BIG MONEY RESPONDS
We cut right away to a video of “Big Money” Darin Matthews lounging in beautiful, sunny Florida–the next leg of Mr. McMann’s gifted vacation to Matthews after securing the MVW Men’s Championship for the Sports Entertainment Corporation (SEC), throughly enjoying a Mango Margarita with women in bikinis sitting around him with hotel staff fanning them all. Sweat pours down the gloriously tan body of Matthews as he slowly removes his sunglasses from his face. He motions for everyone to step out of the shot as he sits up. He reaches for his towel and pats down his forehead for a minute. He slowly claps as the confidence oozes from his smile.
Darin Matthews: Bravo! Simply Bravo! Bill Dickinson won a hard fought match last Monday against Charlie Blackwell. He laid everything he had to seek retribution against me for my ‘actions.’
Matthews chuckles trying to hold back his pride and confidence. But Matthews has a terrible poker face. He reaches over for an orange, taking a bite, simple enjoying the perks of a vacation; one he rightfully feels he deserves after busting his ass hard for 15 years. Matthews doesn’t care about Dickinson’s statement.
Darin Matthews: I’m sorry. I just can’t. Bill, what I did to you was business. You wouldn’t understand that because you’re one of the good ole’ boys. You’ve spent your entire career fighting, biting, clawing your way up the ladder waiting for the big time to give you a call. I respect those traits really I do. I spent my entire career living that wrestling dream. I spent years of my life fighting like a good ole’ boy trying to earn the respect of wrestling organizations. I put my body on the line, giving fans my best in that ring. I laid my body on the line trying to prove myself to those fans, those promoters.
Darin’s disappointment shows. His head heavily hangs down just shaking, remember the years he spent as Zion climbing through the ranks of the Battle Arena to PWX to the big time with HOW. Every memory continuing to plague him. He plays those moments back to come to a revelation.
Darin Matthews: But let’s face it, Bill. We both should know that dream is a facade. I lived it Bill. I pissed on everyone who played politics in this business. I begrudgingly carried bags. I loathed giving props to people and my comments got back handed. I ruined my chances at my big redemption in HOW because I took those politics for granted. It wasn’t until Mr. McMann and the SEC took me under their wing and showed me the light where I understood everything. Simply put: it’s just business.
Highlights of the shot to Darin taking the lead pipe to Bill Dickinson’s head and Darin dropping Dickinson straight on his head stiffly while his somber, relaxed tone continues to carry over the numerous replays.
Darin Matthews: I did it to make my presence felt. I made my gravitas of my debut in MVW count. I made time stand still as I single-handedly disposed of the former MVW Men’s Champion in a record 2 minutes and 6 seconds. I destroyed and weakened the biggest threat by whatever means necessary. I crumbled and burned the very foundation Ray McAvay built MVW around to show the wrestling world my impact. I’ve single-handedly improve our ratings. People already have spent time on social media balking on Mr. McMann’s bold move to bring me in. I did this for MVW’s future. I brought you the gift of Big Money.
We cut back to Darin Matthews flicking through a stack of $100 dollar bills. He takes a giant whiff of the money basking in his own glory. With stars in his eyes, he looks straight toward the sky soaking in the glorious sights that Mr. McMann generously gave him.
Darin Matthews: The sky’s no longer our limit. Our pay now increases with me on the card with everyone glued on MVW’s product thanks to me, thanks to the SEC, and thanks to Mr. McMann’s vision for the future. Every tweet, click, mention of MVW promotes our product, promotes our shows, and makes us all richer. That’s a gift, not a personal shot. But…
Matthews pauses and sets his money down. His frown slowly fading. His eyes burn with intensity. Matthews cracks his knuckles and pops his neck. Playtime is over with his imminent match with Bill Dickinson coming up; his first title defense. The proverbial gloves come off. Now Darin Matthews means business. Darin’s tone goes from excited to serious in a matter of seconds.
Darin Matthews: You want to make this personal. Fine. We can make this personal. You want to threaten Big Money. You promise the crowd “you’ve got something in store for me.” We can play that game. You want to put targets on myself, Mr. McMann and our SEC family for revenge after we’ve given everyone in MVW our gift of me…that’s cool.
Cockily, Matthews stares down at his watch and taps it a few times indicating he’s going to make shorter work of Dickinson than he did Bittinger.
Darin Matthews: I won’t need 2 minutes and 6 seconds to destroy your career too. See, I’m not going to go out there and give those MVW fans match of the year candidates. I’m not in this to make people leave happy. I came to MVW strictly for business. Mr. McMann gave me a lucrative contract to destroy anyone in my path once I won the MVW Men’s Championship and you happen to stand in that path. I’m not here to put on a clinic and impress Ray. I’m here to wrestle, destroy and continue to make an impact. I’m here to ruin anyone who wants to stop the SEC. I’m here to bring prestige to MVW Men’s Championship to make it the premier belt in all of professional wrestling. And if I have to take the great MVW legend of Bill Dickinson out to pasture to do so. I will do it by any means necessary to keep this championship around my waist. And we both know, Bill, that what Big Money wants; Big Money gets.
Matthews picks up his MVW Men’s Championship and places it on his shoulder. He stands up and looks into the camera before walking off.
Darin Matthews: You’ll see soon enough, Bill, you’ll see soon enough.
The video ends and we cut back to Thunderbolt and Hall in the ring.
Thunderbolt welcomes everyone to Missouri Valley Wrestling’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland from Hastings, Minnesota. Thunderbolt does the quick introductions of him and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall and gets right to it. Two matches on tonight’s card and here they are:
#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-MEN’S TAG TEAM:
The Southern Boys: The Southern Boys-‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller and ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams
Truckin’ Average Company: Ken Worth-American Trucker and Brad Company
Rick Hall: The Southern Boys want nothing more than to get another crack at the Sports Entertainment Corporation and only Truckin’ Average Company stand in their way. You should never underestimate the Truckin’ Average Company – they’re good wrestlers – but I think the Southern Boys are on a mission to destroy the SEC.
#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH/WOMEN’S DIVISION
Rick Hall: Shizuko Yamazaki has risen fast up the ranks of the MVW Women’s division. She faced Women’s Champion Sheline Carrigan a couple weeks back and her inexperience showed. Now, she has to face off against Lisa Barbosa-Stevens – whom Yamazaki defeated in November to become the #1 contender. Barbosa-Stevens wants another crack at Carrigan after nearly winning back the women’s title belt in their last match at Evening of Champions. Yamazaki is ambitious and wants the belt. But Barbosa-Stevens is just as motivated and she’s been there a few more times.
Thunderbolt Smith: We’ll find out soon enough who will be earning title shots. Now. Remember this from last week?
(VIDEO: Last Week’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland)
Dickinson walks down the hall with the rest of the Southern Boys (‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler).
Kellie walks right up to him and tries to ask him a question. Dickinson mumbles he ain’t talking and moves on.
Kellie Burkowski: Come on Bill! I haven’t done a damn thing to you but yet you treat me as if I’ve done something horrible to you. Why won’t you talk to me and more so, what’s it going to take for you to talk to me?
To everyone’s great surprise, Dickinson stops. He turns around.
Bill Dickinson: I don’t trust folks with a microphone much. Meet up with us at the bar afterwards and we’ll see.
Kellie shoots back that if he wins tonight, she will. But then he gives her an interview.
Dickinson mulls the thought. He nods.
Bill Dickinson: Deal.
Thunderbolt confirms that Kellie Burkowski did in fact accompany the Southern Boys to the Bar Draft House in downtown Hastings after the show and they did in fact close the bar down.
(VIDEO: Last Week-Bar Draft House)
‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler, and Kellie Burkowski sit at round table. There’s two pitchers of beer in the middle of the table and shot glasses in front of everyone…
…Kellie does shots with the boys and more than holds her own with them…
…Dickinson and Miller do bad karoake…
…so does Kellie and the ‘Cowboy’…
…at the end of the night, Dickinson carries Kellie back to her hotel room and the Southern Boys make sure she safely returns to her hotel room -ring announcer Kimber Marshall shares Kellie’s hotel room and helps her into bed.
Cut back to the MVW broadcast center (this segment was taped yesterday)
Thunderbolt Smith: So that’s how that went. Now, we heard from the MVW Men’s Champion ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews earlier – I can tell you that we will also hear from ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson tonight as well. Why?
(VIDEO: Saturday night at the MVW House Show in Evansville, Indiana)
Kellie Burkowski walks down the hallway and someone calls out her name.
She stops and turns – it’s ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson.
‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson: Thanks for hanging out with us last week.
Kellie thanks him.
‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson: I owe you an interview. How about now?
Thunderbolt states we will have the interview with Bill Dickinson tonight before our main event. The first match of the night is next – after these commercial messages.

Cut back to the MVW Broadcast Center…
Thunderbolt annouces that Kellie Burkowski got her interview with ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and here it is.
‘REDNECK’ BILL DICKINSON INTERVIEW
Kellie has the #1 contender for the Men’s title with her.
Dickinson apologizes to Kellie for the way he’s treated her. He’s not a fan of bull-*BLEEP* and most interviewers that he’s encountered are looking for exactly that. Dickinson recounts how he roamed the independent wrestling companies in territories near and far.
Bill Dickinson: I ain’t never backed down from a fight from no one. I’ve taken on anyone and everyone. Been in the ring with some great wrestlers. Won a few matches…lost a bunch. But that’s okay.
Kellie asks about next week’s showdown with the new champion ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews. Dickinson tells her that Matthews’s accomplishments are impressive. But now he’s down here in the meat grinder. Young wrestlers looking to learn their craft. Wrestlers like Dickinson looking for a chance to move up.
Bill Dickinson: The only reason Matthews is down here is because the so-called ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann found out it’s hard to be a genius without good wrestlers in your faction. That’s why he splashed the cash to bring Matthews in.
McMann didn’t have the balls to stick with him and the other Southern Boys because they weren’t ‘corporate’ enough. He’s tried and failed repeatedly. Dickinson adds McMann knows this is his last chance- that Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Programming Nation CEO Mark Splitter won’t give him any more money if McMann fails this time.
Kellie asks Dickinson what winning the title would mean to him.
Bill Dickinson: It means you’re the best of the best. That’s what I want.

Thunderbolt says goodbye and leaves us with one last film clip from last Saturday night’s house show in Evansville, Indiana
(VIDEO: Evansville, IN House Show last Saturday Night)
Following ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson’s win over Bullethead, the crowd pops.
New MVW Men’s Champion ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews runs down and smacks Dickinson from behind with a lead pipe. This time though, Dickinson senses danger and turns at the last second and doesn’t get the full force.
A pull apart brawl follows.
The leader of the SEC ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann screams at Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane to get Matthews away from Dickinson and out of the ring to ‘protect the SEC’s major investment.’
