Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland
Des Moines, Iowa
Tuesday October 10th, 2023
Announcers: Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall
Backstage Interviewer: Kellie Burkowski
Ring Announcer: Heather Cooper
MVW… MVW… MVW…
The atmosphere inside the Knapp Center in Des Moines, Iowa, crackled with an electric anticipation as 4500 raucous wrestling fans filled the arena, leaving about 1925 empty seats scattered throughout. The air was thick with excitement and the scent of popcorn and cheap beer. Thunderbolt Smith, MVW’s play-by-play voice, stood alongside ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, the color commentator, in the center of the ring, both men wearing tailored suits and grins that spoke of their love for the sport.
“Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Wrestling Night in the Heartland!” Thunderbolt bellowed into his microphone, his voice echoing through the arena. The crowd roared in response, a cacophony of cheers, jeers, and feet stomping. Thunderbolt turned to Rick, who was practically vibrating with enthusiasm.
“Isn’t this something, Rick?” Thunderbolt asked, raising an eyebrow at his partner’s barely contained glee.
“Absolutely, Thunderbolt! I can feel it in my bones; we’ve got one hell of a night ahead of us!” Rick replied, clapping Thunderbolt on the shoulder before turning to address the crowd. “Now, let me break down tonight’s card for you fine folks!”
“First up,” Hall continued, “we have a high-stakes battle between number two contender Ricky Stevens and number three contender Buckshot Henderson!”
The mention of Ricky Stevens elicited a mix of boos and cheers from the audience, while Buckshot Henderson’s name drew a more unified roar of approval. Thunderbolt raised his hand for silence, waiting for the noise to die down before continuing.
“Next, we have a Women’s Tag Team number one contender’s match between Jill Berg Enterprises and The Working Girls. Expect fireworks, folks!” Thunderbolt announced, gesturing grandly toward the audience.
“Following that,” Rick interjected, “we have a Women’s Division number one contender’s match between Yosemite Samantha and Victoria McGill. These two fierce competitors will pull no punches in their quest for victory!”
“Finally,” Thunderbolt declared, his voice rising to be heard over the growing din of the crowd, “our main event of the evening will pit Men’s champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson against Matt Taylor in a match that promises to be a brutal, no-holds-barred affair!”
As Thunderbolt finished, the crowd erupted again, the noise levels reaching near-deafening heights. The anticipation hung heavy in the air, the fans eager to witness the night’s wrestling action unfold before their eyes.
Sports Entertainment Corporation Dressing Room
The camera cut to the opulent and luxurious dressing facility of the Sports Entertainment Corporation. The plush carpeting and exquisitely crafted, polished wooden lockers bespoke wealth and power. In the center of it all stood ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann, his tailored suit immaculate. Ricky Stevens, clad in his wrestling gear, fidgeted nervously as he listened to the man who held his career in the palm of his hand.
“Ricky,” Mr. McMann began, his voice low and menacing, “you know what’s at stake tonight. You need wins, and you need them badly. I won’t tolerate failure.”
Ricky stared at the floor, his jaw clenched. “I understand, sir. I’ll give it my all.”
“Your all?” Mr. McMann scoffed, fixing Ricky with an icy glare. “Your all hasn’t been good enough lately. Tonight, you need to be better than that.”
“Sir, I promise, I’ll make you proud,” Ricky insisted, desperation seeping into his voice. He knew that without Mr. McMann’s support, his career would be over. The pressure weighed heavily on him.
“Good. Now get out there and show Buckshot Henderson who’s boss.” With a forceful slap on Ricky’s back, Mr. McMann dismissed the wrestler. Drucilla Danes followed, her dark eyes narrowed in determination.
As Ricky and Dru disappeared through the doorway, Luke Woods entered the dressing room. His confident stride and easy smile contrasted with Ricky’s retreating figure. Mr. McMann’s demeanor shifted instantly, a warm grin replacing his previous scowl.
“Luke! So glad you could make it,” he gushed, ushering the young wrestler further into the room. As if on cue, the camera crew began to retreat, sensing that this conversation was not for public consumption. “Now, let’s talk about your future,” Mr. McMann continued, his voice dripping with intrigue as the door closed, cutting the scene off from prying eyes.

The arena erupted in cheers as Ricky Stevens stood victorious over Buckshot Henderson, his sweat-drenched face a testament to the intensity of the match. Drucilla Danes joined him in the ring, a proud smile on her lips. Mr. McMann clapped approvingly from ringside, clearly satisfied with the outcome.
As they made their way back up the ramp, Mr. McMann slapped Ricky on the back. “You did good, kid,” he said, a hint of pride in his voice. “But you’ve got to do it again this weekend. No more slip-ups.”
Ricky nodded, his chest heaving from exertion. He knew there was no room for error now, not if he wanted to keep his place in the Sports Entertainment Corporation. His eyes flicked to the side as they passed by Luke Woods, who had been watching the match intently from backstage. Ricky couldn’t help but feel a little uncomfortable as their gazes met, knowing full well that he could be facing Woods on Saturday if the young wrestler managed to defeat Buckshot Henderson on Friday night.
“Looks like Ricky knows what’s at stake,” Thunderbolt Smith commented, observing the interaction between the two wrestlers. “Tension is mounting as we approach the weekend’s events.”
The scene shifted backstage, where Kellie Burkowski stood with her microphone at the ready. “Breaking news, folks,” she said, her expression serious. “There’s been another incident between Bo Stevens and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson. As you may recall, these two have tangled before.”
As Kellie spoke, the camera panned out to show both the Stevens Dynasty and the Alabama Gang appearing on the scene. The tension in the air was palpable as the two factions exchanged terse words, each group clearly itching for a fight.
“Keep an eye on this situation,” Kellie warned. “It seems like the hostility between the Stevens Dynasty and the Alabama Gang is far from over.”
With that, the scene cut to a commercial break.
As the broadcast returned from commercial, Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall were already in a heated discussion about the recent altercation between Bo Stevens and Bill Dickinson backstage.
“Unbelievable,” Thunderbolt said, shaking his head. “Tensions are high here in MVW.”
“Absolutely,” agreed Hall, his eyes wide with excitement. “Things are getting wild, and we’re just getting started!”
Jill Berg Enterprises Dressing Room
“Let’s take you now to the Jill Berg Enterprises dressing room for more on this developing situation.” The scene shifted to a luxurious corporate-style dressing room, complete with plush leather sofas, sleek glass tables, and motivational posters adorning the walls. Jill Berg, CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises, stood stoically at the center of the room, flanked by her team: Victoria McGill, Prisoner #034291, ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan, and Madison Miller.
Jill faced the camera, her steely gaze fixed on the screen as she began to speak. “It’s absolutely ridiculous that Victoria McGill was Southern Fried Powerbombed by Bill Dickinson at Heartland PPV, losing her chance at the Women’s Title against Jennifer Colton.”
“Preposterous!” chimed in Victoria, visibly upset. “I deserved better than that!”
“Indeed,” Jill continued, her anger simmering beneath the surface. “And let’s not forget Ginny Van Lear’s little stunt last week, setting off a buck bomb inside our dressing room! It cost us thousands to remove that vile stench!”
“Disgusting,” muttered Prisoner #034291, shaking her head in disdain.
“Tonight,” Jill promised, her voice growing firm, “we will have our payback, as only a large corporation can. Our competitors, the Working Girls—Caroline Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris—will feel the wrath of Jill Berg Enterprises. Our talented Sheline Carrigan and Madison Miller will take them on in a #1 contender’s match, and we will take one step closer to regaining the Women’s Tag Team title.”
“Tonight is the night,” Sheline Carrigan vowed, her eyes cold and determined. “We’ve trained hard, and we’re ready to fight.”
“Jill Berg Enterprises doesn’t lose tonight,” Madison Miller added confidently.
“Exactly,” Jill concluded, a fierce fire burning in her eyes. “Last week, we defeated The Rose Warriors (Geena the Warrior Princess/Eliza Rose). Tonight, we take care of business against The Working Girls.”
Jill paused and then did the corporate catchphrase.
“Jill Berg Enterprises MEANS Business.”
The camera cut back to Thunderbolt and Hall, their faces reflecting the intensity of Jill Berg’s proclamation. The atmosphere was electric as anticipation built for the upcoming match between Jill Berg Enterprises’ Carrigan and Miller and the Working Girls.
“Things are about to get real interesting,” Hall said, rubbing his hands together gleefully. “I can’t wait to see what happens next!”
“Neither can I,” agreed Thunderbolt, his voice filled with anticipation. “We’ll be back with JBE and The Working Girls right after these messages.”
Thunderbolt wasted no time. “Big match. Let’s go to Heather Cooper in the ring.”
MATCH #2-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM #1 CONTENDER’S MATCH: Jill Berg Enterprises vs. The Working Girls
As if on cue, Heather Cooper, MVW’s sexy and sultry ring announcer, rolled into the ring with a sultry grace that seemed to captivate the audience. Her brunette locks cascaded over her shoulders, accentuating her sexy curves as she sauntered to the center of the ring, microphone in hand.
Suddenly, a series of resounding *THUMP*, *THUMP*, *THUMP-THUMP-THUMP* echoed throughout the arena. The camera shifted its focus to the stage, where Jill Berg, CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises, confidently strode out with her security detail flanking her on either side. The crowd erupted into a cacophony of cheers and jeers as she made her way down the ramp, her eyes locked onto the ring like a predator stalking its prey. With each step, Jill exuded power and control, her gaze never wavering as she climbed into the ring.

The deafening roar of the crowd filled the arena as the grueling match came to an end. Referee Bailey Jenkins raised the hands of Caroline Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris in victory, their exhausted yet triumphant expressions a testament to their hard-fought win over Jill Berg Enterprises.
“Impossible!” cried Thunderbolt from the announcer’s table. “I can’t believe it! The Working Girls have defeated Carrigan and Miller!”
“Jill Berg is not going to be happy about this,” Hall added, a hint of glee in his voice.
In the ring, ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan and Madison Miller rolled out, their faces etched with disappointment and disbelief. They had given it their all, but tonight, it just hadn’t been enough.
“Damn it,” Carrigan muttered under her breath, her eyes glassy with unshed tears. She had been so sure they would regain their rightful place as #1 contenders for the Women’s Tag Team title.
“Hey, we’ll get them next time,” Miller said quietly, trying to console her partner. But deep down, she too was struggling with overwhelming frustration and defeat.
As they stood outside the ring, Jill Berg approached. Her face was like a thundercloud, and her eyes flashed dangerously. Carrigan and Miller braced themselves for the storm they knew would be unleashed.
“Look at me,” Berg demanded, her voice low and cold. Carrigan and Miller reluctantly met her gaze, waiting for the onslaught.
“Tonight…” she began, pausing for dramatic effect, “was not our night.”
As she spoke, her face softened slightly, and she placed a firm hand on each woman’s shoulder. “But remember, we are Jill Berg Enterprises. We do not give up. We do not accept defeat.”
“Next time, we will crush them,” Carrigan vowed, her voice shaking with intensity.
“Yeah we will,” Miller agreed, her chin lifting in determination.
“Good,” Berg said, nodding her approval. “Now let’s get out of here.”
With that, the four women walked up the ramp towards the back, heads held high despite their loss. The crowd’s jeers and taunts followed them, but they remained undeterred. They knew this was not the end – it was merely a setback on their journey to regain the Women’s Tag Team title.
“Jill Berg Enterprises may have lost tonight,” Thunderbolt said as they disappeared from view, “but something tells me this is far from over.”
“Agreed,” Hall replied, his eyes gleaming with anticipation.
Cary Stevens and ‘Friends’
Backstage, the atmosphere was thick with tension as Cary Stevens sneered into the camera, his eyes filled with disdain. Bo and George Stevens flanked him, their muscular arms crossed over their chests, exuding an air of menace. The trio radiated confidence, the golden tag team belts glistening around Bo and George’s waists.
Stevens Dynasty: Cary Stevens, George Stevens, Bo Stevens
“Listen up, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and the rest of you Alabama Gang losers,” Cary spat, his voice dripping with contempt. “Keep your filthy noses out of the Stevens family business, or you’ll regret it.”
As if summoned by Cary’s words, Bill Dickinson, R.G. Jenkins, and Mark Hendry suddenly appeared in the frame. The two factions squared off, a volatile mixture of glares, stares, and harshly whispered threats filling the air.
Dickinson stepped forward, his gaze locked on Bo. “Next time you interfere in one of my matches, Stevens, the shit’s gonna hit the fan,” he growled, his southern drawl adding an extra layer of menace to his words.
Bo scoffed, smirking at Dickinson. “You Alabama Gang boys are just jealous losers ’cause the Stevens Dynasty’s got these shiny tag belts,” he retorted, patting the championship belt around his waist. “Y’all ain’t got nothin’ on us.”
The situation escalated as more heated words were exchanged, the wrestlers inching closer and closer to each other, their faces inches apart. It was clear that neither side was going to back down, and the intensity between them was almost palpable.
“Hey!” Cary yelled, cutting through the chaos. “If y’all wanna settle this, let’s do it in the ring like real men.” His challenge hung heavy in the air, and for a moment, it seemed as though the Alabama Gang was considering it.
Before the situation could spiral further out of control, MVW Security arrived on the scene, their stern faces and imposing presence forcing the two teams apart. The wrestlers were separated, but their eyes remained locked, shooting daggers at each other. It was clear that this feud was far from over, and the air of anticipation hung heavy as the scene faded out.
Yosemite Samantha Interview
Elsewhere backstage, Kellie Burkowski stood with Yosemite Samantha, the wild and unpredictable cowgirl. Yosemite Samantha’s hat sat low over her eyes, her fiery red hair peeking out from under it. Her fingers drummed on her holstered lasso, itching for action.
“Yosemite Samantha,” began Kellie, trying to keep a safe distance from the ticking time bomb that was he cowgirl wrestler. “Tonight you face off against Victoria McGill. What are your thoughts going in?”
Yosemite Samantha’s lips curled into a wicked grin as she leaned closer to the microphone. “Well, Kellie, let me tell ya somethin’. I’m gonna show that little lady Tori a few tricks or two tonight!” She cackled madly, her laughter echoing through the halls. “I’m gonna lasso her up like she’s at the rodeo and take her outta this here competition! Yee-haw!”
Kellie quickly wrapped up the interview, sensing Yosemite Samantha’s growing impatience. “Thank you, Yosemite Samantha, and good luck tonight.”
“Thanks, darlin’,” she replied, tipping her hat before stalking off down the hallway, leaving Kellie to catch her breath.
Back at the broadcast table, Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall exchanged glances. “Well, Rick,” said Thunderbolt, shaking his head, “it looks like we’re in for one wild match between Victoria McGill and Yosemite Samantha tonight.”
“Wild is an understatement, Thunderbolt!” exclaimed Rick Hall, excitement evident in his voice. “Yosemite Samantha is like a tornado tearing through the ring, leaving nothing but destruction in her wake. I can’t wait to see what happens when these two collide!”
“Neither can I, Rick,” agreed Thunderbolt. “Let’s send it down to Heather Cooper in the ring for the introductions.”
The camera cut to Heather Cooper, the sultry ring announcer, as she stood in the center of the ring, microphone in hand.

The moment Yosemite Samantha’s name left Heather Cooper’s lips, she exploded into a frenzy of motion. The cowgirl sprinted across the ring, her boots pounding against the canvas like an untamed stallion. As the bell rang out, she lunged at Victoria McGill with wild abandon, fists flying like a whirlwind.
“Whoa! Yosemite Samantha isn’t wasting any time!” cried Thunderbolt Smith in surprise as he watched the rapid assault.
“Yeehaw! She’s like a rattlesnake striking, Thunderbolt,” Rick Hall chimed in enthusiastically. “Tori’s gonna have her hands full tonight!”
In the ring, Yosemite Samantha relentlessly pummeled Tori, each punch thrown with the force of a bucking bronco. Tori struggled to regain her footing amidst the onslaught, her eyes wide with shock and determination.
“Come on, Tori girl!” Yosemite Samantha taunted through gritted teeth. “Ah thought you were the tough one ’round here!”
As Yosemite Samantha continued her vicious attack, Tori could feel the sting of each blow, but she refused to be taken down so easily. She pushed through the pain, her thoughts focused solely on finding an opening, any opportunity to turn the tide in her favor.
“Yosemite Samantha is really laying into Victoria McGill, but I’ve never seen anyone take such a beating and still keep fighting,” Thunderbolt observed, admiration evident in his voice.
“Victoria’s got heart, that’s for sure,” agreed Rick Hall. “But can she survive this storm long enough to mount a comeback?”
“Victoria McGill has done it! She’s defeated Yosemite Samantha in one heck of a match!” Thunderbolt declared, his voice filled with excitement.
“An incredible effort by both women, but Victoria showed us tonight that she’s got what it takes to come out on top,” added Rick Hall.
As Victoria basked in the adoration of the crowd, Jill Berg entered the ring, a warm smile on her face. She approached the victorious wrestler, offering her congratulations and a heartfelt embrace.
“Great job, Tori!” Jill exclaimed, her eyes shining with pride. “You showed everyone what you’re made of tonight!”
“Thank you, Jill,” Victoria replied, her breath still heavy from the hard-fought battle. “It wasn’t easy, but I wasn’t about to let Yosemite Samantha get the best of me.”
“Alright folks,” Thunderbolt said, as the camera panned back to him and Rick Hall at the broadcast table. “We’ll be right back after this commercial break. Don’t go anywhere – there’s plenty more MVW action coming your way!”

Kardoucheians on Strike
Back from commercial, the camera cut to a scene outside the Knapp Arena, where a luxurious, Hollywood-style dressing trailer stood like a shining beacon amidst the chaos of the wrestling world. The Kardoucheian Empire—Ken, Koley, Kourtney, and family patriarch Kris Kardoucheian—were in full force, pacing back and forth with picket signs that read ‘MVW is unfair to his wildly successful and popular reality show star sons.’
“Kris,” Kellie Burkowski, MVW’s 24-year-old backstage interviewer, approached the family patriarch with her microphone raised. “Can you tell us why you feel your sons have been mistreated and disrespected by MVW?”
Kris glared into the camera, his eyes burning with indignation. “Over and over again, my superstar sons have been overlooked, dismissed, and downright insulted by this organization. They deserve so much more than what they’ve been given!”
As he spoke, the camera panned around the area. There wasn’t a soul in sight, no one paying attention to the Kardoucheians and their protest. It was as if they were invisible amidst the excitement of the upcoming main event.
“Look at this!” Kris continued, gesturing angrily at the empty space around them. “No one is even paying attention to us right now! Is this fair? Absolutely not! My boys are stars, and they should be treated as such!”
Kellie nodded sympathetically, sensing the passion behind Kris’s words. She glanced around as well, noting the lack of interest from anyone passing by.
“Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Kris,” she said, turning back to the camera. “Back to you, Thunderbolt and Hall.”
“Thanks, Kellie,” Thunderbolt Smith, MVW’s play-by-play voice, responded. He shared a glance with his fellow commentator, ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, before continuing. “Well, folks, it seems the Kardoucheian Empire is not happy with their treatment here in MVW.”
“Yeah, it’s a shame,” Rick added, half-sarcastically.
“Absolutely, Rick,” Thunderbolt agreed, his even-keeled tone a stark contrast to his colleague’s enthusiasm. “It’s main event time!”
With that, the camera switched to Heather Cooper, MVW’s sexy and sultry ring announcer, who stood poised in the center of the ring. Her brunette hair flowed down her back, her curves accentuated by her tight-fitting outfit.
“Ladies and gentlemen,” she began, her voice echoing throughout the arena. “It’s time for our main event!”

The bell rang, signaling the end of the main event, and Bill Dickinson raised his arms in triumph after defeating Matt Taylor. The roar of the crowd filled the arena as Thunderbolt Smith’s voice cut through the noise.
“Bill Dickinson with an impressive victory tonight!” he exclaimed, maintaining his neutral tone despite the excitement around him. “But wait a minute…”
The camera panned away from the victorious Dickinson to reveal a chaotic scene unfolding on the ramp. The Stevens Dynasty and The Alabama Gang were engaged in an all-out brawl, fists flying and bodies slamming into each other with reckless abandon.
“Looks like The Alabama Gang didn’t take kindly to Bo Stevens interfering in Dickinson’s match,” Thunderbolt observed, as George and Cary Stevens rushed onto the stage to aid their embattled cousin. “They’ve jumped on the stage to settle the score, and it’s turning into a wild melee!”
“Yeehaw!” Rick Hall shouted enthusiastically. “This is what MVW is all about, Thunderbolt! Pure, unadulterated action!”
MVW Security personnel swarmed the ramp area, attempting to separate the two warring factions. They struggled to contain the fierce combatants, who seemed hell-bent on tearing each other apart.
“Ricky Stevens is on thin ice, and now this?” Thunderbolt mused aloud, watching the chaos unfold. “Mr. McMann can’t be happy about this.”
“Thunderbolt, this just proves how high tensions are running here in MVW!” Rick added, his voice full of excitement. “These guys have had enough, and they’re not gonna take it anymore!”
As security finally managed to pry the two sides apart, albeit with considerable difficulty, Thunderbolt sighed and shook his head. “Well, folks, that’s going to be all for tonight’s edition of Wrestling Night in the Heartland. I’m Thunderbolt Smith. He’s Rick Hall. We’ll see you next week.”
