LACEY APPRECIATION ON THE INTERWEB
———————————————————-

Many fans at The SHIMMER Forum demanded that it be renamed The LACEY Forum due to the excessive Lacey support as of late, including a huge Lacey Appreciation Thread which is now 11 pages long. Many of these people are crazy if you ask me. But http://www.laceyforum.com/ has been established, and, well…

SHIMMER 2005-2007 ROSTER ALBUM ON SALE!
———————————————————-

The SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES DVD series began filming in late 2005. The first taping featured 18 of the most skilled female wrestlers from around North America, and built the foundation for subsequent tapings. As SHIMMER’s fan following started to grow, women athletes from other parts of the world were brought to SHIMMER to mix it up with the Americans as well, giving the DVDs an international flavor. Between that initial taping in November of 2005 and the October 2007 taping, a total of 37 female wrestlers competed under the SHIMMER banner!

Many fans have requested that SHIMMER release new merchandise items to accompany our DVD series, and we’ve listened! Now available for pre-order is the Limited Edition SHIMMER 2005-2007 Roster Album! This collector’s item features photos and profile information/statistics for each and every woman who wrestled for SHIMMER between Volume 1 and Volume 16 (the last DVD filmed in 2007). The Roster Album features the work of SHIMMER staff photographers Jill McKee and Gilda Pasquil, printed in full color on high quality glossy cardstock. The Roster Album is an excellent accompaniment piece to the SHIMMER DVD series. For those of you who have received our small glossy cardstock promotional flyers before our tapings, the Roster Album is printed the same way, on the same glossy cardstock. Just imagine full size pages of that glossy cardstock material, in eight page booklet form, and that’s the Roster Album!

The SHIMMER 2005-2007 Roster Album is available at a cost of $10, plus a flat worldwide shipping fee of $5. If you are located in the United States, your order will be shipped via Priority Mail, in a Priority Mail box (to best prevent from potential damage in shipping). Elsewhere in the world, your order will be shipped in a flat manila envelope.

Since the Roster Album is perfect for collecting autographs in, we are making it affordable for you to purchase additional copies of the Roster Album at a discounted price. If you’d like to keep one copy in original condition, and use a second copy for collecting autographs, you can purchase up to two extra copies of the Roster Album at a cost of just $6 for each additional one.

Please be advised that this is a Limited Edition merchandise item. Once all of the Albums sell out, we will not be doing a second printing. You can secure your copies right now via pre-order, either by using the PayPal buttons at the link below, or by mail order (E-mail [email protected] for further instructions for mail orders). The Roster Albums are scheduled to begin shipping during the third week of February. We will post an announcement at SHIMMERwrestling.com the day they begin to ship.

THE HAZE GRANTED SHIMMER TITLE SHOT FOR 2/23 IN NYC!
———————————————————-

If you saw Ring of Honor’s “Undeniable” pay-per-view broadcast, you witnessed the first women’s bout in ROH PPV history between SHIMMER Champion Sara Del Rey and Daizee Haze.

The SHIMMER Title was not on the line in this impromptu match, put together by Del Rey’s agent Larry Sweeney just moments before it took place. Toward the end of the match, an altercation took place at ringside between Claudio Castagnoli and members of Sweet & Sour Inc. which caused Sara to be being taken off guard as Daizee scored the upset pinfall victory with a rollup.

As a result of The Haze pinning the SHIMMER Champion on ROH PPV, both SHIMMER and ROH officials have agreed that Daizee is now in line to receive a SHIMMER Title match, something she has yet to be granted since the establishment of the championship last summer. Daizee Haze’s opportunity will come at ROH’s huge “Sixth Anniversary Show” on February 23rd at the Manhattan Center in New York City!

Can The Haze beat Del Rey once again, and become the second ever SHIMMER Champion on February 23rd? Two of the most prominent Women of Honor will battle for the belt as part of ROH’s “Sixth Anniversary Show!” Details are below.

Ring Of Honor
February 23rd, 2008- 7:30 pm belltime
