- Volume 7 almost ready for release!

I just got done proofing the final edit of the Volume 7 DVD before it's sent off for duplication, and thought I would post a few comments.

Words cannot express how much I wish we still had Nattie Neidhart at our disposal for future tapings. She was a perfect fit for SHIMMER, and I am extremely thankful that she was able to appear for us before she got signed. Her future is beyond bright in this business.

Re-watching Mercedes Martinez vs. LuFisto reminds me of what fantastic performers both of them are, and how much they will be missed on April 7th due to their respective injuries. This is a very physically taxing profession, and both women's bodies have paid the price for the style of matches they participated in over the past several years. If you haven't heard, Martinez recently underwent surgery and will have an extensive rehabilitation period before she is able to return to the ring. Similarly, the wear and tear of the hard hitting, and oftentimes death match style of LuFisto has forced her into possible retirement. They say time heals all wounds... and I truly hope that time is all that is necessary for us to see both women compete once again here in SHIMMER.

Of course, one of the standout personalities in SHIMMER thus far has been Rebecca Knox, and she was also sidelined with a serious injury during late 2006, and was unable to appear on the Volumes 7 & 8 taping. For those looking for an update on her condition, she is not ready to return to the ring any time in the immediate future, but word is she's going to return to train a little during the coming months and just see how it goes. For someone with her talent, she needs to be very careful to not rush back into action before she is completely ready.

With three key performers sidelined with injuries, this is a crucial time for SHIMMER as a whole. It provides the other competitors, particularly those who haven't been in the main event picture thus far, with an opportunity to step up their game and break out as top tier stars. If and when the women on the injured list are able to return, that will make things all the more competitive at the top of the SHIMMER card. Volumes 7 and 8 saw wrestlers like Nikki Roxx and Tiana Ringer up their game in search of working their way up the ladder, and I'm sure April 7th will be no different.

We welcome "The Jezebel" Eden Black to SHIMMER on Volumes 9 & 10. She has shown what she is capable of in Europe, and built her reputation, partially in matches against wrestlers who regularly compete in SHIMMER. She debuted for ROH this past weekend in Liverpool and found out first hand what Sara Del Rey and Allison Danger bring to the table.

April 7th will also see the return of one of the most dominant women athletes worldwide, as Amazing Kong comes back to SHIMMER competition for Volumes 9 & 10.

Additionally, former WWE Women's Champion Jazz makes her way to SHIMMER on April 7th, and I don't even have to explain what kind of a huge impact her mere presence on the roster will make. Jazz has been in the upper echelon of American female wrestlers for the past ten years, and isn't coming to SHIMMER to mess around.

Look for Volume 7 to hit during the coming weeks.
