Forever Young: The life and times of Johnnie Mae Young
This is a feud beyond all others that goes back several years. Saraya Knight won the SHIMMER Championship away from Cheerleader Melissa after destroying her knee in the same way that happened to her in years past. Since then, Melissa has been waiting for her rematch to get the championship back and hurt Saraya in the process. Now that match is finally here and it will be an all out war that SHIMMER is not use to seeing.
ClickWrestle special match: Cheerleader Melissa vs. Nene Kimura vs. Tiffany from December 4, 2004!
This match was not scheduled to take place, but when all three girls attacked each other earlier on the show, APW Commissioner, Gabe Ramirez gave the fans an early Christmas present by letting this 3 way happen. Nene and Tiffany started the match with several double-team moves on Melissa, but the teamwork quickly fell apart when both girls wanted to make the pin. This was an awesome 3 way girls match, full of great moves and holds. Be sure to watch as Melissa debuts her new finisher, the VertaBreaker on Tiffany.
Shazza McKenzie, a recent addition to the SHIMMER roster all the way from Australia, takes on one of the toughest of the SHIMMER originals in Mercedes Martinez. Shazza is gonna learn the hard way what it takes to be successful in SHIMMER because Mercedes is still furious after her last loss.
Before this match, Sassy Stephie made the bold claim that Kalamity will kiss her sass. That might end up coming back around to bite her as Kalamity isn’t known as one that holds back and that comment might push her even hard in trying to get the victory over Sassy Stephie.

This week’s Match of the Week is a great tag team match: The Canadian Ninjas vs. Made in Sin vs. LuFisto & Kana vs. Kellie Skater & Tomoka Nakagawa from SHIMMER 53 taped on April 6, 2013.
We start things off with Allysin Kay and LuFisto in the ring. LuFisto gets in control with a bodyslam and a senton bomb, then tags in Kana, and the pair instantly make an impact with a stunner/dropkick combination, before Kay tags in Nicole Matthews…who tags straight over to Nakagawa. Her and Kana in the ring now, who get up to some impressive stuff with Nakagawa hitting a cartwheel dropkick to a seated Kana, before tagging in Portia Perez. Nicole Matthews then tags herself in, and we’re left with both Ninjas in the ring together. Fair enough. They play around with some slow-motion mat wrestling, before Skater enters to stop the fun, clearing house with some nice offense and a big leg drop to Matthews, but Portia breaks up the pin.

ClickWrestle “Match of the Week”: Cheerleader Melissa vs. Saraya Knight in a steel cage match from April 6, 2013
Welcome to this week’s OWW Match of the Week, in which one outstanding women’s wrestling match will be offered by ClickWrestle.com at a deep discount. This week’s Match of the Week is Cheerleader Melissa vs. Saraya Knight in a steel cage match from April 6, 2013!
This match is from SHIMMER Vol. 53. The match starts with some smooth chain wrestling. I doubt that’ll last long. Melissa works Saraya’s leg, but Saraya reverses into a bodyscissors and applies a modified camel clutch. Melissa escapes and drives Saraya head-first into the cage. The pair start climbing to the top rope, and exchange strikes while using the cage to keep elevated. Saraya pulls Melissa’s leg and she falls crashing down to the mat. Back to her feet, Melissa drags Saraya to the top rope corner and kicks her head into the cage.
Allison Danger carries the torch for SHIMMER everywhere she goes, and usually gets a crack and all the high profile international talent that comes into the company. The Dangerous One faced off with French-Canadian wrestler LuFisto, known for her hardcore style but also proficient in technical pro-wrestling. This first time ever match-up should have been way higher on the card – like third to last.
