Missouri Valley Wrestling rolled through the heart of Illinois over the weekend with a pair of house shows that set up the card for MVWA 68.
However, with ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann in the house, you knew he would try to shake things up as only he can. And he did. McMann tried to do an end around Dawn McGill by calling for a vote of the new MVW Supporters Trust to elect a CEO- exposing a couple of details that the Trust had neglected to address.
Since the departure of Corrina Romanov and Kevin G. Briscoe, McGill operated as the default ad hoc CEO of Missouri Valley Wrestling and focused her efforts on reaching the Trust’s goal of 10,000 members and getting the company to the end of the year. McMann’s gambit threw the proverbial monkey wrench into the equation.
How would McGill respond? Would there be an actual vote? And how would a vote take place?
Last week also saw the unexpected return of MVW Original Christa Carmondy, the younger sister of the original owner of Missouri Valley Wrestling Jason Carmondy. Carmondy signed on as the lead wrestler at Jill Berg Enterprises
MVW House Show
Mount Vernon, IL
Friday December 11th, 2015
Colleen America w/Kirstie Lowe of Americana defeated Gwen Varney
-America and Varney traded some trash talk and got the crowd into the match early. Lowe sat out due to an ankle sprain she picked up last weekend.
C.J. Lewis defeated Andrea Allen
-MVW’s former Hooter’s waitress continued to work her way back into top form taking on Allen.
Kari Ferguson defeated Kirsten Canfield
-Ferguson’s rebuild from the Sports Entertainment Consortium debacle progressed with a solid win over the Wichita State sophomore working part time on weekends for MVW.
Adrienne Banks defeated ‘By the Book’ Tiana Walker
-in a rematch from their match in Bowling Green, Kentucky last Saturday, Banks changed things up this week and didn’t put up with Walker’s theatrics. When Walker tried to pause the match to consult with Referee Lou Dawson on a point of order in the MVW rulebook, Banks simply rolled her up from behind and came away with a surprise win.
Post match, Walker berated Dawson over a ‘breach in the rules’ all the way to the back.
Christa Carmondy defeated ‘The Original’ Shanna Barrett w/Molly Hatchett
-still knocking off the ring rust, Christa picked up her first MVW singles victory in three years.
After the match, ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann came out with Bo Stevens, Timothy Allen Tebow, and the Lingerie Girls Brandi and Wendi Bayless to make his play. McMann said that every organization needs a strong figure at the top to provide leadership and most of all, a vision. McMann said he was that man and since he and all of the SEC had joined the MVW Supporter’s Trust, he believed that he had every right to call for an election of officers.
The Kentucky Deerhunters (Kellyanne Morris/Bailey Foster) defeat Lingerie Girls Brandi and Wendi Bayless w/the SEC (Bo Stevens/Timothy Allen Tebow) via DQ
-Once again, like their match last week in Bowling Green, outside interference would turn the match’s fortune. Unfortunately for the SEC, this time fortune pointed in the wrong direction. Stevens and Tebow again interjected themselves into the match. This time, referee Davey Keels is in the right place and immediately disqualified the Lingerie Girls.
Post match, the Bayless twins give Morris a Total Makeover. Brandi went high with a spinning kick; Wendi low with a spinning leg sweep and sent Morris face first to the mat. Then they set up to do the same with Foster. However, the MVW Tag Team champions ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin and ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas ran down to the ring to make the save.
McMann gets on the mic again and once again makes the case that MVW needs a strong leader at the top to make important decisions such as…counteracting the referee’s inherent bias against the SEC and overturning the match result. This finally brings out Dawn McGill who’s not in the mood to deal with McMann. McGill tells McMann if he wants a decisive decision made, she just made one by not only upholding Referee Keels ruling on the match- she’s set up an elimination match tomorrow night in Champaign, IL with the one getting a shot at the tag team belts.
McMann pointed a finger at McGill and told her that she’d ‘better make the right decision.’ McGill took umbrage to the threatening tone in McMann’s voice and started towards the ring. Then out of nowhere, ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan ran out and belted the six month pregnant McGill from behind and sent her sprawling to the floor. This immediately brought out McGill’s husband and High Octane Wrestling wrestler Ray McAvay and his manager ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido along with wrestlers from Jill Berg Enterprises (Christa Carmondy, Daisy Cutter-Bomb, and Kirsten Canfield).
Thankfully, McGill was uninjured in the attack but angrily responded back to McMann that the Lingerie Girls would face the Kentucky Deerhunters one final time tomorrow night in Champaign in a steel cage match. McGill stated that a steel cage match would discourage any outside interference in the match.
MVW Champion Penny/Code Pink defeated Missouri Valley Fight Club (Carrieanne McDermott/Harley Davisson)
-after the buzz from the unexpected return of Sheline Carrigan to MVW died down, Missouri Valley Wrestling champion Penny (formerly Lady Halitosis) came to the ring with Code Pink and the rest of her Green World Order teammates for their tag match against the MVFC. Peta from PETA swiped the microphone from ring announcer Kimber Marshall and railed against eating meat. PeaceNic took her turn and spoke out against military action in Syria. While Emily S. List blasted the Republicans for being Republicans, the MVFC came out and asked if this was a wrestling match or a political rally? Then they attacked the Green World Order and the match was on.
Penny survived an early spirited attack from McDermott and managed to get the hot tag to Code Pink. Davisson also tagged in and ran wild and just beat the crap out of Code Pink. The match soon broke down into all four women in the ring. The GWO tried to get involved but McDermott and then Davisson drove them back over the ropes. Code Pink ended up locked in McDermott’s Indian Death Lock but Penny distracted the ref and Peta from PETA and Emily S. List attacked McDermott allowing Code Pink to survive. This led to a good back and forth down the stretch. The crowd was really into the match. Code Pink fired a Glitter Bomb into Davisson’s face, blinding her. Then Penny hit her Imploding Senton Bomb and that was all.
Post match, ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan and the rest of the SEC (The Bayless twins, Bo Stevens, and Timothy Allen Tebow) rolled out to the ring and attacked the GWO. Carrigan chased Penny from the ring and then gave Harley Davisson a Canadian Destroyer…just because.
MAIN EVENT/TELEVISION TITLE MATCH ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris © defeated ‘International High Flying Flight Attendant’ Airline Amie via DQ
-The SEC would also interfere in this match as well. Carrigan, who Iris defeated for the TV title back in October, charged to the ring and took down Iris with a forearm shot to the back. She hit the Canadian Destroyer on Airline Amie. Stevens and Tebow then rolled her out of the ring.
The Bayless twins then pulled Iris up and gave her a Total Makeover. Brandi went high with a spinning kick; Wendi low with a spinning leg sweep and sent Iris face first to the mat. Then Carrigan drug Iris back up again and hit her with a Canadian Destroyer. The SEC posed above the fallen Television champion as the show came to an end.
MVW House Show
Saturday December 12th, 2015
With that in mind, Dawn McGill came to the ring to start the show. Her first announcement was that MVWA 68 would be pushed back one week to January 2nd. Then she discussed the series of events that lead Missouri Valley Wrestling to this juncture. McGill talked about the chaotic couple weeks before the sale of MVW to the Supporter’s Trust. Those who’d been with MVW in its original incarnation recalled the problems that plagued the company and finally brought it down. McGill said that everyone had worked so hard to prevent that from happening a second time and yet, MVW still found itself on the verge of financial collapse not one year after it re-opened.
McGill, entering her seventh month of pregnancy, credited Jill Berg with providing the company with a life line. Now, they had to stay the course and stick with the plan. The Supporter’s Trust cracked the six thousand person mark last week. She was hoping that with another influx of new members after the weekend that the number would exceed seven thousand. McGill reassured everyone that things were stabilizing but stunts like the one ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann tried to pull the night before in Mount Vernon only work to undermine the hard work being done to ensure MVW’s survival.
McGill then announced that a vote would indeed take place to determine who would lead Missouri Valley Wrestling forward in 2016- hence the need to push back MVWA 68 one week. Details to follow.
Hannah Lancer defeated Desiree Davis
-nice, tidy opener to kick off the show. Lancer controlled Davis and broke out a cross armbreaker to nearly get an early submission. Davis battled back and nearly sent Lancer over the top rope with a dropkick. Lancer regained the momentum and scored a pinfall following a wicked belly to belly suplex to win the match.
The Mercenaries (Svetlana Kovaleski/Regina McGill) defeat Divorcees with Dangerous Intentions (Stacey Martin/Betsy Parker)
-Martin and Parker had some success early on but get sloppy allowing the Mercenaries to seize the impetus. McGill battled as she always does. Kovaleski provided the power and the finisher with a top rope moonsault to close out the match.
Spiders and Snakes (Anna Conda/Natasha ‘The Black Widow’ Littell) defeat Gwen and Blake Varney
-quick and painless. Littell softened the Varney Sisters up. Conda squeezed the final life out of them with the Constrictor.
Ninja Kitty defeated Cheryl Parkman
-Ninja Kitty’s first appearance since losing the Heartland title to Carrieanne McDermott. She received a warm ovation from the crowd and then set forth to pay them back. She frustrated Parkman with her quickness early on and snapped off a few springboard moves. Ninja Kitty hit a hurricanrana and then finshed her off with The Pounce.
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan defeated Elaine Brazier/Andrea Allen- Handicap Match
-Carrigan answered the question about whether her exile to the Independent Western Wrestling World helped sharpen her focus by destroying not one but two opponents in a handicap match.
Boos filled the arena when ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann walked to the ring to join Carrigan with the Sports Entertainment Consortium (The Bayless Twins/Bo Stevens/Timothy Allen Tebow) to answer McGill’s earlier remarks. McMann said that McGill is ‘making excuses’ with all the frequency of the way she apparently ‘makes babies.’ He further goes on to infer that while Dawn has done a good job in working with MVW’s ‘inferior’ talent she can’t handle the responsibility that running the entire company demands.
McMann asserted that the SEC has the best talent…Sheline Carrigan…The Bayless Twins…and that makes him the perfect candidate to be the mouthpiece, the visionary, the face of Missouri Valley Wrestling.
Then Christa Carmondy, MVW original, walked to the ring. Carmondy talked about how her family built Missouri Valley Wrestling from the ground up. Her brother Jason and her mother didn’t necessarily agree on how to run the company; but in the end, Jason’s downfall was paying out big money on big talent when he probably should have tried to build by laying a foundation. Christa called Mr. McMann an opportunist, not unlike another businessman who happens to be running for president, and put her full support behind Dawn McGill.
CAGE MATCH: Lingerie Girls Brandi and Wendi Bayless w/the SEC defeated The Kentucky Deerhunters (Kellyanne Morris/Bailey Foster)
-the winner would earn themselves a tag team title shot at MVWA 68. The Bayless twins came out and flat out wrestled their best match together ever. Morris came out rough and ready to mix it up with Brandi Bayless. She threw right hand bombs at Brandi who managed to cope with the onslaught and unleashed a powerbomb of her own. Then Morris and Foster have a terrible miscue that results in a tag that was overruled by referee Ron Martin because Foster wasn’t where she was supposed to be and Brandi and Wendi hit the Total Makeover on Morris. Brandi rolled up Morris and that was that.
The SEC celebrated the Bayless twins huge win outside the ring.
Kathryn Randall Collins defeated ‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot and Code Pink of the Green World Order
-MVW Champion Penny demanded that Code Pink be added to the match in an attempt to keep KRC from winning. Instead, Code Pink inadvertently took out Harlot with a Glitter Bomb and KRC locked in the Gogoplata to book her match with Penny for the MVW title.
Post match, Penny, Peta from PETA, Emily S. List, and Code Pink swarm all over KRC with the intent of knocking her out of the MVWA 68 match. But KRC gets help when the Missouri Valley Fight Club (Carrieanne McDermott/Harley Davisson) rush down to ringside and send the GWO packing.
MAIN EVENT/HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH: Carrieanne McDermott © w/Harley Davisson of the MVFC defeat Daisy Cutter-Bomb of Jill Berg Enterprises
-McDermott armdragged right out of the chute. Daisy got under the Heartland champion and picked her up for an airplane spin. DCB then dumped her to the mat and covered for two. Both women use power moves and there was a few reversals. Daisy hit a spinebuster for another two count. McDermott maneuvered DCB into a double leglock. They do near misses coming off the ropes but Daisy gets caught daydreaming for a split second and nearly had her head taken off with a wicked clothesline. McDermott also showed off a little lucha action with a somersault plancha. Daisy then is run into the ring post and McDermott followed up with a Ligerbomb for 2. Daisy rallied and tried to go for a Daisy Cutter Powerbomb but McDermott counters into a rana off the top rope. McDermott hit the Glasgow Handshake and that proved to be enough to win the match.
Dawn McGill made her way back to the ring to announce the card for MVWA 68 in three weeks. MVWA 68 will be a ‘night of champions’ McGill declared. All four titles will be on the line.

The second thing McGill announced that beginning Monday December 14th, a website would open up for all members of the Missouri Valley Wrestling Supporter’s Trust to nominate potential people to populate a new three person board of directors to lead MVW going forward in 2016. The board would then appoint a Chief Executive Officer to run the day to day affairs of Missouri Valley Wrestling. Voting on the board members would start Monday January 4th to be announced a week later.
