JOSÉ ACOSTA DEF. PANCHO (W/ “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA) BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Kicking off a fully loaded card at #PPW274 was a clash between two rivals with a long score to settle when the protégé of Iniestra and Semsei, Pancho, went one-on-one against one half of the PPW World Tag Team Champions, José Acosta. Despite José’s experience advantage and his status as one half of the top team in PPW’s tag team division, Pancho entered the match with the advantage of having Iniestra in his corner cheering him on. Not surprisingly, Iniestra eventually tried to utilize his presence to tip the scales in Pancho’s favor, but a miscommunication between the two saw their plans backfire as José took advantage of an argument between the two to roll Pancho up for the win.
**TAG TEAM MATCH**
NOT BAD CHAD & “THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS VS. D’MARCEO & TIM CASTLE ENDS IN A DOUBLE COUNT OUT
In a tag team showcase, two of the Premier Academy’s top standouts stepped into the ring to earn their stripes against two of PPW’s more seasoned competitors when Tim Castle and D’Marceo took on Not Bad Chad and “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers. As the two teams traded momentum, confusion took over the match as all four men became involved, leaving Chad to pick up a pin over Tim. However, the two were not the legal men in the match at the time of the pin fall. The referee quickly realized his mistake and signaled to the time keeper to not ring the bell as the match had, in fact, not concluded, but the mix-up caused both teams to assume the match was over and, as they stood outside the ring congratulating each other on a hard fought contest, they were deaf to the referee making the ten count, resulting in both teams being counted out.
“MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING DEF. WOLFMAN HUCK BY WAY OF PIN FALL
At #PPW273, Chase Gosling cost the three hundred and sixty pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck, a chance to potentially become PPW World Heavyweight Champion by getting Huck disqualified during his match with PPW Champion, Matt Vine. Chase quickly revealed that he was not without motive and offered Huck the chance to meet him in the ring one-on-one, but under one condition. Should Chase defeat Huck, Huck would have to team up with Chase in the same night to face Iniestra and Semsei for a shot at the PPW World Tag Team Championships and that is precisely what happened. Despite giving up over a hundred pounds to the big Alaskan, Chase rolled out of the way as Huck was in midair, ready to deliver a big splash, causing Huck to crash into the canvas at which point Chase capitalized and rolled up the big man for the 1-2-3. Per the stipulation, Huck would now have to team up with Chase to face Iniestra and Semsei for a chance at the World Tag Team Championships later in the night.
CONNOR CORR DEF. THE AMERICAN BEARD BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Ever confident in his belief that he is Premier Pro Wrestling’s top draw, Connor Corr entered the Premier Studio ready for competition against the red, white, and blue clad American Beard and Connor would be successful thanks to a bouncing splash off the top rope. Connor, however, was to satisfied with just one victory and began to gloat about how he would topple anyone put in his way.
ULTIMO LEÓN DEF. CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF PIN FALL
Hearing Connor’s comments, Premier C.O.O. Randy Ricci came to ringside, but he did not come alone. As Randy addressed Connor, he presented Ultimo León as Connor’s new opponent, giving Connor the chance to prove his claims. However, lighting would not strike twice for the self-proclaimed favorite son of McHenry County as Connor attempted to attack Ultimo León on the apron only to be met with a shoulder to the gut immediately followed by a sunset flip into a pin.
**TAG TEAM MATCH FOR A SHOT AT THE PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP**
“MR. ELECTRICITY” & WOLFMAN HUCK DEF. “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA & “THE AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR” SEMSEI BY WAY OF PIN FALL
One might have believed that the former Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Semsei, would have had the distinct advantage going into their #1 contenders match against Chase Gosling and Wolfman Huck due to their much greater experience as a team and the animosity between Chase and Huck, but in a shocking turn of events, Chase and Huck pulled off what many have dubbed an upset over the former Tag Champions when Iniestra attempted to deliver an elbow off the top rope as Huck covered Sem in the ring only for Huck to move, causing Iniestra to inadvertently deliver the elbow to Sem. Chase then took advantage of Iniestra’s momentary lapse in concentration to eject him from the ring, allowing Huck to cover Sem for the pin fall, earning him and Chase an opportunity at the Tag Team Championships, but the bigger story may be what occurred after the match as the final moments of the match led to a heated argument between Iniestra and Sem which saw the two nearly come to blows. Seeing an opportunity, Randy Ricci announced that, if the two wanted to fight so badly, they would be given the chance after the intermission, but Randy raised the stakes by announcing that the winner of the match would earn a shot at the richest prize in Premier Pro Wrestling, the World Heavyweight Championship.
**#1 CONTENDERS MATCH FOR A SHOT AT THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP**
“THE AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR” SEMSEI DEF. “EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA BY WAY OF PIN FALL
With a bit of time to rest and cool their heads, Iniestra and Semsei re-entered the ring, this time not as partners, but as opponents. With bad blood and a chance to become PPW World Heavyweight Champion now between the two, Iniestra and Sem did not hesitate in taking the fight to each other, both blaming the other for their loss in the previous contest. Friendship and multiple reigns as Tag Team Champions seemed to be put completely in the past as the two traded offense throughout the match until Iniestra sprang off of the ropes, looking for an arial offense only to be met with a devastating powerslam from Sem which enabled Sem to cover his now apparently former tag team partner for the pin, earning a chance to now become the top dog in PPW.
**FIRST-TO-TWO-FALLS TRIPLE THREAT MATCH FOR THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP**
“THE MODERN DAY GLADIATOR” “VINEACUS” MATT VINE (C) DEF. “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON AND ANAKIN TO RETAIN
Just one night before being able to celebrate one full year as PPW World Heavyweight Champion, Matt Vine’s reign was put in jeopardy when he put the title on the line against one half of the PPW World Tag Team Champions, Anakin, who had fought the champion to a sixty minute time limit draw at #PPW272 and a ghost from Matt Vine’s past in the form of the returning former PPW Champion, Scott Colton, stepping back into the PPW ring after a two year absence. With three men in the match, the winner would be decided by the man who could be the first to score two falls over his opponents. This also meant that Matt Vine would not have to be involved in any of the falls to lose his title, putting the champion at a distinct disadvantage. Knowing that they had to work together to take the champion out of the equation, Scott and Anakin formed a temporary alliance, but once Matt had been ejected from the ring to the outside, the challengers put on an exciting display of agility and mat wrestling ability which wowed the Premier Planet, but the champion chose his timing wisely and, after letting the challengers wear each other down, Matt re-entered the match and delivered a piledriver to Anakin to score the critical first fall. With their chances slipping, Scott and Anakin would be forced to increase their offense in order to catch up to the champion and the second fall would be decided when Anakin delivered a sliced bread style maneuver to the champion, kicking off of Scott for an added boost of arial momentum. Now the only man in the match without a fall, the former champion, Scott Colton, would have to score back-to-back falls if he hoped to leave the Premier Studio with the World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder, but if there is one thing “The Human Video Game” proved during his past time on the Premier roster it’s that, when the chips are down, he rises up and Scott was able to tie the score with Anakin and Matt by using his agility to fly off the top rope to deliver a frog splash to the champion. With the match now in the fourth fall and the champion’s early advantage now eroded, victory and the title would go to the man who could reach down and find the drive to seize the final fall and it seemed that Anakin might finally accomplish his ultimate goal of winning the title when he delivered a stunning flip piledriver to Scott, but Anakin would have no time to capitalize as Matt took advantage and put Anakin down for the final fall, retaining his title and earning his three hundred and sixty fifth day as World Heavyweight Champion. However, after the match, in a are display of sportsmanship, Matt took a microphone, asked both men to get back into the ring, and publicly acknowledged the efforts of both, even raising both men’s hands as the Premier Planet showed great appreciation to all three for an exciting and hard fought main event.
