MVW… MVW… MVW…

Opening:
The JHQ Arena in Springfield, Missouri erupted in a sea of flashing lights and roaring pyrotechnics as the latest Wrestling Night in the Heartland kicked off on HOTv. The cameras swept through the near-sellout crowd of 8624 spectators, capturing faces painted with excitement and homemade signs that danced in the air like battle standards.

Thunderbolt Smith (booming with authority): Welcome, wrestling fans, to an electrifying night here at the JHQ Arena!

Thunderbolt’s eyes sparkled with anticipation as the camera panned to him and his partner at the broadcast table.

Thunderbolt: I am Thunderbolt Smith.  He is ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall…

“Long Haul’ Rick Hall: Hey.

Thunderbolt: And tonight, we are LIVE from the JHQ Arena in Springfield, Missouri.  What a crowd we have here tonight.

Rick: Absolutely, Thunderbolt! You can feel the electricity in the air tonight,” ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall chimed in, barely containing his enthusiasm as he gestured to the pumped-up fans behind them.

Together they ran down the evening’s card, building up the anticipation for each match.

Thunderbolt: Tonight… The Stevens Dynasty are here and they take on Surf Express Bro in a #1 contender’s match for the right to take on MVW Tag Team Champions No Quarter in two weeks in Des Moines, Iowa.

Rick: The Sports Entertainment Corporation’s Luke Woods faces Adam Ellis in a #1 contender’s match… the winner will challenge MVW Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson in Des Moines.

Thunderbolt: Jill Berg Enterprises defends the MVW Women’s Tag Team Title tonight against challengers Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald.

Rick: MVW Champion Bill Dickinson is in non-title action tonight against Ricky Stevens.

Thunderbolt: And in our main event… Victoria McGill will defend the MVW Women’s Title against the woman she defeated back at Night of Champions in December for the belt… Jennifer Colton.

Rick: That’s going to be a very interesting match.

Thunderbolt: We’ve got a packed lineup, but first…

Thunderbolt paused for effect.

Thunderbolt: …the Stevens Dynasty is squaring off against Surf Express Bro in a high-stakes Men’s Tag Team #1 contender’s match.

Thunderbolt: We are joining this match already in progress.

Thunderbolt: Big George Stevens with the Texas Sized Powerslam and that finishes off Bowie Abrams!

Rick: Talk about making a statement!  The Stevens Dynasty will get another crack at No Quarter in two weeks!”

With the Stevens Dynasty’s music (The Outlaws’s “Ghost Riders in the Sky”) blaring across the arena. Cary Stevens, ornery and brimming with Texan bravado, snatched the microphone from the sultry Heather Cooper, who stepped back with a knowing smile.

Cary Stevens: Krueger! Thompson!

Cary bellowed into the mic, addressing No Quarter directly, commanding the attention of everyone in the building.

Cary: Y’all better listen and listen closely. In two weeks, the Stevens Dynasty are comin’ for you and comin’ for those belts. We’re comin’, and we’re gonna right all the wrongs to bring that title belt back to Texas with us!

Cary’s promise echoed with vehemence, his words fueling the crowd into a frenzy. Then, with a defiant drop of the microphone, his message was punctuated by the dull thud of the mic hitting the mat.

Thunderbolt: Strong words from Cary Stevens.

Thunderbolt’s calmness was a stark contrast to the fiery promo that had just been unleashed.

Rick: Thunderbolt, I can’t wait to see if they’ll back it up.

Thunderbolt: I’m sure that mirrors the sentiment of everyone who’s watching tonight. Stay with us, folks. We’ll be right back after this commercial break.

With that, the screen faded to black, leaving the viewers at home clinging to the edge of their seats, hungry for more heartland action.


High Octane Wrestling

The camera panned back to the broadcast table where Thunderbolt Smith sat, poised and ready with that trademark even-keeled tone. Next to him, ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall leaned into his microphone, a barely contained excitement in his voice as the footage rolled on the screen behind them.

Thunderbolt: Last Saturday night, we witnessed Adam Ellis start off at a snail’s pace against Ricky Stevens in a critical number two versus number three match.

Hall interjected, almost jumping out of his seat.

Rick: Yup, but boy did he pick up steam! He got rolling and never looked back, cruising to a decisive win.

Thunderbolt: Indeed…

Thunderbolt’s eyes focused on the action replay.

Thunderbolt: …and tonight, the stakes are even higher as Ellis takes on the Sports Entertainment Corporation’s own Luke Woods in what promises to be a slobberknocker of a number one contender’s match.

MATCH #2-MVW TITLE #1 CONTENDER’S MATCH: Adam Ellis vs. Luke Woods
With the clip fading to black, Thunderbolt smoothly handed off to Heather Cooper inside the squared circle. The brunette ring announcer, her curves hugged by a shimmering outfit, held the microphone with a confident air.

Heather Cooper: Our next match will be…”

She paused for the chorus of the crowd, roaring back, “ONE FALL!”  Heather’s lips curled into a knowing smile.

Heather: …and will be a #1 contender’s match.

As if on cue, the arena lights dimmed and the opening riffs of Garrett Biggs’s “Mama Didn’t Raise No…” echoed throughout the venue. A spotlight hit the entrance stage, revealing Adam Ellis, the intensity in his eyes matched only by the fervor of the fans. He struck a pose, muscles flexing, before striding confidently down the aisle, slapping hands with the front row.

Heather: And his opponent…

Heather paused, allowing for dramatic effect as Generic Upbeat Music filled the air. Triple R, the self-proclaimed ‘Sports Entertainment Genius,’ strutted onto the stage, flanked by the SEC’s silver-tongued mouthpiece Phil Finebaum. Each step was calculated, exuding a cocky assurance that only the SEC could muster.

Heather: From St. Louis, Missouri, representing the Sports Entertainment Corporation, Luke Woods!

Woods joined Triple R and Finebaum on the stage.  Then, the SEC contingent made its way to the ring, absorbing the jeers from the crowd like fuel.

Minutes later, after a grueling contest, Thunderbolt’s voice pierced through the noise.

Thunderbolt: And Adam Ellis gets the win!

His call was clean, unmarred by bias, yet carried the weight of the moment.

Rick: Ellis slapped on the elevated Boston Crab, and Woods had no choice but to tap.

But the celebration was cut short.

Gator Bates and The Alabama Kid stormed the ring, ambushing Ellis from behind.

Thunderbolt: THE SEC ATTACKS ELLIS!

Bates delivered his signature ‘Gator Chomp,’ driving Ellis to the mat with a thud that echoed through the arena. Not to be outdone, The Alabama Kid followed up with The Crimson Tide, leaving Ellis writhing in pain.

Triple R seized the microphone from Heather Cooper with righteous fury.

Triple R: Tonight is just the beginning.  2024 will be the year of sports entertainment!

He dropped the mic with a resounding spike, symbolically marking his territory as the SEC retreated amidst a chorus of boos.

Thunderbolt: Well now.

Thunderbolt shook his head in disapproval.

Rick: Absolutely, Thunderbolt.  Adam Ellis won the match but the SEC stole the moment.

As the screen faded to the ads, the image of Adam Ellis, laid out and alone in the center of the ring, promised that this saga was just beginning.


PRIME

A Visit from the Queen of the Ring
The broadcast returned from commercial with a jarring cut to the bustling backstage area where wrestling royalty and business magnate Lindsay Troy, CEO and President of PRIME Wrestling, stood in animated conversation with MVW’s owners, Ray McAvay and Joe Bergman. The trio’s discussion was punctuated by the energetic gestures of LT, her eyes sharp and commanding as she engaged with the owners. Amid the clatter of equipment and the murmur of staff, LT took a moment to exchange words with the challenger in tonight’s main event- Jennifer Colton, who nodded intently, soaking in every morsel of advice.

Back at the broadcast table, the calm voice of Thunderbolt Smith broke through the anticipation of the crowd.

Thunderbolt: Ladies and gentlemen, Adam Ellis walked to the back under his own power, which is always a good sign.

Rick: Always good to see.

Thunderbolt: All right, let’s go back to the ring and Heather Cooper.

MATCH #3-MVW WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: Jill Berg Enterprises © vs. Laney Harrison/McLean Oswald
Heather Cooper stood in the center of the ring, a vision of poise and allure against the ropes.

Heather’s sultry tones filled the arena.

Heather: Our next match will be…

She paused, and the crowd erupted, their voices unified in a raucous cry: “ONE FALL!”

Heather: ….and this will be for the MVW Women’s Tag Team Title!”

The opening riffs of “You’re Going Down” by Sick Puppies thundered through the speakers, heralding the arrival of the challengers Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald.

Heather: Introducing the challengers.  Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald!

The pair emerged, determination etched on their faces, ready to reclaim glory.

Heather: And their opponent!

*THUMP… THUMP… THUMP-THUMP-THUMP*


Jill Berg, flanked by her imposing entourage that included the stoic figure of Prisoner #034291, commanded the stage. Her presence was a statement, one of power and control.

*THUMP… THUMP… THUMP-THUMP-THUMP*

Heather: They are the REIGNING MVW Women’s Tag Team Champions… Sheline Carrigan… Madison Miller… JILL BERG ENTERPRISES!

The champions came out from the back and strode down the ramp behind Jill Berg’s entourage, confidence radiating from them like heat from the sun.

Rick: Thunderbolt, Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald defeated Jill Berg Enterprises on December 5th in a number one contender’s match.

Thunderbolt leaned into his microphone.

Thunderbolt: That’s right.  It was Jill Berg Enterprises who faced and defeated The Hanson Sisters at Night of Champions in December.  The question is, can Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald do it again tonight?

Thunderbolt: Sheline Carrigan flies high off the turnbuckle and she pins Laney Harrison!  Jill Berg Enterprises retains the title!

Rick Hall chimed in, admiration in his voice for the challengers’ efforts.

Rick: Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald fought hard, gave the champions fits, but Carrigan and Miller battled through it and got the win.

However, the action did not cease with the bell.

Thunderbolt: Wait a minute… Carrigan just pulled Laney Harrison back up…

After Carrigan yanked Harrison to her feet, she executed a ruthless Canadian Destroyer, leaving the crowd in shock.

Thunderbolt: CANADIAN DESTROYER TO HARRISON!  HERE COMES OSWALD!

Oswald’s attempt to intervene was quickly nullified by Madison Miller, who tackled her with precision. Carrigan and Miller then hoisted Oswald up as if presenting her to the crowd.

Prisoner #034291 made her presence felt, rolling into the ring like a force of nature, and delivered a devastating two-hand choke slam to Oswald.

Rick: Payback for the December loss.

Thunderbolt: Or perhaps it’s Jill Berg Enterprises’ newfound aggression coming to the surface.

Rick: Could be.

With the echoes of the crowd’s mixed reactions still resounding, Thunderbolt concluded the segment.

Thunderbolt: All right, we’ve got more action coming up for you, right after these commercial messages.

Thunderbolt: Let’s send it over to Kellie Burkowski who has the challenger in tonight’s MVW Women’s Title match with her.

Jennifer Colton Interview
Kellie Burkowski stood with poise in the bustling backstage area, microphone in hand. Her blue eyes sparkled under the harsh lights as she turned to the figure beside her: Jennifer Colton, the determined challenger for tonight’s MVW Women’s Tag Team Title main event.

Kellie Burkowski: Jennifer, tonight, you’re facing Victoria McGill, known for her sheer strength and power in the ring. How do you plan on countering that advantage?

Jennifer, with the gleam of confidence in her eyes, shifted her weight slightly, ready to address the question.

Jennifer Colton: Kellie, I just spent some time in Japan, training and wrestling alongside my brothers and cousin. There, I learned how to handle opponents who tower over me in size and strength…

She paused, a small but fierce smile playing on her lips.

Jennifer: I’ve faced giants before and came out on top. Victoria McGill and Jill Berg Enterprises might think they have the upper hand, but I’m no stranger to adversity.

Kellie: Is there anything specific you’ve adapted from your time in Japan that you think will give you the edge?

Jennifer: Absolutely, it’s all about leverage, speed, and technique. I’ll be using my technical prowess to outmaneuver Victoria. I want that title back, and nothing is going to stop me.

Kellie gave Jennifer an affirming nod.

Kellie: Thank you, Jennifer.  Back to you, Thunderbolt and Hall.

The camera cut away from Kellie and Jennifer, returning to the broadcast table where ‘Thunderbolt’ Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall were perched, digesting the interview.

Thunderbolt: Strong words from Jennifer Colton…

Thunderbolt adjusted his headset.

Thunderbolt: …she’s clearly not intimidated by the odds stacked against her.

Rick: Technique can beat power, Thunderbolt.  And if anyone can prove that true, it’s Jennifer Colton.  She’s beaten Tori before, she’s got grit, and she’s bringing a whole new arsenal back from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Thunderbolt: Indeed. Will Jennifer’s technical skills be enough to reclaim the MVW Women’s Tag Team Title? We’ll find out later tonight. But right now, we’ll take a quick break. Don’t go anywhere, folks!


SHOOT Project

The arena buzzed with anticipation, the air thick with the scent of popcorn and the roar of the crowd as “Search and Destroy” blared through the speakers. Heather Cooper stood in the center of the ring, her sultry voice cutting through the noise.

Heather: Our next match will be…

Again, she paused for dramatic effect.

“ONE FALL!” the audience erupted in unison, a ritual chant of wrestling aficionados.

Heather: Introducing first, accompanied by Dru Danes… RICKY STEVENS!”

Ricky Stevens walked onto the stage, his eyes ablaze with determination. He followed Dru down the ramp, slapping hands with the fans who reached out to touch a piece of the action.

Heather: And his opponent…”

My truck’s where my money goes… got buck blood on my Sunday clothes… and directions to a honey hole that I’ll never tell…”

The opening acapella start of Hardy’s “Unapologetically Country as Hell… a rugged country anthem… filled the arena, and Sunny O’Callahan emerged like a vision through the swirling blue and red fog. She struck a pose, bottle of Southern Comfort in hand.

Heather: He is the MVW CHAMPION! ‘REDNECK’ BILL DICKINSON!

Dickinson, the embodiment of raw power, ambled out to join Sunny, nodding at the crowd with a champion’s confidence. Together, they descended to ringside, the champ cracking his knuckles, ready for battle.

Thunderbolt: Bill Dickinson found out tonight that he will face Adam Ellis for the MVW Title two weeks from tonight in Des Moines, Iowa.

Rick: That is going to be interesting.  Ellis last wrestled Dickinson in 2022 during his three-month MVW Title run.

Thunderbolt: Well, Dru Danes made her presence felt, drawing referee Davey Keels into a distracting argument at the apron and Bill Dickinson seized the moment, his arm swinging wide with a steel-folding chair that connected with a sickening thud against Ricky Stevens’ skull and knocked him out cold. Rick

Rick: I’m stunned by the quick and brutal result.  Adam Ellis had better watch this. Bill Dickinson is still Bill Dickinson, and that might have been a message sent to Adam.

Thunderbolt: All right.  Bill Dickinson gets the win here on Wrestling Night in the Heartland and…

The script took an unexpected turn.

Thunderbolt: …Cary Stevens?

The Stevens Dynasty appeared on stage like avenging angels. Cary, the proud Texan patriarch, led Bo, George, and Scott down the ramp with deliberate steps, their intentions unclear.

Thunderbolt: They’re surrounding the ring.

Rick: Thunderbolt, Ricky Stevens was seduced into joining the Sports Entertainment Corporation and turned his back on the Stevens Dynasty.

Thunderbolt: Are they here to attack Ricky Stevens, their estranged kin?

The answer came swiftly. George Stevens, massive and unyielding, hammered a meaty forearm into Dickinson’s unsuspecting back.

Rick: NO!

The beatdown commenced, relentless and savage. Scott executed a Toxic Sting, stunning Dickinson. George hoisted the champ high and drove him down with a Texas-Sized Powerslam that shook the canvas.

Bo delivered his rolling cutter, each move a statement of dominance. Sunny frantically signaled for help as the assault continued unabated.

Then, “White Trash” by Chris Janson tore through the speakers.

Thunderbolt: IT’S THE ALABAMA GANG!

R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry, the Alabama Gang, charged down the ramp wielding steel folding chairs like instruments of justice.

*BAM*

Bo hit the floor.

*BAM*

Scott followed suit.

George, the mountain of a man, took a barrage of chair shots before collapsing. *BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM*—the sound echoed through the arena.

Amidst the chaos, Sunny seized the opportunity, delivering a low blow to Cary Stevens. As he doubled over in agony.

*BAM*—he too met the unforgiving steel.

Quickly, MVW Security run down to de-escalate the situation.

Thunderbolt: Main event is next.

The show cut to a commercial break, leaving the fans to catch their breath after the whirlwind of treachery and retribution.

Jill Berg Enterprises Interview
The camera cut to the bustling corridor backstage where Kellie Burkowski stood, microphone in hand, poised to deliver another pertinent interview. Her eyes, reflecting the anticipation of the viewers at home, were fixed on her guests: the power-suited CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises, Jill Berg, and the imposing MVW Women’s Champion Victoria McGill, who loomed beside her with the championship belt slung over her shoulder like a badge of honor.

Kellie: Jill—

Jill’s sharp voice sliced through the air, commanding attention.

Jill Berg: Stop right there, Kellie.

Jill had a smug tilt of her head, her gaze piercing the lens of the camera as if she were looking directly into the soul of every viewer.

Jill: I heard what that poor excuse for a contender, Jenny Colton, said earlier and frankly, it was nauseating.

Kellie’s words hung suspended, unspoken, as Jill continued her verbal onslaught without missing a beat.

Jill: Let me make this crystal clear. Jill Berg Enterprises is an unstoppable force—a juggernaut. Jennifer Colton can’t out-maneuver a juggernaut. We are about raw, undeniable power.

Victoria McGill, silent yet menacing, nodded in agreement, her eyes hidden behind dark shades, adding weight to Jill’s proclamation.

Jill’s mouth curved into a smile.

Jill: Tonight, we show Jenny Colton and the entire wrestling world that Jill Berg Enterprises Means Business!”

With that final emphatic statement, Jill gestured dismissively towards the camera, signaling the end of the interview. Kellie, knowing when the stage had been stolen, turned back to the camera.

Kellie: Back to you, Thunderbolt and Hall.

At the broadcast desk, ‘Thunderbolt’ Smith adjusted his headset, his face a mask of professionalism.

Thunderbolt: Strong words from Jill Berg.

“Long Haul” Rick Hall leaned in, the excitement brimming in his voice.

Rick: Folks, I’ve got goosebumps! If that doesn’t tell you what’s at stake tonight, nothing will.  Jill Berg just set the stage for the drama that’s about to unfold.

MAIN EVENT-MVW WOMEN’S TITLE: Victoria McGill © vs. Jennifer Colton
The scene shifted to the packed arena, where Heather Cooper took center stage, her sultry voice echoing through the charged atmosphere.

Heather: Ladies and gentlemen! Tonight’s main event will be…

She paused, allowing the crowd to erupt in unison, “ONE FALL!”, and smiled, soaking in the energy before continuing.

Heather: And it will be for…

The audience responded with equal fervor, “THE MISSOURI VALLEY WRESTLING WOMEN’S TITLE!”

The familiar chords of the Eagles’ “Heartache Tonight” filled the arena as Jennifer Colton emerged onto the stage.

Heather: Introducing the challenger… she is a former MVW Women’s champion… JENNIFER COLTON!

The young challenger exuded confidence, her feisty, technical style promising a spirited contest. She posed briefly before descending the ramp, slapping hands with the fans who reached out eagerly, their cheers providing the soundtrack to her determined march to the ring.

Heather: And her opponent…

Heather’s announcement was cut short by the ominous

*THUMP… THUMP… THUMP-THUMP-THUMP* that heralded the arrival of Jill Berg, flanked by her security detail and the monstrous Prisoner #034291.

Heather: …she is the reigning MVW WOMEN’S CHAMPION!  VICTORIA McGILL!

As Samantha Fish’s “Twisted Ambition” blared, Victoria McGill, made her entrance. Tori’s glare was fixed on Colton, the intensity in her eyes mirroring the thrumming bass line of her entrance theme. The title belt gleamed under the lights as she held it aloft, the physical embodiment of her power and dominance.

“Look at that focus, Rick,” Thunderbolt noted, his voice steady. “That’s the eyes of a champion who’s not ready to let go of her title.”

“Absolutely, Thunderbolt,” Hall agreed, the anticipation in his voice palpable. “Tori’s walking down with purpose. This isn’t just another match for her; it’s a statement.”

As McGill followed Jill’s procession to the ring, the tension between the two competitors was almost tangible, the main event now moments away from exploding into action.

WITH: CEO Jill Berg, Prisoner #034291

The metallic clang of the sledgehammer striking flesh resonated through the arena, and for a moment, the raucous crowd fell into stunned silence. Thunderbolt Smith’s voice pierced the quiet with urgency.

Thunderbolt: PRISONER #034291 JUST KNOCKED OUT JENNIFER COLTON WITH A SLEDGEHAMMER!

The disbelief in his tone mirrored the shock on the fans’ faces.

Rick: AND REFEREE CORRINA ROMANOV HAS DISQUALIFIED THE CHAMPION!

Confusion turned to anger amongst the crowd.

Rick: It’s going to be a pyrrhic victory for Jennifer Colton knowing full well that this was not how she wanted to win.

Thunderbolt: And now Jill Berg is in the ring reaming out referee Corrina Romanov for the DQ.

Jill Berg, ever the firebrand CEO, gave Romanov an earful, her every syllable dripping with venom for daring to disqualify McGill.

Victoria McGill rolled out of the ring, her eyes cold and calculating, as she delivered a series of brutal boots to the unconscious Jennifer Colton. Pulling Colton up in a gutwrench position, McGill showcased her raw power.

Thunderbolt: Wait a minute.  Victoria McGill’s about to hit the Gutwrench Facebuster on Jennifer Colton-

Before McGill could execute the move, the crowd erupted into a cacophony of cheers and jeers.

Rick: That’s Amberley Stanton!

Stanton, still driven by fury over McGill knocking her out with a foreign object in the finals of the Carmondy Cup, charged down the aisle like a woman possessed and tackled McGill from behind.

Thunderbolt: HERE WE GO!

Stanton landed a flurry of punches, but it was short-lived. The looming shadow of Prisoner #034291 descended upon her, and with a monstrous sweep of her arm, snatched Stanton up.

Rick: That’s not good.

Then she slammed Stanton to the floor with a devastating two-handed chokeslam.

Rick: Not good at all.

Thunderbolt: TORI McGILL!

Not satisfied with one victim, McGill then executed the Gutwrench Facebuster on Stanton.

Thunderbolt: GUTWRENCH FACEBUSTER TO THE FLOOR AND STANTON’S BEEN KNOCKED OUT, TOO!

Leaving Stanton motionless on the mat, McGill turned and told Prisoner #034291 to pull Colton back up.

Thunderbolt: Oh, this isn’t good.

Rick: They’re going to try and finish her off right here.

As the villainous Prisoner #034291 dragged Colton back to her feet, preparing to unleash another chokeslam, the atmosphere changed in an instant…

“Put ‘Em In The Grave” by Jedi Mind Tricks suddenly blared over the PA system.

Rick: What the-

…the arena shook with excitement, the sound wave nearly ripping the roof off.

Thunderbolt: Wait, is that-

Lindsay Troy and Daryn Thompson burst onto the stage and rushed down to the ring with a purpose.

Rick THAT’S LINDSAY TROY!

Thunderbolt: AND DARYN THOMPSON’S WITH HER!

Rick: Oh, and there’s no love lost between Daryn Thompson and JBE either.

In a breathtaking aerial assault, Troy leaped, driving her knees with pinpoint accuracy into Prisoner #034291’s face.

Thunderbolt: QUEEN’S GAMBIT!

The move connected with such force that even the monstrous behemoth crumbled to the ground.

Rick was barely able to contain his astonishment.

Rick: Prisoner #034291 is out!

In the ensuing bedlam, McGill scrambled to escape but found herself caught by the Texas Technician. Thompson hurled McGill face-first into the unforgiving steel of the ring post, stunning the champion.

Thunderbolt: Tori McGill tried to make a run for it but Daryn Thompson isn’t having it.

Taking full advantage of McGill’s dazed state, Troy maneuvered her around and set her up for a package piledriver…

Thunderbolt: THY KINGDOM COME!

…that left McGill sprawled and unmoving.

Troy and Thompson turned their glare towards a suddenly vulnerable CEO standing all by herself in the ring.

Thunderbolt: Uh oh.

Jill Berg mouthed ‘uh oh’.  But before anything else happened, her security detail swarmed the area, lifting their CEO and retreating from the battlefield.

Rick: She’s taking that golden parachute and getting out of Dodge.

Thunderbolt: What an end to this show! Jennifer Colton gets the win, but Victoria McGill leaves with the title.  We’ll see you next week!

As the dust settled, Lindsay Troy and Daryn Thompson tended to the fallen warriors, checking on both Colton and Amberley Stanton. Their concern was palpable, a stark contrast to the carnage that JBE had intended to leave in their wake, the last powerful visual before the screen faded to black, concluding another unforgettable night in Missouri Valley Wrestling history.
