Tonight, we preview Sunday night’s Missouri Valley Wrestling Pay Per View show American Heartland at the Indiana Farmer’s Coliseum in Indianapolis, Indiana.
‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki vs. Ninja Kitty
-Yamazaki is just 21 years old and is a brand new signing with MVW. She made quite the impression in her first MVW television appearance when she took out both Ninja Kitty and Robin the Wonder Girl with her finisher- Cranial Contusion.
-Ninja Kitty is a long-time MVW veteran and crowd favorite. Yamazaki ambushed her last week’s Sunday Night Wrestling show. This time, Yamazaki will have to contend with Ninja Kitty’s speed and quickness. Can Ninja Kitty stay away from the impressive offensive arsenal that the newcomer presents? And how will Yamazaki do on a bigger stage in her first actual MVW match?
MVW HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH-Jack Fraiser © vs. Ultratron-5.1
-Heartland Champion Jack Fraiser is two and half months into his title reign having defeated SNAFU for the Heartland belt in early May. Fraiser is backed by his ever present Oootlander Blaire Rendell who travels from the year 1946 through the rocks on the hill of Irish na Dun to be his valet. She has proven to be an invaluable resource for Fraiser and could play an important role in the match.
-The ‘New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1 started off with the unfortunate reputation of being a cheap b-movie robot knock off at the outset. But after he kidnapped Dawn McGill and turned her into his personal valet, his career has been on an upward trajectory. Can McGill, who’s taken a number of MVW wrestlers to the top, do the same for Ultratron-5.1?
The Hanson Sisters: Andrea, Charissa, and Melissa vs. The Korver Sisters: Kelly and Korey vs. Backman Taylor Powerdrive: Charlene Backman and Brianna Taylor
-This is an elimination match involving three women’s tag teams looking to break into title contention.
-The Hanson Sisters are three hockey loving young ladies who come to the ring wearing old school Charlestown Chiefs hockey sweaters and hockey sticks. They take a ‘Slapshot’ approach to their wrestling and incorporate various components of professional hockey into their repertoire. They turned on former friend Yosemite Samantha and signed with the Sports Entertainment Coalition in order to further their tag team careers. Unfortunately for the Hansons, they haven’t made a lot of traction and reportedly are very unhappy with their situation.
-The Korver Sisters are two time MVW Tag Team champions. Kelly and Korey are elite technical wrestlers who if they are on will simply out-executive their opponents.
-Backman Taylor Powerdrive is another up and coming tag team. Their claim is ‘pound for pound’ they are the toughest tag team in women’s wrestling. Not sure about that quite yet. But don’t count Backman and Taylor out.
Angel Scott lifting Harley Davisson up
MVW WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH–Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott © vs. Angels of Death: Angel Scott and Angel Casey
-A battle between the present versus the past.
-It took some time to climb the ladder and stake their claim, but The Missouri Valley Fight Club have now established themselves as the dominant women’s tag team in MVW. They take a gritty, no holds barred approach to their wrestling. Davisson is a pure brawler; McDermott is more technical but she’s not afraid to mix it up if circumstances dictate. Her Glasgow Handshake is a move that often leaves her opponent with a hangover the next day.
-Five time MVW Tag Team champions Angels of Death are the best women’s tag team ever in Missouri Valley Wrestling. Period. But now in their late thirties, Angel Scott and Angel Casey have watched their fortunes fall from the stratosphere back down to earth. The AoD can still bring it but not as consistently as they did when both women were in their prime. This makes them still a dangerous tag team to deal with and the Angel Death Drop is still a devastating finisher if Scott and Casey get the opportunity.
Rah and William Daniels Bryan vs. ????
-At press time, we still do not know who Rah and Bryan’s opponent will be Sunday night though there are rumors floating around about who MVW may have signed.
-Even though both men are members of the Deplorables, Rah and Bryan are an odd pairing. Rah is freewheeling and somewhat unpredictable in the ring. Bryan is a technical wizard and the master of the Cattle Mutilation. Bryan is also still shaking off the leg injury that sidelined him for several months.
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan vs. ‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot vs. ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas
-Another elimination match.
-The Canadian Cyborg looks to springboard into position to get a title shot. Carrigan has feuded primarily with Lisa Barbosa-Stevens since her return to MVW. She’s been inconsistent inside the ring which is why she brought in the man who knows how to ‘Narfle the Garthok’ Coach E.J. Flack to manage her. Carrigan has shown flashes of the old form that made her a dominant champion in MVW a few years ago.
-Back again to take another swing at earning a title shot, the ‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot. Harlot, backed as always by the White Trash Posse (Jaxson and Shayne), boasts one of the more devastating submission finishers in MVW in the White Trash Compactor (Inverted Body Crunch) which makes her an always dangerous opponent.
-MVW Original ‘Texas Cowgirl’ Haley Dallas hasn’t wrestled as much over the past few years. But now that she’s joined up with Charlie Blackwell and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler in the Texas Strangers, Dallas has decided to resume her in-ring career. She’s still shaking off the ring-rust but she’s more than capable of handling her business inside the ring. Watch out for her Texas Lariat.
‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson stalking his prey
‘Red Solo Cup’ Ray McAvay vs. ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson (SEC)
-McAvay and Dickinson have been at each other’s throats since the 330 Pound Southern Brawler cost McAvay and Rah the MVW Tag Team Title at MVWA 89. Since then, McAvay has interfered and cost Dickinson and the Sports Entertainment Corporation a chance at the MVW title. At MVWA 91, McAvay got his revenge on the SEC when his interference cost the SEC’s ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams the MVW tag team belts.
-McAvay is not the wrestler he was back in 2016 when he was riding high in High Octane Wrestling. Injuries and age have begun to slow down the former MVW Champion. But as long as he has access to a Big Bertha Driver or if his opponent leaves himself open for the McGill Bomb (a move named after McAvay’s ex-wife the aforementioned Dawn McGill), McAvay is still a wrestler to be reckoned with.
-Dickinson? His experience with the SEC has not turned out like he hoped it would. Dickinson saw the SEC as the gateway to the MVW title. Instead, he’s been mired in a feud with McAvay- one that Dickinson singlehandedly instigated when he cost McAvay a share of the tag belts. Now, Dickinson wants to settle all accounts with McAvay once and for all and get back on track to challenging for the MVW Title.
MVW TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH-Corporate World Inc.: Kirk Walstreit and P.M.C. Banks © vs. The Sports Entertainment Coalition: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams
-The rematch from MVWA 91 when Corporate World Inc. dethroned the SEC with an assist from Ray McAvay’s Deplorables.
-Walstreit and Banks were unceremoniously dismissed from the SEC by ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann and immediately picked up by the ‘King of Greed’ Gordon Guyko. Guyko’s leadership turned their fortunes around and capped off with them defeating the SEC for the tag belts.
-Like the Hanson Sisters and Bill Dickinson, Miller and Williams find themselves at a crossroads with the SEC. They, too, aren’t happy with the way things are going. Yes, they won the tag belts. But then CWI came along and ended their two month run at the top. Rumor has it CSPN (Corporate Sports-entertainment Programming Nation) CEO Mark Splitter is not happy with Dickinson, Miller, or Williams and their in-ring and out of ring behavior.
-Can Miller and Williams pull it together to win back the tag team title? Or will Walstreit and Banks continue their good run of form and consolidate their title.
MVW WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH-Christa Carmondy © of the SEC vs. Lisa Barbosa-Stevens
-Lisa Barbosa-Stevens owns two consecutive wins over Christa Carmondy at MVWA 90 and 91- one by disqualification; one by count-out. With that in mind, MVW CEO Jill Berg decided the winner of the match no matter what (DQ and count out included) will be the women’s champion. Christa Carmondy’s escape card has just been revoked.
-Barbosa-Stevens, wife of High Octane Wrestling, Defiance, and OCW superstar Scott Stevens, is closing in on her second MVW Women’s title reign. She clearly outwrestled Carmondy at MVWA 90 and 91. Now with the loophole closed for this match, Barbosa-Stevens is gunning for the Women’s title.
-The always mercurial Carmondy finds herself backed up against the wall with her title hanging in the balance. With no more escape hatches to fall back to and the SEC or anyone else prohibited from being at ringside to interfere, can Christa find a way to raise her game and hold off the charging Barbosa-Stevens? She’s done it before. Carmondy defeated Barbosa-Stevens for the title over a year ago in Springfield, Missouri at MVWA 83. The question is- can she do it again?
MVW TITLE MATCH-Charlie Blackwell © vs. ‘The One Man Hollywood A-List’ Stone Chism
-The era of Charlie Wrestling remains strong as Charlie Blackwell closes in on one year as the MVW Champion. Blackwell held off William Daniels Bryan at MVWA 91 to retain the title in a hard fought match and has really come into his own as a wrestler over the past six months.
-Now, it’s the ‘One Man Hollywood A-List’s’ turn to take his shot against Blackwell. Stone Chism has been around the block a few times. He’s been a champion elsewhere. Can he parlay that into defeating Blackwell at American Heartland? Or will the Blackwell express continue to be unstoppable.
