho into a tower of doom which enabled N.P.K. to pick up the pin and regain some steam just one week after just barely coming up short in his quest for the title.
“AR-15” ALEX RYAN VS. SKYE BLUE THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
Earlier in the week, it had been announced that PPW fan favorite, Skye Blue, would go one-on-one against “America’s Sweetheart” Rebecca Reece. However, when it came time for the contest, it wasn’t Rebecca, but rather “King León” Trent Taylor who appeared through the curtain and proceeded to announce that Rebecca would not be in attendance. However, Trent was not without company and offered up his protégé, Alex Ryan, as a substitute to go head-to-head with Skye, but when he sensed that Alex may not have what it took to finish Skye off, Trent injected himself into the contest and he and Alex began a two-on-one assault against Skye until Wrestling Andy ran into the ring for the save. Irate that Alex and Trent would show such disrespectful behavior, Andy and Skye challenged the two to an impromptu tag team match.
**TAG TEAM MATCH**
SKYE BLUE & WRESTLING ANDY DEF. “AR-15” ALEX RYAN & “KING LEÓN” TRENT TAYLOR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With the odds now evened, Trent and Alex struggled to match in-ring abilities with the formidable tandem of Skye and Andy, resorting to sneaky tactics in order to gain an unfair advantage, but despite their efforts, Trent and Alex could not overcome the opposition and Andy sealed their fate when he delivered and Andybomb to Trent while Skye subdued Alex on the opposite side of the ring, gaining payback for the disrespect shown to Skye in the previous contest.
SEMSEI DEF. JOSÉ ACOSTA BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Despite coming up short in their effort to reclaim the PPW World Tag Team Championships, former champs, Iniestra and Semsei, were not about to simply let new champs, José Acosta and Anakin, walk away after taking their “women” (AKA the PPW World Tag Team titles) and intended to prove why their heated rivalry is far from over by defeating the new champs in separate one-on-one matches with partners barred from ringside. The first match would be contested between the current American Ninja Warrior participant, Semsei, and José who has been riding an emotional and professional high ever since regaining the championships with Anakin and being reunited with his young children after a year of personal struggles. With both men reaching new heights on their road to success, the momentum was traded back and forth into a stalemate, but despite the declaration that tag team partners would be barred from ringside, Iniestra crept down to ringside and was able to hide under the ring undetected by the referee. While Semsei distracted the referee while he and José were tied up in the ropes, Iniestra emerged from under the ring, wielding a chain and used the chain to strike José in the face, knocking him out and enabling Semsei to pick up the win.
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. ANAKIN BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With one win now under their belts, former Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Semsei, were looking to make their record 2-0 for the night when Iniestra faced Anakin one-on-one, but seeing his partner robbed in the previous match, Anakin was determined to make Iniestra and Sem pay for the injustice. However, the former champs were able to make lightning strike twice when, as Iniestra and Anakin were tied up in the ropes, Sem emerged from under the ring and hit Anakin with the same chain used to knock out José in the match before, allowing the self-proclaimed “special people” to pick up back-to-back wins over their bitter rivals.
“MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING DEF. VENTURA, ULTIMO LEÓN, BROTHER DAVE, & NOT BAD CHAD
One week after being confronted by T.J. Steel during a post-match attack on Slick Willy, Chase Gosling decided to send a message to “The Prince of Pro Wrestling” by holding what Chase dubbed the “Gosling Gambit.” Wanting to show T.J. he is not afraid of competition, Chase challenged four members of the Premier roster to meet him in a gauntlet style match. The first challenge would come from the Premier Academy in the form of the masked Ventura, but Chase, a former three-time PPW World Heavyweight Champion, made short work of Ventura then awaited his next challenger who was revealed to be another recent addition to the Premier roster, Ultimo León, who fell victim to a leg drop across the back of the neck, putting him out of the Gambit and bringing in the next participant who turned out to be another recent product of the Premier Academy, Brother Dave, who found himself on the receiving end of a top rope splash from the two hundred and fifty pound Chase, making Chase 3-0 in the Gambit and leaving only on challenger left to participate. To Chase’s chagrin, his final opponent was revealed to be Not Bad Chad who has spent the past year making a name for himself in PPW and has earned his way into the main event picture on several occasions, going toe-to-toe with the likes of Iniestra & Semsei and World Champion Matt Vine. With a well of big match experience behind him, Chad’s strong showing against Chase was indeed impressive. However, it would not be enough to overcome an equally determined Chase who seized on an opportunity and delivered a leg drop across the back of Chad’s neck to win the Gambit and send a powerful message to his opponent for #PPW261, T.J. Steel.
**PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“VINEACUS” MATT VINE (C) DEF. BRANDON WOLFE BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
With another opportunity to become the face of Premier Pro Wrestling in his sights, “Kentucky’s Greatest High Flyer” Brandon Wolfe knew he had to make the most of the chance if he were to dethrone arguably the most dominant champion in PPW history, “Vineacus” Matt Vine, in the 2-out-of-3 falls main event and it seemed his chances were good when he was able to utilize his ariel prowess to throw the champion’s focus off and Wolfe scored the crucial first fall with a heavy impact swinging neckbreaker that subdued the champion long enough for Wolfe to get the three count, but Matt answered back and tied the score with his own swinging inverted neckbreaker which brought the match into the third and final fall where both competitors fought tooth and nail for momentum until, in a surprising move, N.P.K. ran into the ring and began attacking Matt with a leather strap, causing the champion to retain the title by way of disqualification, but leaving him reeling in revenge for him doing the same thing to N.P.K. just one week prior. With chaos erupting in the ring, Premier C.O.O., Randy Ricci, intervened and announced that next week at #PPW261, after two back-to-back weeks of assaults with straps, Matt Vine will defend the PPW Championship against N.P.K. in a match made famous by the legendary Wahoo McDaniel over half a century ago — an Indian strap match. The two will be tethered at the wrist with an eighteen foot long leather strap. The goal of the match will be for one man to subdue his opponent enough to be able to touch all four corners of the ring in sequence. The first man to accomplish the task will be declared the winner and will leave #PPW261 as PPW World Heavyweight Champion.
