Yumi Ohka is the fifth – and potentially final – joshi talent added to SHIMMER Women Athletes’ set of tapings on October 27 and 28 in Berwyn, IL.
She joins previously announced fellow Japanese stars Kana, Hiroyo Matsumoto, Tomoka Nakagawa and debutante Ryo Mizunami.
Ohka, Matsumoto and Nakagawa all missed the previous tapings in March for varying reasons. Ray and Leon instead made their debuts.
The SHIMMER office wrote on their official forums that there could still be one more joshi talent added to the tapings but that they are awaiting confirmation.
For now, check out the press release regarding Ohka’s return to America below:
[notice]Last year, Yumi Ohka made her SHIMMER debut in tremendous fashion, against inaugural SHIMMER Champion Sara Del Rey on SHIMMER 41. The match served as an excellent example of why Ohka is one of the top stars in her home promotion, Pro-Wrestling WAVE. Yumi also battled another SHIMMER vet in Serena Deeb, as well as some of the younger, rising stars on the SHIMMER roster, including Courtney Rush and Mia Yim. During those bouts, Ohka put her arsenal of kicks and suplexes on display for the Berwyn fans. In less than six weeks, Yumi joins the Joshi4Hope crew once again for her second American visit.[/notice]
