ULYSSES S. ADAMS DEF. NERO DREXEL VIA PIN FALL
This past Saturday, the Premier Planet witnesses the debut of a new superstar when Murder City unleashed Nero DreXel on PPW. The newcomer’s debut wouldn’t be easy, however, as he faced off against the Stars & Stripes clad Ulysses S. Adams who had plenty of his own motivation to win with America’s birthday just a couple of days away. Despite Adam’s experience and drive to win, DreXel put on an impressive display and nearly put Adams out with a Koji clutch, but the American made patriot found a second wind and delivered a punishing leg drop to pick up the win and walked out of the Premier Studio with Old Glory flying proudly.
– PPW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP #1 CONTENDERS MATCH –
“THE HUMAN VIDEO GAME” SCOTT COLTON VS. INIESTRA ENDS IN A TIME LIMIT DRAW
After losing the championship last week Scott Colton stepped back into the ring to compete for the number one contendership and his opponent was none other than his practical brother, Iniestra. Iniestra himself came up short last week when he lost his number one contendership match to Matt Vine. Fans expect to see an exciting fast-paced match up and “ya boys” delivered fivefold. Breaths were held and hearts were pounding as the two exchanged momentum at a lightning pace. Unfortunately not even a 30 minute time limit was enough to contain these two and with both inching so close to victory the time limit expired — a surprising development to both the competitors and the fans in attendance. Having been watching on the monitors in back, PPW CEO Randy Ricci applauded both participants and announce that next week the two will have a rematch, this time with a 45 minute time limit! In a humble display of sportsmanship, the two then shook hands and hugged it out in the middle of the ring — a mutual congratulations for a job well done.

RONNY METRO DEF. “TEXAS” PETE VIA PIN FALL
After seeing his longtime friend, Andy Anderson, demolished by Ronny Metro one week ago, “Texas” Pete looked to make things right by stopping Ronny in his tracks on Ronny’s way to the top of PPW. From the early going, Ronny once again became a victim of mind games from both his opponent and the fans in attendance and it nearly cost him the match until Pete became a little too comfortable with playing games and took his eyes off of the task at hand. This allowed Ronny to turn the tables and, despite a few rallies from Pete, Ronny put the opposition away with a Famouser. In repeat of the week prior, however, Ronny refused to simply accept his victory and walk away. Just as he had done to “Irish” Andy Anderson two weeks in a row, Ronny perpetrated an all-out assault on his opponent, putting the exclamation mark on it with a splash from the top rope and a piledriver. Once Ronny was satisfied with his handy work, he finally exited the ringside area while Pete lay in a heap in the middle of the ring until he was helped to the back.

CHASE GOSLING (C) DEF. “THE WORLD EXCLUSIVE” MATT VINE VIA COUNT OUT
After earning his opportunity at the prior taping, Matt Vine stepped into the ring to compete for the PPW World Heavyweight Championship which has eluded him for the past three years. Chase Gosling, still riding high after seeing his “big plan” come full circle on the same night by making good on his promise to take the title from Scott Colton, entered clad in war paint, a clear display of his readiness to defend his newly won championship against his former partner. Both seized every available opportunity and it appeared as though Vine might finally grab the brass ring, but Chase proved just how savvy he can be when both found themselves on the outside and, despite being on the defensive, Chase got back into the ring just as the referee counted to ten, successfully retaining the title in his first defense by way of a count out — an outcome that Chase was more than happy to accept. Chase won’t be resting that easily though. Immediately following the match, Premier CEO Randy Ricci announced that since the #1 contenders’ match between Scott Colton and Iniestra ended in a draw, Vine will have another chance at Chase’s title next week!
