E. Julius Keiper made a great point on commentary before the opening match of this week’s special episode of PPW High Voltage between Desean Pratt and Breaux Keller. He said, “I can’t believe this is what were starting out with, this could be a main event anywhere in the country.” You can’t argue with him on that one.
The two men traded several submission holds to start off the match, keeping both men grounded throughout the first few minutes of the match. Then they began to pick up some speed, hitting the ropes before Pratt hit Keller with a head scissors takedown. This briefly grounded Keller before he tried to hit a facebuster off the middle rope, but an amazing feat of athleticism by Pratt didn’t allow him to do so. “The Prince of Camden” used his hands to stop his face from hitting the canvas, and was able to use his hands to pick himself back up to his feet.
Pratt went for a quick pin after a beautiful dropkick, but Keller kicked out. Desean then began to take over the match with several offensive maneuvers followed up by pin attempts over the next few minutes, but none successful on “All Energy.” Keller found his way back into the match with a few kicks to stagger Pratt before a michinoku driver earned him a two count.
Pratt took back over with a northern lights suplex, but Keller hit him with a step-up enzuigiri and a springboard flying body press. He then went for the pin, but Pratt found a way to roll through and get him up on his shoulders, but Keller got out and hit Desean with a huge boot to the face. Another boot earned Keller a two count. Breaux began to show some frustration after Pratt kicked out.
Keller then got Pratt up on his shoulders in a fireman’s carry, but “The Prince of Camden” was able to reverse into a rollup pin and get the 1,2,3 to shock everyone inside Holy Family Academy.
Pratt was impressive in this match, and we will see if he is able to keep this momentum going in the coming weeks. Don’t look past what Breaux Keller was able to accomplish in this match either, he deserves a lot of credit for going step for step with one of the best PPW has to offer.
