SHIMMER has announced that it is breaking away from its usual non-touring schedule to put on a show as part of WrestleMania weekend in the New York/New Jersey area.
SHIMMER, along with four other top independent promotions — CHIKARA, CZW, Dragon Gate USA and EVOLVE — will present the first annual WrestleCon from April 5th to April 7th in New Jersey.
WrestleCon will emanate from the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ.
SHIMMER will tape Volume 53 as part of the events on April 6th at 12pm ET.
Promoter Dave Prazak says: “Though SHIMMER has been primarily a non-touring, Chicago based DVD series during our first seven years of operation, we are pleased to make a rare exception to that rule come April in order to be a part of the WrestleCon festivities. SHIMMER’s participation in that weekend’s events will give the dedicated wrestling fans who will be in area a fantastic opportunity to witness SHIMMER 53 live and in person. We are excited to join the other top wrestling companies which will be a part of WrestleCon to provide the fans with something different that weekend, a live all female card featuring the very best women athletes in professional wrestling today, SHIMMER style!”
SHIMMER has currently released 48 volumes of its DVD series and will add four more volumes, Volumes 49 through 52, this October in its regular home of Berwyn, Illinois.
Volume 53 will mark SHIMMER’s first live event of 2013.
The company has previously filmed almost exclusively in Berwyn, sans a rare taping in Florida for Volume 14.
