Missouri Valley Wrestling
Wrestling Night in the Heartland
Tuesday October 18th, 2022
SIU Arena
Carbondale, Illinois

Announcers: Thunderbolt Smith and ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall
Backstage Interviewer: Kellie Burkowski
Ring Announcer: Heather Cooper

Kellie and HeatherHall and Thunderbolt1
Kelli Burkowski, Heather Cooper, ‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall, and Thunderbolt Smith

Thunderbolt welcomes everyone to tonight’s edition of Wrestling Night in the Heartland- live from the SIU Arena in Carbondale, Illinois.

No title matches tonight.  But two #1 contender’s matches.
-‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson defends the MVW Men’s Title two weeks from tonight in Chicago, Illinois against the winner of Captain Jack and John O’Reilly.
-The Stevens Dynasty will also find out who their opponents will be in Chicago.  Will it be the Kentucky Redneck Mafia?  Or will it be The Alabama Gang?

‘Long Haul’ Rick Hall runs down tonight’s matches.

#2 vs. #3 MATCH-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM: #2 The Hanson Sisters (Andrea and Melissa) vs. #3 The Working Girls (C.J. Lewis/’Queen Cool’ Leah Iris)

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-The Hansons and The Working Girls have been dueling it out for the #2 contender ranking for the past few weeks.
-Lewis and Iris have caught a gust of wind that’s propelled them back into the Women’s Tag Team rankings.  The former tag team champions would like nothing more than to climb back into title contention.
-The Hansons also have faced some adversity and nearly fell out of the rankings. But they’ve righted the ship and look to take another shot at getting past the Missouri Valley Fight Club for a title shot against Jill Berg Enterprises.

#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-MEN’S TAG TEAM: #1 The Kentucky Redneck Mafia (Cletus T. Johnson/Enos T. Johnson) vs. #2 The Alabama Gang (Mark Hendry/R.G. Jenkins)

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-The Alabama Gang are for real and they are one step away from getting their hands on The Stevens Dynasty.  Hendry and Jenkins want to take their revenge on the Stevens costing them a promotion/relegation match a few weeks ago.
-Cletus and Enos have adjusted to their new valet Lillie Mae aka… The Girl in Every Country Song.  They gave the Stevens Dynasty everything they could handle at the Heartland PPV and now must defeat the hottest tag team in MVW right now.

#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-MEN’S DIVISION: #1 Captain Jack vs. #2 John O’Reilly

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-Captain Jack swashbuckled all the way up the Men’s Division and took his shot at Men’s Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson at Heartland only to get smacked down decisively.  Now, he faces the man he supplanted as the #1 contender several weeks back with a title shot against Dickinson on the line.
-O’Reilly suffered quite the hangover after Adam Ellis relieved him of the title in May by June found himself in danger of dropping out of the Men’s Division.  He’s turned it around since and moved his way back up the rankings.  A win tonight would give O’Reilly another shot at Bill Dickinson.

MAIN EVENT/NON-TITLE: Women’s Champion: Victoria McGill vs. Yosemite Samantha

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-Coming off a huge win against Debbie the Destroyer last week, Yosemite Samantha’s confidence is running high as she gets a chance to see what she can do against the Women’s Champion Victoria McGill.
-McGill has been training at Joe Bergman’s Barn- a happy byproduct of her ongoing relationship with Bergman- and looking as good inside the ring as ever.  Tori’s riding high following her demolition of Lisa Barbosa-Stevens at Heartland and she looks to continue the good times.

We cut to Kellie Burkowski backstage with C.J. Lewis and ‘Queen Cool’ Leah Iris

Leah Iris Comments:
-Responding to Kellie’s question about her husband ‘Rock Star’ Robbie Marrs and his involvement in the World Series of Wrestling, Leah says she’s proud of her husband and is rooting for him to do well.
-Leah admits tonight is a big night.  A win and they get a #1 contender’s match.  Lots on the line.  She feels C.J. and her are ready.

C.J. Lewis Comments:
-C.J. says the work Leah and her have been putting into at Joe Bergman’s (C.J. is Joe’s younger sister) Barn is paying off.
-She says the time she spent at High Octane Wrestling was a good experience but now she’s once again 100% focused on her wrestling career.  The results speak for themselves.

After the interview, we cut away for a commercial break.

The distinctive opening of Donnie Iris’s classic song “Ah Leah” rumbles over the loudspeakers.  “Queen Cool” Leah Iris struts out from the back and she’s bopping along with the song.

After pausing on stage, Iris skips down the ramp moving and grooving to the beat.  She rolls into the ring and parades around a couple times. THEME MUSIC: “My Kind of Girl”- Collin Raye

WINNER: The Working Girls

Hell of a match.

Rick Hall Comments:
-Lewis and Iris have sharpened their focus in the past few weeks and the results have shown.  The Working Girls got on top of the Hansons early and had to fend off a furious battle at the end from the former champions.
-It went back and forth until finally, Iris hit the Pittsburgh Rocker Dropper on Melissa to secure the win.
-The Working Girls move up to #2; The Hansons fall back to #3.

-Do the Kentucky Redneck Mafia care who we are in the ring with? NO!  When the KRM gets knocked down and experiences adversity, do they stay down? HELL NO!
-She admits the Alabama Gang is the team everyone’s thinking can take down The Stevens Dynasty.  Just one little problem.  The Kentucky Redneck Mafia wants to be the team who takes down the Stevens.
-Lillie Mae tells the Alabama Gang to bring it on because if they don’t wanna step it up next week, the Kentucky Redneck Mafia are going to stomp the holy hell out of you.

Sunny O’Callahan Comments:
-The Alabama Gang don’t give a rat’s ass who they’re facing.  The result will be the same because the Alabama Gang will kick anyone’s ass who dares get in their way.
-She hopes The Stevens Dynasty is watching tonight because what’s happening tonight to The Kentucky Redneck Mafia is going to happen to them.  They can run.  They can talk.  But they can’t hide.

WINNER: The Alabama Gang

Hendry and Jenkins continue their march up the rankings by claiming another big scalp in the Kentucky Redneck Mafia.

Rick Hall’s Comments:
-The Alabama Gang weren’t at their top form but they did more than enough to keep Cletus and Enos off balance and hit the Alabama Slam on Enos to settle all matters.
-Now, Hendry and Jenkins have what they want- a shot at the Stevens Dynasty.

As if on cue, the patriarch of The Stevens Dynasty Cary Stevens walks out on the stage with Bo and George Stevens for the obligatory pre-title defense staredown.

The two teams will meet on November 1st in Chicago for the MVW Men’s Tag Team title.

We cut backstage where Kellie Burkowski has former Men’s Champion John O’Reilly with her.

-He has nothing but good things to say about Captain Jack and he’s looking forward to a good match with him tonight.  He adds he’s only one match away from a title shot and he will do everything he can to earn that shot.

-John O’Reilly delivered an emphatic statement tonight with his quick two-minute demolition of Captain Jack.

‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson appears on the stage.  He’s joined by his brother ‘Big Don’ Dickinson and valet Sunny O’Callahan.

Bill Dickinson

Bill Dickinson’s Comments
-Dickinson makes clear he’s not out here to disparage John O’Reilly. He admires the way he willed himself into becoming a good wrestler, his ferocity, tenacity, and his lethal Cannonball Right Hand.
-Dickinson recognizes O’Reilly is a former Men’s Champion and the very mention of his right hand strikes fear in the hearts of ordinary men.
-But… he reminds everyone that Bill Dickinson is anything but ordinary.  He is the personification of the term- “The 330 Pound Southern Brawler.”  In two weeks, John O’Reilly will find out why.

MAIN EVENT: Women’s Champion: Victoria McGill vs. Yosemite Samantha- NON-TITLE

“Moth to a Flame” by Metallica roars over the public address system.  The stage turns red and the video screen shows a few tumbleweeds blowing by.
