Cat told us that her retirement is much like any wrestling retirement, so she may be back in the future - but at the moment, she's not taking any more bookings.

Ashley Lane & Nevaeh wrestled Lacey & Rain on Volume 18 btw. It's out-of-print now IIRC but, if you can find a download somewhere, it's one of the better volumes.
Thanks I just ordered 28 to check it out. Hopefully, I'll like it and buy some more in the future. I'd rather buy something like this and support the promotion instead of downloading. I couldn't find a download for 18, but would love to check out that match you mentioned. Why is 18 out of print when all the volumes before it are still for sale?

Shimmer only has so many copies made and when they're gone its OOP and Volume 18 features a title change so that's probably why that's gone out of print quicker.

A lot of the early volumes have sold out now.

These guys still apparently have some 18s stashed away - http://wrestlingsuperstore.com/shimmervolume18dvd.aspx .

New SHIMMER volume's out. When I get paid, I'll buy it.

Also... That ANX/Briscoe video was intense, Crabtree!

SHIMMER NEWS - March 2011

It's the perfect time for a round-up of the latest weird and wonderful goings on in the wider SHIMMERverse, courtesy of yours truly (WARNING: This post may contain SPOILERZ).

You can also read previous updates by clicking on your chosen month, below.


|Dec|Jan|Feb|

***

- We might as well start with a direct quote from the SHIMMER Office...

Quote:

SHIMMER - WOMEN ATHLETES returns to the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL, just outside Chicago, on Saturday & Sunday, March 26th & 27th, 2011. Bell time on Saturday, March 26th will be 2pm. Bell time on Sunday, March 27th will be 1pm. Volumes 37-40 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed over the course of the weekend..

General admission tickets are still available at a cost of $30 for each full day of taping (essentially $15 per DVD). Use the PayPal buttons below to place your order. Seating is very limited at the Berwyn Eagles Club, so if you would like to attend, we strongly advise you to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee admission. We're going to have a full house both days. Since there isn't much time left, all remaining advance ticket orders will be held at the door.
You can go to www.shimmerwrestling.com to book last minute advance tickets and to get more information.

- 'SHIMMER: Volume 35' recently became fully available for sale. It features a triple main event of Eagles vs. McKay, Melissa vs. Kurihara and Hamada vs. Matthews. You can pick up your copy here.

- As always, you can see the Ring of Honor Store's full list of in-stock SHIMMER DVDs here. The latest sale at the store is 25% of all merchandise, you need to enter the code “march25”, during the checkout process, to take advantage of this offer.

- ROH will be showcasing Joshi wrestling, for the first time in it's history, at the upcoming 'Honor Takes Center Stage' event, in Atlanta. S-Ovation/SHIMMER stars Ayumi Kurihara, Tomoka Nakagawa and Hiroyo Matsumoto are scheduled to appear. This booking is testament to the huge impact that these girls have made, since debuting in SHIMMER. Their iPPV matches have yet to be announced but rumours of a tag team contest and a Del Rey-Kurihara showdown have been circulating on the interwebz.

- SHIMMER's Powers That Be, Dave Prazak and Allison Danger, feature on the latest edition of Dave Lagana's 'Promote This!' podcast. Aside from discussing nipslips and evening gowns, they officially announced a SHIMMER dream match of Ayako Hamada vs. Ayumi Kurihara for this weekend's tapings. You can read a great preview write-up of this match (which includes a youtube video of a previous encounter between the two) on the Ring Belles website. This match is sure to have a special feeling about it, in light of recent events in the athletes' native Japan.

- Those who are attending the tapings can support the Japanese girls by purchasing the new Joshi4Hope T-shirt, which you can see below.

Spoiler for Joshi4Hope Tee:


- Also announced, during the course of this podcast, was this year's Diva Dirt 'Alternative Wrestlemania' match. In an attempt to provide an antidote to...whatever garbage WWE intend to serve up, at 'Mania...Diva Dirt and ClickWrestle will be teaming up to offer the opportunity of a *FREE* viewing of Nattie Neidhart (AKA WWE's Natalya) vs. Sara Del Rey, from 'SHIMMER: Volume 7'. This match will be available on www.diva-dirt.com on Wrestlemania Sunday (April 3rd). It will be up for the full 24-hour duration of the day, from 12am to 12am. It seems likely that Nattie will be bumped off the WrestleMania card this year. Either way, you can rest assured that you won't see women's wrestling, like this, anywhere else that Sunday.

You can see a preview of the match below:
Spoiler for Nattie vs. Death Rey:


- Diva Dirt are also currently plugging the availability of Canadian Ninjas vs. MelisChif on ClickWrestle. This was, arguably, the most high-profile tag team match in SHIMMER history. The Ninjas are set to face more tough competition, this weekend, in the form of duos from Japan and the U.K..

- As well as The Knight Dynasty (of Saraya & Britani Knight), Dave Prazak has announced that a third, unnamed, Pro Wrestling Eve talent will make her SHIMMER debut by taking part in a SPARKLE match, this weekend.

- The aforementioned, former SHIMMER Champion, Sara Del Rey recently took part in a 30 minute interview with Diva Dirt. She discussed this weekend's SHIMMER tapings, ROH's TV situation and her thoughts on mainstream women's wrestling. And I quote...

Quote:

...vintage Death Rey.

- Del Rey's latest blog at www.saradelrey.com campaigns for votes, in order that she be including in the much-anticipated tournament to crown the first ever Chikara singles champion. She wants the opportunity to prove that, in wrestling, there should be “no division, by gender or weight class”. As I understand, the vote will (kayfabe...ahem) take place amongst Chikara wrestlers rather than fans. I can't get my head around Chikara at times so...I could be completely wrong on that. Perhaps someone can clear it up. Anyway, whoever's voting should VOTE DEATH REY.

- More news on SHIMMER in the media. SHIMMER features in a column in the Southtown Star. You can also find interviews with Madison Eagles and Saraya Knight on the Fighting Females website.

- SHIMMER veteran Daffney recently parted ways with TNA Wrestling, amid controversy over a workers compensation lawsuit. She made her final official appearance with the company on March 15th. Whether or not she will make a surprise return, to SHIMMER, this weekend is open for debate. She has been playing down the possibility on her Twitter account @screamqueendaff.

- In other TNA news, Ashley Lane (AKA Madison Rayne) continues to dominate the competition in the Knockouts ranks. Her third run with TNA's women's belt has now lasted for a total of 162 days, at the time of writing. She is heading into the all-cage 'Lockdown' PPV, with a Luchas de Apuestas match with main rival Mickie James on the cards. Ashley is currently 16 days short of breaking Awesome Kong's record as the longest-reigning TNA Knockouts Champion in history and now seems certain to beat that mark. This will be an incredible achievement for a girl who originally debuted as The Beautiful People's lackey.

- Finally, 'SHIMMER: Volume 36' is available now, for pre-order, at ROHStore.com. You can find the product here. The show features an all-star 8-Woman Tag Team SHIMMERvor Series Main event.


***

That's all for a jam-packed edition. Any comments/questions/compliments/flames are welcome. Otherwise, until next time, keep supporting independent women's wrestling.
