[notice]This week, SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is proud to announce the addition of HIROYO MATSUMOTO, NEVAEH, YUMI OHKA, and HAILEY HATRED to its next set of DVD tapings, just over six weeks away!

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.

Two former SHIMMER Tag Team Title holders in HIROYO MATSUMOTO and NEVAEH return to SHIMMER competition on October 1st & 2nd. After enjoying great success in the tag team ranks earlier this year, Hiroyo has expressed her intention to focus on singles competition on Volumes 41-44. After being absent from Volumes 37-40, Nevaeh, one half of the very first SHIMMER Tag Champs, looks to make her mark once again within the SHIMMER ranks come October.

YUMI OHKA comes to us from the Pro Wrestling WAVE organization in Japan. A ten year veteran of the ring, Ohka got her start in the JD Star promotion in 2001. She is currently aligned with Misaki Ohata as part of the Black Dahlia faction in WAVE. Visit for more on Pro Wrestling WAVE.

After breaking into professional wrestling in the Midwest region of the United States, HAILEY HATRED switched her focus to the women’s wrestling scene in Japan. She relocated there with the goal of achieving great success, and made history in June of 2011 by becoming the first gaijin competitor to win the JWP Openweight Championship. Hailey will return to the United States for a brief trip to participate in Volumes 41 & 42 on Saturday, October 1st (she will be appearing for AIW in Ohio on Sunday, October 2nd). Don’t miss the SHIMMER debut of Hailey Hatred! Tickets are now on sale.

Officially announced thus far for October 1st & 2nd: SHIMMER Champion Madison Eagles, SHIMMER Tag Team Champions Daizee Haze & Tomoka Nakagawa, Sara Del Rey, Cheerleader Melissa, Serena Deeb, MsChif, Mercedes Martinez, Nikki Roxx, “Portuguese Princess” Ariel, Allison Danger, The Canadian Ninjas, Kellie Skater, Kana, Jessie McKay, Leva Bates, Athena, Hiroyo Matsumoto, Nevaeh, Yumi Ohka, and Hailey Hatred (10/1 only). 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. Several SHIMMER talents will be featured on the AAW event, including SHIMMER Champion Madison Eagles, MsChif, and Jessie McKay. Visit to pick up tickets to the September 30th AAW event, to make it three straight days of live wrestling at the Eagles Club!
