Just watched Vol. 34, and I liked what i've seen, much more so than with the last few volumes. This time, the card seemed more balanced, with less filler than usual (only ten matches on the card).

- Jamilia Craft/Skater was mostly forgettable (Craft is still bland, and the match had a noticeable botch);
- Same thing with Cruise/Leva Bates (Bates is clearly a huge fan-favorite, but she hasn't convinced me yet, and the match was kinda awkward at times);

But aside from those opening matches,
- Roxx/Ohata was fun (Nikki is adorable, as always, but her Barbie Crusher is getting sloppy);
- Daffney/Nevaeh's match was quick, but decent ;
- Tenille/Athena was impressive and very competitive ;
- Veronika Vice/Danger was solid ;
- Summerlyn & James/Canadian Ninjas was a fun tag match (despite Summerlyn & James not being a real threat to their opponents), with Portia feigning injury in the most obvious way.

- Nakagawa/CheerMel : great heel, great face, great abs, great match.
- Hamada/SDR/McKay : solid action, comedic Hamada, and a good triple threat that mostly avoided the pitfall of such matches (ie long periods of time where one of the wrestlers just disappears from the bout).
- Kurihara/Eagles : okay match, but i had a few problems with it. First, Kurihara was clearly never gonna win the belt, which kinda made for a very unsuspenseful match ; next, Eagles is tall, but she lacks the intimidation or the strength factor of a Melissa (or even a Melanie Cruise). She kinda makes up for it with her mat skills, but it comes at the expense of the intensity of the match : here, the first ten or so minutes of the fight were slow and technical/mat-based action, which may disappoint after the two previous high impact matches ; Eagles' finisher still lacks impact : in theory, the Hellbound is nice and everything, but since most indy wrestlers use the move as a transition or a mid-match move, it doesn't make for a very good finisher, imo ; and last but not least, Eagles is not booked as a particularly impressive champ. Aside from a few submission moves here and there, Kurihara looked much better, which doesn't help Eagles case as a memorable champ, as far as i'm concerned.

But all in all, solid SHIMMER volume, which kinda reconciled me a bit with the product.

That said, he was also one of the "better" wrestlers on Hogan's Celebrity Wrestling, so it could be fun to watch.

Watching this Athena vs Tenille match from Volume 34 and Athena is no fucking joke. She has athetlic ability, easy ring awareness, and runs her mouth in that ring like a real heel. Winning the crowd over too. Someone to DEFINITELY keep an eye on from now on.

SHIMMER NEWS - February 2011

It's time for a round-up of the latest weird and wonderful goings on in the wider SHIMMERverse over the past month, courtesy of yours truly.
You can also read previous updates by clicking on your chosen month, below.


|Dec|Jan|



- 'SHIMMER: Volume 35' hasn't surfaced yet. I'd expect it to be out soon. Anyway, as always, you can see the ROH Store's full list of in-stock SHIMMER DVDs here.

- Speaking of ROH, two former SHIMMER Champions are set to collide on February 26th in SHIMMER's hometown of Chicago. Sara Del Rey vs. MsChif will take place as part of the '9th Anniversary Show' iPPV. You can read more about the events leading into the match and find out how to order here.

- MsChif will discuss the Del Rey bout in a special *LIVE* Diva Dirt broadcast tonight (Wednesday 23rd February) at 10pm ET. No doubt, the fast-approaching March SHIMMER tapings and Chif's recent match with 'Saved By The Bell' star Dustin Diamond will crop up in conversation too. You will be able check that interview out at http://diva-dirt.com/live .

- Her opponent Del Rey has long been associated with Ring of Honor and, as well as competing in-ring, she serves as a second for ROH World Tag Team Champions The Kings of Wrestling.

Female fans will be interested to learn that, as a result of this association, Sara is currently selling girls' versions of the new 'KINGS REIGN SUPREME' T-shirts. You can find them on her personal website by clicking here.

- Current SHIMMER Champion Madison Eagles and current co-holder of the SHIMMER Tag Team Championships Nicole Matthews, also have brand new shirts available to buy.

In lieu of official web sites, both Madison and Nicole are taking order requests via PM, through their respective social networking accounts. Click the links, for Madison's Twitter and Facebook and Nicole's Twitter and Facebook. They will also have shirts available during the March SHIMMER weekender in Berwyn.

Spoiler for Shirt pics:



- As well as Del Rey, MsChif and, of course, Daizee Haze, an additional SHIMMER athlete that you'll be able to see on ROH shows, in the coming months, is Mia Yim. Yim debuted, within the past few weeks, as a part of Prince Nana's revamped Embassy. You can see the new stable's introductory promo below:

Spoiler for Embassy Promo:


- Another SHIMMER girl who recently appeared for ROH, Serena Deeb, has completed a tour of Japan since my last update.

You can view both of Serena's matches for the SMASH promotion below:

Spoiler for Serena Matches:



- In other Joshi news, Hiroyo Matsumoto is scheduled to return to SHIMMER as part of the line-up for the March 26th & 27th tapings at the Berwyn Eagles club.

Matsumoto's original stint with SHIMMER was cut short by injury and no doubt she'll be hoping to make a similar impact to that made by her fellow Joshi competitors on previous SHIMMER volumes.

You can find out more about Matsumoto at her English language fansite www.hiroyo-matsumoto.com.

- The SHIMMER debuts of Pro Wrestling EVE stars The Knight Dynasty (of Saraya & Britani Knight) will also add to the international flavour of the upcoming shows.

- Elsewhere in the wrestling world, SHIMMER Alumni Shantelle Taylor (AKA Taylor Wilde) wrestled her retirement match against Cheerleader Melissa, (AKA Alissa Flash) on the 5th of February, at a Pro Wrestling Revolution show in San Francisco. You can watch a preview clip and then purchase the full match at ClickWrestle.

- In TNA news, former SHIMMER Tag Champ Ashley Lane (AKA Madison Rayne) has now racked up a 129-day run as TNA Knockouts Champion. She is currently the longest-reigning champion in that promotion, by quite some distance, and is coming off the back of a big victory over Mickie James at the 'Against All Odds' PPV.

- In the WWE, SHIMMER alumni Nattie Neidhart was pinned by Eve in an improptu Fatal 4-Way match at the 2011 'Royal Rumble' PPV. Nattie relinquished her Divas Championship as a result, bringing to a close a 70-day reign.

- As February comes to an end, you can see the announced talent line-up for next month's SHIMMER DVD tapings, so far, and buy tickets at www.shimmerwrestling.com.

- Another great way to get more info on SHIMMER is to sign up for the official SHIMMER mailing list. Send your name and postal address to shimmernews@yahoo.com .

Those who sign up will receive the latest updates via post including FREE collectable glossy flyers, promoting the SHIMMER events.
