SHIMMER Volume 7 – October 22, 2006


Here we go with another great SHIMMER show, tonight we have the debut of Nattie Neidhart, aka Natalya, and LuFisto. They will be facing Sara Del Rey & Mercedes Martinez respectively in singles matches, should be some great stuff.

We open the show with Daizee Haze challenging Rebecca Knox to a sixty minute Iron Man Match, and we’re informed Rebecca is injured and will not be wrestling tonight. The injury took place in Germany on September 26th and sadly wound up being a career ending injury. Rebecca wrestled only one match after the injury on February 9, 2008 and announced her retirement. Sad way to end what was looking like a promising career; I was really enjoying her matches in SHIMMER. With that bit of sad news we go to ringside for our opening contest.

1. Tiana Ringer v Lorelei Lee. We haven’t seen Tiana since Volume 4, and she looks great tonight in white with pigtails! Lorelei hasn’t had the best of luck in SHIMMER, as she’s had only one win and three loses, as has Tiana, so they’re very evenly matched. The bell rings and Dave welcomes us to SHIMMER, and they lock up, Lorelei with a go behind into a hammerlock, Tiana reverses into an armbar. Lorelei counters to an armbar of her own and Tiana rolls through to her own armbar and a fireman’s carry takes over Lorelei. Lorelei hooks the legs and comes off the ropes; she ducks under Tiana’s clothesline and nails a crucifix for a near fall. Both back up and Lorelei cradles her for another near fall, a drop toe hold into the Oklahoma roll for another near fall. Tiana whips her in and nails a big boot then punches Lorelei before dropping an elbow. Tiana stomps Lorelei and stands over Lorelei before dropping another big elbow for a near fall of her own. Tiana pulls her up by the hair and Lorelei fights back breaking her grip, but Tiana tosses her in the corner and nails a huge chop to the chest. Tiana sends Lorelei to the opposite corner and stomps Lorelei down. Tiana pulls her out of the corner and stands on her throat while posing. Tiana applies a rear chinlock on Lee, but Lorelei elbows her way out, however Tiana pulls her down by the hair and chokes Lorelei. Tiana pulls her up again and chops, but Lorelei ducks and fires back with chops of her own and send Tiana in. Tiana reverses and Lorelei ducks under the spinkick and comes back with a handspring crossbody for a near fall. Lorelei hits a series of clotheslines and goes for a monkey flip, but Tiana blocks and sets Lorelei on her shoulders. Tiana hits the South Palm Beach Driver, a fireman’s carry into a spinebuster for the win. 6/10 a very competitive match between two young up and comers, very good start for the evening. We get comments from Daizee Haze who says things change as she challenges Cheerleader Melissa tonight for the main event.

2. Cindy Rogers v Portuguese Princess Ariel. Cindy is currently at 2-4 here in SHIMMER and still looking for that big victory, while Ariel is at 1-3 and needs a big victory as well. This should be an exciting match between two fan favorites. The ref calls for the bell and they shake hands before locking up. Ariel into an armbar and Cindy counters to one of her own into the side headlock. Ariel elbows her way out to a hammerlock then the side headlock, but now Cindy counters to a front facelock. Ariel sweeps the foot out and works the knee of Cindy, Cindy uses the headscissor to take Ariel over and applies an inverted figure four on Ariel, very cool looking. Ariel makes the ropes and we get a clean break as Cindy allows Ariel to get up, nice sportsmanship. Another tie up and Ariel to a top wristlock, but Cindy powers out and presses Ariel down, but now Ariel powers out, impressive. Ariel back to the armbar and Cindy reverses and ties up the other arm as well, but Ariel headbutts her way out. Cindy calls for the test of strength, but first dueling chants, as they lock up and Cindy rolls through to a front headlock, but Ariel kicks out and sends Cindy in, Cindy reverses and goes for the hiptoss, but Ariel reverses. Ariel with an armdrag followed by a dropkick for a quick near fall. Ariel pulls her up and scoops her for a slam, but Cindy goes down the back and nails a back elbow followed by a lariat. Cindy snaps off a perfect vertical Suplex for a near fall of her own. Cindy snapmares Ariel over and hits the running jump snap, shades of Curt Hennig. Ariel starts to fight back and snapmares Cindy and nails a low dropkick to the face of Cindy. Ariel rams Cindy’s head into the buckle then chops her in the corner. Cindy tossed out of the corner by the hair, Ariel being very heel like tonight. Ariel sets Cindy in the corner but misses the chop and Cindy fires back and tosses her out of the corner for a near fall, as Ariel grabs the bottom rope. Both ladies firing on each other and Cindy shot in and both women take each down by the hair, and both are down and the ref starts the count. Ariel up first, followed by Cindy and we have a slugfest, Cindy hits a face breaker to the knee for two. Cindy tries a pin again and has a handful of tights and the ref refuses to count. This allows Ariel to hit a Northern Lights Suplex for a two count of her own now. Ariel sent in the ropes and Cindy with a boot followed by the facebuster, ala X-Pac, getting a near fall. Cindy sends her in again and Ariel holds the arm and nails the Dariel, an armtrap cutter, for the victory! 6.25/10 another good match between two young talents, and it seems a heel turn is in the works, but for which one? Ariel helps Cindy up and hugs her before offering the handshake, but Cindy rolls out of the ring leaving Ariel confused. Now we get comments from Lacey who talks about Nikki Roxx being a nobody and that she’ll take Roxx’s open challenge for tonight.

3. Lexie Fyfe & Malia Hosaka v Serena Deeb & Portia Perez. Lexie and Malia, calling themselves the Experience, have been on a tear ever since forming this team. Lexie’s 5-1 and Malia is 3-1 so far, however as a team they are 3-0 so far, which means it could be a rough night for the competition. What a team they’re facing as we have Serena Deeb, 1-1, who’s an amazing athlete and one of the hottest young ladies in wrestling, Portia Perez, who’s technically making her debut. She lost to Haze at Volume 5 but that was a dark match, this is the first actual match for her. The Experience not allowing their younger opponents in the ring till the ref holds them back, and Portia and Serena enter cautiously. Lexie slaps the ring announcer for announcing their weight wrong, and the crowd chants one more time. The bell rings and Serena starts with Malia who she armdrags down twice and into an armbar quickly. Serena holds the arm and Malia sends her to the ropes for the break. Malia gets a cheap shot in and locks on the side headlock, but Serena counters to a top wristlock but Malia pulls her down again. Malia twists the arm, but Serena reverses and tags in Portia who continues to work the arm. Malia counters to waistlock followed by the armdrag into the armbar. Malia has as much experience as Portia’s age, that’s actually funny. Malia shoots her in and nails a huge chop on Perez. Malia pulls her up and tosses her into her corner, then distracts the ref allowing Fyfe to choke Perez. Fyfe tagged in and shoots her in and hits the chop for a near fall. Malia gets another cheap shot in before being tagged back in, and they go for a double clothesline but Portia ducks under and comes back with a crossbody. Portia’s 120 pounds not able to knock down the larger Malia and Fyfe, however a dropkick from Serena helps and Portia gets a near fall. This angers the Experience as the pound on Portia in the corner and now Fyfe has a sleeper on Portia, who’s fading quickly. Portia able to fight out though and nails a chin breaker and they’re both down. Lexie tagged in as is Deeb, who takes down both members of the experience. Serena a one woman wrecking crew as she hammers Fyfe who rolls outside with Hosaka. Malia caught on the apron and Serena slingshots her in and tags in Perez. Serena shoots Malia in and Perez hits a clothesline then slams Malia for a near fall, as Fyfe breaks the pin. All four in the ring and Serena gets tossed to the floor. The Experience hit a double front layout Suplex on Perez and Malia covers for the victory. 6.25/10 a fast paced tag match between two young stars facing the two experienced legends, a good showing from Serena and Perez. We get comments from Melissa backstage who accepts Haze’s challenge for tonight.

4. Rain v MsChif. Rain and MsChif both currently sit at 3-3 as of tonight, and both are looking for a win to build momentum. Both ladies were successful in their matches on Volume 6, Rain in a tag match and MsChif defeating Melissa. The ref goes to check MsChif and she lets loose the scream, they lock up and Rain overpowers MsChif to the corner and gets a cheap shot in. Rain charges and MsChif ducks and nails a snap Suplex float over for a near fall. A rollup and a backslide each get a pair of near falls. MsChif with the body scissors into the bridging back chinlock, which always looks amazing. Rain makes the ropes and MsChif breaks the hold as Rain rolls out of the ring. MsChif follows and Rain rolls in and catches MsChif coming back in. Rain pounds the ribs of MsChif, who has a rib injury, and then chops MsChif in the corner. MsChif whipped to the opposite corner and Rain charges with the knee followed by the bulldog for a near fall. Rain chops MsChif twice and sends her in; Rain connects with the double hand chop. Rain unloads on MsChif and whips her in, but MsChif goes for the Hurricanrana, however Rain drops down and bends MsChif in half. Rain wraps her legs around the chest of MsChif and pounds the stomach as MsChif makes the ropes. Rain pulls her up and hammers her some more, but MsChif comes back with the spinning backfist and the standing moonsault but she hurts her ribs. As MsChif holds her ribs Rain hits a dropkick to those injured ribs and gets another near fall. Rain drags MsChif to the ropes and stomps the injured ribs before posing for the crowd. Rain pulls her up and chops MsChif before sending her in, and MsChif comes back with a sunset flip for a near fall. Rain comes back with the clothesline and again hammers MsChif then rams her head to the buckle. Rain chops MsChif in the corner and ducks under MsChif’s clothesline and hits one of her own. Rain ties MsChif up in the octopus hold, but MsChif hammers her way out of the hold and nails a chin breaker on Rain. Both ladies are down and the ref counts, both slowly get up at six, as Allison leaves to get ready for her match. Rain hits a chop, to which MsChif answers with a series of chops and a big clothesline. Another clothesline for MsChif and sends Rain to the corner then the double stomp to the back three times. MsChif suddenly stops and looks towards the entrance way, as her comes Cheerleader Melissa, guess that feud isn’t over yet. MsChif pulls Rain to the center of the ring and covers for the near fall. MsChif distracted yells at Melissa, this allows Rain to hit the double knee to the chest for a near fall of her own. Rain sets up for the Raindrop, but MsChif counters with the Call from the Grave, a rolling cutter, for a near fall. Lacey comes charging to ringside knocking Melissa flying, and quickly jumps on the apron distracting he ref as she tosses something to Rain. Melissa knocks Lacey off the apron as Rain clotheslines MsChif down with the chain as the ref turns around and disqualifies Rain. 6.5/10 not a bad match, but the goofy ending brought it down a bit. I assume this will lead to the Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew facing MsChif and Melissa on the next show. Lacey and Rain argue with the referee, as he helps MsChif out of the ring. Melissa in the aisle way yelling at Lacey and Rain as MsChif leaves ringside. Backstage we get comments from the debuting Nattie Neidhart, as she will face Sara Del Rey tonight.

5. Amber O’Neal v Allison Danger. Amber has only two wins but four losses so far, while Danger is the opposite with four wins and two losses. The ref calls for the bell and the crowd solidly behind Danger, as they lockup and Daffney has joined Dave on commentary. Allison with a top wristlock on Amber and takes Amber down, but Amber counters. Allison with a fireman’s carry takeover and gets a quick near fall, she tries to send Amber in, but Amber holds the ropes.

Amber gets the backslide for a two count, but Danger back with a small package for two of her own, as they exchange a series of near falls, very impressive from Amber.

Amber ties up the leg of Danger, as Dave asks Daffney what she has planned in SHIMMER, to which Daffney says she wants to keep it a surprise. Amber locks on a single leg Boston Crab but Danger makes the ropes. Amber quickly back to working the leg as she continues to kick the knee of Danger, but gets caught with an enziguri. Amber pulls Danger up, but Danger unloads on her with forearms and a headbutt. Danger hits the Lovelace Choker, an inverted facelock neckbreaker, which hurts her knee, but still makes the cover for two. Danger hits the rolling snap Suplex as she connects with five perfect Suplexes! Allison covers but Amber still kicks out and nails a forearm on Danger, and goes after the knee but couldn’t lift Danger as her back hurts. Amber hits a rolling neckbreaker for a near fall and now both ladies are slugging it out, Danger catches the arm and rolls up Amber for a near fall. Danger quickly goes to the STF on Amber who has no choice but to tap out. 7/10 a very impressive match, much better than I expected it to be. This was one of the best matches from O’Neal so far, right up there with her match with Serena Deeb from Volume Five.

Melissa pulls her up and goes for the Kudo Driver, Haze blocks and hits the Heart Punch and goes for the Mind Trip. Melissa shoves of her and catches Haze as she comes off the ropes into the Kudo Driver! Melissa slow to make the cover and scores the win. 9.5/10 a great main event, could’ve gone either way with a great ending. As Melissa celebrates the hard fought win, she’s suddenly attacked by Lacey and Rain who beat Melissa down. They double team Melissa and then slap her repeatedly, but here comes MsChif to make the save?!? MsChif takes out both member of the Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew. Lacey screams this has nothing to do with MsChif but if she wants to be involved she challenges them to a tag match. The Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew take off backstage as Melissa and MsChif are face to face in the ring. MsChif rolls out of the ring as Melissa stands tall in the ring.


1. Tiana Ringer beat Lorelei Lee in 5:29 6/10

2. Cindy Rogers lost to Ariel at 8:42 6.25/10

4. MsChif beat Rain by DQ at 8:30 6.5/10

5. Allison Danger pinned Amber O’Neal in 12:21 7/10

6. Nikki Roxx defeated Lacey at 14:59 7.5/10

7. Mercedes Martinez beat LuFisto in 13:06 8.75/10

8. Sara Del Rey pinned Nattie Neidhart in 19:45 8.75/10

9. Cheerleader Melissa beat Daizee Haze at 21:52 9.5/10

We started out slow but built to three great matches in the end. I have to admit Amber is getting better with each showing, and I’m glad to see Portia on here. Look forward to seeing Portia grow as a wrestler. It’s nice to see Natalya in SHIMMER actually wrestling, as opposed to the crap in the WWE. This is why they won’t push her in WWE, she over shadows the rest of the “wrestlers” including most of the men. Volume 8 should be interesting as we have Mercedes and Del Rey continue their feud while MsChif and Melissa seem to heading to a tag match with the Wrecking Crew. Should be a great show, as always with these ladies.
