Cut right to Thunderbolt Smith and Rick Hall in the middle of the ring.

The crowd is on their feet and making lots of noise.

Thunderbolt Smith: Hello and welcome to Missouri Valley Wrestling’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland on HOTv!


Thunderbolt Smith: Tonight, we are at the Adhearn Arena in Manhattan, Kansas for a night of minor league wrestling here in the heartland. With me as always, ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall . . .

Rick gives an Orange Cassidy style half-assed wave.

Rick Hall: Hey.

Thunderbolt Smith: . . .and tonight, we are ramping up for next week’s women’s title match between the champion Lisa Barbosa-Stevens and the challenger from the Sports Entertainment Corporation- Christa Carmondy. Carmondy earned the title shot with a . . .slightly . . . controversial win over ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan.

(REPLAY: Christa Carmondy vs. Sheline Carrigan- Last Week)

Knife-edged chop to the throat. Carrigan lurches forward – Carmondy lifts the knee to the midsection. She slips behind Carrigan – ABDOMINAL STRETCH!

E.J. Flack jumps on the apron. Romanov sees him and steps towards him. Poison Penny sneaks in on all fours. She grabs Carrigan’s face with both hands – leans in

Thunderbolt Smith: POISON KISS!

It’s not long. But it’s enough. Carmondy releases the hold and Carrigan collapses to the mat – spitting green stuff out of her mouth.   The crowd vents their displeasure at the SEC.

Carmondy drags Carrigan up – takes her left arm between Carrigan’s legs – lift – pumphandle – death valley driver to the mat.

Thunderbolt Smith: MEAN GIRL CRUSH!







Rick Hall: This loss will not tamp down the anger Carrigan still feels towards Christa Carmondy for screwing her out of the Women’s title. Besides Poison Penny interjecting herself into the match, Jackson C. Horne and Victoria McGill also interfered. They stopped Carrigan from finishing Christa off with the Canadian Destroyer and then pulled down the top rope to send Carrigan flying out of the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: This one isn’t over yet. But the big story from last week, ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews held off a stubborn Average Joe to retain the MVW Men’s title in a match that lasted over twenty minutes. Here’s how the match ended.

(REPLAY: ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews © vs. Average Joe- last week)

Rick Hall: Just when you thought Average Joe was dead, he somehow wills himself back into the match.

The fans are on their feet now. Average Joe goes for it and fireman’s carries Matthews – Matthews elbows him over and over. Average Joe shifts – AVERAGE SLAM – Matthews AGAIN flips through and stumbles back to the ropes. Again Average Joe comes forward – waistlock – lift – Matthews blocks. , The champion pries his way out – standing switch back – Matthews finally elbows out. He spins around – Fireman’s Carry – Matthews swings his foot up.

Thunderbolt Smith: DEVASTATION KICK!

Average Joe is out on his feet. Matthews tackles. Cover.






Thunderbolt Smith: Which led to this . . .

(REPLAY: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson Stare Down- last week)

Matthews makes his way towards the back. But there’s someone waiting for him at the stage.

Bill Dickinson
‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson “The 330 Pound Southern Brawler”

Matthews stops dead in his tracks.

Dickinson is flanked by the rest of the Southern Boys: ‘Dastardly’ Dave Miller, ‘Dangerous’ Dan Williams (both wearing their MVW Tag Team title belts), and ‘Cowboy’ Dan Butler (wearing his Heartland title belt).

Dickinson points at Matthews and mouths ‘I’m coming for you’ as the show ends.


Rick Hall: I expect this to heat up soon. No offense to Average Joe who put forth one hell of a challenge to Darin Matthews last week, but the match EVERYONE wants to see is Matthews versus Dickinson. And we are potentially three weeks away from seeing them fight it out once and for all.

Thunderbolt Smith: Thanks Rick as always. Let’s run down tonight’s show. First, we’re going to get a look at a new wrestler with plenty of experience- Rick Brennan.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, Rick Brennan is forty-eight years young. He got into wrestling a little late in the game but he impressed Ray McAvay enough for him to give him this shot. Brennan has a very interesting moveset which we will see later on in his match.

Thunderbolt Smith: That he does. Also on tonight’s show, our good friend and someone who just can’t stay out of the wrestling spotlight, Dawn McGill.

Rick Hall: ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann brought back McGill’s estranged husband- legendary manager and wrestling entrepreneur Jackson C. Horne to serve as the SEC’s Chief of Security. Horne shot his mouth off about McGill three weeks ago and as they say- we have a developing situation.


*3/9 Wrestling Night in the Heartland- Horne Sounds Off*

Horne wants to say a few things. McMann hands him the microphone.

Jackson Horne: First off, I want to thank Mr. McMann for giving me this opportunity. A few months back, I made a choice to focus on what turned out to be a trainwreck of a marriage over my boys- Bobby Ricky Michaels and Marty Gibson-Lane. That turned out to be a colossal mistake.

The crowd begins to boo Horne.

Thunderbolt Smith: And in case you’re wondering what the hell Horne’s talking about, he filed divorce papers against Dawn McGill- who ended up checking herself into a hospital for a potential relapse of her alcohol issues.

*3/23-Wrestling Night in the Heartland- Dawn Fights Back*


Thunderbolt Smith: Wait a minute!

McGill flies down to the ring with a Singapore cane.


Down goes Michaels.


Down goes Gibson-Lane.

McGill turns her attention to Jackson C. Horne- Horne becomes very uncomfortable all of a sudden.

Thunderbolt Smith: These two are married. Horne filed for divorce. And this could get very interesting real-

Rick Hall: No, Horne’s making a run for it.

Horne hops off the apron and takes off sprinting to the back.


Thunderbolt Smith: We will see what Dawn has to say about her soon-to-be ex-husband. We will also have the following matches tonight:

-EIGHT MAN TAG TEAM MATCH- The Southern Boys and The Sports Entertainment Corporation.

-MAIN EVENT: Women’s Champion Lisa Barbosa-Stevens vs. ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris

Rick Hall: For the record, I love Leah’s entrance.

Thunderbolt Smith: Me, too. But first, here’s Kimber Marshall. She’ll introduce our first match of the night.

Kimber steps in and Thunderbolt and Hall exit the ring.

Kimber Marshall: Our first match is one fall . . .

Crowd: ONE fall.

Kimber Marshall: . . . with a fifteen minute time limit. Already in the ring – from Tyron, South Carolina – please welcome BUCKSHOT HENDERSON!

Henderson takes two steps towards the center of the ring and raises his hand.

Kimber Marshall: And his opponent.

*”City Blues”- Brian Wilson*

The Wilson Pickett-ish intro to the song – complete with horns – plays over the PA as Rick Brennan walks out on stage.

Brennan pauses and then makes his way down to the ring.

Kimber finishes the introduction.

Rick Brennan
AGE: 48 / HT: 6’ 4” WT: 285 / Queens, NY
FIN: The Iron Claw

Thunderbolt Smith: Rick Brennan climbing into the ring. Referee Ron Martin checks both men out.


Thunderbolt Smith: And we are underway.







1st Minute:
Both men come out. Brennan is a little plodding. Henderson circles to his left.

Lock up. Brennan’s strength is evident. Henderson pushed to the corner. Martin calls for a break.

Henderson circles again – Brennan plods forward. Lock up. Henderson side headlock.

Brennan escapes – Henderson sent to the ropes. Waistlock – lift – Spinebuster by Brennan – Neckbreaker.

2nd Minute:
Brennan sends Henderson to the ropes- Iron Claw.

Thunderbolt Smith: Here we go. This is his move.

Henderson shakes – Brennan squeezes hard – uses his strength to force Henderson down to a knee.

Martin asks if he quits. Henderson says no.

Struggling, Henderson fights.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right. We will be back with more right after these messages on HOTv.

Thunderbolt Smith: And we’re back.

5th Minute:
Henderson still stuck in the Iron Claw.

Rick Hall: Buckshot has had little offense in this match. Brennan is pretty much everything as advertised. He works a very slow pace and relies exclusively on the Iron Claw.

Brennan whips Henderson to the ropes – waistlock on the return – lift – Spinebuster.

Cover. 1 . . . 2 . . .Henderson just gets a shoulder up. Iron Claw again.

Thunderbolt Smith: Brennan is just relentless with that hold.

Rick Hall: Henderson is starting to fade now.

6th Minute:
Henderson’s movement slow considerably. Ron Martin asks if he quits – Henderson says no.

Shoulders down though. 1 . . . 2 . . . Henderson just gets the shoulder up.

Thunderbolt Smith: This is hard to watch but Brennan has been effective using the Iron Claw.

Finally, Henderson can’t take it any more.  He taps. Martin calls for the bell.


Thunderbolt Smith: And that’s going to do it. Buckshot Henderson finally taps out and Rick Brennan is going to win his debut MVW match.

WINNER: Rick Brennan at 5:50 (edited to 3:50 for television)

Rick Hall: I’ll give Buckshot credit. He hung in there and tried to fight his way through the Iron Claw. But Brennan was relentless and he gets a win in his first MVW match.

Thunderbolt Smith: Okay. We are heading backstage for a Sports Entertainment Corporation interview.

Backstage, Corporate Sports (entertainment) Programming Nation interviewer Rebecca Morris has Jackson C. Horne with her.

Also with him: Kris Kardoucheian- patriarch of the Kardoucheian Family featured in the long running reality show ‘Krampin’ Up with the Kardoucheians’ and ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann.

Rebecca Morris: Jackson C. Horne would like to make a statement.

Jackson C. Horne: Thank you.

Horne holds up a piece of paper.

Jackson C. Horne: After an incident that took place on last week’s show, I have taken out a restraining order against my wife Dawn McGill – stating that she must stay at least fifty feet away from me. This is because Miss McGill’s behavior has been erratic and I fear for my safe-

MVW CEO Ray McAvay enters the shot.

Ray McAvay
MVW CEO Ray McAvay

Ray McAvay: No.

Both Morris and Horne’s microphone are cut. Horne mouths something at McAvay.

Ray McAvay: Jackson, I believe I told you three weeks ago that you were not going to come out here and air your dirty laundry on our air time. No one wants to hear your grievances against Dawn McGill. No one.

Mr. McMann steps forward.

Mr. McMann
Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann

Mr. McMann: Ray, you don’t have the right-

Ray McAvay: No. I do have the right. My job is to provide quality wrestling entertainment. Quality wrestling entertainment is not bringing your personal problems to work and using our air time as bully pulpit to promote his divorce proceedings and your agenda. No. Not happening.

Dawn McGill then comes out. Horne hides behind McMann and Kardoucheian. She laughs at her soon-to-be ex-husband.

Dawn McGill: Ray. While I do appreciate the gesture here – and I do – I’m a big girl and I’m more than capable of taking care of myself. The only issue I have is the fact that Jackson won’t sign off on the final papers so we can put this monumental mistake of a marriage behind us.

She turns to McMann, Kardoucheian, and Horne.

Dawn McGill: Ray, if you want quality wrestling entertainment -.I’ll give you quality wrestling entertainment. I’ll take on you (points to Kardoucheian) . . . you (points to McMann) . . . and you (points to Horne) because I think the fans here tonight want to see me kick their asses all over the ring.

The crowd cheers and agrees with her.

McAvay’s deep in thought.

Ray McAvay: Okay Dawn. You want them. You’ve got them.

Dawn grins. McMann, Horne, and Kardoucheian? Not sure.

Ray McAvay: But . . . if we really want quality wrestling entertainment, we’re going to stretch this out.

McGill’s not sure where her ex-husband is going with this. Neither does McMann. Horne, and Kardoucheian.

Ray McAvay: You’ll take them on . . . one at a time!

The crowd likes it. McGill smiles – she likes it. But McMann, Kardoucheian, and Horne? Not so much.

Mr. McMann: Are you kidding me? Why would we agree to that? We all have issues with Miss McGill but we’re not stupid enough to do it when the conditions are tilted against us.

McGill holds up a sheet of paper.

Dawn McGill: Here’s the deal, right here in writing.  This piece of paper says I’ll take on you (points to Kardoucheian) . . . you (points to McMann) . . . and you (points to Horne). If I win, Jackson signs off on the annulment papers sitting at his attorney’s office, McMann and Kardoucheian never come near me ever again, and we end this once and for all.

McGill pauses.

Dawn McGill: And if you all win? Fine. McMann can release the sex tape of me and Ken Kardoucheian he bought from the Kardoucheians three years ago and was stopped by Jill Berg from airing.   You can make all the money you think you’re going to make from it and you won’t hear a peep from me.  Hell, I’ll even agree to do another ‘Krampin’ Up with the Kardoucheians’ and do whatever you want me to do. And I’ll agree to whatever Jackson’s terms are in our divorce.

McMann, Kardoucheian, and Horne huddle. McMann then turns around.

Mr. McMann: We accept.

McMann signs.  Then Kardoucheian. Then Horne. McMann hands the document back to Dawn.

She hands the agreement to Ray McAvay.   McAvay reads the terms and conditions.

Mr. McMann: So, you’ll have to schedule the matches.

Ray McAvay: I did.  First one takes place in about . . . (McAvay checks his watch) . . . um . . . one minute.

Mr. McMann: WHAT!

McAvay slaps Kardoucheian on the shoulder.

Ray McAvay: You’d better get down to the ring.

Kardoucheian looks alarmed.







Both McGill and Kardoucheian are in the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: Mr. McMann and Jackson C. Horne are at ringside and both are not happy at all.

Rick Hall: Dawn McGill may have outsmarted them but she still has to defeat them in the ring over the next three weeks.

Thunderbolt Smith: One more thing. The matches are no disqualification. I’m sure Dawn has a good reason for doing that.

Kimber Marshall does the quick introductions.

Referee Brent Payson calls for the bell.


1st Minute:
McGill walks forward. Kardoucheian confers with McMann and Horne.

He finally walks towards her. She raises a can of mace and sprays it in his eyes.

Thunderbolt Smith: Oh.

Rick Hall: And that explains the no disqualification part.

McMann and Horne go berserk. While Kardoucheian claws at his eyes, McGill slaps on the Testicular Claw.

Thunderbolt Smith: Oh again.

Rick Hall: Well, now Kardoucheian has a conundrum. His eyes are burning like hell and McGill is squeezing the life out of his testicles. What does he do?

He taps.


Then he goes back to clawing his eyes out and nearly runs into Kimber Marshall as she climbs into the ring.

WINNER: Dawn McGill @ :50

Kimber hands McGill the microphone.

Dawn McGill: Okay. One down. Two to go. Boys, this isn’t me desperately trying to get some sort of payback on you. This is me settling ALL past business once and for all. (to McMann)  You are going to pay for all the humiliation you caused me in 2016 and 2017 next week.  ( to Kardoucheian)  And Kardoucheian? I’ve just got one word for you and your show.

McGill flips him off and spikes the microphone.

Kellie Burkowski has the ‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1 and his assistant Todd- The Backstage Technician with her.

Kellie Burkowski: Ultratron-5.1. Um. Why are you here?

‘The New Age Cybertronic Criminally Insane Rogue
Sentient Robot Wrestling Machine’ Ultratron-5.1

Ultratron-5.1: I have my reasons Ms. Burkowski. Since I am no longer encumbered by being straitjacketed into the Sports Entertainment Corporation, I am here to discuss my future plans with you.

Kellie Burkowski: Okay. What are your future plans?


Kellie just looks at him. She glances at Todd – Todd shrugs – and glances back at Ultratron-5.1.

Ultratron-5.1: I have money. With money I can purchase power. With power, I will first conquer the SEC now that I am no longer a puppet on their string. Then. Missouri Valley Wrestling will be mine for the taking.

Cue maniacal laughter from Ultratron-5.1 and a bemused and probably bewildered expression from Todd.

Kellie watches as the pair make a dramatic exit from the shot- not sure what to make of it.

Kellie Burkowski: O-kay. Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to Thunderbolt and Hall at the broadcast desk.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right. It looks like Ultratron-5.1 has decided to declare war on the SEC.

Rick Hall: Well. Remember that the Sports Entertainment Corporation attacked Ultratron-5.1 after he quit the SEC and apparently Ultratron-5.1 is plotting some sort of payback.

Thunderbolt Smith: That is true. The SEC has also been involved in a long running row with the Southern Boys for some time now. And both teams are in the ring right now for a big eight man tag team match. Let’s go there now where Kimber Marshall is ready to make the introduction.

Kimber Marshall: Our next match is one fall . . .

Crowd: ONE fall!

Kimber Marshall: And is an eight man tag team match. Introducing first . . .

Miller and Michaels start and it’s the slugfest everyone expects.

Miller gains the upper hand. Michaels whipped to the ropes – back body drop.

Gibson-Lane in – Miller back body drops him and lays in the boots. Williams in – he stomps Gibson-Lane.

Keels orders Gibson-Lane, Williams out. Miller and Michaels continue to brawl. Michaels misses a superkick.

2nd Minute:

All the E-Wrestling News You Need


Back to the ring, all hell’s broken loose and not for the reason you think.

Thunderbolt Smith: While we were at commercial, this happened.

(REPLAY: Just a moment ago)

Bill Dickinson and Marty Gibson-Lane unload on each other as they fight in the middle of the ring. Outside the ring, Ultratron-5.1 arrives with an army of Ultratron-5.1 look-a-likes and attacks the SEC at ringside.


Ultratron-5.1 stands back and directs his army to destroy the SEC- which is what they are doing.

Rick Hall: Thunderbolt, I’ve never seen anything like this before. Ultratron-5.1 called his shot earlier in the show and he is making it happen.

The Southern Boys stay a discreet distance away. Referee Davey Keels has already thrown the match out.

But the carnage continues. All four members of the SEC are down and out as Ultratron-5.1 Clones continue to stomp away at them.

Finally, MVW security appears.

Thunderbolt Smith: MVW CEO Ray McAvay sends down the security to break this up. But wow.

Rick Hall: Ultratron-5.1 basically fired the SEC. The SEC then attacked him at a house show. And now, Ultratron-5.1 delivers a little payback.

Security reaches ringside and begins to shoo Ultratron-5.1 and his minions away.

Thunderbolt Smith: While they clean this up, let’s go backstage with Kellie Burkowski. Kellie?

Kellie’s got ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido with her in the back near the SEC dressing room.


Kellie Burkowski: Thanks Thunderbolt. Earlier this evening, ‘No Frills’ Chris Escondido scored a huge win over the former MVW Men’s champion – ‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell – to move up in the Men’s division rankings to number three.

The camera brings Escondido into the shot.

Kellie Burkowski: Chris, you’ve been on a positive arc since you returned to singles competition. What’s going on?

Escondido laughs.

Chris Escondido: I’m on a nice roll right now. I’ve picked up a couple nice wins and obviously defeating a wrestler of Charlie Blackwell’s caliber is big thing – a good thing.

Kellie Burkowski: So your next match will be against the loser of ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and Average Joe.

Chris Escondido: Yep. Average Joe just had a title shot and did really well against ‘Big Money’ Darin Matthews. And Dickinson. Everyone knows just how bad he wants that title. So, I’ll definitely be watching that match and keeping an eye on who my next opponent is going to be.

Kellie Burkowski: How’s your knee?

Chris Escondido: My knee is in as good of shape as it’s been in years. I am blessed that modern technology has evolved so much – even in the past ten to twelve years – that my past knee problems can be corrected and I am back to where I was when I was twenty-five years old.

Kellie Burkowski: But you’re not.

Chris Escondido: No. But I feel great. We’re going to ride this thing as long as we can.

Kellie Burkowski: Thanks Chris.

Chris Escondido: Thank you, Kellie-

The door to the SEC dressing room opens behind them. The camera zooms in.

Charlie Blackwell
‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell

‘Charlie Wrestling’ Charlie Blackwell slips out of the room.

He sees Kellie and the camera crew and immediately walks away.

Kellie Burkowski: Back to you Thunderbolt.

Cut back to Thunderbolt and Hall.

Thunderbolt Smith: That’s a nice story. Escondido is pushing forty and yet he’s wrestling as well as he’s ever wrestled in his life.

Rick Hall: Yep. Very good story.

Thunderbolt Smith: And as for Charlie Blackwell? Coming out of the SEC’s dressing room?

Rick Hall: Charlie has been a part of the SEC before. Would he go back a second time? He’s struggled since losing the title in December.

Thunderbolt Smith: All right, we are ready for our main event. Let’s to the ring one last time tonight and Kimber Marshall.

Cut to the ring.

Kimber Marshall: Our main event tonight is one fall . . .

Crowd: ONE fall!

Kimber Marshall: . . . and it is a non-title match. Introducing first.

The opening riffs of Donnie Iris’s ‘Ah Leah’ begin to play.

Leah Iris
“Queen Cool” Leah Iris
AGE: 26 / HT: 5′ 9″ WT: 125 / HOME: Pittsburgh, PA
FIN: Pittsburgh Rocker Dropper

Leah Iris appears in the back holding her fist in the air. She bobs her head to the beat of the song.

Yeah, it’s been a long, long time, such a sight now
You’re lookin’ better than a body has a right to.
Don’t you know we’re playin’ with the fire?
But we can stop this burnin’ desire, Leah!

Leah starts down the aisle and slaps everyone’s hands on the way.

Ah! Leah!
Here we go again!
Ah! Leah!
Is it ever gonna end?
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again!
Ah! Leah!

Leah reaches the ring and the music changes up.

Kimber Marshall: And her opponent – she is the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion!

“What Have You Done Now?” – Within Temptation

The electric guitar intro fades up until the opening line of the song.

Lisa Barbosa-Stevens

AGE: ** / HT 6’0″ WT: 130 / HOME: Houston, TX
FIN: Toxic Sting


And the beat kicks in.

Stevens Dynasty: George and Bo Stevens walk out first followed by Lisa’s manager Ted Tebow.

I know I’d better stop trying
You know that there’s no denying
I won’t show mercy on you now

Then the Missouri Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion Lisa Barbosa-Stevens makes her entrance onto the stage.

I know, should stop believing
I know, there’s no retrieving
It’s over now, what have you done?

She joins the Stevens Dynasty and Tebow and waits.


The song slashes into the chorus – Lisa’s cue to head down to the ring.

Thunderbolt Smith: ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris is back in singles action. When MVW came back in 2015, Leah wrestled for the MVW title against Jill Berg. She hasn’t had the same success of late – but we’ll see if she can get thing rekindled for her.

Rick Hall: Leah’s a good wrestler. But Lisa Barbosa-Stevens is a step above her. Next week, Lisa gets Christa Carmondy for the title. This will be a good match for her to get ready for what will be a big time challenge next week when Christa and the SEC come to town at the McLeod Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa this Saturday with the Women’s title on the line.

Both women in the ring now. Referee Corrina Romanov is also there. She does the pre-match check of the wrestlers and she’s ready to start the match.








Thunderbolt Smith: And here we go.

1st Minute:
Both women circle at a quick pace. Lock up.

Leah and Lisa jockey for position. Leah gets a headlock. Lisa throws her off and sends her to the ropes.

Leah ducks a clothesline – comes off the other ropes. Lisa’s there and drives a knee into her midsection.

She whips Leah across the ring again – drives the knee again into her midsection.

Rick Hall: Those Irish Whip knee strikes by Lisa are designed to take a little air out of the opponent and wear her down a bit.

2nd Minute:
Leah in the corner. Lisa pauses – runs – drop kick sends Leah back. Iris leans back on the turnbuckle.

Leah runs at her again – running elbow slams into Leah’s face.   Leah lurches forward – hop toss by Lisa.

Cover. 1 . . . Leah gets the arm and shoulder up. Both women up – Lisa with a waistlock. Leah tries to escape.

Leah tries to force Lisa’s hands apart – she reverses – waistlock by Leah.   Side headlock now – she takes Lisa down.

3rd Minute:
Leah keeps the side headlock on – Lisa on the mat. Romanov watches the shoulders.

Lisa rolls Leah through – cover. 1 . . . 2- Leah retakes the side headlock. She wrenches it in tight.

Lisa gets her leg up – scissors Leah’s head down and gets to a sitting position. Now Lisa wrenches the head scissors in.

Leah bridges up – and over. She stands up.

Rick Hall: That’s a neat little escape there by Leah Iris.
