SHINE returns to the Orpheum in Ybor City this Friday for SHINE 21, where arguably the most bitter and violent feud in the promotion’s history will reach its scintillating denouement.
It’s been almost a year since the seeds of Jessicka Havok and Allysin Kay‘s epic rivalry were first planted all the way back at SHINE 13 last September, and since then the former best friends have wrought chaos every time their paths have crossed. After a host of no-contests, double countouts and ringside interferences a clear victor is still undecided – but that looks set to change come Friday when the pair face off in a Dog Collar and Chain Match, with Kay’s Valkyrie cohorts banned from ringside.
The SHINE Championship will also be defended on the show, with reigning champion Ivelisse set to put her title on the line whoever wins a Four Corners Survival Match earlier on the card – either Amazing Kong, Leah Von Dutch, Nevaeh or the reinvented Su Yung.
At SHINE 20 in June the team of Legendary (Brandi Wine and Malia Hosaka) shocked the world by defeating Mia Yim and Leva Bates to become the new SHINE Tag Team Champions. On Friday, the Lucha Sisters will have the opportunity to win the titles back at the first attempt, while Legendary will be out to prove that they have plenty of life in them yet, and that their victory was more than just a fluke.
Two more tag team matches are scheduled to happen, with Kimber Lee and Cherry Bomb facing the S-N-S Express (Sassy Stephie and Jessie Belle), and the Daffney-led Buddy System (Solo Darling and Heidi Lovelace) wrestling Marti Belle and Jayme Jameson. Elsewhere on the card, Taylor Made of Valkyrie will go up against La Rosa Negra in singles action, while Thunderkitty goes one-on-one with Justine Silver.
SHINE 21 takes place at the Orpheum in Ybor City, Florida at 9pm Eastern (2am GMT) and will be live on iPPV. To order the event, visit WWNLine.com.
If you can’t watch it live, Diva Dirt will be presenting live coverage of the show.
