Japanese Star Kana Coming to US for SHIMMER and CHIKARA

SHIMMER and CHIKARA announced this morning that Japanese star, Kana, will be debuting for both companies in October.

Kana will be part of SHIMMER on October 1st and 2nd in Berywn, IL. She will also compete for CHIKARA the following weekend on October 7th and 8th.

Official press below:

[notice]One of the most controversial and talked about female professional wrestlers in Japan is set to compete in the United States for the very first time. Kana, who is currently a regular roster member of both Yoshihiro Tajiri’s SMASH promotion and the Pro-Wrestling WAVE organization, will be a part of live events promoted by both SHIMMER Women Athletes and CHIKARA during the first two weekends of October!

Known for her explosive striking ability and lethal kicks, Kana is prepared to make her mark on American soil against the top female athletes SHIMMER and CHIKARA have to offer. Kana made her professional wrestling debut in June of 2004 as a member of the AtoZ promotion. Among her accomplishments during subsequent years was co-holding the NEO Tag Team Championship with partner Nanae Takahashi during late 2009. Kana is currently part of an ongoing tournament in SMASH to determine their first Women’s Champion.

The SHIMMER events featuring Kana will take place on Saturday & Sunday, October 1st & 2nd at the Berwyn Eagles Club, 6309 26th Street in Berwyn, IL, just outside Chicago. Volumes 41-44 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed during the course of that weekend.
