Ring Announcer: Heather Cooper


Cue the pyro

The deafening roar of 6,500 wrestling fans filled the Indiana Farmers Coliseum as Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall stood in the center of the ring, their faces lit up with excitement. The electrifying energy in the air was unmistakable, and the anticipation for the night’s action reached fever pitch.

“Welcome everyone to the Heartland Pay-Per-View show, live from a sold-out Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis, Indiana!” Thunderbolt boomed into the microphone. “Tonight, we have six title matches and a couple of showcase matches that you won’t want to miss!”

Rick, his face flush with enthusiasm, chimed in. “I’m telling y’all, this is going to be one hell of a show! I can feel it in my bones! There’s gonna be some serious fireworks tonight!” The crowd erupted into cheers once again, their enthusiasm infectious.

“Let’s run down tonight’s card,” Thunderbolt said.

MVW Majority Owner Ray McAvay
Thunderbolt continued, “Now, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the majority owner of MVW, Ray McAvay!” As Ray walked out onto the stage, the thunderous applause grew even louder, shaking the very foundations of the coliseum. Ray entered the ring, basking in the adulation of the wrestling faithful.

MVW Majority Owner Ray McAvay

“Thank you, thank you!” Ray shouted, trying to be heard over the roaring crowd. “Welcome to Heartland, everybody! We’ve got a hell of a night ahead of us!” He proceeded to lay out the plans for the evening, detailing the Carmondy Cup competitions and the two showcase matches. The audience hung on his every word, their excitement building with each announcement.

“Wait a minute!” Thunderbolt suddenly exclaimed, cutting into Ray’s speech. “I know this music and I know who it is!” His eyes widened in surprise as a funky beat mixed with spooky music began to fill the arena.

“IT’S THE GOATBUSTERS!” Rick shouted, unable to contain his excitement. The crowd roared in approval as Peter Jenkman, Ray Scantz, and their manager Ergon appeared on stage, dressed in their signature Goatbusters attire.

The Goatbusters: Peter Jenkman, Ray Scantz, and Ergon

The energy in the arena had reached a fever pitch. The fans rose up and sang along to the Goatbuster’s entrance song…

If there’s something grazing
In your neighborhood
Who you gonna call
If you see a herd
And it don’t look good
Who you gonna call

Jenkman, Scantz, and Ergon start down the ramp toward the ring.

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I ain’t afraid of no Goat

If you’re seeing horns
Running through your yard
Who can you call
If you have a goat
Sleeping in your bed
Oh, who you gonna call

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I ain’t afraid of no Goat

Who you gonna call
If you’re all alone
Pick up the phone
And call

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I hear it likes the girls
I ain’t afraid of no Goat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Who you gonna call
If you’ve had a dose
Of a freaky Goat
Maybe you’d better call

Let me tell you something
Bustin’ makes me feel good

I ain’t afraid of no Goat
I ain’t afraid of no Goat

Don’t get caught alone, oh no
When it comes through your door
Unless you just want some more
I think you better call

Who you gonna call
Who you gonna call
Ah, I think you better call

“AND THEIR OPPONENTS!” Heather said.

“IT’S THE ALABAMA GANG!” Thunderbolt shouted out.

“What a devastating defeat they suffered against No Quarter Tuesday night,” Rick Hall sighed heavily. “It wouldn’t be wise to take on The Alabama Gang in this fragile state.”

Thunderbolt agreed with a gruff grunt. “We’ll see if R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry have the grit and determination to bounce back after last night’s loss.

WINNER: The Alabama Gang at 4:06

“Mark Hendry ends this match in emphatic fashion, and the Alabama Gang have pulled off a convincing win over their rivals The Goatbusters tonight,” Thunderbolt roared into the microphone as the crowd cheered ecstatically.

Rick Hall added, “The Alabama Gang looked downright angry since their loss to No Quarter on Tuesday night, and they took their frustrations out on The Goatbusters. You could see it in their eyes every time they hit them!”

“They sure did, Rick,” Thunderbolt continued, watching Jenkins, Hendry, and Sunny leave the ring. “But one match down and we still have a long night ahead of us yet!” Thunderous applause filled the arena as anticipation for the next big fight grew.  “We have two Heartland title matches coming up for you next. Rick, would you explain to the fans what exactly is the Heartland Division.”

“Thunderbolt, the Men’s and Women’s Heartland Divisions are basically MVW’s ‘house show titles,’ Hall explained.  “The matches take place at the house shows.  Title matches take place at the house shows.  The only time you will see a Heartland title match on TV is when we have a supershow or pay-per-view show.”

“The Women’s Heartland title match is first,” Thunderbolt stated. “Amberly Stanton just defeated ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin for the title.  Her opponent Tammie Hardy defeated Tess a couple weeks later to earn this title shot at Heartland.”

“Stanton is the leader of a new crop of women wrestlers coming out of Joe Bergman’s Barn,” Rick Hall explained.  “That also includes Tammie Hardy.  As for Tammie, she’s has caught fire winning four consecutive Heartland Division matches including defeating the former Women’s Heartland champion ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin and that’s why she’s earned this title shot at Heartland.”


“And Amberley Stanton retains!” announced Thunderbolt as Corrina Romanov presented Stanton with the Women’s Heartland title belt.

“Good match.  I thought Tammie looked strong early on,” Hall said. “Stanton came back and the Leg Lock Suplex Hold wins it for her.”

“So Amberley Stanton remains the MVW Women’s Heartland champion.  We’re going to get a look at our Men’s Heartland champion in a moment,” Thunderbolt said.  “Luke Woods has been a dominant Men’s Heartland champion and many think he’s ready to move up to the main division.”

“That’s right, Thunderbolt,” chimed in Hall. “There’s more than a few people who think Luke Woods has the goods to become a future Men’s champion… especially ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann who’s made it clear he’s looking elsewhere after the repeated failures of the Kardoucheian Empire.”

Thunderbolt changed the subject to Woods’s opponent tonight. “Absolute Zero on the other hand, is 45 years old and still able to perform at a high level in the ring.”

“Absolute Zero will have his work cut out for him tonight,” Hall predicted.  “But what he has been able to do is remarkable. I think Absolute Zero will give Woods a good match. We’ll see what happens.”

“It’s clear Luke Woods has his eyes set higher up the ladder,” Hall detailed.  “Hence, this is why he is going to challenge Cletus T. Johnson… the #4 ranked contender in the Men’s Division… for his spot in a promotion/relegation match.  As for Absolute Zero, he has been red hot of late.  Like Tammie Hardy, Absolute Zero has risen up from the depths of the rankings and knocked off Ken Kardoucheian to gain a Men’s Heartland Title shot at Heartland.”

“Luke Woods the winner,” Thunderbolt exclaimed.  “And he remains the Men’s Heartland champion.”

“Absolute Zero made him work,” Hall commented, reflecting on the match. “Luke Woods did not have an easy go of it.  But again, Woods showed his quality again today and overcame the challenge that Absolute Zero brought to him.  Good match.  Good win for Luke Woods.”

“This match is a reward for both teams,” Rick Hall declared.  “On Tuesday night, Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald tripped up the #1 Women’s Tag Team contenders The Working Girls while LATX shocked Women’s Tag Team Champions The Hanson Sisters in their match.  Yes, both wins were count-outs.  Ray McAvay appreciated the effort in matches that both teams could have just slept walked through and rewarded them with a match at the Heartland Pay-Per-View.”

WINNER: Laney Harrison and McLean Oswald at 14:50

“Laney Harrison’s Northern Lights Bomb to Racquel Ramirez is the decider and Harrison and McLean Oswald are the winners of this match,” Thunderbolt Smith reported.

“Ray McAvay gave both teams a showcase match at Heartland and I thought they delivered,” added Rick Hall.

PRIME Wrestling’s Adam Ellis walked confidently towards ringside for his match with Buckshot Henderson. Adam was accompanied by his wife Ginny Van Lea who clung to his arm, her eyes gazing lovingly at her husband.

Adam Ellis and Ginny Van Lear

All seemed normal as the couple rounded a corner.

“Hey Adam!”

Adam and Ginny stopeed when Tori appeared in front of the couple.

Victoria McGill

“Er… hi Tori,” Adam said, stumbling all over his words.

Ginny glared at the woman who had once been linked romantically with Adam.

“I just wanted to wish you good luck tonight,” Victoria said.

Adam hesitated to respond for a moment and eyed the statuesque six-two blonde warily.

“So how were you feeling about tonight?” she asked.

Adam shrugged. “I’m ready.”

“Great to hear.” Tori winked at Adam. “Really good to hear.

“Thanks Tori…” Just as Adam turned to leave…


…John Sektor slammed into him with the force of a freight train.


Sektor sent Ellis stumbling backward. He grabbed Ellis by the arm and whipped him into the wall.

Ginny’s scream pierced the air and she started towards Victoria.

Tori cackled in delight. Ginny balled her hands up and got ready for a spinning heel kick. But in one swift motion, Tori swept Ginny off her feet and brutally slammed her face-first into the unforgiving floor with a Gutwrench Facebuster. Ginny was knocked out cold.

Sektor unleashed a barrage of vicious kicks on Ellis, each one more powerful than the last. He then locked in his signature move—the Sektor Stretch— hyperextending Adam’s neck and applying massive pressure to his lower back.

Despite Ellis’ screams of agony, Sektor twisted his body unnaturally, grinning maliciously as he observed his former apprentice struggle in the agonizing hold.

Tori’s eyes suddenly widened. “JOHN!”

Sektor looked up. His eyes also widened and he saw the fury etched in the face of ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson as he charged down the hallway towards him. Dickinson was flanked by R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry with Sunny O’Callahan bringing up the rear.

Sektor released the hold immediately and tore off running down the hall, narrowly escaping the wrath of the Alabama Gang.

Victoria McGill on the other hand… wasn’t so lucky.  Surrounded by Jenkins, Hendry, and Sunny and staring face-to-face into the eyes of the 330 Pound Southern Brawler, she raised her hands in the air.

Victoria said, “Guys… Bill wait… let’s not do something you’ll regret- HEY!”

The enraged champion seized McGill by the hair and she shrieked. Then Dickinson hoisted her into position for his Southern Fried Powerbomb and with a deafening roar took two steps forward and slammed Tori onto the unforgiving floor.

Dickinson gave Tori the double bird and bounded over her sprawled out, motionless body to pursue Sektor.

Jenkins, Hendry, and Sunny attended to Ginny.

MVW Security came upon the scene seconds later, taking in the destruction with startled eyes and shock. MVW majority owner Ray McAvay also entered the scene, his face a mixture of anger and concern. Jill Berg, CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises, stormed up to him, her fury barely contained.

CEO Jill Berg Enterprises

“Ray! This is unacceptable!” she raged, jabbing a finger towards the unconscious Victoria McGill. “Dickinson just took out my wrestler! I demand you postpone the title match!”

McAvay’s expression hardened, and he shook his head firmly. “No, Jill. Tori brought this on herself, and she’ll have to deal with the consequences. The match goes ahead as planned.”

Berg’s face contorted with rage, but seeing that McAvay wouldn’t budge, she stomped away, cursing under her breath.

As security tended to the injured wrestlers, the camera cut back to the broadcast booth where Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall sat, both wearing expressions of shock and concern after witnessing the brutal backstage chaos. As they composed themselves, Thunderbolt leaned into his microphone to address the viewers at home.

“Ladies and gentlemen, if you’re just joining us, we’ve had a shocking series of events take place backstage,” he began, his voice reflecting the gravity of the situation. “Rick, it’s been a rough few weeks for Jill Berg Enterprises, hasn’t it?”

“Absolutely, Thunderbolt,” Hall agreed, shaking his head in disbelief. “If I’m reading Ray McAvay correctly, he’s saying Victoria McGill just forfeited her title opportunity against Jennifer Colton tonight because of her involvement in what just happened.”

“That’s what I thought as well,” Thunderbolt agreed.

“I’ve never seen anything quite like this before. The tension backstage has reached a boiling point, and it looks like we’ll be feeling the effects of tonight’s confrontation for some time.”

Thunderbolt nodded solemnly, then continued with an update on the injured wrestlers. “For those of you concerned about the condition of Adam Ellis, Ginny Van Lear, and Victoria McGill, here’s what we know so far. John Sektor attacked Adam Ellis backstage tonight and as a result, Ellis will not be wrestling tonight.”

“Such a shame, Thunderbolt,” Hall interjected.

“Indeed, it is, Rick. And as for Ginny Van Lear, she was stretchered out and taken to a nearby hospital after that vicious Gutwrench Facebuster from Victoria McGill. We can only hope for a speedy recovery for her.”

“Let’s not forget about Tori,” Hall added, referring to Victoria McGill. “She took one hell of a Southern Fried Powerbomb from Bill Dickinson. She too was taken to the hospital for treatment.”

“Right you are, Rick. So there you have it, folks,” Thunderbolt concluded, his face etched with concern. “Three wrestlers injured. We’ll keep you updated as we receive more information, but for now, our thoughts are with those involved in this devastating altercation.”

“Let’s just hope things don’t escalate any further, Thunderbolt,” Hall chimed in, his eyes darting around the arena as if expecting more chaos at any moment. “We’ve already seen enough for one night.”

A visibly pissed off Ray McAvay appeared on the stage.

“Well,” Thunderbolt said.  “We’re going to see how Ray McAvay decides to handle this.

Ray McAvay Has a Plan B
“Obviously, Adam Ellis wouldn’t be able to wrestle that night,” McAvay explained.  “But don’t worry.  There’s always a Plan B.  In fact, I have it on good authority that a very good Plan B will be coming out instead…”

Over the loudspeaker, an acoustic guitar, a slide guitar, and a meaty rhythm guitar could be heard.

The late Jimmy Buffett’s voice then came out…

Work, work, work
A big pile of it and the boss is a jerk
I just want to disappear
Wishin’ I was somewhere other than here

The arena suddenly plunged into darkness and anticipation filled the air. Suddenly, a spotlight shone on the ramp and a group of former Arizona State sorority sisters emerged, looking absolutely stunning in their gorgeous Hawaiian flowery dresses, leis, and headgear. And let’s not forget the pirate patches and stuffed toy parrots on their shoulders! They danced to the music with wild abandon, sipping on delicious boat drinks of all kinds, and snapping selfies left and right with their cell phones. Pure, unadulterated joy filled the room as everyone joined in on the fun!

Livin’ for the weekend
Jumpin’ off the deep end
With just enough money to buy
A license to chill- and I believe I will

Dawn McGill emerged from the crowd wearing a vibrant Hawaiian print bikini top paired with a flowing skirt and sandals. She had adorned herself with a beautiful lei and held a refreshing Mai Tai drink in her hand. At first, she rolled her eyes at the antics of the ex-ASU sorority sisters, but soon found herself swept up in their energy and joined them in dancing on the stage with carefree abandon.

Let the rat race run, roll around in the sun until
Trouble turns funny, songs get sung
A little bit of money, the night’s still young
Leave me alone, I’ve got a license…

License to chill.

As soon as the crowd saw the picture of Jimmy Buffett being carried out, they erupted into cheers and applause. It seemed like everyone in the arena was on their feet, shouting and clapping with excitement. But then, something even more unexpected happened. A giant of a man, towering over everyone else in the room, walked out onto the stage. He was dressed in a brown robe that covered his wrestling gear, and he looked absolutely massive. The crowd fell silent for a moment, almost unsure of what to make of this new arrival. But then, as they realized who it was, they began to cheer even louder. It was clear that this was going to be a night to remember.

Heather Cooper: Ladies and gentlemen.  From sunny Southern California.  The reason the Earth doesn‘t float away in the vastness of space…the reason it’s eighty degrees outside and not minus four hundred and fifty-nine point six seven…and the reason Brian Wilson AND… Jimmy Buffett…

Cue crowd pop for Jimmy.

Heather Cooper: wrote all those great songs…ladies and gentlemen… the Sunshine God…… RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

McGill led the sorority sisters and the rest of the procession down to the ring steps.  Rah revels in the acclamation from the crowd.

“Real quick, Buckshot Henderson also got a reward for his hard work in steadily moving up the rankings,” Hall said.  “He was expecting Adam Ellis. But with what happened earlier tonight, he’s going to have a much different challenge in Rah.”

“A challenge he hadn’t known about and able to prepare for,” chimed in Thunderbolt.  “We’ll find out just what he can do against the Sunshine God.”

WINNER: Rah at 5:06

“Rah gets the win,” Thunderbolt said as Dawn McGill stood by her husband’s side, a proud smile on her face as she watched the crowd celebrate Rah’s victory.

“Rah looked pretty good for someone who hasn’t wrestled regularly in a couple of years,” added Hall.

“Hopefully we will have some idea of the injuries to Victoria McGill soon,” Thunderbolt continued.

“I don’t think Tori’s going to make the match, Thunderbolt,” Hall said.  “That was a nasty-looking Southern Fried Powerbomb she took from ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson.”

“Ray did a good job of having a Plan B for the Ellis-Henderson match,” Thunderbolt replied. “As for the Colton match, I’m not sure what’s going to happen there.”

“Thunderbolt, I’m sure we’ll see Jennifer Colton in the ring tonight,” Hall argued.  “Now, against who, I have no idea.”

Hall nodded in agreement, but his eyes were still fixed on the ring where Tori had fallen. He knew that wrestling was a dangerous sport, but it was moments like these that reminded him just how much these athletes put on the line every time they stepped into the ring.

“All right folks, it’s time for the big matches,” Thunderbolt said, the excitement ramping back up.  “It’s time for the first of the four big title matches on the show.  Let’s go to Heather Cooper in the ring.”

“Thunderbolt, The Hanson Sisters have been champions since February after they won the belts from Jill Berg Enterprises,” Rick Hall explained. “Their opponents, The Working Girls, are themselves former tag team champions and they’ve really picked up their game over the past few months.”

“Caroline Lewis and Leah Iris definitely have rededicated themselves and the recent results reflect that,” added Thunderbolt.

“Can The Working Girls end The Hanson’s seven-month stranglehold on the Women’s Tag Team Titles?” Hall rhetorically asked. “We’re going to find out.”


“What a match!” gushed Thunderbolt Hall.  “The Hansons do it again.”

Referee Bailey Jenkins hands Andrea and Melissa Hanson their title belts and they raise them into the air.

“These ladies grind out another tough result and their title reign continues,” Hall said.  “Wow.”

“Give Caroline Lewis and Leah Iris credit,” Thunderbolt said.  “They gave the Hansons fits.  They fought like hell.  But again, The Hansons find a way to get a result.”

Hall commented, “Andrea Hanson gets the pinfall after the High Stick and they are still the MVW Women’s Tag Team Champions.”

“All right.  One down,” Thunderbolt said. “We’ve got another barn burner of a match coming up next.  Let’s go to Heather Cooper in the ring.”

“Thunderbolt, Bo and George Stevens put an end to The Alabama Gang’s second title run over two weeks ago and they are two-time MVW Men’s Tag Team champions. Tonight they face a No Quarter team on Sunday who’ve simply bulldozed through the division,” Hall observed.

“It shouldn’t be that surprising,” Thunderbolt added.  “Both Bracken Krueger and Daryn Thompson raced up the rankings when they joined MVW as singles wrestlers.  Now teaming up again as No Quarter, Krueger and Thompson have done the same thing and run roughshod over some pretty good tag teams in the division.”

“Can they make the Stevens Dynasty’s second title run a short one?” Hall rhetorically asked.  “Or will Bo and George Stevens be the brick wall that stops No Quarter’s run.”

“We’re going to find out right now.”

WINNER: No Quarter via count-out at 13:39- The Stevens Dynasty retain the title.

“Did you see that punch,” Rick Hall exclaimed, his voice cracking with excitement. The crowd roared in agreement as they too were stunned at how easily Daryn Thompson sent George Stevens up and over the top rope. Sweat flew through the air like a fine mist, highlighting the raw power behind Thompson’s hit.

“Whoa. That’s a four hundred-plus pound man she just put over the ropes.” Hall couldn’t help but marvel at the display of strength. Thompson’s face was flushed with exertion, her eyes burning with determination. She knew she had to make an impact tonight, and she did it with her fists.

Krueger joined Thompson in the ring, their arms raised in triumph as they celebrated their hard-fought victory. The duo reveled in the cheers and adulation, feeding off the energy of the crowd. It was moments like these that reminded them why they persevered in this brutal sport.

But soon, the atmosphere shifted. As the belts were reluctantly handed back to Bo and George Stevens, the mood became tense. Cary Stevens, the manager of the Stevens Dynasty, snarled at referee Ron Martin, clearly unhappy with the outcome. His eyes were cold, calculating, and he barked orders at his team. With a hasty exit from the ring, Bo and Cary helped George up and the Stevens Dynasty left under a cloud of frustration and bitterness.

“That was amazing,” Thunderbolt replied, his voice steady despite the thrilling match they had just witnessed. He’d seen countless matches over the years, but the sight of Thompson taking down George Stevens still managed to leave him awestruck.

“But unfortunately, the title does not change hands on a count-out.” Thunderbolt knew the rules all too well, and while No Quarter had proven themselves formidable opponents, they hadn’t quite done enough to dethrone the reigning champions.

“The Stevens Dynasty dodged a HUGE bullet tonight,” Hall said, unable to mask the disappointment in his voice. He knew how close No Quarter had come to victory, and the thought of what could have been weighed heavily on him.

“Big time,” Thunderbolt concurred, mirroring Hall’s sentiments.

Ray McAvay
The arena lights shifted, casting a dramatic spotlight on the stage as MVW majority owner Ray McAvay emerged from the darkness. Thunderbolt and Hall watched intently, sensing something big was about to go down.

“Attention, everyone,” McAvay announced, his voice authoritative and commanding respect. “As you have probably figured out, Victoria McGill is unable to wrestle tonight.”

The crowd murmured, disappointment evident in their reactions.

“Due to her actions earlier in the show, I’ve decided not to reschedule the title match,” McAvay continued, earning a mix of cheers and boos from the passionate fans. His no-nonsense approach often came with controversy, but he always stood by his decisions.

“However,” he added, pausing for effect, “I did say there was a Plan B.” A knowing smile crept onto McAvay’s face as he glanced around the arena, feeling the anticipation building.

Suddenly, the sound of a tractor firing up filled the air, followed by lively banjo playing echoing through the sound system. The crowd erupted in excitement, recognizing the familiar tune, and so did the commentators.

“NO WAY!” Thunderbolt shouted into the microphone, his usual composure briefly replaced by genuine shock. “She’s back?”

“Looks like it!” Hall added, grinning widely as he shared in the collective surprise. The energy in the room seemed to intensify, everyone eager to see who would emerge from behind the curtain.

“Kirsten Canfield has returned to Missouri Valley Wrestling!” exclaimed Thunderbolt.  “The Wichita Wonder is back!”

“Kirsten Canfield is a two-time Women’s Heartland champion,” Hall explained.  “She left MVW to go to grad school.  We don’t know if this is a one-night-only thing or rather Kristen is coming back.”

“Kudos to Jennifer Colton for accepting the match,” Thunderbolt added.  “She’s never wrestled Kristen before so she’s going into this match cold.”

WINNER: Jennifer Colton at 11:58

The sweat glistened on Colton and Canfield’s foreheads as the two wrestlers, exhausted from their intense match, shook hands in the middle of the ring. The crowd roared with appreciation for the display they had just witnessed.

“That was a good match,” Hall exclaimed, his voice filled with excitement. “It’s hard to come in cold like Kristen Canfield did. It’s hard to wrestle someone you weren’t prepared to wrestle either.”

“Absolutely,” Thunderbolt chimed in. “And Kirsten is not the easiest person to wrestle. She gave Colton a good run there.”

“She did,” agreed Hall, nodding emphatically.

As the applause continued to echo throughout the arena, Thunderbolt received a signal from the producer. “We’ve got some breaking news here, folks,” he announced. “Let’s send it back to Kellie Burkowski backstage for the details.”

Another Backstage Incident
The camera cut to a tense scene backstage where Kellie Burkowski stood, microphone in hand, her blonde hair slightly disheveled from the chaos that had just unfolded. “Thanks, Thunderbolt,” she said, trying to maintain her composure. “I have just witnessed a heated exchange between ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and Bo Stevens of the Stevens Dynasty.”

“Apparently, Dickinson made a comment about the Stevens Dynasty ‘shitting the bed’ in their match against No Quarter,” Kellie continued, her eyes wide with surprise. “Bo didn’t take kindly to it, and a brief shoving match ensued before MVW Security intervened.”

Thunderbolt frowned at the update. “It’s been a rough night around here,” he commented, shaking his head. “With the John Sektor attack on Adam Ellis earlier, tensions are clearly high.”

Backstage, Bo Stevens glared at Dickinson, his face red with anger. Cary Stevens held his son back, trying to prevent the situation from escalating further. Dickinson smirked, knowing he had struck a nerve with his comments. The hostility between the wrestlers was clear, and it was evident that this was far from over.

“Stay tuned, folks,” Thunderbolt warned as the camera panned back to him and Hall at the broadcast table. “With emotions running high and rivalries deepening, there’s no telling what might happen next here on MVW.”

“Let’s head backstage now for the drawing of round two of the Carmondy Cup,” Thunderbolt announced, his voice charged with excitement. The camera cut to Dawn McGill.

“Thanks, Thunderbolt,” Dawn replied, her eyes sparkling with anticipation. “I’m here to draw the matches for the next round of the Carmondy Cup.”

Dawn reached into the first hat, her fingers grazed the slips of paper like a master artist selecting just the right brushstroke and pulling out the names…

“Next up, we have the Angels of Death – Angel Casey and Angel Scott – joining us to draw the first-round matches for the Carmondy Cup Tag Team Tournament,” Thunderbolt informed the viewers as the camera switched locations.

Angel Casey and Angel Scott, the formidable duo known as the Angels of Death and part of the MVW Hall of Fame, approached the table. Their eyes revealed a glimmer of excitement at the prospect of witnessing the fates of their fellow tag teams.

“Let’s get this show on the road,” Angel Scott said with an ominous grin, her voice laced with menace. The wrestlers inched closer, curiosity and anxiety intermingling as they awaited their destiny.

As Angel Casey reached into the hat, her slender fingers pulled out the names for the first-round matches…

MAIN EVENT-MEN’S TITLE: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson © vs. #1 John O’Reilly
Thunderbolt Smith’s voice crackled with anticipation as he leaned into the microphone, his eyes locked on the ring. “Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for tonight’s main event! The challenger, John O’Reilly, takes on our reigning Men’s Champion, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson!” He paused, letting the excitement build among the crowd.

“Long Haul” Rick Hall chimed in, equally animated. “I’ve been looking forward to this match all night, Thunderbolt. You know O’Reilly is going to give it his all, but Dickinson is a force to be reckoned with.”

“Absolutely,” agreed Thunderbolt. “Let’s send it down to our ring announcer, the lovely Heather Cooper, for the official introductions.” The camera panned to Heather, her sultry curves accentuated by a form-fitting dress. She held the microphone confidently, her dark eyes scanning the roaring crowd.

“Thunderbolt, this will be a battle between two men who know each other inside and out.  It was Dickinson who put an end to John O’Reilly’s title run to become the Men’s Champion for the second time over a year ago.  Bill Dickinson has simply dominated the division ever since.  Back in December and the first of the year, O’Reilly and Dickinson had a series of matches that saw the champion retain his belt. O’Reilly fell back in the rankings but after he defeated Ricky Stevens on Tuesday night he has another chance to regain the title.”

“Alright, boys,” Thunderbolt said, getting down to business. “This is it. The moment we’ve been waiting for. Let’s see what these two can do!”

WINNER AND STILL THE MEN’S CHAMPION: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson at 7:41

“Well,” Thunderbolt began.  “Bo Stevens came out and tried to throw a monkey wrench into Bill Dickinson’s title defense.”

“It didn’t work,” Hall said.

“Nope, it did not.  Bill Dickinson retains the title!” Thunderbolt said as referee Davey Keels hands Dickinson the Men’s title belt.

Yet More Backstage Issues
“Wait a minute, folks,” Thunderbolt interjected, his attention shifting. “We have more trouble brewing backstage.”

The camera cut to a chaotic scene: The Alabama Gang’s R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry brawling with Bo and George Stevens. Fists flew, and bodies slammed into walls, and the MVW Security force racing in to put a stop to it.

“This is a fitting finale to what was an intense night of action,” Thunderbolt said excitedly.  “No title changes tonight.  Bad night for Jill Berg Enterprises.  The Stevens Dynasty dodge a huge bullet. Bill Dickinson is still dominating the Men’s Division.

“We got the return of Kirsten Canfield,” added Hall.

“And we got the return of Kristen Canfield.  Alright, everyone,” Thunderbolt said, his voice conveying a mix of satisfaction and concern. “That’s all we have for you tonight.  No Wrestling Night in the Heartland this week.  We will see you on October 3rd.  Stay tuned, and good night!”
