The sister promotion to SHIMMER and Dragon Gate USA debuts tonight on iPPV with a great card. I hope some fans will purchase it because it looks to be a great event with former WWE Divas Jazz, Su Yung and Tracy Taylor and TNA Knockouts Santana Garrett, CVE, Rain, Roxxi and Daffney also appearing. The main event is a dream match that may never happen again so don't miss Del Rey vs Jazz. I will be posting results and doing a review on the night or Saturday morning!
Info about SHINE 2 on August 18th. Sara Del Rey, Tracy Taylor and Jayme Jameson will not be returning for SHINE 2.
New names announced for SHINE 2. MsChif, Mia Yim, Sassy Steph, Portia Perez, Jessica Havok, Taeler Hendrix, Sojo Bolt and Heidi Lovelace.
I thought SHINE 1 sounded like a one-match show on paper tbh. The diva-dirt report made some of the undercard matches sound somewhat decent, although I probably would've ordered it for the novelty of the main event anyway if I was actually employed. I dunno, tight funds has turned me into a bit of a card snob lately. (haven't ordered any EVOLVE or WSU shows this year, and only a couple of DGUSA shows)
What's the skinny on this fed anyway, is it a Gabe-run thing or a Prazak-run thing? There seems to be a ton of companies getting in on the WWNLive action this past while.
What's the difference between SHINE and SHIMMER if they're affiliates?
Been inactive on the site for a while guys, sorry for no updates.
Results for SHINE 3 Sep 22nd.
* Santana def. Sienna Duvall with a kick to the head followed by a handspring moonsault. Good opening match. Santana continues to impress in each of her showings.
* Leva Bates (as Sheriff Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead) def. Kimberly via superkick. Not as fun as Leva’s previous showings against Mercedes Martinez and Portia Perez. Rather slow, perhaps not as much chemistry. Good win for Leva, however, who is proving popular with the crowd.
* The West Coast Connection (Tracy Taylor & Su Yung) def. Rainbow Bright (Gabby Gilbert & Luscious Latasha) after Yung hit Gabby with a boot to the back and Taylor got the pin.
* Taylor Made (w/ Allysin Kay & April Hunter) def. Greek Barbie after interferences by April Hunter and Allysin Kay. Kay hit Barbie with a Samoan Drop and allowed Taylor to make the pin.
* Host Daffney had an in-ring segment with legends being honored by SHINE. Summary below by PWInsider:
Daffney is in the ring and she talks about the women’s wrestling legends that they are going to celebrate tonight. Daffney introduces Lexie Fyfe. She asks for the Legends to come into the ring.
The first person to be honored is Sabrina. The next person honored is Diane Von Hoffman. The next legend honored is Joyce Grable. The final honoree is LeiLani Kai.
Lexie thanks everyone for coming tonight for this ceremony. She talks about how she learned a lot from these women. She thanks everyone for paving the way for women’s wrestling today.
Mercedes Martinez comes out and she tells them to get out of her ring and she is tired of hearing them while she waits in the back for her match. Mercedes asks for a motorized scooter to get these women out of her ring.
Daffney stands between Mercedes and the legends.
* Jayme Jameson def. Mercedes Martinez with a rollup.
* Jessicka Havok def. Mia Yim after Yim missed a corkscrew splash and Havok hit her with the Air Raid Crash.
* Allysin Kay (w/ April Hunter & Taylor Made) def. Christina Von Eerie with a belly-to-back suplex bridged into a pin.
* Jazz def. Rain when Rain tapped out to the STF.
* Announced for SHINE 4: SHIMMER Champion Saraya Knight will defend her title against Jazz.
I'll be posting updates more often on here.
