SHIMMER announces next tapings, plus video

It’s less than a month since the SHIMMER volume 41-44 DVD tapings wrapped, but promoter Dave Prazak has already announced the dates for the volumes 45-48 tapings.

It will take place on March 17-18, 2012 – the week after nCw Femmes Fatales VIII in Montreal (featuring the Femmes Fatales debuts of Serena Deeb and Jazz) and just a few days before the provisionally-booked Pro Wrestling: EVE v Ice Ribbon 2 event, which has been pencilled in for Korukuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan on March 20, though nothing is official with that yet.

Coupled with the Women Superstars Uncensored 5th Anniversary Show on March 3, it’s expected to be a busy March for women’s wrestling fans – very similar to March of this year, which had WSU’s 4th Anniversary show, SHIMMER, Pro Wrestling SUN and the exhibition matches at the Ring Of Honor shows.

The upcoming shows will likely feature the first title defences by new SHIMMER Champion Cheerleader Melissa, who defeated Madison Eagles to win the belt. Her victory is slated to be released on DVD before the end of 2011, as editing is already taking place, and one clip’s already been leaked by SHIMMER.

The presentation of the Pro Wrestling Illutrated Female Fifty plaque to Eagles on the volume 41 taping has been uploaded to YouTube, which also features a confrontation between Madison and Serena Deeb, who competed over the title later in the evening.

By the way, the t-shirt that Madison is wearing is a Ringbelles design, but it’s not exclusively worn by Eagles – no, you can own your own Champion t-shirt, or choose from a number of other great designs at our shop, which you can access in the infomation bar at the top of any page you visit on the site, or by clicking here. You can even choose your colour. Go and see!

And while you’re browsing, why not have a listen to the latest Women Of Wrestling Podcast, where Prazak discusses the most recent tapings, who stood out and how we will probably never see that many women on the roster during any one set of tapings ever again.
