SHIMMER Vol 23:
1. Cat Power vs Nikki Roxx - **1/4 - Solid opener.
2. Amber O'Neal vs Tenille - *3/4 - Tenille looked extremely green here having only been wrestling for a year. Amber could of made some money in WWE if she was a few years younger, no doubt.
3. Melanie Cruise vs Daffney - ** - Zombie hawt. All the time, every time.
4. Sara Del Ray vs Madison Eagles - ***1/4 - Good match, both going hold for hold at the start with some technical finesse and submissions. Investive finish with the headscissor reversal too.
5. Kellie Slater vs LuFisto - ** - Good debut for Slater, she looked solid for someone so green. Fairly short match which is a shame because I love me some LuFisto. Oh well.
6. Nicole Matthews vs Daizee Haze - ***1/4 - ***1/2 - Slightly sloppy in places, but a fantastic effort from both women. Would love to see a rematch down the line.
7. Amazing Kong vs Mercedes Martinez - ***1/4 - All about power here in a complete opposite to the Del Ray vs Eagles match. This is as good as a ten minute match women's match you'll see these days. Also, Kong kills bitches dead.
8. Jetta & Rain (International Home Wrecking Crew) vs Ashley Lane & Nevaeh (SHIMMER Tag Team Title Match, 2 Out Of 3 Falls) - **3/4 - Average match from two very average teams. Add shenanigans with the first and third falls and you have a very underwhelming match.
9. Cheerleader Melissa vs Wesna Busic - ***3/4 - Stiff as hell, these two have wrestled all over the world and as good as this was, you felt they could do much more. The slapfest was freaking awesome.
10. Serena Deeb vs MsChif (SHIMMER Title Match) - *** - Solid match to end the volume. Was probably a bit short for it to be a barnstormer but again, a superb finish puts it just into the 3-snowflake club.
Overall: Superb volume with no less than half the matches being 3-stars or above. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to see some great wrestling from the ladies.
