Three more names have been added to the SHIMMER roster for the upcoming March 26-27 tapings – where volumes 37-40 will be recorded – and they’re names that the fans will know well, as they were part of the very first taping, and most of the tapings since then.
Nikki Roxx and Ariel have had their share of success in SHIMMER. Both have climbed their way up the card to claim title shots, though both came up short in their efforts to become champion.
Roxx was the first woman to take on Amazing Kong in SHIMMER back on volume 5, and opened the eyes of a lot of fans to her heart, desire and determination. A string of wins saw her main event volume 10 against Sara Del Rey, and she has remained around the higher points of the card ever since.
Likewise, Ariel has faced Amazing Kong in SHIMMER – but unlike Roxx, the Portuguese Princess holds a DQ victory over Kong, as well as a pinfall victory over Cheerleader Melissa to earn herself a title shot against then-champion MsChif, though she ended up falling to the Descecrator.
Indications from the official SHIMMER forum suggest that Roxx and Ariel – collectively known as Pretty Bitchin’ – will also be setting their sights on the Tag Team Championship, currently held by the Canadian Ninjas, Portia Perez and Nicole Matthews. If you consider that 3S (Hiroyo Matsumoto and Misaki Ohata), the Knight Dynasty (Britani Knight and Sweet Saraya) and Rachel and Jessica’s Excellent Tag Team will also be looking to capture the gold, it’s shaping up to be a pretty busy weekend for the Ninjas in late March.
Also joining Roxx and Ariel is SHIMMER co-founder and Pro Wrestling SUN President and Champion Allison Danger, who could be in line for her first ever crack at the SHIMMER championship if she beats current champion Madison Eagles at SUN’s debut show in New Jersey the week before on March 20. Whoever wins that match will be able to claim a shot at her defeated opponent’s title – meaning if Danger can get past Eagles, she could cash in her title shot the following week in Berwyn, IL.
And to add even more spice to the Tag Team Title situation, Danger’s revealed she has plans to form her own team to challenge the Ninjas, with whom she has a long history in SHIMMER – she and Perez fought over many volumes, culminating in a Last Woman Standing victory for Danger on volume 30.
Nikki, Ariel, and Allison join previously announced talents SHIMMER Champion Madison Eagles, SHIMMER Tag Team Champions The Canadian Ninjas, “Your Soul’s Tormentor” MsChif, Cheerleader Melissa, Daizee Haze, “The Queen of Wrestling” Sara Del Rey, “The Latina Sensation” Mercedes Martinez, Serena Deeb, Saraya Knight, Britani Knight, Hiroyo Matsumoto, Misaki Ohata, Ayumi Kurihara, and Tomoka Nakagawa as those confirmed thus far for participation in the March 26th & 27th events.
