“THE BONE DAWG” BRYCE AKERS DEF. PANCHO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
In the opening contest, two of PPW’s rising stars collided when Pancho took on “The Bone Dawg” Bryce Akers in one-on-one action. Pancho, cocky as ever thanks to his time spent with the former Tag Team Champions, Iniestra and Semsei, perhaps overlooked his competition, because “The Bone Dawg” took advantage of a lapse in Pancho’s focus and utilized his ariel ability to execute a diving sunset flip off the top turnbuckle to roll Pancho up for the pin fall.
NOT BAD CHAD DEF. ULTIMO BY WAY OF PIN FALL
In an exhibition match featuring two of PPW’s young standouts, Not Bad Chad faced Ultimo in some friendly competition which saw an even exchange of momentum throughout the contest until Ultimo attempted a springboard maneuver off the ropes, but was instead greeted with a well-placed dropkick to the midsection which knocked the wind out of him and enabled Chad to pick up a victory by way of pin fall.
“THE AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR” SEMSEI VS. TIM CASTLE ENDS IN A TIME LIMIT DRAW
One week after their opening round match in the King Kong Bundy Memorial Tournament ended in a time limit draw, resulting in both men being eliminated from the tournament, Semsei issued a challenge to Premier Academy standout Tim Castle for a rematch with a twenty minute time limit. Sem’s distinct experience advantage made him the heavy favorite in the match, but Tim showed a tremendous amount of fighting spirit as he seemed unintimidated by the American Ninja Warrior finalist and continually stunned Sem with his refusal to stay down, but as the clocked ticked down, both men became desperate to find that one crucial opening they would need to secure victory. However, neither man was able to score a decision before lightning struck twice and the time limit, once again, ran out on the match. Clearly frustrated by the outcome, Sem refused to shake Tim’s hand after the match and, when Tim turned his back, Sem blindsided the young standout from behind and left him laying.
D’MARCEO DEF. CONNOR CORR BY WAY OF DISQUALIFICATION
Out to prove that he is, as he claims, the top star in Premier Pro Wrestling, the self-proclaimed favorite son of McHenry County, Connor Corr, went toe-to-toe with Premier Academy standout D’Marceo and stole a victory by placing his feet on the ropes out of the referee’s line of sight, but Premier C.O.O. Randy Ricci came to ringside to address the situation and informed Connor that he had witnessed Connor’s trickery and, as a result, Randy reversed the referee’s decision and awarded the match to D’Marceo. The ruling infuriated Connor who, as the taping was returning from intermission, interrupted the pre-match announcements to issue a challenge to D’Marceo to meet him again at #PPW278.
**PPW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“MR. ELECTRICITY” CHASE GOSLING & WOLFMAN HUCK VS. ANAKIN & JOSÉ ACOSTA (C) ENDS IN A DOUBLE DISQUALIFICATION
The odd but effective pairing of Chase Gosling and the three hundred and sixty pound Alaskan wild man, Wolfman Huck, may have started out on shaky ground, but have managed to tear a path of destruction through PPW on their way to earning an opportunity to challenge for the World Tag Team Championships. At a combined six hundred plus pounds, the challengers would indeed be a challenge for the reigning champions, Anakin and José Acosta, whose title reign appeared to be in jeopardy and Chase and Huck seemed poised to dethrone them, but during the course of the match the growing animosity between the two teams boiled over and an all-out brawl began which the referee quickly lost control of, leaving him no choice but to call for the bell and rule the match a double disqualification. Anakin and José retained the Tag Team titles as a result, but because they did not defeat the challengers, Chase and Huck have been given another chance to claim the Tag Team Championships at #PPW278.
**PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH**
“EL MERO MERO” INIESTRA DEF. “THE MODERN DAY GLADIATOR” “VINEACUS” MATT VINE (C) BY WAY OF PIN FALL
In the finals of the inaugural King Kong Bundy Memorial Tournament at #PPW276, Iniestra not only won the tournament, but also pinned the PPW World Heavyweight Champion, Matt Vine, to do so. Now, with a pin fall victory over the champion, Iniestra stepped into #PPW277 with a guaranteed title shot and looked to capitalize on the momentum he gained the week prior, but Matt Vine was equally determined to defend his record-breaking year-long fifth reign as PPW Champion and put himself in the lead by scoring the first fall, but Iniestra reached into his bag of tricks in the second fall and took advantage of the referee’s obstructed line of sight in order to put his feet on the ropes to tie the score at one fall a piece. Having been through numerous two-out-of-three falls championship matches during his reign and seizing victory in the third fall over a wide variety of challengers, many believed that Matt Vine was on his way to adding one more week to his nearly thirteen months as champion, but in a shocking turn of events, Pancho appeared at ringside along with Semsei, who appeared to have a falling out with Iniestra several weeks back, but together with Pancho, Sem was able to divert the referee’s attention while the other man interfered on Iniestra’s behalf, turning the match into a three-on-one barrage and this interference became the deciding factor in its outcome as Iniestra capitalized on the situation to deliver the final necessary blow to the champion and, just as he did at #PPW276, Iniestra pinned Matt Vine to become the new PPW World Heavyweight Champion for the second time, ending Vine’s historic title reign in one of the most shocking moments in PPW history!
