7/14-MVW Rewind: MVW-PCW Friday Night Wrestling from 2010

PCW/MVW Friday Night Wrestling on HOTv
Friday January 22nd, 2010

Hosts: Rick Fantastic and Chastity Gold

Fantastic and Gold welcome everyone to the show.  They run down tonight’s card…

Match #2 (MVW)
Hallie Burton
vs.
Amy Mason

Match #3 (PCW)
Colonel DeBauchery (D.W.I.)
vs.
‘Extreme Vegan’ Brock Cole Lee (Green World Order)

Match #4 (MVW)

Match #5 (PCW-Main Event)
The Goatbusters- Ray Scantz and Peter Jenkman
vs.
The Midnite Rockin’ Express- Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane w/Dr. Bill (Old School Kings)

Fantastic explains that the first match was originally going to be PCW’s Hunter the Hunter vs. Jobber the Hutt.  But because PCW and MVW personality Dawn McGill defeated Tim Shipley last night for High Octane Wrestling’s LSD Title, tonight’s first match will be the McGill-Shipley title match.

(courtesy of High Octane Wrestling)

As the video ends the crowd inside the Coliseum cheer loudly as it is time for the LSD Championship match to begin.

Sabotage by the Beastie Boys hits the PA system and the crowd shows some respect for the former Army Ranger.

Bryan McVay: Making her way to the ring…standing 6’2” and weighing in at 173 pounds…hailing from Morenci Michigan……DAAAAAAAAWN MCGIIIIILLLLLLL!!!!

Dawn continues down the ramp and enters the ring and even smiles at all the fans cheering for her.

Joe Hoffman: Well it’s obvious that this girl who has yet to win a match here in HOW is starting to win over the fans with her tenacity and never say die attitude.

Benny Newell: Yawn…only reason I am not sleeping is because she has tits and a vagina that has to be filled with sand…and I got the shovel baby…

Joe …again…can only shake his head as McVay introduces the champion…

MK Ultra by Muse hits the arenas sound system and the LSD Champion makes his way out from the back with Roxie by his side.

Bryan McVay: Introducing now the current LSD Champion…he stands 5’11” and weighs in at 228 pounds….hailing from Milton Keynes, England….accompanied by the lovely Roxie Sykes…..YOUR LSD CHAMPION…..TIIIIIIIIM SHIIIIIPLEEEEEEYYYYY!!!!

Roxie leads the Champion down the ramp and watches as he climbs into the ring and slowly hands the LSD Championship belt to referee Joel Hortega who proceeds to hold it high in the air to all the fans in the arena and those watching live on HOTv…..the whole time with Shipley staring down McGill.

Benny Newell: Anyone else think it’s fucked up that McGill is taller than Shipley? I mean that dude is Tom Cruise short and Cavanaugh’s dick might be bigger than our LSD Champion….I never realized how short he was until he was next to McGill….like holy fuck batman…

Joe Hoffman: YOU DONE??? Shipley outweighs her by a lot and let’s face it…..size don’t matter..

Benny Newell: Says the little man…

Joe tries to ignore Benny as Hortega signals for the bell and we are officially underway…

Shipley and McGill begin circling each other as the crowd remains on their feet as the match definitely has a big match feel to it.

Joe Hoffman: You know seeing these two in the ring just reminded me…where is Mark O’Neal? Where is Griffin Faze?

Benny Newell: I cannot believe I am about to say this…but can we focus on the shit in the ring please?

Joe is flustered at being put in his place by Benny..

Benny Newell: Act like a fucking Hall of Famer will ya…

Back in the ring the two HOW superstars lock up and Shipley easily takes the early advantage as he muscles McGill to the ropes and instead of whipping her off the ropes he drives a knee into the gut of Dawn which sends her to her knees gasping for air.

Shipley smiles down at Roxie who seems a lot more focused than Shipley and this is apparent as McGill catches him off guard by pulling on his waist and thru the middle rope and down to the cold floor of the arena.

Shipley quickly bounces up but is met with a flying elbow from McGill and for the next several minutes Dawn uses the whole ringside environment, while keeping on eye on Roxie, to her advantage and rolls into the ring several times to break up the Diez count by Hortega.

Joe Hoffman: McGill with the early advantage here and boy has she been taking it to the champion early…

Finally McGill rolls Shipley back into the ring as it was getting pretty close to Roxie attacking Dawn……

Back in the ring the champion struggles to his feet and just as he does he is met with a running dropkick right to his injured knee and Roxie’s screams or horror can be heard throughout the arena as Shipley goes down hard clutching his knee.

Joe Hoffman: Again the Champions knee is failing him…he needs time off and he needs it as of three weeks ago…

For the next several minutes Dawn works over the knee of Shipley and each time she is about to lock in a submission type move on his leg, Roxie jumps up on the apron and breaks up the hold as Hortega is forced to give Roxie his undivided attention….so much so that finally Hortega has had enough from Roxie and bans her from ringside…

Joe Hoffman: Hortega just banned Roxie from the match!!! She has to go to the back now!!

Benny Newell: Good…the bitch can’t throw in the towel for the gimp then..

The crowd cheers loudly as Roxie is going apeshit as several HOW security members walk her to the back.

Inside the ring Shipley finally sees Roxie being escorted to the back and he starts to exit the ring as well but is grabbed from behind by McGill who rolls him up for a cover….

UNO….

DOS….

KICKOUT!!

McGill quickly jumps up to her feet and hustles up the top rope and goes to jump off but Shipley slides out of the ring and as McGill hops down to the canvas her right knee buckles and she goes down in a heap.

Joe Hoffman: Oh god….Dawn is down…and she is hurt…..

Benny Newell: Great….the handicap parking in the parking lot is already filled….damn now I gotta race a bunch of gimps to get a good spot? Fuck me running…

Shipley sees McGill go down and watches as Roxie is forced fully to the back and tries to shake the pain out in his own knee before sliding back into the ring where Dawn is trying to get to her feet via the ropes.

Just as she gets to her feet however Shipley drops to a knee and drives his shoulder into the back of Dawn’s right knee and she goes down screaming in pain.

Shipley taps his forehead as he stands up and places Dawn’s leg on the bottom rope and then proceeds to put the boots to it….over…and over..and over again.

Joe Hoffman: We seen this a lot lately from the HOW wrestlers…they are definitely more focused on the physical injuries instead of all the mental games we are used to..

Benny Newell: About fucking time….

Now it is Shipley who works on the injured knee of a wrestler as he executes several grapevines, submissions and just pure brute force on Dawn’s knee….the destruction of her leg and her screams of pain…have the crowd literally calling for Shipley to finish the match……

And he does.

Shipley pulls Dawn towards the center of the ring and signals for his reverse figure four leg lock….Newton’s Paradox..

Joe Hoffman: Smart move here folks…..work the leg…use a leg submission….

Shipley bends down to begin to lock the move in but as he does McGill reaches up and grabs Shipley’s groin in a nasty Testicular Claw….which sends Shipley immediately on the defensive as McGill slowly makes her way up to her feet with Shipley’s balls in her hand….

Benny Newell: Tell me when it’s over!!!!

McGill sweeps the legs out from Shipley and he falls to the mat and McGill wastes no time in locking in a perfect figure four leg lock in the middle of the ring…

Shipley pounds the mat in pain and frustration but he doesn’t give up.

Hortega even counts several near falls when Shipley’s shoulders are on the mat but each time he gets up. He finally gets enough energy to try and roll the move over and they get halfway there but Shipley cannot take anymore and they roll back into the previous position and now it is McGill who is pounding the canvas as she tries to apply as much pressure as possibly…

Shipley falls back to the canvas in pain and Hortega starts another count….

UNO…..

DOS……

TRES!!!!!!

Joe Hoffman: SHE DID IT…SHE DID IT…SHE DID IT!!!!!

The Kallisten Coliseum goes crazy as McGill is in a state of shock as HOW medics rush down the ramp and slide into the ring as a now passed out Shipley is not moving, having passed out from the pain.

Hortega grabs the LSD Championship and puts it around the waist of McGill as McVay makes the official announcement…

Bryan McVay: WINNER OF THE MATCH IN 18 MINUTES AND 24 SECONDS…AND NEEEEEEEW LSD CHAMPION……DAAAAAWWWWWWN MCCCCCCGIIIILLLLLLLLLL!!!!

McGill falls against the ropes as the crowd cheers madly for the new champion as Benny and Joe don’t say a word during this great moment.

WINNER AND NEW LSD CHAMPION: Dawn McGill at 18:24

Match #2 (MVW)
Hallie Burton vs. Amy Mason

Chastity notes that Hallie was a former PCW Women’s Champion back when they had a women’s division.    Hallie is trying to pull herself back up into the title scene after a lackluster first six months in MVW.

Hallie wastes no time taking the action to Mason.  She hits a series of backhand slaps and bites her.  Mason escapes with a knee to the gut and hits an elbow in the corner, whips Hallie cross-corner but runs into a clothesline.  Mason hits another clothesline, a pair of suplexes and a neckbreaker.  Hallie tries to go for the Defense Rests early.  Action goes outside where Hallie continues to take control, and smothers her with a fans hat.  Back inside and Hallie goes to work on Mason’s arm and hits a flatliner.  Hallie goes to the Naomichi Marufuji playbook with a dragon screw in the ropes.  She ties up the legs in the ropes.  Hallie gets a chinbreaker to dragon screw.  Mason reverses and puts her in a Half Bombay Crab.  Hallie gets the ropes and Mason starts to play to the fans.  Amy tries a backdrop suplex but Hallie flips behind her, and hurts her leg!  She fights off with headbutts and tries to counter a shinbreaker with a sunset flip but can’t get it on right.  Amy counters the Asai DDT to a fisherman faceplant and goes back to the Cobra Stretch.

Mason escapes the hold with elbows and plays possum to make Hallie try for Shadows Over Hell, and then shoves her to the floor flat on his back. Wow, a logical reason for somebody to switch from legwork to backwork?  Say it ain’t so.  Hallie powers Amy into the ring apron and then starts driving her knee into the back. Hallie hits a big headbutt and charges into the corner but Mason works in the Tarantula, which is both cool and logical.  She starts choking Hallie.  Burton shoves her off and she takes a man-sized bump into the rail.  Mason hits a Jig ‘N’ Tonic on Hallie.  She  sets her up top but Hallie fights her way off the ropes.   Kneeling muscle buster by Hallie.   COBRA CLUTCH SUPLEX! Cobra Clutch in a Camel Clutch position by Hallie and Mason taps out.

WINNER: Hallie Burton in 17:12

MATCH #3 (PCW)
Colonel DeBauchery (D.W.I.) vs. ‘Extreme Vegan’ Brock Cole Lee (Green World Order)

Col. DeBauchery goes European with a glove slap. Brock Cole Lee’s honor impugned, Peta from PETA produces a glove and gives it to Lee who slaps Col. DeBauchery. DeBauchery counters the froggy crossbody to a Samoan Drop. They take it to the floor where Lee moonsaults off the corner onto DeBauchery. A second attempt at the crossbody frogsplash gets two. DeBauchery counters something to the UFO (Unidentified Flying Opponent, aka no-hands airplane spin). The Jagerbomb is countered to a small package! ONE, TWO, THRE-NO! The pop-up uppercut puts Lee down, though. Lee hits the Hadouken to set up the reverse rana. DeBauchery blocks Croyt’s Wrath, though, and goes low with a mule kick. Oooh, right in the jubblies. That sets up a wicked uppercut for the win at 9:37.

WINNER: Colonel DeBauchery at 9:37

MATCH #4 (MVW)
‘Sweet Southern Comfort’ Jackie Daniels vs. Christa Carmondy

We start with a shoving match and Christa slaps Daniels, Daniels shoves her and then hits a dropkick. Daniels hits a stiff shot in the corner and whips Christa, Christa throws Daniels around and hits a suplex for two. Christa applies a surfboard stretch, Daniels gets to her feet, and Christa pulls her back down by her hair. A kneedrop gets two for Christa and she whips Daniels, who stays in the ropes to avoid a big boot, and then we get double big boots. Daniels hits some forearms and Christa grabs her by the throat, but Daniels stops that with a double axehandle to the ropes. She hits some elbows and a roaring elbow, and an atomic drop.  Daniels hits a modified exploder suplex for two. She hits the Barbie Crusher.  Christa misses a kick to the head.  Daniels responds with a big roundhouse kick to the head, and finishes with the Daniels’s Splash.

WINNER: Jackie Daniels in 6:15

MATCH #5 (PCW Main Event)
The Goatbusters (Island of Misfit Wrestlers) vs. The Midnite Rockin’ Express (Old School Kings)

*Spooky music begins followed by a funky beat*

If there’s something grazing
In your neighborhood
Who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)
If you see a herd
And it don’t look good
Who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I ain’t afraid of no Goat

If you’re seeing horns
Running through your yard
Who can you call
(Goatbusters)
If you have a goat
Sleeping in your bed
Oh, who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I ain’t afraid of no Goat

Who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)
If you’re all alone
Pick up the phone
And call
(Goatbusters)

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I hear it likes the girls
I ain’t afraid of no Goat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)
If you’ve had a dose
Of a freaky Goat
Maybe you’d better call
(Goatbusters)

Let me tell you something
Bustin’ makes me feel good

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I ain’t afraid of no Goat

Don’t get caught alone, oh no
(Goatbusters)
When it comes through your door
Unless you just want some more
I think you better call
(Goatbusters)
Ow

Who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)
Who you gonna call
(Goatbusters)
Ah, I think you better call
(Goatbusters)…

The Goatbusters, Peter Jenkman and Ray Scantz climb into the ring along with their manager, Argon.

The Midnite Rockin’ Express offers handshakes to the Goatbusters, who offer hard forearms. Scantz hits Michaels with a back elbow, and Jenkman hits an Owen-style belly-to-belly suplex on Gibson-Lane, sending him to the floor. They whip Michaels and try the double football tackle, but Gibson-Lane pulls Michaels to the floor and they converse. Michaels looks to get in the ring with Scantz, but Gibson-Lane sneaks up from behind. He gets in a couple forearms before Scantz whips him to the corner, hits a corner clothesline, snap mares him and hits a sliding boot for two. Moral of the story: play fair. Scantz hits a pair of chops and tags in Jenkman, who punches away at Gibson-Lane and stomps a mudhole. He hits a back suplex for two as the fans chant “Fuck ‘em up Goatbusters”, and the Goatbusters oblige with a double team CURB STOMP! Scantz is legal now but Gibson-Lane hits a knee and tags out to Michaels, who rushes in and…gets hip tossed by Scantz.

Scantz follows with a double stomp, and hits a scoop slam and legdrop for two.  Scantz hits a chop and tags out, Jenkman runs to the opposite corner knocks off Gibson-Lane. Scantz whips Michaels into an elbow by Jenkman, then hits a Russian Legsweep and Jenkman hits a second rope senton. Hey, a new combination! Jenkman gets two and Gibson-Lane comes in to flex his muscles. The Goatbusters duck a double clothesline attempt and chop Gibson-Lane into the corner, and then biel him OUT of the corner.

Jenkman hits a flat palm chop and a vertical suplex for two on Michaels. He puts him in a headscissors, and Michaels gets the ropes. Michaels reverses a whip but Jenkman gets a sunset flip, and Michaels tags out before Jenkman rolls him into a cover. Gibson-Lane stomps on Jenkman’s head and knocks Scantz off the apron. Michaels catapults Jenkman into a forearm by Gibson-Lane, and Gibson-Lane slams him on Michaels’s knees.  Gibson-Lane and Jenkman trade shots and Gibson-Lane hits a knee lift before tagging out. Gibson-Lane hits an inverted atomic drop, gyrates and then ducks so Michaels can hit a clothesline. Michaels covers for two and then pummels Jenkman. Michaels whips Jenkman and hits a spinning leg lariat. Michaels tags out and holds Jenkman so Gibson-Lane can hit a stomp out of the corner.

Jenkman and Gibson-Lane trade shots and Gibson-Lane backs him into the corner. He goes for the gyration suplex but Jenkman lands on his feet and gets a nearfall off of a schoolboy. Gibson-Lane tries a back suplex but Jenkman lands on his feet, but this time Gibson-Lane rolls away from the schoolboy.  Jenkman tries to tag but Gibson-Lane knocks Scantz off the apron. Jenkman hits a flurry of forearms but Gibson-Lane hits a dropkick for two. Gibson-Lane rips off his bowtie and throws it at Jenkman and then pummels him. He smashes him into his team’s turnbuckle and tags out to Michaels. Gibson-Lane slams Jenkman and Michaels hits a springboard legdrop off the bottom rope for two. I mention the bottom rope because Michaels jumped higher than the second rope before landing. It’s impressive.

Michaels runs into a pair of boots in the corner, and Jenkman maneuvers around into a release northern lights suplex. He looks to make a tag but this time Gibson-Lane pulls Scantz down from the floor. Jenkman goes to the corner to wait for Scantz, but that opens him up for Michaels’s double knee attack! He gets two and then applies a chinlock. Jenkman escapes with elbows, and then counters a clothesline with a diamond cutter. Glad to see he incorporated that into his moveset, since he’s been doing the springboard cutter since day one. Jenkman makes the hot tag and Scantz hits Michaels with a trio of clotheslines and a dropkick. Scantz lays in some shots and goes for the Death Valley Driver, but Michaels avoids that. He runs into a Ron Simmons-like spinebuster though. Now, I know we’re supposed to prefer the Double A version, but I’ve always thought that Faarooq’s looked more vicious. Gibson-Lane makes the save but Jenkman come in and hits an enzugiri.

Scantz whips Michaels into the corner and the Goatbusters hit the facewash/dropkick combo, and Scantz gets two. Michaels hits a jawbreaker and tags out, Gibson-Lane tries a forearm war and loses, so he goes to the eyes. Gibson-Lane whips Scantz to the corner but runs into an elbow, Scantz sets up for the reverse blockbuster but Michaels holds him in place, Gibson-Lane jumps up and hits an X-Factor off the top rope. TREMENDOUS! It only gets two, so Gibson-Lane tags out and goes for the springboard blockbuster. Scantz ranas out of it, but Michaels catches a kick and hits the capoiera kick and a fireman’s carry into a uranage for two. Jenkman had to make the save on that. Michaels chokes Scantz, but Scantz reverses a corner whip, Michaels leaps over him but Scantz hits the reverse STO into the turnbuckle. Jenkman tags in and tries the side exploder suplex, Michaels avoids it, so Jenkman looks to go for a DRAGON suplex, but Michaels blocks that two, so Jenkman settles for the fisherman buster, which Gibson-Lane makes the save on. Okay, that almost made up for the teased dragon suplex, but not quite.

Scantz goes after Gibson-Lane and the Goatbusters want the football tackle but Gibson-Lane hits a kick on one and a club to the back to the other one. BUT he hits the ropes and the Goatbusters hit it anyway. They try to biel Kenny, but Michaels LANDS ON HIS FEET! Michaels ducks a double clothesline but eats a double superkick, and the Goatbusters finish with Crossing the Streams.

WINNER: The Goatbusters at 24:42

7/12-The Definitive Erasure Airs

Darin Zion and ‘Defective Marty Pratt faced each other at the Lake of the Ozarks in a theatrical wrestling match filmed last week.  Who would suffer the ultimate ignominy of a DEFINITIVE ERASURE?

It all started when Missouri Valley Wrestling’s backstage Interviewer Kellie Burkowski interviewed Darin Zion about his huge win in Tokyo, Japan against ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-6 and was attacked from behind by a man wielding with an oversized pencil.  He said Zion must be ERASED and hit him over and over shouting ‘ERASE!’

One week later, Zion wrestled Steve Solex and Zeb Martin for the HOTv title and about to hit the Ban Hammer on Solex.  He heard a scream and saw the same guy who’d attacked him the previous week hovering over Zion’s downed manager after knocking her out with the oversized pencil.  The distraction allows Solex to shove Zion out of the ring and go on to pin Zeb Martin to win the HOTv title.

Then at HOW Refueled 65, Darin was asked by HOW’s backstage interviewer Blaire Moise if he knew who the guy was who attacked Meredith.  Zion had no clue who he was but the man came out and identified himself as ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt.  Pratt referred to Zion as a “purloiner of property of intellect” and revealed he’d been paid a large sum of cash by a mysterious benefactor to ensure Zion suffers an unfortunate arc of circumstance called… ERASURE! 

And then last week on Refueled 66, Blaire Moise interviewed Pratt while Pratt’s wife Rebecca played a dark and foreboding song on the pan flute and the angelic voice of ‘Brother Spiro’ comes out to serenade Blaire…

Brother Spiro:
You’ll disappear and catalogue yourself as archaic.  

He hits the button on his phone.

Manufactured Crowd Response: ARCHAIC!  

…only to be interrupted midsong by Blaire who demanded to know what this was all about and who the mysterious benefactor was.  Pratt evaded Blaire’s question and proclaimed once again that Zion would soon suffer an unfortunate arc of circumstance called ERASURE!

So…

Will Darin Zion be erased forever?  Or will Zion erase ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt from his life and send him back under the rock he crawled out of with an inglorious defeat at Zion’s hands?

Who is the mysterious benefactor?

Will Brother Spiro sing again?

Who the hell plays a pan flute?

Also, just why was Rah in a courtroom the other week?

And finally, we find out just what this is all REALLY about.

All these burning questions and more will now be answered as the cataclysmic conclusion to the Pratt versus Zion story takes place at Darin Zion’s Compound at the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri RIGHT NOW…

…huh?…

…oh.

Well, the match will take place right after this special message from the Legal Department.

The Legal Department
Somewhere
Cut to a man in a nice three-piece business suit looking all serious and stuff.

Some Guy in the Legal Department: Hello.  The legal department would like to reassure everyone… but especially those who hold copyright to certain intellectual property… that we have taken great pains to make sure that no copyright violations to said intellectual property takes place on this broadcast here tonight.  The legal department has taken extraordinary measures to make sure this does not happen including this…

He holds up what appears to be a script.

Some Guy in the Legal Department: …that’s right.  The legal department has made sure every single word that’s about to be spoken as well as all the action that’s about to take place in tonight’s theatrical match has been carefully scripted out for you, our loyal viewers, and…

An ambulance’s siren interrupts his spiel and causes a momentary distraction.

Some Guy in the Legal Department: Um…and scrutinized at the highest level possible to make sure any questionable or potentially copyright violating material to other’s intellectual property has been meticulously scrubbed…

He cocks his ear away from the camera as the siren seems to be getting closer.

Some Guy in the Legal Department: …er…scrubbed, um, taken out of the script.  So with that in mind.  The legal department hopes that you…

The siren’s sound reaches its apex and then begins to fade.

Some Guy in the Legal Department: …uh… hopes that you enjoy the show!

He yanks his briefcase up from the floor and sprints off the set.

Some Guy in the Legal Department (off screen): WAAAAAIT!  STOPPPP!

A door slams shut.

Some Guy in the Legal Department (off screen and barely audible): I’M AN ATTORNEY!

Cut to…

The Definitive Erasure
Filmed Last Week on Location
Darin Zion’s Compound
Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri

On the far side of Zion’s property, a man and his children prepare a post Fourth of July fireworks display.

In the side yard a gardener fills a small wading pool with water.

HOTv cameras zoom in on a remote-controlled miniature Dodge Grand Caravan with a piece of paper taped to the top of it in a driveway.

The vehicle moves forward and the camera follows along as it rolls onto a sidewalk that leads to the entrance of Zion’s palatial mansion.  The vehicle travels forward until a step appears ahead.  The vehicle slams into the step and recoils backwards a couple feet.  It again tries to navigate the step and again is denied.

Voice off camera: Oh.  DUHHH!

A hooded figure appears on screen.  Putting the script to this theatrical production in his back pocket, he lifts the vehicle up onto the landing and places it down at the front door.

He then pulls the script back out, reads his next action, and proceeds to pound on Zion’s door.  Once done, he shoves the script back in his pocket, leaps off the porch, and runs out of the picture.

Cut to inside Zion’s mansion…

Darin Zion relaxes in his chair and checks out messages on his cell phone.

*BOOM-BOOM-BOOM-BOOM*

Zion jumps up from the chair.

Darin Zion: What the-

Brisk walk to the front door.  Zion opens it up and finds the miniature Dodge Grand Caravan with a piece of paper taped to the top of it there.

Zion tears the letter off the top and reads the note.

Darin Zion: This is Mini-Vanguard-Uno.  Meet ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt in the backyard and prepare for your DEFINITIVE ERASURE!

Darin crumples up the paper and punts the RC mini-van off the porch.  The vehicle lands in multiple pieces in the yard next to a small plastic toy replica of the Mystery Machine from the TV show Scooby-Doo.

He checks his copy of the script for his next line and faces the camera.

Darin Zion: All right.  Let’s get this over with.

The camera then follows Zion as he jumps onto a ten-speed bicycle that just happens to be conveniently leaning against the porch.  Zion pedals the bike as fast as he can around the house towards the backyard and buzzes by close to Chester the Gardener who’s just about done filling up the small wading pool.

Arriving in the backyard, what does he find?

A wrestling ring.

A referee- Davey Keels.

A ring announcer- Kimber Marshall

And…

Defective’ Marty Pratt: Dar-een Zyyy-on.

… flanked by Brother Spiro, ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt motions to Zion to join him inside the ring.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: I knew you’d…

Pratt pauses for maximum dramatic effect and to give him time to pull out his script to make sure he stays true and says the correct, non-copyright or intellectual property violating words he’s supposed to say.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: show up-OOOOF!

While Pratt reviewed his script, Zion jumped off the bike while still in motion and launched himself into the ring, jumped up, spun around with arm outstretched and cut Pratt down with a vicious Ban Hammer.

Kimber Marshall scurries to a corner.  Pratt’s script flies out of the ring at impact and he hits his head hard on the mat.  Zion immediately hooks the legs.  Davey Keels right there to make the count.

ONE…

TWO…

THREE!!!!

Keels calls for the bell and the match is done.

Zion jumps back to his feet and Keels raises his arm in victory.

Kimber Marshall: Your winner at… SEVEN SECONDS!   DARRRRRR-IN!  ZIIIIIII-ON!

Darin Zion: Yes!  It’s over!

He looks down at the fallen Pratt still lying motionless on the mat.

Brother Spiro (speaking in a decidedly feminine voice): WAIT A MINUTE!  WHAT IN THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED HERE?

Zion and Keels turn their gaze towards ‘Brother Spiro’- who it appears may not be a ‘brother’ after all.

She rips the microphone out of Kimber Marshall’s hand and incredulously glares down at ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt on the mat.

Brother Spiro: That’s IT?  FOUR WEEKS of meticulous planning?  FOUR WEEKS of building this up and you lose this match in SEVEN SECONDS?  ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

Darin Zion: Hold on!  It’s YOU!

‘Brother Spiro’ suddenly realizes that outwardly expressing her anger and frustration in an sudden emotional outburst may have constituted a slight error in judgment.

Brother Spiro: Oh.  Um…

Zion points at her.

Darin Zion: You’re the mysterious benefactor!

She lets out a girlish giggle and an awkward smile befitting someone who’s just had her hand caught in the cookie jar.

Brother Spiro: Gotta go.  Bye!

She turns and hauls ass towards her car.

Cut to…

On the edge of Zion’s property away from the other side of the house, Ray McAvay’s children prepare the fireworks they’re getting ready to shoot off at dusk overseen by Ray’s 24-year-old step-daughter Victoria McGill.

She glances on her script that’s lying on the ground and then looks up and smiles at the camera.

Victoria McGill: Safety first!

Victoria flashes a thumbs up.  Max Kael, HOW Hall of Famer and former Literally Safest Division champion… rest in peace, would be proud of her.

But then Brother Spiro comes screaming around the corner of the mansion in full sprint.

Victoria McGill: What in the world?

Then Zion appears some twenty feet behind ‘Brother Spiro’.  Sensing there’s a problem and further sensing the person fleeing could be the problem, Victoria turns to the younger children.

Victoria McGill: Do you guys remember everything Ray said about fireworks safety and the proper way to shoot off fireworks, bottle rockets and roman candles?

Children (in unison): Yes!

Victoria McGill: Disregard them.

Gracie McAvay’s eyes light up.  McAvay’s six-year-old daughter goes over and picks up then lights a roman candle.  She aims the firework towards Brother Spiro and soon a flurry of flaming balls shoot out and fly sixty feet through the air into the inside of the car, lighting it up with pretty colors and then setting the interior of the vehicle on fire.

Gracie McAvay: COOL!

When ‘Brother Spiro’ reaches her car…

Brother Spiro: Oh shit!

…she’s horrified when she sees the fire inside.  ‘Brother Spiro’ then hears a whistling noise off in the distance that’s closing in on her.  She turns…

Brother Spiro: OH SHIT!

…and sees a barrage of jumbo whistling bottle rockets heading right for her.

Watching from her vantage point, Victoria smiles.

Victoria McGill: Damn right, oh shit!

Tori notes her siblings are giving her the eye of disapproval.

Victoria McGill: Yeah you guys didn’t hear that.

‘Brother Spiro’ tries to run away but she steps on a toy in the yard and lands flat on her back.  The bottle rockets fly over her and then explode inside and outside her car at impact.

***

Meanwhile, in the side yard, Chester the Gardener is dragging poor Marty Pratt out of the ring to face his fate.

Marty Pratt: NOOOOO!  Not that!

Per the script, Marty is overacting in a way that would have made the late, great Alan Rickman (see Robin Hood- Prince of Thieves… the one where Kevin Costner can’t speak with a proper British accent) proud.

Marty Pratt: Not the LAKE OF BANISHMENT!  NOOOOOOO!

Marty sees the Lake of Banishment approaching but suddenly snaps out of character.

Marty Pratt: Um… hey, that’s a plastic wading pool?

Close up on the blue plastic wading pool full of water.

Chester the Gardener: It’s all we could afford.

Marty Pratt: Oh.

Then he turns on the overacting thing again.

Marty Pratt: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Chester the Gardener dumps Pratt into the wading pool…er…LAKE OF BANISHMENT and through the miracle of modern video editing, Pratt magically disappears.

The gardener wipes his hands and prepares to attend other chores on the Zion estate. But then two hands suddenly appear at the side of the Lake of Banishment as if someone’s trying to escape.

Chester the Gardener: Oh no you don’t.

He grabs a rake and starts whacking the two hands with it.

Chester the Gardener:  Get back in there Marty.

He whacks the hands again.

Chester the Gardener: I said get back in there.  Don’t make me use this!

Chester the Gardener points to an electric cattle prod that’s oh so conveniently close by and then whacks the hands again with the rake.

***

Back in the front yard now, the impromptu fireworks display is over and Brother Spiro’s car is engulfed in flames.  ‘Brother Spiro’ is now surrounded by Zion, Ray McAvay, and his children.

Darin Zion: Now let’s find out who you really are.

Zion removes the mask.

*CUE DRAMATIC SOUND EFFECT*

Darin Zion/Ray McAvay (in unison): SUNNY O’CALLAHAN?

Darin Zion: Wait. You’re the one who was Rah’s manager for a few weeks earlier this year until he fired you right before March to Glory.  YOU were the one who was behind all this?

O’Callahan rolls her eyes.

Sunny O’Callahan: Yes Darin.  I was the one who was behind all this.

Darin Zion: But why?

Sunny O’Callahan: Why?  WHY?

Sunny faces the camera with steely eyes and an indignantly pissed off expression.

Sunny O’Callahan: I’ll tell you WHY, Darin.  Because Rah fired me.  That’s right.  RAH FIRED ME!  Tossed me out as if I was yesterday’s garbage.  ME!  Sunny O’Callahan- the GREATEST wrestling mind… the GREATEST wrestling manager to ever grace a wrestling ring, thrown out on the street as if I was some common curtain jerking talent enhancement loser.  Oh yeah.  I admit it. I enjoyed every second of Rah getting his ass kicked all over the ring by Sutler Kael at March to Glory.  Not only did I enjoy it, I savored it because it proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that Rah was nothing… NOTHING… without ME… Sunny O’Callahan… in his corner.  But no, that wasn’t enough.  No.  I wanted vengeance for what he did to me.  I vowed that I would show him… I would show EVERYONE… that Rah threw away the best wrestling manager he’ll ever set eyes on.  So I sued Rah for unlawful termination in a California court and thought I was a shoe-in to get justice, to get even with Rah through the legal system…

Rah Makes Quick Cameo at HOW Refueled 66 – July 3rd, 2021
The San Diego Municipal Courtroom.  We see Rah sitting at a desk next to what appears to be a high-priced attorney.  Even more peculiar about this random cut scene is the fact that Rah is actually wearing an expensive suit.  Rah sees the HOTv cameraman and tries to shoo him away with his regal hand.

Rah: No no.  Rah cannot talk right now.

***

Sunny O’Callahan: …but unfortunately, I didn’t count on Sports Entertainment Barbie, Blaire Moise, and Dawn McGill ganging up against me at the trial… I mean, thanks bitches for having a fellow bitch’s back.  So after that plan crashed and burned ingloriously at the litigation level, I plotted my next move and came up with this overly convoluted scheme to take some loser scrub I found on the scrap heap and scuffling at the bottom of the MVW totem pole and use my talent and leadership skills to make him into a real big-time wrestler to show Rah just what he was missing out on.  I mean, hell, if John Sektor picked up Adam Ellis out of the bottom scrapings of MVW’s primordial bottom of the barrel and now he’s won a match at HOFC 1, why couldn’t I- Sunny O’Callahan- wrestling’s greatest mind… and body…

O’Callahan does a quick hip shift back and forth.

Sunny O’Callahan: …and the best damn wrestling manager ever do the exact same thing?

She stops and takes a breath.

Sunny O’Callahan: By the way, how many words am I at?

Ray McAvay: I gotcha at three hundred and fifty-four.

Sunny O’Callahan: Oh okay.

Ray McAvay: Just as a reference, HOFC maxes their promos at 750 words so you’ve got plenty of words to go.

Sunny O’Callahan: Gotcha.

Sunny shifts back into full promo mode.

Sunny O’Callahan: But NOOOOOO.  That fucking idiot Marty Pratt fucked everything all to hell and lost to you in seven fucking seconds.  All of my plans.  My revenge on Rah.  Gone in SEVEN.  FUCKING.  SECONDS!  MARTY RUINED EVERYTHING!

She sighs.  And calms down.

Sunny O’Callahan: So I decided to make a run for it.

Sunny turns to McAvay with a nasty sneer and her bitterness rises to the surface.

Sunny O’Callahan: And I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for your meddling kids!

***

Soon afterwards, the fire department arrives to put out the car fire and a tow truck transports the burned-out hulk to a tow yard.

O’Callahan sticks her head out of the back door window of a deputy sheriff’s vehicle…

Sunny O’Callahan: FUCK YOU RAH!  THIS ISN’T OVER YET!  I SWEAR TO GOD I’LL- *BONK* OWWW!

…and subsequently her head smacks a nearby telephone pole close to the driveway as the vehicle backs up.  Sunny is then summarily transported to a local jail.

Zion retrieves the toy van from the yard and gives it back to McAvay’s youngest daughter Karlie- age 4.

Darin Zion: Here’s your Mystery Machine.

Ray McAvay: Don’t you mean… (fake strange accent)… The MACHINE of MYSTERY? 

Pause…

Then everyone breaks out laughing and we fade to black…

Fin.

Oh wait… no?

Oh.

Belay the whole fade to black thing because… back in the side yard…

The sound of agony rings through the air as Chester the Gardener hovers over the ‘lake of banishment’ where two hands again continue to clasp the edge of the wading pool trying to escape.

Chester the Gardener: I warned you!  Don’t make me use this!

He shoves the electric cattle prod into the wading pool and turns on the juice.  The two hands shake violently and a scream pierces the air.

Chester the Gardner: See?   You made me use this!

Now we fade to black.

FIN… (for real).

7/12-Charlie Blackwell Confirms Departure From MVW

Former two-time MVW Men’s Champion Charlie Blackwell confirmed this morning the news that MVW Owner Ray McAvay broke yesterday that he’s reached the end of the road with MVW and is leaving to open up his own wrestling company.

MVW Backstage Interviewer Kellie Burkowski caught up with Charlie this morning before he returned to Dallas, Texas.

Why now?
Why now?  You know, I’ve done just about everything I’ve wanted to do in MVW.  Two-time champion.  Great matches with a bunch of different wrestlers.  I just turned thirty-one and I can tell that the years of doing this is beginning to take its toll on me.  I wanted to get out before things really started to go south and between wrestling and my financial services gig I had enough money to make the call.

Tell us what your plans are?
In September we are opening up Texas Championship Wrestling.  We’ll be headquartered in Dallas, Texas and run shows all over the state. ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler will be joining us.  I’m working on a few others and should have a pretty good clue what my roster will look like by the end of this month.

Most memorable matches?
Every single one with Ray McAvay was a memorable match.  But the one we had at MVWA 88 stands out the most.  Ray wrestled the match as if it was going to be his last best shot at regaining the MVW title.   I fought with the eye on making this a big legacy moment for me to seize.  We exchanged moves and counters as the pace picked up through the middle of the match.  I was just a great match. Both of us at our best and the crowd loved it.

Any chance of a return down the road?
Not for a while.  I really want to throw everything I’ve got into Texas Championship Wrestling and make it work.  But never say never.

What will you miss the most?
Most definitely the fans.  I want to thank each and every one of them who came out to either cheer me on or boo me to death over the past four years.  I had a great time.  We did some great things.  And now it’s time for Charlie Wrestling to forge a new path and take on a new challenge.

Preview of ‘The Definitive Erasure’

Fireworks may have gone off all over the country to celebrate the Fourth of July last week but they won’t compare to what will happen when Darin Zion and ‘Defective Marty Pratt go to war at the Lake of the Ozarks in a theatrical wrestling match called the DEFINITIVE ERASURE!

How did we get to this unfortunate juncture in time?

Well, it all started when Missouri Valley Wrestling’s backstage Interviewer Kellie Burkowski interviewed Darin Zion about his huge win in Tokyo, Japan against ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-6…

MVW’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland- Chicago, IL – June 12th, 2021
Kellie has Zion with her.

Kellie Burkowski: Darin, congratulations on picking up a huge win in Tokyo, Japan against ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-6 a couple weeks ago to keep you in the Men’s Division Top Four.

Darin Zion: Thanks Kellie.  I’m happy that I’m still in the top four and I really appreciate the fact that Ray McAvay was able to book the mat-

*WHAM*

Kellie squeals and jumps back. A man dressed in what could charitably described as ‘in a rather odd outfit’- an outfit that looks strangely similar, but yet different, recognizable, but not quite a cheesy rip-off that would violate any copyright or intellectual property laws.  He’s holding an oversized… pencil in his hand that he’s just used to attack Zion with. 

Male Voice (strange dialect): Dar-reen Zyyy-on. 

The strange man looks down at Zion- who’s wondering what the hell had just hit him.

Man: Dar-reen Zyyy-on.  I knew you’d…

Pause to assess the legal ramifications of what he’s about to say and make sure he gets it right.

Man: …arrive.

Somewhere in the back, there’s a huge sigh of relief from the MVW legal department. 

Zion gets back to a seated position.   

Man: Dar-reen Zyyy-on… purloiner of property of intellect.  I’ve been sent here by a man with… big money… to send a message to you.  

Darin’s still trying to figure out what the hell is going on. 

Kellie Burkowski is wondering what the hell is going on. 

Hell, EVERYONE is wondering what the hell is going on. 

Man: Dar-reen Zyyy-on.  You must be…

He takes the oversized pencil and whacks Zion in the back of the head with it.

Man: …ERASED!

Darin Zion: OW!

Man: ERASE!

Now he starts jabbing the eraser end of the oversized pencil into Zion’s midsection.

Man: ERASE!

Again he jabs Zion with the pencil.

Man: ERASE!

And again…

Man: ERASE!

And again…

Man: ERASE!

And again…

Kellie throws up her hands.

Kellie Burkowski: All right Thunderbolt.  Back to you.

Cut back to the broadcast desk and to a very bewildered broadcast crew.

Rick Hall: What the f-… I mean, what the heck was that? 

Thunderbolt has no words. 

***

Then this moved to High Octane Wrestling one week later when Zion wrestled Steve Solex and Zeb Martin for the HOTv title.

HOTv Title Match: Steve Solex vs. Darin Zion vs. Zeb Martin from Rockford, Illinois – June 19th, 2021
…Solex gets back to a seated position.  He doesn’t see Zion behind him, sizing him up… waiting for Solex to stand.

Joe Hoffman: Zion’s waiting! 

Benny Newell: STEVE!  BEHIND YOU!

Solex back to his feet.  He slowly turns.  Zion gets ready to unleash the Ban Hammer. 

There’s a scream.  Zion turns away from Solex.

Joe Hoffman: WAIT!  WHAT…WHO IS THAT?

Some guy dressed in what could charitably described as ‘in a rather odd-looking outfit’ and holding an oversized pencil in his hand that he’s just used to knock down Meredith, hovers over Zion’s downed manager and makes eye contact with Zion in the ring. 

Benny Newell: It’s definitely not one of Dan’s 233093209 daughters, that’s for sure.

Joe Hoffman: Darin did mention a couple days ago that there was someone who was stalking him in MVW.  Is it that guy? The one who attacked Meredith- with a pencil?

Benny Newell: You know what they say.  The pencil is mightier than the sword Hoffhole.

Joe can only shake his head.

Benny Newell: DRINK!

With Zion focused on the guy as he hops back over the barricade and takes off up the aisle towards the exit, Solex rushes forward and with a mighty two hand shove sends his distracted opponent through the ropes to the floor.

Joe Hoffman: Zion to the floor!

Benny Newell: YES!  YES!  

Joe Hoffman: The ‘stalker’ has completely changed the dynamic in this match.  A minute ago, Darin Zion was on the verge of winning the title.  Now he’s on the floor outside the ring and Steve Solex is lining Zeb Martin up in his sights. 

The distraction allows Solex to shove Zion out of the ring and go on to pin Zeb Martin to win the HOTv title.  Then at HOW Refueled 65, Darin was asked by HOW’s backstage interviewer Blaire Moise who the guy was who attacked Meredith.

Blaire Moise Interviews Darin Zion at HOW Refueled 65 – June 26th, 2021
We cut to backstage where Blaire Moise is with Darin Zion, fresh off a tough loss the week before in Rockford, Illinois where he faced Steve Solex and Zeb Martin in a three-way match for the brand new HOTv Title.

Blaire Moise: Darin, I know you want to talk about the new HOTv champion Steve Solex tonight.  But first, I’d like to talk about what happened last week during the HOTv title match between you, Solex, and Zeb Martin…

(Last Week’s: HOTv Title Match)
Solex back to his feet.  He slowly turns.  Zion gets ready to unleash the Ban Hammer. 

There’s a scream.  Zion turns away from Solex.

Joe Hoffman: WAIT!  WHAT…WHO IS THAT?

Some guy holding an oversized pencil in his hand he’s just used to knock down Meredith, hovers over Zion’s downed manager and makes eye contact with Zion in the ring. 

With Zion focused on the unexpected intruder, Solex rushes forward and with a mighty two hand shove sends his distracted opponent through the ropes to the floor.

Blaire Moise: Darin, this may have cost you the HOTv title.  What happened?  And who is the guy who attacked Meredith.

Darin Zion: Honestly Blaire?  I don’t know.  This guy attacked me in Chicago two weeks ago and-

Male Voice (strange dialect): Dar-reen Zyyy-on. 

The man to whom Darin is referring to walks out and joins them.  He’s dressed in what could charitably described as ‘in a rather odd outfit’- an outfit that looks strangely similar, but yet different, recognizable, but not quite a cheesy rip-off of something that would violate any copyright or intellectual property laws. 

He also has the same oversized pencil used to attack Meredith last week. 

The man also gets the attention of HOW’s legal department.  They flock around a monitor backstage to watch the strange person in the ring with Blaire Moise. 

Man: Dar-reen Zyyy-on.  I knew you’d…

He pauses to pull out a pocket thesaurus while he assesses the legal ramifications of what he’s about to say and makes sure he gets it right.

Man: …show up.

Backstage, there’s a huge sigh of relief from HOW’s legal department. 

Blaire Moise: Who are you and why did you attack Meredith last week in Rockford, Illinois?

Man: You… can call me Br-…

Again, pause to reflect on what he’s about to say and to check the pocket thesaurus.

Man: Defective! 

Blaire waits impatiently and even does the little hand gesture to inform him that he should just spit it out.

Man: ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt. 

And again, huge exhales of relief from the HOW legal department.  

Blaire Moise: Okay Defective Marty Pratt.  What the hell are you doing here?

Defective Marty Pratt: I have been sent by someone with…

Marty looks down and thumbs through the thesaurus again.

Defective Marty Pratt: …huge sums of cash to send a message to Dar-reen Zyyy-on.

Blaire Moise: Okay. So someone paid you big money-

And the HOW legal department all begin to hyperventilate.

Defective Marty Pratt: NO-NO!  We cannot say… that of what you have just said.

Blaire Moise: What?  All I said was someone paid you big money to-

Marty covers his ears. 

Defective Marty Pratt: NOOOO!  You said it again! 

The HOW legal department now all suffer a massive collective stroke backstage.

Blaire is just plain annoyed now. 

Blaire Moise: WHAT!

Defective Marty Pratt: Blaire of Moise.  I have been paid a… large sum of cash to bring my defective distinguishment here to the Wrestling of High Octane because…

He turns to Zion.

Defective Marty Pratt: Dar-reen Zyyy-on… purloiner of property of intellect.  I’ve been asked to send a message to you. You see, Dar-reen Zyyy-on, you are in for what will be an unfortunate twist…

Everyone holds their breath…

Defective Marty Pratt: …um, arc of circumstance called… ERASURE! 

…annnnd exhale.

Darin just ‘looks’ back at him trying to figure out just what the hell this is all about.

Blaire’s still trying to figure out what the hell this is all about. 

Hell, EVERYONE is wondering what the hell this is all about. 

Quick cut to backstage where Cecilworth Farthington is sitting in the locker room.  Farthington looks at the camera, shakes his head, and mouths the word ‘no.’  We cut right back to the ring. 

Okay, everyone except Cecilworth Farthington is wondering what the hell this is all about.

Pratt brandishes the oversized pencil and points it at Darin.

Defective Marty Pratt: The point is Dar-reen Zyyy-on.  You must be…

He jabs the eraser end into Zion’s midsection.

Defective Marty Pratt: …ERASED!

Now it’s Blaire’s turn to shoot a ‘what the fuck’ look at Defective Marty Pratt.

Defective Marty Pratt: ERASE!

Again he jabs Zion with the pencil.

Darin Zion: HEY!

Defective Marty Pratt: ERASE!

And again…

Darin Zion: Stop!

Defective Marty Pratt: ERASE!

And again…

Darin Zion: Ow! Cut it out!

Defective Marty Pratt: ERASE!

And again…

Darin Zion: OW!

Defective Marty Pratt: ERASE!

Digusted and totally done with this segment, Blaire turns to the camera.

Blaire Moise: Oh for Lee’s sake, let’s go to commercial…

Defective Marty Pratt: ERASE!

Darin Zion: STOP IT!

Cut to commercial.

***

And then last week on Refueled 66, Blaire Moise then interviewed Pratt himself.

Blaire Interviews ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt at HOW Refueled 66 – July 3rd, 2021
We cut to backstage where Blaire Moise has an interview and she does not look overly enthused about it.

Blaire Moise: All right.  Let’s bring in…

She’s interrupted by a most peculiar and annoying sound.  Blaire’s head swivels towards the source of a high pitched, melodramatic, dark and foreboding melody- a woman playing a pan flute. 

Blaire sighs and finishes the introduction.

Blaire Moise: …’Defective’ Marty Pratt. 

Pratt comes out again dressed in what could charitably described as an outfit that looks strangely similar, but yet different, recognizable, a cheesy rip-off but not quite of something that would violate any copyright or intellectual property laws.  He also has the same oversized pencil used to attack Darin Zion’s manager Meredith two weeks ago in Rockford, Illinois. 

Pratt seems genuinely pleased with what the music being playing on the pan flute.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: Won-

But before he pronounces his happiness in earnest and acutely aware that backstage the HOW legal department is once again on red alert, huddled around a television to monitor the situation, Pratt refers to the pocket thesaurus that he always carries with him to make sure he says the right word.  

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: Marvelous!  Aaaaaaaaaahmazing!!!

Once again, there’s a huge sigh of relief backstage from HOW’s legal department even though one person can be seen downing a bottle of Maalox. 

Blaire Moise: All right Marty, let’s talk about-

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: My beautiful wife.

Blaire Moise: No.  About this whole thing with Darin-

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: No no.  I mean to say my beautiful wife… Rebecca… is not done with her song yet. 

Rebecca, the aforementioned wife of ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt continues to play the dark and foreboding song on the pan flute. 

Soon someone else comes out.  He’s dressed not as weirdly as Pratt and he almost appears to be wearing a mask of some sort.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: Behold the angelic voice of Brother… Spiro who will make you understand what Dar-reen Zyyy-on’s arc of circumstance will be once he is ultimately… ERASED!   

Pratt erases something in the air with the oversized pencil while Becky plays the pan flute again and Brother Spiro sings.

Brother Spiro:
You’ll disappear and catalogue yourself as archaic. 

Brother Spiro holds out the microphone expecting people to shout back ‘Archaic.’  But they don’t.  So he harrumphs and pulls out his cell phone and punches up an audio file.  Then he turns up the volume as high as it will go, holds the phone close to the microphone, and sings again.

Brother Spiro:
You’ll disappear and catalogue yourself as archaic. 

He hits the button on his phone.

Manufactured Crowd Response: ARCHAIC! 

Brother Spiro:
You’ll disappear and catalogue yourself as archaic. 

Manufactured Crowd Response: ARCHAIC! 

Brother Spiro:
You’ll disappear and catalogue yourself as archaic. 

Manufactured Crowd Response: AR-

Blaire Moise: OKAY, WE GOT IT!  Marty, why did you send a card to Darin Zion’s manager Meredith that read… and I quote… It is unfortunate your beau views my vow to my benefactor in an idle fashion. He should now take his ULTIMATE ERASURE serious after my actions tonight. Soon I will free you from his burdensome shackles. I promise you, I will…………ERASE him from existence. And just who the hell is this benefactor who’s paid you big mon-….

She stops herself in mid-sentence and becomes annoyed now that she’s had to catch and correct herself.

Meanwhile, the HOW legal department begins to hyperventilate.

Blaire Moise: …HUGH SUMS OF CASH to stalk Darin Zion?

Collective exhale backstage.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: Blaire of Moys-see-see-see-see.  You knew I’d…

Pause as Marty peruses the thesaurus once again for the right wording and the HOW legal department collectively holds their breath one more time. 

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: …be here. 

Marty nods.  He slowly turns his head as if he’s hearing something or ‘acknowledging’ someone. 

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: Yes-s-s-s-s-s—s.  Your chants of ‘Erase’ are almost orgasmic-ic-ic-ic-ic.

Blaire looks around.  There’s no one else in the vicinity.

Blaire Moise: Ah, there’s no one’s chanting, Marty. 

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: Can’t you hear the glorious chants of ERASE ringing throughout the arena?

Cut to the arena.

*crickets*

Cut back to a thoroughly unimpressed Blaire Moise.

Blaire Moise: No.  All right, look. You broke Meredith’s orbital bone with an oversized pencil.   Darin Zion wants to kick your ass.  You want to erase Darin Zion.  Zion wants to erase you from his life.  You know what has to happen now.  I know what has to happen now.  Everyone knows what has to happen now.

Quick cut to the San Diego Municipal Courtroom.  We see Rah sitting at a desk next to what appears to be a high-priced attorney. 

Even more peculiar about this random cut scene is the fact that Rah is actually wearing an expensive suit.

Rah sees the HOTv cameraman and tries to shoo him away with his regal hand.

Rah: No no.  Rah cannot talk right now.

We cut right back to the ring.

Check that.  Everyone but Rah, who’s busy dealing with some sort of legal-type situation at the moment, knows what has to happen now.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: YES, Blaire of Moys-see-see-see-see.  My defective dissonance proclaims that Dar-reen Zyyy-onn will soon suffer an unfortunate twist…

Everyone holds their breath…

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: …arc of circumstance called… 

 …annnnd exhale.

Pratt stretches his arms out wide for the overly dramatic reveal.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: …ULTIMATE ERASURE! 

Pratt erases something in the air with the oversized pencil.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: ERASE!

And again.

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: ERASE!

And again…

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: ERASE!

And again, Blaire’s done with this segment and wonders if Lee is really paying her enough to deal with all this nonsense. 

Blaire Moise: Commercial… NOW!

‘Defective’ Marty Pratt: ERASE!

Cut to commercial. 

***

And now we are one night away from the replay of the climactic battle for the ages that will be waged shortly where someone will be suffer the ultimate ignominy- DEFINITIVE ERASURE!

Who will it be?  Will Darin Zion be erased forever?  Or will Zion erase ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt from his life and send him back under the rock he crawled out of with an inglorious defeat at Zion’s hands?

Who is the mysterious benefactor?

Will Brother Spiro sing again?

Who the hell plays a pan flute?

And finally, we find out just what this is REALLY about.

The cataclysmic conclusion to the Pratt versus Zion story took place at Darin Zion’s Compound at the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri and will be replayed tomorrow night on HOTv.

7/11-Interview with Ray McAvay

Missouri Valley Wrestling’s backstage interview Kellie Burkowski caught up with MVW Owner Ray McAvay at MVW Headquarters in St. Louis recently to get his take on the current state of MVW and a few other comments.

Heading into the summer break, how is MVW doing?
Oh we’re doing good.  We just had an unexpected sellout recently in Rockford when we worked with High Octane Wrestling to have the HOTv Title match there.  Laura Bergman did all the leg work and within a day of word getting out that we would have the match as a special added attraction main event, the tickets just flew out of the box office and we sold out the show.  We had people coming in from Chicago who obviously missed going to live HOW shows to purchase tickets for the show.  It just worked out so where on so many levels.

You were just involved in what was called a ‘theatrical match.’
Yes.  Darin Zion became involved in a storyline that ended up bleeding over to HOW.  ‘Defective’ Marty Pratt attacked him and his manager Meredith.  It escalated to this ‘theatrical match’ that aired today on HOTv and will air again tomorrow night in MVW’s time slot to blow off this storyline.  My children and step-children were involved in the production and we had a lot of fun doing it.

Can you give us an overview on how the first six months of the year went?
I think the word that comes to mind is ‘change.’  At Wrestling Night in America, we saw the end to the Sports Entertainment Corporation.  The new Men’s Champion John O’Reilly has joined up with the Dark Overlords of Wrestling.  Svetlana Kovaleski will be teaming up with Kay Daniels in the tag team division.  We are losing some folks.  ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann has decided to move on. The People’s Front of Berea are heading to Appalachian Mountain Championship Wrestling for a while.  We’ll talk about Charlie Blackwell and his future plans here in a moment.  I can also tell you that we will be having some wrestlers returning to MVW starting next month and as everyone I’m sure as heard, Adam Ellis is now the third person to graduate out of Joe Bergman’s Barn to sign a contract with MVW to the main roster.

Adam Ellis is also getting experience working for a big company.
That’s correct. After War Games, HOW’s John Sektor asked me if he could come to one of our shows and take a look at some of the young talent.  He saw Adam Ellis wrestle in a match and really was impressed by him.  And I am too.  John’s taken him under his wing and Adam’s giving it a go in HOW’s HOFC division.  Big time chance for Adam on a big time stage.  From experience I can tell you this is not an easy transition to make.  But Adam’s worked very hard for this opportunity and we’ll do everything in our power to support him.

And he won his first match.
Yes.  Very happy for him.

Charlie Blackwell
Well, Charlie hold told me a few months ago that he wanted to put together his own wrestling company.  Before Wrestling Night in America. Charlie made it clear that if he lost the title he was going to make his exit then.  He did and he’s left MVW.  Charlie’s been a great men’s champion.  He and I had some epic matches in 2017 and 2019.  He’s a smart man and he knows he’s put a lot of mileage on his body since that fateful day when he took a forty-foot bump at his first wrestling gig- a Dream Wrestling Federation pay per view show.  Charlie’s always going to be welcomed here.  I believe ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler has decided to join Charlie’s new venture and I don’t begrudge Dan that.  So thank you Charlie for everything and good luck.

August will be here soon.  What’s on tap?
Well as I said, we’ve got some returnees coming back.  We’ve got a HUGH Women’s title match the second weekend back between Women’s Champion Graysie Parker and Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.  Lisa has been itching to get another shot at Graysie after what she termed a disappointing effort last month.  We’ll see who lines up to be John O’Reilly’s first challenger as the new Men’s Champion.  We’ll see how the Kentucky Redneck Mafia react to being the Men’s tag team champions.  And the Hanson Sisters are just on fire right now.  With the demise of the Missouri Valley Fight Club, the Hansons may very well be the best team in MVW right now.

Last question.  After your appearance at HOW’s War Games, do you have any intention of stepping back into the ring again?
Hell no.  I think I got that out of my system for good.

Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland Presents:

MVW’s Wrestling Night in America Pay Per View Show Recap
Monday July 5th, 2021
Taped Last Night at the Hale Arena
Kansas City, MO

Announcer: Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall
Backstage Interviewer: Kellie Burkowski
Ring Announcer: Kimber Marshall

Kellie and Kimber1

A sellout crowd is crammed into the Hale Arena for Missouri Valley Wrestling’s first pay per view show of 2021 to see if John O’Reilly can pull off the biggest win of his young wrestling career tonight against arguably the best men’s wrestler to set foot in a MVW ring Charlie Blackwell.  To see if Shizuko Yamazaki can finally end Graysie Parker’s long Women’s title reign?  To see if this is the night Dawn McGill leads the Kentucky Redneck Mafia to the promised land when they challenge fellow Kentuckians The People’s Front of Berea for the Men’s Tag Team title?  To see if the Sports Entertainment Corporation (Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin) can somehow find a way to turn their fortunes around in what could be their last chance to win back the title when they challenge the team that wrestled the Women’s Tag Team title belts from them- The Hanson Sisters.

MVW Owner Ray McAvay Starts the Show
Still limping from his knee injury suffered while wrestling at High Octane Wrestling’s War Games Show last month, McAvay makes his way to the ring to welcome another sellout crowd to a MVW event.  He’s accompanied by his wife Stacee Perry-McAvay and she runs down tonight’s card as only she can.

After Stacee gets a standing ovation for her efforts, McAvay thanks everyone for coming to the show and thanks those who are watching on pay per view tonight.

McAvay thinks tonight’s card is as loaded as they come- especially if the Dark Overlords of Wrestling and the Southern Boys are kicking off the show- which starts NOW.

MATCH #1 – SIX MAN TAG MATCH
The Dark Overlords of Wrestling (‘Not Just Intolerable…Not Just Unbearable…He is…Justin Sufferable, ‘The Raconteur of Road Rage’ Triple R, ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido) managed by Jackson C. Horne
vs
The Southern Boys (‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson) managed by ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Two teams who have suddenly developed an intense hatred towards the other meet in our opening match of the night.

‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall: It all started when John O’Reilly knocked out ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson at a house show and then the Southern Boys- frustrated that they haven’t been able to regain the Men’s Tag Team title and a string of DQ losses- attacked O’Reilly.  The Dark Overlords of Wrestling came to O’Reilly’s aid.  The Southern Boys took exception to that.  And it’s been ‘on’ ever since.  With the regression of P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit and the imploding Sports Entertainment Corporation, the Dark Overlords of Wrestling have supplanted the SEC as the Southern Boys’ main arch-enemy.

Both teams exchange ‘pleasantries’ in the ring as referee Davey Keels tries to keep them separated.  Dan Williams and Justin Sufferable to start.

More talking takes place between Williams and Sufferable which would be a constant theme throughout the match.  Williams attacked early and often.  Sufferable played the counter wrestling game and kept the bigger man at bay.  Sufferable made Williams work hard and then tagged in ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido.  Williams walks right into a spinning heel kick.  Escondido hooked the leg for a two count. Escondido tags out to Triple R. Escondido and Triple R whip Williams into the corner and charge in for a hard double clothesline to follow-up.  Gassed, Williams just kicks out of a Triple R pinfall. ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson attack Triple R.  Sufferable and Escondido wade in and there’s a brief six man brawl in the ring.  Keels regains control and clears the ring but Dan Williams is exhausted and still in the ring.  Triple R with a spinning neckbreaker on Williams.  Cover… Dickinson in to break the pinfall and again Keels has to clear the ring a second time.

The fracas allows Williams to gather himself.  Triple R whips him into the ropes.  Williams counters a backdrop attempt with a kick to the face and makes it to his corner to tag in Dave Miller.  Miller hits a flying shoulder tackle to send Triple R to the Bodyslam by Miller who then stomps the hell out of Triple R.  Miller yanks Triple R up and drives him down with a brutal powerbomb. Pinfall attempt gets a 2.9999- this time Sufferable and Escondido make the save and again all six men are briefly in the ring. Running knee lift from Dave Miller.  He tags out to Bill Dickinson.  Dickinson unloads six right hands in succession to drive Triple R to the corner.  Dickinson headbutts Triple R and then lifts him up and drops him with a Spinebuster.  Cover…Triple R kicks out.  Dickinson goes for a Southern Fried Powerbomb.  Triple R slips out the back door and tags in Justin Sufferable.  Sufferable hits a flying kick on Dickinson.  Dickinson unloads some right bombs in return.

Sufferable with a single takedown and looks for a Figure Four.  Dickinson escapes and tags Dan Williams. Back in.  Dan Williams fires off some right and left hands.  Sufferable fights out of a grapple.  Sufferable goes to whip Williams to the ropes.  Williams reverses and sends Sufferable in  *WHAM* ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler with a forearm shot.  Sufferable drops to the mat in pain.  Referee Davey Keels immediately calls for the bell and the Southern Boys are disqualified.

WINNER VIA DISQUALIFICATION: The Dark Overlords of Wrestling @ 12:18

Post match, The Southern Boys- incensed at another disqualification instigated by ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler’s interference- confront Butler.  Screwed out of a title match by Butler’s repeatedly untimely meddling, Bill Dickinson is red hot and demands to know what the hell Butler’s doing. Miller and Williams- also pissed off as Butler’s interference cost them dearly in Rockford, Illinois two weeks ago when they lost to the Kentucky Redneck Mafia for a title shot tonight- shove Butler back and they want a piece of him as well.

From behind, Sufferable, Triple R, and Escondido attack Dickinson, Williams, and Miller with simultaneous steel folding chairshots to the back. The Dark Overlords of Wrestling commence to an old school beatdown of the three Southern Boys while Butler just stands there and watches.  That pisses off Haley Dallas and she goes up to Butler and tells him to get in there.  Butler looks down at the Texas Cowgirl.  He nods.  Then he lays her out with a Texas Lariat. Next, Dickinson, Williams, and Miller are hauled to their feet and Butler drops them one by one with a Texas Lariat.  Then he shakes hands with Sufferable, Triple R, Escondido… and manager Jackson C. Horne.

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Well.  I guess we should have seen that coming.

Rick Hall: We did Thunderbolt.  Except everyone thought the end result tonight would be the Southern Boys kicking Butler out of the group.  Instead, we’ve discovered that Butler royally screwed the Southern Boys over big time in costing Dickinson, Williams, and Miller title shots.  The Dark Overlords of Wrestling pick up a valuable fourth member in Butler.  The Southern Boys are going to have a few weeks to stew over what’s gone down here tonight. This ain’t over yet.

SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT CORPORATION DRESSING ROOM
The mood is somber inside the SEC’s dressing room.  Heartland (Women’s) Champion Sheline Carrigan and tag team Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin are the only ones in the room with a very resigned ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann.  Everyone else is gone.  Even the official mouthpiece of the SEC, Phil Finebaum, has just walked away.

McMann explains the following things have taken place:
-CSPN has officially cancelled their coverage of the SEC.
-Men’s Champion Charlie Blackwell has quit the SEC.
-Tag Team P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit has quit the SEC.
-Svetlana Kovaleski has walked out on the SEC as well.

Carrigan, Carmondy, and Tess are the only three left.  McMann informs them that tonight is the last night of the SEC.   He wishes everyone good luck tonight and lets all three know that they are on their own as of now.

And then he leaves the room.

MATCH #2 – HEARTLAND (WOMEN’S) TITLE MATCH
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan ©
vs.
Gigi Caruso

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Regardless of the status of the SEC, Sheline Carrigan marks three months as the Heartland champion.  She’s survived challenges from the likes of Carrieanne McDermott and Lisa Barbosa-Stevens. Tonight, she faces newcomer and former MMA fighter Gigi Caruso.  Caruso defeated Carrigan’s former SEC teammate Svetlana Kovaleski to earn her title opportunity.

Rick Hall: ‘The Canadian Cyborg’ was very familiar with Carrieanne McDermott and Lisa Barbosa-Stevens when she went up against both earlier.  However, she’s not very familiar with Gigi Caruso and Gigi Caruso will be a much different opponent than she’s used to seeing.  Carrigan’s strong as an ox but Caruso is tough as they come.  Gigi brings a mixed martial art offense repertoire to the table and will make things very interesting for the Heartland champion.

The crowd gets behind Caruso early on.  She hits a basement dropkick to the knee. Caruso dips into her bag of MMA tricks to attack Carrigan.  Caruso to the top rope.  Flying cross body off the top rope.  Caruso hooks the leg for a two count. Carrigan rolls out of the ring to regroup.  Back in.  Caruso with a waistlock.  Carrigan reverses.  Stiff right hands light up Caruso.  Carrigan connects with a pair of body slams.  Caruso staggers backward from a Superwoman punch. Carrigan hooks the leg for a two count. Caruso tries to roll out. Carrigan pulls her back in and scores with a standing spinebuster. Pinfall, but Caruso is out just before the three count.  Pumphandle Back Suplex to Gigi Caruso.  Caruso in trouble now, especially when Carrigan plants her with a Samoan Drop.  Cover…Caruso just kicks out and this time does escape from the ring.  Carrigan paces back and forth and gestures for Caruso to get back into the ring.

Back in.  Carrigan latches on with a headlock.  Caruso slips out.  Jumping headscissors by Caruso.  Carrigan goes to slam her down.  Caruso maneuvers to the ropes and trap Carrigan in a Rope Hung Cross Armbreaker.  Referee Brenda Qualls starts a five count.  Caruso releases at four.  Carrigan is down.  The crowd rises as Caruso snaps off a Tornado DDT, Carrigan got planted. Pin : 1 – 2 – 2.9999999.  Spin kick by Gigi Caruso to the face staggers Carrigan and now she’s in big trouble.  Standing leg lariat by Caruso.  Cover- Carrigan kicks out again.  Carrigan ducks a kick from Caruso and tackles her. Elbow shots on the deck connects.  Qualls starts a five count and Carrigan lets up. Caruso staggers backward. Death Valley Driver by Carrigan.  Carrigan eschews a cover and sets Caruso up for her finisher… CANADIAN DESTROYER!  Cover.  1….2….3!! It’s all over.

WINNER AND STILL HEARTLAND (WOMEN’S) CHAMPION: ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan @ 8:14

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith: The Canadian Cyborg does it again but it’s not an easy win.

Rick Hall: No it wasn’t Thunderbolt.  Gigi Caruso looked good in there tonight with a powerhouse in Sheline Carrigan.  She’s coming on fast and gave Sheline a bit of a scare.  But Carrigan is also a seasoned ring veteran now and she withstood Caruso’s furious rally late in the match.  But we should be seeing more from Gigi in the future.

DARK OVERLORDS OF WRESTLING INTERVIEW
Kellie Burkowski has the Dark Overlords of Wrestling with her.  Manager Jackson C. Horne with Triple R, Justin Sufferable, Chris Escondido, and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler.

Horne declares the Dark Overlords of Wrestling are stronger with the addition of a fourth member of the group.  He tells Kellie the DOW showed ‘those stupid redneck’ the Southern Boys they you do an old fashioned, old school ass whipping.  Horne says in the dictionary under the word ‘old school heels’ you would find a picture of the Dark Overlords of Wrestling.  He’s kept his mouth shut for two years now but he’s had enough.  It’s time to show the outlaw, mudshow element of Missouri Valley Wrestling the door and get back to wrestling the way it should be.

Kellie then turns to ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler and asks why he turned on the Southern Boys.  Butler explains that he was tired as hell of being the fourth wheel of the group.  When a wrestling legend such as Jackson C. Horne comes to you and asks you to go into business with them against Dickinson, Miller, and Williams, he’d be a fool not to take him up on his offer to become the fourth member of the Dark Overlords of Wrestling.

Horne then corrects Butler and tells him he is NOT the fourth member of the DOW.   Butler’s confused.  Then Sufferable and Triple blast Butler with a double chairshot.  Escondido stomps away at Butler on the floor and then the three exit.

Horne tells Kellie there IS a fourth member of the group and he’ll be unveiled tonight.  He then leaves.

MATCH #3 – HEARTLAND (MEN’S) TITLE MATCH:
Average Joe © managed by Tequila Sheila
vs.
Ken Kardoucheian managed by Khris Kardoucheian

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Average Joe has been the Heartland champion for two months now and just successfully defended his title against Ken Kardoucheian four weeks ago in Urbandale, Iowa.  This is Kardoucheian’s second attempt at dethroning Average Joe as the Heartland champion.

Rick Hall: This could be interesting.  The Kardouchieans have returned to Missouri Valley Wrestling following the untimely end to their wildly successful reality show ‘Krampin’ Up with the Kardoucheians’ looking to strike gold in a different industry- pro wrestling.  Tonight is Ken’s opportunity to show that the Kardoucheians have a little substance when it comes to the squared circle.  But in his way is a man that you simply cannot overlook.  Average Joe has been around for a long time and nothing that the Kardoucheian’s offer is going to faze him.

The Kardoucheians come to the ring with all the glitz and glamour of a Hollywood production to a chorus of boos.  Average Joe pops the crowd when he walks down with his Truckin’ Average Company faction mates to the ring.

After Family Patriarch Khris Kardoucheian gives Ken a pep talk, Referee Ron Martin calls for the bell.

Average Joe and Kardoucheian circle.  Lock up.  Armdrag takedown by Average Joe.  Double arm suplex sends Ken down to the mat.  Vertical suplex by Average Joe.  He covers.  Ken kicks out at two and immediately his brothers Koley and Kourtney pull him out of the ring.  Khris Kardoucheian complains to Ron Martin about something as Ken takes five and regroups.  Eventually Ken comes back and Average Joe drives a thrust kick into his chest. Cover… Ken kicks out at two and again Khris is on the apron shouting something at Ron Martin.  Kardoucheian ducks a short arm clothesline and hits a basement dropkick to the knee. Flying reverse elbow by Ken and he goes for the pin. Two count.  Both men up and Ken starts to taunt Average Joe.  That proves to be a costly mistake when Average Joe kicks Kardoucheian in the gut to reverse the momentum.  Tiger bomb by Average Joe into a roll up. Cover for a two count.  Ken tries to call for time out.

Average Joe drags him to the top rope- Belly to Belly Suplex off the top rope.  Cover… last second kick-out. Ken Kardoucheian rakes the eyes to regain the initiative. Dropkick connects, Average Joe goes down.  Ken covers.  Average Joe kicks out emphatically.  Average Joe comes up with a right hand out of nowhere that causes Ken to careen across the ring.  Stun Gun sets up the finisher… AVERAGE SLAM.  1….2….3.

WINNER AND STILL HEARTLAND (MEN’S) CHAMPION: Average Joe @ 7:07

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
And Average Joe again thwarts the Kardoucheians bid for their first MVW gold.

Rick Hall: It’s the same old stuff Thunderbolt.  The Kardoucheians have been in and out of here for four years now.  They get themselves into these types of positions but when the competition gets tougher the Kardoucheians flop miserably.  What’s the Kardoucheians’ most memorable MVW moment?  Ken Kardoucheian’s dream date with Dawn McGill in 2017.  Period. They need to find a way to get better in the ring.

KARDOUCHEIANS CONFRONT RICK HALL
Khris Kardoucheian overhears Hall’s comment and confronts him at the broadcast desk.  Kardoucheian demands to know what right Hall has to pass judgment on his sons- legitimate world-wide stars- when Hall is a nobody who never was, never well achieve the success they had.  Hall stands up and there’s a face to face showdown. Hall tells Kardoucheian that he stands one hundred and fifty percent behind what he said.  The Kardoucheians have held up their end of the deal when it comes to their wrestling career.  Koley and Kourtney Kardoucheian attack Hall from behind and there’s a brief scuffle at ringside before MVW security race in to put a quick halt to the fracas.

Security moves the Kardoucheians- still angry and yelling back at Rick Hall- on to the back and the show goes on.

MATCH #4 – SPECIAL ATTRACTION MATCH
Yamamoto Tanaka Jr.
vs.
Raidon Hirayama

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Next, we have a matchup of two young Japanese wrestling from Japan Big Time Wrestling getting a showcase here.

Rick Hall: That’s right.  Last month, Japan Big Time Wrestling Owner Yamamoto Tanaka did MVW Owner Ray McAvay a huge favor when he allowed Darin Zion and Ultratron-6 to wrestle on one of their cards at Korakuen Hall.  Both McAvay and Zion were in Tokyo for High Octane Wrestling’s War Games show. Tonight, McAvay pays Tanaka back by showcasing two of his wrestlers- one of them his son- at Wrestling Night at America.

The referee for this match will be Japan Big Time Wrestling’s Fumitaka Goto

The bell rings and Tanaka slowly circles with Hirayama. Hirayama attacks first.  Tanaka blocks a kick and shoves Hirayama down.  Hirayama gets up and Tanaka pie faces him!  Hirayama against rushes in.  Headlock by Tanaka into a takedown.  Hirayama gets up and headlocks Tanaka.  Tanaka escapes and again headlocks Hirayama.  This time he really grinds Hirayama.   Hirayama slips out.  Belly to belly suplex by Hirayama.  Cover. Tanaka kicks out at two.  Tanaka back with a headlock.  They end up on ropes and a break is called.  Tanaka gets up and under for a fireman’s carry, Hirayama slips off and runs the ropes. Hirayama ducks an elbow.  He stops, turns, and kicks Tanaka.  Tanaka blocks. Hirayama blocks a Tanaka strike.  He rolls to get an ankle.  Tanaka rolls away. Hirayama goes for a sleeper, but Tanaka RAMS Hirayama into the corner turnbuckle.  Hirayama hobbles out.  Tanaka gets him for a backbreaker!   He throws Hirayama in a corner and peppers him with chops, clubbing rights and lefts, and then CHOPS the hell out of him.

Hirayama staggers forward.  Fireman’s carry by Tanaka into a jackhammer slam.  Cover.  Hirayama just kicks out before 3.  Hirayama rallies back and throws body shots. Tanaka fires back with right hands to Hirayama.  Hirayama forearms back. Tanaka DECKS him with a short-arm clothesline! Tanaka digs boots into Hirayama’s face.  The referee starts a count and Tanaka backs off.  Tanaka gets Hirayama up to lay in the chops again!  Tanaka brings Hirayama around for a butterfly suplex! Cover, again Hirayama just kicks out in time.  Tanaka wraps Hirayama up in a bearhug and heaves him into the corner.   Tanaka climbs up the corner turnbuckle.  He drags Hirayama up with him.  Tanaka sticks Hirayama’s head between his legs.  Sets.  JAPANESE SUPER-DESTROYER!  Hirayama’s done.  He lays motionless on the mat.  Tanaka rolls over and makes the academic cover.  1… 2… 3!

WINNER: Yamamoto Tanaka, Jr. @ 9:18

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
An impressive victory in the American debut of Yamamoto Tanaka, Jr.

Rick Hall: Yamamoto Tanaka was a hell of a wrestler in his prime.  Four-time PCW champion before his knees wore out and put an end to his career.  His son is not as tall as he was.  Junior is only six foot five and weighs a slim two hundred and twenty-four pounds but man he’s got some of the same mannerisms that the old man had.  And the same talent.  And the same nasty-ass finisher.  Fun match.

BACKSTAGE
Actually, we go to the back bay where the Southern Boys’ ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams are loaded into two ambulances.

Also helped out to a third ambulance is ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler.  ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller sees him and immediately attacks.  Miller tackles Butler and starts raining down rights and lefts before MVW Security intervenes and pulls him off.

Butler eventually is loaded into a third ambulance.  Miller climbs into the one with Dan Williams inside and all three vehicles leave.

Rick Hall: Gee.  I sure hope Butler’s ambulance doesn’t go to the same hospital.  That could be bad.

MATCH #5 – MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH

Over a month ago, the Hanson Sisters destroyed the, then, SEC to win the ladies’ tag team belt.  Tonight, Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin… wrestling as Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin… face the Hansons again.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Christa and Tessa have fallen down the rankings since the Hanson Sisters won the tag belts from them.  Some of it can be attributed to a let down after losing the belts.  Some of it could be blamed on the unrest and uncertainty with the SEC as they were falling apart. But regardless, they held a firm grip on the tag belts for most of the first four months of the year and they earned this shot at regaining their titles.  Can they do it?  We’ll see.

Christa Carmondy and Andrea Hanson will start out.  Andrea races forward- Carmondy stops her with a basement dropkick to the knee.  Spin kick drops Andrea and Carmondy follows with a big legdrop. There’s a two count on the pin.  Christa lifts and plants Andrea with a Vertical Suplex. Cover.  Andrea kicks out at two.  Carmondy tags in Tessa Martin and they whip Andrea into the ropes. Doubleteam Neckbreaker.  Cover- Melissa makes the save at two.  Carmondy attacks Melissa and they brawl out of the ring.  Tess with a dropkick.  Whip to the ropes, Martin walks into a Drop Toehold.  Andrea tags out to Melissa Hanson.  Melissa comes in hot with right hands.  Christa shouts ‘closed fist.’ Tess trapped in the corner.  Melissa checks her.  Elbow to the face staggers Tess.  Bodyslam by Melissa. Cover.  Tess just kicks out in time.  Melissa drives her head into Tessa Martin’s midsection.  She hooks the legs. Tessa kicks out super late again.  Martin rakes the eyes and then boots Melissa in the groin.

She tags to Christa Carmondy.  Lightning kick by Carmondy on Melissa.  Vicious Front Kick to the face sends Melissa whirling down to the mat.  Pin : 1 – 2 – ANDREA MAKES THE SAVE AT 2.9999999.  Again, Tess in and tackles Andrea.  Spinning back kick from Christa Carmondy.  She covers but referee Corinna Romanov is busy shooing Tessa Martin and Andrea Hanson from the ring.  Christa slams her hand down in frustration.  Melissa rolls her up from behind.  Christa kicks out at two.  Right hand clocks Carmondy.  Massive backbreaker by Melissa.  Cover.  TESS MAKES THE SAVE!  Now Coach Reg is up on the apron and she’s having a conversation with the referee.  Melissa scores with a forearm.  Andrea throws a hockey stick out to her.  *WHACK*  DOWN GOES CARMONDY!   Roll up.  Tess in.  Andrea in.  1… 2… Andrea takes Tess down.  THREE!  Romanov calls for the bell.

WINNER AND STILL MVW WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Hanson Sisters @ 9:46

Charissa Hanson joins the fun as she yanks Tess around the neck from behind… SCORPION DEATHDROP!

The Hanson Sisters reign supreme and hold up their title belts.

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Very competitive match as Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin put all the SEC strife behind them and went right at the Hansons.

Rick Hall: Christa and Tessa are Missouri Valley Originals and they have a lot of pride in what they do and that’s what came out tonight.  But the Hansons under Coach Reg have raised their performance to an elite level and have become just about unbeatable.

Thunderbolt Smith: Where do Christa and Tessa go from here?

BACKSTAGE
A dejected Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin walk back towards their dressing room.  Who’s waiting for them?

Harley Davisson- late of the Missouri Valley Fight Club.

Davisson says she’s got some ‘business’ to discuss with them.  Carmondy and Tess say okay and all three go into the dressing room.

Rick Hall: That might be one answer.

MATCH #6 – MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH
People’s Front of Berea (Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker) © with Manager Zeb Morris
vs.
Kentucky Redneck Mafia (Cletus T. Johnson and Enos T. Johnson) with ‘The Manager of Champions’ Dawn McGill

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
The People’s Front of Berea have proven to be a very good tag team as they enter the fifth month of their title reign.  Tonight, a new challenge comes from some in-state rivals in the form of the Kentucky Redneck Mafia.

Rick Hall: People forget that originally at MVW’s Spring supershow at the Lake of the Ozarks that these two teams were supposed to join together for a war games-style match.  Unfortunately, Cletus and Enos got concussed at the hands of wrestling legend Eric Dane and took them out of the match.  Since then, the KRM have been on a tear.  Dawn McGill has these guys focused on one thing and one thing only- the Men’s Tag Team title.  But do not sell the People’s Front of Berea short.  Foster and Walker have improved so much over the past year and a half and they are true champions.  They’ve fended off the Southern Boys.  Tonight, it’s a new challenge and this should be very interesting.

Ron Martin is the referee and he calls for the bell.

Dayle Joe Foster and Cletus T. Johnson to start.  Cletus gets the jump and dishes out some punishment. Cletus slams Foster down. Hooks the leg for a two count.  Another slam by Cletus.  Another pinfall.  Another kick out by Foster.  Cletus tags out to Enos T. Johnson. Cletus scoops up Foster. Enos bounces off the ropes and hits a flying clothesline. Enos covers.  Foster kicks out at the two count.  All KRM so far and the PFB’s manager Zeb Morris looks concerned.  Enos with right hands drives Foster to the corner.  He rushes in. Foster avoids an avalanche and moves for his corner.  Walker tags in and he lands a series of right hands.  Airplane Spin to Enos.  FIREMAN’S CARRY TAKEOVER!  Walker covers.  NO!  There’s a two count on the pin.  Enos sent to the ropes.  Pop up.  Sit Out Powerbomb!  Walker rolls him up.  Cletus makes the save at two.  Flying reverse elbow by Walker. Cover, but there’s another last second kick-out.  Walker forces Enos to a corner, but lets off as the ref starts a count.

Walker with a boot.  Enos catches.  Walker hits an Enziguri.  Cover.  Enos kicks out at two.  Walker headlocks.  Enos powers out but Walker sunset flips him.  Enos kicks out yet again.  McGill shouts at Enos to get to the corner.  Walker stays on top of him.  Enos gets the shoulder up at two.  Walker drags him to the PFB corner and tags Dayle Joe Foster back in.  Cletus sticks a foot through the ropes.  Martin tells him to stay put.  Doubleteam body slam to Enos leaves him prone on the mat.  Foster goes up top.  He leaps.  Enos avoids the senton! He finally makes the hot tag to Cletus and he hurries in.  Right hand to Foster.  Right hand to Walker on the apron.  Right hand to Zeb Morris on the apron.  Cletus up top! Missile Dropkick and Foster is down!  Cover.  Foster kicks out.  Cletus is fired up.  He runs in and Shoulder Blocks Foster.  Cover.  Again Foster kicks out.  Waistlock by Cletus. Foster bucks him off.  Roundhouse kick by Cletus catches Foster flush.  Roll up. 1… 2… NO!  Foster got a shoulder up at 2.99999.  Dayle Joe punts Cletus in the package and dives for his corner.

Walker in.  Cletus tags in Enos.  Walker slams Enos down.  Cover.  Enos kicks out.  Walker and Enos start throwing haymakers back and forth.  Referee Ron Martin warns both about closed fist punches.  Enos takes charge.  He slams Ezekiel Walker down and tags out to Cletus T. Johnson.  Cletus up top.   Big Flying Elbow connects.  Cover… NO!  Walker kicks out at two.  Enos tries to keep Walker in the corner but he escapes between Enos’s legs and tags Dayle Joe Foster back in.  Enos slams Foster down.  Foster up.  Enos slams him again.  Enos goes up top.  SPLASH.  Leg hooked.  1… 2… NO!  Ezekiel Walker makes the save.  All four men brawl inside the ring.  SLEEPER HOLD ON FOSTER!  Cletus fights with Walker.  Enos hangs on to the Sleeper hold for all it’s worth.  Zeb Morris in the ring.  Dawn McGill in the ring.  She intercepts Zeb and hits a Lungblower on the PFB’s manager.  Cletus throws Walker through the rope to the floor.  WALKER TAPS!  Referee Ron Martin calls for the bell and we have NEW Men’s Tag Team champions.

WINNER AND NEW MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Kentucky Redneck Mafia @ 15:04

Referee Ron Martin hands the Johnson boys the title belts.

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Unbelievable.  The Kentucky Redneck Mafia have done it.  They’ve won the Men’s Tag Team title.

Rick Hall: Dawn McGill deserves some credit here.  In January, Dawn had no clients.  Then the Kentucky Redneck Mafia came along and gave her new lease on life.  She also had to bring the KRM back from absolute disaster after Cletus and Enos got concussions courtesy of Eric Dane and McGill just got destroyed by Graysie Parker in the cage match at MVW’s Spring Fling in April.  Since hitting rock bottom, the Kentucky Redneck Mafia have been nothing but all business and the work they’ve done has paid off handsomely.

JOHN SEKTOR SIGHTING IN THE CROWD
HOTv camera catch High Octane Wrestling’s Gold Standard in the crowd tonight- one John Sektor.  HOW’s LSD Champion is here to watch his new protegee Adam Ellis wrestle in tonight’s dark match before the show.

Thunderbolt notes that Ellis destroyed President James Summers of the Edge Water Homeowners Association in less than two minutes in the match, displaying new tactics and a sharper edge to his offensive repertoire.

Hall chimes in that Sektor was very pleased with the youngster’s effort and adds that Adam Ellis will be making his High Octane Wrestling debut this weekend at HOW’s Refueled 67 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Back to the action.  It’s time for main event number one.

MAIN EVENT #1- MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TITLE
The Iron Butterfly’ Graysie Parker ©
vs
‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki with Coach E.J. Flack

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
This rivalry dominated the Women’s division for much of the first half of the year.

Rick Hall: Shizuko Yamazaki accounts for Graysie Parker’s one and only loss here in MVW- by disqualification.  Parker continues to be head over heels above the rest of the pack in the Women’s division.  Yamazaki has been one of the few who’s been able to put together a credible challenge to the champion.  Big night for Shizuko as Lisa Barbosa-Stevens has passed her in the rankings and will face the winner of this match on August 15th in Springfield, Missouri.

Corrina Romanov is the referee and she calls for the bell.

Parker and Yamazaki meet face to face in the center of the ring.  Yamazaki’s manager Coach E.J. Flack shouts NARFLE THE GARTHOK! which elicits the same response from the crowd.  Parker with arm wringer. Standing switch by Yamazaki.  Standing switch by Parker. Yamazaki sent to the ropes.  Ducks a clothesline and hops to the top rope.  Missile dropkick on Parker. Series of low kicks by Yamazaki.  Hammerlock STO takes Parker down.  She covers- 2 count.  Lock up.  Parker elbows Yamazaki in the face.  Belly to Belly suplex from Parker.  Parker snap suplexes Yamazaki.  Bridging Capture Suplex Hooks the leg.  Yamazaki kicks out at 2.   Jumping Powerbomb nearly kills Yamazaki. Cover- last second kick-out.  Parker’s on fire. Yamazaki tastes a High Angle Back Suplex.  Parker tries to close it out.  Shizuko Yamazaki refuses to give up.  Lock up.  Yamazaki in control now and sends Parker to the corner.  POP UP KNEE STRIKE.  Parker wobbles and then falls.  Yamazaki covers.  Parker kicks out at 2.

Diving headbutt from Yamazaki.  Off the ropes- Hip Attack!  Parker down. Cover 1 – 2 – 2.9999999.  Parker’s frustrated.  Wild right hand misses.  Yamazaki hooks a leg- Leg Hooked German Suplex takes Parker down. Cover. Parker kicks out at 2.  Flack slams his fists on the mat encouraging Yamazaki.  Arm drag to Parker. Yamazaki hits a quick kick.  Parker ducks out of a Enziguri and hits a spinning back kick.  Yamazaki’s stunned.  Parker out of the corner- NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX.  Parker on the hunt now.  GRAYSIE BOMB (Vader Bomb).  Parker cover.  Yamazaki kicks out at two and can barely stand up now.  Parker hits three consecutive Rolling Gutwrench Suplexes- LOS TRES MUHARES.  Yamazaki’s in trouble now.  Parker sets.  She delivers.  GRAYSIE DRIVER (Pumphandle Stuff Piledriver).  Good night.  1….2…3, it is finished.

WINNER AND STILL MVW WOMEN’S CHAMPION: ‘The Iron Butterfly’ Graysie Parker @ 9:33

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Graysie Parker once again turns back the challenge of Shizuko Yamazaki.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Yamazaki gave it everything she had.  She had Parker on the ropes but as the Women’s Champion has proven time and time again, it’s going to take an extraordinary effort to knock her off the pedestal.  Especially now that Parker appears to be done with Action Wrestling and may be putting her full attention to Missouri Valley Wrestling in the short term.  Not good news for the women’s division.

DAWN McGILL CALLED TO THE OFFICE
McGill enters Ray McAvay’s office and wonders why she’s been called in.  McAvay congratulates Dawn on her team’s win.  He realizes that she’s been through a lot the past few weeks and just wanted to let her know that he was happy that she stuck with it because he knew just how bleak things were six months ago.

McGill wipes a tear away and thanks Ray.  Then… Mr. McMann shows up?

Things get tense for a second but McMann comes in and does the most inexplicable thing- he apologizes to McGill for everything he’s ever done to her– including the events that may have led to her divorce from McAvay.

He thanks McAvay and says it’s probably time for him to move along.  They shake hands and McMann leaves.

POST-SEGMENT COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
Have to comment on this one.  I think this officially puts an end to the Sports Entertainment Corporation.

Rick Hall: Yes it does.  Everything that’s happened over the past five years between Mr. McMann and Dawn McGill and it all ends with a sincere apology to Dawn McGill and a handshake to Ray McAvay.  An era has just ended in MVW.

MAIN EVENT #2-MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S TITLE
Charlie Blackwell ©
vs.
John O’Reilly

PREVIEW:
Thunderbolt Smith:
All right.  Charlie Blackwell versus John O’Reilly for the title.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, John O’Reilly has knocked out Blackwell twice at house shows.  He’s knocked out ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson to earn title shots twice.  He’s got dynamite in his right hand but Blackwell’s proven that he is by far the superior wrestler in each of their other title encounters.  O’Reilly’s made gradual improvement inside the ring over the months.  Has he made enough improvement to finally break through and defeat Charlie Blackwell for the title?  Also, has any of the fallout of the Sports Entertainment Corporation’s demise distracted Blackwell?  We’ll find out soon enough.

Referee Davey Keels calls for the bell.

They circle.  Blackwell tries for a takedown.  O’Reilly sidesteps.  Blackwell stands up. O’Reilly strikes Blackwell his right hand- not cleanly though.  Blackwell ducks a second punch and hits a desperation spinning kick to the jaw.  O’Reilly and Blackwell both hurt early.  Crowd on their feet.  Blackwell up to the top rope. Splash- no O’Reilly pops him with a second right hand.  Hard back suplex on Blackwell. O’Reilly crushes Blackwell with a running clothesline. Power drive elbow by John O’Reilly. Hooks the leg  1 – 2 – 2.9999999.  Blackwell back to his feet- he can barely stand. CANNONBALL RIGHT HAND!  1… 2… THREE!  NEW CHAMPION!

WINNER AND NEW MVW MEN’S CHAMPION: John O’Reilly @ 3:09

The crowd roars as O’Reilly is handed the title belt.

POST-MATCH COMMENTS:
Thunderbolt Smith:
John O’Reilly did it!  He finally did it.  He knocked Charlie Blackwell out to become the new MVW Men’s Champion.

Rick Hall: That first shot didn’t connect clean but it really took Blackwell out of his game.  Blackwell got one desperation spin kick to slow the onslaught but when he got Charlie the second time with that right hand it was just a matter of time.  O’Reilly wrestled a smart, measured, and efficient match and now he is the new champion.

Then Jackson C. Horne comes to the ring followed by the Dark Overlords of Wrestling (Justin Sufferable, Triple R, Chris Escondido).  They join the new champion in the ring.

Horne extends his hand.  O’Reilly shakes it.  O’Reilly is now a part of the Dark Overlords of Wrestling.

Horne raises O’Reilly’s arm as the show comes to end.

Backstage Interviewer: Kellie Burkowski
Ring Announcer: Kimber Marshall

Kellie and KimberHall and Thunderbolt
Kellie Burkowski, Kimber Marshall, ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, Thunderbolt Smith

Cut to Thunderbolt Smith and Rick Hall at ringside.

Thunderbolt Smith: Hello and welcome to Missouri Valley Wrestling’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv!

Thunderbolt Smith: We are in Kansas City, Missouri following Wrestling Night in America and for the next hour, we will recap what happened here tonight. With me as always, ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall . . .

Rick gives an Orange Cassidy-style half-assed wave.

Rick Hall: Hey.

Thunderbolt Smith: Lots of things went down tonight.  Let’s not waste any time and get right to it.

BACKSTAGE INCIDENT
That’s right.  The show starts off with a backstage incident involving ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1, Hawaii Five-One-Five-O, and The Murder Hornets.

Ultratron-5.1
‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1

All five men are found unconscious backstage by Todd the Backstage Technician who immediately calls out for help.

Thunderbolt Smith: And thus it began.

Rick Hall: The first casualties of the evening are Ultratron-5.1’s Army who get decimated before the show even begins.

Thunderbolt Smith: Ultratron-5.1 has been feuding with the Sports Entertainment Corporation.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, this might be the first shot across the bow.  This is going to be a very interesting evening.

MATCH #1-
J.J. Bittinger and Jack Fraiser vs. Rah and Corey Beckett
Bittinger and Fraiser jockey for position in the Men’s title picture.  Rah is a contender in the Heartland division.  Beckett is having his coming out party as he gets his first taste of big time MVW action.

Rah
‘The Sunshine God’ Rah

Rah does the best that he can.  Beckett is solid in his first big outing and has a couple good moments.  But Bittinger and Fraiser are both much more seasoned than the rookie and that proves to be Rah and Beckett’s undoing.  Bittinger locks Beckett up in the Bear Trap and the youngster is forced to tap out.

WINNER: J.J. Bittinger and Jack Fraiser @ 6:32

J.J. BittingerJack Fraiser
J.J. Bittinger and Jack Fraiser

Thunderbolt Smith: J.J. and Fraiser worked well together against Rah and Corey Beckett but you know that there’s gears moving in both man’s brains.

Rick Hall: Exactly.  They are rivals.  They are vying for position.  It would have been easy for either man to try to sabotage the other during the match but both acted professionally and walk away with the victory.

POST MATCH
Bittinger goes up to Beckett and whispers something in his ear.  Beckett acknowledges what he says.  There’s a handshake and a slap to Beckett’s back from the former MVW Men’s Champion.

Thunderbolt Smith: That was nice to see.  Especially after the pre-match beatdown of Ultratron-5.1.

Rick Hall: J.J.’s been there before.  He know what it means to get through your first big wrestling match in front of five thousand people.  Classy move on his part.

BACKSTAGE INCIDENT
Dawn McGill finds both members of the Dark Overlords of Wrestling (‘‘Not Just Unbearable…Not Just Intolerable…He is…’ Justin Sufferable and ‘The Raconteur of Road Rage’ Triple R) lying in a pool of their own blood.

Dark OverlordsMcGill headshot
‘‘Not Just Unbearable…Not Just Intolerable…He is…’ Justin Sufferable, ‘The Raconteur of Road Rage’ Triple R, and Dawn McGill

Dawn grabs a passerby and demands to know what he saw.  The passerby reports seeing a masked man wielding a lead pipe running away from the scene.

Medical personnel rush to the scene and attend to both men.  Hands balled into fists, McGill vows to track down the person out who did this and dish out her own form of personal justice when she gets her hands on them.

Thunderbolt Smith: And we’re off.

Rick Hall: Yeah.  First Ultratron-5.1’s Army.  Now The Dark Overlords get taken out.  I think the suspect list on this is going to be a short one.

Thunderbolt Smith: The SEC?

Rick Hall: As I said, the suspect list is a short one.

MATCH #2-SIX MAN TAG TEAM:
Truckin’ Average Company (Average Joe/Brad Company/Ken Worth) vs. The Southern Boys (‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller/‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams/Buckshot Henderson)
The Southern Boys will look to make a statement against the TAC.  Buckshot Henderson tags with Miller and Williams because Cowboy’ Dan Butler and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson are wrestling in title matches later on in the show.

Even match through the first five minutes.  Miller hits a big move on Worth and then gets blindsided by a lead pipe shot to the back by the masked man causing an immediate disqualification.

WINNER: The Southern Boys (‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller/‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams/Buckshot Henderson) via DQ @ 5:30

POST MATCH:
Williams jumps into the ring and he gets whapped by the lead pipe.  The masked man departs when Henderson confronts him and the SEC- in the form of the Hired Guns (Bobby Ricky Michaels/Marty Gibson-Lane) and Kirk Walstreit and P.M.C. Banks hit the ring.  Henderson gets tossed from the ring and the four attack the Southern Boys.

‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler races to the ring to try and help.  He ends up succumbing to the numbers game and eats a cornet shot to the head by the SEC’s Chief of Security Jackson C. Horne.  Michaels, Gibson-Lane, Walstreit, and Banks all take turns delivering their finisher to Miller, Williams, and Butler before leaving when MVW security finally arrived on scene to break up the fracas.

Thunderbolt Smith: There seems to be a pattern developing here.

Rick Hall: Ya think?  My question is where in the hell was Bill Dickinson during this?  Yes, he has a Men’s title defense at the show but ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler tried to help.

Thunderbolt Smith: Let’s just call it a developing situation.

Rick Hall: Butler didn’t get the worst of this.  Both Miller and Williams were stretchered out as well with Butler insisting on staying to face ‘No Frill’s Chris Escondido for the Men’s Heartland title.

MATCH #3-WINNER FACES WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPION AT MVW HOUSE SHOW 7/11 IN VALPARAISO, IN:
Stage One- #3 Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose vs. #4 People’s Front of Berea (KY): Kellyanne Morris and Bailey Foster
Geena’s power is too much for Morris and Foster.  Rose nails Foster with the Louisville Slugger and sets it up for Geena to finish her off with the G-Factor.  They move on.

GeenaEliza Rose

STAGE ONE WINNER: Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose @ 4:11

Stage Two- Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose vs. #2 The Hanson Sisters: Andrea and Melissa
This is a wild free for all – as expected – from the get go.  The Hansons do what the Hanson Sisters do.  Geena tries to use her strength to slow them down while Rose tries not to give the Hansons a static target to tee off on.

In the end, Rose gets planted by a massive backbreaker from Andrea Hanson. She tags out to Geena the Warrior Princess who runs right into a big backdrop.  Melissa Hanson tags in and hits a bulldog off the ropes. Spinebuster by Melissa followed by a nasty Death Valley driver.  Cover.  Geena kicks out at two and makes the desperate tag to Rose.  Eliza Rose then gets planted by a body slam.  Rose back up- Melissa floors her with a lariat.  Melissa sets and waits- Rose up- CHECK!-Mate sends Rose flying through the air to the other side of the mat.  Andrea and Charissa Hanson attack Geena.  Melissa makes the cover.  1….2….3!! It’s all over.

STAGE TWO WINNER: The Hanson Sisters: Andrea and Melissa @ 12:29

Hanson Sisters
The Hanson Sisters

Thunderbolt Smith: First off, good on Geena and Eliza for slogging it out for nearly seventeen minutes.  That being said, stage two of the match lasted over twelve minutes alone and was real fun to watch.

Rick Hall: The Hanson Sisters have had their ups and downs in MVW.  But they finally smash through the ceiling and now they will face the O’Neders in Valparaiso, Indiana July eleventh for the Women’s Tag Team title.  It wasn’t pretty.  But the Hansons took advantage of Geena tiring late to finally put the screws to her and Eliza Rose and then Melissa Hanson hit her finisher to close out the match.  I am looking forward to the Hansons versus The O’Neders.  Going to be another fun one.

DAYLE JOE FOSTER ATTACKED IN THE PEOPLE’S FRONT OF BEREA’S DRESSING ROOM
The already busy medical personnel have arrived on scene and tend to the wounded Foster.  A witness tells a medic that a masked man ran out of the dressing room holding a lead pipe.  Zeb Morris, leader of the People’s Front of Berea, is furious along with the rest of the PLB on hand: Ezekiel Walker, Kellyanne Morris, Bailey Foster, and Delaney Foster.

PFB (men's)
Back: Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker
Front: Zeb Morris

Zeb calls it a deliberate hit job and points the finger right at the SEC.

Ray McAvayMr. McMann
MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay and ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann

This incident brings MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay to the dressing room as well as the CEO of the SEC ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann.  McMann says the People’s Front of Berea can’t defend the Men’s Tag Title tonight and badgers McAvay to declare Foster ‘medically unfit.’  McAvay asks McMann what he wants him to do after that.  McMann responds that the ‘obvious thing to do’ is award the tag belts to Kirk Walstreit and P.M.C. Banks.

McAvay declines and makes an on the fly ruling.  He invokes the ‘Freebird rule’ and tells Zeb Morris he can wrestle in Foster’s place if he can’t wrestle tonight or the PLB can forfeit the title. Reluctantly and with no real alternative, Morris agrees to team up with Ezekiel Walker against the SEC to defend the tag belts.

This enrages McMann who again accuses McAvay of being biased against the SEC.  McAvay ignores him and leaves the dressing room.

Thunderbolt Smith: Okay.  Now things are getting real interesting.

Rick Hall: Zeb Morris is dead on here.  Ultratron-5.1’s Army.  The Dark Overlords of Wrestling.  Eliminating half of the Southern Boys.  And now Dayle Joe Foster.  It’s pretty obvious what’s going on here.  The SEC is trying to exert as much influence as possible in order to tilt the playing field in their favor.

Thunderbolt Smith: Leaving Ray McAvay in a bind.

Rick Hall: Well, short of stopping the show and conducting a full scale investigation behind the attacks which would leave about five thousand people in the arena a little put off, there’s not much McAvay can do.

MATCH #4-WINNER FACES WOMEN’S CHAMPION AT MVW HOUSE SHOW 7/11 IN VALPARAISO, IN:
Stage One- #3 ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki vs. #4 ‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot
Yamazaki and Harlot have a knockdown, drag out nine minute slugfest.  Harlot nearly traps The Shadow Warrior in her White Trash Compactor.  But Yamazaki overcomes Harlot and finishes her with the Cranial Contusion.

Shizuko Yamazaki

STAGE ONE WINNER: ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki @ 9:32

Stage Two- Shizuko Yamazaki vs. #2 Christa Carmondy
Now it’s on.  Carmondy’s the veteran here in this match.  Yamazaki the young, up and comer who is what Christa Carmondy used to be.  With Dawn McGill in her corner, can Yamazaki harness the immense amount of talent inside of her and defeat the two-time Women’s Champion?

It looks good early on for Yamazaki as she pushes Carmondy around the ring and uses her power to keep her grounded.  But the Shadow Warrior has had one tough battle already in the evening and it starts to show.

Super kick by Christa stuns Yamazaki who then walks right into a face crusher variation.  Diamond Dust by Carmondy lays Yamazaki out. Cover, but somehow Yamazaki slips out just before the three count. Spin kick by Christa to the face sends Yamazaki back down. Carmondy hooks the legs- two count on the pin.  Yamazaki counters an arm wringer with an elbow to the side of Carmondy’s head.  Arm drag to Carmondy.  Flying elbow off the top rope by ‘The Shadow Warrior.  Carmondy counters Yamazaki’s arm wringer with her own elbow to the side of the head.  Flying reverse elbow by Christa- Yamazaki ducks and Carmondy decks referee Ashland Carney instead.

That allows ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin and Poison Penny to jump into the ring. ‘The Shadow Warrior’ turns around and a mouthful of Poison Penny’s Poison Kiss.  Then Yamazaki gets floored by Tessa’s Oversized Pizza Box of Doom.  As the crowd boos, Tessa signals and drops Yamazaki with a Pizza Cutter! When Carney revives, both Tessa and Penny leave the ring.  Carmondy sets her up for the Mean Girl Crush and waits for Carney to stand up.  Once she does, Carmondy hits her finisher and immediately makes the pinfall : 1 – 2- 3.  Carmondy defeats Yamazaki and she will face the winner of Lisa Barbosa-Stevens and Sheline Carrigan later on tonight.

Christa Carmondy

STAGE TWO WINNER: Christa Carmondy @ 8:34

RAY McAVAY FINALLY PUTS HIS FOOT DOWN
Having seen enough, McAvay marches to the ring and grabs the microphone from ring announcer Kimber Marshall.

Ray McAvay: If the SEC even lifts a finger of interference in any match going forward tonight, their wrestler will be disqualified- no questions asked!

Shaking his head, McAvay hands the microphone back to Kimber and exits.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well, that much Ray McAvay can do.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, the damage has already been done.  Again, I go back to the battlefield preparation analogy.  The SEC eliminated a bunch of potential threats early on in the show before McAvay came out and dropped the hammer.  Now, we’ll see if Mr. McMann and the SEC have another trick up their sleeve.

Thunderbolt Smith: But they haven’t attacked Dawn or Victoria McGill.

Rick Hall: Well.  I don’t think the ‘hands off’ deal made between Dawn and McMann extends to her daughter.  It could be that the SEC just didn’t get to Tori before McAvay put a stop to the SEC’s plan.

MATCH #5-WOMEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH:
‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin © vs. Victoria McGill
Victoria McGill turned her back on the SEC to back her mother several weeks ago in a match against Dawn’s now ex-husband (and SEC’s Chief of Security) Jackson C.  Horne and opened the door for Tessa Martin to return to the SEC.  They have met in the ring since- both women own wins over the other.  They’ve interfered in each other’s matches as well.  This match could be a powderkeg just waiting to explode.

Tessa Martin
‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin

Which is how it starts out.  Both women come out fast and executive crisp moves against the other as they try to establish an advantage.  Tess is more technical with a little heel-ish aspects added in.  Tori is all brute strength and trying to set Tess up for her finisher- the Gutwrench Facebuster.

Tori McGill
Victoria McGill

The match intensity increases step by step as both women openly taunt each other.  Dawn McGill also has a few choice words for Tess as well as ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann and the rest of the SEC faction watching at ringside.  Tess also throws a few taunts in Dawn’s direction as well.

Both women have their moments as the match heads to the homestretch.

McGill takes a flying neckbreaker from Tessa.  Tess hooks the leg for a two count.  McGill blocks a punch and throws a forearm to Tessa’s face. Big clothesline to Martin. Cover for a two count.  Vicious kick to the face from Tori flattens Tessa. Cover- last second kick-out.  Another big clothesline by Tori followed by a waistlock. Martin reverses- flying reverse elbow sends Tori to the mat. Cover.  Two count on the pin.  Tornado DDT from the ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ plants McGill.  Pinfall : 1 – 2 – 2.9999999. Tess avoids a legsweep and McGill walks into a high dropkick. McGill powers out of a headlock.  Running knee lift followed by a Death Valley Driver sends Tess to the mat.  Cover. 1… 2… Kickout at 2.5.  Tori whips Tess into the SEC’s corner and charges in with a clothesline.  Martin grabs the referee and pulls her in the way.

Poison Penny and Christa Carmondy just happen to be on the ring apron.  Penny flails her arm in a natural reaction to Tori charging at Tess and accidently catches referee Brenda Qualls in the face by mistake.

Qualls calls for the immediate DQ as she collapses to the mat in pain.  In the confusion, Christa Carmondy jumps into the ring with a chair and hits McGill with a chairshot to the back.

WINNER: Victoria McGill via DQ @ 14:47- Tessa Martin remains the Women’s Heartland Champion

POST MATCH:
Dawn McGill immediately grabs a chair and jumps into the ring herself causing the SEC to retreat.

On the outside of the ring, Tessa is not pleased and neither is Mr. McMann.  Penny attempts to apologize.  Tessa accepts the apology but adds that it doesn’t stop the inevitable from happening to her.

What’s the inevitable you may ask?

*WHAM*

Wait a second?  Delaney Foster runs to the ring followed by Svetlana Kovaleski?  Delaney blasts Penny with the steel folding chair.  Penny drops like a shot.  Kovaleski loads Penny up on her back and drives her hard to the mat with the Gory Special.   The SEC beat down then commences until the MVW Security force runs out to mercifully put an end to the carnage.

Mr. McMann grabs a microphone.  He’s had enough of Poison Penny’s substandard work and unceremoniously announces her departure from the SEC.  McMann then introduces both Delaney Foster and Svetlana Kovaleski as her replacements.  Dawn McGill is stunned as Svetlana is another good friend (and former tag team partner) who’s turned to the dark side and joined the SEC.

McMann stops being coy and blatantly just comes out and asks ‘who do you think got us access to the People’s Front of Berea’s locker room?’ and points to Delaney.  The crowd unloads on the SEC in response.

Thunderbolt Smith: Okay.  Tori gets the win.  Tessa retains the title.  Delaney Foster… DELANEY ‘FREAKIN’ FOSTER? joins the SEC along with Svetlana Kovaleski.

Rick Hall: To paraphrase Harry Carey, holy cow.  You know, I can’t wait to hear the story about this one.  Of all the people to turn on their own faction and join the SEC, Delaney Foster was way, way, way, way down on the list.  McMann’s not even trying to hide now what the SEC has been doing all night long because he knows that barring a miracle the SEC is walking out of here with the Men’s tag team belts tonight.  And my guess is Delaney’s headed back to the ring to work with Kovaleski as the SEC’s women’s tag team.

Thunderbolt Smith: That’s the other shocker there.  Svetlana Kovaleski?  Dawn McGill’s former tag team partner?  In the SEC?

Rick Hall: This is going to get interesting so let’s discuss it again.  When Dawn McGill finished off her ex-husband Jackson C. Horne two and a half months ago, one of the provisions in the match contract was this: Jackson signs off on an annulment agreement with Dawn’s terms and Mr. McMann and Khris Kardoucheian never comes near her ever again and this ends this once and for all.  McMann has added Tessa Martin and now Kovaleski to the SEC.  But whenever Dawn McGill shows up the SEC backs away.  So I’m not sure what the game is McMann is playing- I only can believe that he is up to something.

MATCH #6-MEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH:
‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler vs. ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido
Earlier in the night, Butler took a beating from the SEC.  Now, he has to get into the ring with the wily veteran Chris Escondido.  How would he fare?

Escondido immediately set out to take advantage of the situation presented to him and tire Butler out using painful rest holds and keeping the Cowboy under the gun.

Dan Butler
‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler

Escondido hits a back kick and drops Butler to a knee.  He drives a thrust kick into the chest of Butler.  Cover. 1 … 2 … Butler gets the shoulder up.  Escondido continues to press the attack.  Flying kick on Butler leaves him vulnerable for an Escondido body slam but the Cowboy drops out the back and snap suplexes Escondido…with authority! Spear by Butler and a cover.  Two count on the pin.  Butler tries a right hand – Escondido blocks – back heel kick sends Butler back to the mat. Cover.  1 … 2 … again Butler just gets the shoulder up.  Escondido nails Butler with a flying knee to the face and hooks the leg for another cover.  1 …2 … NO!  Butler just kicks out.  Escondido attacks – Butler blocks and fires forearm to Escondido’s face.  Headlock – Escondido powers out and hits an arm drag on Butler and sends the Cowboy into the corner turnbuckle.  Butler down on the canvas.  Escondido swoops in and locks on the Figure Four Leglock!!!  ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler tries to power out but in the end he taps.

Chris

WINNER AND NEW MEN’S HEARTLAND CHAMPION: ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido @ 6:52

Thunderbolt Smith: Congratulations to ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido who grabs himself some gold at Wrestling Night in America.

Rick Hall: There’s an old saying ‘never look a gift horse in the mouth.’  Tonight, the SEC served up a battered ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler to Chris Escondido on a silver platter and Escondido did exactly what he was supposed to do, go out and win the match.  However, don’t think that Butler isn’t going to use this as fuel when he comes back to challenge for the belt again.  But I can’t blame Escondido for going out and winning the Men’s Heartland title.

Thunderbolt Smith: And no other chicanery during the match.

Rick Hall: No.  Butler did the best he could under the circumstances, but on this night Escondido took care of business to win the title.

Thunderbolt Smith: And now we get to the big four matches of the night.

MATCH #7-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH:
The O’Neders (Rita and Anita) © vs. The Missouri Valley Fight Club (Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott)
The fifth consecutive Women’s Tag Team Title match between The O’Neders and the Missouri Valley Fight Club going all the way back to March starts with both teams slowly feeling each other out.  The MVFC try to do what they do best, grind out an ugly victory.  The O’Neders play counterpunchers and manage to avoid getting themselves bogged down by the two-time Women’s tag team champions.

McDermott Davisson
Missouri Valley Fight Club
Carrieanne McDermott and Harley Davisson

Davisson slams Rita down. She pops right back up and walks into a spike slam.  Davisson makes the cover.  1….2….Anita makes the save at two. Davisson tags in Carrieanne McDermott.  Davisson and McDermott whip Rita into the ropes and hit a double backdrop.  Spin kick by McDermott to Rita’s face sends her to the mat.  Cover for a two count.  Rita walks into a high dropkick from McDermott. Cover.  1….2….Rita kicks out.  She blocks a kick from Carrieanne and snaps off a Tornado DDT.  McDermott got planted and Rita tags in Anita.  Legsweep sends McDermott down.  Cover. 1….2….Carrieanne gets her shoulder up.  Super kick by Anita staggers McDermott.  She grabs a headlock.  McDermott powers out. McDermott tags Davisson back in.  Davisson spears Anita and follows with a standing spinebuster.  Cover : 1 – 2 – 2.9999999.  Davisson rolling now.  Stiff chop lights up Anita but Davisson walks into a trip – spinning bulldog in the corner, Davisson is down.  Rita in.  They hit That Thing They Do! 1….2….3 and the O’Neders again retain the title.

RitaAnita

WINNER: The O’Neders- Rita and Anita @ 12:54

Davisson and McDermott both are left shaking their heads.  Finally, they go over to the champions and again shake their hands.

Afterwards, The O’Neders go into the crowd, where they celebrate their win.

Thunderbolt Smith: And that makes three wins in a row over the Missouri Valley Fight Club for the O’Neders.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Rita and Anita seem to have figured out the way to beat them.  Their counter-punching style has really given them fits in all five matches but this one was the most decisive.  In two weeks, the O’Neders will again defend their title- this time against MVW’s Masters of Mayhem the hockey-loving Hanson Sisters.  It will be interesting to see if their style works well against the wild and unpredictable Hansons.

MATCH #8 MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH:
The People’s Front of Berea…Kentucky (Dayle Joe Foster…Zeb Morris and Ezekiel Walker) © vs. The Sports Entertainment Corporation (Kirk Walstreit and P.M.C. Banks)
Earlier in the night, a masked man snuck into the PFB’s dressing room with the help of Delaney Foster and assaulted her brother Dayle Joe Foster.  Zeb Morris deputized himself to take his place in the match and the outlook seems bleak for the People’s Front of Berea to retain the belts.

The SEC start fast.  Walstreit and Banks’s manager ‘The King of Greed’ Gordon Guyko almost looks serene as he paces at ringside.  They can feel the title in their grasp.  The fans on hand boo and jeer them and try to rally the champions.

Walker cuts out the legs from under Walstreit thanks to a legsweep out of nowhere. Walker tries a headlock – Walstreit powers out and rakes the eyes.  Vertical suplex by Walstreit and he tags out to P.M.C. Banks. Spin kick by Banks to the face. Flying elbow from Banks.  He gets too close to Zeb Morris and he pushes Banks into a trip. Walker follows with a spinning neckbreaker and tags in to Morris. Morris slams P.M.C. Banks. Big clothesline on Banks. Banks reverses a Morris hammerlock and connects with a rolling kick.  Walstreit tags back in and delivers a flying knee to Morris’s face.  Cover.  1….2….last second kick-out.  But Morris is out of gas and can’t get back to his corner.  Walstreit arm drag takedowns Morris.  Walstreit sets.  Here it comes – Stock Market Plunge. 1….2…3, it’s finished.

Banks Walstreit Guyko
Back: P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit
Front: ‘King of Greed’ Gordon Guyko

WINNER AND NEW MEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: Sports Entertainment Corporation @ 5:47

POST MATCH:
The rest of the SEC flood the ring to celebrate amidst a hail of debris flying into the ring from the crowd who does not like what went down one bit.  Mr. McMann taunts the fans and has to dodge a few projectiles.  PFB turncoat and newly minted member of the SEC Delaney Foster (sister to Bailey and Dayle Joe) also joins in.

Bailey comes up from behind and shoves Delaney and the sisters get into a screaming match in the ring.  Kellyanne Morris finally has to pull Bailey away as the People’s Front of Berea leave ringside.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well?  No surprise.

Rick Hall: The SEC knew what they were doing when they took out Dayle Joe Foster.  Foster was the most dangerous of the two.  Once he was neutralized, Walstreit and Banks had a clean path to regaining the tag title.  So, Delaney Foster betrayed her family so we’ve got ourselves a bonafide family feud now brewing between the two sisters Delaney and Bailey Foster.  Plus, the SEC continues to make more enemies at an exponential rate.  You know damn well Dayle Joe Foster is going to want a little country-tinged retribution on the city slickers who attacked him and took their tag team title belts.

RAY McAVAY IN-RING ANNOUNCEMENT
Given the ridiculous amount of extracurricular activity that’s already taken place in the show, Ray McAvay comes out and basically tells the SEC if they even as much as set foot outside the backstage area during this match that Christa Carmondy can kiss her title shot against the winner of this match goodbye, period, end of discussion.

Thunderbolt Smith: So Ray comes out and lays down the law for the Women’s title match.

Rick Hall: Ray’s had a tough night.  But he did the right thing here.

MAIN EVENT #1-WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH:
Lisa Barbosa-Stevens © vs. ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan

Match of the night.

Barbosa-Stevens and Carrigan slapped hands at the start and off they went.

Coach E.J. Flack claps his hands and shouts encouragement to Carrigan.  The Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens) and Lisa’s manager Ted Tebow do the same for her.

Lisa Barbosa-Stevens
Lisa Barbosa-Stevens

Carrigan comes out fast and tries to use her strength to overpower Lisa.  Barbosa-Stevens uses every bit of guile and experience to slip out of numerous perilous situations in the first five minutes in the match.  Then the Women’s champion comes on and starts to assert herself.  She strings together a series of moves that gets the Canadian Cyborg off her feet and to the deck.

With Carrigan off balance and out of sync, Barbosa-Stevens steps up the tempo and tries to set her up for the Toxic Sting.  But Carrigan’s learned a few things too in their battles and surprises the champion by showing a little more resilience and more important- increased stamina.  Carrigan again imposes her will on the match and suplexes Barbosa-Stevens every which way in the ring.  Finally, Lisa scoots out and takes five to rethink things.  Once back in, the match hits the homestretch …

Sheline Carrigan
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan

Carrigan attacks immediately.  Bodyslam.  Carrigan ducks a wild right hand and hits a massive backbreaker that may have rearranged a few of Barbosa-Stevens’s vertebrae.   Cover.  1….2….NO!  Lisa gets the shoulder up.   Carrigan throws caution to the win.  Full nelson slam on Stevens.  She hooks the leg.  1….2….2.76 as Lisa again gets the shoulder up.  Vertical suplex by Carrigan. Another cover; another last second kick-out.  Again, Carrigan presses.  Bodyslam by Carrigan.  Headbutt.  Carrigan tries for the Canadian Destroyer – Lisa blocks so Carrigan cuts her down with a lariat.  Cover.  1….2….Lisa gets the shoulder up again just in time.  Barbosa-Stevens ducks a haymaker of a right hand and delivers a wicked chop to Carrigan that echoes through the building.  Desperation DDT by Lisa and the ring shakes violently at impact.  She hooks Carrigan’s leg and holds on for dear life.  1….2….Carrigan with a strong kickout.  But now it’s Barbosa-Stevens on the ascendancy.  Back heel kick off the second rope sends Carrigan back down. Cover by Lisa.  1….2….last second kick-out.  Another DDT by Barbosa-Stevens.  Cover.  1….2…..NO!  Carrigan kicks out.  Spin kick by Barbosa-Stevens to the face and for the first time, Carrigan looks tired and woozy.  Tiger suplex by the champion.  Carrigan staggers back to her feet.  Here it comes – Toxic Sting.  Cover. 1….2…3!

WINNER: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens @ 19:38

The crowd gives both women a standing ovation following the match.  After referee Corrina Romanov presents Lisa Barbosa-Stevens with her Women’s Title belt, the champion extends her hand to Carrigan…and it is accepted!  They shake!

Thunderbolt Smith: Well.  The best match I’ve seen between these two.  No funny business. No interference.  Just wrestling.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, the best woman won the match tonight.  But Carrigan isn’t that far behind her.  Great match.  Great moment after the match when both women showed respect to each other.  And the best thing about the match?  No sign of the SEC.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well, Ray McAvay did ground them to their room.

Rick Hall: True.  But if you’re Christa Carmondy and just watched this, what do you do?  How do you figure out a way to knock off Barbosa-Stevens right after she took Sheline Carrigan’s best punch and still managed to retain the title?  She’s got a lot of things to think about.  Now, let’s see if Dickinson v. Blackwell can follow this one.

MAIN EVENT #2-MEN’S TITLE MATCH:
‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson © vs. ‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell
How would Dickinson and Blackwell try and top the last match?

Just a gimpy ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler at ringside to represent Dickinson’s faction The Southern Boys.  Dawn McGill is at ringside as Blackwell’s second.

Charlie Blackwell
‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell

Blackwell tries to play the counterpunch game but Dickinson’s in a particular nasty mood tonight.  Dickinson throws off the Disaster kick early on and Blackwell realizes the champion means business.  Blackwell tries to pick his spots and patiently wait for an opening.  But there’s no opening to be found and Dickinson forces him into playing a lot of defense.  A worried McGill frets in their corner as Dickinson simply overwhelms Blackwell for the majority of the match.

…’Redneck’ Bill Dickinson unloads some bombs and Blackwell is driven to the corner. Kick from Charlie Blackwell to the leg slows the Men’s champion briefly.  Dickinson reverses an Irish whip and sends Charlie Blackwell hard into the opposite corner.  Body slam where Dickinson lifts Blackwell up – hesitates – and then powers him to the mat expels most of Blackwell’s air supply.   Cover, but there’s no one to count for Dickinson because McGill has referee Davey Keels’s attention. Charlie Blackwell misses a big legdrop- his last ditch try to change the course of the match and gets whipped to the ropes again -backdrop by Dickinson.  Backbreaker.  Cover.  This time, Keels is there to count.  1….2….Blackwell kicks out just in the nick of time.  Dickinson catches Blackwell running at him and blows him up big time with a Mountain Bomb.  Cover. 1….2….NO!  Blackwell kicks out at 2.9999.  Dickinson pulls Blackwell to his feet and launches him into the corner- he follows and avalanches Charlie. See that Blackwell is ready to go, Dickinson moves in for the kill.  Grab- lift- Southern Fried Powerbomb. Cover.  1….2…3.  Dickinson retains.

Bill Dickinson

WINNER: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson @ 8:40

POST MATCH
Dickinson celebrates with ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler.  McGill consoles Charlie Blackwell.  And suddenly the Masked Man appears and hits the ring again.  He blasts Butler over the head with a lead pipe shot and the Cowboy is down and definitely out.

The Masked Man then turns to Dickinson.  Does he attack him with the lead pipe?

No.  He shakes his hand and pulls off his mask.

DarinZion_full

IT’S ‘THE MESSIAH OF MISSOURI VALLEY’ BIG MONEY DARIN MATTHEWS!

High Octane Wrestling’s ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews shocks the MVW faithful with his return.  Dickinson infuriates the MVW faithful when he starts kicking the crap out of the unconscious ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler.  Matthews joins in.

Once again, debris thrown into the ring by disgusted crowd.

‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann and the rest of the SEC join Dickinson and Matthews in the ring while McGill leads Blackwell to the back.  McMann hands Big Money a big money paycheck for making a special appearance at the show.  He then hands a check to Bill Dickinson as well.

The SEC now holds the Men’s, the Men’s Tag Team title, and the Women’s Heartland belt and they are riding high even while the ring is being pelted with every conceivable projectile possible as the show comes to an end.

Thunderbolt Smith: Wow.  Didn’t see that coming.

Rick Hall: I did.  Dickinson had been distancing himself from the Southern Boys in the past few weeks.  He blew off a Kellie Burkowski interview at one point because ‘he couldn’t talk to her.’  And then he was nowhere to be found when the SEC annihilated the Southern Boys earlier in the show.  And McMann bringing back Big Money Darin Matthews to close out his arc with Missouri Valley Wrestling and handing the keys to the SEC to Dickinson after all the stuff they went through a few months back.  I’ll give him credit for pulling that off.

Thunderbolt Smith: Getting back to the match, Dickinson was just on a different level tonight.

Rick Hall: He was on a completely different level, no doubt.  But.  I think Charlie Blackwell is getting closer to the form he had when he dominated the Men’s division for sixteen months.  You can see signs that Charlie’s just about to break through and be the guy he was last year.  Dawn McGill has him refocused and I think Charlie’s going to be a player in this division real soon.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right.  Any last thoughts.

Rick Hall: Great show.  Can’t wait to go to Osage Beach next week.

Thunderbolt Smith: Next week, as Rick just alluded to, we will be in Osage Beach, MO for Wrestling Night in the Heartland- Fourth of July style.  Then in two weeks, we will be in Valparaiso, Indiana with the Women’s Tag Team title match between the O’Neders and the Hanson Sisters.  For Rick Hall, I’m Thunderbolt Smith.  We’ll see you next week.

Then former two-time Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion Lisa Barbosa-Stevens makes her entrance onto the stage.

I know, should stop believing
I know, there’s no retrieving
It’s over now, what have you done?

She joins the Stevens Dynasty and Tebow and waits.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE NOW!

The song slashes into the chorus – Lisa’s cue to head down to the ring.

The challenger rolls into the ring as the music changes.

Start in the morning
Go all night
Waited all week
It’s time to come alive
Biggest stage
Brightest lights
Down in Tuscaloosa
Yeah, it’s Roll Tide

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Rick Hall: And the St. Louis fans giving the SEC their own special welcome.

‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann appears first on stage to the SEC Theme Song- ‘Party Wherever We Go’ by Robert Randolph and the Family Band.  McMann, looking dapper and sharp in black suit with red tie and dark sunglasses, absorbs the negative reaction from the MVW fans as only he can.

*Shrug*

McMann is followed by the cameras of the Corporate Sports(Entertainment) Program Nation or aka…CSPN.  They too are greeted with boos.

Mr. McMann: The Sports Entertainment Corporation are a wrestling group who competes in Missouri Valley Wrestling. Our mission statement is simple: The SEC will facilitate the complete and total takeover of MVW by any and all means available.

McMann raises his arm and signals the rest of the SEC to come out:

Rick Hall: That always unnerves me for some reason.

Don’t be late to get in line
To party wherever we go!

Finally, we see the Women’s Heartland Champion come out. Svetlana Kovaleski proudly shows off the MVW Heartland title.

Then Mr. McMann leads the large group towards the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right, we’ve got a really good crowd here tonight.  They are revved up and read for some action.  Let’s go to the ring.

Cut to ring announcer Kimber Marshall.

She’s dressed elegantly tonight in a sparkling red dress.

Kimber Marshall: Good evening everyone and welcome to Missouri Valley Wrestling’s ST. LOUIS SUPERSHOW!

Pause for applause.

Kimber Marshall: Our first match of the night will be…

Pause.  ONE fall!

Kimber Marshall: And it will be for the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Heartland title!  Introducing first…The challenger from Houston, Texas.  Representing the Stevens Dynasty LISA!  BARBOSA!  STEEEE-VENS!

Lisa gets a very robust round of cheers from the St. Louis fans.

Kimber Marshall: And her opponent.  She is the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S HEARTLAND CHAMPION!

Svetlana gets an equally robust round of boos.

Kimber Marshall: Representing the Sports Entertainment Corporation from St. Petersburg, Russia- SVETLANA!  KOVALESKI!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Kovaleski poses for the crowd anyways and then wipes the sweat from her brow and flings it to the floor.

Thunderbolt Smith: It’s been a while since we’ve seen Lisa in a big match.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, last month at Evening of Champions, Lisa Barbosa-Stevens avenged the broken leg given to her by the SEC that cost her the Women’s title by taking out Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin after the Women’s Tag Team match.

(REPLAY: Evening of Champions following the Missouri Valley Fight Club © vs. The O’Neders Women’s Tag Team title match)

…Carmondy and Tess start shouting at Davisson and McDermott.  Davisson and McDermott rolls their eyes and ignore them.

That pisses off Carmondy and Tess and they start taking steps forward towards the ring.  Bailey Foster and Kellyanne Morris (People’s Front of Berea) try to stop them.  It doesn’t work.  Foster and Morris gets shoved down and Carmondy and Tess advance on the ring.

Suddenly from the back, Lisa Barbosa-Stevens rushes out with a steel chair and the crowd pops.

*BOOM* Down goes Carmondy.  Tess whirls around and . . .

*BOOM* Tess crumples to the floor.

Lisa stands over the downed women with the steel chair still in hand.

Rick Hall: Tonight, she faces the three person in the triumvirate who broke her leg, Women’s Heartland Champion Svetlana Kovaleski.  We’ll see how close Lisa Barbosa-Stevens is to being back at full strength tonight.  Kovaleski is strong as they come but Barbosa-Stevens is in a different plane when it comes to in-ring talent.

Thunderbolt Smith: Brenda Qualls will be the woman in charge inside the ring and she may have her hands full with the Stevens Dynasty and the full complement of the SEC all at ringside for this match.

Indeed, already there’s some chirping going on back and forth between the SEC and the Stevens.

*****************************************

MATCH ONE-MVW WOMEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE

Major Svetlana Kovaleski (The SEC) ©
vs.
Lisa Barbosa-Stevens (The Stevens Dynasty)

Referee: Brenda Qualls

*****************************************

Both women start cautious.

They slowly circle around the ring, each waiting for their opportunity.

Lock up.  Kovaleski uses her strength advantage to push Barbosa-Stevens into the corner- Lisa hooks the top rope with her arm and Brenda Qualls calls for a break.

Rick Hall: That’s where Svetlana has the biggest advantage on Barbosa-Stevens.  Her strength.

Again, both women circle and then Kovaleski and Barbosa-Stevens suddenly rush forward.  Kovaleski ducks a clothesline attempt – stops – spins – connects with a counter clothesline.   Stevens back up – she gets slammed down hard and winces in pain.  Kovaleski runs the ropes – she misses a clothesline…and takes out the referee accidentally!

Thunderbolt Smith: And THAT didn’t take long.

Rick Hall: Brenda Qualls just got blown up by the Women’s Heartland champion.  I’m sure it wasn’t intentional. . .sarcasm intended.

Thunderbolt Smith: Oh no.  Not at all.

Kovaleski again runs the ropes. Barbosa-Stevens is able to duck a clothesline attempt.  SHE stops – spins – and cuts down Kovaleski with HER counter clothesline.

Rick Hall: Turnabout is fair play, Thunderbolt.

Barbosa-Stevens drops a leg to the BACK OF THE HEAD! Stevens crushes Kovaleski with a running senton. Cover…

ONE…

TWO…

NO!

Thunderbolt Smith: The Champion beats the three count.

Rick Hall: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens just served early notice on Svetlana.  This is not the title Lisa ultimately wants but given the alternative she will do everything in her power to win this match and the title.

Kovaleski walks into a face crusher variation. Another pin by Barbosa-Stevens.

ONE…

TWO…Kovaleski is out just before the three count.

Thunderbolt Smith: I agree.  Barbosa-Stevens looks fresh and very sharp tonight.

But then Barbosa-Stevens misses a big legdrop after stalling too long.  Sidewalk slam to Barbosa-Stevens.  Kovaleski lifts her up…

…and slams her to the mat.  The champion hooks the leg!

ONE…

TWO…

NO!

Kovaleski presses Barbosa-Stevens.  She goes for a splash but Stevens puts the knees up.

Rick Hall: Kovaleski totally telegraphed that move.

Thunderbolt Smith: You can’t do that with Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.

Rick Hall: No way.

Lisa Barbosa-Stevens charges, Kovaleski moves, and whips Lisa into the corner turnbuckle.  Kovaleski with a spinning neckbreaker on Stevens.  Another sidewalk slam to Barbosa-Stevens.  She hooks the leg.

ONE…

TWO…Barbosa-Stevens kicks out.

Kovaleski kneels and puts her knee in the small of Barbosa-Stevens back.  Then she pulls back on both of her arms.

But Barbosa-Stevens stretches her leg out as far as she can – her foot touches the rope.  Referee Brenda Qualls calls for a break.

The ladies lock up in the middle of the ring.  After jockeying for position, Barbosa-Stevens fights out of a grapple.  She hits a wicked chop that echoes through the building.  And a second one – dropkick to Kovaleski.  Barbosa-Stevens makes the cover.

ONE…

TWO…

NO!  Kovaleski powers out.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, I think Svetlana’s done real well up to this point.  But I think this is where Barbosa-Stevens starts to take control of the match.

As if on cue, Barbosa-Stevens hits a snap suplex and again hooks the leg.

ONE…

TWO…again, Kovaleski kicks out.

Flying elbow from Lisa decks the Women’s Heartland champion.  Cover.

ONE…

TWO…

TH-NO!  Kovaleski just gets a shoulder up.

Kovaleski shoves Barbosa-Stevens off her and pops up – right hand out of nowhere staggers Barbosa-Stevens.

Thunderbolt Smith: Where did that come from?

Rick Hall: No clue.  Svetlana is fighting hard to hold on to her belt and pulling out all the stops.

Kovaleski with a ring shaking spike slam. Hooks the leg.

ONE…

TWO…

NO!  It’s Barbosa-Stevens’s turn to just beat the three count.

Massive lariat cuts Lisa down.  Pinfall.

ONE…

TWO…

2.9999999…NO!

Rick Hall: THAT was close!

Stiff chop lights up Barbosa-Stevens. Kovaleski spins her around- fallaway slam.  Barbosa-Stevens ends up in the corner.  Kovaleski sprints across the ring – NO!  Barbosa-Stevens counters with a raised foot to the face.

Rick Hall: Svetlana telegraphed that one too.

Spin kick by Barbosa-Stevens to the face staggers Kovaleski.

Rick Hall: That may have been the game changer.

Barbosa-Stevens up on the turnbuckle- Diamond Dust cutter from Barbosa-Stevens, Kovaleski is face down on the mat and out.  Barbosa-Stevens for the win.

ONE…

TWO…

THR-NO!  THE REFEREE WAS PULLED OUT OF THE RING!

Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin pull the referee out.  Kovaleski gets to all fours – she’s pulled something out of her top.  Barbosa-Stevens walks over…

*SMACK*

Thunderbolt Smith: BRASS KNUCKLES!  SHE JUST USED BRASS KNUCKLES!

Barbosa-Stevens down on the canvas.

Rick Hall: HERE COMES THE STEVENS DYNASTY!

Kovaleski, Tessa, and Carmondy make a quick exit from the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: I think it’s safe to say this match is over.

Kimber Marshall confers with the referee and then rolls into the ring with the decision.

WINNER VIA DQ: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens- Svetlana Kovaleski retains the Women’s Heartland Title

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thunderbolt Smith: The fans don’t like that.

Rick Hall: The SEC wanted pay back after Barbosa-Stevens embarrassed them at Evening of Champions and they got it.

Bo and George Stevens help Lisa back to her feet.

Thunderbolt Smith: I can assure, we haven’t heard the last of this one.

BACKSTAGE
MVW’s backstage announcer Kellie Burkowski has the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Tag Team Champions with her.

Kellie Burkowski: All right, I’ve got Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott here- the Missouri Valley Fight Club.  They will be defending their women’s tag team belts tonight against the Sports Entertainment Corporation’s Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin.

Davisson and McDermott both nod.  Davisson is dressed in biker garb.  McDermott has a blue outfit with the Scottish flag prominently shown on the front of her wrestling gear.

Kellie Burkowski: Ladies, talk about your match tonight.

Harley Davisson: A new year, Kellie… a new challenge.  Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin- MVW originals from the very start of the company- have joined forces with the dark side of pro wrestling to take us on.  They will be a challenge.  Both women are very capable in the ring.  But-

Davisson points to McDermott.

Harley Davisson: …so are we.

Kellie Burkowski: You mentioned Christa and Tess are MVW originals.  Does that give you any concern knowing that these two have been through the wars in MVW?

Davisson chuckles.  McDermott shrugs.

Carrieanne McDermott: No.

Harley Davisson: Kellie, Carrieanne and I have been through this before too.  We’ve fought dragons of all kinds.  We’ve defeated the team many consider to be the best tag team in MVW- Angels of Death.  And here we are, after nearly two years- still the reigning MVW Women’s Tag Team champions.

Kellie Burkowski: Any message you’d like to send to your opponents tonight?

Harley Davisson: Christa and Tess.  You’ve done a lot of talking in the past few weeks.  Tonight, the talk stops and it’s on.

Kellie Burkowski: And Carrieanne, you feel the same way?

McDermott nods her head.

Carrieanne McDermott: Aye.

Kellie Burkowski: Thanks ladies.

The Women’s Tag Team exits and-

Male Voice: YEEEEE-HAWWWWWWWWWWWW!

…in walks Zeb Morris and the People’s Front of Berea: Dayle Joe Foster, Ezekiel Walker, Bailey Foster, Kellyanne Morris, and Delaney Foster.

Kellie Burkowski: And please welcome in the challengers in tonight’s Men’s Tag Team title match- The People’s Front of Berea.

Zeb Morris: Kellie Burkowski.  It’s good to be back here in 2021.  My boys- Dayle Joe and Zeke are fixin’ to bring that MVW Men’s Tag Team title belt back to Berea, Kentucky and tonight iz th’ night.

Kellie Burkowski: Zeb, the PFB defeated the Southern Boys last year to win the belts.  Can they do it again tonight?

Zeb Morris: Well Kell, here’s the thing.  Yeah, the People’s Front of Berea won those belts but we’ve always felt it was tainted ‘cause the SEC stuck their noses in and gave us a …unwelcome assist, y’know.

Kellie Burkowski: Yes.  Your group got caught up in the backwash of the long running Southern Boys-SEC feud.

Zeb Morris: Right.  We really ain’t got nothin’ against the Southern Boys.  They’re our kind of people.  But the SEC?

Both Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker flash a thumb’s down.

Zeb Morris: They ain’t our kind.  But tonight.  The job is wrasslin’ the Southern Boys and we’re gonna do our best to win those belts back- the right way.

Zeb nods at Kellie and then the People’s Front of Berea make their exit.

Kellie Burkowski: That’s all from back here.  Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt Smith: Thanks Kellie.

Tequila Sheila comes out in a gold top with black horizontal stripes, a black mini-skirt, and a red rose in her hair to sashay across the stage to the song ”Tequila Sheila”- Bobby Bare.

“Pour me another- Tequila . . .

Crowd: SHEILA!

Thunderbolt Smith: And the appearance of Tequila Sheila tells us it’s time to go to the ring for our second match of the night.

Tequila Sheila twirls as the music changes.

*”Ordinary Average Guy” – Joe Walsh*

I’m just an ordinary average guy
My friends are all boring
And so am I
We’re just ordinary average guys

Average Joe comes out next in his distinctive bright yellow t-shirt with red ‘Average Joe’ lettering.

We all live ordinary average lives
With average kids – And average wives
We all go bowling at the bowling lanes
Drink a few beers – Bowl a few frames
We’re just ordinary average guys

The other two members of Truckin’ Average Company: Ken Worth-American Trucker and everyday worker Brad Company, come out as well.

Tequila Sheila leads them down to the ring.

*’Country Boy Can Survive’- Hank Williams Jr.*

Thunderbolt Smith: And here comes three-time Men’s Heartland Champion ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler.

Butler walks out with Texas Cowgirl (and MVW Original) Haley Dallas.  Cowboy hat.  Wrestling tights with the Texas flag on the right thigh. Black vest.

The preacher man says it’s the end of time
And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
And you only get mugged
If you go downtown

Butler raises his arms in the air.  He’s joined by his fellow Southern Boys ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams and starts his way down to the ring.

I live back in the woods, you see
A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

He rolls into the ring and starts warming up.

Because you can’t starve us out
And you can’t makes us run
Cuz we’re them old boys raised on shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma’am
And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

Thunderbolt Smith: All right.  Kimber Marshall is in the ring and let’s go to her now.

Cut to Kimber in the ring.

Kimber Marshall: Ladies and gentlemen!  Our next match will be one fall and it will be for the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE!

She pauses for applause.

Kimber Marshall: Introducing first, the challenger.  From Defiance, Ohio.  Representing Truckin’ Average Company- AVERAGE JOE!

Average Joe raises his arms to acknowledge the crowd.

Kimber Marshall: And his opponent represents the Southern Boys and is accompanied to the ring by MVW Original ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas.   Hailing from Beaumont, Texas.  He IS the reigning Missouri Valley Wrestling Men’s Heartland Champion!  COWBOY!  DAN!  BUTLER!

Butler also raises his arms.

Thunderbolt Smith: Davey Keels will be the referee for this match.  I think we are just about ready to go.

BACKSTAGE
In front of the SEC dressing backstage, there’s a fancy podium set up on a platform.  Standing at the base of the platform are Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Programming Nation reporters Reese Anderson and Rebecca Morris.

CSPN PERSONALITIES
Reese Anderson-
always dressed in an expensive suit and tie and coifs some impressive television hair (think Dan Patrick in his prime)
Rebecca Morris-
blonde with her hair in a bun and wears a business suit with heels.

The door opens and ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann, ‘SEC Mouthpiece’ Phil Finebaum, and SEC Security Chief Jackson C. Horne come out.

Next, Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin.  Then MVW Champion Charlie Blackwell.

McMann goes to the microphone.

Mr. McMann: A quick statement and then I’ll take your questions.

He clears his throat.

Mr. McMann: St. Louis Supershow.  Tonight, we have already successfully defended the SEC’s Women’s Heartland title belt.  Now, we go forth into battle again to bring home the Women’s Tag Team title belts.  No doubt that the Missouri Fight Club…

Finebaum whispers something in McMann’s ear.

Mr. McMann: Oh.  My bad.  The Missouri VALLEY Fight Club.  No doubt that they are a good tag team.  But, they aren’t ELITE.  The SEC.  That’s where you find the elite. The SEC is the ultimate destination for anyone who wants to be associated with the best of the best.  And then later on tonight, our own Charlie Blackwell- Missouri Valley Wrestling MEN’s Champion, Charlie Blackwell, will successfully defend our title against a man who lucked twice into winning the belt- some guy named J.J. Bittinger.  I find it interesting that the SEC has TWICE taken the Men’s Title belt off Bittinger in the space of a year.  Why?  Because J.J. Bittinger is not an ELITE wrestler.  J.J. had the chance to join the SEC and become an elite wrestler but he chose not to join.  Tonight, Charlie Blackwell will drive home just how bad of a decision J.J. made in not signing up for the premier wrestling alliance in MVW- the best of the best- the SEC.

McMann points to Rebecca Morris.

Mr. McMann: Questions.

Rebecca Morris: Yes, Mr. McMann.  Thank you so much for the truly inspiring words this afternoon.  My question gets to what happened last month at Evening of Champions and the unfortunate loss of the Men’s Tag Team title.  Isn’t it a fact that MVW Owner Ray McAvay’s unfair ruling keeping the SEC from ringside played heavily into the loss?

Mr. McMann: Of course it did.  Look, the SEC is a strong group of people.  We are a presence.  We are a legion of the best athletes that Missouri Valley Wrestling can offer.  McAvay’s unwarranted decision to keep us from ringside clearly gave the Southern Boys an unfair advantage.  I can tell you with certainty that when the SEC gets their rightly earned rematch with the Southern Boys, the outcome will be much, much different.

He points to Reese Anderson.

Reese Anderson: Thank you Mr. McMann.  I echo Rebecca’s sentiments about your inspirational remarks today.  Your thoughts about the women’s title match from Evening of Champions and Eric Dane interference in the match.

Mr. McMann: Thank you Reese.  I always appreciate the fair and impartial coverage of the SEC we get from CSPN.  Yes, let’s look at what happened.

(REPLAY: Evening of Champions: Graysie Parker © vs. ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan for the MVW Women’s Title)

Parker launches herself forward and whips Carrigan into the corner.  Now Parker charges in – Mr. McMann to the ring apron – HE SHOVES THE REFEREE INTO PARKER’S PATH!  *COLLISION*  Romanov gets squashed- she’s out cold.  She cushions the blow to Carrigan but the Canadian Cyborg slides down to a seated position.

Eric Dane snaps and he immediately shoots through the ropes towards McMann and crosses through the ring.  McMann sees him and jumps down.  McMann takes off around the ring with Dane in hot pursuit.  McMann rolls back into the ring and runs right into Parker.  Scoop slam by Parker.  Parker lifts him up- GRAYSIE DRIVER TO McMANN!

Mr. McMann: It’s not MY fault that the referee tripped over her own two feet and stumbled into Graysie Parker’s path.  Eric Dane had no business jumping into the ring and coming after me.  Completely unacceptable.  If Dane stays where he’s supposed to, there’s no chance in hell I end up getting spiked with a Graysie Driver from his wrestler.  Look, don’t get me wrong.  Graysie Parker is an impressive wrestler.  But she doesn’t have the right ‘look’- she’s overweight and I can’t image MVW is making money with her at the top of the women’s division.  The ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan on the other hand- not only does she has the ‘look’ to be a champion, she has the talent and the x-factor eliteness to be a dominant MVW Women’s champion and she will do that with the SEC right behind her every step of the way.  Mark my words, she will be the women’s champion sooner than later.  Thank you.

BACKSTAGE
Kellie Burkowski has the Missouri Valley Wrestling Men’s Tag Team Champions with her.

‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller: KELLIE!

Miller gives Burkowski a big hug.

‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler, ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas, and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson also join the group hug.

Kellie Burkowski: Okay … okay. Now, we just heard ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann had to say about your win last month at Evening of Champions.

‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas: Yes we’all did Kellie.  And you know, we’all have been around the block enough in this industry to identify bull*BLEEEP* and everything that came out of McMann’s mouth is nothing more than bull*BLEEP*.   McMann knows in a fair fight the Southern Boys will be the ones with their arms raised high at the end of the match more often than not.  He can deflect and muddy up the waters all he wants- the bottom line is the Southern Boys hold the gold and we ain’t inclined to give it up anytime soon.

Miller, Williams, Butler, and Dickinson nod in agreement.

Kellie Burkowski: Okay.  Let’s talk about your opponents tonight- The People’s Front of Berea.  They aren’t fans of the SEC either even though the SEC did help them win the tag title.

‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas: Well, as Zeb Martin mentioned earlier in the night, the People’s Front of Berea hate the SEC almost as much as we do.  The Southern Boys have no issue with the PFB except for the fact that they are going to try and take away our tag team belts.  After the match, I know we’ll unite against our common enemy- the SEC.  But tonight, the Southern Boys will take care of their business as only the Southern Boys can.  Right guys?

Dallas looks back at the four behind her.  They again nod in agreement.

Kellie Burkowski: All right then.  Good luck.  Thunderbolt, back to you.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: All right.  Thanks again Kellie.

Start in the morning
Go all night
Waited all week
It’s time to come alive
Biggest stage

Down in Tuscaloosa
Yeah, it’s Roll Tide

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thunderbolt Smith: That can only mean that the challengers for this upcoming women’s tag team match are coming out.

Rick Hall: And once again, St. Louis fans gives the SEC their own special welcome.

‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann appears first on stage to the SEC Theme Song- ‘Party Wherever We Go’ by Robert Randolph and the Family Band.  McMann, looking dapper and sharp in black suit with red tie and dark sunglasses, and one more time absorbs the negative reaction from the MVW fans as only he – the undisputed Sports Entertainment Genius – can.

*Shrug*

McMann is followed by the cameras of the Corporate Sports(Entertainment) Program Nation or aka…CSPN.  They too are greeted with boos.

Mr. McMann: The Sports Entertainment Corporation are a wrestling group who competes in Missouri Valley Wrestling. Our mission statement is simple: The SEC will facilitate the complete and total takeover of MVW by any and all means available.

McMann raises his arm and signals the rest of the SEC to come out:

Walstreit walks around holding up a velvet painting of ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit.

Rick Hall: That always unnerves me for some reason.

Thunderbolt Smith: Me too.

Any place, any time
Don’t be late to get in line
To party wherever we go!

Finally, we see the Women’s Heartland Champion come out. Svetlana Kovaleski proudly shows off the MVW Heartland title.

Then Mr. McMann leads the large group towards the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: I think Christa and Tess will be very formidable opponents for the MVFC.

Rick Hall: I agree Thunderbolt.  There’s a lot of experience there.  There’s going to be a lot of experience in the ring between both sides.  I am looking forward to this.

*“Cut Me Some Slack”- Paul McCartney and Nirvana*

Thunderbolt Smith: And that’s the cue for Harley Davisson to ride out to the stage on her Harley Davidson motorcycle.

And she does.

Did your mama, set me free
Oh mama, let me be
Oh mama, watch me run
Mama, I wanna have some fun

Davisson parks the bike and dismounts.

Hey mama, don’t let me down
Mama, I want to go to town

She poses on stage for the crowd.

If you wanna stick around you gotta cut me some slack
I’m gonna hit the road again and not come back

The heavy metal music transitions into traditional bagpipe music.

“Scotland the Brave”- Traditional

Carrieanne McDermott walks out with a group of bagpipers a la Roddy Piper and joins Davisson on stage.

McDermott and Davisson fist bump and then walk towards the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: Corrina Romanov, another MVW original, will be the referee and we just about ready to go.

*****************************************

MATCH ONE-MVW WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE

The Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott ©
vs.
The Sports Entertainment Corporation: Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin

Referee: Corrina Romanov

*****************************************

Davisson and Tess to start.

Thunderbolt Smith: Even though the Missouri Valley Fight Club have dominated the women’s tag team division for almost two years now, I believe a Christa Carmondy and Tessa Martin partnership could make a serious run at the tag belts.

Both women come out tentatively.  Lock up.

Rick Hall: I agree Thunderbolt.  But Christa and Tessa both had so much success as singles wrestlers, can they put all that aside and make a commitment to the tag team.  If they can, I would not be surprised if they won the title.

Harley takes a swing – Tess ducks.  Tess tries to sweep Harley’s leg – Davisson jumps over the leg.  Davisson with a right hand – spinning neckbreaker sends Martin to the mat.  Tess bounces right up – standing dropkick by Tess gets Davisson’s attention.

Davisson pops right up and she spears the hell out of Tess.  She hooks the leg right away.

ONE…

TW- Tess kicks out.

Davisson drags Tess back to her corner and tags out to Carrieanne McDermott.  Davisson and McDermott whip Martin into the ropes and hit a double clothesline.  McDermott hits a rolling kick on Martin. Cover.

ONE…

TWO… Tess kicks out again.

McDermott rears back and just WAFFLES Martin with a STIFF chop.

Rick Hall: Wow.  That hurt ME to watch!

Takedown by McDermott and another cover.

ONE…

TW- Christa Carmondy in to make the save!

Christa sneaks in a cheap shot before Harley Davisson chases her from the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: Quick start for the Missouri Valley Fight Club.

Rick Hall: Christa Carmondy made the save even though I think Tess would have kicked out.

Thunderbolt Smith: Throwing down a marker?

Rick Hall: I think the SEC is serious about winning this match.

Waistlock by McDermott – Martin reverses.  Belly to back suplex – power drive elbow by Tessa. Roll up.

ONE…

TW- McDermott squirms out.

Martin tags out to Christa Carmondy.  Christa greets McDermott with a flying neckbreaker.  Lightning kick staggers McDermott.  McDermott comes up with a right hand and tags out to Harley Davisson. Nice right hand to Carmondy.  Another right hand from Davisson.  Snap suplex from Davisson spikes Carmondy down! Pinfall attempt.

ONE…

TWO…NO!

Thunderbolt Smith: Carmondy proves resilient after taking some heavy shots.

Rick Hall: This is what makes the Missouri Valley Fight Club such a good team.  Davisson will grind you down with her brawling tactics, McDermott uses her technical ability to do the same.

Headbutt by Davisson and Carmondy seems a little unsteady on her feet.  Another right hand sends Carmondy down.  Davisson methodically walks over and pulls her back up.  Lock up – Carmondy fights out and whips Davisson to the ropes – drop toehold takes Harley down.  Davisson back up.  Short arm clothesline decks Davisson again.

Spinning bulldog in the corner and Davisson is down again.  Carmondy sets her up for the Mean Girl Crush.

Thunderbolt Smith: This could be it!  Could we have new champions?

Davisson slips out the back door and dives to the corner to tag McDermott back in.  DDT by McDermott. Cover.

ONE…

TWO…Carmondy kicks out.

McDermott crushes Carmondy with a big legdrop. Hooks the leg.

ONE…

TWO…

THR- NO!  Christa kicks out.

McDermott immediately hooks each of Christa’s legs underneath her armpits – reaches down and underneath Carmondy’s chin – leans back to pull up her head and neck.

Thunderbolt Smith: Leg-Trap Camel Clutch by McDermott!

Tessa Martin to the top turnbuckle.  She leaps and lands on McDermott to break the submission hold.  Carmondy tries to cover.  McDermott rolls out and tags in Harley Davisson.  Double team whip sends Carmondy to the ropes and hit a double backdrop.  Davisson nails Christa with a back elbow and Carmondy stumbles back.  Davisson hooks the leg.

ONE…

TWO…Carmondy gets a shoulder up.

Davisson pulls Christa up and lights her up with stiff chops.  Christa rakes the eyes and gets to her corner to tag in Tessa Martin.  Martin blocks a kick from Davisson.  Right hand by Tess.  Boot to the gut bends Davisson over.  Lift – Gutwrench facebuster!  Cover.

ONE…

TWO…Davisson powers out.

Rick Hall: The Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl saves the day for the SEC and then tags back out to Christa Carmondy.

Carmondy back in.  She ducks a Davisson right hand and nails her with a spin kick to the face.  Carmondy crushes Davisson with a running senton.  Cover.

ONE…

TWO- Davisson kicks out.

Carmondy goes for a hip toss – Davisson reverses and tags out to Carrieanne McDermott.  Double team move coming up.  Carmondy put on the top of the turnbuckle.  McDermott hits a super frankensteiner and Carmondy hits hard.  McDermott drops an elbow.  Cover.

ONE…

TWO…

THR- NO!

Thunderbolt Smith: Christa Carmondy just got that shoulder up in time.

Spinning back kick from McDermott and Carmondy is in big trouble.  Waistlock by McDermott – Carmondy reverses and pushes McDermott through the ropes to the floor.

Rick Hall: Carrieanne McDermott is in the wrong part of town.

Thunderbolt Smith: Mr. McMann and Sheline Carrigan to the apron and they are arguing with referee Corrina Romanov.

Carmondy to the floor.  She takes McDermott and shoves her face first into the steel ring post.

Carmondy back to the ring as McDermott falls to the floor.  McDermott gets back up and gets drilled by a superkick from Svetlana Kovaleski.

Thunderbolt Smith: Referee Corrina Romanov is distracted and the SEC takes full advantage.

Rick Hall: Kovaleski just snapped McDermott’s head back with that superkick.

While McMann and Carrigan continue to debate the finer points of wrestling etiquette with the referee, Kovaleski spins McDermott around – puts her on her back – and drops McDermott with the Gory Special!

Thunderbolt Smith: Here comes Harley Davisson.

Davisson makes a beeline across the ring.  Carrigan sticks her foot out and Davisson stumbles through the ropes and lands hard on the floor.

Rick Hall: OOOOOOOH!  Harley Davisson just took a big fall.

Davisson down.  Kovaleski leaves McDermott be, the damage done. Martin lifts McDermott up and rolls her back into the ring where Christa Carmondy waits.  Carmondy sets her up – lifts – MEAN GIRL CRUSH!  Carmondy makes the cover.  McMann and Carrigan end their discussion.

ONE…

TWO…

THREE…

Thunderbolt Smith: NEW CHAMPIONS!

*DING-DING-DING-DING*

Thunderbolt Smith: WE’VE GOT NEW CHAMPIONS!

Kimber Marshall climbs in to make it official.

WINNERS AND NEW MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Sports Entertainment Corporation

Romanov presents Carmondy and Martin with their tag team belts.  McMann leads the SEC into the ring and a big celebration ensues.

Rick Hall: The SEC have added the Women’s Tag Team title to the Women’s Heartland and the Men’s title and now control three of the six MVW titles.

Carmondy and Martin high five.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right. We are halfway done with the 2021 St. Louis Supershow.  Let’s take a quick review of what happened tonight.

WOMEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens defeated Svetlana Kovaleski (The SEC) © via DQ- Kovaleski retains the Women’s Heartland Title.

MEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE: ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler (Southern Boys) © defeated Average Joe (Truckin’ Average Company)

WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: The SEC (Christa Carmondy/’Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin) defeated Missouri Valley Fight Club (Harley Davisson/Carrieanne McDermott) © to become the new MVW Women’s Tag Team Champions.

Rick Hall: Big night for the SEC.  They successfully retained the Women’s Heartland title even though champion Svetlana Kovaleski got caught using a foreign object against Lisa Barbosa-Stevens – I don’t think we’ve heard the last of that one yet – and they picked up the Women’s Tag Team title – again with a little bit of chicanery – from the Missouri Valley Fight Club tonight and I don’t think we’ve heard the last of that one either.  Also, Dan Butler looked very impressive in his Men’s Heartland title defense against a tough opponent in Average Joe to retain his belt.  Next week is going to be interesting.  I think we saw tonight that the Southern Boys-SEC conflict isn’t going away anytime soon.  We’ll see if anything happens when the Southern Boys defend the Men’s Tag belts against The People’s Front of Berea.  You’ve got Graysie Parker – who’s been a one woman wrecking ball, dominating the women’s division for the past four months – taking on an opponent in Kirsten Canfield who gave her a little trouble in an earlier title match.  And finally, Charlie Blackwell defends his Men’s Title belt against a man who he’s battled with in the ring over this past year- J.J. Bittinger.  These two know each other real well and we’ll see if J.J. can win back the Men’s title for a third time.

Thunderbolt Smith: So the SEC add themselves a new title to their trophy case as Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin win the Women’s Tag Team title and hold on to the Women’s Heartland title.  The Southern Boys hold on to the Men’s Tag Team title. Tonight, we’ve got three more title matches for you and here they are.  Rick?

Rick Hall: New Men’s Tag Team champions The Southern Boys- ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams- take on Ezekiel Walker and Dayle Joe Foster of the People’s Front of Berea.

Video highlights of the Southern Boys and the People’s Front of Berea follow.

Rick Hall: In our first main event, Women’s champion Graysie Parker will step into the ring and defend her title against Kirsten Canfield.

Video highlights of Parker and Canfield follow.

Rick Hall: And finally, our second main event sees ‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell of the SEC defending his Men’s Title against the man he won the title back from former two-time champion J.J. Bittinger.

Video highlights of Blackwell and Bittinger follow.

Thunderbolt Smith: Kellie Burkowski is backstage.

BACKSTAGE
Burkowski takes her cue as in the background, we can see the SEC returning to their dressing room celebrating the title win.

Kellie Burkowski: Thanks Thunderbolt.  As you can see behind me, the SEC are very happy to bring another title into the fold.  Of course, we won’t be able to interview anyone from the SEC due to the exclusive media deal they made with CSPN.  But-

Commotion.

Kellie BurkowskI: Hold on guys.

The Southern Boys: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler arrive and Miller and Williams point to their Men’s Tag Team title belts they won from the SEC last month.

The SEC’s Kirk Walstreit and P.M.C. Banks confront Miller and Williams.

Kellie Burkowski: There’s some words being exchanged between the SEC and the Southern Boys.

MVW security appear and waste no time in intervening.  But heated words continue to fly back and forth between the two factions.

Kellie Burkowski: All right, while the situation behind us gets diffused, let’s bring in Eric Dane and the MVW Women’s Champion Graysie Parker.  Graysie will be defending her title tonight against Kirsten Canfield.

BACKSTAGE
Dane and Parker join Kellie.  Graysie points to her MVW Women’s Title belt.

Kellie Burkowski: Eric, on last week’s show ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann had this to say about the minor incident between you and him last month at Evening of Champions.

(REPLAY: Last Week’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland)

Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Programming Nation reporter Reese Anderson is interviewing Mr. McMann.

Reese Anderson: Thank you Mr. McMann.  I echo Rebecca’s sentiments about your inspirational remarks today.  Your thoughts about the women’s title match from Evening of Champions and Eric Dane interference in the match.

Mr. McMann: It’s not MY fault that the referee tripped over her own two feet and stumbled into Graysie Parker’s path.  Eric Dane had no business jumping into the ring and coming after me.  Completely unacceptable.  If Dane stays where he’s supposed to, there’s no chance in hell I end up getting spiked with a Graysie Driver from his wrestler.  Look, don’t get me wrong.  Graysie Parker is an impressive wrestler.  But she doesn’t have the right ‘look’- she’s overweight and I can’t image MVW is making money with her at the top of the women’s division.

Kellie Burkowski: Eric.  Your thoughts on what Mr. McMann had to say?

Eric Dane: I think that if McMann values his physical health, he’d better do his best to stay seen and not heard anytime he’s within suplexing distance to Graysie Parker.

Kellie Burkowski: All right.  Let’s get to tonight.  The last time Graysie Parker was in the ring with the challenger tonight, Kirsten Canfield, Kirsten actually gave her a tough time for a while until Graysie figured it out and closed out the match.  Your thoughts on tonight’s match?

Eric Dane: More of the same. Graysie is a machine! She’s getting better week in and week out, every time she sets foot inside of a ring! Now I’m not taking anything away from Kirsten, she’s a damn fine wrestler in her own right, but Graysie is on an upward path and I don’t think that Kirsten’s gonna figure out Graysie this time!

Kellie Burkowski: So, Graysie is focused on Kirsten one hundred percent?

Eric Dane: Absolutely. Graysie trusts me to do my job and take care of any outside shenanigans or anything else so that she can focus on her opponent and focus on successfully defending that MVW Women’s World Championship!

Kellie Burkowski: All right.  Thank you Eric and good luck to you Graysie later on tonight.  Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt Smith: Thanks Kellie.

Rick Hall: And again, just because it’s 2021 does not mean that the SEC-Southern Boys war is over.  Trust me, it’s far from over.

Thunderbolt Smith: The Southern Boys will need to focus on their opponents tonight…

*‘Rednecker’- Hardy*

Thunderbolt Smith: …and here they come.  Former tag team champions The People’s Front of Berea.

The crowd explodes as Hardy’s ‘Rednecker’ blares over the sound speaker.

So you think you’ve got some county line cred
‘Cause you rode a dirt road or two
You got a Mossy Oak hat on top of your head
And a Southern Pride tattoo.

Out walks Zeb Morris with Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker behind him.  Then Delaney and Bailey Foster and Kellyanne Morris follow.

My town’s smaller than your town
And i got a bigger buck and bass on my wall
Got a little more kick in my drawl
Y’all i got little more spit in my chaw
My truck’s louder than your truck
And my collar’s a little more blue
You might think that you’re redneck
But I’m rednecker than you
Yes I am

The PFB head towards the ring as the crowd sings along with the chorus. The music then changes…

*‘Everlong’- Foo Fighters*

Thunderbolt Smith: Now, it’s time for the Missouri Valley Wrestling Men’s Tag Team Champions!  The Southern Boys.

‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller comes out first accompanied by the ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas.   Miller comes out in standard wrestling gear.  Dallas sports a cowgirl hat and dresses in appropriate Texas cowgirl attire.

Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head she sang

Dallas points to Miller and poses on stage.

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

Miller raises up his MVW Men’s Tag Team title belt.

*“Screw You, We’re From Texas”- Ray Wylie Hubbard*

‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams comes out.  He too holds his tag team title belt high in the air.

I got on my cowboys boots, jeans and lawyer’s shirt
Mirrored sunglasses and mobile phone
I guess I look like some Port Aransas dope dealer’s
Out on bail just trying to get home.

Williams fist bumps Miller and then Haley Dallas.  Also coming out, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and Men’s Heartland Champion ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler.

Well, I aint in jail and I got me a guitar
And I got a little band that’s hotter than a rocket
Sometimes we’re sloppy, we’re always loud
Tonight were just all around locked in the pocket.

The four walk down to the ring.

So screw you, we’re from Texas
Screw you, we’re from Texas
Screw you, we’re from Texas
We’re from Texas baby, so screw you.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right, we’ve got both teams in the ring.  It’s time to go to our ring announcer, the lovely Kimber Marshall.

Cut to Kimber in the ring.

Kimber Marshall: Ladies and gentlemen, this next match will be…

ONE fall!

Kimber Marshall: …and it will be for the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE!

Pause for applause.

Kimber Marshall: Introducing the challengers hailing from the great city of Berea, Kentucky.  Dayle Joe Foster.  Ezekiel Walker.  They are THE PEOPLE’S FRONT OF BEREA!

Foster and Walker fist bump and raise their arms in the air.

Kimber Marshall: And their opponents tonight.  From Columbus, Georgia, ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and from Wimberley, Texas- ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams.  They are the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS- THE SOUTHERN BOYS!

The Southern Boys huddle up in their corner.

Thunderbolt Smith: Rick, your thoughts?

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, the People’s Front of Berea have improved a lot since they first came to Missouri Valley Wrestling.  But right now, the Southern Boys are THE Men’s Tag Team.  I think the PFB will acquit themselves well.  But Williams and Miller are just too good right now.

Thunderbolt Smith: Okay, referee Ron Martin is done with the pre-match check and this match is about to get underway.

MATCH ONE-MVW MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE

The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams ©
vs.
The People’s Front of Berea: Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker

Referee: Ron Martin

*****************************************

Dayle Joe Foster and Dan Williams to start.   Foster comes out fast and circles around.  Williams patiently waits.

Lock up.  Foster takes a headbutt from Williams.  Williams body slams Foster to the mat and hooks the leg.

ONE…

TW-Foster kicks out.

Rick Hall: Dan Williams doesn’t mess around.  He gets right to the point.

Williams tags out to Dave Miller and they whip Foster into the ropes – double back elbow staggers Foster.  Takedown by Miller.  Cover.

ONE…

TWO…Foster kicks out again.

One handed bulldog to Foster and Miller will not let up.

Rick Hall: The Southern Boys have just blitzed the PFB in the early going.

Miller goes for a splash – Foster gets his knees up.

Thunderbolt Smith: Alert move by Dayle Joe puts an end to that.

Now Foster in control.  Full nelson slam to Miller.  Hook the leg.

ONE…

TWO- Miller powers out.

Rick Hall: Dayle Joe Foster is another one who’s improved a bunch since coming to MVW.

Foster tags to Ezekiel Walker.  Walker in like a house of fire and hurrancaranas Miller into the corner turnbuckle.   Walker pulls him out to the middle and covers.

ONE…

TWO……2.9999999

Rick Hall: Dave Miller just kicked out.

Walker climbs to the middle rope – flying axe handle sends Miller down.  Walker with a side headlock.  He tries to get to his corner but Miller pushes out. Miller with a spinning neckbreaker on Walker – seated blockbuster – hook the legs.

ONE…

TWO…NO!  Walker shoots a shoulder up.  Miller tags back in Dan Williams and he bodyslams Walker.  Cover.

ONE…

TWO…Dayle Joe Foster makes the save.

Referee Ron Martin spirits Foster out of the ring.

Rick Hall: This is what I was thought was going to happen.  The Southern Boys have kicked it up a notch and they are head over heels a couple places above the People’s Front of Berea-

Thunderbolt Smith: Williams with a small package!

ONE…

TWO…

THR-NO!  Walker just kicks out.

He rakes Williams eyes and dives to his corner to tag in Dayle Joe Foster.  Foster runs in – belly to belly suplex.   Foster up – fallaway slam by Williams.  Back suplex again sends Foster down and he can barely stand.  Williams down – DEVIL’S TRIANGLE!

Thunderbolt Smith: FOSTER’S STUCK AND –

The crowd rises up.

Rick Hall: SEC!

Ron Martin immediately calls for the bell and disqualifies the People’s Front of Berea.

WINNER BY DISQUALIFICATION AND STILL MVW MEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Southern Boys (‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams)

The People’s Front of Berea then mount a counter attack.  Zeb Morris and Ezekiel Walker go after Walstreit and Banks.  Michaels and Gibson-Lane hit the ring with chairs and…

*WHAP*

*WHAP*

…that takes care of Morris and Walker.  Now the four SEC just tee off on the tag champions until MVW Security race down to the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: And 2021 kicks off the same way 2020 ended- the Southern Boys and SEC still hate each other and want to do bodily harm to the other.

Rick Hall: That pretty much sums it up.

The Sports Entertainment Corporation then leave, the damage done.

Thunderbolt Smith: While they clean this up, let’s go backstage to Kellie Burkowski where she has the the challenger in tonight’s Women’s title match with her.

Cut to backstage…

BACKSTAGE
Kellie Burkowski: 
Thank you Thunderbolt.  With me now is Kirsten Canfield who has the unenviable task of going up against Women’s Champion Graysie Parker tonight.  Kirsten, you gave Parker a real competitive match last time.   Do you expect to do the same thing tonight?

Kirsten Canfield: I don’t expect anything, Kellie.  Um.  Graysie is a great wrestler.  She’s got an all-time great wrestler as her manager.  I’m going to have to catch a couple breaks and then wrestle my best match to have a chance.

Kellie Burkowski: Can you do it?

Kirsten Canfield: The fact is Graysie Parker is the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s champion and she’s earned every accolade she’s received.  Talk is real cheap.  The fact is Parker hasn’t been really challenged.  Can I do it?  Again, I will have to wrestle my best match and hope I get a few breaks to win this.  But we’ll give it everything we’ve got.

Kellie Burkowski: Thanks and good luck Kirsten.

Kristen Canfield: Thank you.

Canfield exits.

Kellie Burkowski: Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: Thanks Kellie.  (To Rick) I think Kirsten Canfield understands the enormity of the task before her tonight.

Rick Hall: She’s a level headed kid Thunderbolt and she knows just how good Graysie Parker is.  But Kirsten knows how to play defense and keep her opponent off guard.  She knows she’s got to use her particular talents to keep away from Parker’s power.  We’ll see if she can do it.

Thunderbolt Smith: We would be remiss not to mention what happened this past Saturday night on High Octane Wrestling’s Refueled Fifty.  In his first match back with HOW after resigning with the company a few weeks ago, former MVW Men’s Heartland champion – the Sunshine God – Rah took on the Son of God himself, HOW World Champion Michael Lee Best for the HOW World title.

Rick Hall: A little background here, Mike Best said on the radio a couple weeks ago that he was going to defend the title early and often and was going to start at the bottom and work his way back up.

Thunderbolt Smith: The SEC’s Jackson C. Horne certainly had a few things to say about Rah getting a title shot.

(AUDIO: The Horne Sounds Wrestling Podcast hosted by Jackson C. Horne with co-host Kyle West)

Jackson C. Horne: Yes.  Just when you think HOW has turned over a new leaf, they turn around and go full blown outlaw, mud show by booking Rah for a title match in his first match back.

Jackson C. Horne: With all the talent that’s been assembled at High Octane Wrestling, the Dan Ryans, Lindsay Troys, High Flyers, the Hollywood Bruvs, Conor Fuses, John Sektors, and the Jatt Starrs, there’s no need to go full blown outlaw, mud show and stick someone who has no business being in a title match in the first place into a *BLEEP*-ing title match against arguably the best wrestler ever to grace a HOW ring.

There’s also a little bit more riding on the match than just the title.

(AUDIO- The Horne Sounds)

Jackson C. Horne: Whatever.  It’s over.  Dawn, we’re over.  And this interview, such as it was, is over!  Go back to Rah and prepare him for slaughter because Mike Best is going destroy him Saturday night. 

Dawn McGill: Thanks Jackson.  The more people keep saying that, the more I get to use this to help motivate Rah.

Jackson C. Horne: Oh, I’m sure you’re doing a lot of things to motivate him in your own special way.

Dawn McGill: But since my deal to train Rah ends Friday, I guess there’s nothing stopping me from doing that…or him.

… So how’s this for motivation?  If Rah wins the title Saturday night, I will go to his hotel room after the show and *BLEEP* his brains out.  There, happy?

Thunderbolt Smith: So how would Rah fare?

(HIGHLIGHTS-Refueled L (50) HOW World Title Match: Michael Lee Best © vs. Rah)

-The champion is aggressive tonight, and a series of right hands back Rah up to the corner. A sharp kick to the knee destabilizes the challenger, and it’s clear that this is the angle the champion wants to work tonight. The crowd is firmly behind Rah, wanting to see him cut the bastard son of HOW short here tonight…

-After throwing the Son of God face first into the turnbuckle with the Sunspot, RAHHHHHH looks to secure his first HOW World Championship with a vicious Solstice Slam..

1… 2….. KICKOUT!

The champion barely powers out at the last second, and rolls out of the ring to take a breather.

-Mike Best scrambles to his feet, he charges off the ropes and rails Rah in the side of the skull with a running shining wizard– I KNEED A HERO, the single most dangerous knee in the game. The crowd is physically and visibly deflated, as the champion falls onto his opponent for the count.

1… 2….. 3!!!!

DING DING DING

Thunderbolt Smith: So Rah fought a good match against HOW legend Michael Lee Best but he comes up just a little short.

Rick Hall: I feel kind of bad for Rah.  No nookie-nookie with Dawn McGill.

Thunderbolt Smith: Bummer.

Rick Hall: Rah gave Mike Best a run for his money.  But Mike Best is Mike Best.

Cut to…

Hyatt Regency McCormick Place Hotel
Downtown Chicago
Saturday January 23rd

It’s after midnight in the bar of the hotel.

FIN: Lockdown
Enos T. Johnson
AGE: 35 / HT: 6′ 1″ WT: 285 / HOME: Garrett, KY
FIN: Lockdown

Cletus and Enos sit at a table away a few feet away from the bar.  Each has a beer in front of them.  Each has an eye on a particular lady sitting at the bar.


Dawn McGill

It’s been a rough few months for her.  Former best friends ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin and Svetlana Kovaleski turned on her.  Managing jobs with The Southern Boys, Charlie Blackwell, and Shizuko Yamazaki didn’t go the way she’d hoped they would and her daughter Victoria struck out on her own again.  Suddenly, McGill found herself without any clients.

Dawn did pick up a gig for a week training former MVW Men’s Heartland champion Rah.  But as you just saw, Rah lost a valiant battle with the reigning HOW World Champion Michael Lee Best and that was that.

Cletus T. Johnson: Enos, son.  That Dawn McGill is shure a fine lookin’ lady, don’t yew think?

Enos eyes the blonde at the bar, by herself, and not looking particularly happy to be doing so.

Enos T. Johnson: Yer correct, Cletus.

Enos takes a drink of his beer.  Cletus follows.

Cletus T. Johnson: Y’know?

Enos T. Johnson: Wut.

Cletus T. Johnson: She’d make a fine addishun tuh thuh Kentucky Redneck Mafia don’t yew think?

Enos T. Johnson: I do.

Cletus T. Johnson: She ain’t workin’ fer anyone else right now. She could play a big-ass role in our plans.

Enos T. Johnson: But how are yew goin’ tuh convince her tuh join our group?

Grinning, Cletus downs another drink of beer.

Cletus T. Johnson: Ah’m goin’ tuh use muh natural charm an’ savy-are-fair tuh woo her.

Cletus produces a bottle of what appears to be men’s cologne.

Cletus T. Johnson: An’ a little this here… KnowwhutImean?

Enos T. Johnson: Uncle Earl Bob’s home brew?

Cletus shows him the hand written label on the back of the bottle.

Cletus T. Johnson: It seems that no uther fragrance is able tuh overshadow thuh aroma uh Uncle Earl Bob’s legendary home brew fer seducin’ an’ courtin’ a woman by jus’ snappin’ his fingers.

Enos T. Johnson: Yeah but duz it work?

As he sprinkles some of Uncle Earl Bob’s home brew on himself, Cletus glances towards the bar.  Dawn is downing a shot of whiskey.

Cletus T. Johnson: I’ll bet yew twenty dollars that Ah’ll take that Miss McGill up tuh her room fer a nite she’ll never fergit.

Enos T. Johnson: An’ woo her tuh our side?

Cletus T. Johnson: An’ woo her tuh our side.

Cletus pulls out a twenty and puts it on the table.  Enos does the same.

Enos T. Johnson: Yer on.    

Cletus combs the few remaining hairs on the top of his head and stands up.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: I have no idea what those two are up to.

Rick Hall: I think Cletus is trolling for some nookie-nookie.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well I got that.  Cletus and Enos are up to something though and doesn’t sound good.

Rick Hall: Well, it is true that Dawn McGill has lost all her clients and for the first time, appears to be without a managerial position in MVW.  No, things did not go well with the Southern Boys and Charlie Blackwell but I don’t think you can pin that on her.  The same with Shizuko Yamazaki.  Ever since the night she beat Jackson C. Horne to secure a divorce from him under her terms, things have just gone south for Dawn.

Thunderbolt Smith: I guess we’ll just wait and see on this recent development.  Kellie Burkowski has J.J. Bittinger with her and let’s go to her.

Cut to Kellie backstage…

BACKSTAGE
Kellie Burkowski: 
Kellie Burkowski here with the challenger in tonight’s Men’s Title match- J.J. Bittinger.

Bittinger enters.

Kellie Burkowski: J.J.  You and Charlie Blackwell have had a few epic battles here over the past thirteen months.  You’ve won one title match.  Charlie’s won one.  Tonight, you do it again.

J.J. Bittinger: Thank you Kellie.  Yes. Pro wrestling is one of those sports where you have to deal with a lot of situations and sometimes, you make mistakes.  I defeated Charlie Blackwell for the title back in December 2019 and then I made a huge mistake when I even considered joining up with the Sports Entertainment Corporation and it cost me the belt the next month.  I won back the belt from ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson when he was with the SEC and then Charlie Blackwell defeated me for the title nearly two months ago. The SEC has been a constant thorn in my side and tonight, I aim to put that right and become a three-time MVW Men’s champion.

Kellie Burkowski: Any extra pressure on you tonight to get the title back?

J.J. Bittinger: I would rather be the man with the title belt than the one chasing the title, yes.  That changes everything.  I have everything to gain now and nothing to lose.  Even if Charlie wins tonight, I’m going to keep on coming.  Because that’s the name of the game.  The Men’s title. Charlie has and I’m backed up against the wall.  You can be damn sure that I’m going to come out and go get that title tonight.

Bittinger then exits.

Kellie Burkowski: All right!  That’s former two-time Men’s Champion J.J. Bittinger.  Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt Smith: J.J. Bittinger looks real fired up tonight.

Rick Hall: Oh yeah.  J.J. hates the SEC and he would love nothing more than to spoil the SEC’s night by winning back the Men’s title from Charlie Blackwell.

“I’m the son of a third generation farmer
I’ve been married ten years to the farmer’s daughter
I’m a God fearin’ hard workin’ combine driver
Hoggin’ up the road on my p-p-p-p-plower
Chug a lug a luggin’ five miles an hour
On my International Harvester..”

Kirsten Canfield walks out on stage to Craig Morgan’s ‘International Harvester’.

Thunderbolt Smith: Kirsten Canfield comes out to a spirited ovation!  This is a big night for her.

Canfield waves to the fans.

Rick Hall: What Kirsten lacks in firepower she makes up with determination.  She will give everything she’s got tonight against a very dangerous foe.

Three miles of cars layin’ on their horns
Fallin’ on deaf ears of corn
Lined up behind me like a big parade
Of late to work road raged jerks
Shoutin’ obscene words
flippin’ me the bird
Well you may be on a state paved road
But that blacktop runs through my payload
Excuse me for tryin’ to do my job
But this year ain’t been no bumper crop
If you don’t like the way I’m a drivin’
Get back on the interstate
Otherwise sit tight and be nice
And quit yer honkin’ at me that way

Canfield starts down towards the ring.

‘Cause I’m the son of a third generation farmer
I’ve been married ten years to the farmer’s daughter
I got two boys in the county 4-H
I’m a lifetime sponsor of the F.F.A.
Hey!
That’s a what I make
I make a lotta hay for a little pay
But I’m proud to say
I’m a God fearin’ hard workin’ combine driver
Hoggin’ up the road on my p-p-p-p-plower
Chug a lug a luggin’ five miles an hour
On my International Harvester

Kirsten rolls into the ring as the music changes.

Baby’s on fire

Boom
Boom, boom

Graysie Parker comes out with Eric Dane wearing the MVW Women’s title around her waist.

Thunderbolt Smith: And there’s the MVW Women’s champion.

Showtime, motherfucker, it’s on
Apocalypse now, I’m droppin’ this bomb
You can’t fuck with this song
I stick to this spliff, I’m not klapping this bong
I’m a wild child, I don’t wanna go to bed
Oh, shit, sorry man, I’m stoned again
Ooh, now everything’s getting so psychedelic
When I’m doosdronk and I forget all my fokken lyrics
Like um, uh, who gives a fuck?

Parker removes the belt and holds up the title for everyone to see.

Don’t worry ’bout it, just blow a kiss to me
I like danger, romance and mystery
I’m a lucky ducky, getting mad shit for free
I rock more bling than Mr. T
I make it look easy ’cause it is to me
My daddy says it’s lekker fokken spiff to see
A South African cherrie makin’ history

Parker and Dane then head towards the ring.

Baby’s on fire
She’s got me going fokken crazy
Soos a mal naaier
O jirre God se Jesus

Baby’s on fire
She’s got me going fokken crazy
Soos a mal naaier
O jirre God se Jesus

Baby’s on fire
Baby’s on fire
Baby’s on fire
Baby’s on fire

Dane and Parker jump up on the ring apron and have a quick talk.  Then Graysie climbs through the ropes and warms up in her corner.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, this is going to be your classic clash of styles.

Thunderbolt Smith: Let’s throw it to Kimber Marshall in the ring for the formal introductions.

Cut to Kimber in the ring.

Kimber Marshall: Ladies and gentlemen, our next match will be one fall and it will be for the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING LADIES TITLE!

She pauses for applause.

Kimber Marshall: Introducing the challenger.  She is from Wichita, Kansas.  KIRSTEN!  CANNNN-FIELD!

Again, Canfield waves to the fans.

Kimber Marshall: And her opponent, accompanied to the ring by wrestling legend Eric Dane, from New Orleans, Louisiana.  She is the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S CHAMPION- GRAYYYYY-SIE!  PARKER!

Parker also receives a loud round of applause.

Parker again on the offensive – bridging capture suplex.  Canfield staggers to the corner.  Parker charges towards her – Canfield avoids an avalanche and Parker hits the turnbuckle.

Eric Dane jumps up on the apron and reads his wrestler the riot act.

Dane shouts finish her to the Women’s champion and Parker moves in for the kill. Pumphandle hold – lift – GRAYSIE DRIVER!!!

Rick Hall: Okay.  That should do it for sure.

Parker with the academic cover.

ONE…

TWO…

THREE!

*DING-DING-DING-DING*

Thunderbolt Smith: And Graysie Parker again fends off a challenge to the Women’s title.

Kimber Marshall climbs into the ring.

WINNER AND STILL MVW WOMEN CHAMPION: Graysie Parker

Canfield gets up to all fours, still catching her breath.

Rick Hall: Kirsten Canfield got her attention early on but once Graysie switched on, Parker just blew her up.

Parker offers a hand to help Canfield up.

Canfield looks up – she accepts and Parker pulls her back up.

Thunderbolt Smith: Before we get to the main event, Kellie Burkowski has Lisa Barbosa-Stevens with her backstage.

Cut to Kellie backstage.

BACKSTAGE
Kellie Burkowski: 
Last week, she defeated Women’s Heartland champion Svetlana Kovaleski by disqualification when Kovaleski used brass knuckles to knock out Barbosa-Stevens.  Then this happened Wednesday night on MVW’s syndicated television show Lock and Loaded.

(HIGHLIGHT-Lock and Loaded: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens vs. ‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot)

Barbosa-Stevens goes to the top turnbuckle for a senton.  Kovaleski suddenly appears at ringside.  Lisa turns to face her.  Both women start jawing back and forth.  Then Harlot comes up and crotches Barbosa-Stevens on the turnbuckle.

Harlot then pulls off with a top rope facebuster.  Barbosa-Stevens gets the wind knocked out of her.  Lani pulls her up into an accordion top move across her back shoulder and locks in the elevated White Trash Compacter.

Trapped with no way to escape, Barbosa-Stevens taps out.

Kellie Burkowski: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens joins us.

An irritated Lisa Barbosa-Stevens steps into the shot and doesn’t even wait for Kellie to pose a question.

Lisa Barbosa-Stevens: Svetlana.  Okay.  You want to play rough- we’re going to play rough.  You got two over on me and this is where it stops.  Once I take care of Tori McGill or whomever comes out of the number two versus number three match, we’re going to settle this matter in two weeks. You bring your SEC buddies with you.  I promise you, the Stevens Dynasty will be on hand and we will be there in full force.

Barbosa-Stevens exits.

Kellie Burkowski: A very unhappy Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.  Thunderbolt?  Back to you.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: Ladies and gentlemen.  It’s time.

*“Whiskey Man”- Molly Hatchet*

The crowd pops as the music of J.J. Bittinger plays.

A few seconds later, Bittinger makes his way out as the vocals to the song begin.

Hey whiskey man, you’re running as hard as you can
You drink your whiskey too much more than you can stand
You have your highs, you have your lows
Nobody knows which way you go

Bittinger starts towards the ring.

Whiskey man, don’t you play that hand too long
Whiskey man, don’t you play that hand too long

Bittinger makes his way down the aisle to ringside.  He does not stop to acknowledge the cheers.

Thunderbolt Smith: J.J. Bittinger is a two-time MVW Men’s champion. He defeated Charlie Blackwell for the title back in December of 2019- Charlie won the title back from Bittinger back in November of last year.

J.J. rolls into the ring and warms up.

Music change.

The music then changes.

Don’t be late to get in line
To party wherever we go!

‘Texas Kind of Way’- Cody Johnson

Thunderbolt Smith: And here comes the MVW Men’s champion.

The arena lets loose with a chorus of loud boos when Charlie Blackwell pops out on stage.

Colorado is too cold
The snow gets the best of me
Just laying there beside the fire place
Looks like where you oughta be

Blackwell turns his back and shows off his robe which has ‘Charlie Wrestling’ embroidered on the back.

And Oklahoma is too rich
With American history
It’s kind funny how it reminds me
Of all those books you use to read

The SEC begins their walk to the ring.

And if I stay gone much longer
I might really go insane
‘Cause no matter where I go
Well I’ll just be missing you
In a Texas kind of way

Thunderbolt Smith: As the Men’s Champion climbs into the ring, let’s send it down to Kimber Marshall inside the ring.

Cut to Kimber in the ring…

Kimber Marshall: Ladies and gentlemen!  This match will be…

ONEEEE FALLLLL!

Kimber Marshall: …and it will be for the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S TITLE!

Pause for applause.

Kimber Marshall: Introducing the challenger.  He is from Cherokee, North Carolina.  He is a TWO-time Missouri Valley Wrestling Men’s champion.  JAY!  JAY!  BITTINGER!

The crowd stands and cheers.  Bittinger gives a short wave and continues to get warmed up.

Kimber Marshall: And his opponent, representing the Sports Entertainment Corporation-

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Mr. McMann does the little circling index finger thing as a visual cue that he simply doesn’t give a damn about what they think.

Kimber Marshall: He is the reigning MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S CHAMPION!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Kimber Marshall: From Dallas, Texas. He is Charlie Wrestling- CHARRRRRRR-LIE.  BLACK-WELLLLLLLLLL!

*DING-DING*

Thunderbolt Smith: And here we go!

Blackwell comes out tentatively.  Bittinger shoots across the ring and sends Blackwell to the mat with a flying shoulder tackle.

RAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Thunderbolt Smith: Bittinger right out of the box is going right after Blackwell.

Rick Hall: Bittinger is usually a little more methodical.  He may be trying a different tack with Blackwell.

Nice standing dropkick decks Blackwell.  Cover.

ONE…

Thunderbolt Smith: That snapped Bittinger’s head back again!

Rick Hall: Bittinger never saw that coming.

Blackwell goes top rope – DIVING MOONSAULT!  Bittinger knocked to the ground.  Blackwell rolls him over…

Thunderbolt Smith: KATAHAJIME!

Bittinger tries to roll back and forth.

‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann shakes the hand of SEC Mouthpiece Phil Finebaum.

Rick Hall: And Mr. McMann and the SEC get the last laugh of the evening.

McMann motions to SEC Chief of Security Jackson C. Horne.

Horne nods and slaps the back of SEC’s Hired Guns Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane.  Michaels and Gibson-Lane hit the ring and go right after Bittinger.

Thunderbolt Smith: What are they doing!

Michaels and Gibson-Lane start stomping away at the fallen Bittinger.

Rick Hall: The SEC’s feeling their oats tonight and they are sending a big message to the rest of MVW here tonight.

Gibson-Lane pulls a defenseless Bittinger up – SUPERKICK by Michaels!  Bittinger topples over face first to the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith: Sending a message is one thing.  This is overkill.

*”Cursed of Cured- Icon for Hire

Thunderbolt Smith: Hold on!

The crowd is puzzled.  Meanwhile, Michaels and Gibson-Lane continue to mug J.J. Bittinger.

Thunderbolt Smith: IT’S DARIN MATTHEWS! Darin Matthews is here!

Matthews rushes down to the ring.

Rick Hall: The SEC brought Darin Matthews back?

Mr. McMann sees him coming- he’s not sure how to react.

The crowd- they don’t know how to react.

Matthews in the ring now.  Michaels and Gibson-Lane stop and turn to him.  They definitely don’t know how to react.

Thunderbolt Smith: Matthews was affiliated with the SEC when he was here last year.  This can’t be good news for J.J. Bittinger.

Rick Hall: I don’t know Thunderbolt.  This all looks kind of awkward.

Matthews nods to them.  Michaels and Gibson-Lane resume the post-match beat down.

Thunderbolt Smith: As I said.  This can’t be good news for- WHOA!

Matthews spins Michaels towards him – Matthews whirls around and cuts him down with a discus clothesline.

Rick Hall: I KNEW IT!

Thunderbolt Smith: BAN HAMMER!

Gibson-Lane attacks – BAN HAMMER TO GIBSON-LANE!

Blackwell charges back in the ring – Ban Hammer, NO!  Blackwell ducks.  Matthews ducks a Blackwell right hand – Matthews spins – BAN HAMMER TO BLACKWELL!

Thunderbolt Smith: DOWN GOES BLACKWELL!

Foster and Walker attack the SEC’s P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit as they tried to climb into the ring to assist Michaels, Gibson-Lane, and Blackwell.   The PFB pull the SEC tag team off the apron and they land hard on the floor.

Rick Hall: AND THEY ARE IN THE MOOD FOR SOME PAYBACK OF THEIR OWN!

Foster pulls up Banks – MOONSHINER!

Walker pulls up Walstreit – MOUNTAINEER DEATH BOMB!

Matthews tosses Blackwell out of the ring.  Then Michaels.  Then Gibson-Lane.
