(VIDEO: 2/1/2020 Evansville, IN House Show)

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.’


Thunderbolt Smith: Welcome to the Chisholm Trail Coliseum for tonight’s edition of Missouri Valley Wrestling’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv!


Thunderbolt introduces himself and his broadcast partner ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall and gets right to it.

Hall and Thunderbolt
Rick Hall and Thunderbolt Smith

Thunderbolt Smith: Tonight, the MVW Men’s title is on the line as ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews from the SEC faces a very pissed off ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson of the Southern Boys.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, you saw the video from last week’s Evansville house show. You saw how quickly ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann got Darin Matthews out of that ring. ‘Big Money’ is a big deal to the Sports Entertainment Corporation. He is a blue chip wrestler down here and with him heading the faction and holding the Men’s title that makes the SEC THE faction here in Missouri Valley Wrestling. But Bill Dickinson a dangerous man and I believe deep down Darin Matthews knows it.

Thunderbolt also reviews the other two matches in the show. First, the Men’s Tag Team battle which will be another battle between the SEC and the Southern Boys.

Rick Hall: These two team just don’t like each other. There’s a lot of bad blood between them right now and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if the match – and the men’s title match as well – ended in some sort of disqualification – countout finish.

Then, Thunderbolt talks about the Women’s title match between the champion ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan and the challenger – two time Women’s champion Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.

Rick Hall: Lisa lost the belt due to outside interference in November and then came back and wrestled a terrific match against Carrigan at Night of Champions last month only to be done in by an assist from Carrigan’s manager E.J. Flack. But Carrigan is just hitting her stride as champion and Barbosa-Stevens is extremely motivated to win that title back. This is going to be good.

Thunderbolt sends it back to Kellie Burkowski who has Lisa Barbosa-Stevens with her along with the Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens) and her manager Ted Tebow.

Lisa looks focused. Kellie asks her about tonight. Lisa states she is approaching tonight as if it’s the last time she’ll ever set foot in the ring. She wants to make sure she leaves everything in the ring tonight.

Then she has something she wants to say to Sheline Carrigan.

Lisa Barbosa-Stevens: Sheline. You won the title thanks to some bull*BLEEP* from Scottywood. You retained the title against me with a little help from your Garthok Narfle-ler or whatever E.J. Flack is. But you haven’t beat me cleanly yet. We know who’s lurking in the horizon- Christa Carmondy and the SEC. You know that both of us are going to have to up our game considerably- no matter who’s holding on to the Women’s title belt. So let’s start tonight. No bull*BLEEP*. No shenanigans. Just our best effort.

Barbosa-Stevens nods and then heads to the back.

Bo Stevens leans in to say something to Kellie.

Bo Stevens: BO-lieve!

Ted Tebow drops to one knee and bows his head while placing his balled left fist against his forehead (aka…‘Tebows’).

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt says they are ready in the ring for match number one of the night. He sends it to ring announcer Kimber Marshall.

The crowd is on their feet already as referee Ron Martin finishes up the pre-match check on all four wrestlers.

Martin’s satisfied and makes sure that both team has just one person in the ring to start the match.

Thunderbolt asks Hall for last thoughts.

Rick Hall: It’s been said before but it bears saying again. These two teams don’t like each other. This is going to be a powderkeg.

Thunderbolt notes no ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews at ringside.

Rick Hall: No surprise. Mr. McMann probably has him back in the SEC’s dressing room covered in bubble wrap. I’m a little surprised that Dickinson is at ringside though.

Thunderbolt Smith: Really?

Rick Hall: No. Not really.

The introductions made, the belts raised, Martin calls for the bell.


Thunderbolt Smith: There’s the bell and we are under way.

Tensions are running high. There are actually some Sports Entertainment Corporation supporters in Enid, Oklahoma as some of them duel back and forth with the supporters of the Southern Boys.

It’s Miller and Banks to start and they slowly circle. Banks braces as he and Miller tie up. Miller powers Banks back. Banks spins it around and puts Miller on the ropes. Martin makes the count and Banks lets go at 4. Miller backs away.

The fans of Enid cheer and again duel with each other. Miller and Banks circle again. Tie up, Banks takes a headlock – Miller throws big body shots and powers out. Action speeding up. Miller runs the ropes – hurdles Banks and then arm-drags him down! Banks up – Miller arm-drags him again and clamps on an armlock. Banks moves up and around to escape. The two go forward and lock up again. Tie up with knuckle locks. Banks steps in to get the wristlock and turns it into a wrench. Banks then goes hammerlock. Miller slips around to reverse. Miller shifts to a headlock and takedown. Banks escapes into a headscissors – no, Miller pops out and fans cheer as the two have a standoff.

Thunderbolt Smith: So far, so good.

Rick Hall: It’s early. Both teams are feeling each other out.

Thunderbolt Smith: We’ll be back with more action right here on HOTv after these commercial messages.

Cut back to the action…

…Miller pulls Banks towards the Southern Boys corner and tags in the Dangerous one- Dan Williams. Williams comes in and gives Banks’s arm an ax handle. Then another one. He wrenches Banks’s arm and tags back to Miller. Williams hops up before he leaves and hits a flying ax handle. Martin gets Williams to the outside while Miller keeps his eyes on Walstreit after taking Banks’s arm. Now it’s Miller who wrenches. Quick tag back to Williams and Miller exits.

Thunderbolt Smith: Well, this has so far been a reasonably technical match without the brawling.

Rick Hall: Yeah, it’s coming Thunderbolt- it’s coming.

Williams climbs up to the top rope as the fans build anticipation for another flying ax handles. Walstreit runs in – Williams intercepts – Miller and Banks in the ring and The Southern Boys throw hands on The SEC. Then Miller and Williams double team front kicks followed by double bulldogs on the SEC and the crowd pops!

Thunderbolt Smith: Now here we go.

The fans fire up and get to their feet. The SEC bail out but Miller runs the ropes and aims at Walstreit and Williams does the same and aims at Banks. They leap – DOUBLE Plancha to the floor! Fans fire up more when the SEC’s hired guns Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane approach Miller but ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson come over to back their teammate up.

Rick Hall: It’s that close Thunderbolt. I can see the tinderbox going up soon.

Williams puts Banks in and runs corner to corner for a big clothesline. Then he hops up again, for a FLYING right hand. Cover- hook of the legs.


Tw-Banks kicks out.

Williams keeps his cool and brings Banks up to whip – Banks reverses – Williams holds ropes. He has to dodge and fight off Walstreit though. That allows Banks to whip Williams to the ropes – Williams ducks on the return, but Walstreit trips Williams up. Walstreit drags Williams out of the ring to ram into railing! Miller comes flying around the way – Walstreit whips him to the barricade.

Thunderbolt Smith: All four men outside!

Rick Hall: Ron Martin has to get a hold of this now or else he’s going to lose this match.

Martin reprimands both teams from inside the ring. That doesn’t stop Walstreit from scoop slamming Williams on the floor!

Then it breaks out. Butler and Dickinson tackle Walstreit. Michaels and Gibson-Lane join in and all four men brawl on the outside.

Banks blindsides Butler from behind. Then…

Thunderbolt Smith: Butler gets tossed over the barricade!

Dickinson low blows Gibson-Lane. Guess what happens next?

Thunderbolt Smith: Now Gibson-Lane gets thrown over the barricade!

Rick Hall: Ron Martin has lost this match.

Martin finally calls for the bell and he throws out the match.


Dickinson squares up with Michaels. Williams and Walstreit go at it. Miller and Banks are unloading heavy right hand bombs on the floor.

Thunderbolt Smith: Referee Ron Martin has thrown out the match but both teams continue to go at it.

Rick Hall: Bill Dickinson had better be careful. He still has a title challenge against ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews later on tonight and he can’t afford to get hurt.

As if on cue, MVW security arrive on the scene and try to pull the two teams apart.

Thunderbolt Smith: Security is here and they will try to restore some order here.

Rick Hall: It may take them a few moments.

Thunderbolt announces that Kellie Burkowski has the Women’s champion backstage and we cut there…

Kellie Burkowski
Backstage Interview Kellie Burkowski

Kellie’s first question- how important is it that Sheline gets a ‘clean’ win over Lisa Barbosa-Stevens tonight?

E.J. Flack almost seems offended with the question. He states that Carrigan has worked extraordinarily hard to get back to where she is. Flack says she’s welcomed the challenges – eaten challenges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – NARFLE’d the GARTHOCK! Flack rejects the premise that Sheline Carrigan needs a clean win tonight to validate her title run.

E.J. Flack: Hope. Energy. Purpose. That’s what Narfling the Garthok means. When the going gets tough, when the big monster thingy with the big sharp teeth stares you down, you fight back – you NARFLE THE GARTHOK! Tonight, Sheline Carrigan will do exactly that. Lisa Barbosa-Stevens is really good. But tonight, Carrigan will prove just how worthy of a champion she is when she Narfles her Garthok and leaves the ring as the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion.

Kellie Burkowski: Thank you and good luck tonight.

Carrigan nods her head.


Cut back to the broadcast table…

Thunderbolt notes that security has finally restored order and we are ready to go for our second match of the night.

Carrigan with a waistlock. She slams Barbosa-Stevens down – flips Barbosa-Stevens over. Barbosa-Stevens scrambles back to her but Carrigan belly to belly suplexes her – Barbosa-Stevens flips through but Carrigan Penalty Kicks her down.

Cut back to the match…

…Barbosa-Stevens has Carrigan in the Tree of Woe. PENALTY KICK! Carrigan writhes and flounders. Barbosa-Stevens reacts fast for a cover…


Tw- Carrigan kicks out.

Thunderbolt Smith: So far, Lisa Barbosa-Stevens has been the aggressor and Sheline Carrigan’s on the defensive.

Rick Hall: This is the same pattern as the last match between these two. The question is can Barbosa-Stevens continue this relentless attack and wear down the champion.

Barbosa-Stevens stomp’s Carrigan’s face! Referee Corrina Romanov tries to back her off but she comes back lays more kicks in. Barbosa-Stevens drags her up for a snapmare – then kicks Carrigan in the back – clubs her while she’s down. Carrigan goes after the legs but Barbosa-Stevens evades and hits a leg-splitting leg drop! Barbosa-Stevens hooks the legs…


Tw- Carrigan gets a shoulder up.

Barbosa-Stevens with a forearm shot. Carrigan with one of her own. Barbosa-Stevens hits back! Then Carrigan – Barbosa-Stevens – Carrigan – and back again. Then Carrigan DECKS Barbosa-Stevens with a right hand. Carrigan brings Barbosa-Stevens up to a corner and pulls the arms against ropes. The ref tries to back Carrigan off – she ignores her and nails Barbosa-Stevens with a chop. Barbosa-Stevens chops Carrigan back and throws a big forearm. Barbosa-Stevens drop toehold Carrigan into the turnbuckles. Carrigan back up and runs right into a tilt-o-whirl facebuster and the crowd pops and gets on their feet.

Thunderbolt Smith: WHAT A MOVE!

Rick Hall: Carrigan’s starting to get frustrated. She walked right into that one.

Carrigan back up – boot to the gut – CANADIAN DESTROYER! Barbosa-Stevens is down.

Thunderbolt Smith: WHERE DID THAT COME FROM!

But Barbosa-Stevens rolls and desperately grabs at and latches on to the bottom rope.

Rick Hall: Wow! Carrigan hit that move out of nowhere but Barbosa-Stevens is going to survive because she rolled in the right direction and got the bottom rope.

Barbosa-Stevens tries to gather herself as Carrigan glares over at her. Carrigan drags Barbosa-Stevens up for a belly to belly suplex but Barbosa-Stevens lands on her feet. Barbosa-Stevens shoves and hits a rebound German Suplex. Barbosa-Stevens rocks Carrigan with a right hand and throws body shots. Carrigan driven back to the ropes – Barbosa-Stevens kick and kicks and kicks her some more – Barbosa-Stevens and Carrigan exchange haymakers – Carrigan connects with big boot to the gut and Barbosa-Stevens has to catch her breath. Carrigan tries to set her up for another Canadian Destroyer – Barbosa-Stevens pushes back and enziguris Carrigan. Carrigan steps back and then tackles Barbosa-Stevens. Both women are down but the fans are on their feet. Carrigan has a bit of blood flowing from her forehead as she and Barbosa-Stevens get back up. Carrigan chops her – Barbosa-Stevens chops back! Carrigan – Barbosa-Stevens – Carrigan headbutts Barbosa-Stevens and then goes up the corner, only for her top rope elbow to be turned into a top rope armdrag takedown by Barbosa-Stevens. Cover…



T-Carrigan kicks out and lives and Barbosa-Stevens takes a deep breath.

Thunderbolt Smith: It’s come down to who wants it more in what’s been a fast paced action packed match.

Rick Hall: We have not been disappointed with this one. Both women are giving everything they’ve got for the Women’s title.

Barbosa-Stevens drags Carrigan to a drop zone but Carrigan rakes the eyes and goes up top from that corner. Carrigan leaps – Barbosa-Stevens catches her in the gut with a high boot – spin – TOXIC STING! Carrigan down.


Rick Hall: ANKLE LOCK!

Not going right for the pinfall, Barbosa-Stevens goes submission route with the Ankle Lock.

Carrigan screams out in pain and tries to get to the ropes – Barbosa-Stevens isn’t letting her near them.

Thunderbolt Smith: THERE’S NO ESCAPE- WHAT!

Coach E.J. Flack slides into the ring and pushes Barbosa-Stevens down. Hold broken. Referee Corrina Romanov immediately calls for the bell!



Kimber Marshall in the ring.

WINNER VIA DQ: Lisa Barbosa-Stevens @ 12:03 (edited to 10:03 for television)- Sheline Carrigan retains the Women’s title.

The crowd does not like that and start booing.

Barbosa-Stevens sits up and is livid. But before she can react…

The Stevens Dynasty
Bo Stevens
HT: 6’ 1” WT: 234 / HOME: Waco, TX
George Stevens
HT: 6’ 5” WT: 445 / HOME: Texarkana, TX

Thunderbolt Smith: Oh oh.

The Stevens hit the ring and Bo takes E.J. Flack down.

George then lifts him up…and powerbombs Flack to the mat.

Carrigan tries to roll out of the ring. Barbosa-Stevens pulls her to the middle of the ring and drives a big boot to the gut. She pulls Carrigan up to her feet – spins around – TOXIC STING!

Thunderbolt Smith: Both Sheline Carrigan and E.J. Flack have been laid out in the middle of the ring.

Rick Hall: Lisa wins the match but Sheline’s still leaves as the Women’s champion. E.J. Flack paid the price but he saved her title.

The camera follows a fuming Lisa Barbosa-Stevens and the Stevens Dynasty as they depart to the back.

Thunderbolt throws it backstage to Kellie Burkowski.

Kellie has Bill Dickinson flanked by the rest of the Southern Boys (‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams, ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler).

Kellie asks about tonight’s match against ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews. Dickinson keeps it short and sweet without his usual nasty, snarly tone.

Bill Dickinson: Kellie, after what happened earlier tonight and what Matthews did last month to me, all I’m going to say is I’ll do my talking in the ring. Thanks.

The Southern Boys head towards the ring.

We cut backstage to Big Money Darin Matthews’ locker room.  He’s seen preparing for his match with “Redneck” Bill Dickinson before he stands up and stares at the camera rather determined.  Matthews proudly wears his MVW Men’s Heavyweight Championship on his shoulder as he moves toward the camera, donning on his new gear which is gold with “BIG MONEY” written on the backside with dollar signs in shimmering green print on his front legs.  Matthews confidently beams his smile as he walks up to the camera, hyping up tonight’s match.

Darin Matthews:  Tonight’s the night when you see Big Money in action since Big Money brought prestige back to the MVW Men’s Heavyweight Championship.  My last match went on for 2 minutes and 6 seconds and well; Big Money is targeting this to end in short fashion tonight.  I’m targeting 2 minutes flat.  Because the Redneck isn’t worth the extra 6 seconds of Big Money’s time…

Cocky yet confident Matthews’ laughter echoes throughout the walls of his locker room.  He polishes his big Gold belt as he places his SEC wrist bands on his hands.

Darin Matthews:  Tonight’s about business.  Tonight, I prove to the world why they should have focused on me after all these years.  Why I am the Tyrant of the Territories, the High Ruler of High Octane, the Aristocrat of Atlantic City.  Everywhere I go; businessmen want my services.  They pay me extravagant wages.  They beg for me.  And who wouldn’t?  I’ve won 23 different championships in my career lining it with diversity.  While people like “Redneck” Bill Dickinson just stay stagnant.

Darin Matthews shakes his head in disappointment of Bill’s resume and career.

Darin Matthews:  Sure, the Redneck has respect from all his peers and the fans, but I don’t need that anymore.  I have family in Mr. McMann.  He takes care of me.  He provides me the working environment I’ve craved for years.  I’m not paid to make friends.  I’m paid to win championships, diversify my wrestling portfolio, and dominate anyone I step into the ring against.  Tonight’s no different.

The camera zooms behind Darin Matthews to show the lead pipe he’s used on Bill a couple times sitting in the background as he smiles.  He picks it up and gazes at it proudly as he passionately speaks.

Darin Matthews:  Sure, I’ve taken shortcuts but….


Darin Matthews:  I don’t need them to put you away Dickinson.   I’ve done what I needed to do to cast doubts.  I played your emotions like a fiddle.  You’ve let your anger set in and control you blindly.  You can’t see straight.  You just want to beat us SEC guys down because you’re jealous it’s not you chosen.  We didn’t do it the ‘Old School Territory” way.  HA!    That way keeps everyone wrestling in bingo halls.  It keeps the fans away from social media openly discussing your product.

Matthews kicks the pipe underneath his lockers and moves closer to the camera pointing at his championship.

Darin Matthews:  It holds you back from winning championships like I did.  That’s why I gave it up.  That nice, loveable, old-fashioned hard-working guy style kept me from becoming what I truly should have become years ago:  The Tyrant of the Territories.  Tonight, you represent the old me:  the Darin Zion of the world.  You’re a go-getter attitude, plucky, tenacious attitude sickens me.  And when I take a look me starring across the ring from me; I’m gonna destroy it and leave it for dead.    I’m going to keep this belt within the ranks of the SEC and finally embrace the man I now am.

The scene fades to black as Darin prepares to walk toward the ring for his match.

Cut back to the broadcast desk…

Thunderbolt says it’s time.

*White Trash* – Chris Janson

‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson strolls out on stage along with Miller, Williams, and Butler.

He pauses as the fans cheer for him (Dickinson is still getting used to that) and then makes his way down to the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: Bill Dickinson almost looks relaxed tonight. Serene. Calm.

Rick Hall: Or he’s got something up his sleeve.

*Bow Down*- I Prevail

Thunderbolt Smith: And here comes the champion.

‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews joins the others on stage and gets a rousing round of boos from the crowd.

Matthews defiantly holds up the MVW Men’s title belt while Mr. McMann and Phil Finebaum point at it. The SEC is milking this for all its worth as the CSPN camera film every second on it.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right. We are going into overtime tonight on HOTv which means we will take one more commercial break. We will have this match right after this on HOTv.


SCENE: the back yard.

A man holds a garden hose in his right hand and is filling up his above ground pool with water. In his other hand, he holds his cell phone and looks down at it- seemingly confused and perplexed.

Announcer: This is Tim. He thinks you have to be a mastermind to figure out how to do his own taxes.

A large brown wooden fence encloses the yard. The right wooden gate opens up and Ray McAvay’s manager, ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido, enters Tim’s back yard. (GRAPHIC: “’No Frills’ Chris Escondido, professional wrestler manager)

Announcer: So we flew in pro wrestling mastermind ‘No Frill’s’ Chris Escondido to help him.

Escondido peers over Tim’s shoulder to look at his cell phone.

Escondido: Dude. What does it say there?

Close up of Tim’s phone. ‘Did you buy a home?’ Press here.

Tim: It says…did you buy a home?

Escondido: Did you buy a home?

Tim: Ummm…

Out of nowhere, ‘Tin Cup’ Ray McAvay runs in and whacks Tim in the back with a Singapore cane.


Escondido: Then I’d press there.

Tim: There?



Tim, in immense pain and anguish, presses the button. The display turns to a green check mark to indicate that he was successful and a message appears that reads: ‘Congrats, you get a big tax break…and a trip to the emergency room.

Tim: Huh?



Escondido nods down at Tim who’s fallen to his knees in excruciating pain.

Escondido: Okay then.

He then turns and walks away.

Tim: Thanks.

[Graphic on screen: ‘It doesn’t take a *BLEEP*-ing genius to do your taxes.’ Tim looks down at his phone and winces in pain from the Singapore caneshots.]

Announcer: Jetfuel Extreme Do It Yourself Tax. Taxes done to the extreme.




The SEC procession has finally started down the aisle and is about halfway to the ring.

Rick Hall: Definite mind games being played here by Mr. McMann and the SEC.

Thunderbolt agrees. He notes the three Southern Boys in the ring glaring down on the SEC as they take their sweet time getting to the ring.

Rick Hall: Wait a minute? Where’s Bill-

The crowd erupts.


Thunderbolt Smith: BILL DICKINSON!


And all hell breaks loose.


Rick Hall: WOW! Get that replay up!


After ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews passes by a row of seats – Bill Dickinson stands up – hops the barricade – and blasts him in the back with a lead pipe…

McMann turns and his face contorts when he sees Matthews falling to the floor with Bill Dickinson and the lead pipe standing over him.

Williams, Miller, and Butler jumps the SEC and there’s a big fight in the aisle.


McMann stands over the fallen Matthews as the SEC’s special medical crew sprints to the ring with a stretcher.


Matthews is loaded up into the stretcher and whisked away with Mr. McMann and Phil Finebaum following passing the MVW Security crew who are back up for a second time tonight to break up a fight between the SEC and the Southern Boys.

Security wades in and starts pulling both sides apart.

And then MVW CEO Ray McAvay comes out on stage. He’s shaking his head and watching the security boys restore some semblance of order.

Thunderbolt Smith: Ray McAvay is on the stage and I believe he’s going to have something to say.

He does.

Ray McAvay: Okay. I’m not going to take a lot of time here because we’ve already overrun our time spot on HOTv and we need to wrap this up. Hey guys. Do you think you’ve got this out of your systems now?

McAvay pauses as the din on the floor quiets down.

Ray McAvay: This is not how I want our title matches to go so this is what we’re going to do. In two weeks in Terre Haute, Indiana, we’re going to do this again. Men’s tag team title- the SEC will take on the Southern Boys. Men’s title- ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews will face ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson. The stipulation for the night will be no one will be allowed at ringside.   Anyone from any faction – the SEC or Southern Boys – who does will automatically disqualify their wrestler. Oh, one more thing – the title WILL change hands in the event of a DQ.

Thunderbolt Smith: WHOA!

The Men’s Tag Team Champions Kirk Walstreit and P.M.C. Banks are NOT happy with McAvay’s ruling.

The Southern Boys are.

Thunderbolt Smith: Two weeks in Terre Haute. We will have a rematch for the Men’s Tag Team and Men’s title-


McMann and Finebaum race back on stage and they are furious with Ray McAvay. They are absolutely incensed that Matthews and Walstreit/Banks will have to defend their title again in two weeks and they unload a verbal barrage on the non-plussed McAvay who just stands there and listens.

Thunderbolt quickly wraps up the show and we will see you all next week on HOTv.
