Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland
Tuesday September 5th, 2023
Cedar Falls, IA
Announcers: Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall
Backstage Interviewer: Kellie Burkowski
Ring Announcer: Heather Cooper
MVW… MVW… MVW…
Over the loudspeaker we hear an acoustic guitar, a slide guitar, and a meaty rhythm guitar.
Jimmy Buffett’s voice then comes out over the speakers.
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 lights turn off and a small spotlight illuminates the ramp where a group of former Arizona State sorority sisters come out all dressed up in Hawaiian flowery dresses, Hawaiian leis, and headgear, and some even sport pirate patches in one eye and a stuffed toy parrot on their shoulder. The girls dance to the music with boat drinks of all kinds, having a grand ol’ time taking selfies of themselves with their cell phones.
Livin’ for the weekend
Jumpin’ off the deep end
With just enough money to buy
A license to chill- and I believe I will
Then Dawn McGill comes out wearing an open Hawaiian print shirt covering a multi-colored bikini top underneath, torn jeans shorts, and flip-flops. She’s got a Hawaiian lei on as well and sports a Mai Tai drink in her hand. McGill rolls her eyes at the antics of the ex-ASU sorority sisters but then joins them in dancing on the stage.
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.
The crowd gets on their feet, four large, hulking men carry out a large picture of Jimmy Buffett. Then a six-foot eight inch, two-hundred-and-eighty-pound man dressed in a Hawaiian print shirt and a pair of Bermuda shorts sipping a margarita from a large glass follows from the back.
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 leads the sorority sisters and the rest of the procession down to the ring steps. Rah takes in the acclamation from the crowd and finishes off the margarita in his hand. After he grabs the large picture of Jimmy Buffett, he climbs into the ring.
The lights dim. Rah holds up the picture.
Rah: Rah thanks you very much. And thank you Jimmy for all the great music.
The deafening roar of the crowd inside the sold-out McLeod Center reverberated through the walls as Thunderbolt Smith stood tall in the center of the ring, his eyes scanning the sea of excited faces surrounding him. “Ladies and gentlemen,” he shouted into his microphone, his voice booming over the din, “welcome to Wrestling Night in the Heartland!” The response from the audience was immediate; a cacophony of cheers and applause that made the very floor beneath their feet quiver.
“Tonight, MVW is live from Cedar Falls, Iowa for an exciting night of pro wrestling action!” Thunderbolt continued. He gestured towards ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, standing by his side in the ring, and introduced him to the crowd. Together, they ran down tonight’s show.
“Kicking off the night, we have Jill Berg Enterprises’ ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan and Prisoner #034291 taking on The Working Girls — Caroline Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris — in a Women’s Tag Team #1 Contender’s match!” Thunderbolt announced, the anticipation building higher with every word.
Hall chimed in, his own excitement evident, as he called the match huge for Carrigan and Prisoner #034291. They’ve been under pressure lately from JBE CEO Jill Berg after some recent setbacks, and Berg expects results. “We’ll see how they respond,” he mused aloud, considering the implications.
“Meanwhile,” Hall continued, “Lewis and Iris are veterans in the game, having moved from #4 to #2 in the rankings. They’re looking to earn a shot at the Women’s Tag Team Champions, The Hanson Sisters, in just two weeks.” The crowd’s response to these announcements was a mixture of cheers and boos, passionate opinions on display.
“Moving on to match two,” Thunderbolt picked up the thread, “we have a Women’s Division #1 Contender’s match between Victoria McGill of Jill Berg Enterprises and ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki!” The fans erupted once more, their excitement for the upcoming matches reaching a fever pitch.
“Both of these women know each other real well,” Hall added, his voice filled with anticipation. “McGill won the Women’s title from Yamazaki last June but has always had a tough time with the Shadow Warrior. This could be a really good one as both women want to regain the Women’s title.”
As Thunderbolt and Hall finished running down the events for the evening, they exchanged knowing looks, understanding that tonight would be a night to remember. The tension in the air was palpable, each fan on the edge of their seats, waiting for the first wrestler to enter the ring and kick off what promised to be an unforgettable night of pro wrestling action.
“Alright folks, let’s not forget about our main event tonight!” Thunderbolt exclaimed, his voice booming throughout the sold-out McLeod Center. The crowd roared in anticipation as he continued, “We’ve got a Men’s Title match between our reigning champion, ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson, and Ricky Stevens from the Sports Entertainment Corporation!”
“Big match for Ricky,” Hall chimed in, leaning into the microphone. “He’s really under the gun from the ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann over his inability to bring the Men’s title belt to the SEC.”
As they spoke, the camera panned across the excited faces in the audience, capturing the intensity of their emotions. The atmosphere was electric, and it was clear that this showdown would be one for the ages.
“Bill Dickinson has been the Men’s champion for over a year now and shows no signs of wanting to give up the title anytime soon,” Thunderbolt added, his voice tinged with admiration for the tenacious champion.
“Absolutely, Thunderbolt. Dickinson is relentless and tough as nails. But if there’s anyone who can give him a run for his money, it’s Ricky Stevens,” Hall responded, clearly intrigued by the potential outcome of the match.
As the duo wrapped up their discussion of the main event, Thunderbolt pivoted to one final announcement. “Lastly, ladies and gentlemen, we have some big news! MVW Owner Ray McAvay will also appear on tonight’s show to discuss the upcoming Heartland pay-per-view show and talk about the Carmondy Cup!” The crowd erupted once more, buzzing with excitement over the prospect of hearing from the owner himself.
“Ray McAvay always brings something special to the table,” Hall observed, grinning with anticipation. “I can’t wait to hear what he has to say about the future of MVW and the prestigious Carmondy Cup.”
“Indeed, Rick,” Thunderbolt agreed. “Tonight is shaping up to be an unforgettable night of pro wrestling action, and I’m sure everyone here in Cedar Falls, Iowa, is ready for the show to begin!”
With that closing statement, the scene came to a thrilling end, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats as they eagerly awaited the start of what promised to be a memorable evening of competition, drama, and heart-pounding excitement.
MATCH #1: The Working Girls (Caroline Lewis/’Queen Cool’ Leah Iris) vs. Jill Berg Enterprises (‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan/Prisoner #034291) in a Women’s Tag Team #1 Contender’s Match
Thunderbolt Smith stood up from the broadcast table, his face an epitome of excitement as he gestured towards the ring. “Ladies and gentlemen, we now head to the ring for our next match!”
Inside the ring, Heather Cooper, MVW’s sexy ring announcer, took her place in the center, adjusting her microphone and scanning the audience with anticipation. Her sultry voice echoed through the arena as she began the introductions.
“First, hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, standing at five feet nine inches tall, weighing 125 pounds, please welcome the fabulous ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris!”
‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris
The arena’s speakers burst to life with Donnie Iris’s “Ah Leah” as Leah Iris strutted onto the stage, wearing her signature sunglasses, a smirk on her lips. She raised her hands high, basking in the cheers from the audience as she made her way down the ramp.
“Next,” Heather continued, “from Conway, New Hampshire, standing at five feet eleven inches tall, weighing 135 pounds, she’s the hardest working woman in wrestling, the ‘Former Hooter’s Waitress,’ C.J. Lewis!”
Donna Summer’s “She Works Hard for the Money” filled the air, and C.J. Lewis emerged, clad in her wrestling gear that hinted at her former occupation. She flexed her muscles confidently, acknowledging the crowd with a wink before joining Leah Iris in the ring. The two women clasped hands, ready to take on their opponents.
“Introducing their opponents, first, the Jill Berg Enterprises CEO herself, Jill Berg!”
CEO of Jill Berg Enterprises Jill Berg
Heather’s voice was met with boos as Jill Berg descended the ramp, flanked by her security detail. She sneered at the jeering crowd, her eyes locked on The Working Girls in the ring, plotting their downfall.
“Accompanying her tonight, hailing from Vilbank, Saskatchewan, standing at six feet tall, weighing 145 pounds, the ‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan!”
‘Canadian Cyborg’ Sheline Carrigan
Sheline Carrigan appeared on stage, her stoic face and imposing stature a testament to her ring prowess. She nodded at Jill Berg before proceeding down the ramp.
“Finally, from Des Moines, Iowa, standing at six feet three inches tall, weighing 185 pounds… Prisoner #034291!”
The crowd erupted in a mix of shock and fascination as Prisoner #034291 lumbered onto the stage, her massive frame casting an ominous shadow. She stared down The Working Girls with an intensity that sent shivers down their spines.
“Joining them tonight,” Heather added, “is the ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin!”
Tessa Martin dashed out to join her teammates, carrying a pizza box as a prop and wearing a determined expression. With all combatants in the ring, the tension was palpable.
“Your referee for this match will be Bailey Jenkins!” Thunderbolt announced, sending the camera back to him briefly before focusing on the action in the ring.
Bailey Jenkins, the assigned referee, checked each wrestler for any illegal objects before signaling for the bell. As it rang, The Working Girls and their opponents met in the center of the ring, determined looks etched on their faces, ready to engage in an epic showdown.
The ring bell echoed through the arena, signaling the end of the match. Heather Cooper stepped forward, microphone in hand, her voice carrying over the cheering crowd. “Ladies and gentlemen, your winners of this match… The Working Girls!”
“Queen Cool” Leah Iris and “Former Hooter’s Waitress” C.J. Lewis exchanged proud glances, their sweat-soaked faces beaming as they raised each other’s hands in victory. The crowd roared in approval, their energy infectious.
At ringside, Jill Berg fumed, unable to believe the outcome. Her face contorted in rage, she stomped away from the chaos, her security team trailing behind. In the ring, a dazed Sheline Carrigan and woozy Prisoner #034291 struggled to comprehend their loss.
“Wow,” Thunderbolt said, his tone betraying his surprise. “What an upset! I can’t believe The Working Girls pulled it off!”
“Leah Iris sure did hit that Pittsburgh Plunge on Prisoner #034291 perfectly, huh?” Hall added enthusiastically. “That means they’ll get a shot at the Women’s Tag Team Champions, The Hanson Sisters, in just two weeks!”
“Absolutely right!” Thunderbolt agreed. “This is going to be one for the books.”
As the arena calmed down, Kellie Burkowski entered the ring, microphone in hand. She approached Lewis and Iris, who were still catching their breaths but grinning with satisfaction.
“Congratulations on your win, ladies,” Kellie began. “C.J., tell us how you feel about this victory.”
Lewis wiped her brow, her eyes shining with determination. “You know, Kellie, Leah and I did what we always do. We worked hard, gave it everything we had, and never gave up. That’s what got us here, and that’s what will carry us forward.”
“Leah,” Kellie asked, turning to Iris, “what are your thoughts on this win and working alongside C.J. Lewis?”
“Working with C.J. has been amazing,” Leah replied sincerely, her gaze fixed on her partner. “We push each other to be the best we can be, and that’s what makes us such a strong team. I couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
“Speaking of strong teams,” Kellie continued, “in two weeks you’ll face The Hanson Sisters. What do you think about them?”
“Look,” C.J. interjected, her tone matter-of-fact, “what you see is what you get with the Hansons. They’re tough, sure, but so are we. We won’t back down from a challenge.”
Leah nodded in agreement, adding, “We’ll treat it like any other match. We’ll work hard, give it our all, and never give up. That’s what The Working Girls are all about.”
“Thank you, Leah and C.J.,” Kellie said, smiling at the victorious pair. “Good luck against The Hanson Sisters!”
As the scene faded, The Working Girls stood tall in the ring, their resolve unshakable. Undoubtedly, they were ready for the challenge ahead.
MATCH #2: ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki vs. Victoria McGill (Jill Berg Enterprises) in a Women’s Division #1 Contender’s Match
Thunderbolt’s voice boomed through the arena as the commercial break ended. “Welcome back, folks! We’re diving right into our second match of the night!”
The crowd roared in anticipation, their energy palpable. Heather Cooper, MVW’s sultry ring announcer, stepped into the spotlight, microphone in hand. “Introducing first, from Osaka, Japan, standing at 5’4″ and weighing 125 pounds, ‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki!”
‘The Shadow Warrior’ Shizuko Yamazaki
“Clock Strikes” by One OK Rock blared through the speakers as Yamazaki emerged, garbed in a traditional Japanese battle dress. The intricate design shimmered under the bright lights, catching the audience’s eye. Striking an imposing pose on stage, she exuded confidence. As her eyes locked onto the ring, Yamazaki’s thoughts turned to victory. *I won’t let my country down. I will honor my ancestors with this fight.*
Making her way down to ringside, Yamazaki’s focus never wavered. She could feel the crowd’s energy surging through her veins. This was her moment.
“Next,” Heather continued, “introducing her opponent, representing Jill Berg Enterprises… Victoria McGill!” Jill Berg herself appeared first, flanked by her security detail. The CEO’s smug expression only fueled the growing tension in the room as they walked down the ramp.
“Twisted Ambition” by Samantha Fish played as McGill emerged from backstage, accompanied by ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin.
With a height of 6’2″ and weighing 140 pounds, McGill towered over her competition. She gave a cocky smirk before posing onstage, eliciting jeers from the audience. Her mind raced with thoughts of dominance.
Tessa followed closely behind. They moved toward the ring, where Yamazaki awaited. Thunderbolt’s voice cut through the tension as he announced the referee. “Corrina Romanov will be officiating tonight’s match.”
The arena fell silent as Romanov called for the bell. The sound echoed through the air, signaling the beginning of a battle that would be remembered for years to come.
The final bell rang, signaling the end of a relentless and brutal match between Victoria McGill and Shizuko Yamazaki. The crowd roared as Heather Cooper announced the winner: “Ladies and gentlemen, your winner at 27 minutes and 58 seconds…Victoria McGill!”
McGill lay on her back in the ring, gasping for air, every muscle aching from the intense battle she’d just waged. Victory tasted sweet, but she knew it had come at a cost. Her thoughts swirled with a mix of pride and pain.
“Thunderbolt” Smith was quick to chime in on commentary, his voice filled with excitement. “What a huge win for Victoria McGill! She showed incredible tenacity tonight.”
“Long Haul” Rick Hall added his own observations. “Absolutely, Thunderbolt. It took not one, not two, but three Gutwrench Facebusters to finally finish off Yamazaki. That’s a testament to her resilience.”
Beside McGill, Yamazaki lay dazed and half-conscious, her body battered by the onslaught of blows she’d suffered. Her breath came in ragged gasps, and her mind fogged with disorientation.
“Big win for Tori McGill,” Hall continued, “let’s not forget that this victory means Tori gets her rematch against Women’s Champion Jennifer Colton in just two weeks! Now that’s something to look forward to.”
“Indeed, it is!” Thunderbolt agreed.
At that moment, Jennifer Colton appeared on stage, her championship belt glittering under the arena lights. McGill, still lying on the mat, managed to lift her head and lock eyes with Colton. The intense staredown between them was electrifying, as both women silently communicated their determination to come out on top in their upcoming match.
“See you in two weeks,” McGill whispered hoarsely, fire blazing in her eyes.
“Looking forward to it,” Colton replied coolly, a confident smirk playing at her lips.
As the scene came to a close, the air crackled with anticipation for the epic showdown that lay ahead.
The arena is filled with excitement as the majority owner of Missouri Valley Wrestling, Ray McAvay, steps onto the stage, his wife and West Texas Adult Entertainment legend, Stacee Perry-McAvay, on his arm. The crowd erupts into a deafening standing ovation, acknowledging their presence.
MVW Majority Owner Ray McAvay and Stacee Perry-McAvay
“Ray McAvay isn’t holding back tonight!” Thunderbolt Smith exclaims, referring to McAvay’s recent harsh words for High Octane Wrestling owner Lee Best.
“Standing up to the high school bully, that’s what it’s all about,” ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall chimes in, supporting McAvay’s actions.
As the cheers subside, McAvay raises his hand for silence before he speaks. “Tonight, I’m not going to talk about anything related to HOW or Lee Best. We’re here to talk about the Heartland pay-per-view.”
McAvay looks around the arena, feeling the anticipation from every single fan. He continues, “The rankings will determine who gets booked on the show, and I’m proud to announce the first two matches decided earlier tonight.”
He pauses for effect. “Jennifer Colton will defend the Women’s Title against Victoria McGill, and The Hanson Sisters will defend the Women’s Tag Team title against The Working Girls!” The crowd roars in approval as Stacee poses next to her husband, basking in the attention.
“Stay tuned because the other four title matches will be decided in the next two weeks’ worth of matches. And of course, we’ll have other thrilling matches booked for the show as well.”
There’s excitement in the air and McAvay knows that the fans can’t wait to see how everything unfolds.
“Next, let me turn your attention to the upcoming Carmondy Cup.” McAvay starts to explain the tournament, comparing it to the FA Cup in the English Football League. “The tournament consists of randomly drawn rounds, and the entrants are not seeded. However, a system of byes based on the level ensures higher-ranked wrestlers will enter in the later rounds.”
He can see the wrestlers themselves getting more and more eager to compete as he continues, “This tournament allows our wrestlers to survive and advance, and just like the FA Cup, the prize money increases with each round!”
“Mark your calendars, folks – the first-round matches will take place on September 15th and 16th! The matches will be drawn this Saturday night at MVW’s house show in Springfield, Missouri.” McAvay proclaims with excitement.
McAvay ends his speech with a grin. “Hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen, because it’s about to get real busy for the next few months.”
As the crowd cheers once more, Ray McAvay and Stacee Perry-McAvay exit the stage, leaving the fans eager for the upcoming Heartland pay-per-view and the Carmondy Cup. The wrestlers themselves feel the weight of the competition ahead, but their determination is stronger than ever.
“Things are heating up here in Missouri Valley Wrestling!” Thunderbolt declares.
“Absolutely,” agrees Hall. “We’re in for one wild ride!”
HEARTLAND REPORT with KELLIE BURKOWSKI
Backstage, Kellie Burkowski stands with a confident posture, microphone in hand. She is in her element as MVW’s backstage interviewer, her eyes sparkling with excitement from the night’s events.
“Earlier this evening,” Kellie begins, “we witnessed an incredible upset when Amberly Stanton defeated ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin to claim the Women’s Heartland Title!” She replays the moment on a nearby screen, vivid images capturing Amberly locking in the Stanton Sleeper, forcing Tessa to submit.
Kellie can’t help but grin, her own passion for wrestling apparent. “Congratulations to Amberly on her hard-earned victory!”
She then transitions to the Men’s Heartland title match, the intensity of the night still palpable. “Champion Luke Woods defended his title against Ken Kardoucheian, ultimately emerging victorious with his signature Arm Octopus Hold.”
The backstage monitor shows Woods standing tall after his win, the crowd roaring with approval. Kellie continues, “But it was what happened next that has everyone talking.”
The clip rolls, showing Woods grabbing the microphone and proclaiming his readiness to move up into the Men’s Division. Kellie watches the scene, her eyes wide with anticipation. “With this announcement, instead of Kardoucheian getting the promotion/relegation match against the #4 ranked wrestler in the Men’s Division, it’s going to be Woods!”
At ringside, Thunderbolt Hall leans forward, intrigued by Woods’ declaration. Rick Hall scratches his stubbled chin thoughtfully, suspecting that Woods may very well be ready for the challenge. “We’ll find out soon enough,” he muses aloud.
Back to Kellie, she recounts the aftermath, her voice tinged with excitement. “And let’s not forget Kris Kardoucheian’s explosive reaction! He had to be restrained by his own sons at ringside!”
The backstage monitor displays Kris Kardoucheian’s furious outburst, adding fuel to the fire of anticipation for what may come next.
“Stay tuned, folks,” Kellie says, her eyes gleaming with an almost mischievous glint. “Because tonight has been full of surprises, and who knows what else is in store!” With that, she tosses it back to Thunderbolt and Hall, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats for more heart-pounding action in the world of MVW Wrestling.

Sports Entertainment Corporation Segment
The camera cuts backstage to the Sports Entertainment Corporation’s luxurious dressing room, where ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann stands confidently in front of a large mirror surrounded by opulent gold trimmings. His reflection seems almost ethereal as he gazes upon himself with pride.
‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann
“Tonight,” Mr. McMann begins, his voice booming with authority, “I need to make something very clear to HOW owner Lee Best.” The intensity in his eyes is palpable as he continues, “Ray McAvay’s words do not represent me or the Sports Entertainment Corporation.”
He smirks, the corners of his mouth curling into a knowing grin. “You see, sports entertainment is the future, and MVW is simply delaying the inevitable. McAvay’s biggest problem is his refusal to push those who truly deserve it, such as Ricky Stevens and the Kardoucheians.”
Mr. McMann walks over to a nearby table, retrieving a thick script from its polished surface. Holding it up as if presenting a sacred artifact, he implores, “Perhaps, if McAvay had an alliance that pushed the people he believes should be pushed, things would be different around here.”
“Take this script, for example,” he says, tapping the pages against his palm. “This is the blueprint for tonight’s Dickinson-Stevens match, and I urge McAvay to use it. It’s time for change, and it starts right here, right now.”
Kellie Interviews Bill Dickinson
Kellie Burkowski navigates through the backstage chaos, microphone in hand, searching for her next interviewee. She spots Bill Dickinson leaning against a wall, his massive frame casting an imposing shadow. As she approaches, he clenches his fists, clearly agitated.
“Bill,” Kellie starts cautiously, “I was hoping to get your thoughts on tonight’s match against Ricky Stevens and the script Mr. McMann just showed us.”
“Look, Kellie,” Dickinson growls, his Southern accent dripping with disdain, “I ain’t in the mood for any BS tonight.” He leans in, his eyes narrowed with determination. “I’m gonna take that so-called ‘script,’ and I’m gonna whap Stevens across the nose with it like he’s a misbehavin’ puppy.”
Kellie takes a step back, sensing the intensity radiating from the MVW Men’s Champion. “And your strategy for the match?” she asks, her voice wavering slightly.
“Three words, darlin’,” Dickinson replies, a wicked smile spreading across his face. “Southern Fried Powerbomb. That boy’s future is lookin’ bleak, and I aim to make damn sure of it.”
With that final declaration, Kellie sends it back to Thunderbolt and Hall at the broadcast table, leaving the audience eager to witness the explosive confrontation between Bill Dickinson and Ricky Stevens.
MAIN EVENT/MEN’S TITLE: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson © vs. Ricky Stevens of the Sports Entertainment Corporation
“Alright, folks,” Thunderbolt Smith announces, his voice filled with excitement. “It’s time for our main event!”
The camera shifts to Heather Cooper standing in the ring, her sultry smile captivating the audience as she lifts the microphone to her lips. “Ladies and gentlemen, introducing first…”
As the opening chords of Iggy Pop’s “Search and Destroy” fill the air, Ricky Stevens emerges from backstage with Dru Danes by his side.
Ricky Stevens and Dru Danes
The confident smirk on his face makes it clear that he believes victory is within his grasp. Following close behind is the calculating, ever-present ‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann.
“From San Francisco, California, weighing in at 185 pounds, a member of the Sports Entertainment Corporation… Ricky Stevens!” Heather announces.
Ricky strikes a pose on stage, soaking up the adoration—or perhaps the disdain—of the crowd. He then descends towards ringside, his eyes locked on the squared circle where he’ll soon face off against ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson.
“Thunderbolt” Smith continues, “And now, ladies and gentlemen, introducing your MVW Men’s Champion…”
Heather Cooper takes a deep breath before continuing. “Hailing from Troy, Alabama, weighing in at 330 pounds, the 330 Pound Southern Brawler… ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson!”
Men’s Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson and Sunny O’Callahan
The arena is suddenly awash in red and blue fog as Hardy’s acapella rendition of “Unapologetically Country as Hell” blares through the speakers. Emerging from the haze, Bill Dickinson stands tall, flanked by his valet, Sunny O’Callahan. Her frizzy blonde hair and faded denim jeans perfectly complement her Southern rock background singer persona, a bottle of Southern Comfort dangling casually from her hand.
“Ya’ll ain’t ready for this,” Dickinson mutters under his breath, his gaze never leaving Ricky Stevens. His thoughts are a swirl of determination and anger, fueled by Mr. McMann’s earlier words. He knows he must stand as the champion of wrestling against the encroaching tide of sports entertainment.
As Sunny leads Dickinson down the ramp, anticipation builds in the arena. Thunderbolt Smith announces, “Our referee for this match will be Davey Keels.”
With both competitors now in the ring, the tension is palpable. The crowd can sense that they’re about to witness something truly explosive—an epic clash between two titans of the sport that could change the course of MVW forever. It all comes down to this moment, and both men know what’s at stake.
The crowd roars as referee Davey Keels counts to three, signaling the end of the match. The arena is alive with energy, the fans on their feet and cheering wildly for Bill Dickinson, who has successfully defended his title. Sweat pours down Dickinson’s face, a mixture of exhaustion and relief evident in his eyes. The ring is bathed in the red and blue glow of victory, and the air is thick with anticipation for what comes next.
“Whoo!” Dickinson hollers, raising his fists triumphantly into the air. He can’t help but feel a surge of pride, knowing that he’s proved once again that he’s the reigning champion of MVW. In the midst of the chaos, Sunny O’Callahan rushes into the ring, wrapping her arms around him in celebration.
Dickinson, still catching his breath from the hard-fought match, glances over at Ricky Stevens, who’s slowly getting to his feet, looking dazed and defeated. Despite their rivalry, Dickinson feels a grudging respect for the man; he put up one hell of a fight.
Keels moves in to raise Dickinson’s arm, officially declaring him the winner. Heather Cooper steps forward, her voice cutting through the noise, “The winner at 12 minutes and 34 seconds… and STILL MVW Men’s Champion… ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson!” The arena erupts in cheers once more, and Keels hands the title belt back to Dickinson, who holds it high above his head.
At ringside, Mr. McMann shakes his head in disappointment. It’s clear that he’s not happy with the outcome, but deep down, he knows that Ricky Stevens gave it everything he had. His plans for sports entertainment domination will have to wait another day.
“Long Haul” Rick Hall chimes in with his commentary, “Ricky did well but ran into a Southern Fried Powerbomb at the end, and that was all it took.” Thunderbolt Smith nods in agreement, quickly wrapping up the show. “Thursday night on Locked and Loaded – the Men’s Tag Team title will be on the line when The Alabama Gang defends the title against The Stevens Dynasty. See you then!”
As the camera fades out, Dickinson continues to bask in the glory of his victory, knowing that he has once again proven his dominance in the world of wrestling. And as long as he holds that belt, he’ll keep fighting for the soul of the sport he loves.
