Today (September 8th), SHINE Wrestling presented their SHINE 53 event where an eight-woman tournament was held to determine a brand new champion to the vacated SHINE Championship. On top the tournament, the Shine Tag Team Championships were also on the line as the Twisted Sisterz (Thunder Rosa and Holidead) defended their newly won tag team titles against the Cutie Pie Club (Kiera Hogan and Dementia D’Rose).
Below are full results of show, courtesy of Cageside Seats:
