She got some great matches in. I liked that she even got a clean win on Kong.


But none of her title reign matches were as good as the ones in her Cheerleader Melissa feud.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Yep agreed. Most of MsChifs title matches were disappointing and i really enjoy Portia Perez as a heel.

She also had the misfortune of having the title bouts right after awesome matches in multiple volumes.


In other words, having matches after Del Rey, Melissa, Stock, Hamada, or the Joshi wrestlers.

When it comes to favorite wrestlers...

Past - Tiana Ringer. For some reason, I really liked watching "Smurfette" wrestle. She had a certain type of zaniness that, if she was in the industry longer, probably would have gotten her more mainstream jobs, IMO. Namely in TNA. Plus, I liked that she was able to incorporate her ballerina and martial art skills into her move set. I just wish I got to see it evolve.

It really sucks that she left the industry, but... Honestly, I just hope she's happy were she is now.


Present - This is a really difficult question. There's a slew of awesome talent in the promotion right now. Melissa has been my consistent favorite, but Hamada hasn't had a match less than three stars yet. So again, really difficult, but...

Ayako Hamada.


Future - I see plenty of potential. Athena, Matthews, McKay, the Rate Tank, etc... Right now though? Jesse McKay. I think in a few years she'll be the future of women's wrestling much like Del Rey currently personafies it (I don't count the Divas or KOs).


Favorite not in Shimmer? Look at the sig. Taeler Hendrix.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

My favourite Shimmer Girls are the Aussies, The Canadian Ninjas and Cheerleader Melissa.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Awesome idea to start this thread Shirley, I'd been thinking about doing it myself but only got into SHIMMER fairly recently, starting with vol.29 (I've since got 25-28 although I haven't watched all of them yet and also seen 9 and 14) so my knowledge is still a bit limited. I want to get more but price is a factor and I prefer to support small promotions rather than downloading, something I have no qualms about with WWE and TNA which never provide value for money.

Anyway, of the volumes I haven't seen, which would you recommend? I've seen you say 19 is one of your favourites, what about some of the others?

I'm only fairly new to SHIMMER myself but, since I realised it was awesome, I've tried to soak up as much knowledge as possible. 18 is great and I just watched 26 and 27 and they both have classic matches on them. Good shows tend to come along in twos, I think. Dunno what other people recommend?

The whole piracy thing is a big debate. I think piracy can actually help to spread the word freely and widely and then spawn more new fans, who are willing to support the company financially. It's difficult to say that with a promotion like SHIMMER though, who really are running hand-to-mouth, show-to-show. When you buy a SHIMMER DVD you're literally paying for one of the girls to get a taxi from her hotel to the show and back.

I tend to just buy what I feel is my own fair share of wrestling stuff (as a donation to whatever company) and then watch stuff, that I'm not sure is worthy of be bought, for free. In fact, I buy more than my own fair share. So I don't feel too guilty about pirating like a bastard.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Any advise on where to start for Shimmer, which show(s) to watch first? They seem to have a whole lot of releases out there. Or should I just go straight for the newest one (#32)?

I'd start a little earlier, say around 28 or 29 which is where I came aboard. Right now that's easy because buster312 has just provided links for all the dvds so far released. Just go the the indy section in wrestling multi media. Ideally you'd pay for as much as possible but I see nothing wrong with getting a free sample.

I would say 28 is an ideal place to start it gets you up-to-date with who the main stars are at present and the Hamada vs Del Rey match is probably the best in Shimmer history.

Completely forgot about that epic match. Had a big part in making me get into SHIMMER religiously.
