Rhia O’Reilly added to Shimmer 53 at Wrestlecon

Jan 15, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is pleased to announce the addition of RHIA O’REILLY to the SHIMMER 53 event as part of WrestleCon on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 (the day before WrestleMania 29) in Secaucus, NJ.

Belfast, Northern Ireland’s Rhia O’Reilly is a competitor who has truly spread her name across the globe during the past few years. With several training influences, including Lance Storm, O’Reilly has become a key figure on the women’s scene throughout Europe. O’Reilly’s 2012 in SHIMMER included battles against the likes of Courtney Rush, Taylor Made, Shazza McKenzie, Cheerleader Melissa, Kc Spinelli, and a brief multi-match rivalry with Davina Rose, which caught the attention of her fellow wrestlers and fans alike. Rhia made her allegiance to one of her mentors, SHIMMER Champion Saraya Knight, quite clear during her time competing in Berwyn as well. On the heels of being voted 2012’s Best SHIMMER Newcomer by the fans, Rhia O’Reilly is now the latest addition to the growing talent roster for our debut event in the northeast, as SHIMMER strives to present the very best women athletes from around the world at WrestleCon!


SHIMMER 53 will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (355 Plaza Drive) in Secaucus, NJ. Bell time for this afternoon event is 12pm (Noon).
