SHIMMER - WOMEN ATHLETES News for 04.06.07

- Weekend Notebook on SHIMMER Forums
- Less than 24 hours away from Volumes 9 & 10!
- Title tournament tickets go on sale Saturday!
- SHIMMER in the Chicago Sun-Times!


[The following is the first entry in the Weekend Notebook thread over at the SHIMMER Forums at chronicling this weekend's developments.]

Another hectic SHIMMER weekend has begun for our entire crew, but it promises to be a whole lot of fun when all is said and done.

Thursday night we began setup at the venue to prepare for Saturday's taping and made sure the lighting and everything with the entranceway was set for the show. A big thanks to Danny Daniels, and especially Dan Lawrence for all of their help in making these SHIMMER shows come to fruition. The whole AAW staff does so much to help the live tapings come together.

"The Jezebel" Eden Black arrived in Chicago this morning, along with her new fiancee and fellow wrestler J.P. Monroe, who came along for some moral support on Jez's first trip to the States. As we typically do before SHIMMER shows, between the time doors open (3pm) and bell time (4pm), we will have a few men's dark matches (which we like to call SPARKLE) featuring some of the wrestlers from AAW. J.P. will be a part of the SPARKLE matches, and thus will make his American debut on Saturday as well.

Once they got settled at the hotel, I spent about 30 minutes on the phone with Bryan Alvarez of for an interview which is part of today's edition of the Figure Four Daily audio show. The show is available to listen to online right now if you are a subscriber to his site. We discussed Saturday's taping, the forthcoming title tournament on June 1st & 2nd, the possibility of some international talent being added to SHIMMER in the future, and discussed some of the recent Ring of Honor happenings as well.

Several other wrestlers will also be arriving here in the Windy City later this evening to get a full night's rest before tomorrow's taping. We're all very excited (or in the words of Death Ray, STOKED) for Saturday. Thanks to all of you who purchased tickets during the past few weeks, we've already exceeded the total attendance of the Volumes 7 & 8 taping, just with advance ticket sales. If you're planning to attend, and don't have tickets yet, have no fear... we will have plenty available at the door tomorrow afternoon. Again, doors will open at 3pm.

I'll try to post here in this thread whenever I get the opportunity to hop online during the course of the weekend. We're less than 24 hours away from live SHIMMER action here in Chicago!
