-Wrestling Night in the Heartland and Lock and Loaded Recaps
-Carmondy Cup Drawing
-Updated Rankings
-This Weekend’s House Shows
-Upcoming MVW House Shows

Tuesday’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland Results:
-Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall kick off the show in the ring.
-Quick look outside, The Kardoucheian Empire continues to picket outside in protest that they have not been properly pushed.  No one pays any attention to them as the fans enter the arena. Thunderbolt reports the Kardoucheians forfeited both of their weekend matches.
-MVW minority owner Joe Bergman comes out and conducts the drawing for the next rounds of the Carmondy Cup.
-Kellie Burkowski comes out to conduct an interview with the Men’s Tag Team Champions The Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens). Scott Stevens is also on hand tonight.  Family patriarch Cary Stevens again says No Quarter got lucky, Daryn Thompson got in a lucky punch.
-That brings out No Quarter (Bracken Krueger/Daryn Thompson).  They just stand on the stage and glare at the Stevens.  Cary tries to goad them into the ring.  He calls No Quarter a bunch of chicken-*BLEEPS*  If they actually show up November 7th in Omaha, Nebraska to face The Stevens Dynasty again, their luck is going to run out.
-The Alabama Gang (R.G. Jenkins/Mark Hendry/’Redneck’ Bill Dickinson) jump The Stevens from behind.  Sunny O’Callahan low blows Cary.  A brawl commences but Jenkins, Hendry, and Dickinson all hit their finishers and leave the Stevens laid out in the ring.
-‘Sports Entertainment Genius’ Mr. McMann sits Ricky Stevens down in his office at the Sports Entertainment Corporation (SEC) and makes it clear if he loses to Luke Woods tonight, Stevens is going to be demoted to being the SEC’s Heartland wrestler.  No pressure.  McMann leaves.  Stevens is pensive.
-MATCH #1-#3 vs. #4 MEN’S TAG TEAM: #3 The Kings of the Wild Frontier (Boone Daniels/Crockett Davies) defeated #4 The Lumberjacks (Dave Strack/Dan Poole)
-Kellie climbs into the ring to interview Daniels and Davies. The Kings talk about their recent travels between MVW and SHOOT Project. They’re getting lots of valuable experience wrestling a wide variety of different tag teams.
-The Alabama Gang (The Kings of the Wild Frontier’s opponent this Saturday) walks up to them.  R.G. Jenkins and Mark Hendry shake the hands of Daniels and Davies and wish them luck.  Then The Stevens Dynasty return and attack Jenkins and Hendry and earned a little payback.
-Finally, MVW majority owner Ray McAvay comes out and he’s had enough of this.  McAvay books The Stevens Dynasty (Bo, George, and Scott) in a six-man tag match against The Alabama Gang (Jenkins, Hendry, and ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson) as tonight’s main event.
-Outside the arena, The Kardoucheians get angrier and angrier because no one will listen to them and acknowledgement their strike.  Kris Kardoucheian tells his sons they are going to have to find a way to get everyone’s attention.
Kellie interviews Luke Woods.  Luke talks about his win Friday night over Buckshot Henderson and knows Ricky Stevens will be a tough opponent.  Luke has plenty of respect for Ricky and looks for a very good match.
-MATCH #2-#2 vs. #3 MEN’S DIVISION: #3 Luke Woods defeated #2 Ricky Stevens
-Woods goes to the back with Mr. McMann as he leaves Ricky in the ring.  Thunderbolt pronounces that the SEC may have the guy who could challenge Bill Dickinson for the title.
-MATCH #3-The Working Girls (Caroline Lewis/’Queen Cool’ Leah Iris) defeat Red State Nation (Victorious Veronica Vincent/Kay Daniels) via DQ when Jill Berg Enterprises (Sheline Carrigan/Madison Miller/Prisoner #034291) run-in and attack them.
-Jill Berg (CEO-Jill Berg Enterprises) says last week, JBE was kind in defeat.  Tonight, they’re here to send a message.  Berg’s security detail dragged ‘Extreme Pizza Delivery Girl’ Tessa Martin (who’d lost the Women’s Heartland title and fallen down the rankings) down to the ring. Jill says “JBE Means Business” and if you can’t get the results… then this is what happens.  Carrigan, Miller, and Prisoner #034291 step forward and destroy Tess, leaving her in a heap on the floor.
-As Heather Cooper introduces the main event, The Kardoucheians ruse the ring and stage a sit-in because their issues have not been addressed.  Both The Stevens Dynasty and The Alabama Gang put their feud aside for a moment to decimate the Kardoucheians and throwing them from the ring.
MAIN EVENT: The Alabama Gang (R.G. Jenkins/Mark Hendry/’Redneck’ Bill Dickinson) v. The Stevens Dynasty (Bo, George, and Scott Stevens)

Syndicated Lock and Loaded Results:
-MATCH #1-WINNER-#5 WOMEN’S TAG TEAM DIV: (Non-Division) Red State Nation (Victorious Veronica Vincent/Kay Daniels) d. #5 LATX (Christina Garcia/Racquel Ramirez)
-Kellie Burkowski interviews Red State Nation.  Vincent and Daniels dismiss LATX.  This is their time and they intend to take full advantage.
-The Working Girls (Caroline Lewis/’Queen Cool’ Leah Iris) cut a promo on Jill Berg Enterprises after their dastardly attack on them on Wrestling Night in the Heartland and warn JBE they won’t forget what they did.
Kellie Burkowski interviews Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.  Lisa doesn’t know much about her opponent other than she’s young, hungry, and making her mark.  Lisa remembers when she was that same person.
-Thunderbolt and Hall recap the chaos between Men’s Tag Team champions The Stevens Dynasty, No Quarter, and The Alabama Gang Tuesday on Wrestling Night in the Heartland.
-Amberley Stanton vignette recapping her young career and becoming the Women’s Heartland Champion.
