Opening:
A capacity crowd gathered for a big night of pro wrestling action.

From the broadcast table and talking over cheering fans, Thunderbolt Smith’s voice boomed”Hello everyone and welcome to Wrestling Night in America!  We are coming to you tonight from the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri for tonight’s Spring Fling supershow!”

‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall leaned into the microphone, voice tinged with a hint of gravel from years behind the desk. “That’s right Thunderbolt.  Four huge matches tonight. Two big tag team grudge matches.  And then a Men’s and Women’s Spring Fling Stampede match.  Folks, you won’t want to miss a second of the action!”

Thunderbolt and Hall ran down the lineup for tonight’s show:

Your winner,” Heather Cooper bellowed into the microphone, “at sixteen minutes and twelve seconds… R.G. JENKINS!”

“Another surprise!” Thunderbolt said as Jenkins is joined by his fellow Alabama Gang co-hort Mark Hendry and they both drink a beer in the ring.

“I did not have R.G. Jenkins or Ninja Kitty winning those two matches,” admitted Rick Hall.  “Especially with the likes of No Quarter’s Bracken Krueger and Daryn Thompson in both matches.  Jenkins wrestles with a grit and that helped him survive this match.”

Again, Thunderbolt and Hall did a quick recap and sent it to the next commercial break.

WARGAMES MATCH: Team Hall vs. Team Sykes vs. Team Avalon vs. Team Farthington

“And we are back,” Thunderbolt said.  “There has been a lot of bad feelings between MVW Women’s Champion Jennifer Colton, former champion Victoria McGill, and Tori’s faction Jill Berg Enterprises.  Tonight, both sides settle their issues in an eight-woman tag team match.”

“That’s right, Thunderbolt,” Hall replied.  “Jenny Colton and Tori McGill have waged war against each other for several months going back to the fall of last year.  There’s ZERO love lost between Colton and Jill Berg Enterprises. Add to that mix Amberley Stanton who’s still pissed that McGill clocked her with a foreign object in the finals of the Carmondy Cup back in December.”

Thunderbolt nodded at Rick.  “Factor in the Working Girls… Caroline Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris… the antithesis of the Jill Berg Enterprises’s corporate mindset and what we have is a damn good match in the making.”

Thunderbolt motioned to Heather Cooper in the ring.

“Heather,” he said.  “It’s all yours.”

Back to the ring…

“AND JILL BERG ENTERPRISES GOES DOWN!” Rick Hall yelled.

Heather Cooper rolled into the ring. “Your winner at thirty-eight minutes and thirty seconds… the team of Jennifer Colton, Amberley Stanton, and The Working Girls- Caroline Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris!”

“WHAT… A… MATCH!” Thunderbolt breathlessly encapsulating the moment as Jennifer Colton hugged Amberley Stanton, Caroline Lewis, and Leah Iris in the center of the ring.

Hall concurred.  “Thunderbolt, vindication for Colton and Stanton.  Huge win for the Working Girls as they will face Jill Berg Enterprises next Tuesday night in Hastings, Minnesota for the MVW Women’s Tag Team Title.”

Thunderbolt stepped in.  “We are way late for a commercial break. Back after this.

SHOOT Project

As the victors bask in their win, the situation in the Jill Berg Enterprises corner was diametrically different.  A fuming Jill Berg shook her head while her women… Sheline Carrigan, Madison Miller, Victoria McGill, and Felicia LaBarbara looked on in shock.


CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises
Jill Berg

Finally, Berg snapped and grabbed Victoria by the arm.  She spun her around and pointed her finger in Tori’s face.  Then she demanded a microphone and snatched it all of Heather Cooper’s hand.

“Uh oh,” Hall muttered.

Jill’s face turned beet red.  “WHAT THE **BLEEP** WAS THAT?”

Tori tried to turn away but Jill again grabbed her and forced McGill to look down at her.

“ANSWER ME!” Jill insisted, yelling at full volume at Victoria.  “WHAT IN THE **BLEEP** WAS THAT!  YOU DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING DURING THE MATCH!  NOTHING!  IT WAS THREE AGAINST FOUR OUT THERE!  **BLEEP**-DAMMIT TORI!”

Again Victoria attempted to get away from Jill.  The other three women in the ring simply observed the in-ring dress down without comment.

“THIS IS UNACCEPT-“

“HOLD ON!…” Thunderbolt shouted.

Jill whirled around.  Her eyes widened when she saw the six-foot woman standing over Berg’s diminutive frame.


“…IT’S DAWN McGILL!”

The crowd roared as McGill… the mother of one Victoria McGill… glared down at Jill Berg- a woman of whom Dawn has had past issues with.

Jill Berg glared right back and both women don’t back down.

This allowed Victoria to slip out of the ring and return up the ramp… by herself.

“It’s a developing situation,” Thunderbolt commented.  “Main event next.  Stevens Dynasty versus The Sports Entertainment Corporation after these messages.”
