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. The issue goes on sale officially on September 25th, but can already be found on some shelves.
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!

SARA DEL REY TO BATTLE AMAZING KONG ON OCT. 13TH!
Reigning SHIMMER Champion “American Angel” Sara Del Rey emerged victorious in the 16 woman single elimination title tournament during the month of June, but there was one glaring omission from the tournament field that weekend. Due to prior commitments that weekend in Japan, the international phenom Amazing Kong did not stand in Sara’s way of being crowned the first SHIMMER Champion.
Though Del Rey was able to walk away from Berwyn with the gold, she knew in the back of her mind that the very intimidating, undefeated monster would return to SHIMMER with one thing in mind, and that is taking the SHIMMER title off the waist of the American Angel.
On Saturday, October 13th, Amazing Kong returns to SHIMMER competition, and will step in the ring to do battle, one-on-one, with Sara Del Rey as part of the Volumes 14 & 15 taping at the Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL! If Del Rey is still SHIMMER Champion come 10/13, the bout will be for the belt.
Sara has stated that she is out to prove that she truly is deserving of the title and is the best woman wrestler in the world, and she will take on any and all challengers in the process. What will happen when Kong and Del Rey mix it up for the first time in a SHIMMER ring?! That question will be answered on October 13th!
Front row reserved seating for the October 13th SHIMMER taping is sold out. Some general admission tickets are still available at a cost of $15. We will only be selling 175 General Admission tickets for this taping, so that everyone who attends will be able to get seating (which became an issue back on April 7th when we ran out of chairs). Don’t get shut out!

We will also be accepting mail orders for tickets (check or money order). If you wish to purchase tickets via mail order, E-mail us at [email protected] for instructions.
