LISA BARBOSA-STEVENS INTERVIEW
-Kellie speaks with Barbosa-Stevens after the match. Lisa talks about the upheaval in her life the past few weeks and says she won’t let what going on in her personal life as an excuse for losing tonight. She came into this ring and gave it her all, and unfortunately, it wasn’t enough. Lisa says she’ll be back. She won’t let one loss define her. She’ll keep fighting and pushing myself to be the best wrestler she can be.
HEARTLAND REPORT with KELLIE BURKOWSKI
-Women’s Heartland Division: ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin defeated Women’s Heartland champion Victoria McGill earlier tonight to win the title for the 6th time. Post-match, Jill Berg Enterprises stormed the ring and attacked McGill until Jennifer Colton ran down to make the save.
-Men’s Heartland Division: Luke Woods put an end to Scott Stevens Men’s Heartland title reign with a big win over the High Octane Wrestling Hall of Famer. This is Woods’s first Heartland title reign.
KARDOUCHEIAN EMPIRE SEGMENT
-Kris Kardoucheian comes out and says his sons were the greatest sports entertainers in show business. He says the Kardoucheian Empire were scheduled to face off against a couple of no-names in a regular tag team match but that’s not good enough for me. He demands that the match be for the Men’s Tag Team title or else his sons will not wrestle tonight. This brings out MVW owner Ray McAvay who’s not in the mood for this tonight. McAvay tells Kardoucheian that either his sons wrestle tonight or else they are finished in MVW. However, the Men’s Tag Team Champions Surf Express Bro come out and they accept the challenge.
