This weekend, Missouri Valley Wrestling swung through Illinois for two shows. MVW first started off in Effingham, Illinois.
SATURDAY APRIL 1ST – MVW HOUSE SHOW – EFFINGHAM, IL
Heartland Champion ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin started the show in the ring and tore into former Sports Entertainment Corporation wrestler Christa Carmondy- who was unceremoniously released from the SEC the day following Arch Wrestling Madness. Tess called Christa a choke artist who always managed to freeze up at the most inopportune times.
Tessa Martin: “I mean, has anyone in the history of Missouri Valley Wrestling blown as many golden opportunities to win a title as Christa Carmondy has?”
Tess held up the Heartland title belt and called herself the anti-Christa Carmondy who rescued the title from mediocrity.
This brought out MVW Executive Director Jill Berg.
Jill Berg: “That’s funny that you bring up mediocrity. The person you won the title from- Kari Ferguson – might disagree with you there. Oh…and she’s exercised her rematch clause so Tess, it’s going to be you and Miss Mediocrity, as you call her, for the Heartland belt tonight.”
Tess stewed following Berg’s announcement and stayed out as the rest of the SEC joined her to watch Prisoner #034291 take on Yosemite Samantha in the opener.
Yosemite Samantha defeated Prisoner #034291 w/Sports Entertainment Corporation
-At one point, the always combustible Yosemite Samantha offer to take on entire SEC but referee Davey Keels wisely directed her back into the ring. She hit an incredible shotgun knee lift that stunned the bigger Prisoner #034291 and caused her to sit down in the corner. Then YS raced across the ring to finish her off with the Cannonball but Tess and MVW Tag Team Champions Angels of Death hit the ring and interfered causing Keels to DQ Prisoner #034291
The O’Neders: Rita and Anita defeated The Young Guns: Adrienne Banks and Bethany Stewart w/“Disco Loving, Jet Setting International Playboy from the East” Sheik Yorbouti
-The O’Neders continued their renaissance with another win. However, what MVW show would be complete without the Young Guns’s manager, ‘The Disco Loving, Jet Setting International Playboy from the East’ Sheik Yorbouti doing a little dance for the fans. Yorbouti, Banks, Stewart, and even the O’Neders Got Down Tonight to a little KC and the Sunshine Band after the match.
‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot defeated Harley Davisson w/Carrieanne McDermott
-The ongoing war between Harlot and Eva Perrin over who is the true Queen of the Trailer Park continued to wage on. Perrin, fresh off a big win over Harlot at Arch Wrestling Madness, continued to aggressively attack Harlot and hit her with a steel chair to give Harlot the DQ win.
The Missouri Valley Fight Club’s Davisson and McDermott, on the other hand, furiously chased Perrin to the back after she cost her the match.
Ninja Kitty defeated Eva Perrin w/Colonel John Perrin
-Of course, paybacks are a bitch and in this contest, Ninja Kitty would benefit from a little chicanery to pick up a victory. Harlot returned to the ring and first got into a shouting match with Eva’s husband, Colonel John Perrin. Eventually, Eva became distracted and made the mistake of taking her eye off the super quick Ninja Kitty. One spinning heel kick later followed by the Pounce equaled a pinfall win for Ninja Kitty.
Harlot backed up the aisle towards the back and gave Eva the double bird as a parting gift.
HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH: ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin © w/Sports Entertainment Corporation defeated Kari Ferguson
-To her credit, Tess focused on the task at hand and delivered a textbook title defense victory over a game former Heartland champion as she hit the Pizza Cutter on Ferguson for the win.
That is…until after the match when Tess decided to make her point and hit Ferguson with a second Pizza Cutter as a personal exclamation point.
NON-TITLE MATCH: MVW Tag Team Champions Angels of Death: Angel Casey and Angel Scott w/Sports Entertainment Corporation defeat Main Street USA: C.J. Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris w/MVW Champion Sheline Carrigan and Kirsten Canfield
-In what could be a prelude to an upcoming title match at MVWA 75, Sunday April 30th in Chicago, the AoD defeated Lewis and Iris with the Angel Death Drop.
Brief post-match staredown between the SEC and Main Street USA before the main event.
MAIN EVENT: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens and Anna Conda defeat MVW Champion Sheline Carrigan and Kirsten Canfield w/Main Street USA
-Highlight of the match was when Barbosa-Stevens and Carrigan briefly were in the ring at the same time. Carrigan decided to keep the powder dry and tagged Canfield in. Barbosa-Stevens then hit the Toxic Sting to earn the pinfall win.
SUNDAY APRIL 2ND – MVW HOUSE SHOW – NORMAL, IL
Jill Berg brought out MVW Champion ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan and Lisa Barbosa-Stevens to put pen to paper on their MVWA 75 match for the MVW title. The contract signing went, at least as usual pro wrestling contract signings go, without a hitch and in stark contrast to most usual pro wrestling contract signings, both combatants showed respect towards the other.
Anita O’Neder defeated Bethany Stewart w/“Disco Loving, Jet Setting International Playboy from the East” Sheik Yorbouti
-The story of the first part of 2017 is the re-emergence of former MVW Tag Team champions The O’Neders. Coming out on top following a series of matches against the Korver Sisters, the O’Neders suddenly find themselves inching back into title contention once again. Anita picked up a win over Bethany Stewart and like the night before, there was disco dancing following the match.
Rita O’Neder defeated Prisoner #034291 w/Sports Entertainment Corporation
-Then it was Rita’s turn. Prisoner #034291 has strength and is incredibly effective in short bursts. But in a full match, she has no stamina and fades quickly. Rita outwrestled her and the SEC made their obligatory ring invasion to trigger a DQ.
The four on one beatdown became four on two when Anita O’Neder ran down to the ring and then four on four when Housewives of Chaos: Major Svetlana Kovaleski and Dr. Annabel ‘From Hannibal’ Lecker joined the party.
Carrieanne McDermott w/Harley Davisson defeated Andrea Allen w/“Disco Loving, Jet Setting International Playboy from the East” Sheik Yorbouti
-McDermott’s technical ability ended being too much for young Andrea Allen and the MVFC picked up a singles victory. But on the bright side, more dancing.
Housewives of Chaos: Major Svetlana Kovaleski and Dr. Annabel ‘From Hannibal’ Lecker vs. Main Street USA: ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris and C.J. Lewis- no contest
-Tough weekend for Main Street USA as they lost Saturday night and then run into a buzzsaw before this match began. The SEC came down in force and attacked both teams setting off a four on four brawl.
After order was restored, MVW Executive Director Jill Berg came out and ejected the SEC from ringside for the next match.
NON-TITLE MATCH: Heartland Champion ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin defeated Regina McGill w/Dawn McGill
-Tess got on the microphone after the bell and complained if the SEC had to leave ringside that Dawn should have been sent to the back as well. Regina didn’t care and tackled the Heartland Champion and generally had the upper hand early on. But Tess has hit form like she’s never done before and hit the Pizza Cutter for the win. She teased a second Pizza Cutter but Dawn stepped into the ring and Tess thought better.
Lisa Barbosa-Stevens defeated Kari Ferguson
-Barbosa-Stevens began to tune up for her title challenge against MVW Champion Sheline Carrigan with a nice victory over former Heartland champion Kari Ferguson. Carrigan hung out in the aisle during the match and scouted her future opponent.
NON-TITLE MATCH/MAIN EVENT: MVW Champion ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan defeated ‘High Flying Intercontinental Flight Attendant’ Amie Velasco
-Barbosa-Stevens returned the favor and watched the match at ringside. Carrigan had little trouble with Velasco and decisively picked up the win with the Canadian Destroyer.
Post-match, Barbosa-Stevens gave Carrigan a thumbs up and returned to the back as the show ended.
