**TAG TEAM MATCH**
“THE PRINCE OF PRO WRESTLING” TJ STEEL & “THE LOVE MACHINE” MATT LONGTIME DEF. ZERO 1 & ZERO 2 BY WAY OF PIN FALL
After a lengthy absence from PPW, the mysterious duo of Zero 1 and Zero 2, representing their home countries of Japan and Okinawa, reunited in tag team action, but their reunion would not prove easy as across the ring stood the newly united yet formidable duo of TJ Steel and Midwest wrestling veteran, Matt Longtime and, despite never having teamed prior to the match, TJ and Matt would be victorious when Matt delivered his famous Love Gun DDT to take home the win.
**FIGHT 4 A CORNER CHALLENGE**
NOT BAD CHAD DEF. CONNOR CORR, “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS, AND PANCHO IN THE FINAL ROUND TO WIN
In an all new PPW original concept match, an eclectic blend of eight rookie talents and seasoned veterans clashed for bragging rights in a two stage match known as the Fight 4 a Corner Challenge. In the first round, four one-on-one matches took place to determine who would move on to a four corners match to face the other three winners. In the first round, it would be Pancho victorious over Ventura followed by Connor Corr gaining a win over The American Beard. They would then be joined by Bryce Akers who bested The Flying Phoenix and Not Bad Chad who defeated Ultimo Leon. The four winners then tangled in a winner-take-all four corners match and it would be Not Bad Chad who would prove himself above all others when he pinned Connor after delivering an inverted cross-body from the ropes.
**TRIPLE THREAT MATCH FOR THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP**
“VINEACUS” MATT VINE (C) DEF. “MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING AND SLICK WILLY BY WAY OF COUNT OUT TO RETAIN
When their one-on-one match at #PPW262 ended in controversy, Premier COO Randy Ricci decided that both Chase Gosling and Slick Willy had proven themselves worthy of a title opportunity against the reigning five-time champion, Matt Vine, in a first-to-two-falls triple threat match. With eight world championships between them, Matt and Chase were the odds on favorites to win, but despite being the least experienced of the three, Willy surprised Chase in the first fall by scoring a pin over the former three time champ when he was able to roll Chase up with a small package after reversing an attempted bodyslam, putting Willy at an early advantage, but Chase evened the score with Willy when Willy went for a another small package, only for it to be reversed by Chase who, out of the referee’s line of sight, held the ropes for some unfair leverage. With both of his challengers now just one fall away from becoming the new champion, Matt Vine had to be resourceful if he hoped to walk out of #PPW263 with his title and he got one step closer when, after a piledriver to Willy, Chase attempted to splash Matt from the top rope, but Matt moved out of the way, causing Chase to crash into Willy instead at which point Matt threw Chase out of the ring and covered Willy to score the tying fall. Now in the fourth fall, the match became sudden death with all three men looking for that one critical opening to seize. In a bizarre twist, Chase and Willy forged a very brief alliance in an attempt to take Matt out of the equation and together the two sent the champion out of the ring with a double clothesline, but once the champion was out, Chase and Willy’s attention quickly turned back to each other. Willy momentarily gained the upper hand on Chase, but as he delivered a clothesline to knock Chase over the top rope, Willy’s own momentum carried him to the outside as well where Matt was lying in wait to deliver a Russian leg sweep to Chase into the ring apron after which he dropped Willy on his head on the apron and, right before the referee reach the count of ten, Matt crawled back into the ring as Chase and Willy were counted out, retaining his title once again.
**PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
ANAKIN & JOSE ACOSTA (C) DEF. “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & SEMSEI BY WAY OF PIN FALL TO RETAIN
Having “worked the system” at #PPW262, Iniestra and Semsei found themselves back in the number one contender’s seat as they stepped up to face their longtime rivals, the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Anakin and Jose Acosta. The self-proclaimed “special people” gained an early advantage when, as the referee was distracted trying to keep Jose on the apron, Iniestra and Sem executed a double team to Anakin and then distracted Jose, allowing Iniestra to pin Anakin for the first fall, but the champions answered right back with Anakin rolled Sem up with a schoolboy for the second fall. It was now do-or-die for both the champions and their challengers, but when Anakin and Jose successfully delivered a double team maneuver to Iniestra, they picked up the decisive final fall and were declared the winners. However, after the bell had rung, it came to be understood that Iniestra had not been the legal man and while the decision still stands and Anakin and Jose are still the Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Sem have been granted a rematch for the titles in two weeks at #PPW265.
