Contenders attempt to move up in the rankings through a series of matches at MVW’s house shows. For example:

Once a month, the lowest ranked contender in the top division will meet the highest ranked contender in the Heartland division. The winner is either promoted up to or retains their spot in the top division. The loser is relegated down or remains in the Heartland division.
The same is true for the lowest ranked wrestler in the Men’s and Women’s Heartland Division.
The setup is also the same for the tag team divisions except there are no Heartland tag team divisions.
