Cat Power and Dust are the Last 2 Names for Shimmer Volume 5!

The last two woman athletes in the SHIMMER Volume 5 game pack are two women’s wrestling veterans, Cat Power and Dust!

Cat Power made her SHIMMER debut back on SHIMMER 18 in 2008.  The feline powerhouse wrestles primarily in her home country of Canada, but has also performed on a few tours of Japan.  She has had a solid record in her SHIMMER career and even challenged Kelly Skater for the SHIMMER championship on SHIMMER 89.  Cat Power looks to continue to inflict punishment onto the SHIMMER roster at the upcoming set of SHIMMER tapings.

Dust has been wrestling since 2007, but didn’t make her SHIMMER debut until SHIMMER 86 in 2016.  Despite being a successful singles wrestler for most of her career, she is now well known for being half of the Paradise Lost tag team with Courtney Rush.  Together this demonic duo has terrorized the women’s tag team scene for most of 2017.  The duo challenged for the SHIMMER tag team titles in a 4-way match on SHIMMER 95 and look to get back into contention during the upcoming SHIMMER tapings.

Cat Power and Dust join Tessa Blanchard, Shotzi Blackheart, Britt Baker, Chelsea Green, Hudson Envy and Samantha Heights in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at the SHIMMER tapings on November 11th-12th.  You can pre order Shimmer Volume 5 right now by going HERE and CZW Set 5 by going HERE.

CZW Champion Shane Strickland Caps Off CZW Set 5!

2017 has been the year of Shane Strickland.  This year in CZW he made it to the Best of the Best finals, and picked up wins over CZW legends Sami Callihan and Masada.  King Swerve has won championships in multiple promotions in 2017, but perhaps none bigger than winning the CZW championship in July.  He outlasted Davey Richards, Joe Gacy and Lio Rush in an epic 4-way to win the championship.  Shane looks to continue his winning ways at Night of Infamy in a CZW Rules match against former champion Joe Gacy.  But this champion is known for his high-flying talent, the charisma he oozes and his ability to adapt to any kind of match, so the odds always seem to be in his favor.

Shane Strickland joins Sami Callihan, MJF, Ace Romero, CCK and the Rep in the 5th CZW expansion.  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at CZW Night of Infamy on November 11th.  You can pre-order CZW Set 5 right now by going HERE and the Shimmer Volume 5 game by going HERE.

Tessa Blanchard Joins the Shimmer Game Roster!

The latest woman to join the SHIMMER Volume 5 roster is one of the most requested names from game fans, and one of the hottest names in independent women’s wrestling, Tessa Blanchard!  Tessa was born from wrestling royalty as a third generation wrestler and was trained by her famous father.  But Tessa has gone beyond her family name to prove that she is one of the one of the most talented wrestlers going today.  She wants everyone to remember that “Tessa is Forever.”

Blanchard has been part of SHIMMER since 2015, when she debuted at SHIMMER 73 defeating Athena.  She went on to have a stellar singles run in 2016 and challenged Madison Eagles for the SHIMMER championship.  However, she may be most known recently in SHIMMER as one half of the dominating tag team Mount Tessa with Vanessa Kraven.  The duo won the SHIMMER tag team titles at SHIMMER 89 from Heidi Lovelace and Evie.  They have gone on to defend them numerous times against all of the best SHIMMER has to offer by any means necessary.  Will someone finally dethrone them at the upcoming SHIMMER weekend?

Tessa Blanchard joins Shotzi Blackheart, Britt Baker, Chelsea Green, Hudson Envy and Samantha Heights in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at the SHIMMER tapings on November 11th-12th.  You can pre order Shimmer Volume 5 right now by going HERE and CZW Set 5 by going HERE.

Shut up Lykos! The CCK are in the CZW Game!

The latest duo that will be part of the Combat Zone Wrestling set are the current CZW tag team champions, Chris Brookes and Kid Lykos!  The Calamari Catch Kings, or CCK for short, are the hottest tag team on the British independent circuit.  Their tandem offense is mind blowing and they have wrestled and beaten many of the top tag teams on the European continent.  In fact, the duo won the CZW tag team titles in Birmingham England from Scarlet and Graves on a non-CZW show.  They have gone on to defend the CZW tag team titles multiple times in multiple promotions throughout England.  Now that The Rep have won the top contendership to the titles, they are insisting that the CCK make their CZW debut and defend the titles in America.  Whenever this encounter happens it is bound to be exciting!

The CCK joins Sami Callihan, MJF, Ace Romero and the Rep in the 5th CZW expansion.  The game begins mailing on November 14th and will be available at CZW Night of Infamy on November 11th.  You can pre order CZW Set 5 right now by going HERE and the Shimmer Volume 5 game by going HERE.

Ace Romero Barges His Way Into CZW Game

The latest addition to the CZW game is one of the Combat Zone’s newest competitors and certainly one of its largest.  But don’t let Ace Romero’s size fool you, he is insanely agile for his size and is out to prove himself to the CZW faithful.

Acey Baby comes from Maine and wrestled all over the New England scene before making his CZW debut in July.  He surprised many by winning the 10-man Aerial Assault match in August, which earned him a CZW Wired title shot in September.  Unfortunately that title opportunity was spoiled by Greg Excellent, who took exception to Romero joining CZW as another big man.  Their first Hoss Battle ended in a no contest, but this rivalry is just getting started!

Ace Romero joins Sami Callihan, MJF and The Rep in the newest CZW expansion.  Keep an eye out the rest of October for more names in the CZW 5th edition game pack.  The game will be released in early November and will be available at the Night of Infamy show on November 11th. Preorder begins next week!

Shotzi Blackheart Brings Her Energy to SHIMMER Game

The latest entry into the Shimmer Volume 5 set is the Ballsy Badass herself Shotzi Blackheart!

Shotzi has a unique look and a fierce attitude, and always gets the crowd fired up.  This fearless competitor first made her name in the Northern California wrestling scene, but has recently blossomed more onto the national scene.  Shotzi made her SHIMMER debut in November 2016 after an impressive showing on the inaugural RISE card the day before.  Shotzi went onto win the Phoenix of RISE title in March and defend it against all challengers, including Hudson Envy on SHIMMER 92.  That same weekend Blackheart also picked up impressive wins over Veda Scott and former SHIMMER champion Cheerleader Melissa.  There is no telling the heights that Shotzi Blackheart will continue to reach in women’s wrestling.

Shotzi Blackheart joins Britt Baker, Chelsea Green, Hudson Envy and Samantha Heights in the newest edition of the SHIMMER game.  Watch in the coming weeks for more names in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game will be available in early November and also at the SHIMMER tapings in Chicago on November 11-12.  Preorder begins next week!

Fire and Nice Have Their Eyes on SHIMMER Tag Team Title!

Look out SHIMMER tag teams, a new duo is on the rise and have their eyes set on tag team gold.  Britt Baker and Chelsea Green both made their SHIMMER debuts in 2017 and have already taken the promotion by storm. The duo started their careers on opposite sides of the continent, with Britt Baker starting out in Western Pennsylvania and Chelsea Green starting her career in Western Canada.  Each had some success individually and have made appearances on national television prior to starting with SHIMMER.

Britt Baker made her SHIMMER debut as a singles wrestler, winning her debut 4-way in Orlando earlier this year.  She began teaming with Chelsea Green in the RISE promotion, dubbing themselves Fire and Nice, and the duo continued the partnership during the last set of SHIMMER tapings.  The duo’s early success earned them a shot at the SHIMMER tag team champions, and Fire and Nice won the match…albeit by disqualification.  It’s only a matter of time before Britt and Chelsea earn another shot at the belts and hopefully the next shot ends with gold around their waists.

Britt Baker and Chelsea Green join Hudson Envy and Samantha Heights in the newest edition of the SHIMMER game.  Watch in the coming weeks for more names in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game will be available in early November and also at the SHIMMER tapings in Chicago on November 11-12.

Nate Carter and Dave McCall Are Building Their Rep in CZW

At the first CZW Dojo Wars show Nate Carter and Dave McCall came together to form the tag team the Dub Boys.  Their success in Dojo Wars earned them a spot on the main CZW roster.  However, after building some experience against some of the top teams in CZW, the duo felt they did not get the respect they deserved and now feel they need to go out and get what is owed to them.

Carter and McCall dropped the Dub Boy moniker and now go by The Rep, since that is the only thing that matters in making your way to the top. The duo got irate the CZW Tag team Championships remain in the UK, and voiced their displeasure to the CZW crowd before being confronted by CZW Vice President Maven Bentley, who made a special match.  In September The Rep won the Chri$ Ca$h Memorial Ladder Match at Down With The Sickness to earn the top contendership to the CZW tag team titles.  Now their await their title opportunity and look to prove what they have felt all along, that they are the top tag team in CZW!

The Rep joins Sami Callihan and MJF in the newest CZW expansion.  Keep an eye out the rest of October for more names in the CZW 5th Edition game pack.  The game will be released in early November and will be available at the Night of Infamy show on November 11th.

Samantha Heights Joins the Shimmer Game Roster!

The latest name to join the Shimmer game roster is one of the brightest prospects out of the midwest, Samantha Heights.  Samantha was trained in the OI4K wrestling academy by Dave Crist, so obviously she has no problem taking daredevil-like risks when she needs to!

Heights made her Shimmer debut back in June 2016 tagging with Crazy Mary Dobson, but since then has wrestled only in singles matches.  Although her win-loss record hasn’t been the best, she has boosted her name by going toe-to-toe with some of the best women’ wrestlers in the world like Kimber Lee, Nicole Matthews, Allysin Kay and Cheerleader Melissa.  It’s only a matter of time before she gains the experience she needs to become a major force in the Shimmer ring.

Samantha Heights joins Hudson Envy in this 5th edition of the SHIMMER game.  Be watching in the coming weeks for more names in SHIMMER Volume 5!  The game will be available in early November and also at the SHIMMER tapings in Chicago on November 11-12.

The Worldwide Desperado Returns to the CZW Game

For a couple years CZW was without one of its most dynamic performers, but at Cage of Death 2015 the Callihan Death Machine made his triumphant return!

Sami Callihan had a period away from the independent wrestling circuit, but since his return has been taking it by storm and traveling far and wide on his quest to be known as the Best Wrestler in the World.  The Ohio Native has made waves throughout the indies, but of course nowhere is his influence felt stronger than in CZW.  He has once again hooked up with Jake and Dave Crist as part of OI4K, so there is no telling what mayhem this group will inflict on the CZW roster!

Sami Callihan joins MJF in the 5th Edition of the CZW game.  Keep an eye out the rest of October for more names in the CZW 5th Edition game pack.  The game will be released in early November and will be available at the November 11th show entitled Hot Buzz.
