Change/Updated Schedule of Events for 2020

#OOC  Here’s the scoop.  Over two weeks ago, I underwent major surgery of which I am still in the process of recovery.   With this in mind, I worked to get as much done prior to the first week of October in an attempt to minimize the disruption.   Plus, I received an assist from Justin Taylor with the 10/12 Wrestling Night in the Heartland to help finish that show- thanks Justin.

We were hoping to have brand new stuff up this past weekend.  We didn’t.  Why? Because I’m still recovering from surgery and real life > fake pretend wrestling.

So we are pushing the schedule back a week and will work to get things restarted on 10/26- two weeks after the last Wrestling Night in the Heartland.

10/12-Normal, IL House Show Recap


Missouri Valley Wrestling House Show Report
Redbird Arena
Normal, IL
Monday October 12th, 2020

Missouri Valley Wrestling returned to action on Monday night with a ten match card featuring two women’s title aired live on Wrestling Night in the Heartland and a pair of Men’s #1 contender’s matches.

Missouri Valley Wrestling Normal, IL Results:
MATCH #1-‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido defeated Pete Howe, Corey Beckett, and Bullethead
Four way match.  Bullethead was eliminated first.  Howe went next.  Escondido vs. Beckett.  Escondido then gave the MVW rookie an abject wrestling lesson before finishing him off with the Brainbuster.

MATCH #2-Sports Entertainment Corporation: Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin defeated The Hanson Sisters: Andrea and Melissa
Big win for the SEC here.  Carmondy and Tessa seem to be jelling as a tag team and repulsed everything the Hansons threw at them.  Tessa hit the Pizza Cutter on Melissa to get the pinfall and the SEC are on the verge of breaking into the top four of the Women’s Tag Team rankings.

MATCH #3-The People’s Front of Berea (KY)-Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker defeated The Murder Hornets: Murder Hornet #1 and #2
#3 vs. #4-Men’s Tag Team Division.  The Murder Hornets came out buzzing and nearly came away with the win.  But Foster and Walker pulled it together late, Walker spiked Murder Hornet #1 with the MDB (Mountaineer Death Bomb) and the PFB take the win to maintain their #3 ranking in the Men’s Tag Team division.

MATCH #4-Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose defeated The O’Neders: Rita and Anita
#2 vs. #3-Women’s Tag Team Division.  Geena and Eliza may have run into the unstoppable force known as the Missouri Valley Fight Club at the Heartland PPV, but somehow they rebounded from the disappointing effort to shock the former tag champions The O’Neders.  Eliza Rose pinned Rita after hitting the Louisville Slugger on her to propel them up to #2 in the Women’s Tag Team rankings.

MATCH #5-John O’Reilly defeated Average Joe (Truckin’ Average Company)
#3 vs #4-Men’s Division.  O’Reilly’s lethal cannonball right hand proves again to be the difference in the match and keeps him at the #3 spot in the Men’s rankings.  O’Reilly now has another date with ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson in the near future.

MATCH #6-Kirsten Canfield defeated ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan
#2 vs. #3-Women’s Division.  Canfield continues to impress picking up another win over the Canadian Cyborg one month and some change after she shocked Sheline Carrigan in Terre Haute, Indiana for the first time.  Canfield finished Carrigan with the Wheatshocker Deluxe to maintain her #2 ranking and will face Shizuko Yamazaki again in a #1 contender’s match.

MATCH #7–#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH/MEN’S TAG TEAM: The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller/’Dangerous’ Dan Williams defeated Truckin’ Average Company: Ken Worth-American Trucker/Brad Company
Miller and Williams were just too much for TAC and cruise to a quick and easy win.  Williams submitted Worth with the Devil’s Triangle and set up yet another showdown with the Sports Entertainment Corporation for the tag belts.

MATCH #8–#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH/MEN’S TITLE: ‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell (The Southern Boys) defeated ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson (The SEC) via DQ
Dickinson and Blackwell went to war and slugged it out for fifteen minutes.  Then the SEC got cute and sent their hired guns (Bobby Ricky Michaels/Marty Gibson-Lane) in to help tip the match to Dickinson.  But Blackwell’s manager Dawn McGill alerted referee Davey Keels and he immediately disqualified Dickinson.

Post match, Sports Entertainment Genius Mr. McMann and the SEC surrounded Keels and demanded he restart the match.  Finally, MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay intervened and told the SEC to get out of the ring.  McMann and McAvay then argue for a few minutes before the MVW owner sent security down to clear the ring.

At this point, the show went live on HOTv and Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall did their introductions.

MATCH #9-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: The Missouri Valley Fight Club: Carrieanne McDermott/Harley Davisson © defeated The People’s Front of Berea: Bailey Foster/Kellyanne Morris
Foster and Morris don’t go away without a fight but the MVFC kicked it into a different gear halfway through the match.  The PFB had no answer and McDermott sealed the deal with the Indian Death Lock to Morris to clinch the win.

MAIN EVENT/WOMEN’S TITLE: Graysie Parker © defeated ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki
Unlike her debut match against Bunny LeBrock, Graysie gets a battle from The Shadow Warrior before finally putting her away with the Graysie Lock.

Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv
Monday October 12th, 2020
Redbird Arena
Normal, IL

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

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: Thunderbolt Smith here with you right here on HOTv and with me as always is ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall . . .

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

Rick Hall: Hey.

Thunderbolt Smith: . . . and we are LIVE from Normal, Illinois tonight for a night of MVW wrestling action.  Three weeks ago at the Heartland pay per view show, J.J. Bittinger held off Average Joe to retain the Missouri Valley Wrestling Men’s title.  The People’s Front of Berea men’s tag team got some measure of revenge on Men’s Tag Team Champions The SEC with a DQ win but the champs hold on to the title.  The Missouri Valley Fight Club had little trouble with Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose to retain the Women’s Tag Team title.  And last, but not least, Bunny LeBrock thought she had a clear path to become the new Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion but MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay had another idea.

(REPLAY: HEARTLAND PPV)

Bunny LeBrock is in the ring and demands that Women’s Champion Lisa Barbosa-Stevens hand over the belt to her.

Barbosa-Stevens does come out- as does MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay.  Both climb into the ring.

Lisa reluctantly hands McAvay the title belt.  McAvay then tells LeBrock she can have the title if she ‘passes the test.’

The lights go out- and then come back on.  Someone else is leaning against the corner turnbuckle and she’s ready to wrestle.


“The Iron Butterfly” Graysie Parker
AGE: 24 / HT: 5’ 3” WT: 150 / HOME: New Orleans, LA

FIN: Graysie Driver (Pumphandle Stuff Piledriver)

Parker glares across the ring at LeBrock like the predator sizing up her prey.

…Graysie has LeBrock set up for a pumphandle move.  She lifts and spikes Bunny to the mat with what she calls the Graysie Driver (Pumphandle Stuff Piledriver) and LeBrock is in la-la land.  Parker with the easy cover.  1…2…3.  New Champion

Rick Hall: Graysie is all power, all the time and she proved that to the MVW fans at Heartland with a dominating performance against Bunny LeBrock.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well ladies and gentlemen, tonight Graysie is here and she will defend the title for the first time against the Shadow Warrior Shizuko Yamazaki . . .

*“Baby’s on Fire” by Die Antwoord*

Thunderbolt Smith: . . . and she is here right now with her manager, Defiance Wrestling legend and current High Octane Wrestling star, Eric Dane.


‘The Only Star’ Eric Dane (courtesy of High Octane Wrestling)

Graysie and Dane walk out together onto the stage.

Kellie Burkowski: First thing’s first, Graysie, congratulations on becoming the MVW Women’s Champion in your first ever match in the Missouri Valley! How does it feel to be the champion?

Graysie Parker: Honestly it feels great! I mean-

Eric Dane interrupts by reaching over and grabbing Burkowski’s mic hand and pulling it, and her, over to him. Graysie makes a face.

Eric Dane: From here on out, Kellie, unless otherwise specified you’ll be addressing me. Graysie is here to wrestle. The Only Star is here to talk. Capiche?

Kellie Burkowski: Alright, then, Mr. Dane, what can we expect to see from Graysie here in MVW?

Eric Dane: Utter domination. Next question.

Kellie, ever the consummate professional, stands her ground.

Kellie Burkowski: Surely you’d care to expand? Our fans aren’t familiar with Graysie and-

Eric Dane: Look, what do you want me to say, that she’s here for the competition? That she’s here to make her mark on the illustrious Missouri Valley?

Graysie, doing her best to not be lost in the shuffle, shoulders her way into the conversation. The champ is thick, all muscle and power, and she easily hip-checks The Only Star back a few inches.

Graysie Parker: Actually Kellie, I am here to make my mark on MVW! And more than that, I’m here to work my way up, make a name for myself, and get myself a contract with a national company! I want to travel the world wrestling, Kellie, I want to do it all! And this…

She brandishes the MVW Women’s title belt.

Graysie Parker: …is just the beginning!

Graysie smiles, her mentor rolls his eyes.

Kellie Burkowski: Well there you have it! Thunderbolt, back to you!

Thunderbolt Smith: Thanks Kellie. We will also hear from Dawn McGill about her wrestler Shizuko Yamazaki, Graysie Parker’s opponent tonight, later on in the show.  Earlier tonight, we had two number one contender’s matches for the Men’s and Men’s Tag Team title.

Rick Hall: That’s right Thunderbolt.  The Men’s Tag Team #1 contender’s match saw the Southern Boys take on Truckin’ Average Company for a shot at the champions in two weeks.

(VIDEO: The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller/’Dangerous’ Dan Williams vs. Truckin’ Average Company: Ken Worth-American Trucker/Brad Company)

Miller and Williams start fast, working quick tags and isolating Brad Company from the outset.

Company finally gets the hot tag to the American Trucker.  Worth takes down Miller, then Williams, then Miller again, and then Williams one more time.

-Quick shots both Dawn McGill (The Southern Boys) and Tequila Sheila (Truckin’ Average Company) cheering on their respective teams but staying out of the fray.

Worth eventually tires.  Miller takes him down with a missile drop kick and Williams slides in to lock in the Devil’s Triangle.  Worth tries to fight out of it.  Miller races across the ring and makes sure Company does not interfere.  Worth taps out.

Rick Hall: Miller and Williams were just too much for TAC and cruise to a quick and easy win.  Williams submitted Worth with the Devil’s Triangle and set up yet another showdown with the Sports Entertainment Corporation for the tag belts.

Thunderbolt Smith: And then there was this one.  A Men’s title shot on the line.  Bill Dickinson looking to get the Men’s title back but standing in his way?  Charlie Blackwell.

(VIDEO: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson (The SEC) vs. Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell of the Southern Boys)

Full complement of SEC watch at ringside.  Miller, Williams, and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler with manager Dawn McGill represent the Southern Boys in Blackwell’s corner.

Dickinson goes after Blackwell right away.  Blackwell does well to evade using the 5 ‘Ds’ from Dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive, and . . . dodge, to frustrate Dickinson in the early going.

Dickinson does draw Blackwell into a slugfest for a few minutes in the middle section of the match.  Blackwell holds his own but Dickinson tosses him all over the ring.  He goes for the Southern Fried Powerbomb- Blackwell rakes the eyes and flips through.

Again, Dickinson aggressively pursues Blackwell- Blackwell uses his technical ability to evade.  Dickinson becomes more frustrated.

Blackwell drop toeholds Dickinson into the corner turnbuckle.  Dickinson tumbles backwards and falls- Blackwell pounces and locks in the Katahajime.  Bereft of energy in the sixteenth minute of the match, Dickinson fades fast and appears to be about to tap out.  Then, SEC’s hired guns Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane climb into the ring.  McGill screams at referee Davey Keels just as Michaels approaches- Keels immediately calls for the bell and disqualifies Dickinson on the spot.

Rick Hall: So Dickinson and Blackwell went to war and slugged it out for fifteen minutes.  Then the SEC got cute and sent their hired guns (Bobby Ricky Michaels/Marty Gibson-Lane) in to help tip the match to Dickinson.  But Blackwell’s manager Dawn McGill alerted referee Davey Keels and he immediately disqualified Dickinson.

Thunderbolt Smith: Blackwell gets the win but the fun really began afterwards.

Rick Hall: Yeah, the SEC were pissed.

(VIDEO: continued)

An irate Sports Entertainment Genius Mr. McMann and the rest of SEC surround Keels and demand that he restart the match.

McMann is nose to nose with Keels and he is furious.

Finally, MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay comes out to the stage and tells the SEC to get out of the ring.

Rick Hall: McMann and McAvay argued back and forth for a few minutes before the MVW owner sent security down to clear the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: So in two weeks, The Southern Boys will challenge the SEC once again for the MVW Men’s Tag Team title – Men’s Champion J.J. Blackwell will defend his MVW Men’s Title against Charlie Blackwell.  Tonight though- we’ve got two title matches for you.   We’ll run them down for you when return after this commercial break.  We’ll be back with the action right after these messages here on HOTv.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: Welcome back to Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv.  Two big title matches on the docket for tonight.

-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: The Missouri Valley Fight Club: Carrieanne McDermott/Harley Davisson © vs. The People’s Front of Berea: Bailey Foster/Kellyanne Morris

-WOMEN’S TITLE: Graysie Parker © vs. ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki

Thunderbolt Smith: We’ve already heard from Eric Dane and Graysie Parker tonight.  Now, let’s go backstage where Kellie Burkowski has the challengers in tonight’s upcoming Women’s Tag Team Title match.  Kellie?

PEOPLE’S FRONT OF BEREA INTERVIEW
Kellie brings in the People’s Front of Berea: Bailey Foster, Kellyanne Morris and Delaney Foster.  Also there, PFB members: Zeb Morris, Dayle Joe Foster, and Ezekiel Walker.

Kellie Burkowski: Thank you Thunderbolt.  Bailey, you and Kellyanne are taking on Missouri Valley Wrestling’s most dominant women’s tag team in the Missouri Valley Fight Club tonight.  What are you thinking about right now?

Bailey Foster: Kellie dear, we ain’t thinking about anything more than winning the belts.  That’s th’ only reason we’all are here.  Winnin’ titles.

Kellyanne Morris: Amen to that Bails.  Kellie honey, we’ve done this before.  Now, we go the PFB with us and we aim to shock the world . . .

Bailey Foster: And the Missouri Valley Fight Club.

Kellyanne Morris: Yep.  The People’s Front of Berea ain’t to be overlooked. We can do this.

Kellie Burkowski: Thank you both.

Mr. McMANN CALLS ON RAY McAVAY. . . AGAIN.
Once again, an irate ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann, SEC Mouthpiece Phil Finebaum, and Director of Security Jackson C. Horne invade Ray McAvay’s office after the latest kick in the teeth in the form of referee Davey Keels’s disqualification of the SEC’s ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson earlier in the night.

Mr. McMann: YOU are biased against the SEC!

McAvay sits calmly behind his desk.

Mr. McMann: What happened tonight makes a mockery of sports entertainment and deprives the best wrestling in Missouri Valley Wrestling from getting the chance to regain his title that he’s entitled to.

Phil Finebaum chimes in as well.

Phil Finebaum: The SEC is Missouri Valley Wrestling’s premier faction.  You are showing extreme disrespect for us when your officials treat us in this matter.  We are the best and we deserve respect.

McAvay kicks back in his chair.

Ray McAvay: Listen to yourselves.  We’re entitled . . . we’re being disrespected . . . WAAH, WAAH, WAAH!  How about this?  Your guys just aren’t getting the job done and that’s why you keep resorting to outside interference.

McAvay shakes his head.

Ray McAvay: No.  You need to fix your own house first before you go off blaming my officials for your losses.

Finebaum looks as if he’s ready to come across the desk.

McMann exhales.  And drops the snarky tone.

Mr. McMann: Okay.  Look Ray.  Here’s the issue.  CSPN . . .

That’s Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Programming Nation.

Mr. McMann: . . . they’re upset that we lost the Men’s title and we’re not making the headway we expected – they expected – in the Women’s divisions.  I’m kind of on the hot seat here.

This gives the MVW Owner/CEO some pause.

Ray McAvay: I get where you’re coming from.  But I’ll point out that I’ve given you some leeway on the Bunny LeBrock issue.  You know and I know she’s de facto a part of the SEC but because you’re exploiting a loophole I’m giving you a little slack there.  I’ll go back to what I said earlier, you need to fix your own house.

McAvay stands up.

Ray McAvay: I have another meeting coming up, gentlemen.  You can see yourselves out.

Cut back to the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt Smith: The SEC is running into some problems.

Rick Hall: Yeah.  They didn’t expect Dickinson to lose to J.J. Bittinger. They certainly weren’t counting on Charlie Blackwell knocking him off either.  The SEC men’s tag team is doing well.  Bunny LeBrock got curb stomped by Graysie Parker at Heartland.  And Christa Carmondy and ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin are still trying to crack the top four in the Women’s Tag Team rankings.  So yeah, the SEC has been light on results of late.

Thunderbolt Smith: One team that has NOT been light on results is the reigning Women’s Tag Team champions- The Missouri Valley Fight Club.  Kellie Burkowski has them with her right now.  Kellie?

MISSOURI VALLEY FIGHT CLUB INTERVIEW
Indeed, Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott of the MVFC are standing next to Kellie Burkowski.

Kellie Burkowski: Harley, you heard with the People’s Front of Berea said a few minutes ago.

Harley Davisson: Yes.

Kellie Burkowski: Your response?

Harley Davisson: You’ll just have to wait a few minutes, Kellie.

And with that, the Women’s Tag Team champions exit.

Kellie Burkowski: Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: Yeah, they’ll do their talking in the ring.

*‘Rednecker’- Hardy*

Thunderbolt Smith: And here comes the challengers now.

The crowd explodes as Hardy’s ‘Rednecker’ blares over the sound speaker and out walks Zeb Morris with Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker behind him.  Then Delaney Foster leads Bailey Foster and Kellyanne Morris on stage.

Rick Hall: It looks like Delaney Foster is getting re-established as a member of the group after she turned on the PFB in June and cost Foster and Walker the Men’s Tag Team title.

Zeb Morris leads the group to the ring.

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

That’s the cue for Harley Davisson to ride out to the stage on her Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Thunderbolt Smith: Since the Women’s Tag Team title was created in February 2019, The Missouri Valley Fight Club have held the belts for all but four and a half months.

Davisson parks the bike and dismounts.

Rick Hall: Here’s a case where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  As single’s wrestlers, both Davisson and McDermott had fair to middling success.  But now, together, Davisson and McDermott have turned into a damn good tag team.

Davisson poses on stage for the crowd as the heavy metal music transitions into traditional bagpipe music.

“Scotland the Brave”- Traditional

Thunderbolt Smith: And here comes Carrieanne.

Carrieanne McDermott walks out with a group of bagpipers.

Rick Hall: Actually McDermott did have early success in MVW in the first few months of its existance.

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

Thunderbolt Smith: All right.  Both teams are out here and it’s time to send to our ring announcer, Kimber Marshall.  Kimber, it’s all yours.

Cut to Kimber inside the ring.  She waits as both Davisson and McDermott climb in and gets themselves sorted out.

Kimber Marshall:  Ladies and gentlemen!  This match will be . . .

ONE FALL!

Kimber Marshall: . . .  and it will be for the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE!

She pauses as the crowd cheers in response.

Kimber Marshall: Introducing first, the challengers. . .

GROUP: Zeb Morris, Dayle Joe Foster, Ezekiel Walker

The PFB receive a very healthy round of applause from the MVW fans.

Kimber Marshall: And their opponents, they are the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!

The MVFC also get a rousing reception from the crowd.

Missouri Valley Fight Club
Carrieanne McDermott
AGE: 32 / HT: 5′ 9″ WT: 138 / HOME: Glasgow, Scotland

FIN: Kick Start (Detonation Kick)

McDermott and Davisson proudly hold up the women’s tag belts.

Thunderbolt Smith: The last time out at the Heartland PPV, McDermott and Davisson completely outclassed Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose.

Rick Hall: Yes.  But I would say that Morris and Foster will pose more of a threat to the MVFC.  They are veterans and even though they’ve never been champions, Morris and Foster have been in this position a few times.  They know what they need to do.  The question is- can they do what they need to do?

Thunderbolt Smith: Thanks Rick.  Our referee for tonight’s match will be senior official Corrina Romanov.  She checks with both teams.  They’re ready.  And she calls for the bell.

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

MATCH #1:
WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH

Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott ©
vs.
People’s Front of Berea: Bailey Foster and Kellyanne Morris

**************************************
Davisson and Morris start out.  Both women circle and jockey for position.  Morris feints – Davisson reacts.  Davisson feints – Morris reacts.

They play cat and mouse for a few more seconds.  Lock up.  Morris takes a headlock.  She tries to make Davisson work hard to escape – Davisson reverses.  She steps back – Davisson pops Morris with a right hand.  Morris clocks Davisson with a right.  Davisson rakes the eyes.  Bodyslam from Davisson – no.  Morris uses her strength to block.  Davisson with a boot to the gut – standing spinebuster follows.  Davisson off the ropes – clothesline takes her down. Cover.  1 -2 –No! Morris kicks out.

Rick Hall: Morris is the heavier and stronger of the two.  Davisson won’t be able to just overpower her.

But Morris also tires quick.  She tag in Bailey Foster.   Foster kicks at Davisson’s leg, knocking her down to a knee.  Foster goes to work on it.  Davisson whacks her in the temple with a closed fist – referee Corrina Romanov starts a five count on that.  Davisson forces Foster back to her feet – Foster tries to hang on with a headlock – Davisson powers out.  She goes to her corner and tags in the Scot, Carrieanne McDermott.

Rick Hall: Both Foster and Morris trying to generate some offense.  But Davisson is too wiley and now the PFB will have to deal with the technical expertise of Carrieanne McDermott.

But first a little double team action.  Davisson and McDermott whip Foster into the ropes and strike with a double back elbow – McDermott steps back –superkick – Foster lands flat on her back.  Cover.  1 -2- NO!  Foster gets a shoulder up at the last.  McDermott hooks both of Foster’s legs under her armpits – reaches down and underneath Foster’s chin and leans back.

Thunderbolt Smith: McDermott with the Leg-trap camel clutch!

Rick Hall: This is not where Bailey Foster wants to be.  McDermott can pull out any number of different ground-based wrestling holds to wear out her opponent with.

Morris starts to climb through the ropes – Romanov stops her.

Foster stuck in place – McDermott continues to put the pressure on.

Rick Hall: McDermott’s going to drain as much energy as she can from the move.

Thunderbolt Smith: McDermott switches up.

McDermott transitions into a kneebar – Foster yelps in pain.

Rick Hall: This is why you don’t want to get trapped on the ground against Carrieanne McDermott.  She will kill you on the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith: Not literally, but yeah.

Foster tries to move towards the ropes using her free leg.  But she’s not making much headway.

Rick Hall: Bailey’s in a bad spot and I don’t think she can get out.

With Romanov checking on Foster, Morris can’t wait anymore and bursts through the ropes – she delivers a forearm shot to McDermott that breaks the hold.

Rick Hall: Kellyanne Morris makes the save.

Thunderbolt Smith: But here comes Harley Davisson!

Davisson in and delivers a series of nasty knife-edged chops to Morris.

Morris whips Davisson to the ropes – back body drop?  *WHACK*  No.  Davisson punts Morris in the face instead.

Rick Hall: Kellyanne Morris telegraphed that back body drop so badly everyone in the arena knew it was coming.

Romanov orders both women from the ring.

Foster uses the ropes to pull herself up.  She then tries to go to the top of the turnbuckle and wastes precious time trying to do so.

Rick Hall: I don’t know what she’s thinking but Bailey should really tag Kellyanne Morris back in here.

Bailey to the top – McDermott reanimates and pops up.  She goes right over to Foster who’s stuck and knocks out her legs from under her – Foster crotches herself on the top of the turnbuckle.

McDermott climbs up – front facelock – she leaps and flips driving Foster face first to the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith: McDermott spikes Foster with the Diamond Dust!

Foster rolls over on her back.  McDermott makes the cover.  1….2….3.

Thunderbolt Smith: And that’s going to do it!  The Missouri Valley Fight Club will retain the Women’s Tag Team title!

Romanov raises both women’s arms up as Kimber Marshall comes back into the ring.

Kimber Marshall: Your winner at six minutes and thirty-one seconds – and STILL MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!  HARLEY DAVISSON!  CARRIEANNE McDERMOTT!  THE MISSOURI VALLEY FIGHT CLUB!

Thunderbolt Smith: Tough match for the People’s Front of Berea.

Rick Hall: It was but this result was no surprise.  Davisson and McDermott are a step above just about everyone in MVW at the moment.

Thunderbolt Smith: One match down- one match to go.  We’ve got the Women’s title match between champion Graysie Parker and challenger Shizuko Yamazaki coming up right after these messages on HOTv.

The E-Fed Podcast with Mikey Unlikely

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

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: And we are back on Wrestling Night in the Heartland.  Graysie Parker will defend the Women’s title against Shizuko Yamazaki in just a few minutes but first, let’s send it right to the back where Kellie Burkowski has the challenger and her manager Dawn McGill with her.

YAMAZAKI/McGILL INTERVIEW
Kellie brings Yamazaki and McGill into the shot.

Kellie Burkowski: Dawn, tonight your wrestler faces the new champion, Graysie Parker.

Dawn McGill: That’s right Kellie.  Graysie looked really good in her match with Bunny LeBrock at Heartland, she really overpowered LeBrock in every way during the match.

Kellie Burkowski: You’ve had a couple weeks to study up on her.

Dawn McGill: Sure.  All the preparation in the world will not prepare Shizuko for what she’ll face when she wrestles Graysie Parker.  Graysie’s power game will overwhelm you.  Shizuko is strong in her own right and she’ll be able to stand in there a lot better than LeBrock did, but Graysie’s at a much different level.

Kellie Burkowski: Any concerns about Eric Dane being at ringside.

Dawn McGill: No, not really.  From what I’ve heard, Eric has not interjected himself into Graysie’s matches when she worked at other wrestling federations.  Eric’s role with Graysie is probably the same with me and Shizuko.

Kellie Burkowski: What Shizuko has to do to win?

Dawn McGill: She’s going to have to find a way to out-wrestle Parker.   Graysie’s power game is going to be hard to defend but Shizuko’s been in the ring with some pretty good wrestlers- Lisa Barbosa-Stevens, Sheline Carrigan, Christa Carmondy.  Plus as you said earlier, we’ve had a couple weeks to come up with a game plan.

Kellie Burkowski: Is she ready?

Dawn chuckles.

Dawn McGill: Let’s just say Shizuko is still learning.  Tonight, she’s going to go to school and learn a whole lot about herself in this match.

Kellie Burkowski: Thank you Dawn and Shizuko.  Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt Smith: That’s one way to look at the match.

Rick Hall: Based on what I saw at Heartland, Dawn’s exactly right.  Yamazaki is strong.  Parker is a step above that.  Yamazaki’s going to have to elevate her game tonight or else the new women’s champion is just going to steamroll her into the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith: Thank you Rick.

*”Clock Strikes”- One Ok Rock**

Dawn McGill comes out from the back and stops at the middle of the stage.

Then Shizuko Yamazaki comes out to join her.  Dawn points to Yamazaki with both hands and gets the crowd involved.

Thunderbolt Smith: Here’s the challenger now.  ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki.  She’s managed by Dawn McGill.

Dawn leans in to whisper something to Yamazaki.  Yamazaki nods.

Both women then head down towards the ring.

Rick Hall: She doesn’t look too nervous there.

Thunderbolt Smith: Shizuko has been in this spot before.  Is this the night she finally takes the big step forward?

*”Baby’s on Fire” by Die Antwoord*

Thunderbolt Smith: And here we go.  It’s the Women’s Champion!

Graysie Parker walks out on stage first, holding up the MVW Women’s title with both hands.

Eric Dane methodically walks out and stands behind her.

Rick Hall: There’s a lot of experience between the two managers in this match- Eric Dane and Dawn McGill.

Parker and Dane make their way down to the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: As the Women’s champion climbs into the ring, let’s send it down to Kimber Marshall for the formal introductions.

Parker and Dane set up in one corner.  McGill and Yamazaki in the corner opposite.

Kimber Marshall: Ladies and gentlemen!  This next match will be one fall and it is for the MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING – WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE!

Kimber pauses as the crowd responds.

Kimber Marshall: First, the challenger.

“The Shadow Warrior” Shizuko Yamazaki
AGE: 21 / HT: 5’4″ WT: 125 / HOME: Osaka, Japan
FIN: Cranial Contusion
MGR: Dawn McGill

Dawn again points to Yamazaki.  The challenger raises her arms in the air and turns to each corner.

Kimber Marshall: And her opponent?  She is the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion!

“The Iron Butterfly” Graysie Parker
AGE: 24 / HT: 5’ 3” WT: 150 / HOME: New Orleans, LA
FIN: Graysie Driver (Pumphandle Stuff Piledriver)
MGR: Eric Dane

The crowd reaction to Parker is very similar to Yamazaki’s.

Referee Corrina Romanov takes the title belt and raises it up in the air to show the fans.

Thunderbolt Smith: Any last thoughts on this?

Rick Hall: Graysie’s going to get a tougher test from Yamazaki, that’s for certain.

Both Dane and McGill deliver their final instructions to their wrestlers.

Romanov calls for the bell.

Thunderbolt Smith: And we are underway!

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

MAIN EVENT:
MVW WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH

Graysie Parker ©
w/Eric Dane
vs
Shizuko Yamazaki
w/Dawn McGill

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

Parker and Yamazaki approach and then circle.   Lock up.  Yamazaki takes a side headlock.   Parker powers out and sends her to the ropes.  She ducks Yamazaki’s clothesline and the Shadow Warrior hits the opposite ropes.  Back elbow by Parker – Yamazaki ducks – takes Parker by the arm and send her into the ropes.  Shoulder block by Parker on the return and Yamazaki hits the deck hard.

Rick Hall: Textbook shoulder block from Graysie Parker.  Yamazaki will feel that one tomorrow morning.

Parker to the ropes.  Yamazaki drops to the deck – Parker jumps over – turns – snapmare takedown sends Yamazaki back to the mat.  Crucifix pin attempt – Yamazaki rolls through.  Both women up – Parker shoulder blocks Yamazaki back down again.

Rick Hall: Yamazaki is just not going to win that battle.

Quick cut to Dawn McGill.   She winces when Yamazaki runs into a third shoulder block.

Quick cut to Eric Dane.  He seems pleased with the start of the match.

Parker scoops Yamazaki and slams her hard to the mat.  The Shadow Warrior pops right back up and walks right into a stiff lariat clothesline from Parker.  Cover.  1 – 2 – No!  Yamazaki kicks out.

Rick Hall: All Graysie Parker so far.  Yamazaki has not posed any threat to her so far.

Parker snap suplexes Yamazaki to the canvas!   She pulls her up and snap suplexes her down again.

Quick cut to McGill.  She slams her hand on the top rope and shouts ‘Come on!’ at Yamazaki.

Parker comes off the ropes and cuts Yamazaki down with a clothesline.  She runs the ropes again and takes her down again.  But Yamazaki gets up.  Parker puts her head between her legs –lifts her up – and drives her back first to the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith: GRAYSIE BOMB!

Rick Hall: Oh wow.

Cover.  1 – 2- Yamazaki somehow kicks out.

Rick Hall: How in the world did Yamazaki kick out of that?

Thunderbolt Smith: Parker is making this look too easy.

Rick Hall: Way too easy.

Graysie takes her time and pulls Yamazaki up to a wobbly base.  The Women’s champion rears back to throw a right hand – Yamazaki blocks.  Boot to the gut by Yamazaki.  Jawbreaker.   Parker to the mat now.  Yamazaki sets up for an elbowdrop – she hits it.  Cover – Parker shoves her right off.

Rick Hall: Finally, Yamazaki with some offense but that’s not going to finish her off.

Both women back up.  Yamazaki connects with a high kick to Parker.  Again she covers – again Parker powers out at one.  Yamazaki for a hip toss – Parker reverses – she hits the hip toss on Yamazaki.  Boot to the gut by Parker – butterfly hook to Yamazaki’s arms – she flips her up and then sits out spiking Yamazaki to the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith:  Wow!  Graysie Parker with a devastating Butterfly Driver!

Rick Hall: That should be it Thunderbolt.

Parker hooks the leg – 1 – 2 – NO!

Thunderbolt Smith: Yamazaki kicked out!

Rick Hall: How!

Parker’s wondering the same thing.  She sneaks a quick glance at Dane – Dane nods back at her and Graysie goes back to work.  Parker pulls her up in a gutwrench position and then suplexes Yamazaki – she holds on though – gutwrenches her up a second time and suplexes Yamazaki again – and holds on.  Parker gutwrenches Yamazaki up – suplex and drives her to the mat.

Rick Hall: Graysie calls that the Les Tres Muhares and that will take the starch out of just about anyone.

Graysie covers – 1 – 2 – NO!  Yamazaki slips out just before the three count.

Thunderbolt Smith: I can’t believe Shizuko Yamazaki kicked out of that!

Again, Graysie glances over at Dane.  She can’t believe it either.

Rick Hall: I’ve give Yamazaki credit.  She’s taken a bunch of nuclear powered moves from Parker and she’s somehow still in this match.

Dane holds out both hands to try to settle her down.

Yamazaki rolls back and forth and uses the ropes to get back to her feet.

The crowd begins to make noise.

Thunderbolt Smith: IT’S BUNNY LeBROCK!

Bunny LeBrock
AGE: 26 / HT: 5’ 11” WT: 156 / HOME: Riverside, CA
FIN: Bunny Hop

LeBrock runs down with a steel chair towards Dawn McGill.

*WHAM*

Thunderbolt Smith: SHE JUST PASTED McGILL WITH A STEEL CHAIR!

Rick Hall: LeBrock and McGill have exchanged sneak attacks on each other over the past few weeks and this would be the latest provocation.

McGill falls from the ring apron to the floor.  LeBrock lays in a couple more boots and then shouts at Graysie Parker in the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: Parker turns away from Yamazaki and sees LeBrock yelling at her.

Rick Hall: Bunny LeBrock may want to reconsider that after what Parker did to her at Heartl-

Thunderbolt Smith: YAMAZAKI ROLLS HER UP FROM BEHIND!

As Parker stared down LeBrock, Yamazaki crawled over and rolled the unsuspecting Parker for a shock pinfall.

1 – 2- NO!

Thunderbolt Smith: Parker kicked out!

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Graysie lost her focus for a split second and it nearly cost her the match.

Yamazaki lands a chop.  She goes top rope.

Rick Hall: High risk from Yamazaki!

Yamazaki flies – Parker catches her in mid-air – turn – SLAM!  Immediately, Parker rolls her over and aggressively yanks Yamazaki’s head back with her hands cupped around the chin.

Thunderbolt Smith: GRAYSIE LOCK!

Yamazaki immediately taps.

Thunderbolt Smith: And that’s it!

Romanov calls for the bell and Kimber Marshall returns to the ring for the final call on the match.

Kimber Marshall: Your winner at eight minutes and fifty-four seconds and STILL Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion – GRAYSIE PARKER!

Graysie’s arm is raised in victory but the champion keeps an eye on Bunny LeBrock as LeBrock backpedals her way towards the back.

Thunderbolt Smith: Graysie dominated most of the match but Yamazaki absorbed a lot of punishment and kept coming back.

Rick Hall: Dawn McGill thought this would be an educational experience for her rookie wrestler and she wasn’t wrong in the least.  Yamazaki still nearly stole the win here when Parker got distracted by Bunny LeBrock.

Thunderbolt Smith: I don’t think Eric Dane is going to be happy about that.

Rick Hall: No he won’t.  But Graysie got the win and she’s still the champion- that’s all that matters.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right fans.  That’s going to do it for this week’s edition of Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv.  For Rick Hall, I’m Thunderbolt Smith.  We’ll see you next week.

WINNER: Average Joe

SEGMENT EIGHT-Pulp Fiction Videos
-People’s Front of Berea (KY) (Dayle Joe Foster/Ezekiel Walker): Foster and Walker say the win over the SEC at Heartland was nice, but what the PFB wants is the Men’s Title belt back.  They put the SEC on notice that they’re coming.
-Six time Women’s Tag Team Champions Angels of Death (Angel Casey/Angel Scott): Casey declares the AoD is back in business and headed back to the top yet again.  Scott agrees and states that they’ve put a big bullseye on the back of the Missouri Valley Fight Club.  The belts will return again to the AoD.
-Men’s Champion J.J. Bittinger: Bittinger says it doesn’t matter who comes at him next for the title be it Bill Dickinson or Charlie Blackwell.  The belt is his and he plans to hold on to it for a long, long time. 
-Bunny LeBrock: LeBrock says that she hasn’t forgotten about Dawn McGill or what she did to her but her primary focus is winning the Women’s title that was stolen from her by Graysie Parker.  LeBrock complains that she had no time to prepare and that’s why she lost so badly.  She demands an immediate rematch.
-‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan: she’s upset over the fact that Graysie Parker walked right into the company and into a title shot on her first night.  Carrigan calls it an insult to those who’ve worked for MVW for a long time and never, ever get an opportunity to win the title.  Carrigan says she’s got her eye on the new Women’s champion as well.
-‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson: Bill doesn’t say much other than to tell Charlie Blackwell to stay out of his way.  The Men’s title belongs to him and Blackwell wins the title his reign will be short- that’s a promise.

MAIN EVENT-Women’s Champion Graysie Parker vs. Delaney Foster
Parker shoots out of her corner and hits a back suplex on Foster.  Body slam by Parker – no, Foster flips out and hits a quick kick on Parker.  Foster sends Parker to the ropes- no, she reverses and it’s Delaney Foster who goes for the ride.  Huge shoulder block by Parker sends Foster flying across the ring.  Flying knee to the face decks Foster.  Parker hooks the leg – Foster kicks out at two.  Parker drives Foster back to the mat with a Butterfly Suplex.  Hooks the leg again for another two count.  Graysie then hits three rolling gutwrench suplexes in succession.  Cover- Foster is out just before the three count. Graysie Bomb (Vader Bomb) to Foster and that took a lot out of Delaney.  Parker sets her up – Graysie Driver. The end.  1….2…3.

WINNER: Graysie Parker

Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland Presents:

MVW’s Wrestling Night in America Pay Per View Show Recap
Monday June 29th, 2020
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 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.

Geena
Eliza 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.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right, we are halfway done.  We’ll be back with more right after these messages.

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.

Rita
Anita

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.

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.

MVW’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv
Monday January 13th, 2020
Taped Saturday January 11th, 2020
Chaifetz Arena
St. Louis, MO

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

Thunderbolt Smith and Rick Hall start the show from the middle of the ring. Thunderbolt welcomes everyone to the MVW Supershow from the Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, Missouri.

Tonight, there are two title matches on the card and here they are:

MVW Women’s Tag Team Title Match: Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott © vs. Backman Taylor Powerdrive: Charlene Backman and Brianna Taylor

Main Event: MVW Men’s Title Match: J.J. Bittinger © vs. ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson

Hall reminds everyone that tonight is the night MVW Men’s Champion J.J. Bittinger decides if he’s joining the Sports Entertainment Corporation.

[VIDEO: 12/1/2019-Evening of Champions PPV]

‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann tells J.J. Bittinger how impressed he is with what he’s done since coming to MVW. Bittinger’s listening. McMann produces a contract and makes him an ‘offer he can’t refuse’- to be a part of the Sports Entertainment Corporation.

Bittinger says he’s going to take a few days to let what’s happened here tonight sink in before he makes any ‘big decisions.’ McMann nods and respects that. He’ll give Bittinger until his first title defense against ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson to make up his mind.   They shake hands as the show comes to an end.

[VIDEO: 1/6/2020-Wrestling Night in the Heartland]

‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson calls out the new champion J.J. Bittinger- who’s being wooed by McMann and the SEC.

Bill Dickinson: Everyone with that IQ of a brick knows J.J. is joining the SEC next week.  It’s going to go down during our match.  Hell, it’s probably goin’ to cost me the match.

Dickinson implores Bittinger to stop insulting everyone’s intelligence and just get on with it already.

Thunderbolt Smith: Will he or won’t he? We’ll find out tonight.

J.J. BITTINGER INTERVIEW
Kellie Burkowski stands with the MVW Men’s Champion backstage.

Bittinger says when came to Missouri Valley Wrestling he trusted his instincts and bet on himself. And it worked. Bittinger stands before the MVW fans as the MVW Men’s Champion and tonight he faces a huge test. ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson. The 330 pound Southern Brawler. He knows he’ll go into the match with a big weight disadvantage. Bittinger says that what he gives up in size to Dickinson he will make up with skill and determination. He also alludes to the fact that he’ll be joined at ringside by his ‘new family’ to make sure his back is covered. Dickinson is good. But J.J. believes that he’s better and tonight he will prove it to everyone.

Before Kellie can ask if he’s joining the SEC, Bittinger says he has something to take care of and makes a quick exit.

MVW CEO RAY McAVAY’S OFFICE
The leader of the Sports Entertainment Corporation, ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann and McAvay are in the middle of a heated conversation.

Also in the office, Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Programming Nation CEO Mark Splitter and the Mouthpiece of the SEC Phil Finebaum.

McMann argues that based on her past performance and the fact that she is a two time MVW Women’s Champion, Christa Carmondy should automatically get the next title shot no matter what McAvay’s ‘ridiculous ranking system’ says. McAvay disagrees and tells McMann that Christa can start at the bottom and work her way up just like J.J. Bittinger did.

McMann says Christa is already a star-Bittinger still isn’t a star and won’t be until he’s associated with a top flight faction- like the SEC.

The SEC’s official mouthpiece Phil Finebaum chimes in that Christa’s earned the right to jump the line because she’s earned a spot with the elite faction of MVW.

McMann again says no which pisses off Finebaum. He shouts at McAvay that he’s ‘inflexible’ and completely ‘biased’ against the SEC. McAvay’s response?

Image result for lebowski well yeah

McAvay then explains to McMann that he appreciates his input but he’s making clear that unless it’s a special instance– ie…last month’s Evening of Champions pay per view where McAvay does take other factors into consideration when booking title matches, the ranking system – and ultimately the wrestlers themselves – will determine who gets title shots.

Before anyone else can add their two cents, there’s a quick cut back to Thunderbolt and Hall who explain that something just happened backstage.

Another quick cut to…

Medical personnel arrive. Immediately they attend to Dickinson.

Miller, Williams, and Butler are visibly upset. Williams keeps saying ‘Who did this?’ Miller immediately points back to a comment made earlier in the show by Bittinger. Williams remembers.

‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams: Bittinger said he had something to take care of and cut his interview short with that new girl.

The Southern Boys put one and one together. Butler says Bittinger’s dead. Williams smacks his fist on his hand.

Cut back to the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt wonders what this means for the main event tonight as it does not look as if Bill Dickinson can wrestle. Hall has a hard time believing that J.J. Bittinger would mastermind a hit like that on his opponent minutes before their match.

Quick cut to the back to show Dickinson being stretchered out.

Thunderbolt throws it to the ring as we are just about ready for the first match of the night.

==============================================

MATCH ONE/WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE:
The Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott ©
vs.
Backman Taylor Powerdrive: Charlene Backman and Brianna Taylor

==============================================

*‘Takin’ Care of Business’ – Bachman Turner Overdrive*

Randy Bachman’s opening riffs gets the crowd on their feet and announces the arrival of Charlene Backman. Backman bounds onto the stage as the vocals to the song start.

You get up every morning from your alarm clock’s warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There’s a whistle up above and people pushin’, people shovin’
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train’s on time, you can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed, look at me I’m self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

Backman points to the crowd- signaling them to sing along.

And I’ll be taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
I’ve been taking care of business (it’s all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime, work out

Then another BTO song comes on.

*‘You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet’ – Bachman Turner Overdrive*

And that brings out Brianna Taylor. Taylor high fives Backman on the stage.

I met a devil woman
She took my heart away
She said, I’ve had it comin’ to me
But I wanted it that way
I think that any love is good lovin’
So I took what I could get, mmh
Oooh, oooh she looked at me with big brown eyes
And said, You ain’t seen nothin’ yet

Both Backman and Taylor start heading down the aisle towards the ring.

B-b-b-baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-nothin’ yet
Here’s something that you never gonna forget
B-b-b-baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-nothin’ yet

Nothin’ yet, you ain’t been around
That’s what they told me

Then…

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

That’s the cue for Harley Davisson to ride out to the stage on her Harley Davidson motorcycle.

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 and joins Davisson on stage.

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

Thunderbolt Smith: We’ve got the Women’s Tag Team Title match right after these messages.

Rick Hall: Two teams are aren’t afraid to get down and dirty. BTP will try to leverage their size advantage and power their way through McDermott and Davisson. The Missouri Valley Fight Club won’t back down though and they’ll fight, scratch, and claw every second of the match.

Hall adds that while it’s taken a while for Backman Taylor Powerdrive to work their way up the women’s tag team division, they are a dangerous team and one that the Women’s Tag Team Champions won’t underestimate.

Thunderbolt feels BTP are hungry and itching to make their presence known in the tag team division.

Referee Corrina Romanov calls for the bell and we are underway.

Davisson and Backman start. They circle slowly – each waiting for the other to make the first move.

Lock up. Backman shoves Davisson down. Backman whips Davisson to the ropes. Davisson ducks under and runs the ropes. She blocks a hip toss and arm-drags Backman to the mat. Both women back up. Davisson with a dropkick. Backman ducks under the ropes and calls time out!

Fans get fired up. Davisson runs the ropes and builds speed to slam into Backman- sending her tumbling off the apron to the floor. Taylor goes after Davisson and hotshots her down. McDermott starts around the ring to assist. Taylor stomps away on Davisson until McDermott arrives and runs her off.

Davisson back to the ring. Romanov starts a ten count on Backman. Fans rally as Backman Taylor Powerdrive regroup on the floor. Backman back in at nine and she tags in Taylor.

Taylor runs at Davisson. Davisson oles and swings around to push her into the ropes. Off the ropes, Davisson rolls her up…one…t- Taylor easy kick out. Taylor swings wildly. Davisson counter punches. Taylor off the ropes to springboard but runs straight into a boot.   More rights and lefts by Davisson drive Taylor into the MVFC’s corner and Davisson tags McDermott. Taylor flounders as McDermott springboards in and connects with a superkick.   Romanov tells Davisson to get out of the ring but McDermott whips her partner into the corner to crush Taylor against the turnbuckle. McDermott follows with a back elbow then feeds Taylor to Davisson’s Elbow. Romanov starts a count on Davisson- she exits.   German suplex by McDermott. Cover…one…two…Taylor kicks out. McDermott tries to ground the larger woman grapevining arms and slapping on a crucifix armbar.

There’s a disturbance outside the ring. Then three women start towards the ring.

FIN: Mean Girl Crush

Thunderbolt notes that earlier in the night, McGill and Poison Penny picked up a HUGE win over the People’s Front of Berea…

Rick Hall: …Kentucky.

…in a match featuring the #2 and #3 ranked women’s tag teams in MVW.

(REPLAY: #3 The SEC vs. #2 The People’s Front of Berea (KY): Bailey Foster and Kellyanne Morris)

Outside the ring, Tori McGill picks up Foster in a gutwrench suplex maneuver, whirls her around and slams her face first to the mat on the floor.

Inside the ring, Poison Penny delivers her lethal Poison Kiss to Morris before she rolls her up for the academic pinfall.

Delaney Foster, Bailey’s sister jumps on Tori’s back. Tori flips her over her and then hits a pop-up McGill Bomb on the floor.

Thunderbolt adds Christa Carmondy won a three way match to become ranked #4 in the Women’s division.

(REPLAY: #4 Yosemite Samantha vs. ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin vs. Christa Carmondy)

Tess hits the Pizza Cutter on Yosemite Samantha and pins her for the elimination.

Later on, Tori McGill whacks Tess in the back allowing Christa to hit the Mean Girl Crush for the win.

The Champions are momentarily distracted by the SEC’s arrival and Taylor takes advantage, escaping McDermott’s hold and scampering back to her corner to tag Backman back in. Backman runs in – Davisson intercepts – Backman kicks her in the groin and hits a Snap Dragon. Backman reloads for another but McDermott dropkicks her legs out from under her. McDermott runs the ropes and nails Backman with a running single knee strike that sends Backman into the nether regions. Cover…one…two- TAYLOR MAKES THE SAVE! Davisson in and throws Taylor out. McDermott spikes Backman with a DDT. Cover…one…two…Backman just gets a shoulder up. McDermott covers again…one…two…Backman kicks out with authority.

St. Louis is on their feet.  Backman tries to crawl to her corner. McDermott tags Davisson back in.   Davisson climbs up to the top turnbuckle – Shooting Star Press…misses.   Davisson rolls back and forth in the ring. Backman tags in Taylor who runs across the ring and boots McDermott off the apron. Taylor drags Davisson up and goes for a slingshot. She telegraphs the move and Davisson gets clear. Davisson goes right hand…misses. Taylor with a shoulder blocks knocks Davisson into McDermott- who’d just got back up to the ring apron. Taylor throws forearms. Davisson rakes her eyes and lands a big boot to the gut. Facebuster by Davisson…cover…one…two…Taylor kicks out. Davisson drags Taylor up- McDermott again back up and this time in the ring. They whip Taylor to the ropes- double dropkick. Davisson for the win…cover…one…REVERSAL ROLL UP! One…two…McDermott breaks it just in time!

Davisson scoops Taylor up into a Fireman’s Carry. She drops to the mat and swings her foot up, clocking Taylor with her Jake Brake (detonation kick). Taylor arches her back as she falls backwards to the mat. Davisson hooks the legs. Here comes Taylor but McDermott reaches her and goes hurricanrana to take her down. Romanov counts: one…two…THREE!

Corrina calls for the bell and that’s it. Kimber Marshall trundles into the ring.

WINNER AND STILL MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Missouri Valley Fight Club @ 15:15 (edited to 10:15 for television)

Despite the momentary distraction from the SEC in the form of Victoria McGill, Poison Penny, and Christa Carmondy, once again Davisson and McDermott prove themselves to be a cut above the rest of the women’s tag teams in MVW. Both women hoist the women’s tag team belts in the air.

Then they’re joined in the ring by McGill, Poison Penny, and Carmondy.

Thunderbolt Smith: And this could get interesting.

But it doesn’t. The SEC women stare down the champions – who are backed by Backman and Taylor in the event something happens – point at the title belts, and then point to themselves. Davisson and McDermott smile back in return, knowing that their paths will probably intersect sooner than later.

With that, McGill, Poison Penny, and Carmondy turn and exit the ring to head to the back leaving the champions to celebrate a little bit longer.

Thunderbolt tells the viewers to hang tight because the main event is coming up- but he’s interrupted by Hall with breaking news coming from the back.

Cut to:

MORE BACKSTAGE DRAMA
‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler have MVW Men’s Champion J.J. Bittinger surrounded and it’s about to go down.

Thunderbolt Smith: It’s clear who they think is responsible for the attack on ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson. We’ll be back with more after these commercial messages.

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

Thunderbolt wastes no time sending it back to the Southern Boys-J.J. Bittinger conflict backstage.

Bittinger swears to God he did not attack Bill Dickinson. Butler, Miller, and Williams aren’t buying it.   Williams pushes Bittinger. Bittinger pushes back. The Men’s champion tries to the leave but Butler delivers a forearm shiver to the back and Miller and Williams attack. Butler and Williams fling Bittinger headfirst into the wall and Miller sets the dazed champion up for his finisher- The Southern Cross (Outsider’s Edge).   Miller drives Bittinger to the floor. Butler and Williams start laying in the boots just as MVW security finally arrive.

The Southern Boys are escorted away and medical personnel arrive to check on Bittinger.

Thunderbolt Smith: So here’s the situation. The Southern Boys blame J.J. Bittinger for the attack on Dickinson. So the Southern Boys attacked him and they may have very well taken him out of action tonight.

Hall wonders if we will have the main event now that Dickinson is out and who knows how injured Bittinger is. We will find out the answer to that question shortly.   But first, Thunderbolt sends it to Kellie Burkowski who is with the MVW Women’s Tag Team Champions.

MISSOURI VALLEY FIGHT CLUB INTERVIEW
Kellie’s flagged down Davisson and McDermott after their successful title defense here tonight and asked them about the match. Davisson compliments Backman Taylor Powerdrive on their effort and states the MVFC faces challenges every time they step into the ring. McDermott states the MVFC’s main goal right now is to take their abilities to the next level and that means making sacrifices to make that happen.

Kellie asks about the threat the SEC (Victoria McGill and Poison Penny) pose. Davisson and McDermott appear unconcerned. They understand the unique weapons that Poison Penny possesses and know that Tori McGill is learning her wrestling craft at an exponential pace. McDermott says they’ll cross the bridge when they need to- the Missouri Valley Fight Club has faced all comers without any fear or reservation in the past and there’s no reason for that to change.

Cut back to Thunderbolt and Hall- MVW CEO Ray McAvay is in the ring to address the situation.

WHAT DOES McAVAY DO?
Thunderbolt’s question would be what exactly does McAvay do about his main event?

McAvay thanks everyone for being here. He confirms per the medical staff Dickinson is a no go tonight. He adds he’s on his way to see what condition J.J. Bittinger is in.

Ray McAvay: If J.J. can wrestle, then we will have a match. If he can’t-

*“Whiskey Man”- Molly Hatchet*

The crowd pops as the music of the MVW Men’s Champion J.J. Bittinger plays.

A few seconds later, Bittinger gingerly makes his way out as the vocals to the song begin. He’s clearly in pain and shuffles towards the ring.

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

Can he wrestle? Will he wrestle? The champion points to the Men’s Title belt wrapped around his waist as he walks slowly up the aisle.

Whiskey man, don’t you play that hand too long
Whiskey man, don’t you play that hand too long

The Molly Hatchet song abruptly ends and is replaced with…

*SEC Theme Song- ‘Party Wherever We Go’- Robert Randolph and the Family Band*

The crowd begins to boo.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well? We are about to find out if everyone’s suspicions are correct and J.J. Bittinger is in fact joining the SEC.

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

Mr. McMann appears first on stage followed by the cameras of the Corporate Sports(Entertainment) Program Nation or aka…CSPN.

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.

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

Rick Hall: That always unnerves me for some reason.

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

BITTINGER’S DECISION
The SEC climb into the ring with the CSPN camera guy following. They congregate on one side while Bittinger stands alone on the other side. McAvay hangs back in a corner and watches with interest.

J.J. Bittinger: Mr. McMann. Mr. Finebaum. I’m glad you guys came out. I’m ready to make my decision. I’m ready to pledge myself to the SEC.

McMann steps forward. He tells Bittinger he’s happy to hear that.

Mr. McMann: But. Since we made our initial offer to you on December 1st, we’ve identified someone else who we feel would also make an excellent fit with the SEC.

Bittinger just stares back at McMann.

Mr. McMann: As a result, now we have two candidates to become the next wrestler to join the SEC. What to do? What to do.

McMann snaps his fingers and declares he’s got it.

Mr. McMann: You came here to defend your title tonight and join the SEC. What if we brought the other gentleman out we have here and have a match? The winner joins the SEC…

McMann catches himself and turns to Ray McAvay.

Mr. McMann: …and leaves here as the MVW Champion.  If that arrangement is acceptable to you.

McAvay shrugs.

Ray McAvay: I guess this situation would qualify as a special instance. Let it not be said that I’m completely inflexible…

McAvay glares at the SEC Mouthpiece Phil Finebaum as he says this.

Ray McAvay: …so I will sign off on this.

McMann nods at McAvay and hands a piece of paper to ring announcer Kimber Marshall.

*”Bow Down” by I Prevail*

The lights in the arena turn off as the opening to “Bow Down” by I Prevail blares across the speakers.

Thunderbolt Smith: What the-

After a few seconds the name “Darin Zion” flashes across the screen.

McAvay’s jaw drops. He was not expecting this.

Thunderbolt Smith: WHAT?!

Get on your knees and bow down…


High Octane Wrestling’s Darin Zion

Thunderbolt Smith: Zion? Here?

Indeed.  It is HOW’s Darin Zion who walks out wearing his leather hoodie.

Rick Hall: He’s on vacation from HOW, you know.

Yeah, I come alive, I’ll survive, take on anything
So paint a target on my back, let ’em come for me
I don’t fall, don’t quit, don’t ever sleep
‘Cause I’m on another level that you’ll never reach
If you seek forgiveness
You’ll get nothing, you’ll get nothing from me

As Zion makes it half way down the ramp, he flips his hood down behind him and surveys the crowd.

Quick cut to McAvay- he’s completely bemused at the turn of events.

Quick cut to Bittinger- he’s stunned at what’s just happened.

Quick cut to Mr. McMann- there’s not an adequate description available to convey just how much he’s pleased right now.

Zion rushes down the remainder of the entrance ramp and leaps over the top rope landing on the mat kneeling.

You will never know, it’s the price I pay
Look into my eyes, we are not the same
Yeah, this is where you fall apart
Yeah, this is where you break
‘Cause I’m in control, and you’ll know my name
‘Cause I gave my life, gave it everything
Yeah, this is where you fall apart
Yeah, this is where you break
To everybody who doubted
Get on your knees and bow down
Get on your knees and bow down           

Referee Davey Keels sprints down to the ring as McAvay slides out. Kimber Marshall does a rushed introduction of both men.

Darin Zion
AGE: 33 / HT: 6’ 0” WT: 228 / HOME: Chicago, IL
FIN: The Devastation

J.J. ‘The Bear’ Bittinger
AGE: 29 / HT: 6′ 4″ WT: 265 / HOME: Cherokee, NC
FIN: Bear Hug or the Bear Trap

Thunderbolt notes that Zion has won High Octane Wrestling’s ICON title three times, HOW’s LSD title once, and he was a HOW Tag Team champion with Brian Hollywood. Hall adds Zion defeated one Eric Dane earlier this summer in HOW and should have beat him again had Zion not got himself disqualified.

Thunderbolt Smith: I don’t know how Mr. McMann pulled this off or why. But Zion’s a level or two talent wise above just about everyone who’s here.

Rick Hall: Plus. After the Southern Boys’s beatdown, Bittinger is not even close to 100%.

Thunderbolt Smith: Let’s see what happens.

Keels calls for the bell.

Bittinger moves out slowly. He’s clearly in major discomfort. Zion meets him in the middle. He whips Bittinger into the corner hard. Zion walks over and goes to whip Bittinger across the ring again. Bittinger blocks and whips Zion towards the ropes. Zion reverses it and tries to send Bittinger into the ropes. But Bittinger reverses again – Zion finally has enough and kicks Bittinger in the gut.   He steps back and whirls around cracking Bittinger in the jaw with a spinning heel kick he calls The Flash Point. Then Zion drops down and swings his leg up nailing Bittinger again on the button with The Devastation (Detonation Kick). The Men’s champion falls and gets hung up in the ropes. Zion yanks Bittinger off and pulls him away from the ropes. Cover…one…two…THREE! NEW CHAMPION!

Thunderbolt Smith: I don’t believe it.

The crowd doesn’t either. After being shocked into silence throughout the final part of the show, the MVW fans display their displeasure with what’s just happened by throwing garbage into the ring.

Kimber Marshall rolls into the ring to drop the final verdict on the match.

WINNER AND **NEW** MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING MEN’S CHAMPION: Darin Zion @ 2:06

Kimber quickly exits the ring and heads for the back. Zion rips the title belt out of Keels’s hands and puts it around his waist. Then he goes over to the fallen Bittinger.

Thunderbolt calls it a HUGE night for the Sports Entertainment Corporation-

Rick Hall: They’re not done yet!

Zion rolls Bittinger and puts him in the Cobra Clutch, yanking his already broken body up. McMann strolls over to the former champion and explains how they ‘framed’ him for the attack on Dickinson – it was Zion who clubbed Dickinson in the back of the head with a lead pipe – and how the Southern Boys played their part in his grand scheme by injuring Bittinger before the match.

Mr. McMann: Here’s a friendly piece of advice. When the elite faction in Missouri Valley Wrestling gives you the opportunity of a lifetime and invites you to join the team, you should probably say yes – right away.

McMann snaps his fingers and Zion slams Bittinger head first to the mat. Banks, Walstreit, Michaels, and Gibson-Lane stomp away at Bittinger mercilessly. Gibson-Lane and Walstreit pull Bittinger up- Michaels snaps off his King’s Landing finisher and knocks Bittinger out cold.

Again, the SEC starts to stomp the holy hell out of Bittinger. Ray McAvay finally responds. He rolls in the ring and pulls Banks and Walstreit away. Michaels and Gibson-Lane pause – turn to McAvay – and heave him up and over the top rope to the floor. Then they resume what they were doing.

*“White Trash” – Chris Janson*

Major pop. ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler, and…..that’s right, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson sprint down from the stage towards the ring.

McMann shoves Zion to the ropes and tells McGill and Poison Penny to get him out of here- NOW!

McMann, Finebaum, and Guyko exit stage left while the Kings of Old School attack the Southern Boys as the show ends.

Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland Presents:

MVW’s Heartland Pay Per View Show Recap
Monday September 21st, 2020
Taped Last Night at the
Indiana Farmers Coliseum
Indianapolis, IN

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


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 Indianapolis, Indiana where earlier, the Heartland pay per view show was held with a six match card and four title matches.  For the next hour, we will recap what happened here.  Was there any other title changes?  Any other surprises?  We’re going to find out here in just a few mintues.  As always, with me here at the MVW broadcast desk at ringside- ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall . . .

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

Rick Hall: Hey.

Thunderbolt Smith: Once again, we know we will have a brand new women’s champion tonight and it appears that it will be a newcomer- one Bunny LeBrock- will be the one holding the belt.

Rick Hall: At least, she thinks so as evidenced by her arrival to the arena earlier in the evening.

EARLIER-THE ‘NEW QUEEN’ ARRIVES
The show kicks off with a video of Bunny LeBrock arriving at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.  She is regally dressed for the occasion.  Bunny wears a tiara on her head and walks in dressed in an outfit that suggests she’s going to some sort of formal ball instead of a pro wrestling show.


Bunny LeBrock
AGE: 26 / HT: 5’ 11” WT: 156 / HOME: Riverside, CA
FIN: Bunny Hop

Thunderbolt Smith: The presumptive new women’s champion.

Rick Hall: She’s got the glittery gloves on and everything.

Thunderbolt Smith: No one’s heard a word from MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay this week about the women’s title situation.  Is Lisa Barbosa-Stevens going to just hand the title belt over to her?

Rick Hall: I don’t know the answer.  But I do know that the current Women’s champion is here.

Cut to Lisa Barbosa-Stevens making her way on crutches towards the door to the arena.  Lisa’s accompanied tonight by her husband and fellow professional wrestler Scott Stevens, manager Ted Tedow, and the Stevens Dynasty: Bo and George Stevens.

Lisa has the Women’s title belt wrapped around her waist.

Thunderbolt Smith: Yeah.  Lisa doesn’t look to happy.

Rick Hall: Scott Stevens looks . . . intense.

Thunderbolt Smith: Yes he does.  Once upon a time, Scott Stevens did business with the SEC and Mr. McMann in Missouri Valley Wrestling.

Rick Hall: Those days would be gone Thunderbolt after the SEC took out his wife last week and injured her leg.  Mr. McMann would probably be wise to steer clear of Scott Stevens tonight.

Thunderbolt Smith: So, with the big storyline in place for the evening and the two major players now inside the arena, let’s take a look at the first match of the show.

MATCH #1
SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH

‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson/Bobby Ricky Michaels/Marty Gibson-Lane (SEC)
vs.

The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller/’Dangerous’ Dan Williams/’Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell w/Dawn McGill
Dickinson lost the MVW Men’s title two weeks ago and comes into the match in a very surly mood.  Michaels and Gibson-Lane are the SEC’s Hired Guns.  The Southern Boys team up with Charlie Blackwell for this match and all three hit the ring with a major chip on their shoulders.  Dawn McGill leads the Southern Boys to the ring and taunts ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann and the other SEC members at ringside.

Thunderbolt Smith: The junior tag team in the SEC started out well, working together to isolate Charlie Blackwell in the ring.

(REPLAY: MVW’s Heartland PPV)
…Gibson-Lane and Dickinson whip Blackwell into the ropes and hit a double clothesline…

…Dickinson charges into the corner – Blackwell EATS BOOT and staggers against the turnbuckle…

Thunderbolt Smith: But finally, Blackwell makes the hot tag and the Southern Boys finally get going.

…Dickinson takes a flying neckbreaker from Charlie Blackwell.  Blackwell crawls back to his corner and tags in ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams. Bodyslam by Williams – DEATH VALLEY DRIVAH~!  Dan Williams just KILLS Bill Dickinson! Hooks the leg! ONE…TWO…NO!…

Thunderbolt Smith: And in the end, the Southern Boys would come out on top.

…Standing leg lariat by Charlie Blackwell on Michaels.  Blackwell waits for Michaels to stand – jumps onto his shoulder – Frankensteiner to Michaels.  He hits the mat hard and is loopy as a result. Blackwell to the mat.  He locks in the Katahajme.  Dickinson and Gibson-Lane start to climb into the ring.  Dawn McGill shoots across the ring and whaps both men with a Singapore cane and they end up hung up in the ropes while Bobby Ricky Michaels is forced to tap out!

WINNER: The Southern Boys @ 14:41

Thunderbolt Smith: Nice win for the Southern Boys.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, it’s a BIG win for the Southern Boys for this reason.  They needed a positive result- even if it came against the SEC’s B-tag team.  Williams and Miller worked well with Charlie Blackwell. I thought Dickinson, Michaels, and Gibson-Lane actually worked together well for the SEC team.  Dawn McGill made a huge save at the end when Williams and Miller trying to catch their breath to stop Dickinson and Gibson-Lane from breaking Blackwell’s submission hold.  The Southern Boys needed this win big time and they got it tonight.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right.  On to match number two of the night.  The big grudge match between former Women’s Heartland champions ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin and Victoria McGill.

Rick Hall: These two ladies have been at each other’s throat for months now.  Tori defeated Tess last month to take the Women’s Heartland belt from her.  Tess just cost Tori the title last week.   This has been going on long enough.  Who would finally emerge the winner of this war and more importantly, would it be the end?

MATCH #2
GRUDGE MATCH

‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin (The SEC)
vs.

Victoria McGill w/Dawn McGill

(REPLAY: MVW’S Heartland PPV)

…McGill hits a HARD spinning kick to the jaw.  She runs the ropes and runs into a Big Back Body drop from Martin…

Thunderbolt Smith: Back and forth these two went.

…Martin crushes McGill with a running senton. There’s a two count on the pin. McGill counters a sleeper with a jaw breaker and is able to get free! Victoria McGill hits a bulldog off the ropes…

… McGill just SPIKES Tessa Martin down with a High Angle DDT by McGill.  Pinfall attempt: ONE…TWO…NO!  McGill misses a big legdrop after stalling too long and then walks right into a high dropkick from Tessa…

Thunderbolt Smith: And then things got a little interesting.

…fallaway slam by Victoria McGill.  Cover – Tess rakes the eyes and rolls away.  Christa Carmondy comes running down the aisle with a chair! Martin goes to whip McGill into the ropes – Carmondy jumps onto the apron with the chair – BUT DAWN McGILL HOLDS ON TO TORI.  The McGills in the ring – double dropkick to Martin sends her into Carmondy and the chair! Tessa staggers back into a roll up! 1…2…3!…

Thunderbolt Smith: And the SEC’s interference ends up costing them the match.  But wait, there’s more.

…Dawn McGill goes toe-to-toe exchanging punches with Tessa Martin – Victoria McGill runs forward and sends Carmondy out of the ring with a clothesline.  The ring is cleared of the SEC as the McGills drive off Martin and Carmondy!…

WINNER: Victoria McGill @ 21:15

Thunderbolt Smith: What a match.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, these two went at each other hard for over ten minutes before the SEC’s outside interference backfired on them and gave the victory to Victoria McGill.  I sense that Mr. McMann will not be happy with the role Dawn McGill played in stopping the SEC’s double team on Tori and will renew his push to modify the ‘agreement’ between Dawn, McMann, and ex-husband Jackson C. Horne because as of now, the SEC can’t lift a finger against her.

Thunderbolt Smith: Shenanigans aside, very good win for Victoria McGill on a big stage.

Rick Hall: Yes.  This is Tori’s biggest win to date.  Can she parlay this victory and move into Women’s title contention?  That’s the next step in her career.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right, two matches down, four matches to go.  Next, we will review the two tag team title matches here on Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv.  We’ll be right back.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: And we are back on Wrestling Night in the Heartland, recapping the Heartland pay per view show here in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Next up, we went backstage where ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann is trying to see MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay inside his office.

McMANN COMES CALLING
McMann is at the door but is blocked from going inside by security.


‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann

Finally, the door opens.


MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay

McAvay comes out to find out just what the hell he wants.  But first Scott, Bo, and George Stevens exit the office.

There’s an awkward staredown between Scott Stevens and Mr. McMann.  McMann tells him he doesn’t want any trouble and besides, what happened last week with his wife Lisa Barbosa-Stevens was ‘just about business.’

The Stevens exit without any further escalation.  Then McAvay deals with McMann.

McMann is irate over the ‘interference’ of Dawn McGill in the early matches.  He believes it’s not fair that neither he nor the SEC are allowed to lay a hand on or go near her but yet she’s allowed to ‘take liberties’ with the SEC talent.  McMann wants McAvay to make McGill change the agreement.

McAvay just shakes his head and tells McMann he made his bed and now he gets to sleep in it.  He then excuses himself but he’s really busy at the moment with a ‘big deal’ and can’t talk anymore.  McAvay then turns and goes inside.  The door shuts quickly before the camera can get a peek at what’s, or who’s, inside.

Rick Hall: Foreshadowing.

Thunderbolt Smith: Yeah.  Let’s leave it at that.

Rick Hall: As for McMann, again, he and Horne willingly signed the agreement thinking that they were going to coerce Dawn into working with the SEC again and it backfired spectacularly.  At least McAvay is giving them a little leeway with this whole Bunny LeBrock working with- not officially part of- the SEC when it’s obvious to anyone with the IQ of a brick that LeBrock is de facto operating as a part of the SEC.

Thunderbolt Smith: Okay.  Well, I can report that the next match does not feature Dawn McGill in any shape or form.

Rick Hall: Which should make Mr. McMann happy.

MATCH #3
WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE

Missouri Valley Fight Club: Carrieanne McDermott and Harley Davisson ©
vs.

Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose
Geena and Eliza came in heavy underdogs against the three time tag team champions The Missouri Valley Fight Club.  Geena and Eliza needed a lot of things to fall in their favor if they were to pull off one of the biggest upsets in Missouri Valley Wrestling history.  Davisson and McDermott looked to dispatch the young and relatively inexperienced tag team and continue their good run.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well, could Geena and Eliza do it?

(REPLAY: Heartland PPV)

…Rose takes a NICE hurrancarana from Carrieanne McDermott…   She tags Harley Davisson. McDermott uses a basement dropkick to the knee – Davisson comes off the top rope with a nasty elbow and crumples Rose up like an empty pop can…

Thunderbolt Smith: Davisson and McDermott jumped on Geena and Eliza early, often, and without a whole lot of resistance.  It really was just a matter of time and the MVFC didn’t prolong their agony.

…Davisson plants Rose with a standing spinebuster.  She moves in for the kill and finishes her off with the Kick Stand!!! That shook the ring.  Cover.  1….2….3!!…

==

WINNER AND STILL MVW WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Missouri Valley Fight Club @ 4:30

Thunderbolt Smith: And that was that.  The Missouri Valley Fight Club with an easy win over the tag team of Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose.

Rick Hall: Geena and Eliza got a wrestling lesson from the best tag team in Missouri Valley Wrestling tonight.  The MVFC was ruthlessly efficient in the match and they did not give their opponents any opening or any opportunity to gain any confidence in the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: The more interesting thing took place after the match.

ANGELS COME CALLING
As Davisson and McDermott celebrated in the ring, six time Women’s Tag Team champions Angels of Death (Angel Scott and Angel Casey) came down to ringside for a stare-off with the current champions.

Angels of Death
Angel Casey “Ms. Lethal Weapon”
AGE: 36 / HT: 5’ 6” WT: 115 / HOME: Portales, NM
FIN: Angel Death Drop
Angel Scott “The Terminatrix”
AGE: 37 / HT: 5’ 11” WT: 167 / HOME: Morgantown, WV
FIN: Angel Death Drop

Would there be a post-match altercation?

Nope.  The AoD just nodded and turned to head to the back.

Rick Hall: It’s just the Angels of Death making sure that the Missouri Valley Fight Club know that they are back and coming for the tag belts.

Thunderbolt Smith: Again, the AoD look like they are in the best condition they’ve been in some time and ready to rumble with Davisson and McDermott.

Rick Hall: My prediction is the MVFC will meet the Angels at the end of the year pay per view show Night of Champions for the title.

Thunderbolt Smith: Duly noted.  Let’s move on to the fourth match of the evening, the Men’s Tag Team title match between The SEC and the People’s Front of Berea.

Rick Hall: The SEC won the tag titles from the PFB at MVW’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland pay per view show almost three months ago.  Dayle Joe Foster of the PFB was assaulted by a masked man in his dressing room- later to be revealed as former MVW Men’s Champion Darin Matthews from the SEC- and manager Zeb Morris was forced to wrestle in his place.  Dayle Joe hasn’t forgotten what happened that night and has been waiting for this moment for almost three months.  On paper Banks and Walstreit are the better team.  But Foster will be motivated and then some to try to do to the SEC what the SEC did to them- defeat them for the tag belts.

MATCH #4
MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE

Sports Entertainment Corporation: P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit w/’The King of Greed’ Gordon Guyko ©
vs.

People’s Front of Berea: Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker w/Zeb Morris
Banks and Walstreit have fended off the challenges from the Southern Boys over the past few weeks and are now face to face with a tag team that still hasn’t forgot what went down at Wrestling Night in America.  Banks and Walstreit are the better team and, again, they’ve had little trouble keeping their hated rivals the Southern Boys at bay.  But the PFB have motivation on their side.

Thunderbolt Smith: Foster and Walker made their intentions clear in the early going.

(REPLAY: Heartland PPV)

…Banks takes a headbutt from Dayle Joe Foster.  He’s sent to the ropes – Foster back body drops him to the mat and that fires up the crowd.  Foster hooks the leg – Banks kicks out at the two count…

…Foster and Walker whip Banks into the ropes and hit a double back elbow.   Foster covers – Banks again kicks out at two.

Thunderbolt Smith: The crowd got behind Foster and Walker and cheered every move.

…Walker counters a backdrop attempt by Walstreit with a boot to the face and the crowd pops big time.  Walker off the ropes – clothesline sends Walstreit to the mat!   Walker pulls Walstreit up and whips into the ropes – LOU THESZ PRESS!  Walstreit covers up as Walker rains down lefts and rights.  He tags Dayle Joe Foster back in.  Foster pulls Walstreit up and slams him hard to the mat.   A second bodyslam by Foster…

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, the SEC couldn’t get out of second gear tonight.

…Flying shoulder tackle by Foster sends Banks CRASHING to the mat.  Then Banks found himself upside down when Foster hit a delayed vertical suplex.  Walstreit came in – Foster ducks a punch and sends Walstreit through the ropes to the outside.  He looks down at Banks and signals for the Moonshiner…

Thunderbolt Smith: It looked like the People’s Front of Berea would win back the tag belts.  But then…

…the SEC’s Hired Guns Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane hit the ring and clobber Foster…

Thunderbolt Smith: …the SEC goes full SEC.

…Referee Ron Martin immediately calls for the bell and disqualifies Banks and Walstreit…

Thunderbolt Smith: …and throws out the match.

WINNER VIA DQ: The People’s Front of Berea @ 11:29- The Sports Entertainment Corporation retain the Men’s Tag Team title

Thunderbolt Smith: That decision did not go down well with the fans.  They booed the SEC unmercilessly.  Then it got worst when ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson joined the other four and just laid into the PFB.  It looked really bad for the People’s Front of Berea until…

…HUGE CROWD POP.  Dawn McGill races down to the ring with her Singapore cane.  But the crowd explodes when Scott Stevens, Bo Stevens, George Stevens, and Ted Tebow come out as well to make the save…

Rick Hall: Scott Stevens was still pissed off about the attack on his wife.  Tebow, Bo and George were still pissed off at the sneak attack on them.  So they came out to vent a little bit.

…Scott hits the ring.  Toxic Sting to Banks.  Toxic Sting to Walstreit. Toxic Sting to Dickinson…

…Bo and George attack Michaels and Gibson-Lane.  All four men go tumbling over the top rope to the floor where the brawl continues…

…Dawn McGill grabs Mr. McMann and forces him into the ring.  Scott Stevens pulls him to his feet and shares a quick word with the Sports Entertainment Genius.

Scott Stevens: It’s just business.

Boot to the gut.  TOXIC STING!  McMann whips back after taking the move and lands in a heap against the corner turnbuckle…

Thunderbolt Smith: So, not only does Scott Stevens get a little satisfaction from the SEC for what happened to his wife last week, the People’s Front of Berea get their pound of flesh from the SEC but unfortunately they don’t get the Men’s Tag belts back.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, this was the best match Foster and Walker have wrestled yet.  They really took control of the match early and did not let the SEC get settled in at any point of the match.  But again, when the going gets tough, Mr. McMann and the SEC’s Director of Security Jackson C. Horne send the troops in to protect the tag team title belts.

Thunderbolt Smith: Of course, at some point Ray McAvay may drop a stipulation stating that a DQ win will still transfer the title into a title match if that’s what it takes to get a clean winner.

Rick Hall: Yep.  Ray’s done it before and I have no doubt he’ll do it again if need be.

Thunderbolt Smith: Two title matches down.  Two more to go.  We will be right back with the Men’s and Women’s title matches in just a few minutes to Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: And we are down to the last two matches in the show.  Last week on Wrestling Night in the Heartland, Lisa Barbosa-Stevens was scheduled to face C.J. Lewis in the main event.  But the SEC’s Christa Carmondy, Tessa Martin, and Svetlana Kovaleski had other ideas…

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

…Carmondy, Tessa, and Kovaleski attack Barbosa-Stevens in the corner.  The Women’s champion is quickly overwhelmed by the sheer numbers.  Kovaleski loads Lisa up on her back – sets – and launches herself backwards and crunches Barbosa-Stevens to the mat with a Gory Special.  Christa plants Lisa with the Mean Girl Crush.  Tess hits the Pizza Cutter.  The Women’s Champion is done.

Outside the ring, Lisa’s manager Ted Tebow and the Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens) have been taken out by the men of the SEC (Dickinson, Gibson-Lane, Michaels, Walstreit, and Banks)  All five SEC men stomp away at Tebow and both Stevens.

A chair is tossed into the ring.  Tessa puts Lisa’s leg in between while Kovaleski climbs to the corner turnbuckle.  Kovaleski leaps and connects.  Lisa holds her leg and thrashes back and forth.

Debris begins to fly into the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: So with Lisa Barbosa-Stevens injured and unable to defend her title tonight, Bunny LeBrock waited in the ring in her formal gown with tiara for the Women’s Title belt to be presented to her.

THE CORONATION
LeBrock gets on the microphone and demands Lisa Barbosa-Stevens ‘hobble’ to the ring and hand her the MVW Women’s Title belt.


Lisa Barbosa-Stevens

Seconds later, “What Have You Done Now?” by Within Temptation blares over the loudspeakers and the crowd rises to their feet when Barbosa-Stevens, flanked by her husband Scott Stevens with Ted Tebow and the Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens) trailing her, makes her way slowly to the ring.

Then MVW Owner/CEO Ray McAvay comes out.  He’s accompanied by his wife, one half of West Texas Adult Entertainment Legends Dark and Stormy, Stacee Perry (Dark).  McAvay climbs into the ring.  LeBrock impatiently waits in one corner and motions to Barbosa-Stevens to give her the belt.  Barbosa-Stevens ignores her in the opposite corner.

‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann and the SEC also come out to the stage to watch from afar.

McAvay takes the microphone.

Ray McAvay: Before we do this, I have to say to Mr. McMann that I learned a lot from what the SEC did back in January when you slipped in Darin Matthews through the back door after you took Bill Dickinson out and he walked out with the Men’s Title.

LeBrock shouts at McAvay to give her ‘her’ belt.

Ray McAvay: Just one second Bunny.  You’ll get it in a few seconds.

McAvay goes over to Barbosa-Stevens.  The Women’s Champion reluctantly . . . very reluctantly . . . hands him the title belt.  McAvay then starts to head over to a beaming and expectant Bunny LeBrock- except he stops in the middle of the ring.

Ray McAvay: Well, you can have this belt if you can pass the test.

He snaps his finger and the lights go out in the arena.

A few seconds later, he snaps his finger again.  The lights come back on.  Barbosa-Stevens and her entourage are nowhere to be found.

But someone else is- and she’s ready to wrestle.


“The Iron Butterfly”
Graysie Parker
AGE: 24 / HT: 5’ 3” WT: 150 / HOME: New Orleans, LA
FIN: Graysie Driver (Pumphandle Stuff Piledriver)

Parker glares across the ring at LeBrock like the predator sizing up her prey.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt Smith: The arena popped for the appearance of Graysie Parker.

Rick Hall: Bunny LeBrock and Mr. McMann?  Not so much.

Staring back at the Iron Butterfly who’s warmed up and ready to rumble, LeBrock’s jaw has dropped.

Quick cut to McMann.  His jaw has dropped as well.

Quick cut to McAvay staring out at McMann with the rare satisfied smirk on his face.

Rick Hall: Yeah, LeBrock didn’t come to the arena or the ring dressed for a match and now she was going to have to wrestle the Suplex Siren and protegee of wrestling legend Eric Dane, Graysie Parker for the title.

Thunderbolt Smith: Just a side note, Parker also trained under Lindsay Troy as well.

Rick Hall: Right.

Thunderbolt Smith: So let’s get to the match.  How would Graysie Parker fare in her first MVW match?

MAIN EVENT #1
WOMEN’S TITLE
Bunny LeBrock vs. Graysie Parker

(REPLAY- Heartland PPV)

…Bunny gets slammed down hard by Parker and she winces in pain.   Parker yanks her back up – another punishing bodyslam by Parker.  She covers for a quick two count…

Thunderbolt Smith: Parker came out spitting nails and simply overwhelmed the unprepared LeBrock with her sheer power.

…Graysie nails Bunny with a Butterfly driver (Butterfly Suplex lift into sit-out Piledriver)…

…Bunny’s lifted up and then driven hard to the mat with a Graysie Bomb (Vader Bomb)…

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Bunny didn’t know what hit her.

…Graysie tries to drive LeBrock right through the mat with a Butterfly Bomb (Butterfly Sitout Powerbomb)…

Thunderbolt Smith: Nope.  She had no answer for anything Parker threw at her.

…Graysie then hits three rolling gutwrench suplexes in succession- a move she calls the Los Tres Muhares…

Thunderbolt Smith: Finally, after showing off her repertoire to the very impressed MVW fans, Parker finished LeBrock off.

…Graysie has LeBrock set up for a pumphandle move.  She lifts and spikes Bunny to the mat with what she calls the Graysie Driver (Pumphandle Stuff Piledriver) and LeBrock is in la-la land.  Parker with the easy cover.  1…2…3.  New Champion…

WINNER AND NEW MVW WOMEN’S CHAMPION: Graysie Parker @ 3:55

Thunderbolt Smith: And what was already a disastrous night for the Sports Entertainment Corporation got even worse.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Graysie’s bio states she is ‘all power, all the time’ and man they weren’t kidding.  She tossed Bunny LeBrock all over the ring as if she was a ragdoll.  Just, wow.

Thunderbolt Smith: LeBrock didn’t help herself by showing up in an evening gown and expecting the belt to just be handed to her.

Rick Hall: I don’t think it would have made a difference.  Graysie wrestled tonight as if she had something to prove and man oh man did she do so.  This was a very impressive debut and she is now the new Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion.

Thunderbolt Smith: Now we’re down to the final match of the night.  Could the Men’s Title match top the previous match?

Rick Hall: Probably not.  J.J. Bittinger and Average Joe aren’t at odds with each other to the extent of the SEC and the Southern Boys are.  But both men want to be the MVW Men’s champion so they’re going to have a go at it.

Thunderbolt Smith: This will be a battle between two men not known for being overly flashy inside the ring but will give everything they’ve got to their opponent.  Let’s find out what happens.

MAIN EVENT #2
MEN’S TITLE

J.J. Bittinger ©
vs.

Average Joe
J.J. finally knocked off ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson to regain the belt for the second time two weeks ago and is at the top of his game right now.  It’s going to take one hell of an effort for Average Joe to knock him off his throne.  Average Joe gave Darin Matthews and Bill Dickinson big time problems in two title challenges and won’t be overawed by the occasion.

Thunderbolt Smith: No surprises here.  Both men went at it.

(REPLAY: Heartland PPV)

…J.J. Bittinger lifts and gives Average Joe a Belly to belly suplex.   BIG clothesline follows sends Average Joe back to the deck.  Bittinger goes for a splash – Average Joe puts the knees up.  Cover.  Bittinger kicks out at two.  Average Joe lifts J.J. up for a suplex – Bittinger rolls out the back…

Thunderbolt Smith: J.J. would get the edge but Average Joe was stubborn and wouldn’t give up.

…Bittinger scores with a big spinebuster. Pinfall attempt: ONE…TWO…NO!  Bittinger presses the advantage – Average Joe blocks a kick.  Average Joe drives a HARD forearm into the chest of Bittinger. Bittinger kicks Average Joe in the gut to reverse the momentum.  J.J. sends him for the ride to the ropes – back body drop – no – Average Joe goes for a kick but Bittinger sees it coming and evades.  He floors Average Joe.  Cover.  Average Joe kicks out…

==

Thunderbolt Smith: Back and forth and back and forth.  Which man would be the be the Men’s champion?

…Average Joe down.  Bittinger tries to slap on the Bear Trap – Average Joe slips away.   Bittinger charges – Average Joe scoops – AVERAGE SLAM- no – Bittinger out the back door.  Drop toehold – BEAR TRAP!  Average Joe tries to escape but he’s stuck in no man’s land.   Finally he taps out.

WINNER AND STILL MVW MEN’S CHAMPION: J.J. Bittinger @ 16:41

After the match, Bittinger offers a handshake to Average Joe.  Joe accepts it!

Thunderbolt Smith: J.J. Bittinger outlasts Average Joe in a hard fought match.

Rick Hall: No surprises here.  Average Joe is not the most talented wrestler in the company by any stretch of the imagination but he’s one of the most determined men you’ll ever find inside a wrestling ring.  J.J.’s got that same determination and he’s more than willing to grind out a win if need be- which is what Bittinger had to do against Average Joe.

Thunderbolt Smith: So let’s run down the results from Heartland one more time.

MATCH #1-The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, Charlie Blackwell defeated ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, Bobby Ricky Michaels, Marty Gibson-Lane

MATCH #2-Victoria McGill defeated ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin

MATCH #3-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH-Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott © retained over Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose

MATCH #4-MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH-The People’s Front of Berea: Dayle Joe Foster and Ezekiel Walker defeated The Sports Entertainment Corporation: P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit © via DQ- the SEC retain the title.

MAIN EVENT #1-WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH: Debuting Graysie Parker defeated Bunny LeBrock to become the new MVW Women’s Champion

MAIN EVENT #2-MEN’S TITLE MATCH: J.J. Bittinger © retained over Average Joe

Thunderbolt Smith: Any last thoughts on tonight’s show?

Rick Hall: Obviously, Graysie Parker is the big story coming out of tonight’s show.  But the other storylines from the night include the Southern Boys getting a nice win over Dickinson, Michaels, and Gibson-Lane of the SEC tonight, Tori McGill’s signature win over the ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin, The Missouri Valley Fight Club’s dominant win over Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose,  The People’s Front of Berea’s gaining a measure of revenge on the SEC for Wrestling Night in America, and J.J. Bittinger slogging out a win over Average Joe to hold on to the MVW Men’s title.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right, that’s all we’ve got for tonight.  We have reruns of past shows for the next couple of weeks and will return Monday October 12th with the next edition of Wrestling Night in the Heartland.  For Rick Hall, I’m Thunderbolt Smith.  We’ll see you then right here on HOTv.
