– SINGLES MATCH –
INIESTRA DEF. ZERO 1 VIA PIN FALL
Before tangling with Matt Vine for the number one contendership later in the evening, Woodstock’s own Iniestra had an opportunity to get charged up when he faced off against Zero 1. Knowing from experience how dangerous the martial arts skills of Zero 1 can be, Iniestra employed more of a grounding tactic in an effort to keep his opponent from gaining a vertical base and it worked for a time until Zero 1 regained the upper hand and began utilizing a few underhanded tactics in order to wear Iniestra down. He couldn’t, however, keep Iniestra from flying and the Woodstock native put the competition away with a beautiful dive from the top rope.
– CAREER VS. CAREER MATCH (LOSER LEAVES PPW) –
“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. “THE SCIENCE” MARCUS SMITH VIA SUBMISSION
After months of bitter feuding, it became apparent to both Marcus Smith and Andy Anderson that the only way to put their rivalry to rest once and for all was for both to put their PPW careers on the line and that’s exactly what they did. After delivering an early eulogy to Andy earlier in the week, Marcus pulled out all the stops to make good on his promise to rid PPW of its resident “guard dog” once and for all and he came so incredibly close on several occasions, but Andy, having just as much to lose, refused to stay down. Knowing that Marcus knew his trademark style in and out, Andy decided to switch from his usual tactics and was able to trap Marcus in a cross arm breaker in the center of the ring, far away from the salvation of the ring ropes. “The Science” held out for as long as he could, but with nowhere to go, he had to choose between losing his PPW career or risking permanent damage to his arm and he chose the former, tapping out to Andy and surrendering both his PPW career and the last laugh. Before finally retreating to the locker room to begin sorting out his options of where to go now that his time in PPW has been forced into expiration, Marcus delivered a warning to the Premier Planet that they have not seen the last of him and exited the ringside area to the sound of the Premier Planet singing, “Na na na na. Na na na na. Hey hey hey. Goodbye.”
– NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE VS. INIESTRA ENDS IN A TIME LIMIT DRAW
The bitter rivalry between Matt Vine and Iniestra seems to continue spinning even more and more out of control as the weeks go on. Tonight, they stepped into the ring across from each other again to finally resolve the issue of who truly deserves to be the number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship. Even after both brought absolutely everything they had to the fight, neither was able to put the other away by the time the time limit reached its end, leaving still no resolution to who carries the rightful claim of being number one contender. However, Premier CEO Randy Ricci came to ringside and announced that at our next taping these two will square off again, this time with no time limit.
– SINGLES MATCH –
ZERO 2 DEF. LA MAGIA MASCARA VIA PIN FALL
After an elongated absence from PPW, the Las Vegas magic man, La Magia Mascara, returned and was greeted back with a match against Zero 2, also returning from an elongated absence. Incredibly, Zero 2 was able to finally put an end to the streak of losses that has plagued him since day one when he rolled Mascara up long enough for the three count, bringing Zero 2 his first victory in PPW!
– NON-TITLE SINGLES MATCH –
RONNY METRO DEF. PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON VIA PIN FALL
What was supposed to be a championship rematch between PPW champ Scott Colton and Chase Gosling turned into something completely unexpected when, as the Premier Planet awaited Chase, Randy Ricci emerged again and informed everyone, Colton included, that Chase had blown off the taping as “part of the plan” according to Chase. With no opposition for the evening, Colton was visibly disappointed, but as he began making his way to the ropes to exit the ring, familiar music began to play and to the shock of everyone in attendance, Ronny Metro emerged wearing his ring gear! Not willing to let just anyone walk in and be granted a title shot without earning it first, Randy informed Ronny that he would have a match with Colton, but only on the condition that Colton agree to it and that the match be non-title. Always willing to battle, Colton accepted and the match became official. Not appearing to have an ounce of ring rust even after being out of action for several month with an injured shoulder, Ronny unleashed a vicious assault against the champ in an effort to prove himself worthy of a future title shot, but Colton, as always, refused to go quietly and unleashed an onslaught of his own. Using his speed to his advantage, Colton was able to roll Ronny up with a sunset flip and it seemed as though he had the match in the bag, but Ronny stunned all when he reversed the pin attempt into one of his own and, thanks to a handful of the second rope, Ronny was able to pin the champ! Ronny’s celebration was short-lived, however, when Randy Ricci made the announcement that, despite pinning the champ, Ronny will now have to go back to the bottom and begin working his way back up in Premier Pro Wrestling and his first roadblock will be the one and only “Irish” Andy Anderson — news that Ronny, save to say, didn’t take well.
