Mercedes v LuFisto at Femmes Fatales IX, plus more
nCw Femmes Fatales IX on July 7 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada is taking shape.
As well as Kalamity defending the International Championship against Sara Del Rey and the Canadian Ninjas taking on Sweet Cherrie and a partner of her choosing, the promotion has announced that LuFisto will take on Mercedes Martinez in a match which has its roots set in the closing moments of Femmes Fatales VIII.
After failing to win the International Title from Kalamity, Martinez turned heel and attacked the Champion with a chair, but was stopped by LuFisto, and the pair tore strips out of each other both in the ring and at ringside. It seemed inevitable that this match was going to happen, and now it is official.
Considering their high profiles and being on the same rosters in a number of promotions, this is the first match between the two since SHIMMER Volume 7 back on October 22, 2006. Seriously – these two haven’t faced each other in a big-time situation for close to SIX YEARS.
However, that’s not the only announcement made today. Click after the jump and we will reveal the rest…
After enjoying a massively successful six months, ECCW Women’s Champion Kc Spinelli is set to make her Femmes Fatales debut, against an as-yet unnamed opponent. After wrestling in SHIMMER’s SPARKLE matches in early October 2011, she capped off the month by defeating her heated rival Nicole Matthews to claim the ECCW Women’s Championship, successfully defending it against Matthews just last week in Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada. On top of that, Spinelli made her official SHIMMER debut last month, getting her first win by beating NY Knockout on Volume 48. Gaining experience, momentum and popularity, it is a massive compliment for Spinelli to be booked for Canada’s top all-female promotion, and will likely go down a storm in Montreal.
Tickets for Femmes Fatales IX go on sale online this Sunday. If you want to get ringside seats (which also includes a 30 minute meet and greet before the show), move quickly, as there are only 40 available.
