This Saturday at the Manhattan Center in New York City, Ring of Honor presents its Sixth Anniversary Show. As part of the historic event, all of the titles recognized by ROH will be on the line!

Sara Del Rey became the first SHIMMER Champion on June 2, 2007 by defeating Lacey in the finals of a sixteen woman tournament held in suburban Chicago. Along with Sara and Lacey, the semi-finals of the tournament included “Dark AngelSarah Stock and Daizee Haze. In the time since winning the belt, Del Rey has since defended the title against both Lacey and Stock, but The Haze has yet to receive a title match.

The rivalry between Sara Del Rey and Daizee Haze dates back to the main events of SHIMMER Volumes 2 and 3. Daizee and Sara were the last two wrestlers in a four way elimination match on Volume 2, which saw Death Rey pin The Haze following the Royal Butterfly. The Volume 3 main event was a singles contest between the two, which saw Sara yet again pin Daizee’s shoulders to the mat, with a bridging German suplex.

Though Del Rey and Haze haven’t met in SHIMMER competition since Volume 3, their athletic rivalry has continued on in ROH rings across the circuit. The two first met in ROH competition at Destiny during June of 2006, in a match which saw Sara pick up the victory. They were on opposite sides of a tag team contest at Fifth Year Festival: NYC in February of 2007, where the Daizee’s feud against Lacey caused her to brawl to the locker room, leaving her tag team partner Alexa Thatcher to face two women by herself and ultimately lose the match.

While Daizee’s long running war against Lacey was perhaps her biggest focus in ROH (a feud based on pure hatred), she never forgot about Sara Del Rey and the true challenge of going hold for hold, move for move against her in technical wrestling battles.

Despite Daizee’s inability to pull out a victory against Del Rey for a full year in either SHIMMER or ROH competition, The Haze showed her heart and determination by finally scoring a pinfall on Sara at This Means War II in Long Island during April of 2007.

At ROH’s first PPV taping Respect Is Earned in May of 2007, Daizee and Sara had the honor of appearing on the card in one of the bonus matches for the DVD release of the event. Sara was able to avenge her This Means War II loss by defeating The Haze in Manhattan. The two were also on opposite sides of a dream partner tag team match on the Man Up DVD bonus matches during September of 2007 in Chicago, as Daizee and Amazing Kong downed Sara and Lacey.

ROH’s third PPV, Undeniable in October of 2007, saw history made as Del Rey and Haze were featured in the first women’s bout on ROH PPV! The impromptu match was put together by Del Rey’s agent Larry Sweeney just moments before it took place, and as a result the SHIMMER Championship was not at stake. The match came to a conclusion when Del Rey was distracted by Claudio Castagnoli and Chris Hero brawling at ringside, leaving Daizee with the opening to score a surprising rollup and earn the pinfall victory on PPV!

The Haze has proven she can pin Sara Del Rey on more than one occasion, and this Saturday night in NYC, Daizee gets her first shot at Sara Del Rey’s SHIMMER Championship! Both Sara Del Rey and Daizee Haze have been integral parts of both the ROH and SHIMMER rosters for several years now, bringing the best athletic women’s wrestling action each and every time. Will Daizee be able to defeat Sara again this Saturday night, this time with the title on the line, or will Del Rey be successful in her fifth defense of the SHIMMER Championship? That question will be answered this Saturday night!

ROH’s Sixth Anniversary Show will take place this Saturday night, February 23rd, at the Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom, 311 West 34th Street, New York, NY, 10001. Tickets are available at www.ROHwrestling.com or by calling 215-781-2500.
