Thunderbolt hopes everyone had a great Thanksgiving and welcomes everyone to tonight’s edition of Wrestling Night in the Heartland.  We are live from the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, Illinois with a big show in store for everyone.

Two title matches…

Also two #1 contenders’ matches on the card…

Rick Hall previews tonight’s matches.

#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-WOMEN’S TAG TEAM: #1 The Missouri Valley Fight Club (Harley Davisson/Carrieanne McDermott) vs. #2 The Rose Warriors (Geena the Warrior Princess/Eliza Rose)

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-The Missouri Valley Fight Club know what they need to do.  They already have one title match lined up at Evening of Champions.  A win here would guarantee them another title match in early 2023 if the MVFC don’t win at Evening of Champions.
-The Rose Warriors have also been in this position before.  They continue to confound the ‘experts’ by continuing to be a major factor in the Women’s Tag Team Title picture.  Can the Rose Warriors do it again and shock the system by earning a Women’s Tag Team title shot?
-Or… will Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott take care of business tonight?

#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH-WOMEN’S DIVISION: #1 Yosemite Samantha vs. #2 Shizuko Yamazaki

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-Like a whirlwind, Yosemite Samantha blew through the Women’s contenders last month to put herself in position for a title shot. She gave Victoria McGill everything she could handle before the Women’s Champion finally prevailed in a very entertaining match.  Now, Yosemite Samantha must get past Shizuko Yamazaki to earn another shot at Tori McGill.
-Shizuko Yamazaki is coming off an emphatic win over Lisa Barbosa-Stevens.  Now, Yamazaki has a chance to get herself another opportunity to regain the title from McGill.  Can she find a way to slow down the high-speed offense of Yosemite Samantha?
-Or…will Yosemite Samantha continue to blow away her competition and book herself another title opportunity.

MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: The Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens) © vs. The Kardoucheian Empire (Koley and Kourtney Kardoucheian)

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-The Stevens Dynasty and the Kardoucheian Empire are going to get well acquainted with each other in the next few weeks.  First, tonight’s showdown for the Men’s Tag Team Title.  Then on December 10th, The Stevens Dynasty and the Kardoucheian Empire will meet in the finals of the Carmondy Cup.  Lastly, the two teams will meet for the title at the St. Louis Supershow in January.
-Can The Stevens Dynasty stay focused on the job at hand- defending the belts tonight?
-Can The Kardoucheian Empire finally… FINALLY… break through and get their big title win?

MEN’S TITLE: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson © vs. Ricky Stevens

Rick Hall’s Preview:
-Men’s Champion ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson will get a belly full of John O’Reilly in the next few weeks.  Dickinson faces O’Reilly in the finals of the Carmondy Cup, for the Men’s Title at Evening of Champions, and for the belt at the St. Louis Supershow… that is if he gets past the challenge of Ricky Stevens tonight.
-Ricky Stevens has quietly moved up through the Men’s Heartland Division and the Men’s Division.  Backed by the Stevens Dynasty, Stevens will come into tonight’s match with a lot of confidence.
-Can Stevens pull off the shock win and end Bill Dickinson’s second title reign?
-Can Dickinson give Stevens his full attention tonight with the Men’s title in the balance?

Kellie Burkowski is backstage with Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose.

Rose Warrior Comments:
-Geena tells Kellie they won’t get caught up in a war of words with their opponents.  The Rose Warriors have a job to do tonight and that’s to find a way past one of the best tag teams in MVW history.
-Eliza Rose agrees with Geena.  The Rose Warriors will do what they always do- go out and give their best effort and then see where the chips fall.

Harley Davisson, Carrieanne McDermott, and their manager Molly Hatchett are backstage.

Molly Hatchett Comments:
-The MVFC has nothing personal against the Rose Warriors.  It’s just with every passing day, the Missouri Valley Fight Club’s drive to win back the titles grows. Geena and Eliza- the MVFC hopes you’re listening because in just a few minutes an unstoppable train’s coming down the tracks and their name is Harley Davisson and Carrieanne McDermott.
-The Missouri Valley Fight Club are on the way to becoming the best tag team in MVW history and they will prove that when they become five-time Women’s Tag Team Champions.

Back to Thunderbolt… it’s time for our first commercial break.

Takeover by Geena but then Davisson rolls her up into a cover… 1… kickout by Geena.  Right hand by Davisson rocks Geena.  Geena fights back.  Davisson slaps on a headlock.  Geena powers out and runs Davisson over.  Geena runs the ropes again- Davisson gets up and Geena runs her over again. Geena hauls Davisson up- McDermott runs in… double suplex on the way- Geena fights that- DOUBLE SUPLEX TO HARLEY DAVISSON AND CARRIEANNE McDERMOTT!  The fans go crazy.  Geena drags Davisson up… vertical suplex on the way…. BOOM!  Cover! 1… 2… NO!  Davisson kicks out but Geena drags her right up.  She whips Davisson into their corner and tags in Rose. Rose fires a rapid-fire number of forearms to Davisson.  Finally, Hawkins starts a count and Rose lets off at the count.  Geena gets a couple shots in on Davisson and puts her in a full nelson.  Rose with kicks until Hawkins starts another count and she steps back.  Snapmare to Davisson.  Cover… 1… 2… KICK OUT!  Rose stays all over Davisson and fires more forearms at her.  Rose whips her to ropes-  follows- ducks ‘n’ dodges… SLINGBLADE! Cover… 1… 2… NO! Davisson kicks out and needs to tag out… badly.  Rose brings Davisson up- DAVISSON WRENCHES OUT.  Right hand ROCKS Rose! Davisson brings Rose to the MVFC corner and tags in Carrieanne McDermott.  Davisson and McDermott lift Rose up… DOUBLE-SUPLEX!  McDermott covers… 1… 2… NO! Rose kicks out.  McDermott to the mat with a leg scissors and she’s going to try and squeeze the life out of Eliza Rose.  Rose tries to escape- McDermott transitions to a Straight Jacket Crossface and Rose is in a world of hurt.  Rose screams out.  Geena takes a step through the ropes- Hawkins stops her.  Harley Davisson comes in.  McDermott pulls Rose up and the Missouri Valley Fight Club whips her into the corner. Harley Davisson whips C.  McDermott in for a hard clothesline to follow up.  McDermott covers… 1… 2… NO!  Rose gets a shoulder up.  McDermott’s arm drags Rose over and locks on an armbar.  Geena finally races in and breaks the hold.  Rose back up- she hits a missile dropkick on Carrieanne.  SURPRISE ROLL UP COVER… 1… 2… NO!

WINNER: The Rose Warriors

Billy Hawkins raises the Rose Warriors’ arms in victory and Geena the Warrior Princess and Eliza Rose will get a title shot against the Women’s Tag Team Champions in early 2023!

Davisson and McDermott can’t believe what’s just happened.

Rick Hall’s Comments:
-BIG surprise here.  The Missouri Valley Fight Club looked fatigued from a quick run of matches and opened the door for the Rose Warriors.  Geena and Eliza Rose were more than happy to walk right through it.
-The Rose Warriors get the win and move up to the #1 contender’s spot in the Women’s Tag Team Division to earn a title shot in 2023.

Kellie has Yosemite Samantha with her backstage.

Yosemite Samantha Comments:
-She tells Kellie that she’s staying at the top.  She wants another shot and she’s put her name on the ballot for a rematch with Victoria McGill.  Tonight, Yosemite Samantha will take care of business when she takes care of Shizuko Yamazaki. In 2023, whether it’s McGill or whoever is the Women’s Champion, Yosemite Samantha is going to come calling with a Shotgun Knee and Cannonball to take the belt.

Thunderbolt announces it’s time for our second commercial break.  Yosemite Samantha and Shizuko Yamazaki coming up next but before we go to our commercial message.

MVW owner Ray McAvay stands in what is a very busy concourse.

Ray McAvay and Stacee Perry

Why is it busy?

McAvay explains this is a special night where we are honoring one of the greats in pro wrestling- High Octane Wrestling’s World Champion Christopher America.

Cut to a booth where there’s a mannequin dressed up like Christopher America with a picture of America’s face placed over the mannequin’s head.   McAvay says for $10 you get the privilege of being in the presence of the ‘greatness of Christopher America.’

A person hands over $10 to the girl taking the money.  Then he walks up to ‘Christopher America’ and kicks him in the balls.

Now it’s time for our commercial break.

Rick Hall’s Comments:
-Impressive win for Yosemite Samantha.
-She blitzed Yamazaki from the opening bell and didn’t let up until she hit the Shotgun Knee/Cannonball combo to seal the win.
-Yosemite Samantha is wrestling at a level she’s never wrestled at before.  She is a legit contender.

-The patriarch of the Kardoucheian family- Khris Kardoucheian- stands inside the Kardoucheian’s Hollywood-style dressing trailer located outside the arena.  He’s flanked by his sons: Ken, Koley, and Kourtney.

Khris Kardoucheian’s Comments:
-He complains again that MVW refuses to treat his sons with the utmost respect Hollywood stars who have millions of fans all over the world deserve.
-This should be a no-brainer.  The Kardoucheian Empire deserve to the Men’s Tag Team Champions.  They are stars.  The Stevens Dynasty are not.  The Stevens Dynasty do not have millions of fans all over the world who love them.  The Stevens Dynasty are not Hollywood stars.  They are just… wrestlers.
-It’s long overdue that MVW does the right thing.  The right thing is The Kardoucheian Empire- MVW Men’s Tag Team Champions.

-Kellie Burkowski has Stevens Dynasty Patriarch Cary Stevens with her backstage.  Also with Cary: Bo, George, Scott, and Ricky Stevens.

Cary Stevens Comments:
-The Kardoucheians are prima donna pretty boys who think they’re pro wrestlers.  Bo and George Stevens are pro wrestlers.  They won the title in the ring.  It’s up to the Kardoucheians to do the same.  It’s up to the Kardoucheians to prove that they have what it takes to win the Men’s Tag Team title.  It’s up to the Kardoucheians to pin Bo or George… one… two… three… to take the titles from the Stevens Dynasty.  But they won’t.  Why?  The fact of the matter is Bo and George continue to be the best tag team in MVW.  Period.

Before we get to the Men’s Tag Team Title match, Thunderbolt and Hall recap last Friday’s Carmondy Cup Semi-Finals…

MATCH #3-MEN’S TAG TEAM TITLE: The Stevens Dynasty (Bo and George Stevens) © vs. The Kardoucheian Empire (Koley and Kourtney Kardoucheian)

“Morning” by Francis and the Lights brings out Khris Kardoucheian, followed by Koley, Kourtney, and Ken Kardoucheian.

The video screen flashes through several scenes from the Kardoucheian’s reality show ‘Krampin’ Up with the Kardoucheians.’

The Kardoucheians ham it up on the stage and pose for the fans- to a middling reaction.  Some boos.  Some cheers.  The rest… indifference.

Khris leads them down the ramp to the ring.


“STEVENS DYNASTY” appears next on the video screen with a Texas flag waving in the background and Hank Williams Jr.’s “My Name is Bocephus” playing on the public address system.  Bo Stevens walks out with Stevens Dynasty patriarch Cary Stevens.

“Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd comes on next and George Stevens lumbers out on stage.

Cary leads the group down the ramp to the ring where Heather Cooper awaits.

Thunderbolt steps in at this point.  We’ll have the in-ring introductions after these commercial messages but first…

The line continues to cycle through as people pay $10 to bask in the greatness of a mannequin dressed like Christopher America.  How do they show their appreciation?
-one man throws an egg at ‘America’s’ face and it covers it with yolk.
-another one walks up to ‘America’ and smashes a pie into his face.
-and last, but not least, a man walks up to the mannequin holding a bowling ball.  Without hesitation, he rears back and drives the bowling ball right into the balls causing the mannequin to literally break in half.

But that’s okay… the mannequin is quickly replaced with another and the tribute to Christopher America continues.  Time for commercial break.

The referee for this match will be Ron Martin.

The teams sort out.  Bo Stevens and Koley Kardoucheian will start.  The bell sounds and they tie up, Koley fires off right hands and kicks to back.  Bo retreats to ropes and hooks the top rope. Ron Martin counts and Koley steps back. He goes to whip Bo- Bo reverses.  Koley tries a dropkick but Bo steps to the side.  Koley shoots the leg and takes Bo down.  He kicks and stomps Bo and throws him to the corner.  Koley tags in Kourtney and the Kardoucheians mug Bo with big haymakers from all sides!  George lumbers int the ring and clobbers Koley from behind.  George lets out a roar and nearly drives ALL the air out of Kourtney’s lungs with a nasty right hand to the gut.  Martin starts a count on the non-legal people in the ring and then we’re back to Bo and Kourtney.  Bo pulls him up and whips him to the corner.  Bo charges in and slams into Kourtney.  High angle back suplex by Kourtney.  Cover… 1… 2… kick out by Bo Stevens.   Bodyslam by Kourtney and then he covers again… 1… 2… No.  Kick out by Bo.  Koley back in and the Karoucheians hook up Bo… DOUBLE SUPLEX!  Cary Stevens screams at the referee over the double team.  George Stevens nearly comes in again.  Bo gets hip tossed by Kourtney who then decides to take a moment to play to the crowd. Then her covers… 1… 2… Bo kicks out again.  He tries to get to his corner but Kourtney hits a kick to the midsection and doubles him over… DDT!  Cover… 1… 2… NO! Bo JUST kicks out in the nick of time.  LOW BLOW BY BO!  He scrambles to his corner- HOT TAG TO GEORGE STEVENS.  George comes in.  Clubbing right hand.  He whips Kourtney to the ropes… BIGGGGGG BODY DROP!  Cover… 1… 2… Shoulder up.  George pulls Kourtney up… High Angle DDT.  George just SPIKES Kourtney down!  Cover… 1… 2… NO!  Shoulder up again.  George tags in Bo Stevens. Spinning back kick by Bo. High kick to Kourtney by Bo.  Now it’s Kourtney who needs to tag out so he kicks Bo Stevens in the balls and makes the hot tag to Koley Kardoucheian. Koley roars in the ring with right hands… ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR.  Suplex into a front slam by Koley followed with a swinging DDT to Bo Stevens.  Cover… 1… 2… No! Bo is out just before the three count.  Back suplex by Koley and he covers again… 1… 2… NO!  Bo JUST got the shoulder up.  Cary Stevens on the apron now and he is concerned.  Koley pulls Bo up… TOUR OF THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS!  Bo is out of it after taking the finisher… KOLEY GETS TAKEN DOWN!  SCOTT STEVENS IN THE RING AND HE’S KICKING THE HELL OUT OF KOLEY KARDOUCHEIAN!  MARTIN CALLS FOR THE BELL… and Heather Cooper makes the official announcement.

WINNER VIA DQ: The Kardoucheian Empire- The Stevens Dynasty remain the MVW Men’s Tag Team Champions



And Khris Kardoucheian is livid!  He yells at Cary Stevens across the ring as all three of his sons are getting beaten down by George and Scott Stevens.

Cary just flips him off and claps his hands in approval.

MVW Security sprint down the ramp to quell the hostilities.

Rick Hall Comments:
-The Stevens Dynasty seemed sluggish tonight and The Kardoucheians wrestled their best match ever in MVW.  They fully deserved the win.  The Stevens Dynasty were disqualified for outside interference and that handed the win to the Kardoucheian Empire- but The Stevens Dynasty retain the Tag Title.
– Khris Kardoucheian has a legitimate argument.  His sons should be the new MVW Men’s Tag Team Champions.

As the line continues to move through, Kellie Burkowski is on the scene and witnesses:
-a man throwing a dart that sticks out of ‘America’s’ forehead.
-a woman throwing a water balloon that soaks the mannequin.
-a man walking up to give ‘America’ a nougie.

Kellie is about to interview someone who’s about to tar and feather ‘America’ when suddenly someone jumps the table and tackles the mannequin.  Once the hat comes off the man, it’s clear who he is…

Kellie Burkowski: THAT’S SCOTT STEVENS!

Scott Stevens- MVW Pix

-Stevens literally tears the mannequin apart before MVW Security runs down to restore order so the mannequin can be replaced for the guy who wants to tar and feather ‘America.’

And with that, time for our final commercial break.

Back from break, Thunderbolt takes us back to last week and comments from Men’s Champion Bill Dickinson and Cary Stevens of the Stevens Dynasty…

(REPLAY- Last week’s Wrestling Night in the Heartland)
Kellie Burkowski joins Dickinson in the ring after Murray is scraped up and helped from ringside.

Dickinson’s Comments:
-No offense to Bob Murray, but Dickinson’s on a mission right now and that’s to ‘do the double.’
-When Kellie asks what that is, Dickinson says it means he’s going to win the Carmondy Cup and retain the Men’s Title against John O’Reilly at Evening of Champions.

That brings out the Stevens Dynasty led by Family Patriarch Cary Stevens… then ‘The Demi-God of HOW’ Scott Stevens, Men’s Tag Team Champions Bo and George Stevens, and Dickinson’s challenger next week- Ricky Stevens.

Cary Stevens’s Comments:
-Cary asks Dickinson if he’s forgetting something… like the title defense next week in Peoria, Illinois against his son Ricky Stevens?

Dickinson smiles and we have ourselves a stare down

MAIN EVENT-MEN’S TITLE: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson © vs. Ricky Stevens

“STEVENS DYNASTY” appears next on the video screen with a Texas flag waving in the background and Hank Williams Jr.’s “My Name is Bocephus” playing on the public address system.  Stevens Dynasty patriarch Cary Stevens walks out with Bo, George, and Scott Stevens.

“Search and Destroy” by Iggy Pop comes on next and Ricky Stevens walks out on stage with Dru Danes.

After a group pose, Cary leads the Stevens Dynasty down the ramp to the ring.


Hardy’s “Unapologetically Country as Hell” comes on.  There’s fog on the stage. Sunny O’Callahan comes out first.

Then ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson joins her.

They stop on stage for a moment.  Dickinson and Stevens lock eyes.  Then Dickinson and O’Callahan walk down the ramp towards ringside.

The rest of the Alabama Gang (Mark Hendry, R.G. Jenkins) also come out from the back and they follow.

The bell rings, Dickinson methodically moves forward.  Stevens moves side to side and circles.  Dickinosn corners Stevens.  Right hand by Dickinson.  Stevens comes back with a kick to the knee.  Dickinson ROCKS with another right hand!  Dickinson with a waistlock… BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!  Ricky rolls under the ropes to the floor where Bo and George Stevens help him down.  Dickinson runs the ropes and… HE DIVES THROUGH THE ROPES!  He takes out the Stevens Dynasty like a bowling ball taking out 10 pins.   But Stevens back up- he DIVES drives Dickinson into the railing! Stevens goes to the ring apron.  He flies… Dickinson moves and Stevens crashes into the barricade.  Dickinson drags Stevens up puts him back in in the ring.  Cary Stevens and The Stevens Dynasty act like they’re about to spring into action but they don’t.  Stevens hurries up the corner turnbuckle.  He leaps….

WINNER: ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson

Rick Hall’s Comments:
-No shenanigans in this match.  The Stevens Dynasty thought about it but with the Alabama Gang at ringside they did not try to interfere in the match.
-Ricky Stevens didn’t back down from ‘Redneck’ Bill Dickinson at all.  Unfortunately, Dickinson looked very good tonight as he cruised to the win to remain the Men’s Champion.

Evening of Champions is less than three weeks away.
