-This turned into a war. Again Jenkins and Hendry struggled but all credit to Abrams and Nelson who showed up to fight and gave The Alabama Gang everything they could handle.
NON-TITLE: Men’s Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson defeated Buckshot Henderson at 11:18
-Henderson also showed up well but right now, Bill Dickinson is just… Bill Dickinson.
WOMEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: The Hanson Sisters (Andrea and Melissa Hanson) © defeated #1 Jill Berg Enterprises (Sheline Carrigan and Prisoner #034291) via count-out at 21:53
-Carrigan and Prisoner #034291 have to be kicking themselves… again… for allowing the Hansons to goad them into a brawl on the floor. It’s cost them three times now. Jill Berg was furious.
WOMEN’S TITLE: Jennifer Colton © vs. #1 Victoria McGill- double count-out at 13:19
-Jill Berg may have cost Tori the match twice when she had Colton in a pinfall but referee Corrina Romanov was distracted by the CEO of JBE. Colton errored when she threw McGill out of the ring by JBE’s corner and then followed only to get jumped by Tessa Martin and later Carrigan and Prisoner #034291.
POST SHOW SCRUM
The post-show media scrum buzzed with excitement, the air thick with anticipation as MVW wrestlers and personalities gathered around. The room was a cacophony of voices and camera shutters clicking away, capturing every moment for posterity. At the center of this whirlwind stood ‘Sports Entertainment Genius,’ Mr. McMann, his face a mixture of smugness and discontent.
“Let me tell you something,” he began, addressing the eager reporters. “There were only forty-three minutes of actual wrestling action tonight. Forty-three! Where’s the sports entertainment?” His voice dripped with frustration, his eyes scanning the crowd as if looking for validation. “I submitted a revised script to Ray McAvay and Joe Bergman, but did they even bother to look at it? No!”
A murmur rumbled through the crowd, some nodding in agreement while others looked skeptical.
“The good news is Ricky Stevens passed a big hurdle tonight, sure,” McMann continued. “But expectations at the Sports Entertainment Corporation are high, and he needs to find a way to take down ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson in two weeks. His job is to bring the Men’s Title to the SEC.” He then shifted gears, turning his attention to the Women’s Tag Team Champions. “And don’t even get me started on the Hansons. They’re not sports entertainment. The Hansons are hockey players dressed up like pro wrestlers. The Hansons aren’t championship material, yet McAvay continues to book them to be the champions. Sheline Carrigan and Prisoner #034291 would make more sports entertainment credible champions than The Hanson Sisters.”
“Then there’s Jennifer Colton?” he scoffed, shaking his head. “She’s the champion, but Victoria McGill is the one doing all the chasing. McGill has the ‘sports entertainment look’… Tori is a champion. Colton should be the plucky face chasing the appropriate champion… in this case, Victoria McGill… for the title, not the other way around!”
As the media digested McMann’s words, Women’s Champion Jennifer Colton sat backstage at a table, her brow furrowed with anger.
Her fingers gripped the edge of the table, knuckles turning white as she rehashed the night’s events in her mind.
“I’ve just about had it with Jill Berg Enterprises,” she muttered under her breath, recalling the four-on-one beatdown at ringside after retaining her title when she and Victoria McGill were counted out. “I’m not going to put up with this anymore.”
When asked about Mr. McMann’s comments by a nearby reporter, Colton looked up with fire in her eyes. “McMann can kiss my ass,” she spat, her defiance shining through.
Backstage, Kellie Burkowski’s heels clicked against the concrete floor as she walked with purpose, her microphone held firmly in hand. She was determined to get a word from CEO Jill Berg of Jill Berg Enterprises, and she spotted her quarry leaning against a wall, arms crossed and scowling.
“Jill, can I ask you about tonight’s events?” Kellie ventured cautiously.
“Fine,” Jill snapped, her tone icy. “But make it quick.”
“Okay. What are your thoughts on Sheline Carrigan and Prisoner #034291’s loss to the Hanson Sisters?” Kellie asked, trying to keep her voice steady.
“Disappointing,” Jill replied curtly, her eyes narrowing. “We warned them about letting the Hansons turn this into a brawl and getting caught out of the ring. Not concerned. They’ll bounce back.” She seemed poised to walk away, but Kellie pressed on.
“During the Colton-McGill match, you had the referee’s attention twice while McGill was attempting a pin. Can you comment on that?”
Jill’s face turned crimson, her rage boiling over. “You insinuating something, kid?” she snarled, taking a menacing step toward Kellie. “I don’t have to explain myself to you or anyone else!” With a whirl, she stormed off, her lackeys quickly forming a protective barrier between their boss and the persistent interviewer.
Kellie sighed, knowing she’d hit a nerve. She turned her attention to Cary Stevens, patriarch of the Stevens Dynasty. He sat nearby, glaring at everyone who dared to approach him. Kellie hesitated for a moment before moving closer.
“Mr. Stevens, may I ask you about the ending of the Stevens Dynasty-Kings of the Wild Frontier match?”
“Go ahead,” Cary grumbled, his thick Texan accent dripping with disdain.
“You climbed into the ring and knocked Davies out after George Stevens whipped him into and took out Ron Martin. What’s your take on that?”
“Damn right, it’s all Crockett Davies’s fault for taking out referee Ron Martin. It’s his fault!” Cary barked, slamming his fist down on the table. “He took out referee Ron Martin, and I wasn’t about to let him get away with that, so I hopped in and knocked some sense into him!”
“But some argue that your actions only escalated the situation,” Kellie pressed, feeling the heat of Cary’s ire.
Cary shot up from his seat, towering over Kellie. “I don’t give a damn what ‘some’ say!” he growled, flipping off the assembled press. “We do things our way, and if anyone has a problem with that, they can shove it!” With that, he stomped off, leaving Kellie and the rest of the media to digest his words and the explosive backstage encounters they’d just witnessed.
Coach Reg, The Hanson Sisters
Kellie watched as Coach Reg and the Hanson Sisters confidently strode into the room, their heads held high after their victory over Sheline Carrigan and Prisoner #034291. The sisters’ faces glowed with a mix of sweat and triumph, while their coach’s eyes sparkled with pride. Kellie approached them, microphone in hand.
“Coach Reg, congratulations on your team’s win tonight. What are your thoughts on the match?” she asked, her voice steady and professional.
“Thank you, Kellie,” Coach Reg replied, his voice booming with enthusiasm. “Jill Berg Enterprises just never learns, do they? Our girls thrive when the match turns into an all-out brawl, and tonight was no exception. No one can beat the Hanson Sisters when we’re allowed to fight our way, and JBE should know that by now. I’ve always said the Hansons are the best women’s tag team ever in MVW, and they keep proving it time and time again!”
The room buzzed with excitement at Coach Reg’s passionate declaration, and Kellie couldn’t help but smile at the infectious energy radiating from the trio. She knew that the Hansons’ tenacity and talent were what kept the fans coming back for more.
As the questions for the Hansons and their coach continued, Kellie noticed MVW owners Ray McAvay and Joe Bergman slip into the room. Their faces were stern, but there was a twinkle in their eyes as they assessed the media scrum. Sensing an opportunity, Kellie made her way over to them.
“Mr. McAvay, Mr. Bergman, may I ask for your thoughts on tonight’s show and Mr. McMann’s earlier comments?”
Ray McAvay, Joe Bergman
“Mr. McAvay, Mr. Bergman,” Kellie began, her brows furrowing in annoyance. “Any thoughts on tonight’s show and Mr. McMann’s comments?”
Ray McAvay sighed heavily before answering, his voice dripping with contempt. “We want to make it plain that Mr. McMann’s opinions are none of MVW’s business. We don’t need scripts here; our wrestlers have always been capable of telling their own stories in the ring.”
Joe Bergman nodded curtly, adding, “We are fed up with people like McMann coming in here and trying to impose his outlandish ideas of ‘sports entertainment’ into our company. We will continue to uphold the standards that we have set for ourselves and look forward to the upcoming pay-per-view show Heartland on September 24th.”
“Thank you both for your time,” Kellie concluded, her respect for these two men swelling within her chest. As she watched them leave, she knew that despite the constant battles and controversies, the heart of MVW would continue to beat strong, fueled by the passion of its wrestlers, coaches, and fans.
