SHIMMER 35 Random thoughts...Part I

- Cruise and James are on the actual disc itself, so it's cool that they're the first thing that you see on the show. Not too excited for the match itself though.
- Pretty much your formula big vs. little match. Only with a lot of “modified” moves.
- Chuck Norris reference on commentary.

- Summerlyn botches her promo.

- MISAKI
- I always love the reactions from the crowd, when they don't know who's coming out next. Royal Rumble-esque.
- That 10secs of mat grappling just made me fall in love with wrestling again.
- Ohata can turn anything into a jujigatame.
- Mercedes with a 30secs long vertical suplex.
- This match is already fucking awesome!
- INSANE. BRUTAL.
- A MOTYC already. One of the best <10mins matches I've seen in a long time.

- Mercedes pissed off skank promo.
- They're doing the super slomo replays, from Gabe-era ROH now? Awesome.
- McKay explains the story behind the main event well.

- Sandwiches all over the crowd for Daizee.
- Ariel's out. Suddenly everyone's hiding the sandwiches.
- Portia is on fire, “Nothing says class like having a sandwich in your pants”. Must-see DVD, so far.
- According to Portia, Nakagawa spits water in people's eyes to lubricate their contact lenses. “It's a sportsmanship thing”.
- Daizee stalls the match to eat the sandwich. Genius heel work.
- Portia: “Ariel...ruining the lunch of Daizee Haze”. After Haze attacks her with the sandwich. PMSL at this stage.
- Nakagawa is amazing. Roxx seems to have lost a step.
- Fucking great finish. Haze uses Nakagawa's water spit.
- Fun, colourful match. Haze & Nakagawa look like a legit team now.

- I mark for Laura Mattano.

- Incredible Serena/Portia promo from Volume 34. Incredible.
- Big match feel bro.
- Can't help but think that Portia has something up her sleeve here.
- Can't see myself writing much during this match. Too engrossed.
- Serena clotheslines Portia out of her top.
- Another great finish. Ref stoppage after Ninjas shenanigans.

- SKATER TIEM.
- LOL. Refuses to accept that her open challenge gimmick has ended.
- Kong.
- Seriously, this is fucking great. Skater's antics, with Portia back in the booth.
- Now Skater's in full on bump machine mode.
- Such a good match. It's so easy to do wrestling well. I don't know why so many companies have so many problems with it.

- Right, that first half was ridiculous. Too much to talk about tbh. Buy the DVD now! I need a nap after watching that.

To be continued...

Nakagawa rules... I'm going to watch this when I wake up just for the Portia Perez commentary!

SHIMMER 35 Random thoughts...Part II

- Del Rey vs. Summerlyn up next...
- Lots of shouting.
- Stiff-as-fuck Kappu Kick to the back of the head.
- Digital manipulation from Del Rey. So clever. Working the left-hand of a left-handed wrestler. Innovating and improvising throughout the match.
- Portia's serious commentary is as good as her comedy.
- Another match that's definitely worth watching. Unique.

- Just thinking that I've had about three times my money's worth so far. When, suddenly, I realise that the triple main events are still to come.

- Hamada vs. Matthews – frantic with lots of kicks.
- You know the score, with these two. There's not much that I can say, that hasn't already been said about them.
- Starting to get burnt out now. Too much awesome. Need chocolate.

- Melissa-Kurihara.
- Melissa is such a smart wrestler. Much like a lot of the top SHIMMER girls.
- Kurihara's workrate is crazy. She throws dropkicks like boxers throw jabs.
- Sorry, I just want to watch this. Open Office can swivel.
- Ayumi bridges out of a pin, after a curb stomp. Austin at Wrestlemania 13 moment.
- SHE PINNED MELISSA!!!

- These highlights packages are awesome.

- I'm hoping that this will be Eagles' best title defense.
- Can't see any reason why McKay won't be in WWE before long.
- Eagles counters an octopus stretch into a standing horsecollar stretch. Brilliant.
- This is great. I'm starting to get what Eagles is all about now. Sick submissions and big throws. I don't think she has ever gotten that across properly, in SHIMMER, before. I always had her down as a straightforward tall striker.
- The whole story of the match was spot on. Classic heel vs. babyface. McKay with a never-say-die attitude. Plus the added layer of the two of them knowing each other inside out and reversing each other's big stuff.
- A heel champion winning decisively. There's a novelty, in modern wrestling.
- Much like everyone else involved with this show, Eagles and McKay both come out with their stock raised.

Honestly, this strikes me as one of those shows that you'll look back on, in ten years time, and wish that the company was still around. It reminded me of those shows where ECW would just hit home run after home run, from the top to the bottom of the card.

Making wrestling history.

Shimmer boards say some time in the month of June, here's the cover:

*Spoilers? Not sure*
























I'm looking to get into Shimmer too, it's fun exploring multiple companies. Probably order a few dvds later this summer.


You know you remember this.

Yeah, not sure why they put the strap on her instead of the likes of Cheerleader Mellisa and Martinez who've worked their asses off in the states for years and years.
