Re: Official Indy Womens Discussion Thread

So.. what would be a good starting point for getting into stuff like SHIMMER and all that jazz? What DVDs would you recommend?

Re: Official Indy Womens Discussion Thread

^^^^
I have 2, vol 28 and 35. I preferred 35 but 28 wasn't bad or anything.

Rate Tank!!! The thing I love about Shimmer besides the wrestling is the entertaining characters. Kellie Skater, Madison Eagles, MsChif, Cat Power, the Canadian Ninjas, etc.

Kellie Skater makes squash matches so much fun. I enjoy her overconfidence and the fact that she's practically indestructible.

Anyway I'd say start with 35. Or both 35 and 28 like I did. One of the most entertaining promotions besides Chikara(though I haven't seen Chikara lately). Hmmm...

edit: Though I'm not the best person to speak about Shimmer since I've only seen 2 volumes. BUT! What I did see in only 2 volumes I liked...ALOT!


You know you remember this.

35 and 28 are pretty much ideal.

See if you can find a download for the Hamada-Del Rey match from 28. Then, if you like what you see, get the full 35 DVD.

EDIT: Also, type 'Kana SMASH' into Youtube.


THE CHAMP IS HERE

Yes, yes, YES. Do it NOW. Kana is amazing, as is Ayumi Kurihara, Hiroyo Matsumoto and Yumi Ohka. I seriously can't wait for 41 to come out, as I unfortunately wasn't able to go to those tapings, although I plan on going to the next ones in March.


^This woman is awesome.

I'd say it depends on who you enjoy. The more recent shows do have a stronger influx of talent, imo, but about all the shows are equal in entertainment. Try from Volume 20 - on and see you dig it. Then work your way back.

yes, listen to them ^. Kana is a must. Check her out.

New SHIMMER cover is pretty boss I have to say. Melissa on the back =

Re: Official Indy Womens Discussion Thread

I own Vol. 1-36 haha

The newest Ringbelles podcast is out. It has Mercedes Martinez, Hailey Hatred, Courtney Rush, LuFisto, Saraya Knight & Madison Eagles

Madison says during her bit she may have to retire if she doesn't recover from her knee injury. Hope she recovers because i'd hate to never see her wrestle in Shimmer again.

I have all 40. Also, I hope for the best for Madison Eagles; I do not want to see her give up wrestling.
