June 23, 2018 | Holy Family Academy | Hazleton, PA
Pennsylvania Premiere Wrestling returned to Holy Family Academy in Hazelton, Pennsylvania to host the PPW Respect. The event took place on June 23rd, 2018.
After Mike Orlando's injury, the scheduled rematch with Jack Swagger was off and instead the PPW crowd was treated to a triple threat match between Swagger, Lance Anoai, and Evander James. Swagger ended up winning the contest.
Former NXT star Blue Pants (now known as Leva Bates) also wrestled, competing in a number one contender's match against Christina Marie. Courageous Christina ended up winning the contest.
Elsewhere, Ryan Race turned his back on longtime client Mik Drake, which allowed Richard Holliday to pick up a victory.
Additionally, Scott Steiner absolutely destroyed Sam Adams. Diablo Rojo tried hitting Big Poppa Pump with his briefcase afterwards, but it had no effect on the former WCW Champion.
Lastly, the latest chapter in the Punk Rock All Stars and South Philly's Finest was added as the All Stars picked up a controversial win.
