Along with WrestleMania, WrestleCon is next weekend as well. Is anyone here ordering any shows on iPPV or actually attending WrestleCon? The con itself features vendors and personalities from throughout the wrestling world with CHIKARA, CZW, Shimmer, DG-USA, Kaiju Big Battel & $5 Wrestling running shows during the con. ROH is running stand alone shows nearby on Friday & Saturday as well. General Con info: http://www.wrestlecon.com/program/
Personally I've ordered the Shimmer iPPV, which has a stacked card lined up with talent from Japan, Australia,Canada, the U.S. & Europe. I'm really looking forward to seeing this show, I know it'll be off the hook. The announced card:
SHIMMER Championship/Steel Cage Match (Champion) Saraya Knight vs. Cheerleader Melissa (Note that Saraya Knight is the current champion, but is defending the Title tonight in Canada vs. Lufisto at NCW-FF. If Lufisto wins, the cage match itself goes on as planned )
Rematch from SHIMMER 52 Ayako Hamada vs. "The Wrestling Goddess" Athena
Rematch of SHIMMER 35 Main Event Madison Eagles vs. "Everybody's Favorite Girlfriend" Jessie McKay
Ayumi Kurihara vs. "The Latina Sensation" Mercedes Martinez
Amazing Kong vs. Mia Yim
Plus, also announced thus far...
SHIMMER Tag Team Champions The Canadian Ninjas Serena Deeb "The World Famous" Kana Tomoka Nakagawa "Regeneration X" Allison Danger & Leva Bates Christina Von Eerie "Rate Tank" Kellie Skater "Made In Sin" Taylor Made & Allysin Kay Veda Scott & Shazza McKenzie Rhia O'Reilly Evie Cherry Bomb Kimber Lee
I've been a wrestling fan for almost 15 years and I have never seen a period like the past couple years where SO MANY wrestlers have died. It seems like Dave Meltzer is writing a Tribute every few weeks.
