YOUNGER NEWCOMERS TO SHIMMER
Several promising young women athletes debuted in SHIMMER during 2007, trying to gain experience, develop, and build their reputations.
Wrestlers like Alexa Thatcher, Nicole Matthews, Ashley Lane, and British notables Eden Black and Jetta all made their way to SHIMMER in ’07 looking to establish themselves. Competitors like Serena Deeb and Portia Perez who came to SHIMMER during ’06 started to make stronger impressions during their second year with the company.
Which of the younger newcomers to the SHIMMER roster look to show the most promise? Who is ready to move up to the next level? Join the discussion in the following thread at The SHIMMER Forums…

THE 2007 INDY DIVA OF THE YEAR!!!
The period covered for the 2007 Indy Diva Awards is from November 1st, 2006 through October 31st, 2007.
You can cast your votes beginning today November 6th and they will last until Tuesday, December 4th.
Also, at this time, I will be taking your suggestions for perhaps some other categories that I might take some consideration for the possibility of adding a few more categories at the 2007 Indy Divas Awards.
If you would like to cast your vote, you can E-mail your nominations and suggestions to me, Brian Reese at: [email protected] or you can post your nominations here: http://ca.groups.yahoo.com/group/indydivas
If you do decide to cast your votes on Indy Divas, you must become a member and join to cast your vote.
You can do that by clicking on the Indy Divas link above.
Also, please keep this in mind: ONLY ONE VOTE PER NOMINEE PER GROUP MEMBER PLEASE, so there’s absolutely no need for you to “stuff” the ballot box!
For the last two years, Indy Divas has had the Top 5 nominees for each and every category to qualify for several polls that either had been or that were conducted in the aforementioned categories listed above, right?
Well, instead of having the Top 5 nominees to qualify, this year Indy Divas are going to have 6 nominees!!!
The Top 6 nominees in each category will qualify for the poll that will be conducted in each category in polls to be officially conducted beginning on Tuesday, December 11th once all the votes have been officially accumulated and tabulated by me on Monday, December 10th.
Your votes will determine the winners.
Also, I will announce at the end of 2007 Indy Divas Awards somewhat a personal Indy Divas Award Of Achievement.
This will be presented to an indy female wrestling personality of my very own choosing.
I WANT EVERYBODY TO PLEASE READ AND TO UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR VOTES!
NOT EVERYBODY WHOM YOU VOTE FOR WILL QUALIFY!
That is going to be determined by the majority of votes that the female indy wrestling personality or personalities of your choice receives to qualify in the many categories that were listed above at the 2007 Indy Divas Awards.
Basically, that is the way the proverbial ball bounces.
There are perhaps some of you out there may feel that some of your favorite female indy wrestling personalities are being either left out or that are being snubbed once the final tally of accumulated votes are made in the process of naming official nominees in the categories at the 2007 Indy Divas Awards.
That is NOT the case here whatsoever. You can be rest assured on that.
I DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT want to hear any whining, crying or complaining from you or by anybody on here about things such as the naming of categories, what the true meaning or integrity of the categories being named are supposed to be, who really should have been voted in or whom you feel should deserve to be in this category or that category like some of you did last year.
Please understand, everybody, there are millions upon millions of females that are managers/valets and/or wrestlers that are a part of several wrestling events and organizations along the indy wrestling circuit the entire world over.
There are some ladies that you may go see on a regular or monthly basis at wrestling shows where you live while there are hundreds upon thousands of millions that others see on a regular or monthly basis at wrestling shows all over in other parts of the United States as well as in other parts of the world.
There are some female indy wrestling personalities out there that you may immediately recognize just by the mention of their name(s), then again there are probably some female indy wrestling personalities that you may have never even heard of before.
Therefore,not every single female along the indy wrestling circuit will make it,so please be sure to keep that in mind.
Besides, this is all supposed to be for fun, isn’t it?
Also, NO BASHING for the ladies that do qualify.
If you do bash any of them in any way, shape, form or fashion, then you can kiss your membership here at Indy Divas good-bye because as far as any bashing of any ladies here at Indy Divas that are either in independent wrestling or on the mainstream level of wrestling is concerned, it’s absolute ZERO TOLERANCE.
Every female that is a part of wrestling deserves the utmost of
respect, regardless as to whom that female may be.
The way it is basically is the way your parents told you probably when you were younger, which is:
“IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT ANYBODY OR ANYTHING, DO NOT SAY IT AT ALL”!
Also, for some of our group members, please be advised that your messages at Indy Divas are moderated, meaning that they are subject towards final approval.
So, in closing, I would like to ask all of you whom that are fans of independent women’s wrestling to please cast your vote for your favorite female indy wrestling personalities for the 2007 Indy Divas Awards at Indy Divas!
PLEASE BE SURE TO VOTE BECAUSE REMEMBER THAT OLD SAYING…..
(IF YOU) DON’T VOTE……..DON’T GRIPE……..DON’T COMPLAIN!
I personally would like to wish all of the female indy wrestling personalities across the indy wrestling circuit the very best of luck.
THANK YOU, EVERYBODY! LET’S BE NICE OUT THERE, EVERYBODY AND LET’S BE NICE TO EACH OTHER,OK?
IT IS NOW TIME TO CAST YOUR NOMINATIONS AND YOUR VOTES AT THE 2007 INDY DIVAS AWARDS!
PLEASE DO SO RIGHT NOW!!!
