Stan jumped from #5 to #3 after defeating Ken Kardoucheian and Average Joe in a three way match last Friday night in Atchison, Kansas but ‘Big Don’ Dickinson put an end to his title hopes the next night in Coffeyville.  Dickinson then defeated ‘Rock Star’ Robbie Marrs Sunday in Dodge City and then came back later on in the show to knock off Ricky Stevens to become the new Men’s Heartland Champion.

No rest for the Heartland Division though.  Ken Kardoucheian and Average Joe meet tomorrow night in Hastings, Nebraska in a #4 vs. #5 match.  The winner there gets Stan on Saturday night in Columbus, Nebraska and then the victor in that match goes on to face #2 ranked ‘Rock Star’ Robbie Marrs in Kearney, Nebraska on Sunday.

#5- Ninja Kitty

Libertie Bell was the last woman standing in a three-way match last Friday night to claim the #3 ranking.  Lani Harlot took the #4 ranking and Ninja Kitty found herself back at #5.  Bell went on to face ‘Precious’ Patty McBride the next night in Coffeyville, Kansas. Unfortunately, McBride put an end to her title hopes with a win and followed that up Sunday with an upset win over #1 Yosemite Samantha in the early match to set up a title match against Tessa Martin.  McBride won the match via DQ after Jill Berg Enterprises interfered so she stayed at #1 in the rankings.

This weekend, it’s the ‘Queen of the Trailer Park’ Lani Harlot taking on Ninja Kitty in a #4 vs. #5 ranked match in Hastings, Nebraska with the winner taking on #3 Libertie Bell later on in the show.  The winner there goes to Columbus, Nebraska to face #2 ranked Yosemite Samantha on Saturday night and then the victor there meets ‘Precious’ Patty McBride Sunday night in Kearney, Nebraska with an opportunity to book themselves into a Women’s Heartland title match August 16th in Des Moines.
