Opening
The raucous energy of the Hulman Arena pulsed through the airwaves as Thunderbolt Smith’s smooth, steady voice welcomed viewers to another electrifying edition of Wrestling Night in the Heartland. “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, we’re coming to you LIVE from Terre Haute, Indiana, where the crowd is on their feet for an explosive night of action!”

“Rick, you can feel the electricity here tonight!” Thunderbolt exclaimed, his calm demeanor anchoring the excitement as the camera panned across a sea of cheering fans waving signs and banners.

“Absolutely, Thunderbolt!” ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall chimed in, unable to contain his enthusiasm. His voice provided a colorful contrast to Thunderbolt’s composed commentary. “The stakes are high, and these fans know it!”

Without missing a beat, the broadcast cut to the ring where The SEC and Surf Express Bro were already embroiled in a heated exchange, battling for the #2 spot in a MVW Tag Team contender’s match.

That’s it!” shouted Hall, jumping from his seat as the referee’s hand slapped the mat for the final count.

“The Alabama Kid hits the Crimson Tide and that’s it for Bradlee Nelson and Surf Express Bro,” commented Thunderbolt.  “The SEC wins and they solidify their position as the #2 contenders.”

As the victors celebrated in the ring, Thunderbolt smoothly transitioned to what was still to come. “What a way to start the show! But folks, that’s just the beginning. Tonight, we have The Working Girls facing off against The Hanson Sisters in a Women’s Tag Team #1 contender’s match.”

“Talk about a clash of styles, Thunderbolt. That one’s gonna be a wild one!” Hall predicted with a grin.

“Indeed,” Thunderbolt continued, unfazed by the chaos of victory celebrations around him. “‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki will go toe-to-toe with Victoria McGill of Jill Berg Enterprises in a Women’s #1 contender’s match.”

“In a match between two teams who do not like each other at all, No Quarter is looking to dethrone The Stevens Dynasty for the MVW Tag Team Title,” Hall added eagerly, “and in our main event, it doesn’t get any bigger than this—’Redneck’ Bill Dickinson defends the MVW Title against the SEC’s own Luke Woods.”

“An action-packed lineup that you do not want to miss,” Thunderbolt said, bringing a sense of grandeur to the announcement. “Stay tuned, because after the break, the road to the MVW championship continues right here on Wrestling Night in the Heartland!”

With a nod from Thunderbolt, the screen faded to the first commercial break.

High Octane Wrestling

As the raucous cheers from the crowd dipped into a momentary hush, Thunderbolt Smith’s rich baritone voice filled the arena, “We are back, folks! And without further ado, let’s send it back to the ring with the incomparable Heather Cooper!”

MATCH #2-#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM: #1 The Working Girls (Caroline Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris) vs. #2 The Hanson Sisters (Andrea and Melissa Hanson)
Heather was impossible to miss; she donned a shimmering burgundy bodysuit that clung to her curves like a second skin, accented with glittering rhinestones that sparkled under the arena lights. Her brunette locks cascaded over her shoulders as she lifted the microphone with a confident smile playing on her lips.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” her sultry voice boomed, “the following match is scheduled for…” The audience erupted in unison, shouting “ONE FALL!” with the fervor of a hundred thunderclaps.

“…and it is to determine the number one contenders for the MVW Women’s Tag Team Championship!” Heather continued, as anticipation crackled through the air.

The opening bars of Warren Zevon’s “Hit Somebody (The Hockey Song)” blasted through the speakers, and the Hanson Sisters—Andrea, Melissa, and Charissa—stormed out, their expressions a fusion of ferocity and focus. They wore matching hockey uniforms, complete with faux shoulder pads and elbow guards, paying homage to their entrance music.

“Introducing first,” Heather announced, “the former three-time MVW Women’s Tag Team champions, The Hanson Sisters!”

“Long Haul” Rick Hall leaned forward, his voice tinged with excitement, “Remember, Thunderbolt, these gals just took down The Rose Warriors this past Saturday night to earn their spot here tonight.”

“Absolutely, Rick. They’re looking to reclaim those titles and they’re hungry for victory,” Thunderbolt replied, acknowledging their tenacity.

“And their opponents,” Heather continued.

Leah Iris strutted out to the sounds of Donnie Iris’s “Ah Leah,” her stride exuding confidence and sass. She blew kisses to the audience, who cheered her on with gusto, as she made her way to the ring.

“Queen Cool’ Leah Iris! Her partner,” Heather continued as the opening notes of Donna Summer’s “She Works Hard for the Money” replaced the previous song, “Caroline Lewis!”

Caroline emerged, power-walking with purpose, her attire a nod to the everyday woman—a blend of workwear and athletic gear, symbolizing her working-class roots.

“They are… THE WORKING GIRLS!”

“From bell to bell, these two don’t take a break,” Hall quipped, referring to The Working Girls’ renowned resilience.

“Indeed, they’re known for their endurance and tenacity,” Thunderbolt added, nodding in agreement.

Referee Bailey Jenkins stood poised in the center of the ring, ready to call the action fairly and keep the contest in check.

“Thunderbolt,” Hall called out, “Andrea Hanson grabbed a baseball bat from beneath the ring and swung it with reckless abandon, connecting with both Leah and Caroline and knocked them out.

The crowd gasped and jeered as Charissa joined her sisters and The Hanson Sisters attacked the incapacitated Working Girls, stomping away mercilessly.

“Come on, this is uncalled for!” Thunderbolt exclaimed, disgust woven into his words.

“It’s the way the Hansons do business.” Hall then shouted, “MVW Security, we need you out here now!”

Security guards swarmed the ring, pulling The Hanson Sisters off their prone opponents and escorting them away, while Heather Cooper made the official announcement.  “Your winners at 4:12 by disqualification… the Working Girls!”

“Despite the chaos, The Working Girls have earned themselves a shot at the MVW Women’s Tag Team title,” Thunderbolt declared, his voice steady amidst the disorder.

“Jill Berg Enterprises better be watching closely,” Hall added, “because in two weeks, they’ll have to deal with this level of determination and grit.”

“Once again, security has restored order, but the message has been sent. This tag team division is as competitive as ever,” Thunderbolt concluded, as the camera panned over the recovering Working Girls, the realization of their victory slowly sinking in despite the pain. “All right, We’ll be back with more action after these commercial messages.”

The Sports Entertainment Corporation Segment
Back from break… Corporate Sports (Entertainment) Programming Nation’s reporter Rebecca Morris stood poised backstage before the camera, microphone in hand, her professional smile unwavering as she prepared to delve into the latest controversy shaking the foundations of MVW.

“Fans, I’m here with none other than the ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Triple R and the ‘SEC Mouthpiece’ Phil Finebaum,” Rebecca announced, turning to face the two men whose expressions were smug with confidence.  “Triple R, you have to be happy about the result earlier tonight against Surf Express Bro.”

Triple R, dressed in his signature suit, leaned into the camera, the glint of calculation in his eyes. “Rebecca, it’s high time Surf Express Bro realized the importance of following the narrative we’ve crafted,” he said, tapping a stack of papers he held in his hand—the ‘script’ for the evening’s events.

Phil Finebaum, always ready to echo the sentiments of his colleague, nodded in agreement. “It’s about putting on the show the fans deserve,” he added, his voice carrying that persuasive tone he was known for. “And they deserve the best… sports entertainment… money can buy and that’s the SEC!”

“Tonight, Luke Woods goes for the MVW title,” Rebecca went on.  “Your thoughts about the match?”

“Speaking of the script,” Triple R continued, flipping a page with a dramatic flourish, “it says right here that Luke Woods is going to do us all a favor by ending Bill Dickinson’s 600-plus day reign as champion. Tonight marks a new era.”

“Thanks Triple R and Phil Finebaum,” Rebecca finished up.

Kellie Burkowski Interviews Cary Stevens of the Stevens Dynasty
As Triple R and Finebaum shared a knowing glance, the scene shifted seamlessly to another part of the bustling backstage area. Kellie Burkowski, MVW’s bright-eyed interviewer, stood next to Cary Stevens, whose rugged physique and intense stare spoke volumes of his Texas heritage.

“Kellie Burkowski here with Cary Stevens of The Stevens Dynasty,” Kellie introduced. “Cary, The Stevens Dynasty’s MVW Tag Team title defense with No Quarter is later on tonight. Your thoughts?”

Cary’s jaw clenched, a fire of determination in his steely gaze. His voice carried a raw edge, the kind that only comes from years of hard-fought battles inside the squared circle. “Kellie, my boys and I, we’re Texas through and through. We don’t know the meaning of holdin’ back,” he stated, his drawl emphasizing each word. “We are the best tag team MVW has ever seen, and tonight, we’re gonna prove it again. No Quarter ain’t got no chance.”

His words resonated with the unyielding spirit of competition, a testament to the heart of professional wrestling.

“Thank you, Cary,” Kellie wrapped up, giving the camera a nod as Thunderbolt Smith’s voice took over.

“Stay tuned, folks,” Thunderbolt’s calm, measured tone echoed through the television sets, “as we’re heading to our second commercial break. But don’t go anywhere—MVW action continues right after this.”

The arena buzzed with the electric aftermath of a commercial break, anticipation thick in the air. Thunderbolt Smith’s steady voice filled the living rooms of countless wrestling fans. “Ladies and gentlemen,” he began, his tone reflecting the gravity of the situation, “Victoria McGill has hit a rough patch as of late. Just last week, Tori received a disappointing mid-year review, and tonight, her road to redemption goes through ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki in a #1 contender’s match.”

“Can Tori pull it together?” pondered ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, his voice tinged with concern yet vibrant with excitement for the bout ahead. “She’s got heart, Thunderbolt, but tonight she’s up against a wall.”

“Indeed she is, Rick,” agreed Thunderbolt. “Let’s send it down to Heather Cooper in the ring for the introductions.”

MATCH #3-#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-WOMEN’S DIVISION: #1 Victoria McGill vs. #2 Shizuko Yamazaki
Heather Cooper, the embodiment of sultry elegance, stood center stage, her curves accentuated by a form-fitting dress that sparkled beneath the arena lights. As the first chords of One OK Rock’s “Clock Strikes” reverberated throughout the venue, she lifted the microphone to her lips.

“Making her way to the ring,” Heather announced with a confident sensuality, “from Kyoto, Japan, ‘The Shadow Warrior,’ Shizuko Yamazaki!”

THEME MUSIC: “Clock Strikes”- One OK Rock

The crowd erupted into a mix of cheers and jeers as the fierce Japanese sensation strode down the ramp, her eyes locked on the squared circle, the very picture of focused determination. Every step was precise, every movement calculated—Yamazaki was in her element, ready for battle.

“Next,” Heather continued once the music faded, “please welcome the CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises, Jill Berg!”

A chorus of boos rained down as the imperious Jill Berg made her entrance, flanked by an intimidating six-person security detail.

Her gaze swept over the masses with a disdain only matched by her power-suited poise. At her side shuffled Prisoner #034291, a silent testament to the iron grip Jill held over her domain.

Then, without warning, the defiant bluesy riff of Samantha Fish’s “Twisted Ambition” cut through the tension. The crowd’s mood shifted from hostile to electrified as Victoria ‘Tori’ McGill burst onto the stage, her energy infectious, her eyes burning with the fire to prove herself amidst adversity.

“From St. Louis, Missouri,” Heather declared, her voice rising above the din, “Victoria McGill!”

Tori pounded her chest and pointed to the roaring fans, her connection with them undeniable. She dashed down the ramp, slid under the bottom rope, and popped to her feet, ready to face whatever fate awaited her in the ring.

“After a grueling 22 minutes and 38 seconds of high-flying maneuvers, punishing holds, and near falls, it is Shizuko Yamazaki who stands victorious,” Thunderbolt announced.

Tori lay motionless on the canvas, her dreams dashed by a knockout blow.

“Your winner, at 22:38, ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki!” Heather’s voice rang out, clear and professional, even as Yamazaki celebrated her hard-fought victory.

Jill Berg’s presence loomed large as she stomped into the ring, her face a mask of scorn. Without hesitation, she delivered the crushing blow to Tori’s career, firing the unconscious wrestler then and there before exiting with an air of cold finality.

“Unbelievable!” exclaimed Thunderbolt, shock coloring his normally composed commentary. “After such a valiant effort, to be fired on the spot…”

“Great match though, Thunderbolt,” interjected Hall, ever the color commentator. “It’s a real shame someone had to lose tonight.”

“Indeed, but folks,” Thunderbolt concluded, the weight of the moment heavy in his voice, “we’ll be right back after this commercial break.”

SHOOT Project

The screen flickered back to life after the brief interlude of commercials, and there it was: the replay of the dramatic moment that had everyone buzzing. Thunderbolt Smith’s steady voice filled the air as he narrated the chaos that had ensued in the ring moments earlier. “Folks, if you’re just joining us, you’ve missed Jill Berg dismissing Victoria McGill from Jill Berg Enterprises,” he began, the gravity of the situation reflected in his even-keeled tone.

On the screen, Victoria McGill stood in the center of the ring, her world upended by Jill Berg’s merciless decision. But she wasn’t alone for long—entering the frame with purposeful strides were Dawn McGill, Tammie Hardy, and Savannah Smith, the formidable trio that formed The Queens of Desire. They encircled Tori with a protective stance that spoke volumes, their unity offering a silent but potent counterargument to her dismissal.

“Look at this, Thunderbolt,” ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall chimed in, his voice crackling with excitement. “Tori’s got an army behind her. She’d fit right in with the Queens of Desire.”

“More Tori is more like a princess among queens, Rick,” Thunderbolt mused, watching as the faction helped Victoria up, her vulnerability juxtaposed with their strength.

“Does it really matter?” Hall countered, his query hanging in the air as the scene faded, giving way to the now familiar backstage area where Kellie Burkowski stood.

Kellie Burkowski Interviews No Quarter
Kellie faced the camera, flanked by Bracken Krueger and Daryn Thompson, collectively known as No Quarter. The tension was palpable; the air thick with anticipation. “Bracken, Daryn, tonight you face The Stevens Dynasty. What’s going through your minds?”

“Enough is enough,” Krueger growled, his gaze unwavering. “We’ve put The SEC in their place, and now it’s time to finish what we started.”

Daryn Thompson stepped forward, the Texas twang in her voice sharpened by determination. “No Quarter already righted the wrong against The SEC,” she declared, her words cutting through the air like a hot knife. “Tonight, we end this feud with The Stevens Dynasty once and for all.”

“Tonight, no quarter will be given,” Krueger added, nodding in agreement with his partner, the intensity in his eyes reflecting the promise of an unforgiving battle ahead.

With those final words, Kellie gave a succinct nod, understanding the gravity of the statement. No further questions needed; the scene said it all. Back to the ring, the story would unfold where words left off—through the sheer force of will and the relentless pursuit of vindication. The stage was set, the players ready, and the old-school echo of professional wrestling’s heyday reverberated through the arena as the show prepared to continue its gritty ballet of conflict and conquest.

Thunderbolt’s steady voice echoed through the arena, “Let’s send it down to Heather Cooper in the ring for the introductions.”

The lights dimmed and a spotlight illuminated the entrance ramp as Heather Cooper, with her sultry presence, stepped into the center of the squared circle. The opening riff of “Kicking and Screaming” by Blues Saracino ripped through the speakers. Heather raised her microphone, her voice cutting through the electric atmosphere.

“Making their way to the ring at this time, weighing in at a combined weight of 495 pounds, the ruthless brawlers, Bracken Krueger and Daryn Thompson… No Quarter!”

The crowd erupted as Krueger and Thompson stormed down the aisle, their faces etched with fierce determination. They slid under the bottom rope, eyes locked on the prize, ready to unleash an unforgiving onslaught.

As No Quarter claimed their corner, the jumbotron came alive with the bold letters: “STEVENS DYNASTY” emblazoned over a backdrop of a proud Texas flag. As “Ghost Riders in the Sky” by The Outlaws filled the air, Heather’s rich tone resonated once more.

“And their opponents, hailing from the great state of Texas, accompanied by Cary Stevens, they are the reigning and defending MVW Tag Team Champions, at a total combined weight of 520 pounds, Bo and George Stevens… The Stevens Dynasty!”

Bo and George, draped in their regal gold title belts, marched to the ring with Cary proudly displaying the hardware. Their swagger was unmistakable, their lineage of dominance clear. The crowd’s reaction was mixed—jeers and cheers clashing like thunder.

Ron Martin, the referee, stood by, his task to maintain order in what promised to be a chaotic showdown.

Post-match, chaos reigned supreme.

Cary Stevens, red-faced and irate, berated Ron Martin, gesticulating wildly, protesting the disqualification that had just been called.

“Daryn Thompson is motionless in the ring thanks to a foreign object wielded by George Stevens,” Hall observed excitedly.  “Bracken Krueger is fighting valiantly against a two on one-“

“Make that FOUR on one.  Here come Scott and Ricky Stevens!” Thunderbolt exclaimed as the reinforcements charged. A four-on-one mugging ensued, the air thick with jeers and boos.

“NO QUARTER WINS BY DISQUALIFICATION AT 3:22!” Heather Cooper announced, her words barely audible over the cacophony of the crowd. But she continued, steadfast, “However, titles cannot change hands via disqualification. Therefore, STILL your MVW Tag Team Champions… The Stevens Dynasty!”

MVW Security swarmed the scene, desperately trying to pry apart the melee. Krueger, even in his beleaguered state, showed the heart of a lion, refusing to go down without a fight.

The Stevens Dynasty, though they retained their titles, had their pride stung by the disqualification. Security’s grip tightened, and slowly, painstakingly, order was restored amidst the turmoil.

“Let’s send it to Kellie Burkowski who’s with the MVW champion,” Thunderbolt said.

Kellie Burkowski Interviews MVW Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson
Backstage, Kellie Burkowski stood by with the man of the hour, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, and his cohorts from the Alabama Gang (R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry).

“Bill Dickinson,” Kellie began, her voice steady despite the charged environment, “tonight you defend your title against Luke Woods of the SEC. Your thoughts?”

The champion, a grizzled titan with eyes like flint, cracked a half-smile that spoke volumes of his assurance. “Kellie, I’ve been down this road before. Woods ain’t nothing I haven’t seen or beat. This belt,” he patted the championship gold resting on his shoulder, “it’s staying right where it belongs.”

R.G. Jenkins, a tower of support next to Dickinson, chimed in with a nod. “Bill’s the toughest son of a bitch in MVW. Ain’t no doubt he’s walking out still champ.”

Off to the side, Mark Hendry seemed distant, lost in thought, but his presence alone added a silent strength to their united front.

“Luke Woods is a tough kid, sure,” Dickinson continued, leaning in closer, a glimmer of intensity in his gaze. “But I’ve been the backbone of this company. I’ve weathered every storm thrown my way, and tonight ain’t gonna be no different. I’ll get the job done, again.”

As confidence radiated from the champion, Thunderbolt Smith’s familiar voice broke into the scene. “Thank you, Kellie. Folks, we’re heading into our last commercial break. When we return, it’s main event time. The MVW Title is on the line. Stay with us for what promises to be a match of epic proportions!”

The camera lingered for a moment longer on Dickinson, the image of a battle-hardened warrior ready to defend his territory, before fading into the break.

Back from the break, the pulsating energy of the crowd filled the air as the bright lights of the arena shone down on the squared circle. It was main event time, and anticipation crackled like electricity.

“Fans, we have been witness to Bill Dickinson’s incredible 603-day title reign,” Thunderbolt Smith said with his characteristic even-keeled voice, which carried a hint of excitement tonight. “But Luke Woods has been knocking on the door of destiny for months now. Could this be the night he finally breaks through?”

“Or will ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson continue to be the immovable object that he’s been since claiming that title?” added ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, barely containing his own enthusiasm. “One thing’s for sure, Thunderbolt, it’s gonna be a slobberknocker!”

Without missing a beat, Thunderbolt sent it ringside to Heather Cooper, who stood confidently in the center of the ring, microphone in hand.

MAIN EVENT-MEN’S TITLE: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson © vs. #1 Luke Woods
Her sultry voice echoed through the arena, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your main event of the evening, and it is for…” She paused dramatically, allowing the audience to fill the gap with a resounding “ONE FALL!”

As boos cascaded down from the stands, Heather introduced the challenger with a tone that cut through the noise, “Accompanied by ‘The Sports Entertainment Genius’ Triple R and the ‘Mouthpiece of the SEC’ Phil Finebaum, weighing in at 200 pounds, the challenger, Luke Woods!”

Luke Woods strode confidently down the ramp, flanked by the despised Triple R and Phil Finebaum. The trio oozed arrogance, brushing off the jeers as if they were accolades, their eyes fixed on the prize that awaited inside the ropes.

Heather then turned her attention to the entrance ramp once more, “And his opponent,” she announced, “accompanied by Sunny O’Callahan, weighing in at 330 pounds, he is the reigning and defending MVW champion… ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson!”

“Unapologetically Country as Hell” blasted through the speakers as Dickinson appeared, wearing the championship belt with pride. The fans erupted into cheers, showing their support for the hard-nosed champion. Alongside Sunny O’Callahan, who matched his stride with unwavering loyalty, Dickinson tipped his hat to the crowd, basking in the adulation. He climbed into the ring with the confidence of a man who owned it, ready to defend his legacy.

“Davey Keels will be the referee for this high-stakes title match,” Thunderbolt noted, as the camera focused on Keels checking the wrestlers before calling for the bell.

And with that, the scene was set: a ring surrounded by fervent fans, a determined challenger eyeing his moment of glory, and a champion standing tall, unyielding. The roar of the crowd swelled; the main event was about to begin.

“NEW CHAMPION!” Thunderbolt Smith’s voice thundered through the arena, a mixture of shock and excitement permeating every syllable. The Terre Haute crowd sat in stunned silence for a moment, grappling with the reality of what they had just witnessed. Then, as if a switch had been flipped, they began to clap—slowly at first, then growing louder—a respectful acknowledgment of the monumental upset.

Luke Woods, standing in the center of the ring, his chest heaving with exertion and elation, had done the unthinkable. He’d toppled the titan of MVW, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, snatching away the title that had become almost synonymous with the man himself after a staggering 603-day reign.

The celebration was instantaneous and chaotic. ‘The Sports Entertainment Genius’ Triple R and the ‘Mouthpiece of the SEC’ Phil Finebaum hit the ring with a fervor, their suits a stark contrast to the sweat-soaked gear of the new champion. They enveloped Woods in a sea of backslaps and cheers, hoisting him onto their shoulders like a conquering hero, basking in the reflected glory of his hard-fought victory.

In the corner, the fallen champion, Bill Dickinson, sat against the turnbuckle, the weight of defeat pressing down on his broad shoulders. Sunny O’Callahan, ever the loyal compatriot, knelt beside him, whispering words of comfort. Her hand rested gently on his back, a silent promise that this was not the end, but merely another chapter in the storied saga of ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson.

Slowly, with the dignity of a true sportsman, Dickinson rose to his feet. His gaze met Woods’, and for a brief moment, time seemed to stand still—a passing of the torch between warriors. Then, raising his hands, Dickinson began to clap, leading the chorus of applause that now filled the arena. It was a salute of respect, acknowledging the better man of the night.

Sunny linked her arm with Dickinson’s as they made their way up the ramp, leaving behind the hallowed ground where battles were waged and legends were forged. The Terre Haute fans, recognizing the end of an era, stood as one, delivering a standing ovation that shook the rafters—a symphony of appreciation for the man who had carried their banner with such pride and resilience.

The final image of the night belonged to Luke Woods, alone now in the spotlight’s embrace, the MVW title clasped tightly in his grasp. He raised it high above his head, a beacon to all those who dared dream, as the air filled with the sweet sounds of victory. His eyes shone with the fire of ambition realized, the knowledge that tonight, history had been written by his hand.

“From challenger to champion,” Thunderbolt Smith intoned, capturing the essence of the moment for those watching at home, “Luke Woods now stands atop the mountain in MVW.”

And as the show sign-off rolled, the camera lingered on Woods, the new MVW Champion, his figure etched in the annals of wrestling lore, the roar of the crowd his enduring soundtrack.
