SHIMMER Galleries: Volume 49, Volume 50, Volume 51

Here’s our final gallery from the most recent SHIMMER tapings. This was the one where Allysin Kay, as she long ago prophesized, got in the ring with The World Famous Kana (although rumor has it she’s still looking forward to a one-on-one confrontation). Also, Athena continued making her case that she is the best by taking on the best in Ayako Hamada. All this, and lots of ninjas. Enjoy!

Please enjoy our photos, volume 51 and 52 are coming soon!

Greg, boss that he is, attended yet another three day international wrestling summit with the AAW/SHIMMER Weekend. Here’s his wonderful photos from the first of the four SHIMMER shows. This was the one where Athena found herself in the main event, Courtney Rush lost herself in the past, and, delivering on months of trash talk, Portia Perez actually, finally, for real beat Kana. Enjoy!

SHIMMER: Volumes 17 and 18 Gallery

Memories. Before the SHIMMER Tag Titles. Before the Joshi. Before even the Australians. Back in the Halcyon days when the likes of Wesna and Lacey still graced the ring. In the run up to the next, massive, SHIMMER tapings Greg has dug into his archives again and found us some classic SHIMMER photos. This time from the tapings Volumes 17 and 18 tapings on April 26th, 2008. These shows provided some of SHIMMER’s all time greatest matches, like Wesna vs Amazing Kong and Cheerleader Melissa and MsChif vs “The Dangerous Angels” Sara Del Rey and Allison Danger. They were also historic as they presented the first title change in SHIMMER, when MsChif dethroned Sara Del Rey to become SHIMMER’s second champion (that match also led to Sara’s internationally feared “Death Rey” persona).

Here are the match listings to jog your memory. And enjoy the almost 450 pictures:

Our First SHIMMER

Everyone at DDS has an abiding love for all things SHIMMER. It is an incredible promotion that captures everything we love about professional wrestling. Greg (@BigZ38) has attended SHIMMER events for the past four years and captured thousands upon thousands of fantastic shots. Here, we offer you photos from the first set of tapings he attended, Volumes 15 and 16. Ayzali (@AyzaliWali) has written her personal perspective on the recent Volumes 37-40 tapings, which were her first shows. We hope you enjoy reliving these memories, both recent and distant, with us.

I discovered SHIMMER at a time when I was phasing wrestling out my life. I remember my cousin stumbling into my room with a sense of urgency. She stated over and over that she has found someone and something to really believe in. She and I circled the T.V and there it was: volume 6 of SHIMMER. I watched overtly impressed and constantly trying to guess whom the woman she spoke of was. Each match I asked, “was it her?” seeing as I saw an overwhelming amount of talent in each performer. It was MsChif whom she spoke of, I immediately knew why as well. My cousin was able to see herself in MsChif, and that alone made this the greatest match she had ever seen.

Discovering SHIMMER meant rediscovering why I want to step in the ring myself. My cousin and I constantly rambled on about wrestling some day but we didn’t see women who looked like us. We were conditioned to talent who looked very similar to one another, rarely with alternative styles or builds. Every now and again we saw women with a different element, but they always seemed to be overlooked. In SHIMMER was a show where not only did all the women have different looks and styles, the equality among them was very apparent.
