Official press release below:
[notice]This week, SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is proud to announce the addition of SARAYA KNIGHT and MIA YIM to its next set of DVD tapings, just 25 days away!
Earlier this year, the mother and daughter “Knight Dynasty” duo of Sweet Saraya and Britani Knight made their American pro wrestling debuts as new additions to the SHIMMER roster. After being introduced to the Berwyn crowd by Rebecca Knox, the Knights quickly became one of the most talked about participants in the Vols. 37-40 weekend, due in large part to the unforgettably intimidating presence of 20 year ring veteran Saraya Knight.
Striking fear in not only her opponents, but also every other human being in the building, Saraya displayed to everyone at SHIMMER exactly why she has been such a dominant force throughout Europe for over two decades. On October 1st & 2nd, Saraya will bring the viciousness to SHIMMER once again. Consider this fair warning.
Mia Yim has spent a great deal of her time the past several months both training and wrestling in Japan for the REINA promotion. She has had the opportunity to step in the ring against some of the very best women in the industry during her time there, and will bring that added experience back to SHIMMER competition on October 1st & 2nd.
Earlier this year, Yim competed as part of the SHIMMER tag team division, alongside partner Jamilia Craft. On Vols. 41-44, Mia will test her skills within the SHIMMER singles ranks.
SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES 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.

Over half of the tickets for these events have already been sold. Since seating at the Eagles Club is very limited, we do suggest securing your tickets in advance if you wish to attend.
In addition to the SHIMMER events that Saturday & Sunday, our friends at AAW will present a card at the Berwyn Eagles Club on that Friday evening, September 30th. A six woman tag team match featuring SHIMMER talent will be on the AAW event, as MsChif & Jessie McKay & Nevaeh will face Madison Eagles & Mena Libra & Sassy Stephie. Visit http://www.aawrestling.com/ to pick up tickets to the September 30th AAW event, to make it three straight days of live wrestling at the Eagles Club!
