Mississippi Valley Wrestling was a powerhouse of professional wrestling in the state of Mississippi for almost three decades. It was a super-regional, semi-religious organization that spanned most of the length of the Mississippi River. It survived the constant onslaught of the Continental Wrestling Association and United States Wrestling Association and even both versions of [[Wikipedia:Deep South Wrestling|Deep South Wrestlin]. Despite these successes, the MVW was not able to handle the onslaught given to it by an unexpected source: Total Nonstop Action. With the gaining of TNA's popularity and its rivalry with [[Wikipedia:World Wrestling Entertainment|World Wrestling Entertainmen], wrestling fans wanted a more national approach to professional wrestling instead of pro wrestling's backbone of independent, regional federations. At its height, the MVW had 60+ wrestlers under contract at one time. The bell curve of MVW history was complete as it both began and ended with twelve wrestlers.
