Happy New Year!!! We want to thank you for a tremendous 2012. We are ready for an even better 2013. Thank you for joining us for the ride! Everything we do only happens because of you. We are going to close the year with this quick WWNLive Alerts featuring a major match announcement involving John Morrison, last chance at sales and another part of our 2012 In Pictures. We know you want to party, so let’s get to it….

It is not too late to treat yourself to our last Holiday Season Sales at both www.DGUSA.tv and www.WWNLive.com On Demand. However, all sales end tomorrow night (January 1st). Here’s a quickie look at the great deals you can get for a few more hours:

-All DGUSA & EVOLVE DVDs are 2 for $25 in the DGUSA.tv Store. This makes DGUSA DVDs almost 40% off. You can mix and match any combination of DGUSA and EVOLVE DVDs, including the new EVOLVE 12: Fox vs. Callihan pre-order. This will be your last chance to get every DGUSA and EVOLVE release at this much of a discount for a long time. To take advantage of this sale just go to the DGUSA or EVOLVE section of the DGUSA.tv Store.

-All DGUSA/EVOLVE/Dragon Gate Gear is 30% off in the DGUSA.tv Store. All of these styles will go out-of-print once they are sold out, so this is your last chance at these stylish designs. There are only limited quantities left of many sizes. These high quality shirts are a bargain at 30% off!

-All DGUSA & EVOLVE iPPVs from 2009-2011 are $7.99 at WWNLive.com On Demand. All prices are already discounted so no codes are needed. When you buy an iPPV you own it to watch anytime you want. This is almost 50% off!

-All DGUSA & EVOLVE iPPVs from 2012 are $9.99 at WWNLive.com On Demand. This is a great chance to catch up on all the spectacular shows of 2012 for 33% off. You get unlimited viewing access when you order with this sale!

We know you have a lot of options on where to spend your money and we appreciate you picking DGUSA, EVOLVE and WWNLive. We put your money right back into the products to make it better for you. Thank you for making DGUSA, EVOLVE and WWNLive happen!

Akira Tozawa has signed the open contract John Morrison sent to Japan. It will be John Morrison vs. Akira Tozawa when Dragon Gate USA debuts in Santa Maria, CA on January 25th. How will the highly athletic Morrison fare against one of Dragon Gate’s best? Tickets are now on sale in the DGUSA.tv Store or by calling 267-519-9744.

We can confirm now that Akira Tozawa will also be on both DGUSA events in Huntington Park, CA on January 26th and January 27th. We know how popular Tozawa is with the Los Angeles area fans so we are working on lining up two “dream matches” for him that you can’t see anywhere else. Tickets are now on sale in the DGUSA.tv Store.

This will be the first of three WWNLive Alerts this week. We are currently finalizing the cards for all three DGUSA shows in California and will have several major match announcements this week. In other significant breaking news, details of the EVOLVE Title Tournament on April 5th at WrestleCon will be released by early next week right here in the WWNLive Alerts.

Look for Shane Strickland to make his way to EVOLVE soon. Officials consider him at the top of the class of 2013 prospects, especially after his recent performance in the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup tournament.

The voting will begin for the DGUSA/EVOLVE 2012 Year End Awards later this week. We have decided to combine the Wrestler Of The Year and MVP categories since many of the same names were popping up. We encourage you to send us your nominations for Wrestler Of The Year, Tag Team/Stable Of The Year, Feud/Rivalry Of The Year, Match Of The Year, Show Of The Year and Best Newcomer. Thank you.

Have a happy, safe and wonderful New Year! Here’s to a great 2013!!!

SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is pleased to announce the addition of MIA YIM to the SHIMMER 53 event as part of WrestleCon on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 (the day before WrestleMania 29) in Secaucus, NJ.

Mia Yim is one of the top young rising stars in professional wrestling, competing as frequently these days in Japan as she does in the United States. Mia has spent the past several months wrestling for the REINA promotion in Japan, a commitment which caused her to be absent from the SHIMMER 49-52 tapings during October in Berwyn. SHIMMER 53 at WrestleCon will see Mia’s return to SHIMMER action.

SHIMMER 53 will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (355 Plaza Drive) in Secaucus, NJ. Bell time for this afternoon event is 12pm (Noon).

Tickets are now on sale at http://www.wwnlive.com/wrestlecon for the SHIMMER 53 event. First and second row seating is already sold out. Third row ringside seating is still available, priced at $40. General admission seating is also available, priced at $25. The event is suitable for all ages.

SHIMMER 53 will be one of several live pro wrestling events that weekend at the Meadowlands Exposition Center as part of WrestleCon. After the SHIMMER event on April 6th, there will also be full events promoted by both CHIKARA and Dragon Gate USA at the same location. Visit http://www.wrestlecon.com/ for more information on all of the festivities that weekend at the Meadowlands Expo Center.
