– SINGLES MATCH –
“TEXAS” PETE DEF. ZERO 1 VIA PIN FALL
In the evening’s opening contest, crowd favorite “Texas” Pete squared off against Zero 1 in what one might think would’ve been a shorter matchup given Pete’s much greater in-ring experience. However, Zero 1 put on an impressive and some might even say surprising display of athleticism and he was able to stand toe-to-toe with Pete for the better part of 20 minutes, utilizing a combination of martial arts, submission techniques, and even a few underhanded tactics. Pete was too savvy, however, and was able too put Zero 1 down long enough for the three count.
– NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH (NO TIME LIMIT) –
“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE VS. INIESTRA ENDED IN A NO CONTEST DUE TO OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE
After failing to meet their 30 minute time limit last week, bitter rivals Matt Vine and Iniestra were granted a rematch, this time with no time limit to stand in the way of an official winner being declared and the dispute surrounding who had the right to be next in line for a shot at the PPW World Heavyweight Championship finally being put to rest. With no time limit in place, the two were able to pace themselves and conserve energy, saving it up and releasing it with exciting and innovative offensive flurries, making this one of, if not the most memorable clash to date between the two. In the end, after battling for nearly 40 minutes like two gladiators fighting for their very lives, both had exhausted just about everything they had and it was Matt Vine who found himself with the advantage, but just as he was about to pin Iniestra, Chase Gosling stormed the ring and proceeded to attack both competitors, forcing the referee to rule a no contest and ruining what had, up to that point, been an incredible matchup. Chase wouldn’t have the last laugh on the two though and, in a bizarre turn of events, Vine and Iniestra wound up working together to rid the ring of the intruder. Once Chase had been chased off (no pun intended), the two met face-to-face inside the ring and, knowing that they had given the Premier Planet a truly memorable match, the two shared a handshake in what appeared to be affirmation that both, while far from being friends, had earned the respect of the other.

“IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON DEF. RONNY METRO VIA PIN FALL
Despite pinning World Heavyweight Champion Scott Colton in their impromptu non-title matchup last week, Ronny Metro was forced to the bottom of the PPW ladder and now must earn his way back to the top and his first obstacle would be “Irish” Andy Anderson, fresh off of a huge moral victory last week when he retired his longtime rival, “The Science” Marcus Smith. Seeming to care more about what the Premier Planet had to say about him than the task at hand, Ronny allowed his focus to be deterred which Andy fed into in order to gain the psychological advantage and he carried it until Ronny was able to catch him off guard and from there the two traded blows until Andy, utilizing, his veteran instinct was able to cover Ronny. Ronny was able to get his foot on the bottom rope, but the referee’s view was obstructed and the match was awarded to Andy via pin fall. Ronny was furious at the decision and let his frustration be known through a vicious blindsided assault on Andy. When Ronny had finished making his point, he left Andy laying as a limp pile in the middle of the ring.

CHASE GOSLING DEF. “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON (C) VIA DISQUALIFICATION
For over a month now, the mind games of Chase Gosling have been eating away at the focus of PPW Champion, Scott Colton, like a virus. After ditching their match at the last minute last week, Chase returned to the Premier Studio, fully confident that he had worn down the champ’s psyche enough to finally seize the title. He was in for a shock though as Colton attacked as if he had been possessed, making Chase’s task more difficult than anticipated. This forced Chase to seek out a new method of getting one over on the champ, but ever resourceful, Chase had yet another trick up his sleeve. Taking a chair from the ringside area, Chase seemed intent on using it on Colton until the referee was able to wrestle it out of his hands, but as the referee was handing the chair down to the ring announcer, Chase took the opportunity to grab another chair and, taking a page from the late Eddie Guerrero, he used it to hit the mat, quickly tossed it to Colton, and fell to the mat, acting as if he had been hit. Seeing this, the referee immediately concluded that Colton had used the chair on Chase and called for a disqualification against the champ, meaning that Chase has once again won a significant battle, but it still remains to be seen who will win the war.
