You may not have heard of Davina Rose, but she’s been working hard on the West Coast of the US. Competing against SHIMMER stars of past and present, she has taken on Sara Del Rey, Amazing Kong, Allison Danger, Sassy Stephie, Amber O’Neal and more. As revealed in yesterday’s Roundup previewing this weekend’s SHIMMER tapings, she has also teamed with Serena Deeb, and has become a protege of the former WWE “Anti-Diva”, with comparisons offered between the two.

Competing in promotions like Calfornia’s Big Time Wrestling as well as Nevada’s Pro Wrestling Destination, the Newark, CA native debuted three years ago this month, and has caught the attention of SHIMMER promoter Dave Prazak, who has booked her for this weekend’s DVD tapings. This will be Rose’s first trip outside of her “comfort zone” of California and Nevada, though she will be familiar with a number of the names on the roster.

She also has the opportunity to expand her profile through SHIMMER’s DVD sales, which spread across the world. Considering the world of possibilities that are on offer, this weekend could be the start of bigger things for Miss Rose…

The match for this week’s Retro is from September 2009, a year after Davina’s debut. It is against her then-rival Christina Von Eerie, who will also be at SHIMMER this weekend. The pair are squaring off in BTW after Rose was attacked by Von Eerie the previous month. Dear viewer, please don’t be fooled by the lack of upright hair – that really is Christina. There is the chance these two could meet again this weekend – keep an eye on Ringbelles and we will give you results from Berwyn, as well as interviews, videos and opinion from Saturday onwards.
