They both are the top two most worthy. Hopefully they both hold the gold at some point.

For anyone that hasnt seen Shimmer Vol 35 its definitely worth a watch. Very good show. Nicole Matthews looked fantastic again and it was probably my favourite title defence for Eagles so far.

SHIMMER 36 random thoughts

Bonesaw is terrible. Not a great way to start a DVD.

Mercedes is a pretty damn good talker.

Mercedes is violent. Starting to love her, and her rough-around-the-edges persona, more and more.

Melissa and Hamada are amazing. So much presence.

Leva is improving gradually. She waaay over, so she's won half the battle.

Veronika Vice looked like a female Shane Douglas, in the black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow.

Was Portia drinking Monster during that promo?

Looks like Skater somehow got through the wellness tests again.

Really enjoyed Skater-Ohata. I mark hard for both of them. The Fairy Lock is fucking badass.

Athena has a ton of potential.

Ninjas FTW.

Good use of retrospective video clips on this volume.

Daffney is fucking amazing. She might be the most well-realised character in female wrestling.

A Golf Club FFS!

The “I Quit!” match kinda lost the crowd when they went out of sight of a lot of the people.

Summerlyn is nothing special IMHO.

“Building curfew”...awesome time limit for the Elimination tag.

Some cool spots, like the double dives, Arabian Armdrags, multi-woman stuntrider stretch and the Octuple DDT.

Hamada's a real ring general. You can see that she has everyone's respect and that she directs most of the traffic, when she's in the ring. One of the best wrestlers anywhere in the world.

Melissa pins the champ after a chaotic but, nonetheless, fun match.

Not a must-see volume tbh. I'll probably re-watch Ohata-Skater at some point though. Martinez-Roxx and Aussies-Ninjas stood out too.

Summerlyn is the worst recurring wrestler on the Shimmer shows at the moment, not at bad as the fat old ladies tagteam from the older DVDs. Bonesaw is bad but she at least looks like she can fight, needs to develop some character. Every match with Summerlyn is a toilet break, her feud with Daffney was painfully dull.

SHIMMER - WOMEN ATHLETES returns to the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL on Saturday & Sunday, October 1st & 2nd, 2011. Volumes 41-44 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed over the course of that weekend.

We're announcing the dates this far in advance to give everyone plenty of time to set the dates aside, request time off from work, and start saving money for a potential trip to Chicago. If you've never been to a SHIMMER taping live, but have always wondered what it would be like to catch our shows in person, you've got several months notice to plan ahead and make the trip for these events!

Front row tickets will go on sale in a few weeks. More details will be announced soon.

Mark your calendars! SHIMMER is back October 1st & 2nd in Berwyn!

Anyway, Shimmer must be only having two sets of tapings this year instead of three like the owner said at the last tapings. They were going to have twelve DVDs instead of the usual eight.

SHIMMER WORLD NEWS - April 2011

Might as well limp in with one of these, just as the month ends. So much important stuff has happened, this past month, that this is mostly going to be a retrospective, with only one or two bits from the weird and wonderful drawer...

WARNING: This post may contain SPOILERZ.

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


|Dec|Jan|Feb|Mar|

***


> 'SHIMMER: Volume 36' is still available to buy from ROH's online store. It features an all-star 4-on-4 Elimination Tag main event. You can grab you copy here.

> As always, you can see the Ring of Honor Store's full list of in-stock SHIMMER DVDs here. Unfortunately, the latest sale doesn't apply to SHIMMER releases.

NOTE: Volumes 32 & 34 are temporarily unavailable. They are in the process of being re-stocked.

> History was made, this month, with the first ever SHIMMER Tag Team Title defense on an ROH show. Daizee Haze & Tomoka Nakagawa defended against the Joshi duo of Ayumi Kurihara & Hiroyo Matsumoto.

Spoiler for Epic Photo (Credit: Steve Wright Jr.):


The title defense was the second of two great SHIMMER matches, that were showcased during the two-part 'Honor Takes Center Stage' extravanganza. You can still order the replays, of the shows, here. Once purchased, the shows can be watched as many times as you like, at your leisure, for as long as the internet exists.

The 'Honor Takes Center Stage' DVD release should probably appear within the next six weeks.

> Haze & Nakagawa were defending their gold after being the beneficiaries of a second separate title change on the eventful SHIMMER 37-40 tapings.

> The tapings (of which full spoilers were posted here) also featured various debuting talents.

California girl Christina Von Eerie had this to say, about her first SHIMMER experience...

Spoiler for CVE vid:


> Pro Wrestling EVE stars The Knight Dynasty (of Saraya & Britani Knight) also made their first appearances, to a reception that was described by SHIMMER booker Dave Prazak as “nuclear heat”.

It seems that Britani has made a big impact with the WWE office too. Her recent try-out caused some of the dirtsheets to jump the proverbial gun, by announcing that she had signed a deal. Whether or not she has, it has yet to be officially confirmed.

Johnny Ace is probably fapping his brains out, as we speak...

Spoiler for Britani Knight Pic:



> One SHIMMER star that is confirmed to now be under WWE contract is Tenille Tayla. Australian Tenille trained under Canadian veteran Lance Storm and she can be seen featuring in his new reality show 'World of Hurt'. The first episode, of which, airs tomorrow (Sunday May 1st) at 3pm MST/5pm EST. You can see a video preview below...

Spoiler for WOH clip:


Lance also discussed the show, and Tenille, in more detail on Dave Lagana's 'Promote This!' podcast.

> Another Woman Athlete put pen to paper with WWE, not too long ago, and her first appearance is now almost upon us.

WWE, to their credit, have done a fantastic job of establishing her new “Kharma” gimmick, with a series of promotional vignettes. The third of which, you can see here...

Spoiler for Kharma vid:


The woman in question is, of course, Amazing Kong.

> Ring Belles has been looking back at some of Kong's finest career moments, in anticipation of her big debut. The latest of these looks at her feud with Christy Hemme from her TNA days.

> Daffney's lawsuit aside, the main SHIMMER-related news, coming out of TNA this month, is the end of the record-breaking Knockouts title run of Ashley Lane (AKA Madison Rayne). Her 188 day tenure as champion came to an abrupt end, when a one-armed Mickie James defeated her in a mere 34 seconds.

> In a random merch update, LuFisto has a new T-shirt, available from her online store. Unsurprisingly, it's one for the Japanophiles of the world.

> In related news, Serena Deeb will be returning to the Orient for a trifecta of shows, this weekend. Serena will wrestle on April 30th, May 1st and finally on May 3rd in a one-on-one confrontation with the much-hyped Kana.

> Keep an eye on www.shimmerwrestling.com for an official release date for 'SHIMMER: Volume 37'.

> The only truly fitting way to end this entry, is for us to remember that April 2011 also saw the death of the only male ever to appear on a SHIMMER main show (not counting officials). That being 'Sweet 'n' Sour' Larry Sweeney. The following video clip shows Sweeney operating at the top of his game...

Spoiler for Sweeney in SHIMMER vid:
