Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

It's being discussed in over9000 places already but what do people think of Kong signing with WWE, from a SHIMMER perspective?

Assuming that it's true I don't think in all honesty it is a huge loss for Shimmer. Obviously Kong is very talented but her sheer size does affect how they can realistically book her you just can't put many people over Kong and seeing as they don't seem to want to put the title on her you can end up with non-finishes to protect her (see the title match with Del Rey and the tag title match with Del Rey vs Neveah and Ashley Lane). At the moment Shimmer has so many big main eventers they are struggling to fit them all on the cards anyway so this loss isn't as bad as it would of been a year or two ago.

Well by all accounts of what TNA was paying her she can't be that expensive to book

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Yeah, Kongs signed with WWE.

I do think it'll be a loss to SHIMMER, clearly, but I understand what thephenomenalone is saying. If they can get Taylor Wilde in though, then that will be a great signing.

I'm now watching Vol. 33, so i'll review it later on.

To be honest I'm not that big a fan of Taylor Wilde and I'm not sure if she would really benefit Shimmer at the minute. I'd much rather see them use the money it would cost to book Wilde to bring in some new talent who haven't had the opportunity to be on tv.

Agreed. And incidentally, that's also the reason why i wasn't too bothered when she left TNA : there's only so much you can do with such a monster heel before becoming redundant. And with Kong holding the KO championship twice, and the tag championship once, there wasn't much left for her to accomplish in TNA anyway.

In Shimmer, Pazak already tries to book as many wrestlers as possible each volume, without involving the big stars in the title scene, hence the Shimmer girls vs joshi series of matches. With Kong gone, it's one less match to book on the card.

As far as Taylor goes... meh. Bringing her in right now would do nothing but overcrowd the show a bit more (though i don't know if the joshi girls will still be there at the next tapings), without too much upside.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

There are other people who can fill Kongs spot. Plus Kong will now be exposed to the largest wrestling audience and they will hopefully buy a few Shimmer DVDs.

As for Taylor, I don't think she is worth a big payday she probably would want from working for indys.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

As someone already said, I doubt Wilde would demand a huge payday judging by how much she was earning in TNA. Not sure if it was her or not, but I recall a story she told about working part-time somewhere (just to make ends meet while working for TNA, no less) and a TNA fan recognized her and she immediately quit.
