SEVEN QUESTIONS WITH DAWN McGILL
Kellie Burkowski sat down with Dawn McGill on the anniversary of her breakout match in High Octane Wrestling where she defeated Tim Shipley to win HOW’s LSD Title.
What do you remember about that night?
-Well, I remember going into the match thinking that this would probably be my last big chance at a title. I’d wrestled Max Kael for the ICON title in November of 2009 and nearly beat him and up to that point, that was the high point of my HOW career. Quite frankly, I was the ‘lonesome loser’ long before Scott Stevens came along and the plucky face who the fans got behind. I remember Tim Shipley basically ignoring me before the match and looking way past me. During the match, Tim got off on the front foot but then Roxie, his valet, got kicked out for interfering in the match and that’s when everything changed.
The Testicular Claw?
-Oh yeah. I slapped that on and Tim suddenly figured out that I meant business. And then I followed up with the Figure Four and pinned his shoulders on the mat. Huge upset. Probably the biggest upset in HOW history until a guy named Adonis Smyth came along and defeated Michael Best.
Winning two titles in the same week?
-Right. I teamed up with Jackie Daniels to win the Missouri Valley Wrestling Tag Team titles a few days later. Best week ever.
Are you officially retired?
-From full time action? Yes, I am done. My full time job is being a mother to the three children I have at home. I have Eva who’s pushing eight years old and my three old twins R.K. and Gracie from my marriage to Ray McAvay to take care of now and that’s my main focus. I’ll probably never be the arch-typical housewife and my husband Jackson Horne doesn’t expect me to be one. But my main job is raising my children.
Speaking of Ray McAvay (Dawn’s ex-husband from 2015-2017). Your thoughts on how he’s done running MVW and how do you get along these days?
-(laugh) We get along just fine. I know there’s always an open door for me to come back to MVW if I get the itch again. As for how he’s doing running the show, I think Ray’s doing a great job. He’s got Laura Bergman helping him out with the business end and I think the results speak for themselves.
How does it feel to watch your daughter Tori in the ring?
-Um…bittersweet. She’s twenty-three and blessed with being young and strong and talented and I’m pushing forty now. It doesn’t really seem that long ago that I wrestled Tim Shipley for the HOW LSD title or Michael Best at the first WWR supershow when I was twenty-eight, twenty-nine and full of rocket fuel. So. Yeah. Bittersweet.
-Raising my children. Will I still make the occasional appearance? Absolutely. I will be Tessa Martin’s part-time manager going forward. But I think I’m ready to step away from pro wrestling being my full time gig.
MVW REWIND: Tim Shipley © vs. Dawn McGill – HOW LSD Title / January 21st, 2010
(courtesy of High Octane Wrestling)
Joe Hoffman: Welcome back folks and it is time for our first of three title matches here tonight and folks this just might be the last time we see one Dawn McGill get a title shot here in HOW.
Benny Newell: I will tell you one thing Joe..that bitch is persistent and I have no clue on how she keeps getting these shots at titles but I have a very good feeling that she sucks cock…yes gay cock.
Joe Hoffman: Seriously? You went there?
Joe is shaking his head as the action cuts to the HOV screen as we see a replay of the finish of the triple threat Cage match for the ICON Championship last week on Turmoil….a match that showed that Tim Shipley belongs with the big boys here in HOW.
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….
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 Dawns 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….
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.
The action finally cuts away to the backstage area…
