My list would be

Sara Del Rey vs Mercedes Martinez - Volume 1 a fantastic match that really showed what Shimmer would go on to become

MsChif vs Cheerleader Melissa (Falls Count Anywhere) - Volume 4 probably the most brutal match in Shimmer history from probably its best feud

Daizee Haze vs Rebecca Knox (2/3 Falls) - Volume 5 a great technical match they didn't even hit the ropes until 10 minutes in and K-Knox rules

Sara Del Rey vs Sarah Stock - Volume 12 the best match in the title tournament to crown the first champion

Sara Del Rey vs MsChif - Volume 18 not the best match on the list but the reactions when MsChif wins the belt are great the whole crowd is in shock

Sara Del Rey vs Serena Deeb - Volume 22 probably Deeb's best Shimmer match so far and Del Rey is great in the heel role

Sara Del Rey vs Maddison Eagles - Volume 23 the best the current champ has looked Del Rey really brings out the best in her

Wesna vs Cheerleader Melissa (KO or Submission) - Volume 26 a great match as the two always have with some brutal strikes although their 40min Chickfight 9 match is probably better

Cheerleader Melissa vs Nicole Matthews - Volume 27 one of the matches (along with her earlier 2 with Daizee Haze) that proves Nicole has all the tools to be a single star

Ayako Hamada vs Sara Del Rey - Volume 28 quite simply the best match in Shimmer history

That would be my top ten I was trying to get a MsChif title defence in their but I did find a lot of them quite underwhelming and a lot of times she was outshone by other matches on the card.

I'm sure there's a few matches I'm forgetting and there's plenty that I haven't seen yet but this list is a pretty good start. In no particular order:

Melissa vs. Matthews - 27
Lacey vs. Serena - 9
Kong vs. MsChif - 9
Melissa vs. Hamada - 32
Del Rey vs. Hamada - 28

Hamada vs. Martinez - 27
Melissa vs. Wesna - 26
Martinez vs. Melissa - 19
Melissa vs. Stock - 18

Del Rey vs. Melissa - 9
Kong vs. Melissa - 16
Del Rey vs. Stock - 16
Ninjas vs. Ashley/Neveah - 26 (historical significance)
Homewreckers vs. Haze/Chif/Jezebel - 16 (if you think that, because you're a smark, heels can't make you rage anymore...)

16 is a great show, come to think of it.

All the cards are here (if you don't mind SPOILERZ!): en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shimmer_Volumes

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Speaking of the Homewreckers... It's a shame that two out of three of them are done with in-ring action. And the other is... Well, I honestly forgot where Rain is, wrestling promotion wise. (I could of sworn she was still in WSU, but I'm probably wrong).

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Did you guys hear about Allison Danger making ANOTHER female promotion in the East Coast?

Actually, she's reviving a defunct promotion with some help from World-1.


I wonder how this promotion will differentiate itself with SHIMMER and WSU.

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.
Way to justify piracy to yourself. Hahahaha. That's like saying, well I shop at Walmart all the time, but I'm not sure about this new Walmart brand toothpaste, I think I'll just steal it, because I buy Crest here all the time anyhow.

Piracy help spread the word? If someone is looking for a pirate copy, they're already at least somewhat familiar with the promotion or event and can research further if they want. How are you going to spread the word through piracy? Are you going to hold a screening of the pirate copy in your home theater further breaking infringement and exhibition laws to gain new interest in your favorite company?

I think the middle-ground is the live play-by-play of the PPV. They're explaining, in great detail on the better websites, what is being shown on the PPV, but you are not pirating by reading a description.

Now this is where 'better websites' needs to be highlighted. There are some play-by-play websites with obvious criticisms and opinions. I dislike these types. I like just straight play-by-play, descriptive, but without judging or commentary. I can make up my own mind if the description of events is good enough.

Then based on the description you can choose to buy the DVD when it comes out. It's like reading a detailed Amazon.com review of a DVD, or blu-ray.com review. You're not pirating there either but you can get the entire gist of what is being sold. Then you buy the goods based on the review, and with live play-by-play you don't have to wait for the DVD to come out even. You could even still order the PPV on replay if you wanted to, plus if capable, you could see it in HD glory. Yes, piracy is a big debate still, but if you stay on the legal side of things, I've shown that you can still have a choice on what you're buying.

Oh yeah, and GO SHIMMER!

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

Out of the current talent used on SPARKLE, Mia Yim NEEDS to debut on the main SHIMMER shows ASAP. She's one of the best young prospects in US women's wrestling today. Her kicks are awesome and I think she can only grow in the future. Same for Athena.

Looking at the past, I think one of the biggest losses early on was Rebecca Knox. Her 2/3 falls match against Daizee Haze still remains a highlight of SHIMMER. That injury must have been really bad for her not to return. She could have played a significant role if she was still active.

Oh and Melissa must win the title, it's way overdue.

Re: Official SHIMMER Discussion Thread

interesting take from the previous poster even though the comparisons of Shimmer and Walmart are completely ridiculous but whatever. I wouldn't own 5 Shimmer DVDs if i hadn't first tried the company by downloading a show. Same goes for the 145 ROH DVDs i now own. Wouldn't have bought any of them if i didn't first try them through the downloading a show. To me its basically a try before you buy. Is it illegal, YES but companies like ROH wouldn't have received the hundreds of dollars i spend with them each year if i hadn't first downloaded a show of theres.
