Cletus T. Johnson (Kentucky Redneck Mafia)
Aaron Gray
Dave Mann
*Bergman’s Barn Men’s Champion* Richie Park

-Cletus T. Johnson of the Kentucky Redneck Mafia emerged from the pack of four in the Non-Division to earn a match that could see him rise up to the Men’s Heartland Division.  Cletus beat Aaron Gray on Sunday after knocking off Richie Park on Saturday to reach the final.  Cletus meets Matt Taylor tomorrow on MVW’s 6:05 show in a promotion/relegation match.

#3- The Kardoucheian Empire (Koley and Kourtney)
#4- The Shamrocks (Tom Flynn and Sean O’Grady)
#5- Kings of the Wild Frontier (Boone Daniels and Crockett Davies)

-If the tension between the Alabama Gang and the Stevens Dynasty wasn’t already ratcheting up in advance of their showdown next Saturday in Wichita, Kansas, The Stevens Dynasty may be in even a worse mood after their loss Thursday night to sVo’s Rebel Society at X-PRO’s Aftershock 008.
-MVW Men’s Tag Team Champions The Alabama Gang face PWA Tag Team Champions Dan Ryan and Jatt Starr this Sunday at High Octane Wrestling’s #97Red pay-per-view show in a title match.  R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry beat sVo’s Blood Money tag team and then PRIME’s Masters of the Moscowverse to get to a title match.
-The Kings of the Wild Frontier defeated Bob and Brett Murray for the Murray’s #5 contender’s ranking in the Men’s Tag Team Division but it doesn’t look like they’ll be out of the rankings for long.  MVW has loaned out The Kings of the Wild Frontier and the young tag team will be going to SHOOT to compete.  This means the Murrays will be promoted back to the Men’s Tag Team Division.
