You, the fans, asked for her, and on Volumes 9 & 10 of the SHIMMER DVD series, your request will be granted. The one and only JAZZ is headed to SHIMMER on April 7th!

JAZZ - Height: 5'4" Weight: 140 lbs. New Orleans, LA. Debut: 1998. One of the most accomplished American female wrestlers of the past 10 years, Jazz built her early reputation as a part of Extreme Championship Wrestling. Holding her own in very physical bouts against the men on the roster, Jazz quickly impressed fans and wrestlers alike with her toughness and skill. With the closing of ECW in 2001, Jazz was picked up by World Wrestling Entertainment, where she captured the WWE Women's Title from Trish Stratus in February of 2002. She also enjoyed a second reign as champion which began in April of 2003. During the second half of 2006, Jazz became a part of the revived ECW brand in WWE.

The addition of Jazz to the SHIMMER roster provides a lot of exciting match possibilities. Just what kind of an impact will Jazz have in the SHIMMER ranks as part of the mix? Who will be the first wrestler to step in the ring against Jazz in SHIMMER competition? These questions will be answered on April 7th in Berwyn, IL!

Tickets for the April 7th taping go on sale THIS WEEKEND, with fans who attend the All American Wrestling event on Saturday night (2/17) at the Eagles Club in Berwyn getting first crack at tickets. They will then go on sale online Sunday morning (2/18) via PayPal as well as through mail order. Those who purchase tickets via mail order will have their ticket request held until payment is received. We will announce details concerning how to place ticket orders on Sunday morning at

Please note that two changes have been made from what was included in the initial news releases concerning the April 7th taping. First, we've moved bell time to 4pm, with doors opening at 3pm. This should give everyone more time to get to Berwyn on the day of the event. Also, due to the sheer costs involved in putting this huge event together, general admission tickets will be $15 for this double DVD taping. Front row reserved seating will also be available at $20. Fans there live will witness well over a dozen live bouts, featuring twenty of the top women athletes in pro wrestling today!

Make your plans now to join us live in Berwyn on April 7th for the debut of Jazz as part of Volumes 9 & 10 of the SHIMMER DVD series!

Discuss the addition of Jazz to SHIMMER in the official 4/7 News & Discussion Thread at the SHIMMER Forums...


SHIMMER - WOMEN ATHLETES returns to live action on Saturday, April 7, 2007 with another huge double DVD taping at the Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL, just outside Chicago. Bell time for the taping is 4pm. Doors will open at 3pm. Volumes 9 & 10 of the SHIMMER DVD series will be filmed during the course of the event!

Tickets for the 4/7 taping will go on sale on Saturday, February 17th at the AAW event at the Eagles Club in Berwyn. Tickets will be made available online (via PayPal) beginning on Sunday morning, February 18th. We will also be accepting advance ticket orders by mail at that time. We will be offering a choice of either front row reserved seating (tickets and seats will each be numbered) at $20, or the usual general admission (rows 2 and back) at $15.

General admission seating will be on a first come, first served basis, like in the past. The new front row reserved seating option offers not only the benefit of having a front row seat to all the action, but also gives those ticket holders the luxury of not having to be in line early on the day of the show to get the best seat possible. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event, but those fans with tickets purchased in advance will be admitted before any tickets are sold at the door on the day of the show.

One of the hottest rising stars on the UK independent scene makes her way to SHIMMER on April 7th, to appear on Volumes 9 & 10 of the SHIMMER DVD series. "The Jezebel" EDEN BLACK is coming to SHIMMER!

"The Jezebel" EDEN BLACK - Height: 5'3" Weight: 117 lbs. Romford, Essex, UK. Debut: May 2001. Fans chanting "Jez is gonna kill you" is often heard during some of the best women's bouts currently held in the UK. Eden Black has been dominant as women's champion of her home promotion, Real Quality Wrestling, while also appearing for such organizations as Irish Whip Wrestling and LDN. Jez worked her way into the finals of the ChickFight 7 tournament during January of 2007, doing battle with several SHIMMER mainstays along the way, including Cheerleader Melissa, Lacey, and Daizee Haze. Black was also part of one of the first all women shows in the UK (just as the resurgence of the UK women's scene was starting to develop), the IWF Ladies Night Tournament in 2004 where she was a semi-finalist and was eliminated by Lexie Fyfe.

Having wrestled all over the UK and Ireland, Eden Black has a heavy Japanese influence in her style, patterning much of her repertoire after KENTA, Mitsuharu Misawa, and Kenta Kobashi. Initially trained at NWA-UK Hammerlock, Jez also looks to the style of such World of Sport athletes as Johnny Saint and Steve Grey.

Black likes to put her opponents away with a triangle choke which she calls the Garden of Eden. Additionally, she likes to utilize such maneuvers as Blaxploitation (crucifix bomb), the Bajingo Driver (Ghana-rhea), and Possession (wrist clutch exploder).

Wrapping a devastating comination of styles and maneuvers into one explosive package, Eden Black is someone to be taken very seriously in SHIMMER competition. "The Jezebel" is headed to the U.S. to make a real impact in SHIMMER, and it begins on April 7th in Berwyn!

Tickets go on sale 2/17 at the AAW event in Berwyn, and 2/18 online at
