SHIMMER has announced that Christina Von Eerie, one of the new breakout stars in the promotion during her debut in April, will be back in October.
Plus, there’s more SHIMMER news in the press release below including details of a DVD sale.
[notice]VON EERIE ADDED TO OCT. 1ST & 2ND TAPINGS!
SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is proud to announce the addition of CHRISTINA VON EERIE to its next set of DVD tapings, just over four weeks away!
California native Christina Von Eerie made her SHIMMER debut earlier this year, and immediately drew the ire of former SHIMMER Champion Sara Del Rey. After being attacked by Del Rey and physically thrown out of the locker room before she could even have her first match, Christina proceeded to go out to the ring and call out Del Rey for a fight.
In the series of matches against Del Rey which followed, as well as a hard hitting contest against SHIMMER original Mercedes Martinez, Von Eerie displayed her toughness and never say die attitude inside the ring.
At the conclusion of her Vol. 40 outing, the Berwyn crowd chanted “Please come back” to the Punk Princess, and she will do just that on October 1st & 2nd!
SHIMMER returns to live action on Saturday & Sunday, October 1st & 2nd, 2011, at the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL, just outside Chicago. Bell time on Saturday, October 1st is 2pm. Bell time on Sunday, October 2nd is 1pm. Volumes 41-44 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed during the course of the weekend, with two full length DVD releases taped each day. The events are suitable for all ages.
Front row seating is already SOLD OUT for both days. General admission seating to the October 1st & 2nd tapings can be purchased at http://shimmerwrestling.blogspot.com/p/events.html using PayPal. General admission is $30 per full day of taping (essentially $15 per DVD worth of live matches). You can also purchase tickets by mail, using money order.

PWWA THIS WEEKEND WITH SHIMMER TITLE MATCH!

On top of that not only do we have women wrestlers from across Australia competing at the Liverpool Masonic Centre in NSW, but also the leading ladies of the New Zealand Wrestling scene. Also former SHIMMER Tag Champion from Canada, Nicole Matthews, and of course one of the top female wrestlers in the world today, SHIMMER and PWWA Champion, Madison Eagles.

SHIMMER Championship Match
Madison Eagles (c) v Jessie McKay v Nicole Matthews
During early 2010, Madison Eagles began her road to eventually unseat MsChif and become the third SHIMMER Champion. At that same time, rising female stars Jessie McKay and Nicole Matthews also began a competitive rivalry with one another in SHIMMER action.
Having followed similar paths in different parts of the world, both young athletes enjoyed success early in their respective careers, with McKay earning the PWWA Championship in Australia while Matthews secured the ECCW SuperGirls Championship in Canada. The two crossed paths with one another in the United States during Jessie’s SHIMMER debut, and then again in a singles bout on SHIMMER Volume 30. On both of those occasions, Nicole scored the pinfall. A singles rematch soon followed, which resulted in McKay getting her hand raised in victory.
Though Matthews was the first of the two to achieve a SHIMMER Championship (the Tag Team Championship with partner Portia Perez as “The Canadian Ninjas”), McKay was the first to work her way into a shot against the SHIMMER Champion, as she took on Madison in the main event of SHIMMER Volume 35. Eagles handed Jessie the loss, courtesy of her signature Hell Bound maneuver, much like Madison has been able to do against a who’s who of title challengers including Cheerleader Melissa, Ayumi Kurihara, Mercedes Martinez, and Ayako Hamada. The rivalry between McKay and Matthews has continued, with both tag team battles and a 2 out of 3 falls contest against one another earlier this year.
On September 3rd, 2011, history will be made as not only will the PWWA present its return event, but it will also mark the first time that the SHIMMER Championship will be on the line in a bout held outside of the United States! It was previously announced that Nicole Matthews will make her PWWA debut on September 3rd. PWWA and SHIMMER management have now agreed that, due to the even rivalry between McKay and Matthews in SHIMMER, both wrestlers are worthy of the opportunity to challenge Madison Eagles for the SHIMMER Championship. Thus, the first SHIMMER Title Match not held on American soil will see two of the top young female stars from different parts of the wrestling world both attempt to take the Championship from one of the most dominant women in the industry today in a three-way bout!
‘Rate Tank’ Kellie Skater v Evie (NZ)
PWWA original and SHIMMER star Kellie Skater made her way to the main event of PWWA’s last Tournament show, and pinned Madison Eagles after a brutal no DQ match, which left her the “Last Woman Standing”. Coming Sept 3rd, Skater will be looking to prove her growing dominance in women’s wrestling by taking on the debuting New Zealander. Evie comes to PWWA from IPW in New Zealand, and is a standout talent in the Kiwi’s Women’s Division. Young, talented, and fast improving, Evie will be sure to put up a strong fight against the Worldly travelled ‘Rate Tank’.
The PWWA event will be held at 6:30pm on September 3rd, 2011 at the home of PWA Australia, Liverpool Masonic Centre, Liverpool, NSW. Over 15 female wrestlers will be competing in the largest women’s wrestling event Australia has ever seen. Show DVDs will be available soon after the event for online purchasing.
