Ayumi Kurihara Announced for SHIMMER Tapings in October

SHIMMER has announced the addition of Ayumi Kurihara to their DVD tapings taking place in Berwyn, IL on October 1st and 2nd.

Check out their press release below:

[notice]SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is proud to announce the addition of AYUMI KURIHARA to its next set of DVD tapings, just over four weeks away!

One of the Joshi 4 Hope athletes from Japan, Ayumi Kurihara made an immediate impression within the SHIMMER ranks upon her arrival in early 2010. Ayumi emerged victorious in her debut contest against rival Tomoka Nakagawa, and proceeded to rack up a series of key victories to work her way into a title shot against Madison Eagles in the main event of Volume 34. Kurihara has been able to hand losses to several SHIMMER originals, including Nikki Roxx, Sara Del Rey, Daizee Haze, and Cheerleader Melissa during her SHIMMER tenure thus far, making her a major player to keep your eyes on heading into the future.

At the last set of SHIMMER tapings, Ayumi’s contest against Ayako Hamada was the only match advertised in advance, and it managed to sell out the Berwyn Eagles Club for the taping that day. Many fans pointed to Kurihara vs. Hamada in the main event of Volume 38 as their favorite match of the weekend. Both joshi athletes gave those in attendance the rare opportunity to see international stars collide live and in person.

Though she was unable to secure the SHIMMER Championship during her first title opportunity, Ayumi is a championship caliber athlete who is determined to achieve success everywhere she goes throughout the world. The upcoming tapings will mark Kurihara’s fourth trip to the United States to compete for SHIMMER!

SHIMMER 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 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. For mail order instructions, E-mail [email protected]. We will also have tickets available during intermission of this Saturday’s (8/20) AAW event at the Eagles Club for those who would like to pick them up in person.

Look for more talent to be announced during the coming weeks. Over 25 of the top female professional wrestlers from around the world will gather in Berwyn for Volumes 41-44!

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 to pick up tickets to the September 30th AAW event, to make it three straight days of live wrestling at the Eagles Club!
