Fans attending the SHIMMER Women Athletes and NCW Femmes Fatales’ tapings in late October/early November are in for a treat – joshi star Ryo Mizunami has just been announced as a debutante for both promotions.
SHIMMER says of Mizunami:
[notice]”Ryo Mizunami comes to us from the Pro-Wrestling WAVE promotion in Japan, through the assistance of the Joshi 4 Hope office. Mizunami made her wrestling debut in 2004 for GAEA, but would later get the bulk of her early experience under the guidance of Meiko Satomura at SENDAI Girls’ Pro-Wrestling beginning in 2007. Known for her strength, Mizunami has an array of suplexes in her arsenal, including a very effective Uranage. Not only will Mizunami be a part of SHIMMER 49-52 in Berwyn, but she will also participate in NCW Femmes Fatales X on November 3rd in Montreal to complete her first tour of North America.”[/notice]
Indeed – NCW Femmes Fatales has announced her match for their tenth show, a singles match vs. Courtney Rush.
Mizunami joins fellow joshi star Hiroyo Matsumoto as the only other Japanese talent announced for both companies’ events in October/November so far.
NCW has announced that Hiroyo will take on LuFisto in a rematch from their bout on SHIMMER Volume 31, and that the “Pink Flash” Kira faces a great challenge when she takes on Mercedes Martinez. As NCW are following a format similar to SHIMMER in November, they will be taping two DVDs worth of action and these matches are in addition to the already announced LuFisto vs. Martinez Steel Cage Match.
They have also announced that their next events will take place on March 30 2013, and July 6 2013.
Meanwhile, SHIMMER have confirmed the appearance of Leva Bates for their tapings of volumes 49-52 on October 27 and 28. She joins previously announced competitors such as SHIMMER Champion Sweet Saraya, SHIMMER Tag Team Champions “The Canadian NINJAS” Nicole Matthews and Portia Perez, Cheerleader Melissa, MsChif, Mercedes Martinez, Hiroyo Matsumoto and Allison Danger.
