Allysin Kay will defend her newly won AIW Women’s Championship against “Girl Dynamite” Jennifer Blake in Cleveland, Ohio on May 12th for AIW.

Blake has been on a roll since returning from Mexico, and has been taking bookings left, right and centre. She followed up a victory over Jodi D’Milo on April 14 for WrestleStock with another over Kimber Lee for AIW’s “Girls Night Out 6” on April 15.

In an interview with SLAM! Sports, Jennifer says she’d love to return to SHIMMER Women Athletes.

“I’d love to do SHIMMER again. I always had fun working the SHIMMER shows and working the girls from North America. It’s always easier to put a match together with someone who speaks the same language as you. That’s always a treat, coming home and wrestling the girls.”

Blake also made mention that she’d like to make a few more trips overseas before she retires.

“I want to do a little bit more traveling, I want to see a little bit more of the world before I hang up my boots. I’d love to make it over to Japan. I’d love to make another trip to Scotland, and maybe check out Europe.”
