PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “VINEACUS” MATT VINE DEF. “KING LEÓN” TRENT TAYLOR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With an opportunity to become a dual champion looming, five-time PPW Champion Matt Vine sought an early head of steam before going into the main event tag team tournament when he went one-on-one with a recent newcomer to PPW, the hungry and brash “King León” Trent Taylor who, through sheer force of will, continued to stave off defeat at the hands of “Vineacus,” so much so that the Premier Planet began to take notice and, seeing the amount of heart he was putting into the match, began to get behind Trent, but even with new found respect from the Premier Planet, Trent was unable to escape when Matt rolled him up and used a handful of Trent’s tights for some added leverage, scoring the pin. In spite of the loss, however, it seems that Trent Taylor has earned the respect of the Premier Planet and proven that he is capable of standing toe-to-toe with the best that Premier Pro Wrestling has to offer.
**PARTNER VS. PARTNER**
JOSÉ ACOSTA VS ANAKIN THROWN OUT DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
With their next challengers still yet to be determined in the main event, PPW World Tag Team Champions Anakin and José Acosta engaged in friendly competition when they faced each other one-on-one in a true-to-definition seesaw contest that was fast-paced and tested the endurance and ingenuity of both participants, but neither man would be able to prove himself over the other, because just as it seemed the match was about to reach its climax, it was interrupted by the former Tag Team Champions and Anakin & José’s bitter rivals, Iniestra and Semsei, who stormed the ring and began a beatdown on the champions, forcing the referee to throw the match out and sending a clear message to the champions that, no matter the outcome of the tag team tournament, the issues between them are far from resolved.
“MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING VS. SLICK WILLY ENDS IN A DOUBLE PIN
When Slick Willy pulled off a victory over former three-time PPW Champion Chase Gosling back at #PPW259, Chase took out his frustrations on Willy after the match until T.J. Steel ran in to make the save. Now, “Little” Willy would be given a chance to seek retribution when he faced Chase one-on-one, but victory would elude both competitors when both men’s shoulders were counted down for the 1-2-3, leading to the match being ruled a draw by way of a double pin. However, rather than simply leaving things as they were, Premier COO Randy Ricci saw an opportunity and decided that both men had proven themselves worthy of a main event spot and now both go into #PPW263 with an opportunity at PPW’s top prize when they compete in a first-to-two-falls triple threat match against PPW Champion “Vineacus” Matt Vine for the PPW World Heavyweight Championship!
**RANDOM DRAWING SINGLE ELIMINATION TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT FOR AN OPPORTUNITY AT THE PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS**
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & “THE AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR” SEMSEI DEF. NOT BAD CHAD & PANCHO IN THE FINAL ROUND BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With no legitimate number one contenders to Anakin and José Acosta’s PPW World Tag Team Championships, a unique concept match took place in the main event to determine who would be next in line to face the champs. The rules of this single elimination tournament would be as follows:
- Participants drew numbers at random before the taping.
- Numbers one and two would team up to take on the team of numbers three and four to start the tournament.
- When one participant was eliminated, his/her partner would remain in the match and have to compete under handicap rules.
- If the lone participant was eliminated, a new randomly drawn team would enter the match to begin a new tag team match, but if the lone participant was able to eliminate a member of the opposing team, he/she would then form a team with the eliminated’s tag team partner against two new opponents.
- The tournament would continue until just two teams remained and those two teams would compete for an opportunity at the PPW World Tag Team Championships.
Kicking off the tournament at the unenviable first draw would be PPW’s current king of the mountain, World Heavyweight Champion “Vineacus” Matt Vine, but in a true odd couple pairing, “Vineacus’s” partner, entering at number two, turned out to be none other than PPW fan favorite Skye Blue. Despite their differences and outspoken disdain for one another, Matt and Skye proved to be a formidable duo in the early stages of the tournament, first eliminating the team of The American Beard and Phoenix and then eliminating the team of Ultimo León and “AR-15” Alex Ryan, but luck ran out for Skye and Matt when, thanks to a handful of trunks, Skye’s old rival, Connor Corr, was able to eliminated her from the tournament, leaving Matt to face Connor and Connor’s partner, “The American Ninja Warrior” Semsei, alone, culminating in the champion being eliminated by Sem when Connor took out Matt’s knee during an attempted piledriver, enabling Sem to score the pin. With Skye Blue and Matt Vine now out of the tournament, Connor and Sem awaited their next opponents who were revealed to be another odd couple pairing. This time, it would be “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers teaming with Semsei’s own tag team partner, “El Mero Mero” Iniestra, but in a moment of ingenuity, Iniestra and Sem turned on their own partners and eliminated both Connor and Bryce from the tournament. Per the rules of the tournament, this meant that now Iniestra and Sem would be joined as a team heading into the final round where, despite a valiant effort from their opponents, Not Bad Chad and Pancho, Iniestra and Sem were able to execute a double team on Pancho to pick up the victory and earn a chance to reclaim what they believe to rightfully be their PPW World Tag Team Championships.
