Thunderbolt Hall is standing in the center of the ring and welcomes everyone to Wrestling Night in America… live from the Hale Arena in Kansas City, Missouri.  Thunderbolt says there is a packed house and the energy in this arena is absolutely electric tonight.

Cut to a montage of shots showcasing various signs held by enthusiastic fans in the crowd supporting their favorite wrestlers, mainly: The Hanson Sisters, Surf Express Bro, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, and the Alabama Gang.

There’s a quick cut of two young girls at the show with their parents, dressed up like The Hanson Sisters. 

‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall agrees. He says MVW fans have come from far and wide to witness the spectacle that is about to unfold here tonight and he doesn’t think they’ll be disappointed. 

Thunderbolt doesn’t waste any time and sends it to the ring for our first match of the evening.

**Special Attraction Match: Kings of Wild Frontier (Boone Daniels and Crockett Davies) vs Murray Brothers (Bob and Brett Murray)**

The lovely Heather Cooper enters the ring to introduce the night’s first match.

Daniels and Davies also pose on the stage. Then they walk down the ramp and slap hands of the fans.

-Daniels and Davies are a very young team. They put up a great fight against Masters of the Moscowverse, Kenny Freeman and Randall Schwartz last Sunday at the PWA-02 super show.  Everything was going good until The Russian Bear Ivan Stanislav ‘yeeted’ Davies through a table and it all went downhill from there.
-The Murrays are ranked #5 in the Men’s Tag Team contender’s ranking.  They are also young and trying to make their impression here in MVW.

The referee for our opener will be Davey Keels and this match is underway.

Boone Daniels and Bob Murray to start. Daniels went for a quick kick on Bob. Flying elbow by Daniels and he hooked Bob’s leg for a two-count before tagging out to Crockett Davies. Davies bounces off the ropes and hit a flying Hart Attack clothesline on Bob.  He hooks his leg for a two-count. However, Bob retaliated by elbowing Davies in the face to break a hammerlock and then crushing him with a big leg drop. Bob then tagged out to Brett Murray, who attempted a flying elbow off the top rope but had poor elevation. Despite this, he managed to cover Davies, but there was a last-second kick-out. Brett then executed a big dropkick with good elevation, but Davies dropped out the back of a bodyslam attempt. Boone Daniels tagged in and hit an arm drag on Brett before Brett tagged out to Bob. Bob walked right into a spinning heel kick and was in big trouble. The match ended with a Double Shotgun Lariat, followed by a 1-2-3 count.

WINNER: The Kings of the Wild Frontier

Nice win for the Kings of the Wild Frontier.  Hall notes that the two teams will meet again on July 22nd in a promotion/relegation match.  If the Kings of the Frontier win, they are promoted to the Men’s Tag Team Division and the Murray Brothers are relegated out.  If the Murray’s win, there are no changes.

**MATCH #1: Working Girls (C.J. Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris) vs Rose Warriors (Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose)**

Close match but The Working Girls get a much-needed victory here at Wrestling Night in America.

Kellie Burkowski joins Lewis and Iris in the ring after the match.  Lewis tells Kellie it was definitely an intense battle out there, but they’re feeling ecstatic right now for getting a big win.  She attributes the win to their teamwork and preparation. She’s worked with Leah for years, and they have built a strong bond both inside and outside the ring.  Leah agrees and says C.J. and her trust each other implicitly and when you have that level of unity, it becomes a game-changer inside the ring.  Kellie asks about getting back into the title picture. Lewis says their main goal is to do exactly that. We had a taste of getting a title shot before, and nothing motivates us more than the desire to do it again. Iris add “and this time win.”

Luke says Joe and Dawn McGill both know the ins and outs of wrestling and taught him the importance of discipline, dedication, and most importantly, respect for the sport. Woods wants to push himself even further, face new challenges, and continue to grow as a wrestler and with the foundation laid at Bergman’s Barn, he thinks he can achieve anything.

-Jill Berg Enterprises covets bringing the tag belts back to JBE.  Carrigan and Prisoner #034291 have to wrestle their match and not get caught up in brawling with the Hansons.

Bailey Jenkins will be the referee and the bell sounds.

No doubt there.  Prisoner #034291 couldn’t get there in time and the Hanson Sisters retain the Women’s Team Title.   Hall says the night for the SEC-JBE alliance will go down as being mixed.  Early wins.  Tough losses later on. 

Kellie Burkowski Coach Reg with her.  Coach Reg couldn’t be prouder of her wrestlers.  She says tonight was a gut check against a team highly motivated to wrest the belts from the Hansons’s hands and Andrea and Melissa came through with flying colors.  There’s no doubt in Coach Reg’s mind that the Hansons are THE best Women’s Tag Team in Missouri Valley Wrestling.

Thunderbolt Smith: COLTON DID IT! 

The crowd roars as Corrina raises Colton’s arm in victory.  But before, Ray McAvay and Joe Bergman can come out to award Colton the title belt, Jill Berg Enterprises hits the ring.   Prisoner #034291 decks Thompson with a clothesline.  Carrigan spears Colton and starts raining down right hands on her. 

The crowd roars again.  Her comes Victoria McGill racing down to the ring.  Tori slides into the ring and lines up with both Thompson and Colton.  It’s even three v. three right now. 


Carrigan runs in… CANADIAN DESTROYER TO THOMPSON!  Thompson somehow staggers back up… Prisoner #034291 grabs her by the throat by both hands….



Krueger jumps off the stage and sprints down the ramp to the ring.  The crowd pops when the Coltons also appear and climbs into the ring.  Krueger gives the women in the ring ‘No Quarter’ and proceeds to send McGill and Tessa Martin flying out of the ring.  Dennis and Benny Colton whips Carrigan over the top rope t the floor.  

Krueger stares at Jill Berg.  Prisoner #034291 grabs Berg and protects her by getting her out of harm’s way.

Finally, Ray McAvay and Joe Bergman emerge from the back.  They climb into the ring and award Jennifer the MVW Women’s Title belt.

The Coltons then all embrace in the center of the ring. 

Two title changes.  Could there be a third?
