Full match results from May 7, 2016 #PPW90 taping at Premier Pro Wrestling studios in Woodstock, IL and Facebook Live Post Show with Justin Barlow.
– SINGLES MATCH – “THE URBAN REBELLION” CUTTA CROSBY DEF. ZERO 3 VIA PIN FALL
In the evening’s opening contest, Cutta Crosby pit his ground-and-pound style against the agility and martial arts expertise of Zero 3 who displayed some impressive offense during the match, but a little to much in-ring celebration and showboating left Cutta with openings which he took advantage of and he was able to put his opponent away with his trademark Cutt-Throat Thrilla neckbreaker.
– SINGLES MATCH – ULYSSES S. ADAMS DEF. ZERO 1 VIA PIN FALL
Taking exception to the plethora of “U.S.A.” chants from the Premier Planet, Zero 1 wanted to make an example of the crowd favorite, Adams, who is, thus far, undefeated in Premier Pro Wrestling. Unfortunately, Zero 1 let himself get distracted by the fans rather than focusing on the task at hand which gave Adams not only a size advantage, but a psychological advantage as well and, despite several attempts to cheat, Zero 1 fell victim to one of Adams’ crushing leg drops and the American hero was able to place another feather in his undefeated cap.
– SINGLES MATCH – “TEXAS” PETE DEF. “THE SCIENCE” MARCUS SMITH VIA COUNT OUT
Riding high after knocking off two back-to-back opponents last week in what he later dubbed “The Double Header Science Fair,” “The Science” Marcus Smith entered the Premier Studio all smiles and confidence despite stepping into the ring against PPW veteran “Texas” Pete. Earning even more disdain from the Premier Planet over his brand of stand-up comedy, Marcus perhaps overlooked the competition and found himself on the defensive for a sizable portion of the match as Pete fed off of the energy of the crowd. This allowed Pete to muster enough to drop Marcus over the top rope and “The Science” had a not-so-friendly encounter with the floor below. With his bell significantly rung, Marcus was unable to answer the referee’s ten count and the match was awarded to “Texas” Pete via count out.
– SINGLES MATCH FOR THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP TO THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP – CHASE GOSLING DEF. INIESTRA VIA PIN FALL
After coming up just short in his breathtaking encounter with PPW World Champion, Scott Colton, last week, Iniestra was rewarded for his effort with another chance at becoming number one contender, but standing in his way was his old rival, Chase Gosling, fresh off a week long suspension for interfering in the main event two weeks prior. Still seething from being forced to the sidelines, Chase came back with a vengeance, wanting to not only upstage Woodstock’s own, but to become next in line for a shot at the gold. The two fought each other until both competitors could barely stand and credit goes to both for putting every ounce of effort into this one, but only one could walk away the victor and Chase Gosling was able to use Iniestra’s own momentum against him and caught Woodstock’s favorite son in a pinning predicament long enough for the ref to count to three, bringing Chase back into the main event picture here in PPW. He now goes on to this coming Saturday night to face the champion, whomever that would be after the main event between Matt Vine and champion Scott Colton
– SINGLES MATCH – “IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. THE EXECUTIONER VIA PIN FALL
Despite tipping the scales at over 300 pounds, The Executioner faced perhaps his most formidable challenge to date against ring veteran and PPW’s resident “guard dog,” Andy Anderson. Not sure of what to make of Andy’s eccentric style, The Executioner found himself in unfamiliar territory as he remained on defense for the majority of the match despite a few offensive flurries. Ever a master of psychological warfare, Andy was able to catch the super heavyweight off guard and roll him up for a pin fall victory.
– SINGLES MATCH FOR THE PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP – “THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE DEF. “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON (C) VIA DISQUALIFICATION
Another old rivalry was rekindled this past Saturday only this time the place atop the Premier mountain was on the line. Having been embroiled in a vicious feud for the better part of a year, Matt Vine and Scott Colton are two competitors who can read each other like a book and both were forced to employee styles and tactics outside of their normal repertoire in order to catch the other off guard and gain the advantage. To no one’s surprise, Vine attempted to take the easy way out on several occasions, but Colton fought to defend his title like a wild animal defending its den, forcing Vine to pull out almost every trick and maneuver from his arsenal. The match turned into a melee, however, when Vine, aiming for Colton, accidentally clotheslined the referee, leaving no one to officiate and giving Vine the opportunity to call down his buddy, Chase Gosling, to the ring and together they proceeded to beat on the champ until Iniestra came down to even the odds and he and Colton cleared the ring of Vine and Gosling. Unfortunately, that’s when the referee regained consciousness and saw Colton and Iniestra in the ring, leading him to believe that Iniestra had initiated the interference. Seeing this, he called for the bell and awarded the match to Vine via disqualification, but, since the title cannot change hands in such a circumstance, Colton remains the champion and next week he will defend that title against the new number one contender, Chase Gosling, but Matt Vine and Iniestra haven’t been left out in the cold and they will face each other in a number one contendership match!
