    Holy mother Reby Sky!

    • xxQOXxx

      Yeah she sucks in the ring!

      • No Holds Barred

        I know that lol. The ‘holy mother’ was for her puppies

      • norisclouds

        lol Botchamania…that was one of the worse wrestling matches I’ve ever seen. Who fucks up a snapmare?

        • No Holds Barred

          I cant remember, which episode was she in?? Was that the match (vs a redhead) where the guy in the crowd was like “What?” “What the hell was that?” everytime they fucked up

        • norisclouds

          @NO HOLDS BARRED Yea that’s it. I couldn’t stop laughing. If you’ve been wrestling for over a year and training longer and that’s the best you can do you might want to reconsider your profession. Or get a new trainer or something. Anything.

  • Matthew

    Wow! Looks awesome!
    Is it me or does Reby Sky remind anyone of a blonde Trish Stratus?

    • Poison_Ivory

      Omg YES she does! The facial expression, the fake boobs, just her whole appearance screams Trish. She has the classic 2003 Trish -pose on even.

      • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

        YES…

  • Acid Rain

    I’m excited about this new promotion. New girls, new titles, new feuds, I wonder if they’ll have volumes or just appear on iPPV. Poster looks okay, but Reby Sky’s hair looks like it’s been added on top of her head.. Kinda strange..

    Anyways, excited none the less.

    One more thing, is Santana Garrett a good wrestler? I’ve heard of her before but I’ve never seen her work.

    • Raekon

      She is solid. You can check some of her matches on youtube. :)
      Gails “Eat Defeat” is one of Santanas Signature moves.

      Her finisher is a moonsault which she does while running to the ropes, bounching on them overhead, landing backwards on her feet and moonsaulting the opponent on the second jump. :)

      Great potential there!

      • Poison_Ivory

        Wasn’t Santana the girl who faced Jillian in her 1st or 2nd indie match after WWE?

    • xxQOXxx

      The SHIMMER Titles will be used right now, so no new titles

      • Acid Rain

        If they use the Shimmer titles, would that mean that Saraya Knight and Courtney Rush will also be on the show?

  • http://youtube.com/kristalmelinafan kristalmelinafan

    Reby Sky looks exactly like Trish Stratus wow lmao.

  • Raekon

    Looks great so far! :)
    Gonna check if I’m gonna be able to get the first iPPV so I can see how it goes cause by the talent shown and announced I think it will definately be a good show. :)

  • shameronstar

    Im sure someone like Reby Sky could learn a ton from Sara Del Rey. Also, I think that Santana woman was the female valet for Orlando Jordan when he was doing that bisexual gimmick in TNA. I almost forgot she was a wrestler because she never did anything noteworthy in TNA kind of like other people who stayed temporarily like Peyton Banks, Moose, and Toxine!

    • shameronstar

      Oh, you mentioned Santana in the description! LOL!

  • shameronstar

    Also, what’s wrong with everyone’s faces? They look like they’re swollen because of recovering plastic surgery or something!

    • Raekon

      They got photoshoped too much. :p

      • Acid Rain

        That’s what I said. And to think some people were comparing Reby to Trish Stratus..

  • Dave Muscarella

    Prazak has said there will be DVD’s. Hopefully they don’t take 6 months to come out like SHIMMER DVD’s do. I am really pumped for this promotion. You can’t go wrong with Sara Del Rey.

    I would expect most of the names announced to be the women you see doing the monthly Slammin Ladies custom shoots. Lots of good wrestlers in Florida. Since its iPPV though, no TNA names will be on the shows.

  • Rhawk

    Just wondering if anything else has been mentioned about this series other than there being monthly events and these three women. You know such as the titles, maybe they won’t be new titles despite the new promotion name. I mean since it IS the Sister to SHIMMER, maybe it will only feature SHIMMER title matches, or maybe it does have a new belt or two but also feature the SHIMMER Singles & Tag titles as well.

    Regardless this seems to have high hopes, especially if they bring in names that don’t get reckonized as much, such as Santana, or rising stars like Reby Sky, along with SHIMMER talent as well like Death Ray, Melissa, Canadian NINJAS, etc etc. Fingers crossed that Becky James tries out for this, me being the fan dude I am for her fine ass. ;-)

  • http://www.gailkimsource.com Danni

    Oh rad! Santana is so much like Gail, it scares me! I remember watching a match of hers and she moved EXACTLY like Gail [on the way to the ring, in the ring..everything), dressed in similar attire & used Eat Defeat! xD

    For a second i thought Reby was Trish 0_o

    Crossing my fingers for Su Yung ..Daffney did respond to me asking about her being a possibility for the promotion ….soo .. hopefully!

  • shameronstar

    Maybe, Savannah aka Angela Fong could be in this new promotion:) She had good potential but wwe seems to not like Asians for some reason:(

    • Rhawk

      While this would be a great addition, I really haven’t heard much from Savannah ever since her winning that GBPW Title a year or 2 ago. So I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you. Like Danni said, it be better hoping for Su Yung since she’s more likely to appear.

  • Jhonmarco

    Only care for SDR from the three.

    LOL @ Reby Sky. Don’t know his this girl is getting bookings at all.

    • Mikas

      Looks & Name value.

      She is a playmate, was on Howard Stern, did some TV shows, was the announcer of LLUSA, and is dating Matt Hardy. So she can be considered a relatively big name.

    • norisclouds

      She gets bookings with Matt Hardy. She’s absolutely terrible. For once you and I agree on something.

    • Acid Rain

      This is unrelated but JhonMarco, are you MrCena456v5 on youtube?

    • misschrissi7

      OMG totally agree. She’s an awful wrestler. She only gets bookings because of Matt Hardy.

  • JJ

    Damn good poster!

  • Rhawk

    I also expect Courtney Rush to appear as well, you know considering she is the other half of the SHIMMER Tag team Champs with Sara.

    • Dave Muscarella

      I wouldn’t expect to see Courtney much in SHINE. Simply because SHINE is more about local wrestlers in Florida and won’t be flying in a ton of girls like SHIMMER does. I am sure the budget for this show is pretty small. I think the point here is to showcase lesser known talent, with a mix of local veterans like SDR. Not saying we won’t see Rush or any other SHIMMER regular, but it won’t be a regular thing I’d assume.

      Although, it wouldnt surprise me to see them go all out for the first show to attract viewers for future shows. I just hope the iPPV’s aren’t too expensive. $10 Joule be a good price.

      • Rhawk

        Oh I can understand this, I mean its not like we’ll be seeing the likes of Saraya, Melissa, MsChif, Mercedez, Allison and all them on every show, of course not. But to keep consistancy with its family promotion, I would expect cameos from champions every now and again, and since Sara is one half of the Tag Champs in SHIMMER, I can only assume Courtney will make some appearances as well.
        Also considering she too is a rising star and not more known like most of the women I listed. If anything, I may expect more names from the Sparkle matches than from SHIMMER roster since they usually are less known also.

  • http://twitter.com/rodneyclint rodneyclint

    If I’ve learned anything from watching pro wrestling, it doesn’t matter how good your womens division is, you still want some hotties running around. That’s why Sky might be getting bookings. Even when WWEs division was at it’s peak you still had girls like Torrie, Stacy and Dawn Marie around for your dose of eye candy.

  • Rhawk

    Im not exactly sure why everyone is losing their minds over Reby Sky being on this show. I mean sure she’s dating ‘Matt hardy’ of all people, but cut the girl some slack. Theres a reason Shine chose her to be on their iPPV and it cant be for any bad reasons Im sure.
    Now Im not judging her wrestling ability too much because I have seen very few matches of her, but what I have seen has been decent at best.

  • rhysus

    wwe should pick santana up NOW! reby isn’t as bad as everyone is making her out to be, she’s just a little green still. i wouldn’t be surprised to see her in the wwe one day

    • Acid Rain

      She skipped on a developmental contract last year I believe.

  • bxradimus

    I’m so excited about this.

    I’m not familiar with Sky or Garrett at all. But Sara Del Rey is the best, period. I can’t wait to see all of the SHIMMER girls and girls that aren’t on the roster show up for this show. Hopefully it’s awesome.

  • DarknessRuler

    Loving the graphics!!! lol

  • lbthewrestlingnerd

    Definitely happy to see SDR :)

    I’d like to see Allysin Kay, Buggy Nova, Athena, Jenny Rose, Jessie Brooks, Kimber Lee, Leva Bates, Marti Belle, Melanie Cruise, Mercedes Martinez, Mia Yim, MsChif, Nikki Roxx, Portia Perez, Rachel Summerlyn, Sarita, Sassy Stephanie, Saturyne, Su Yung, Taeler Hendrix, Veda Scott, Winter (as far as US based wrestlers)

    Some Canadian and Mexican wrestlers would be nice too

    • lbthewrestlingnerd

      I hope that they have their DVDs available for digital download on Click Wrestle, and that they come out fairly soon after the shows

      I think having some free matches on YouTube would be nice too

    • Jhonmarco

      It’s been stated already, but it’ll involve more Florida based residents. I doubt we’ll be getting any people from Canada or Mexico.

      Maybe one free match, but some free matches? That’d be too much IMO.

      • lbthewrestlingnerd

        Well, I looked online, there’s very few female wrestlers in Florida
        Mercedes, Santana, SDR, Su, Leva, Christina (plus some TNA women). Plus, they’ll most likely use women from Slammin Ladies too, I think many of those women could work for them. They can’t just rely on Florida wrestlers, they’ll have 10 women on the show at most

        I think one per show would be nice…. like have a dark match that you air for free maybe

        • Jhonmarco

          This is the start show anyway, doesn’t need to have a roster the size of Shimmer. We shouldn’t be expecting Hamada or Leon appearing.

          I agree one would be fine.

        • lbthewrestlingnerd

          I think they need at least 20 women. You can’t find that many in Florida (maybe if you added in WWE/FCW/TNA women).

          Yeah, well maybe when Ayako is in Mexico she can stop by :D

        • cutymania

          I think the roster regulars would be those living in or around Florida, as well as any extras who are passing through SlamminLadies at the time. So you could potentially see women from all over.

          I’m liking that they’re using girls who aren’t apart of the SHIMMER/SPARKLE roster, this can be like a pre-screening for future talent on the main Berwyn shows.

        • shimmerwrestling

          There’s a lot more female wrestlers than that living in Florida.

        • Acid Rain

          Just about all wrestlers live in Tampa, but like JhonMarco said, don’t expect 30+ women on the first show.

  • ahlhelm

    Isn’t Mercedes Martinez living in Florida now? Any chance to see Sara vs Mercedes is all right by me.

  • Future-Knockout/Diva

    Eww Reby sky how in heck is she a big name is beyond me *cough cough matt hardy cough*, anyway anyone esle besides her like Rush, mercedes, SDR, mschif, cheerleader melissa all the talented girls that matter.
