Missouri Valley Wrestling Presents: Evening of Champions Report
Sunday December 2nd, 2019
Kansas City, MO
Announcers: Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall
The evening starts with Thunderbolt and Hall in the ring amidst a bunch of pyro going off to mark the beginning of the show. Thunderbolt talks about how the year began with New Beginnings and will end with Evening of Champions. Six title matches tonight- five of them rematches from recent title encounters- the only non-rematch is Corporate World, Inc. versus Rough Justice.
Hall says the match he is looking forward to the most is the Carrigan versus Barbosa-Stevens rematch. Women’s Champion Sheline Carrigan has a big opportunity to solidify her hold on the title if she can defeat Lisa Barbosa-Stevens tonight. Thunderbolt wonders given Barbosa-Stevens in ring performance after losing the title in Chicago if she’s hit a wall. Hall thinks Barbosa-Stevens will be ready tonight. Who will be right and who will be wrong after that epic encounter? We’ll find out later on.
There’s also a quick discussion of MVW Men’s Champion Charlie Blackwell’s sixteen month title run. Blackwell has held off the likes of Ray McAvay, Stone Chism, and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson among others over the past year. Tonight it’s J.J. Bittinger who gets a rematch for the Men’s title belt after Dickinson interfered in Bittinger’s title challenge against Blackwell four weeks ago.
The matches are run down one last time.

LAURA BERGMAN TALKS WITH MR. McMANN
Laura’s handling the backstage interviews tonight. She flags down Mr. McMann and wonders why he is here.
Laura Bergman and Mr. McMann
McMann gives a non-descript response, lots of hemming and hawing. He takes the obligatory cheap shot at MVW CEO Ray McAvay concerning the ‘McAvay Makeover’ and then leaves.
Both Thunderbolt and Rick Hall think he could be up to something.
Thunderbolt sends it to Kimber Marshall in the ring and it’s time for the show to start.

MATCH #1-SIX MAN TAG TEAM GRUDGE MATCH
The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson
The Kings of Old School: Bobby Ricky Michaels, Marty Gibson-Lane, ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido
When the Kings of Old School first came to MVW aided and abetted by their legendary manager Jackson C. Horne, the Southern Boys saw them as a threat and decided to conduct a pre-emptive strike on them and that’s where it all began.
Simply put, these two team do not like each other. Ray McAvay understands that which is why he’s sent out not one but TWO of his best referees (Davey Keels and Ron Martin) to try to control both teams.
The bell rings and chaos ensues. Miller squares off with Michaels, Williams with Gibson-Lane, Dickinson with Escondido. But Keels and Martin puts an end to the brawl by throwing the four non-legal men out and getting an actual match underway. Miller and Michaels start. Miller powerbombs Michaels and goes for the match’s first pinfall. Miller goes for a second pinfall and Gibson-Lane makes the save. Michaels tags in Escondido who uses his vast repertoire and years of experience to slow down the Dastardly one. Miller then tags in Bill Dickinson who then has a go at Escondido. Dickinson lands big right hands and then starts hip tossing Escondido all over the ring. Scoop slam sends Escondido hard to the deck. Gibson-Lane charges in, okay, Dickinson scoop slams Gibson-Lane onto Escondido. Keels sends Gibson-Lane back out of the ring. Dickinson covers. Escondido somehow escapes and officially tags in Gibson-Lane. The Kings’s manager Horne just watches impassively.
Dickinson tags in Williams. Williams goes after Gibson-Lane but the King has come to fight. Gibson-Lane whips Williams to the ropes and drops the Dangerous one with a dropkick. Gibson-Lane drives Williams to the corner with haymakers. Williams kicks back and tries to pull Gibson-Lane to the Southern Boys’s corner. Dickinson tags in. He lights up Gibson-Lane with right hands and then makes the cover. One…two…Gibson-Lane kicks out. Dickinson tags Miller back in and the two combine for a doubleteam vertical suplex. Miller covers…one…two…again Gibson-Lane kicks out writhing on the mat but still alive. Now Miller tags in Williams. He decides to try to stomp Gibson-Lane through the ring. Michaels and Escondido scream at Gibson-Lane to find a way back to their corner but to no avail. Williams drags Gibson-Lane to his feet, whips him to the ropes, and delivers a spine-crushing Spinebuster. Cover…one…two…Michaels makes the save with a boot to the back. Dickinson charges into the ring, dips his shoulder, and barrels through Michaels sending him flying across the ring. Dickinson throws haymakers at Gibson-Lane. Miller sends Michaels out of the ring through the ropes.
Gibson-Lane mule kicks Dickinson in the balls and gets a brief respite. He tries to crawl back to his corner but Dickinson grabs him by the foot and drags Gibson-Lane back towards the Southern Boys’s corner. Outside the ring, Williams tosses Michaels into the steel barriers. Escondido shoves Williams into the steel barricade. Escondido goes up and dropkicks Williams. Michaels joins in with boots to the fallen Southern Boy. This provokes Dickinson to race around the ring past Horne to clothesline Michaels up and over the steel barricade into the crowd. Then Dickinson puts Escondido over the barricade. This leaves the Kings of Old School short on numbers with an already exhausted Marty Gibson-Lane running on fumes. Miller goes for the Southern Cross but Gibson-Lane escapes. Miller goes up top, knee drop! Mounting Gibson-Lane, Miller slaps on the Cobra Clutch. Finally, Jackson Horne climbs up to the ring apron and tries to do something. Gibson-Lane flails and reaches. Williams runs at Horne and drives him off the ring apron to the floor. Miller pulls Gibson-Lane up a second time…SOUTHERN CROSS! Miller hooks the legs. One…two…THREE!
WINNER: The Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson @ 7:50
Miller, Williams, Dickinson, and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler each celebrate in the ring with a cold bottle of beer.
The Kings of Old School? They’re scattered about. Michaels and Escondido pull themselves back up and over the barricade. Gibson-Lane tries to roll out of the ring. Horne just stands around taking in the atmosphere.
Laura’s got Kirsten Canfield with her before she challenges Eva Perrin for the Women’s Heartland title. She asks Canfield if she has a plan for Perrin.
The former Wichita State Wheatshocker tell Laura she has a good idea of what she’ll do in the match. She’s going to approach it like she approached working her way through college. Kirsten did so and graduated because she persevered and did the hard work needed to get through school. Kirsten admits that Eva is on a big time roll right now and she’s going to be difficult to beat but she’s not going to back down from the challenge. Kirsten is going to buckle down and promises to do her best to bring home the Women’s Heartland title.
Thunderbolt is impressed by Canfield- a former intern who worked for a summer at MVW including in-ring experience and then came back to MVW after graduation- starting as a backstage interviewer and then stepping back into the ring. Hall is too. Rick adds that Eva Perrin will have problems with Kirsten’s unorthodox approach to wrestling and she’ll give the champion fits.
KINGS OF OLD SCHOOL MELTDOWN
Meanwhile, Bobby Ricky Michaels, Marty Gibson-Lane, and ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido are still at ringside and they are giving their manager Jackson C. Horne the what for. Michaels complains that all Horne does is fly in for the show and stands there. There’s no ‘managing.’ Michaels says all Horne does is hang out at ringside and do nothing- then fly right back home because he’s more interesting in having sex with his wife Dawn McGill than he is helping their career.
Gibson-Lane gives Horne an ultimatum. Either he’s in or he’s not. If no, they’ll find someone else to manage them.
Hall completely understands where they’re coming from- but add he’d probably do the same thing Horne’s doing if he were married to Dawn McGIll. Thunderbolt concurs.
Kimber Marshall is back in the ring for the next match. She first brings out the challenger.
AGE: 22 HT: 5’ 7” WT: 95 / HOME: Wichita, KS
FIN: Wheatshocker Deluxe
Then the champion.
The loudspeaker blares ‘Don’t Cry For Me, Argenta‘
(It’s the classic ‘Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina from Evita done as a country song and sung horribly by…not sure…we think it’s Eva Perrin doing the awful vocals.)
A group of shirtless people aka descamisados pull a flatbed wagon out to the ring. On the wagon lying on a nice bed is Eva Perrin. She has rollers in her bright red hair and is wearing silk pajamas.
Next to her is her husband, John Perrin. He wears a bright red robe that covers his silk pajamas. They trade off taking a puff from a cigarette as the flatbed wagon comes to a stop.
Standing by the bed is Lani Harlot who looks less than pleased to be there.
Ring announcer Kimber Marshall introduces her.

Eva jumps off the bed and raises her arms to the sky a la Evita. She walks to the ring with John Perrin following right behind her.
MATCH #2/WOMEN’S HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH
‘Trailer Park Queen’ Eva Perrin ©
Eva won the tournament to crowd the inaugural Women’s Heartland champion in September and she’s fended off several challenges to her title. Can Kirsten Canfield be the one who dethrones the first Women’s Heartland champion?
Referee Corrina Romanov checks both women out and calls for the bell.
Perrin goes at Canfield fast and armdrag takedowns her to the mat. Perrin stomps away in the corner. Romanov starts a five count and eventually Perrin backs off. But when Romanov turns her head, Perrin grins and lays a couple more boots in for good measure. Perrin bounces Canfield’s head off the buckles…and then again. Canfield staggers under the early onslaught by the champion. Perrin rams her head into the other two turnbuckles and the fans boo. Perrin looms over Canfield and again stomps away at her. Finally Canfield gets a little offense in with kicks but then she runs smack dab into tilt-o-whirl into a backbreaker. Perrin takes her sweet time with her next move and tells Canfield she can do this all night long.
Thunderbolt thinks Perrin is taking the right tack here by not allow Canfield to do the things she likes to do. Hall agrees but wonders if Canfield was playing a little possum.
Again, Perrin drags the challenger up and transitions right into a snap suplex. Colonel Perrin shouts at his wife to beat on her a little more. But before she can do so, Canfield smartly gets out of the ring. Unfortunately, she’s outnumbered. Lani Harlot goes over to fetch Canfield and throw her into the barriers! Harlot chops away at Canfield and then flings her into the ring post. Finally, Harlot throws Canfield back in at 6 and stalks her to a corner.
Kirsten tries to fight back but Perrin trips her up! Perrin drags Canfield into a Tree of Woe and stomps away on her. Perrin backs off- runs corner to corner- and hits a basement dropkick. Perrin covers…one…two…ropebreak! Perrin claps her hands and grins. Then she slaps on a chinlock. Canfield fights to escape and endure and the fans rally up. Canfield battles her way back up to her feet and fights her way out only to be tossed back down by Perrin. The champion drags Kirsten to the ropes and drapes her neck first over the ropes. She chokes her over the ropes which draws Romanov’s ire and she tells Perrin to stop. While she debates the issue with the Women’s Heartland champion, Harlot jumps up onto the apron and hits a guillotine leg drop. Canfield rolls off the ropes onto her back and holds her throat. Colonel Perrin mocks her pain. The fans try to rally Canfield but Perrin is all over her. She lifts Kirsten up for a suplex. Canfield flips through and throws rights back at Perrin. She whips Eva to the ropes but gets reversed. Canfield kicks right back and goes for a springboard but Colonel Perrin kicks her leg out from under her.
The odds were against the plucky underdog from Wichita. Could she find a way to pull out a win?
Canfield keeps her cool and hears the fans rallying behind her once one more time. She climbs up to her feet but again there’s Perrin and she unloads more haymakers. Kirsten fights back and Perrin falls back. Perrin gets a fireman’s carry into a jackhammer slam. Cover…one…two…Canfield kicks out. Perrin is furious. She hurries to get Canfield set for the Overthrow but Kirsten slips out the back door. She tries to hit her Wheatshocker Deluxe- Perrin evades her but Canfield finally gets some space. She goes to the apron and takes aim – springboards – and hits a flying hurricanrana. Canfield for the win. Cover…one…two…Perrin gets the shoulder up and she immediately looks towards Colonel Perrin and Lani Harlot for help. Canfield again rolls up Perrin. One…two…TH-NO! Perrin grabs the bottom rope as Harlot was slow to hit the ring to make the save. Romanov goes over to stop Harlot. Perrin takes advantage by going low. Canfield doubles over. Perrin lifts her up to an upside down position. Steps forward to trap Canfield’s arms. Plants Canfield face first to the mat.
Thunderbolt Smith: THE OVERTHROW!
Game over. One…two…THREE.
WINNER AND STILL MVW WOMEN’S HEARTLAND CHAMPION: ‘Trailer Park Queen’ Eva Perrin @ 10:12
Afterwards, Perrin goes over to Harlot and the two exchange words. Up to this point, Harlot has been the good soldier after losing the Queen of the Trailer Park Match to Perrin back on October 25th. But now, could there been cracks developing? Perrin stomps off to the back with Colonel Perrin in tow leaving Harlot in her dust.
Thunderbolt narrates a video retrospective of ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1’s MVW escapades starting when he kidnapped Dawn McGill- the first time…the time he prevented a MVW Wrestling Night in the Heartland from airing…fighting with Ray McAvay…provoking ‘The Sunshine God’ Rah and completely pissing him off…kidnapping Dawn McGill- the second time…and then the swap for Dawn’s daughter Tori. Last week, Ray McAvay finally put his foot down and put a stop to Ultratron-5.1’s shenanigans.
Laura Bergman talks with The Sunshine God who’s flanked by his entourage: Happy Mango, Bob Nye-Foot Fetish Guy, and the BronzeBeach Bikini Suntan Team.
‘The Sunshine God’ Rah
Rah tells her Ultratron-5.1 crossed a line when he attacked him and others and calls him a meglomaniac hell bent on complete domination of MVW. He explains to Laura that the problem with that is that Ultratron-5.1 is trying to be something he’s not. He tries to be fearsome- he’s not. He tries to project an image of strength and cunning and ruthlessness- he’s not. Rah adds Ultratron-5.1 can barely keep Todd the Backstage Interviewer in line. He calls ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ a miserable person and a really crappy robot. Rah doesn’t get mad very often- but he’s royally pissed off at Ultratron-5.1 and he will do something he never does- go out to the ring with the intention of inflicting severe bodily harm to him. The interview ends with Bob Nye admiring Laura’s feet and she quickly signs off to get away from him.
Kimber Marshall is back in the ring as we are ready for match number three. She begins to introduce Rah but as we all know- not just ANYONE gets to introduce Rah. Kimber is interrupted by a man dressed in an expensive suit and bow-tie who’s elbowed her out of the way. The man gestures for Kimber to take a temporary powder because he’s the one who’s been given the honor and privilege of introducing a living deity. Over the loudspeaker, a buzzing synth sound blares and the announcer guy raises the microphone to his mouth
Announcer Guy (in a voice not unlike Michael Buffer): Ladies and gentlemen. I present to you the almost universally-worshipped king of the sun gods of all creation. He commands the chariot that rode across the sky during the day. He is the great, fiery globe in the sky, a welcome, nurturing presence to honor the season. He is the inspiration for those who would throw virgins into the gaping maw of a volcano – perhaps an Icelandic volcano – even though such shenanigans haven’t been acceptable since the 1950s. And just for your reference, he is, for 33 years in a row, proven to be one of UC San Diego‘s most enduring traditions in the Sun God festival- an all-day music festival celebrated by more than 20,000 students, alumni and friends. But that’s not important.
He pauses and looks out at the crowd as the lights turn off. A small spotlight illuminates the ramp where the BeachBronze Suntan Bikini Girls are standing. The bikini girls pose on the ramp. Then two large, hulking men carry out a golden sedan chair holding a six foot eight inch, two hundred and eighty pound man dressed in long flowing robes inside.
Announcer Guy: Either way, you should thank your lucky stars and kiss his royal ass for gracing you with his presence here tonight. I give to you…the reason the Earth doesn‘t float away in the vastness of space…the reason it’s eighty degrees outside and not minus four hundred and fifty-nine point six seven…and the reason Brian Wilson wrote all those great songs…ladies and gentlemen…bow down before the Sunshine God…
Rah’s friend and middle-aged folk singer Happy Mango follows strumming a guitar along with the omnipresent Bob Nye- Foot Fetish Guy.
Announcer Guy: …RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
The procession stops at the ring steps. Rah climbs out of his golden sedan chair and prepares to climb into the ring.
Kimber rips the microphone back from Rah’s announcer guy and finishes the proper introduction.
Rah!: The Sunshine God

MATCH #3/HEARTLAND TITLE MATCH:
‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1 ©
‘The Sunshine God’ Rah
Ultratron-5.1 and the Sunshine God meet once again for the Heartland title. Rah may have lost the Heartland title, but he’s is not letting it bother him. But Ultratron-5.1 using Poison Penny with her Poison Kiss- that’s another story. Will Rah get payback for that? Or will Poison Penny again make her presence felt in this match?
The bell rings and Ultratron-5.1 delivers a double flipping of the bird. Rah hauls off and DECKS Ultratron-5.1 with one punch and then fires off more forearms! Rah takes him down and grounds ‘n’ pounds away but the champion gets out of the ring for a brief respite that never comes because Rah’s right behind him. He tosses Ultratron-5.1 into the steel barricade while also keeping eyes on Poison Penny as she creeps closer. Referee Davey Keels starts a ten count so Rah drags Ultratron-5.1 back to the ring. Poison Penny jumps up on the apron. Rah throws the champion into the corner and turns towards Ultratron-5.1. RAH BOOTS THE CHAMPION! Cover…one…two- Ultratron-5.1 escapes out the back door and scoots out of the ring where the Heartland champion thinks he’s safe. He’s not. Rah suddenly takes off and to the crowd’s delight launches his six foot eight frame through the ropes and through Ultratron-5.1. Both men tumble to the floor and land at the base of the steel barricade. Poison Penny sprints over and she goes for a Poison Kiss. Rah pushes her back and gets back to his feet.
Keels starts another ten count and both men get back to the ring. But Ultratron-5.1 skips back out of the ring and Rah follows. Ultratron-5.1 springs a trap and goes to whip Rah into the ringpost. Rah blocks and before he can do more, Ultratron-5.1 runs away again. They race around the ring twice before Ultratron-5.1 finally veers back into the ring. Poison Penny is right there and goes up to Rah for her Poison Kiss again but RAH DROPS HER WITH A RIGHT HAND! The crowd pops. Rah pauses and then continues his pursuit of Ultratron-5.1.
Thunderbolt is stunned and can’t believe Rah just punched Poison Penny. Hall says considering she cost him the Heartland title and then just tried to interfere in the match…again- he calls it an act of self-defense.
Rah traps the champion in a corner and stomps away at him. Ultratron-5.1 taunts Rah and dares the Sunshine God to ‘come on.’ Rah obliges. Ultratron-5.1 dodges and Rah gets hung up in the turnbuckle. The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine then kicks at Rah’s leg over and over. Rah forearms Ultratron-5.1 to get him away. Ultratron-5.1 responds with a blatant choke and doesn’t let up until Keels makes it to 4. Rah tries to drag Ultratron-5.1 up to scoop but again the champion boots at his leg. Ultratron-5.1 slips out and slams Rah’s head into the turnbuckle. Then he uses Rah’s hair to throw him over the top rop. Rah skins the cat and hangs on. Ultratron-5.1 then dropkicks him to the floor. The crowd boos as the Heartland champion poses in the ring. Happy Mango and a couple members of the BronzeBeach Suntan Bikini Team go over to check on Rah. Keels starts a ten count. Rah catches his breath and eventually climbs back into the ring. As soon as Rah’s in, Ultratron-5.1 rolls out and the crowd really starts letting him have it.
Hall thinks Ultratron-5.1’s tactics are spot on. He’s trying to provoke the Sunshine God and get him so wound up that he’ll make mistakes. Thunderbolt ponders given the decided weight difference between the two men if the Heartland champion really wants an angry Rah chasing after him. The boos turn into loud cheers when a blonde suddenly appears on stage and runs down to the ring.
AGE: 22 / HT: 6’ 2″ WT: 140 / HOME: Killeen, TX
FIN: McGill Bomb
As Tori McGill – held captive by Ultratron-5.1 for a couple weeks until McAvay intervened – approaches, Ultratron-5.1 sees her and immediately hauls ass back into the ring and right into the waiting arms of Rah. Grab to the throat + Lift + Slam = Solstice Slam. Rah covers. Keels down…one…two…Ultratron-5.1 gets the shoulder up. Rah drags Ultratron-5.1 up for a suplex but Ultratron boots him in the balls. Ultratron-5.1 waistlocks Rah. Rah fires elbows over and over until he gets loose. Ultratron-5.1 goes low a second time and drops Rah to his knees. BUZZSAW KICK to the side of Rah’s head. He topples to the mat. Ultratron-5.1 covers. One…two…NO! Rah kicks out and sends Ultratron-5.1 rolling into the corner. Riled up now, Rah sprints towards him but Ultratron-5.1 grabs the arm and takes him down headfirst into the corner turnbuckle. The champion tries to roll him over but Rah kicks Ultratron-5.1 away. The two stand up and take a breath.
Ultratron-5.1 charges and runs into Rah’s elbow. Poison Penny swipes at him. Rah ignores her but Ultratron-5.1 jumps on his back and goes for the sleeper hold. Rah tries to flip him over and off. Finally he turns around and starts slamming Ultratron-5.1 back first into the corner turnbuckle. And then again. And again. This time, Ultratron-5.1 releases the hold and falls to a seated position. Rah pulls Ultratron-5.1 up and sets up for the Eye of Rah (jackknife powerbomb). Poison Penny rolls into the ring on one side. Tori McGill suddenly rolls into the ring from the other. The crowd rises up sensing something’s about to happen. Rah goes to lift Ultratron-5.1 up – Poison Penny rushes forward – Tori McGill rushes forward – and then Tori boots Rah in the balls…wait…WHAT?
Gasps all around from the stunned crowd. Rah drops Ultratron-5.1 who immediately uses every ounce of strength he has to get a fireman’s carry on Rah leading up to- THE DISINTEGRATOR (modified F-5). But Keels has already called for the bell. He’s disqualifying Ultratron-5.1 for outside interference.
WINNER: ‘The Sunshine God’ Rah via DQ @ 13:48 / Ultratron-5.1 retains the Heartland Title
As Keels returns the Heartland title belt to Ultratron-5.1, Poison Penny strikes and lays a Poison Kiss on Rah. Stunned soon turns to anger and the crowd expresses their displeasure at the unexpected turn of events. Happy Mango and Bob Nye-Foot Fetish Guy also jump up onto the ring apron to give their two cents about what’s just gone down. McGill goes right over to them and knocks him right back off the apron to the floor. Then Tori goes over and joins Poison Penny in stomping away at the Sunshine God. The crowd starts throwing debris in the ring. The BronzeBeach Bikini Suntan team watch helplessly. Mango and Nye are motionless on the floor. Is there anyone in the building who can come to Rah’s aid?
IT’S THE NEW STUFF
*”Beastie Boys Vs. Led Zeppelin – Black Sabotage”*
And the ceiling gets blown off. The Six Foot Demolition Machine in a Short Skirt who can’t stay retired from pro wrestling for more than a couple weeks at a time- Dawn McGIll- also mother of one Tori McGill- comes walking out from the back with quite the stern, maternal expression on her face.
In one of the biggest understatements ever, Thunderbolt says ‘this is about to get real interesting.’ She climbs right into the ring and breezes past her daughter right for the person who she feels is responsible- Ultratron-5.1. The Heartland champion decides to take a powder and rolls out of the ring with his title belt to safety. Poison Penny charges Dawn. Dawn drop toeholds her to the mat and lays in a few stomps while Tori watches. Finally, the daughter comes over and spins her mother around. Dawn asks ‘why?’ Tori shrugs. She turns away from Dawn. Dawn’s not having that and grabs Tori and whirls her around. Tori then boots her in the gut, lifts her up, and slams her right back down with the McGill Bomb.
Cue more debris being thrown into the ring.
Tori’s not done yet. She pulls her woozy mother back up and launches her head first into the corner ring post. Dawn bounces off and topples to the mat. That’s all, right? Nope. Tori pulls her up in a gutwrench position and in one motion spins her upside down, sits out, and drives Dawn to the mat face first. Dawn’s all but out.
*“Party Wherever We Go (SEC Network Theme Song)”- Robert Randolph and the Family Band*
And now the crowd really gets roiling. The ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann deliberately makes his way down with the biggest smirk in the world on his face. He’s followed by the official ‘Mouthpiece of the SEC’ Phil Finebaum and then to the shock of both Thunderbolt and Hall- Corporate Sports Program Nation CEO Mark Splitter. Thunderbolt remembers the way Splitter left Missouri Valley Wrestling after Ray McAvay was named the CEO.
(REPLAY: August 4th Wrestling Night in the Heartland Show/ Reaction of CSPN CEO Mark Splitter right after Ray McAvay announcement)
MVW backstage interviewer Kirsten Canfield talks to CSPN CEO Mark Splitter with CSPN reporters Reese Anderson and Rebecca Morris standing beside him.
Kirsten Canfield: Mark? Your thoughts-
Mark Splitter: *BLEEP* you. *BLEEP* Jill Berg. *BLEEP* Ray McAvay. *BLEEP* this *BLEEP*-ing place. *BLEEP* the whole *BLEEP*-ing lot of you. CSPN is LEAVING Missouri Valley Wrestling and we’re never, EVER coming back into this *BLEEP*-hole.
Splitter stomps off with Anderson and Morris in tow.
McMann first walks up to the Men’s Heartland Champion Ultratron-5.1. He shakes hands with the champion. Then McMann reaches into his suit coat pocket and hands Ultratron-5.1 an envelope. Ultratron-5.1 smiles (a rarity) when he pulls out a check for a substantial amount of money. Then McMann climbs into the ring and walks over to Tori McGill.
McMann coincidentally has a microphone and decides to regale the fans in Kansas City with the tale of what he’s done here tonight…so far. He looks down at the fallen body of Dawn McGill and shakes his head. McMann’s chased her for so long but now Dawn’s obsolete. Why should he bring in an old, outdated, burned out and spent relic (Dawn) when he can bring in a new and better version of Dawn McGill (Victoria McGill)? McMann goes over to Dawn and tells her she had her chance, she threw it away, and now she’s about to be thrown into the trash heap of pro wrestling history.
Dawn gets back to her hands and knees and gives McMann a rather hateful glare. McMann rolls his eyes and motions to Tori to ‘finish it.’ And she does. Tori walks over and drives a high knee into the skull and Dawn’s knocked out cold before she hits the mat.
McMann hands Tori an envelope containing a check inside. Finebaum gets on the microphone and proclaim the SEC is alive and well as “Party Wherever We Go” fires up again. Meanwhile, medical personnel rush down to the ring to check on Dawn McGill.
Thunderbolt asks what does this all mean. Hall says it’s obvious- the Sports Entertainment Corporation is back in business.
BACKSTAGE-MVW Women’s Tag Team Champions Missouri Valley Fight Club and the People’s Front of Berea (KY)
Laura Bergman talks with the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Tag Team Champions The Missouri Valley Fight Club. Harley Davisson is eager to discuss the upcoming match against the People’s Front of Berea….Kentucky. Davisson tells Laura when she and Carrieanne McDermott decided to start tagging together earlier in the year, they decided they would declare war on any tag team who challenged them or got in their way- especially once MVW make the decision to add the Women’s Tag Team title to the company. Davisson says with the exception of the Angels of Death hiccup (the AoD defeated the MVFC and held the tag belts for twenty-eight days), the Missouri Valley Fight Club has blazed a trail to the top of the MVW Women’s division. McDermott adds that they’ve taken on all comers and proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are the best women’s tag team in the Missouri Valley Wrestling.
Harley Davisson: “Our opponents approach wrestling us as if it’s some call to arms to step up and try to do everything in their power to knock us off. We get everyone’s best every time we step into the ring. And yet, here we are- still the champions.
With that final declaration, the MVFC exit to get ready for the match and the challengers slide on in to talk with Laura Bergman.
Laura commits the cardinal sin of messing up the People’s Front of Berea’s name by welcoming the Berean People’s Front to Kansas City. Zeb Morris immediately takes offense and makes clear to Laura that she’d better watch her damn mouth, sister. Zeb declares they ain’t the Berean People’s Front- they’re the People’s Front of Berea. Dayle Joe Foster of the PFB adds the ‘Kentucky’ part. Laura tries to dig out of the hole she’s dug but Zeb ain’t having any of it and tells her to keep her ‘damn mouth shut’ and let them talk.
Zeb calls the PFB the best damn women’s tag team anyone’s ever seen- all the way from lot 101 of the Happy Acres Mobile Home park in Berea, Kentucky! He sure as hell doesn’t care about who the opponent is tonight because the PFB – Kellyanne Morris and Bailey Foster – are gonna treat the MVFC like the PFB would treat a bad dog. They’re gonna kick ‘em in the ass and leave them tied up on the front porch while Kellyanne and Bailey walk away with the title belts.
And with those final words, Thunderbolt and Hall turn to Kimber Marshall again for the in-ring introduction.
Kimber’s in the ring and brings out the challengers.

MATCH #4/WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH:
Missouri Valley Fight Club: Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott ©
The People’s Front of Berea (KY): Kellyanne Morris and Bailey Foster
Romanov calls for the bell. The bell rings and fans are fired up already! Morris and Davisson circle. Lock up and to a tie up and both women end up in the PFB’s corner. Morris drives her shoulder into Davisson’s stomach along on the ropes- the ref calls for the break. Morris lets up and then shoves Davisson. Harley shoves back. Before the referee can intervene, Davisson follows with a series of kicks and takes a headlock. Morris powers out but gets run over by Davisson. Davisson runs the ropes, Morris drops down on the first pass and leaps over on the second. Morris leaps on the third pass. Davisson stops and pops Morris. Foster jumps in and dropkicks Davisson’s leg out from under her. Morris comes off the ropes for a clothesline, Davisson ducks through and tags in McDermott. The Scot rushes in. She takes a full nelsons and turns it into a snap dragon suplex. Cover. One…two…Morris kicks out and tries to get to Foster. McDermott pulls her back- powerbomb lift – she throws Morris into the corner turnbuckle for a buckle bomb. Morris staggers back out and walks into a pop-up spinebuster. Cover…one…two…kickout. Morris bails out to the safety of the PFB. McDermott kneels and calculates her next move. She then throws herself into the ropes and builds speed coming back across the ring until she takes flight over the top rope and takes out the entire contingent of the People’s Front of Berea on the floor. The crowd rises to their feet and gives McDermott an ovation.
Both Thunderbolt and Hall are amazed as the Scot manages to get back up and away from the bad part of town before the PFB can scramble their forces to their feet for a counterattack. Referee Corrina Romanov starts the obligatory ten count. McDermott rolls in long enough to tag Davisson in. Morris does the same- she makes the tag and we see Bailey Foster in the ring for the first time tonight. Davisson advances and Foster slips her leg through the ropes. Romanov waits a few seconds before she starts another count on the PFB wrestler. But Foster drives her shoulder into Davisson’s midsection and slingshots up and over for a high crossbody. She tries to hook the legs but Davisson rolls her over for a snap cover. One…Foster kicks out. Davisson goes full nelson. Foster slips out with elbows. Davisson pulls her right back and clocks her with a right hand. Then she goes over and nails Morris and sends her off the apron! Foster jumps on Davisson’s back and holds on for dear life. Davisson backs into the corner turnbuckle once…twice…and the third time she scrapes Foster off. Zeb Morris (Kellyanne’s husband) then gets up on the apron to converse with the referee. The distraction allows Dayle Joe Foster to club Davisson in on the back. The cheap shot allows Foster to slap on a half nelson. She goes for the full but Davisson blocks and uses a few well-placed boots to escape. Kellyanne Morris climbs up to the top turnbuckle and let’s fly a moonsault. She gets a direct hit on Davisson but Bailey Foster is the collateral damage and the fans get all fired up as both women are down in the ring. Romanov starts a ten count- who will get up first?
With McDermott screaming at Davisson to get up and the entire People’s Front of Berea on the apron urging Foster on both women start to stir. Foster stands first, and tags back in Morris at 6. Davisson pulls herself up with assistance from the ropes and both women are in opposite corners. Morris runs across the ring. Davisson evades. Jumps to the middle rope and hits a cutter on Morris. Davisson sees Morris floundering and goes top rope. Morris makes back to her feet- Davisson jumps and hits a missile dropkick. She covers. One…two…ROPEBREAK! Davisson is furious and slams her hand on the mat three times. Seizing the moment, Davisson stomps the hell out of Morris while she’s down and drives her to a corner. Davisson whips Morris corner to corner and Kellyanne hits the turnbuckle hard! She grits her teeth in pain, but stays on her feet and defiant. Davisson applauds and then takes her down with a snapmare and lays the boots to her. Morris gets back to her knees and hits back with body shots. Davisson fires back with right hands of her own and snapmares Morris. She takes a chinlock and tries to grind Morris down but the PFB member manages to fight her way up. Morris fights out and dives at her corner to make the hot tag to Foster. Foster runs in and lays in some chops. Davisson tries to circle and get space but she wanders too close to the PFB corner and Zeb Morris shoves her from behind. Foster closes in quickly and takes her down with a drop toehold. Kentucky Fried Chickenwing- no…Davisson sense danger and quickly rolls out of harm’s way before Foster can slap on her submission finisher.
Davisson back in. Lock up. Davisson with a fireman’s carry but Foster escapes and pushes her into a corner. Davisson hits back with a right hand but then walks into a boot. Davisson wobbles, Foster runs, but Davisson belts her with a right hand and whips her to the ropes. She follows but Foster ducks under and runs the ropes. Both women tries to clothesline each other and the two end up lying flat on their back in the middle of the ring. The fans are fired up! Thunderbolt calls it a fifty-fifty match. Hall opines both teams will have to reach down to overcome their opponent. It’s Davisson who stirs first as fans rally up. She’s got to get to her corner and tag McDermott in. Foster stalks her to stop the tag but too late- Davisson makes the hot tag and here comes a fresh and very rested Carrieanne McDermott. She lowers her head and shoots the leg for a takedown. Foster rakes the eyes and gets away. But instead of tagging in Morris, she runs to a corner and climbs to the top rope. McDermott follows and rakes Foster’s eyes. Wait. She somehow lifts Foster up to a vertical suplex position. But she doesn’t go suplex, she goes SUPER FALCON ARROW from the top rope! Again, the Kansas City MVW fans stand up as McDermott hooks the legs and rolls Foster up…one…two….NO, Morris makes the save! Davisson back in and she whips Morris to a corner. She follows and unloads right hand after right hand. McDermott drags Foster into the drop zone. She climbs up to the top rope again just as Davisson tosses Morris through the ropes to the floor. She sets herself and leaps…FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH! McDermott hooks the legs – here comes Delaney Foster and Zeb Morris. One. Davisson runs in and literally throws herself in their path. Two. Delaney and Zeb collide with the human projectile and lose their balance. THREE! Romanov calls for the bell and the MVFC will survive.
WINNER AND STILL MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: The Missouri Valley Fight Club @ 17:15
The denizens of the great city of Berea, Kentucky pushed the women’s tag team champions to the brink but as they’ve done many times over the length of their title reign, the Missouri Valley Fight Club somehow find the key to unlock a victory and prevail over a very tough People’s Front of Berea…Kentucky. There’s a grudging handshake between the two teams before they make their way back to their dressing rooms.
BACKSTAGE-Sports Entertainment Corporation and CSPN
Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Program Nation interviewers Reese Anderson and Rebecca Morris fawn all over the Sports Entertainment Genius Mr. McMann. Anderson as always is dressed in an expensive suit and tie and coifs some impressive television hair (think Dan Patrick in his prime). As for Rebecca Morris, her blonde hair is tied in a bun and she wears a business suit with heels.
With the CSPN camera people prominently in view to cover the press opportunity, Anderson formally announces that the partnership between the SEC and CSPN- THE worldwide corporate forerunner in sports entertainment, is back on once again and a new deal had been struck. McMann calls tonight “the greatest night in Missouri Valley Wrestling history” with the new deal with CSPN. He then introduces the ‘Greatest Heartland Champion of all time’, and ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1 walks out. The Heartland champion walks out to all the fanfare he feels he deserves (basically the CSPN reporters and staff clap- no one else backstage does).
Ultratron-5.1 joins Anderson and Morris while the CSPN staffers chant, “Thank You, Mr. McMann.” Ultratron-5.1 tells Anderson he used to dream of world domination and complete subjugation of every worker in MVW under his rule. But now, Ultratron-5.1 has found a higher purpose. He shows a fistful of cash to Anderson and Morris. Ultratron-5.1 states he used to think ultimate power was his objective- now he realizes that ultimate power comes with an accumulation of money and thanks McMann for ‘showing him the way.’
McMann then interjects that for the first time, he feels that he’s getting the thanks he deserves. Not from the fans- they don’t matter, they just need to do as they’re told and react the way they’re supposed to when McMann wants them to. No, for the first time, McMann feels a great deal of appreciation from the CSPN top brass! McMann predicts this is going to be the best night in MVW pay per view history and we are all here to witness history- the rebirth of the SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT CORPORATION.
PARKING LOT-Dawn McGill
There’s a quick film clip of McGill being stretchered into a waiting ambulance with Jackson Horne right by her side. Curiously, also there is a CSPN camera crew who hovers over her while filming at an uncomfortably close range. Horne finally whacks the cameraman over the head with his Cornet and the attendants finally get Dawn loaded.
Thunderbolt announces she has a concussion as a result of her daughter Tori’s attack on her. As the ambulance drives away, Thunderbolt wonders if this is the last time we’ll see Dawn McGill in MVW. Rick Hall, recounting the various times Dawn has tried to retire from pro wrestling, tells Thunderbolt not to bet the ranch on that.
Laura Bergman has D.B. Ruff and Connor Justice aka…Rough Justice with her. Ruff calls Rough Justice the ‘feel-good story’ of Missouri Valley Wrestling. They’ve worked their way up from the bottom and now tonight, they get a shot at the MVW Tag Team Titles on the end of the year pay per view show. Justice says not bad for two former police officers who were unfairly fired from their jobs due to their extreme brand of justice. Ruff points out that here in MVW- their brand of justice is not extreme or potentially adverse to retaining their job. Justice say tonight justice will be served on corporate America and on Corporate World, Inc. when Rough Justice becomes the new Tag Team Champions.
PROMO-MVW Tag Team Champions Corporate World, Inc.
The Undisputed King of Greed Gordon Guyko speaks for the tag team champions: P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit- both impeccably dressed as usual in very expensive suits. An annoyed Guyko says he’s just heard the crap coming from Mr. McMann and the SEC and takes exception to it- asking rhetorically what do they think they’re are doing- celebrating like they actually did something? Guyko goes on to explain that Corporate World, Inc. are the tag team champions and did so without the money and corporate power of the Sports Entertainment Corporation. McMann shouldn’t be thanked- Corporate World, Inc. should be thanked because Corporate World, Inc. are the iron-men of Missouri Valley Wrestling. While the fans and those SEC guys (pointing to the fans and then pointing to the back) would love to be in our position, tonight everyone all has the privilege of watching Corporate World, Inc. successfully defend their Missouri Valley Wrestling Tag Team Championships because that’s just what P.M.C. Banks and ‘The Wall Street Market Analyst- who just happens to have a man crush on ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit – Kirk Walstreit does.
Kimber Marshall’s in the ring which means it’s time for the match. She brings out the challengers first.

MATCH #5/MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH:
Corporate World, Inc.: P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit ©
Rough Justice: D.B. Ruff and Connor Justice
Rough Justice decides to NOT wait for the bell and we’re off. Ruff and Justice pitch Banks out of the ring and try to doubleteam Walstreit. Referee Davey Keels calls for the bell and tells Ruff to leave the ring. But the former police officers ignore his order and whip Walstreit to the ropes. Doubleteam backdrop on the return. Ruff and Justice goes corner to corner to corner doubleteam clothesline on Walstreit. Justice whips the ‘Wall Street Market Analyst with the Man Crush on ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit’ the other way and follows with a second corner clothesline. Walstreit bails out of the ring and commiserates with Banks and Guyko. Ruff high-fives Justice and exits the ring. Thunderbolt thinks Rough Justice is up for this one- Hall says they need to keep doing what they’re doing. Walstreit returns and he locks up with Justice. Eye poke by Justice. Walstreit boots him in the gut in response and feeds Justice into a meeting with Banks’s knee. Walstreit adds a high knee of his own and hooks the legs. One…two…Justice kicks out. Justice keeps his cool even though Walstreit drags him right back up and fights back with right hands- Walstreit shoves, Justice dodges and Banks slips in a cheap shot from behind. Walstreit spins Justice around and- DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Ruff in the ring and chases Banks out of the ring as Walstreit hooks the legs. The count is late as Keels was out of position…one…t- easy kick out for Justice. Walstreit tags in Banks. Ruff also tags in.
Ruff with a simple snap mare takedown and goes for a shock cover. One…-Banks kicks out. Banks lands a right hand and whips Ruff corner to corner. Ruff slams into the buckles hard and stumbles out into a hip toss. Banks backs Ruff to the ropes and delivers a body shot – kick to the leg – quick tag to Walstreit and he snap suplexes him immediately! Walstreit with a snapmare and runs the ropes to build speed. Ruff ducks under and whiffs on a low blow attempt. Walstreit comes off the opposite side ropes and goes tilt-a-whirl into a tornado DDT. Lateral press cover. One…two…Ruff kicks out. Walstreit drags Ruff up and sends him into Corporate World’s corner. Walstreit stomps away at him and tags Banks back in. Ruff still trapped in the corner. Banks joins in and both men stomp the hell out of Ruff. Justice rockets into the ring but Keels heads him off at the pass while trying to get Walstreit out of the ring at the same time. Banks pulls Ruff legs- Ruff tries to hold on to the ropes – loses his grip – and he lands hard on his back. Banks rolls him up. One…two…ROPEBREAK! Ruff somehow found the rope with his hand. Banks pulls him towards the middle and covers again. One…two…Justice in to make the save. Walstreit hops over the top rope and he’s in. Keels gets in between them. Banks drops a leg across Ruff’s throat. He goes for another- Ruff rolls out of the way. He gets up and tries to get to the corner – Banks chops Ruff off his feet and drags him back up in a facelock. Ruff tries to fight his way out. Banks lifts him for a powerbomb. Ruff fights out and makes the hot tag to Justice. Justice hits the ring but then he gets clobbered by…two men in suits?
They look kind of familiar…

FIN: Gut Check
With a CSPN film crew hurriedly rushing down to film what happens, Michaels and Gibson-Lane of the Kings of Old School – no Jackson Horne with them by the way – tackle and beat down Justice in the ring. Ruff charges in and he gets whacked down by Banks and Walstreit. Keels throws the match out. Rough Justice will get the win but not the tag titles.
WINNER: Rough Justice via DQ @ 9:04 / Corporate World, Inc. retains the title
Gibson-Lane holds Justice up and Michaels drops him with the King’s Landing. Walstreit lifts Ruff up to a vertical suplex position- and drops him with the Stock Market Plunge.
Lt. Katrina Atcheson of the Kansas Highway Patrol shoots into the ring and tasers Gibson-lane. She goes to taser Michaels but she gets bulldozed by a woman dressed in black…
AGE: 22 / HT: 6’ 2″ WT: 140 / HOME: Killeen, TX
FIN: McGill Bomb
The taser ends up on the ring floor. McGill pulls her up in a gutwrench position and in one motion spins her upside down, sits out, and drives Lt. Atcheson to the mat face first. And then Mr. McMann and SEC mouthpiece Phil Finebaum climb into the ring again followed by the CSPN film crew serenaded with a heavy dose of boos and jeers from the Kansas City crowd. McMann thanks them because they are doing exactly what he wants them to do.
Thunderbolt muses that this whole thing might have been pre-planned. Hall agrees.
McMann continues on and addresses Michaels and Gibson-Lane. He says the Kings of Old School gave Jackson Horne every opportunity to do the right thing and he chose to be with his broken down, rusted out wife instead of being there for Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane. McMann states he’s here for both of them and hands both men a check for their services. The SEC needs hired enforcers to have their backs and the Kings of Old School more than fit the bill. Michaels and Gibson-Lane shake McMann’s hand and then head to the back.
McMann turns to the ‘King of Greed’ Gordon Guyko and the MVW Tag Team champions. The first thing McMann does is offer an apology for the way that their previous association ended. McMann says he was wrong, that Banks and Walstreit have proven themselves to be champions, and the long talk they had BEFORE THE SHOW completely cleared the air between them. Guyko also notes that the incredibly generous check from Mr. McMann and CSPN help soothed some of the hurt feelings Banks and Walstreit still nursed over their past experience with the SEC. McMann asks Guyko if they have a deal. Guyko peeks back at Banks and Walstreit – they nod in the affirmative – Guyko then officially accepts and Banks and Walstreit are part of the new Sports Entertainment Corporation.
Finebaum shouts ‘my faction is better than your faction. The SEC rules Missouri Valley Wrestling’ before exiting with the rest of the group.
Thunderbolt runs down who is part of the new incarnation of the SEC:
-Heartland Champion Ultratron-5.1
-The Kings of Old School: Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane
-Tag Team Champions Corporate World, Inc.: P.M.C. Banks and Kirk Walstreit
WOMEN’S TITLE PREVIEW
Thunderbolt introduces a video vignette documenting what went down when Women’s Champion Sheline Carrigan won the belt from Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.
(VIDEO: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens © w/The Stevens Dynasty and Manager Ted Tebow vs. ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan with Coach E.J. Flack earlier tonight)
Carrigan gets to her feet. She stumbles forward. Barbosa-Stevens strikes. Turn – grab the back of her neck – sit out to the floor.
Johnny Suave: TOXIC STING!
Lisa moves to cover but…
Johnny Suave: WAIT! BO AND GEORGE STEVENS ARE DOWN!
Quick camera cut. Bo and George Stevens are down on the floor and bleeding. So is Barbosa-Stevens’s manager Ted Tebow.
Johnny Suave: WHAT THE HELL?
The crowd goes crazy. Lisa doesn’t pin Carrigan. She stops and notices something is up. She doesn’t see Bo or George or even Tebow.
But she does see…

Scottywood has his barbed-wire hockey stick – it’s dripping blood from the blade. He begins to step through the ropes- *WHAM*
Johnny Suave: SCOTT STEVENS JUST NAILED SCOTTYWOOD FROM BEHIND!

FIN: Toxic Sting
Stevens pulls Scottywood off the ring apron and slams him back first to the floor. The hockey stick goes flying and smacks into the barricade.
Johnny Suave: SCOTT STEVENS JUST YANKED SCOTTYWOOD OFF THE RING APRON AND THEY’RE BOTH THROWING DOWN RIGHT NOW ON THE FLOOR!
Stevens opens up a barrage of right hands on Scottywood. The Hardcore Artist rolls Stevens and he starts firing back.
MVW security come flying out from the back and race down to ringside.
Dazed, Lisa simply looks out at where her husband and Scottywood are brawling.
Carrigan, still half out of it, gets back to her feet. Running on pure instinct, she sees Barbosa-Stevens – goes up to her – and back body drops her.
Johnny Suave: CARRIGAN’S ALIVE! SHE JUST BACKDROPPED THE CHAMPION!
Scottywood and Stevens continue to beat the ever loving hell out of each other as they make their way back towards the stage. Security try to get in between them but are unable to break up the fight.
Carrigan pulls Barbosa-Stevens – who landed awkwardly and had the wind knocked out of her – to her feet and puts her head between her legs. She jumps up and over and spike the champion’s head to the mat.
Johnny Suave: CANADIAN DESTROYER!
Carrigan wastes no time. She rolls Barbosa-Stevens up for the cover.
THREE! Romanov calls for the bell.
Johnny Suave: NEW CHAMPION! NEW CHAMPION!
Carrigan flops onto her back and covers her eyes. Coach E.J. Flack nearly trips on the bottom rope but climbs in.
All the madness that permeated Lisa’s husband Scott Stevens-Scottywood High Octane Wrestling feud that spilled into Missouri Valley Wrestling is gone. Barbosa-Stevens should get a clean shot at Carrigan tonight without any outside forces intervening in the match. Can Sheline Carrigan prove beyond any doubt that she is the best woman wrestler in Missouri Valley Wrestling as she looks for validation of her controversial win over Barbosa-Stevens last month in Chicago. On the other side, Barbosa-Stevens has struggled in the ring since losing the title to Carrigan. Can she put everything that happened last month along with the chaos leading up to the October match and regain the form that put her at the top of the ladies’s division?
We’re about to find out. It’s time for the first main event of the night.

CO-MAIN EVENT #1/WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH:
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan ©
Carrigan and Lisa circle and tie up. Carrigan with the boot to the gut. She goes for a powerbomb right out of the gate but Lisa flips through and holds on for a sunset flip for a shock pinfall. One…t-…Carrigan kicks out but Barbosa-Stevens rides the momentum. Side kick by the former two time Women’s champion followed by a jumping crescent kick sends the current Women’s champion tumbling towards the ropes. Carrigan rolls on underneath to confer with E.J. Flack and to reset. Romanov starts the ten count and the Canadian Cyborg bides her time until she has to climb back into the ring.
Lisa picks up where she left off with a snapmare takedown followed by a stomp to the head. Barbosa-Stevens pulls Carrigan up – side slam by the challenger into a backbreaker. Carrigan bounces right up and throws a right hand – Lisa ducks, handsprings and redirects into a huricanrana! Another cover. One…two…Carrigan kicks out again- this time with authority. Barbosa-Stevens with a waistlock that transitions into standing switches and shoves. Finally, Carrigan boots her away to relieve the pressure. They tie up and Lisa goes for a leg but the champion grabs a headlock. Lisa slips out but Carrigan runs her over. Barbosa-Stevens kips up and headlocks Carrigan but the Canadian Cyborg powers out. Carrigan’s big boot misses. Lisa takes another waistlock and this time hits a belly to back suplex. Barbosa-Stevens stomps away on the fallen Carrigan- Sheline grabs her boot and twists sending Lisa down to the mat. Both women jump right back up and the fans cheer as both women stand off.
Circling again, collar and elbow tie up. Carrigan tries a belly to belly but Barbosa-Stevens blocks and takes her down to the mat with a hip toss. Side headlock by Barbosa-Stevens into a snap suplex. Carrigan tries to come back with a front kick- Barbosa-Stevens blocks and she counters with a sidekick that staggers the champion. Lisa places Carrigan’s head between her legs and lifts, sits out, and drives her to the mat with a sit-out powerbomb. Barbosa-Stevens hooks the legs. One…two…Carrigan again kicks out and for the first time exhibits outward signs of frustration. She charges in and goes for a snap suplex of her own- Barbosa-Stevens blocks and whips Carrigan into the corner. Boot to the gut doubles the Canadian Cyborg over and a scissors kick takes her to the mat. Barbosa-Stevens lays in the boots and now Carrigan is hanging on. Lisa doesn’t go for the cover choosing to line Carrigan up for a John Wooooo and driving her down into the opposite corner. Barbosa-Stevens swoops in for another cover. One…two…Carrigan grabs the bottom rope. Lisa stomps her foot knowing that she probably should have pulled Carrigan away from the corner first before making the cover.
Barbosa-Stevens waits for Carrigan to pull herself up and then strikes – and misses. Carrigan evades the Toxic Sting and ducks in for a fireman’s carry. Barbosa-Stevens shoves Carrigan back – boot to the gut – turn – grab the back of Carrigan’s neck and drop- TOXIC STING! The crowd stands up as we could have a new women’s champion. Barbosa-Stevens hooks the legs and waits for the count…that never comes. Why? Carrigan’s coach E.J. Flack has referee Corrina Romanov’s attention and she doesn’t see what’s just happened. Lisa bangs her fist on the mat again and shouts at Romanov. Finally she stands up with arms outstretched. Flack jumps back down from the ring apron- knowing that he’s bought precious time for his wrestler to pull herself together.
Carrigan up and Barbosa-Stevens chops the hell out of her. And again. And she spins around and connects with a backfist that causes spit to fly and Carrigan falls back to the ropes. Barbosa-Stevens runs at her. She goes for a clothesline but at the last second Carrigan back body drops Lisa up and over the top rope to the floor.
Carrigan slides out of the ring to confer with E.J. Flack. Rick Hall tells Thunderbolt he believes Barbosa-Stevens has dominated the match but may rue the fact that she was not able to put Carrigan away when she had a chance. Thunderbolt concurs.
Both women back in. Lisa tries to regain the initiative delivering a stiff forearm to Carrigan. Carrigan fires back with one of her own and both brawl back and forth with forearms. Lisa ducks to waistlock but Carrigan holds on and elbows free. Lisa off the ropes with somersaults to try a different offensive move but Carrigan stomps her down. Barbosa-Stevens fights out of a fireman’s carry and counters with a jawbreaker. Carrigan takes a couple steps back and then charges forward with a clothesline that decks Lisa. Carrigan follows with a right hand and then when Barbosa-Stevens gets back to her feet, she launches herself forward with a nasty right hand that sends her right back down, dazed and woozy. Carrigan covers. One…two…NO! Barbosa-Stevens gets the shoulder up very late in the count. Now it’s all Carrigan. She whips Barbosa-Stevens into the corner and follows with a boot to the leg. Carrigan steps back and places Lisa’s head between her legs and leaps forward and over- CANADIAN DESTROYER! But Sheline’s momentum carries her away from Barbosa-Stevens. Carrigan scrambles over to make the cover. One…two…LISA GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPES!
Thunderbolt Smith: Wow.
Carrigan can’t believe it. E.J. Flack can’t believe it. The crowd again is on their feet and wondering what’s going to happen next. Barbosa-Stevens down on the mat but she rolls underneath the ropes and out. Now it’s Lisa’s turn to confer with her counsel- Ted Tebow, Bo and George Stevens, at ringside. She buys herself time and when Romanov’s count hits eight, calmly slides back into the ring.
Carrigan immediately throws hands but Barbosa-Stevens goes low with a knee. She runs the ropes but runs right into a fireman’s carry. Lisa fights out again. Carrigan powers up for a belly to belly suplex that sends Barbosa-Stevens across the ring. She gets back up and Carrigan lays on the big boot to send her careening right out of the ring again. This time, Lisa grabs on to the rope to skin the cat so Carrigan goes to the apron. She rushes forward and drives her shoulder into Lisa’s midsection sending both women flying off the ring apron crashing down to the floor. The Kansas City fans fire up and rally up for “MVW! MVW!” Barbosa-Stevens took the worse of the spill. Carrigan drags her up and puts her back in the ring. Carrigan goes top rope, leaps, leg drop! Cover. One…two…thr-NO! ROPEBREAK! Thunderbolt says that was real close. Carrigan keeps cool and drags Barbosa-Stevens back to her feet. She goes to set Lisa up for another Canadian Destroyer but Barbosa-Stevens fights free. Lisa fires back, bobbing and weaving, firing off a last ditch strike fest that Carrigan mainly deflects. Carrigan blocks a kick and throws a right hand that Lisa ducks away from. Carrigan takes a waist lock. Barbosa-Stevens reverses and does a victory roll. One…tw- Carrigan kicks out. The champion connects with a mule kick that pushes Lisa back. Then she unleashes a falling pele kick that staggers Barbosa-Stevens before her legs give out from under her. Carrigan drags her up and places Lisa’s head between her legs. This time, she leaps up and over- CANADIAN DESTROYER!
Sheline Carrigan hits the Canadian Destroyer on Lisa Barbosa-Stevens
This time, Carrigan is where she needs to be, hooks the legs and rolls Barbosa-Stevens up. One…two…THREE! Romanov calls for the bell and that’s all.
WINNER AND STILL MVW WOMEN’S CHAMPION: ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan @ 18:42
Lisa Barbosa-Stevens came out on fire, determined to put the Chicago debacle behind her, and regain the women’s title. But with a little help from Coach E.J. Flack – his timely intervention stopped the momentum Barbosa-Stevens had built up early in the match and more importantly prevented her from delivering the early knockout – Sheline Carrigan steadied herself and found her footing as the match progressed to overcome Barbosa-Stevens’s challenge and retain the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s title.
After the match, Barbosa-Stevens and Carrigan’s eyes meet for a moment. Then with a nod, Lisa climbs out of the ring and heads to the back. Carrigan raises the women’s title belt in the air and circles so everyone in the building can see it.
BACKSTAGE-J.J. Bittinger Interview
Laura Bergman asks J.J. about tonight. Bittinger says he came to MVW and challenged Charlie Blackwell because he wants a fight. Blackwell the longest reigning MVW Champion in history. But tonight is the night his title reign comes to an end. Bittinger notes that Sheline Carrigan and Lisa Barbosa-Stevens just tore down the house. J.J. tells Laura he fully expects to go out there and do the exact same thing with Charlie Blackwell. This is why he wrestles. This is also why he came to MVW.

Security arrive and they dive in to separate the two men.
Thunderbolt asks if this is the night. Rick doesn’t know. But he does know that J.J. Bittinger has been everything he’s been built up to be. Rick states after attacking Blackwell in August, Bittinger got down to business and worked his way up the ladder. He concludes that tonight may very well be J.J. Bittinger’s night- but he still wouldn’t bet against Charlie Blackwell leaving Kansas City with the title belt.
What does Charlie Blackwell have to say?
BACKSTAGE: Charlie Blackwell Interview
Laura has the MVW Men’s Champion with her. Does Charlie have any final thoughts before he faces J.J. Bittinger? Blackwell says J.J. is tough. He got the better of him the last time they wrestled. But now that he knows exactly what Bittinger offers, Blackwell believes he can make the necessary adjustments needed to defeat him. The champion adds J.J. acts like he’s one of the toughest men in the world- and he probably is. But tonight is a big match and big matches are Charlie Blackwell’s wheelhouse. He adds he’s not called Charlie Wrestling for nothing. And with that, Blackwell takes his leave.

The ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann appears again with a CSPN film crew following and walks down to the ring with the ‘Mouthpiece of the SEC’ Phil Finebaum and Corporate Sports Program Nation CEO Mark Splitter, Poison Penny, Tori McGill, Kirk Walstreit, P.M.C. Banks, Bobby Ricky Michaels, and Marty Gibson-Lane. McMann climbs into the ring with Finebaum and Splitter. He asks Bittinger how he’s feeling tonight and tells him how impressed he is with what he’s done here tonight and what he 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 best of the best- the Sports Entertainment Corporation.
Bittinger tells McMann he’s impressed with the people he’s brought in to the SEC. But before he commits to anything, 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.
