THREE MATCHES ALREADY SIGNED FOR THIS SATURDAY!
Three big matches have already been signed for SHIMMER 54 this Saturday in Berwyn, as a result of what took place this past weekend at SHIMMER 53 in Secaucus, NJ.
Serena Deeb vs Jessicka Havok
After 17 months on the sidelines due to injury, Serena Deeb made her return to SHIMMER competition this past Saturday at SHIMMER 53. Serena was the subject of an in-ring interview with Amber Gertner early in the show, to discuss her return to wrestling. However, just moments into that interview, Serena was attacked from behind by Jessicka Havok, a wrestler who came from out of the crowd, who was not even scheduled to be a part of the event. Havok was soon joined by Nevaeh and Sassy Stephie in the attack, until Allison Danger and Leva Bates came to Serena's rescue. The six faced off later in the show in a trios tag team match, which saw Serena pull out the win for her team with her signature spear, but was again laid out after the match by Havok. The two will battle once again this Saturday in Berwyn, but this time it will be one-on-one.
SHIMMER Tag Team Championship
PORTIA PEREZ & NICOLE MATTHEWS vs. KELLIE SKATER & TOMOKA NAKAGAWA
SHIMMER Tag Team Champions "The Canadian Ninjas" Portia Perez & Nicole Matthews defended the titles against three other teams in an elimination match this past Saturday at SHIMMER 53. It came down to the Ninjas against the "Global Green Gangsters" Kellie Skater & Tomoka Nakagawa. The closing moments of the match saw Skater attempt to convince Nakagawa not to use her typical "water to the eyes" of her opponent to gain the victory. That cost them the match, as Nicole Matthews gained control of Nakagawa's water bottle, and ended up blinding Skater with the water behind the referee's back, leading to the Ninjas retaining the titles. This Saturday at SHIMMER 54 in Berwyn, the Ninjas and 3G will face off for the SHIMMER Tag Team Championship.
CHEERLEADER MELISSA vs. MERCEDES MARTINEZ
This past Saturday at SHIMMER 53, Cheerleader Melissa became the first two time SHIMMER Champion by defeating Saraya Knight in the steel cage main event. That same day, "The Latina Sensation" Mercedes Martinez handed joshi star Ayumi Kurihara the loss in Ayumi's farewell match on American soil. Melissa and Mercedes are two SHIMMER originals, who have been a part of the roster since the debut SHIMMER event in 2005. They wrestled one another in singles action back on SHIMMER 19, in what was at the time a #1 Contender's Match. Martinez pulled out the victory in that contest, earning a title shot on the next event. Martinez feels that here in 2013 she is at the top of her game, with a mean streak that has led her to several victories inside the SHIMMER ring. This Saturday at SHIMMER 54, Mercedes will face Melissa once again, but this time it will be for the SHIMMER Championship!
ALLISON DANGER TO CONCLUDE IN-RING CAREER THIS WEEKEND
This past Saturday at SHIMMER 53 in Secaucus, NJ, SHIMMER fans and wrestlers alike said farewell to Ayumi Kurihara, who competed in her final match in the United States before her impending retirement in Japan during August. Additionally, this Saturday & Sunday, April 13th & 14th, we will witness the conclusion of the in-ring career of SHIMMER original and co-founder Allison Danger, as part of the SHIMMER 54-57 tapings.
Much like Kurihara, Danger has made the decision to hang up the boots as an active professional wrestler due to years of physical wear and tear on the body, along with several nagging injuries. During her almost thirteen years as a professional wrestler, Allison has traveled the world, competing in rings throughout North America, Japan, Europe, and Africa.
Danger's first high profile exposure in wrestling was as part of the Ring of Honor promotion. She was involved in the first segment of the very first ROH event in 2002, and became a regular on the company's roster, both as a manager and as a wrestler.
Alongside women such as Lacey, Daizee Haze, and Sara Del Rey, Danger was one of the featured female talents on the ROH roster during the promotion's first several years.
With the launch of SHIMMER in late 2005, Allison became not only a prominent figure inside the ring as a competitor, but also played a vital role behind the scenes. During the time since, Danger has participated in some of SHIMMER's most intense rivalries, including a series of bouts against Rebecca Knox, a variety of special stipulation matches against Cindy Rogers, and several wild brawls with her main adversary Portia Perez. Over the past two years, Allison has mainly focused on tag team competition with her "Regeneration X" partner Leva Bates.
This weekend in Berwyn, Allison Danger will compete for the final time inside the SHIMMER ring, before assuming a larger backstage role within the promotion going forward. Be sure to join us live in Berwyn this weekend!
