SHIMMER Volume 9 – April 7, 2007


Almost made it to double digits on SHIMMER, this is taking a little longer than I expected. Anyways, before we start I just wanted to mention the TNA/ECW PPV from last night. I just finished watching it, and really enjoyed the show. It was a great effort from everyone and a really fun show to watch. Watching it made me feel like it was 1995 all over again, and I actually enjoyed it more than I did Wrestlemania, it was just so damn entertaining. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the old ECW, not the Vince McMahon version, just remember these guys ten years older now, and look it. With that out of the way it’s time for SHIMMER Volume 9 as we slowly head towards the crowning of the first SHIMMER Champion, the tournament is on Volumes 11 and 12. On our last show Mercedes was able to pick up a win over Sara Del Rey, tying the series at one win each. MsChif and Melissa were able to put their difference aside and team against the Wrecking Crew, but failed to win. Tonight I don’t know any matches ahead of time, so let’s see what SHIMMER has in store for us.

We open with Sara Del Rey talking about Mercedes ending her undefeated streak and she needs to get back on the horse. Tonight she will face Cheerleader Melissa and will not fall to the Kudo Driver, we’ll see about that.

1. Rain v Eden Black. Rain is in singles competition tonight, I wonder who Lacey faces, if she’s wrestling tonight. This is our first look at the Jezebel, Eden Black, and she’s cute; love the red hair and purple outfit. She’s from the UK, and started wrestling in 2001 and retired about a year after this show. The bell rings and Dave Prazak and Allison Danger welcome us to SHIMMER, as Rain asks for the test of strength and Eden quickly rolls up Rain. They lock up and Eden with a wristlock, which Rain counters. Eden rolls through and kicks Rain in the head, but Rain to a hammerlock and drops down on the arm. Rain ties up the arm with the legs and does push-ups over Eden. Eden able to break the hold with a knee to the face and Rain looks irate. Rain with a go behind and Eden reverses and takes Rain down. Eden with a front facelock, but Rain counters to a hammerlock, but Eden fights her way free by sweeping the leg out of Rain. Eden ties up the legs and goes for the figure four but Rain kicks her off. Both ladies on their feet and another tie up, Rain with an armbar as Dave wishes Nattie well as she’s gone to WWE. Rain with a side headlock and Eden powers out to a wristlock, but Rain back to the side headlock and Eden takes her down with a pair of armdrags and goes for the Garden of Eden, a triangle choke, basically the Undertaker’s poorly done submission move. Rain makes the ropes and Eden releases the hold, as Rain rolls out of the ring. Rain looks frustrated as the ref counts and Eden dives off the ropes onto Rain on the floor, impressive. Eden pulls her up and slams her on the apron before shoving Rain back in the ring. Eden tries for the pin twice, and twice Rain fights out. Eden sends Rain in and Rain comes back with a running double knee to the chest, brutal looking, which gets her a near fall. Eden sent to the corner and Rain follows with a big knee to the chest of Eden, and then follows with another running knee to the face this time. Rain chokes Eden on the ropes and then hammers Eden in the face with forearm before sending her to the corner. Rain chops the chest of Eden, but takes too long and Eden reverses, however Rain gets a knee in the chest of Eden. Rain with a hairmare to bring Eden out of the corner and gets a near fall. Rain sends Eden to the corner and charges in with a big shoulderblock, then sends Eden to the opposite corner and follows with another shoulderblock. Rain scoops and slams Eden down hard in the middle of the ring and chokes Eden right in front of the ref. Rain chops Eden and sends her in, but Eden comes back with the sunset flip for a near fall. Rain catches Eden with a clothesline and goes back to the chokehold. Rain goes for the Rain Drop but Eden blocks and hits a spinning neckbreaker for a near fall. Both ladies slow to get up, and slug it out on their knees and fight to their feet and Eden hits a roaring elbow. Eden with a pair of clotheslines and sends Rain in, Rain reverses but Eden comes back with the crucifix for a near fall.

Eden springs to the second rope, but Rain catches her and goes for the Acid Rain. Eden rolls down and applies the Garden of Eden and Rain has no choice but to tap. 7.75/10 a great match and a great debut for Eden. Look forward to seeing more from this young lady! We get comments from Cheerleader Melissa who says she will beat Sara Del Rey just like she beat Daizee Haze.

2. Alexa Thatcher v Ariel. Another debut tonight, as we’re seeing Alexa Thatcher for the first time. The crowd split between the two ladies as they lock up, Alexa into a wristlock, and Ariel counters. Alexa applies the hammerlock but Ariel reverses and into the side headlock. Alexa sends her in, and Ariel comes back with a shoulderblock. Ariel comes off the ropes again and Alexa catches her with an armdrag into the armbar. Alexa with a chop and comes off the ropes and gets hip tossed followed by the armdrag and a big slam from Ariel. Ariel sets Alexa on the ropes and chops the chest then hits a lariat. Ariel pulls her up and sends her in again and hits a shoulderblock for a near fall.

Both ladies exchange forearms and chops, but Ariel gets a kick in and goes for the Suplex, but Alexa blocks and hits one of her own. Alexa hits the standing bulldog and gets a near fall. Alexa sends Ariel in, but Ariel blocks and hits the Dariel for the win! 7/10 a short match, but highly competitive. Alexa looked very impressive tonight and Ariel constantly improves. We now get comments from Eden Black, who says it’s her first time in the US and everyone will tap to her.

3. Lexie Fyfe & Malia Hosaka v Cindy Rogers & Allison Danger. Allison comes out wearing a white mask, which looks really freaking creepy. Lexie and Malia have made a formidable team so far here in SHIMMER, so Cindy and Danger have their work cut out for them. Cindy gets in Malia’s face and the ref has to separate them before the bell. Cindy starts while Malia & Fyfe play rock, paper & scissors, which Fyfe wins. They lock up and Fyfe to a hammerlock, which Cindy reverses, however Fyfe re-reverses back as does Cindy. Fyfe fights out to a side headlock which Cindy counters back to the hammerlock and side headlock into a wristlock, but Fyfe tries to reverse, which doesn’t work out very well. Cindy takes down Fyfe with the wristlock and Cindy makes the tag to Danger. The crowd chants for Danger which angers Fyfe, as they lock up and Danger into the wristlock and powers Fyfe down. Danger to a hammerlock and Fyfe reverses, and foes for a full nelson which Danger slides out of and into a keylock. Dave announces Mercedes is out with shoulder surgery while LuFisto is taking a sabbatical from wrestling for a while. Fyfe able to overpower Danger to her corner and they double team Danger before Malia tagged in. Malia snapmares Danger down and pulls back on her arms. Danger reverses the hold and drives a knee in the back of Malia. Malia tries to reverses but Danger flips her over and tags in Cindy who applies a side headlock on Malia and takes her over. Malia with a headscissors breaks the hold and Cindy rolls over her for a near fall. Malia pokes the eyes of Danger and snapmares Cindy down. Malia yanks the hair and now works the arm of Cindy. Fyfe tagged back in and continues to work the arm and tags Malia back in. Malia chops Cindy in the throat and then goes back to the arm as Danger tries to encourage Cindy. Cindy breaks the hold and Malia goes to the eyes before sending her in and nailing a vicious spinkick to the face of Cindy for a near fall. Malia rams Cindy’s face into the buckle and tags in Fyfe who puts Cindy on her shoulders and goes for the TKO, but Cindy grabs the ropes. Fyfe sends her in and Cindy ducks under the clothesline and hits a flying clothesline. Cindy makes the hot tag and Danger comes in and takes down both Malia and Fyfe with chops. Danger hits the snap Suplex on Fyfe and rolls into the cover for a near fall. Fyfe gets a shot in the midsection and rams Danger into the buckle before tagging in Malia. Malia snapmares Danger down and locks on a seated full nelson with a body scissor, then rolls over to the camel clutch. Danger refuses to give in and Malia releases the hold and stomps the midsection of Danger before locking in the Boston crab, and Danger again fights the pain as she crawls to Cindy. Danger almost makes the tag but Malia stomps Danger and chops her hard then brings in Fyfe. Cindy busy with the ref allows the Experience to double team Danger with a big clothesline and Fyfe gets the near fall. Danger almost makes the tag but Cindy was distracted by the fans? I smell a heel turn coming, as Fyfe snapmares Danger down and pulls back the arms. Danger crawls to her corner and again almost makes the tag but Malia distracts the ref. Fyfe drags Danger to their corner and tags Malia back in, and Malia shoots her in and nails the flying double chop on Danger.

Danger hits The Lovelace Choker, aka a neckbreaker on the knee and covers Fyfe, but Malia distracts the ref. Cindy comes in the ring and grabs Danger and hits the sitout facebuster on her opponent. The Experience capitalizes and hits the double inverted Suplex on Danger and Fyfe covers for the win. 7.5/10 a pretty good tag match but the heel turn was not too shocking really. The Experience remains undefeated in tag teams while Cindy leaves her partner laid out in the ring. After a ROH commercial we get comments from Danger who’s disappointed with Cindy’s actions and says she tries to keep her on the right path but instead Cindy let her down. She asks Cindy why she did that and says she meant something to her and it will be the two of them and Cindy will never escape her.

4. Portia Perez v Josie. Always happy to see my favorite Portia Perez, can there be a hotter woman in wrestling? Portia has yet to win a match, let’s hope this is her night. Josie is also winless as well, so both are looking for that first victory. The bell rings and they lock up with Josie going to the armbar, but Portia reverses and rolls up Josie. Portia poses for the crowd, I like it. Portia applies a side headlock and Josie breaks free with a hammerlock and rollup for a quick pin attempt. Portia claims she pulled her shorts, and the ref ignores it. Another lock up and Portia to a hammerlock, but Josie counters to a side headlock and a Portia breaking free to an inside cradle and poses again. They lock up again and Josie with a side headlock, but Portia counters to an armbar then to a full nelson as Allison returns and asks about Portia’s theme song, “Edge of Seventeen”. Allison asks if that is because she’s only sixteen to which Dave says she’s over twenty. Actually her birthday is October 26, 1987 which makes her only nineteen at this point. Josie drops down from the full nelson and rolls her up for a near win. Josie with a waistlock takedown into an Oklahoma roll for another near fall. Josie to a side headlock and Portia fights out and sends her to the corner. Portia charges and Josie moves then armdrags Portia down. A second armdrag followed by a Japanese armdrag and then applies a quick armbar by Josie. Portia powers up and forces Josie to the corner, the ref gets between them and Portia gets a cheap shot in. Portia quickly unloads on Josie in the corner then sends her to the opposite corner and charges but Josie moves. Josie quickly rolls her up again for another near fall as Allison keeps asking about her age. Portia rakes the eyes of Josie and hammers Josie down while taunting the fans. Portia goes for a kick and Josie hooks the leg and nails a leg cradle Suplex sending Portia flying and both ladies are down. Josie hits a clothesline and a back elbow followed by the flying forearm and goes for a pump handle slam, which connects for a near fall as Portia has a foot on the rope. Josie shoots her in and Portia grabs the ropes and slides out of the ring and grabs something under the ring. While the ref argues with Josie, Portia wraps a chain around her fist and clocks Josie in the face. The ref misses it and Portia covers for the victory! 8/10 a nice match, could’ve gone a little longer but still good. I’m biased towards Portia, I just think she’s amazing and would love to see her make it big one day. Portia proudly leaves the ring as Josie’s still out in the middle of the ring and the refs check on her. After they help Josie out of the ring, ring announcer Joey Eastman introduces the newest member of the SHIMMER announce team, Rebecca Bayless, aka Brooke Lynn from Wrestlicious! I believe this would be one of her first appearances after a horrific car accident in 2004. Rebecca comes out to a nice ovation from the crowd and thanks the crowd. Rebecca introduces the Scream Queen, the Goth Goddess, aka Daffney; well I like this so far. Daffney comes out in a pink top and pigtails, nice! The crowd chants Daffney as she high fives the crowd and Rebecca says she’s happy to see her here tonight. Rebecca asks her what she plans to do in SHIMMER and Daffney says she’s proud to be here in SHIMMER. Daffney says one day the fans will see her in the ring but for now she wants to do what she does best, scout talent to manage.

5. Amber O’Neal v Daizee Haze. Can there be a more popular star in SHIMMER then Haze, the crowd goes nuts as soon as they hear the music. Amber tries to sneak out right away and Haze rolls her up for a quick near fall, and Amber is furious. They lock up and Amber with a wristlock but Haze rolls through to one of her own into the hammerlock then the keylock but Amber pulls the hair to break free. Another lock up and Amber to a keylock but Haze reverses and powers Amber down. Amber counters to a hammerlock and Haze fights free, but Amber applies a side headlock.

Haze rolls Amber up for a near fall and Amber pulls her up and gets Haze on her shoulders and goes for the Airplane spin. Haze drops down and hits the heart punch/Yakuza kick combo for the victory. 6.5/10 not a bad match, but nothing exciting really. Too much choking from Amber dragged it down; Amber has flashes of greatness but only occasionally. We go backstage to Rebecca with MsChif, Rebecca asks about why she challenged Amazing Kong tonight. MsChif screams at Rebecca and says she has no fear of Kong and will defeat her tonight.

6. Tiana Ringer v Nikki Roxx. The crowd solidly behind Nikki for this match, and she looks good in purple and white tie-dye. Tiana reminds me of Suzanne Somers from Three’s Company with the pigtails, just saying. Tiana is doing all these goofy looking Kung-Fu poses and Nikki trying not to laugh, as Allison asks if Mr. Miagi is one of her trainers. They lock up and Nikki takes her down quickly, another lock up and Nikki gets her to the corner and we get a clean break.

Nikki says she’s worked hard for the last year and has gotten a win at the last couple shows and kicked ass.

We get comments from Kong who says MsChif thinks she can handle her, she’s gonna teach her a lesson.

7. Lacey v Serena Deeb. This should be a very good match, as Lacey gets better everytime I see her and Serena is spectacular. Much like Natalya, another wasted talent in the WWE, don’t even know why they keep signing all the talent and never use them. The bell rings and the crowd is loud for this match, as Lacey screaming at the crowd. They lock up and Lacey powers Serena to the corner and we get a clean break. Another lockup and again powered to the corner as Lacey breaks, but gets a shot in too. Lacey ducks to the ring apron as Serena goes after her.

We get highlights of Kong tearing through the SHIMMER roster from Volumes five and six, which leads to our next match.

8. Amazing Kong v MsChif. Considering these two, this should be a brutal stiff match. Kong stands in front of MsChif as she tries to get in the ring and the ref pulls Kong back. I love Kong’s introduction, “weighing in at none of your damn business”, that’s priceless, much like MsChif, “From the Inferno”. The crowd quickly starts a chant of “MsChif’s gonna kill you”.

This was a pretty impressive show tonight from SHIMMER as we had some great matches and only one under a seven. Kong and MsChif had match of the night, and I hope we see that match again. Looking forward to the title tournament which is on Volume 11/12 I believe. All in all this was another fun exciting show and nice to see a couple new girls debut.
