Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

While not strictly about SHIMMER, Mercedes Martinez wrestled Lexxus for 73 minutes last night at the WSU DVD tapings.

That's not a typo. SEVENTY-THREE minutes.

The Women Of Wrestling Podcast is back, and we have our own website!

We talk to HAILEY HATRED about wrestling in Japan, being there during the earthquake and winning the JWP Openweight Championship.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Not a match on this planet cam hold my attention for 73 minutes. Didn't Martinez participate in an 70 or 80 minute Ironwoman match in WSU before?

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Yeah she went 70 minutes with Angel Orsini. I really don't see why they did a match that long other than to say they did a match that long. I'm a few shows behind on WSU so I haven't seen Lexxus yet but I just don't understand it from a booking point of view. It made sense for Mercedes and Angle to go that long because it was a blow off match for a long running feud but this is the first meeting between these two I think so where do you go from there, if they have another match they can't really go longer and if either wins in a 'normal' time then it just makes you wonder why they couldn't beat each other quicker the first time round.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

I thought the 70minute Mercedes/Orsini match was also too long, they could've easily make it a "normal" 60minute ironwoman match. This match sounds more like a gimmick with the sole purpose of breaking that 70minute record. I hope they arent going to try to break this record every year.

I don't know, Chikara's Ciberneticos are pretty fun, and some of them have gone for well over 60 minutes (one was an entire show).

But, I'll check out the match, nonetheless. I liked the Martinez/Orsini, so hopefully this one doesn't disappoint either.

Marking for: Asuka

The roster for October's tapings looks solid. I hope the Knight Dynasty are announced soon for the tapings.

Two former SHIMMER Tag Team Title holders in HIROYO MATSUMOTO and NEVAEH return to SHIMMER competition on October 1st & 2nd. After enjoying great success in the tag team ranks earlier this year, Hiroyo has expressed her intention to focus on singles competition on Volumes 41-44. After being absent from Volumes 37-40, Nevaeh, one half of the very first SHIMMER Tag Champs, looks to make her mark once again within the SHIMMER ranks come October.

YUMI OHKA comes to us from the Pro Wrestling WAVE organization in Japan. A ten year veteran of the ring, Ohka got her start in the JD Star promotion in 2001. She is currently aligned with Misaki Ohata as part of the Black Dahlia faction in WAVE. Visit for more on Pro Wrestling WAVE.

After breaking into professional wrestling in the Midwest region of the United States, HAILEY HATRED switched her focus to the women's wrestling scene in Japan. She relocated there with the goal of achieving great success, and made history in June of 2011 by becoming the first gaijin competitor to win the JWP Openweight Championship. Hailey will return to the United States for a brief trip to participate in Volumes 41 & 42 on Saturday, October 1st (she will be appearing for AIW in Ohio on Sunday, October 2nd). Don't miss the SHIMMER debut of Hailey Hatred! Tickets are now on sale.

Click on the link below to order Volume 37 on DVD.

Vol. 37 is the first release in the SHIMMER series to feature the new clear DVD case, with artwork viewable on both the inside and outside of the case!

Earlier releases in the SHIMMER series are still available from ROH at (the Ring of Honor web store). If you need any older SHIMMER DVD titles (between Vols. 21 and 36) which ROH no longer has in stock, E-mail for information on ordering those titles directly from SHIMMER.


During early 2010, Madison Eagles began her road to eventually unseat MsChif and become the third SHIMMER Champion. At that same time, rising female stars Jessie McKay and Nicole Matthews also began a competitive rivalry with one another in SHIMMER action.

Having followed similar paths in different parts of the world, both young athletes enjoyed success early in their respective careers, with McKay earning the PWWA Championship in Australia while Matthews secured the ECCW SuperGirls Championship in Canada. The two crossed paths with one another in the United States during Jessie's SHIMMER debut, and then again in a singles bout on SHIMMER Volume 30. On both of those occasions, Nicole scored the pinfall. A singles rematch soon followed, which resulted in McKay getting her hand raised in victory.

Though Matthews was the first of the two to achieve a SHIMMER Championship (the Tag Team Championship with partner Portia Perez as "The Canadian Ninjas"), McKay was the first to work her way into a shot against the SHIMMER Champion, as she took on Madison in the main event of SHIMMER Volume 35. Eagles handed Jessie the loss, courtesy of her signature Hell Bound maneuver, much like Madison has been able to do against a who's who of title challengers including Cheerleader Melissa, Ayumi Kurihara, Mercedes Martinez, and Ayako Hamada. The rivalry between McKay and Matthews has continued, with both tag team battles and a 2 out of 3 falls contest against one another earlier this year.

On September 3rd, 2011, history will be made as not only will the PWWA present its return event, but it will also mark the first time that the SHIMMER Championship will be on the line in a bout held outside of the United States! It was previously announced that Nicole Matthews will make her PWWA debut on September 3rd. PWWA and SHIMMER management have now agreed that, due to the even rivalry between McKay and Matthews in SHIMMER, both wrestlers are worthy of the opportunity to challenge Madison Eagles for the SHIMMER Championship. Thus, the first SHIMMER Title Match not held on American soil will see two of the top young female stars from different parts of the wrestling world both attempt to take the Championship from one of the most dominant women in the industry today in a three-way bout!

The PWWA event will be held at 6:30pm on September 3rd, 2011 at the home of PWA Australia, Liverpool Masonic Centre, Liverpool, NSW. Over 15 female wrestlers will be competing in the largest women’s wrestling event Australia has ever seen. Show DVDs will be available soon after the event for online purchasing.
