History will be made on Saturday afternoon, April 2nd in Dallas, as the all female promotion SHIMMER Women Athletes presents SHIMMER 80 as part of the WWN Live Experience! The event will feature a twelve woman single elimination tournament to crown the inaugural holder of the Heart of SHIMMER Championship! SHIMMER 80 will be held at Eddie Deen’s Ranch (944 S. Lamar Street) in Dallas, TX. Bell time is 4pm Central. The event will also be available as a live iPPV at and after the fact at

During SHIMMER’s first 10 years of operation, two SHIMMER championships were established. SHIMMER 11 & 12 in 2007 featured a two day SHIMMER Championship tournament, while SHIMMER 21 in 2008 included a gauntlet to determine the first SHIMMER Tag Team Champions. With SHIMMER’s notoriously large roster of female professional wrestlers from around the world, a third championship added to the mix will provide the athletes on the roster with a new goal to achieve during year 11 and beyond!

The tournament will feature the same structure as the ChickFight tournament last year in San Jose and the Volcano Girls tournament back in 2004. Fans in Dallas for SHIMMER 80 will see six first round tournament matches, three second round matches, and a three-way elimination tournament final bout to determine the first Heart of SHIMMER Champion!

The first six of the twelve tournament participants have already been announced.

As part of the SHIMMER 10th Anniversary weekend festivities, a Question & Answer session with the wrestlers was held at Cigars & Stripes in Berwyn, IL. The Q&A took place on Saturday, October 10, 2015, with Amber Gertner serving as moderator. She fielded questions from the intoxicated SHIMMER fans in attendance, as the SHIMMER crew downed a few themselves. While SHIMMER events are typically a “family show,” that was not necessarily true for this Q&A session, where the alcohol was certainly flowing!

Q&A Participants: Madison Eagles, Kellie Skater, Shazza McKenzie, Jessicka Havok, Mia Yim, Leva Bates, Heidi Lovelace, Portia Perez, Nicole Matthews, Kimber Lee, Cherry Bomb, Tessa Blanchard, Vanessa Kraven, Veda Scott, Kay Lee Ray, Rhia O’Reilly, Saraya Knight, Courtney Rush, Allysin Kay, Evie, LuFisto, Cheerleader Melissa, Lexie Fyfe, and Allison Danger.
