UNDER 40 TICKETS REMAIN FOR SHIMMER ON 10/13
Less than 40 tickets remain before we completely sell out for SHIMMER’s return to the Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL on Saturday, October 13th. Bell time is 4pm. Doors open at 3pm. Volumes 15 & 16 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed during the course of the taping.
You can secure some of the remaining tickets at www.shimmerwrestling.com right now. General admission seating is available at a cost of just $15. Over a dozen live matches will take place on 10/13 in Berwyn, including the already signed SHIMMER Title bout between SHIMMER Champion “The American Angel” Sara Del Rey and the very intimidating challenger, the undefeated Amazing Kong!
This will be the most loaded talent lineup ever for a SHIMMER DVD taping. If you don’t have tickets yet, and would like to check it all out live and in person in less than two weeks, pick up your tickets while you still have the opportunity to do so!
Mark your calendars, everybody… October 13th, SHIMMER is back in Berwyn!

DVD PRODUCTION NOTES FROM FLORIDA
We’re currently down in Florida for two live FIP events and a full week of production on several projects. I’ve been here since Wednesday working on the ROH footage, and we had shows for FIP on Friday night in Brooksville, FL (which saw Lacey come up the winner of a three way match against Daizee Haze and Sara Del Rey when Rain interfered), and Saturday night in Crystal River, FL (which saw Daizee Haze & Sara Del Rey defeat Lacey & Rain in a tag team match when Daizee pinned Lacey after the heart punch/Yakuza kick combo).
During this seven day stretch we’re finishing up the Driven double DVD set (the bonus matches disc), plus working on the Manhattan DVD, the Detroit DVD, and the Man Up pay-per-view from Chicago Ridge, in addition to production on three FIP DVD releases, and continuing work on the SHIMMER Vols. 11 & 12 title tournament releases.
We have three more straight days of production before I head back to Chicago. We are then filming the fourth ROH PPV next Saturday in Edison, NJ, and then the following weekend is the SHIMMER taping. In all honesty, just looking at our schedule for the next two weeks, it will probably be early in the week right after the 10/13 taping that I’ll even have the entire first edit of the title tournament footage to proof and make final edits on, before signing off on it and sending the DVDs off to be manufactured. Though I really wish we could have them on the merch table on 10/13, there’s just no way time wise that it’s going to be possible.
We will get the two tourney DVDs released as quickly as we can (likely during the final week of October), and will be going right into production on Vol. 13 (from 6/2 in Berwyn, IL) and Vol. 14 (from 7/1 in Inverness, FL) to make sure that all of those DVD releases are out and available as we hit the holiday season (which will see lots of ROH sales and whatnot during late November and December).
We’ve got a lot on our plate right now, but we’re going to keep churning out product as quickly as we can. There are less than 40 tickets left for our 10/13 taping in Berwyn before it completely sells out to fire code capacity at the venue. This is our biggest advance yet for a SHIMMER taping, and the fact that we’ve been able to do it based on announcing very little is a testament to how much faith in our product each of you have. You won’t be disappointed… though we haven’t announced much (by choice), I will say that this will be the most loaded SHIMMER talent lineup in company history on 10/13!

SHIMMER PROFILED IN THE PWI 500!
Pro Wrestling Illustrated devoted six pages of this year’s edition of the PWI 500 issue of the magazine to profiling SHIMMER! The article, written by Bill Meltzer, is an introduction to what SHIMMER is all about to fans who may not be aware of us yet. Several of photographer George Tahinos’s shots from the June 1st & 2nd weekend of tapings will appear along with the article’s text.
You can read the text of the article on PWI’s web site, at the following link…
We couldn’t have hoped to be included in a higher profile edition of PWI than the 500. A big thank you to everyone at Pro Wrestling Illustrated for helping spread the word about SHIMMER to wrestling fans everywhere!
