Full match results from June 25, 2016 #PPW97 taping at Premier Pro Wrestling studios in Woodstock, IL and Post Show Wrap Up with Justin Barlow.
– SINGLES MATCH –
ZERO 2 DEF. ZERO 3 VIA PIN FALL
In a bizarre pairing, the evening’s opening contest pitted two Zeros against one another — Zero 2 and Zero 3. Being very evenly matched in martial arts and mat skill, the Zeros traded offense throughout the matchup, but it was Zero 2 who seized victory by capitalizing on a fast paced momentum exchange and rolling his opponent up for the 1, 2, 3, bringing Zero 2 his second victory after falling short since day one.

ULYSSES S. ADAMS DEF. ZERO 1 VIA PIN FALL
With Independence Day on the horizon, American pride was on full display as Ulysses S. Adams arrived for competition in the Premier Studio and he faced a familiar opponent in Zero 1. Despite Zero 1’s frequent attempts at shortcuts, U.S.A. once again overcame the obstacles and delivered a heavy duty American made leg drop to put Zero 1 away and walked out with the Stars and Stripes waving proudly.

“THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE DEF. INIESTRA VIA PIN FALL
After leaving the Premier Planet breathless during their clash just one week ago before the match was thrown out due to outside interference, Matt Vine and Iniestra had a lot to live up to as they stepped into the ring one last time to finally determine who had the right to be next in line for a shot at the company’s top prize. In a rare display, the two showed mutual respect for one another by shaking hands before the action got underway. In an attempt to not only be crowned number one contender, but to also outdo their match from the week before, the two left it all in the ring and some might say once again stole the show. Near fall after near fall and countless moments sure to become instant classics finally lead up to the deciding moment. With a split second of an opening, Vine caught Iniestra in a victory roll, creating a pinning predicament which Iniestra could not escape from and it was Vine who scored the decisive victory in this final encounter, making him the new number one contender to the PPW World Heavyweight Championship! Just as last week, however, Vine wouldn’t allow Iniestra to leave without first shaking then raising his opponent’s hand. Then, doing something no one in the Premier Planet ever expected to see, the two hugged it out in the middle of the ring, knowing that they had just delivered two back-to-back instant classics.

RONNY METRO DEF. “IRISH” ANDY ANDERSON VIA PIN FALL
After brutalizing Andy Anderson after Andy pinned him last week, Ronny Metro was determined to prove to everyone in attendance that he could beat Andy between bells and claim an official victory. Just like last week, however, Ronny seemed more focused on the jeers coming from the Premier Planet than on the task at hand and Andy took full advantage of Ronny’s distracted focus in the early going. Ronny didn’t take the punishment for too long though and he began making good on his promises to take Andy out of the equation, but letting his emotions get the better of him proved to be a stumbling block for Ronny and it allowed Andy to capitalize on numerous occasions. A misstep on the part of Andy proved to be the opening Ronny needed, however, and, thanks in large part to placing his feet on the ropes for added leverage, Ronny delivered on his promise to defeat Andy. Winning the match wasn’t enough for Ronny though and, in a repeat of last week, he began assaulting Andy, even using Andy’s own chain to choke him out then put the final exclamations on the situation with a splash from the top rope and a piledriver. Once Ronny had finally left the ringside area, it took five men to finally drag Andy to the back to receive medical attention.

CHASE GOSLING DEF. “THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON (C) VIA PIN FALL (NEW CHAMPION)
Promising to bring his “big plan” full circle, Chase Gosling stepped into the ring with the champ, Scott Colton, with whom he has been playing mind games for over a month. After being caught off guard by Colton’s increased tenacity one week ago, Chase attempted to keep the match at a slow pace and worked the majority of his offense from the ground, preventing Colton from taking to the air, but he could only keep the champ down so long and the two traded momentum with what seemed to be a new level of intensity. Things took a turn when the referee found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and became the mustard in a Colton / turnbuckle sandwich after Chase ducked out of the way. With the referee out cold, Chase wasted no time and immediately exited the ring, reached underneath, and pulled out a steel folding chair. This week there were no cheap tricks like there were last week. Chase plunged the chair into Colton’s ribs and followed it up with a shot across the spine and a devastating shot straight to the top Colton’s head. That was enough to finally put Colton down and Chase covered the champ just in time for the referee to regain consciousness and count the pin meaning that, love it or hate it, there is a new World Heavyweight Champion in Premier Pro Wrestling and his name is Chase Gosling!
