SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is pleased to formally announce the addition of “The Wrestling Goddess” ATHENA, CHRISTINA VON EERIE, and ALLYSIN KAY to its October 27th & 28th weekend of events at the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL! Volumes 49-52 of the SHIMMER series will be filmed during the course of that weekend.
One of the standout stars of the last set of SHIMMER tapings was “The Wrestling Goddess” Athena. With her fantastic agility and overall athleticism inside the ring, she has quickly grown into one of the most popular SHIMMER competitors. Athena’s rivalry with SHIMMER original Mercedes Martinez helped to firmly establish Athena as a major player within the SHIMMER ranks. Excellent outings against Nicole Matthews, Sassy Stephie, and international high flying star Ray earlier this year only served to cement her position. Athena will also appear at AAW on 10/26, the night before SHIMMER.
Another of SHIMMER’s true rising stars here in 2012 is Christina Von Eerie. Upon her arrival, she immediately battled with established SHIMMER veterans including Sara Del Rey, Mercedes Martinez, and Cheerleader Melissa. Christina later went on to form the successful “MSEERIE” tag team with former SHIMMER Champion MsChif, both in Berwyn as well as on the SHINE events in Florida. Earlier this year, Von Eerie had the chance to step in the SHIMMER ring against foreign talents including LuFisto, Kana, and Kalamity. She is certainly someone to keep your eyes on, both in the singles picture as well as with MsChif in the tag team division. Christina will also appear at AAW on 10/26, the night before SHIMMER.
As was first revealed by Lenny Leonard during commentary on the SHINE 1 iPPV, one of the women who will be making her SHIMMER main show debut on October 27th & 28th is Detroit’s Allysin Kay. She previously appeared at the Berwyn Eagles Club as part of the SPARKLE pre-show bouts just prior to SHIMMER 41 during late 2011. During recent months, Allysin formed the “Made In Sin” tag team with partner Taylor Made at the initial SHINE events. We look forward to seeing what Allysin Kay brings to the SHIMMER main roster in just six weeks.
Athena, Christina, and Allysin join the following previously announced competitors who will participate in the SHIMMER 49-52 tapings: SHIMMER Champion Sweet Saraya Knight, SHIMMER Tag Team Champions The Canadian Ninjas, Cheerleader Melissa, MsChif, Mercedes Martinez, Allison Danger, Leva Bates, Hiroyo Matsumoto, Ryo Mizunami, Kana, and Tomoka Nakagawa. Look for more names to slowly be revealed during the remaining weeks leading up to the events. Over 30 of the top female wrestlers from around the world will be a part of the festivities!
Look for the next joshi athlete from Japan to be announced this coming Monday, Sept. 17th.
