San Antonio has the upper hand now, with a snapmare and some hard kicks to the back for two. San Antonio continues her offense with a swinging neckbreaker for another two, and locks in a lethal-looking Mexican Surfboard. Yim escapes but not for long, as San Antonio incapacitates Yim on the turnbuckle. The pair then trade strikes in the centre of the ring, and Yim gets the advantage with a mule kick and a glancing roundhouse kick to San Antonio’s head. Yim goes up top but San Antonio reaches her in time and hits a high powerbomb for two. Torture rack from San Antonio now, but Yim wriggles out and lands a succession of German suplexes.

02:24 AM: Another great match. Daffney’s given up on her heels and is barefoot in the ring to announce the next match. She’s also on commentary. Fantastic banter!
Up next is Kimber Lee, making her SHINE debut against the veteran Nikki Roxx.
Kimber Lee vs Nikki Roxx:
Kimber Lee gets the first offense in with some armdrags. Lee goes for a bodyslam but Roxx doesn’t budge and hits some armdrags and a bodyslam of her own.

02:55 AM: Rain (not dressed to wrestle, given her injury at SHINE 5) comes out as Made In Sin head backstage. Daffney enters the ring to interview her. Rain cuts a standard heelish promo airing her grievances about SHINE management and her position in the promotion…and, erm, not much else. Not really sure what that was about.
The next match is between former WWE developmental talent Ivelisse and Su Yung.
Ivelisse vs Su Yung:
We lock up, and Ivelisse gets the upper hand early on, grounding Su Yung. Su Yung gets incensed when Ivelisse spanks her, and retaliates driving Ivelisse into the turnbuckles, grounding her and spanking her herself.

Ivelisse trips over Yung, and Yung capitalises, getting a two count. Yung goes for a kick but Ivelisse reverses with a pinning combination for two, then Yung hits a pin of her own, for two again. Ivelisse then locks in a guillotine, then turns it into a DDT for the win.
03:12 AM: Another solid performance. Matt Hardy is shown at ringside, as up next we have his ladyfriend Reby Sky in a rematch against Jessicka Havok. Last time these two met, Havok got the victory in comprehensive fashion. Can Reby get retribution? My prediction is, to be frank, no.
Damn, Jessicka Havok is cool.
Jessicka Havok vs Reby Sky:
Reby Sky enters the ring and lunges straight for Havok, beating her down. The fight goes to the outside, with Sky losing the advantage upon missing a clothesline and hitting the ringpost. Havok works the bruised arm, and rolls Sky back into the ring, continuing working her arm, wrapping it around the ring ropes. Sky almost gets some offense in, but Havok seems just too much for her, taking out Sky with a blistering kick to the head for two. Havok now applying a cross armbreaker, but Sky reverses it into a pin attempt. Havok kicks out at two. Havok takes control again, going back to the arm. Great isolation technique from Havok, who hits a succession of backbreakers on Sky, before Sky counters with a hurricanrana, but before she can get any more momentum Havok lands a huge boot to Sky’s face. Sky manages to pick herself up and get a few strikes in, followed by a crossbody, which takes Havok off her feet. She goes up top and hits a double axehandle, but Havok blocks the second attempt, only for Sky to counter that with a tornado DDT for two. Sky goes for a Twist of Fate but Havok escapes. Sky dodges Havok’s baseball slide and lands a plancha to the outside. Nice! Back in the ring, Sky attempts a pin but Havok kicks out at two. Sky goes up top again, but Havok is having none of it, and hits a fallaway slam from the second rope. Havok works Sky’s arms even more now, but Sky reaches the ropes, only for Havok to drag her away and keep applying the Rings of Saturn. This continues for a while, but Matt Hardy throws in the towel and the match is over.
Winner: Jessicka Havok
Havok and Hardy stare each other down, then Havok exits while Hardy tends to Sky. Talk about a one-sided match, but credit to Sky for her effort.
03:31 AM: The excellent video package hyping Leva Bates and Kimberly’s rematch is on. Their match is next!
Leva Bates vs Kimberly:
Bates (is she dressed as Daffney?) comes out and attacks Kimberly from behind. She unleashes a flurry of offense on Kimberly. Flying shoulder tackle from Bates for a two-count. More strikes from Kimberly, who has yet to achieve any offense yet. Reverse DDT from Leva for two, then Kimberly finally gains control with a spinebuster, then chokes Leva with her t-shirt. Kimberly gets Leva into the tree of woe, but Leva escapes, attempts a bulldog, Kimberly dodges and hits a clothesline. Kimberly goes for a cloverleaf but Leva reverses with a small package for two. Some hard chops and forearms from Leva in the turnbuckle, then a dragon sleeper on the ropes. Kimberly escapes and hits a dropkick, and the match goes to the outside. Kimberly throws Leva against the ringpost, and the two brawl outside the ring for a little, Leva Irish whipping Kimberly into the wall. Leva does a run-up, but Kimberly reverses into a spinebuster. Leva then counters Kimberly and the match returns to the ring. Kimberly goes for the cloverleaf again, but Leva reverses, takes her down with a drop-toe hold. but Kimberly dodges the double knee and hits a Samoan drop, then picks Leva up before the three-count could be made! Leva lands a spear, but Kimberly dodges the superkick and locks in the cloverleaf. Leva has no choice but to tap.
Kimberly can’t believe it. She goes a bit crazy, hugging everyone, before making her way backstage as an angry Leva Bates tries to chase her out. She catches her and they brawl all the way to the back.
03:51 AM: Main event time, as Mercedes Martinez makes her way out for her match with Amazing Kong. This should be awesome.
Mercedes Martinez vs Amazing Kong:
Martinez gets out of the ring to gather herself. We begin with a battle of forearm shots, before Kong lands a huge clothesline to take control. A hard chop from Kong to Martinez’s chest, then a side headlock, but Martinez pushes her against the ropes only for Kong to respond with a shoulder block. Kong grounds Martinez, working her legs, but Martinez counters with her feet and goes for a pin. Only a one count. Martinez lands some more strikes, but Kong replies with a headbutt. Kong toys with Martinez for a bit, applying a camel clutch, then a bodyscissors with a rear naked choke. Martinez is being utterly dominated here. Kong whips Martinez into the turnbuckle and charges into her, then goes for a running senton splash but Martinez rolls out of the way. Kong regains control soon enough, with a big clothesline getting two. Martinez responds with a barrage of forearm strikes, then a big boot. Martinez goes high, and hits a missile dropkick, taking down Kong, but only getting a two-count. Martinez sets up for the fisherman buster, but Kong reverses and hits a nodawa, then goes for a splash from the top rope but Martinez rolls away again. Back in control, Kong goes up and lands the splash successfully, but Martinez kicks out! Kong attempts a powerbomb, but Martinez reverses it brilliantly into a facebuster. The referee begins the double count. Both get up at nine! Martinez goes for the fisherman buster, but Kong counters with a spinning backfist, knocking out Martinez. As Kong goes to hit a fisherman buster of her own, Rain comes out and distracts the referee, then April Hunter takes out Kong! Martinez gets the pinfall for the victory, and Made In Sin pounce on the helpless Kong.
Winner: Mercedes Martinez
Well, that was unexpected. MsChif comes out to Kong’s aid, but Made In Sin take her out too. Out comes a backup referee, but Allysin Kay superkicks him, knocking him out! More members of the SHINE roster come out to help, but Made In Sin are clearing house. This is chaos! Ivelisse enters and joins the group in the ring, and Rain announces that they are “Valkyrie”. That explains the weird cryptic video that was released by SHINE the other day. It looks like a new stable is born! The five members celebrate and pose in the ring, while the Valkyrie logo flashes up on the screen.
Ladies and gentlemen, thanks for joining me for our live coverage of SHINE 6! Check back tomorrow for a full review, but until then, I’m off to bed! Goodnight all!
