FIRST FOUR NAMES ANNOUNCED FOR SHIMMER 58-61!
We're eight weeks away from the return of SHIMMER - WOMEN ATHLETES to live action in the Chicagoland area! SHIMMER 58-61 will take place at the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL on Saturday & Sunday, October 19th & 20th, 2013. Bell time on Saturday, October 19th is 2pm. Bell time on Sunday, October 20th is 1pm. The events are suitable for all ages.
Half of the available tickets for the weekend's events have already been sold. Front row reserved seating is already completely sold out for the entire weekend. General admission tickets are still available, at a cost of $30 per full day of taping (two DVD volumes worth of live matches each day, so essentially $15 per DVD). You may use the PayPal buttons at shimmerwrestling.blogspot.com/p/tickets.html to purchase tickets online. If you need to purchase tickets via money order, send an E-mail to [email protected] for mail order instructions. Due to limited seating in the small venue, we strongly suggest that you purchase tickets in advance if you plan to attend.
The first four competitors for the SHIMMER 58-61 events can now be revealed. Look for more talent to slowly be formally announced for the shows during the remaining eight weeks leading up to the events.
SHIMMER Original Cheerleader Melissa has the distinction of being the only wrestler to compete on all fifty-seven SHIMMER shows thus far. She began her second reign as SHIMMER Champion on April 6th of this year, dethroning Saraya Knight inside a steel cage in the main event of SHIMMER 53, to become the only woman to hold the SHIMMER Championship on two occasions.
SHIMMER Tag Team Champions
KELLIE SKATER & TOMOKA NAKAGAWA
The "Global Green Gangsters" tag team of Kellie Skater & Tomoka Nakagawa, which has enjoyed success in both Japan as welll as the United States, captured the SHIMMER Tag Team Championships from "The Canadian Ninjas" Portia Perez & Nicole Matthews on April 14th of this year. The championship victory for "3G" was Skater's first in SHIMMER competition, and Nakagawa's second (the first being her SHIMMER Tag Team Championship reign with partner Daizee Haze).
Former SHIMMER Champion Madison Eagles made history during 2011 as the first wrestler to defend the title outside of the United States. After an impressive title reign which included successful defenses against Melissa, Ayumi Kurihara, MsChif, Ayako Hamada, Serena Deeb, Hiroyo Matsumoto and others, Eagles was forced onto the sidelines for the duration of 2012 with a severe knee injury. Madison returned to SHIMMER during April of this year and plowed through the competition, appearing to have not lost a step.
