Welcome back one and all to a column that knows female wrestlers are not just something to lust over but are in fact just as able as their male counterparts to put on an entertaining show, my name is Wayne and you are now entering my world. I have made it no secret throughout my columns this year that I was getting sick of the same old, same old viewing habits in terms of my wrestling fanship this year and have decided to try and branch out past my safe little bubble of WWE and TNA. I have tried out various companies throughout the last few months all who I am more than happy to check out again including Dragon Gate USA and FWE (Family Wrestling Entertainment) and to lesser extents CHIKARA and some Puroresu (Japanese). However the one company that I have grown a passion for beyond any of the others is by far the one I would have considered the least likely for me to when I first started to branch out, that company is SHINE.
For all of you who are unaware of who SHINE are they are an all-women promotion that operates out of Ybor City in Florida. They normally do a show a month which is broadcast live on iPPV at wwnlive.com and then is available on demand from then on in at the same site. They also release the shows on DVD but they tend to come out many months after the show happens. The girls that compete for this company include many of the best female wrestlers who are not currently signed to the WWE or TNA and include ladies who have worked for them before or will in the future. These women are not your usual Diva’s who are given 3 minutes to put on a sloppy match but are in fact able wrestlers who can go out and put on lengthy matches to entertain the crowd.
This Friday SHINE will have their 11th show but it will be the biggest show of their short career as they celebrate their 1st anniversary by crowning their inaugural champion. At the last two shows (April 19 & May 24) 8 qualifying matches were held to determine the women who would participate in a single elimination tournament to crown the first ever SHINE Champion. Well at least that was the plan anyway, things however have been changed due to two qualifiers no longer being available to participate at the show. The first of these two was Allysin Kay who after interfering in the main event of SHINE 10 was suspended for 90 days thus ruling her out of contention for the tournament which is smack bang in the middle of the suspension. The second lady who is no longer available is ex-WWE Women’s Champion Jazz who had to pull out due to an injury. This left the SHINE booking committee with a dilemma as they thus needed to work out who they were going to fill the vacant spots with. Unable to come to a decision an alternative method was decided upon. Two Fatal-4-Way matches have been added to the card from which the two winners will advance into the final 8 later in the show. This now means 14 ladies have a chance on wearing the belt.
To say I am exited for this show is a massive understatement. Me and my SHINE viewing partner (my 11 year old son Zachery) have been eagerly awaiting for this tournament since they announced it back at the beginning of April. The talent involved in this tournament is just phenomenal and could very well be one of the highlights of the year in all of wrestling. What I would like to do now is introduce to you the 14 ladies who will be vying for a chance to be crowned the first ever SHINE Champion.
I am going to start off with the 8 ladies who are vying for the two vacant spots in the final eight and the first of those is a true veteran of the women’s Indy circuit. Mercedes Martinez made her wrestling debut back at the end of 2000 and has spent the years since perfecting her abilities to become one of the greatest female wrestlers in the world today. She perfected it to the point where Pro Wrestling Illustrated placed her 3rd in their top 50 female wrestlers of 2010 list, a ranking she improved to 2nd just one year later in 2011. while her ranking slipped last year she still finds herself in the top 10 with her 9th place ranking.
When I first decided to watch SHINE one of the names that helped me make the decision to give it a go was Mercedes as she was someone of whom I had heard thrown around as being one of the greatest women wrestlers to never have signed with a big company (although she does have a loss to Victoria on an episode of Heat from June 2006 on her record) and I had not seen her wrestle before. She has not disappointed me so far with what I have seen as she has lived up to most of the hype.
Mercedes is 1 of only 5 wrestlers who have had a match at all 10 previous SHINE events (of which after this event will be 1 of 4 as the fifth is the suspended Allysin Kay) which she adds to her experience edge making her a massive threat to win the tournament. She first though needs to shake her poor record at SHINE for in her 10 matches she has had she has only managed to win 5 of them. If anyone has the talent to do so it is Mercedes however there are another 3 women in her first match trying to do the same.
The second wrestler in the first fatal-4-way match is another veteran who also happens to be one of Mercedes biggest rivals in SHINE having a 1-all record with her after they faced each other at SHINE 7 and 8. Nikki Roxx made her wrestling debut in 2002 after being trained by the legendary wrestler Killer Kowalski. Most of you will remember her from her time in TNA where she spent 3 years as part of the Knockout division under the name Roxxi Laveaux.
For those of you who remember her from back then would remember her as ‘The Hardcore Knockout’ due to her apparent love for the more extreme style of wrestling. Well while that side of her character is still there Nikki has become much more than that now being a more polished wrestler in the ring. The years of fighting the best female wrestlers in the world either at TNA or on the independent circuit have made her a great addition to this tournament.
However for Nikki to win the title she needs to get her head in the game as she has only managed to win 2 matches in 7 attempts at SHINE events. I can’t explain why she has had a poor record at SHINE but she really needs to up her game in this tournament as if she wants to win it all and become the inaugaral SHINE champion she will need to string 4 wins together in a row, but if anyone has the talent it is the woman who was once known as ‘The Voodoo Queen’.
Is it just me or does this seem to be a match of the veterans? LuFisto has even been wrestling for longer then her two opponents debuting all the way back in 1997. To be honest I don’t have much to say about this Canadian lady as I have never seen her wrestle before. She has only ever had the one match in SHINE, a losing effort against Ivelisse at SHINE 7, a show I am yet to watch. On a quick search on the trusty web I find that throughout her years of professional wrestling she has accomplished a lot including many wins against her male counterparts in various promotions so I can only assume she is going to bring a lot to this match when the time comes.
LuFisto does have one advantage over her competitors in this first match in that she has not lost a match in this tournament yet. All three of her opponents lost in the qualifying round and that is why we find them here competing for a second chance to get into the match whereas LuFisto was added into this match as a late replacement only this last weekend.
Yes you read that right, a third lady has left the tournament but this one was on their own accord. That lady was Taylor Made, one half of the tag team Made in Sin with suspended Allysin Kay. The reason for Taylors departure from this massive chance, simple, because her partner wasn’t going to be there than neither would she. As for the title she said she doesn’t care as others from their stable Valkyrie were still in and I will talk about them later in this column.
OK our run of veterans in this match has ended with the 4th lady involved being but a youngster at 24 and having only debuted a mere five years ago. However in that time she has shown plenty of potential, enough to have been signed to a developmental contract by the WWE where she wrestled in FCW under the name of Sonia from December 2010 till July 2011 before being released from her contract. But WWE’s loss is everyone elses gain as since her departure from FCW Su has been lighting it up on the Indy Circuit.
I myself had never heard of her before I watched my first SHINE event earlier this year and even if I had heard about her from FCW I wouldn’t have put two and two together and known it was her. What I saw from that show impressed me, enough to say she was the second best of the unknown names from that show. The match she was involved in (against another unknown wrestler to me at the time Brittney Savage) while not being the greatest match on the card was the one that probably surprised me the most for it’s tendency towards submissions.
If that match started me paying attention to Su then her match at the next event made me a fan. While on the losing end of her qualifying match against Saraya Knight it was Su who I believe was the star of the match, holding her own against her more experienced opponent. Once again her prowess at submissions was on show and there was many times where I thought he was actually going to get the win.
While I am certain one of the three veterans will get the win in this match it will be Su Yung who I will be barracking for as I see a very bright future ahead of her. But then again you may never know and Su could very much win as it is her who has the advantage of a better win/loss record in SHINE having won 5 from 8, but then again the class of competitor she is facing now is well above those she has faced before.
Now we move onto the second fatal-4-way match and if the first match was all about the veterans, well this match is about the mega-stars. In fact I will go out of my way and say that if someone is going to win from the fatal-4-way matches then it will be someone from this match, and it could very well be this woman right here. Amazing Kong needs no introduction but there are those out there who may not actually know who she is so an introduction they will get. Kong is the most dominant female wrestler ever, is that good enough?
Anyway Kong debuted back in 2002 and was quickly picked up by the AJW (All-Japan Women’s Pro-Wresstling) and would spend the next 5 years mostly in Japan perfecting her wrestling. In 2007 she debuted in TNA where she would remain until the end of 2010 after having two seperate Knockout Title reigns and one Knockout Tag Title Reign with Hamada. This run in TNA included Pro wrestling Illustrated naming her Woman of the Year for 2008 and ranked her number 1 in their Top 50 Female Wrestlers of the same year.
Kong than moved onto the WWE where she was renamed Kharma and was starting to tear her way through the Diva’s roster when life stepped in the way and she was unable to wrestle. In the end in the whole year and a half that she was in the WWE she only managed to have one match, a being a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble, only the third female to have ever entered, eliminating both Michael Cole and Hunico.
With Kong now back on the Indy circuit she is back to her dominating ways, well at least she is dominating everywhere other than SHINE that is. Kong has unable to get a real bit of momentum going with the company as she has only managed to win her debut match and is currently on a 3-match losing streak. The real big momentum killer though was that at her second match with the company she was the first person taken out by Valkyrie (in what is my 2nd best moment of the year so far) and they have had her number since.
Talking about Valkyrie here is our first of the two members who are still in the tournament (remember Allysin Kay is suspended and Taylor Made pulled out, also April Hunter is not taking part). At a young 25 years of age Ivelisse already has about 10 years of experience, yes you read that correct, she started wrestling back when she was 15 in her home country of Puerto Rico. She is most famous for being one of the contestants in WWE’s Tough Enough from 2011 where she made it to the half way point before having to be forced out due to a leg injury sustained during the competition.
She was however signed to the WWE under a developmental contract after the show and wrestled for FCW/NXT under the name of Sofia Cortez until August last year. She has since had tryouts for TNA including a Gutcheck match on Impact in which she won but was not given a contract. She is also involved in two upcoming One Night Only PPV’s for TNA including being a member of Aces & 8’s in one of them.
As to her time in SHINE it has been a relatively great time for her winning 4 of her 6 matches but more in the fact of her association with the other members of Valkyrie. The group has become a major force in SHINE and all eyes are on Ivelisse as the big breakout star from the group. I really feel that even though there are bigger names in this match it will be Ivelisse that will get the win and give a good shot at winning the title.
Hey I said this Fatal-4-Way was about the mega-stars didn’t I and not many have that status in SHINE than Angelina Love. Another lady who debuted way back in 2000 Angelina has had her opportunities at the big time. In 2004 she signed a developmental deal with the WWE and while she never got to make it onto WWE TV she spent close to 4 years in their developmental territory Deep South Wrestling under the name Angel Williams before her contract was terminated. This allowed her to move over to TNA and the rest is history.
Not long after she signed with TNA she started teaming with Velvet Sky as The Beautiful People and one of the greatest female tag teams was born. They would go on to dominate the Knockout Division for a few years before splitting and feuding. All in all her time in TNA awarded Angelina a total of 5 Knockouts Championships and 1 Tag Team Championship (with Winter) and was the runner-up for both 2009 and 2010 for the Woman of the Year award as awarded by Pro Wrestling Illustrated and was also their number 2 in their top 50 Female Wrestlers for both years.
Coming into SHINE Angelina had made a massive name for herself and was instantly thrown into a mega-star team to face Valkyrie at SHINE 8 in what was a losing effort. This resparked an old rivalry with Rain which led to Rain beating her at the next event to gain entry to this tournament. However at SHINE 10 Angelina was able to beat Rain in a rematch which begs the question, has Angelina finally found what it takes to win at SHINE and have a big chance to win the title or will Valkyrie once again get the best of her?
The last of our 8 competitors vying to get back into the tournament proper and filling out the megastar Fatal-4-Way is someone who you would not actually call a mega-star, in fact in terms of SHINE she is more of a jobber. Don’t get me wrong the girl can get it done in the ring but she was originally known for her losing but in that came her biggest strength.
OK I think I am confusing you a little bit so let me just explain what I mean. Kimberly came into SHINE 1 a relative unknown, yes she had been wrestling since 2007 so had made a small name for herself but compared to others on the card she was no was no where near the same level of star power. In the first match of the night, which therefore was the first ever SHINE match, Kimberly came out on the losing end of the equation. Then she lost at SHINE 2 and then at 3 and then again at 4. All of these losses started to affect Kimberly mentally so she decided to find a tag team partner. After being turned down a few times by potential partners it was her SHINE 3 opponent Leva Bates who would agree to team with her. Their loss at SHINE 5 sent Kimberly over the edge.
The constant losing effected Kimberly’s mind so much she snapped and turned on Leva after the match setting up the biggest and best feud in SHINE so far to date. However this was no longer the same Kimberly any more as she had now completely lost her mind. This change of mental state gave her the edge to get her first win at SHINE 6 when she faced Leva for the second time. They would go on to have three more matches with Leva picking up the win at 7 in a Last Woman Standing Match, Kimberley winning at 8 in an I Quit Match where the fans brought the weapons and Leva winning the last in a Arkham Asylum Steel Cage Match (you had to strap your opponent into a straight jacket to win).
At SHINE 10 Kimberly would lose again in her tournament qualifier making her total record in the company 2 wins from 10 matches (making her 1 of the 5 who have had a match at every SHINE event). While this record doesn’t look good on paper for Kimberly to win this tournament it is all thrown out the window due to just how plainly insane she is, you just have no idea what she is going to do next. Just take her recent example of mind games for starters where she has taken photos of various other tournament entrants boyfriends wearing her new shirt which is available from the SHINE website and posted them on Twitter. Ouch!
We have finally finished going through the ladies who are in the second chance Fatal-4-Way matches and now make our way into the women who won their qualification matches and find themselves already in the final 8, one match closer to the title then those already introduced. The first of the qualifiers is nothing short of a legend on the female indy scene and the oldest lady in the competition. At 41 years of age Sweet Saraya Knight has been in the wrestling business since 1990 debuting in her home country of England making her a real veteran of the squared circle. But don’t let her age fool you as she is still one of the best in the business, just ask Pro Wrestling Illustrated her ranked her 9th last year in the 50 best Female Wrestlers of last year.
Back in April Saraya was unfortunate to lose the SHIMMER Title to Cheerleader Melissa, a title she had held since March the year before. Losing her title though has only lit a fire under Saraya to once again be champion and just a mere two weeks later she beat Su Yung at SHINE 9 to qualify for this tournament in what was one of the matches of the night. Saraya knows what it takes to be champion and will bring that to this tournament in her search for more gold.
Another thing that Saraya brings to this tournament is the fact that she is the first wrestler I have mentioned who is still undefeated at SHINE with a successful defence of her SHIMMER Title against Jazz back at SHINE 4 to add to her win against Su Yung. Can she keep this winning streak alive by adding another 3 names to her list of opponents and thus adding another piece of gold to her cabinet or will someone find what it takes to beat her?
Lastly for those of you keeping score, Saraya’s daughter is currently signed to the WWE and wrestles in NXT under the name of Paige.
I never thought that I would find another female who made an opposing sight as much as Amazing Kong and Chyna do, that was until I saw Jessicka Havok. Standing at 6 foot tall, therefore taller than either the afore mentioned women and weighing in at 170 pounds Jessicka is an impressive sight indeed and as you would expect has the power to back up her size. Having debuted in 2004 Jessicka has been around the block a few times and has made a big name for herself, currently finding herself in the best form of her career. After being ranked 5th in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s top 50 female wrestlers of last year Jessicka has only improved begging the question on just how much better she can get.
I think her SHINE record is a good indication of just how good Jessicka really is. If you have been following the records I have given you so far of the women who I have talked about then you will notice a slight trend, that at best most of them win half the time. Well not Jessicka she has a healthy record of 6 wins from 8 matches with only a double countout with Nikki Roxx and a loss to Reby Sky during their feud blemish that record.
No matter what anyone says about her she is definitely not afraid of a fight. After beating out Madison Eagles to qualify for the tournament (of which I was extremely disappointed as Madison would have been Australia’s chance to have the SHINE champion) at SHINE 9 she then put her spot on the line in a match against Portia Perez at SHINE 10 to stop Portia whining that she hadn’t been given a chance to be part of the tournament by SHINE officials,
Now as to the match in the round of 8 between Jessicka Havoc and Saraya Knight all I can say is we are going to be in for a heck of a fight. Both of these girls bring something to the table which will make it hard for the other to counter, Jessicka with her massive power advantage and Saraya with her distinct experience edge. It is a hard call on who will win but I am definitely barracking for Havok because not only does she impress me with her ability she is also my wife’s favourite SHINE wrestler.
The massive names just keep coming in for this tournament with our next entrant being the lady known as Rain. Like a few of our ladies so far Rain debuted way back in 2000 and has spent all these years becoming the best that she can. Many of you readers may even remember the six months she spent at TNA back between October 2007 and April 2008 while she was managing and teaming with Robert Roode under the name of Payton Banks. However short that TNA stint was it played a part in making Rain a better wrestler and today she shows what the years of hard work has done to get her ready for this tournament.
Though Rain’s years of training is not the only thing she brings to the tournament. As the leader of Valkyrie, SHINE’s heel stable, the company is pretty much her oyster. They have been dominating the roster for pretty much the whole year and look like there is no stopping them in the near future. Even though the two girls from Made in Sin won’t be at the iPPV that still leaves Ivelisse and April Hunter to help watch her back, an advantage that is sure to help her get over in a match if she starts to stumble.
However stumbling is not something you would expect from Rain as shone by her record of 6 wins from 9 SHINE matches (she missed SHINE 6 due to injury) which include singles wins over a few of the best women in the business (Nikki Roxx, Santana, Christina Von Eeerie, Amazing Kong and Angelina Love). It is that last win at SHINE 8 against Angelina Love that saw Rain qualify for this tournament however in a rematch one month later Angelina got the win back however not gaining the spot as it was not on the line.
In the round of 8 Rain would have been scheduled to face Jazz who qualified at SHINE 9 after beating Ivelisse but as stated before had to pull out due to injury. Honestly Rain should feel very relieved as I would have to say Jazz would have been the odds on favourite to win this tournament. While everyone else is making a name for themselves in SHINE it was Jazz who was already the face of the company main eventing the first 5 SHINE shows. It is a real shame she could not take part in this tournament for the title of a company she helped build but it is what it is and it opened up a place for 4 ladies to try to earn there way in. Rain will now face the winner of the Fatal-4-Way between Mercedes Martinez, Nikki Roxx, LuFisto and Su Yung. As I said before I am barracking for Su Yung to win that match but I reckon whoever wins the 4 way will most likely lose to Rain as the benefits of Valkyrie will come into play but also the fact with Rain’s announced retirement happening at the end of the year she has so much more to fight for to go out on a high note being the first ever SHINE Champion.
We now move onto the second side of the brackets and we start of with one of my favourite SHINE wrestlers Leva Bates. Hell it was only yesterday that I bought one of her t-shirts from the SHINE shop (I also bought a Valkyrie one to), the first time I have ever bought any wrestling merchandise straight from an organisation and not just something I found at a shop or on Ebay. While at first I didn’t know what to think of her it didn’t take long for her to grow on me. While it was a great benefit that her original matches I saw were different to normal as they were matches from her feud with Kimberly (the I Quit and Cage matches) it is more about the promos she delivers, easily a few notches above anyone else in the roster.
Leva is a graduate of the 3D Academy (which is of course run by the Dudley Boys/Team 3D) and debuted back in 2006. In May in 2008 she appeared on an episode of Impact as a participant in Awesome Kong’s $25,000 Challenge. Like a few of the other girls in the tournament she is just really starting to find her form and be a real threat to the more established wrestlers. Leva has definitely became one of the more popular wrestlers of SHINE and that is more to do with her out of the ring work as much as her in the ring. While I have already mentioned her promos that is only part of it. Leva’s ring attire is always a tribute to some sort of character, and she even goes as far to mimic certain characteristics of whom she is portraying. I have already seen her take on Scarecrow, The Joker and Bane from Batman (these three make up her shirt I bought), Thing 1 from Cat in the Hat and Tina Turners character from the movie Mad Max 3 just to name a few.
Leva is also the 4th of the 5 wrestlers to have had a match at every SHINE show and has managed to win 5 of them with the last win coming at SHINE 10 when she beat Taylor Made to gain entrance into the tournament. While not the greatest of records it is something she can hopefully turn around to move forward in this title. Win or lose though Leva has already proven how much of an asset she is too shine with the quality of the feud she had with Kimberly throughout this past 6 months.
Our next girl just also happens to be another of our youngest competitors with 24 year old Mia Yim taking centre stage. Only debuting in 2009 Mia has only been in the business for a short time but she has come a long way in that time. She currently finds herself on the ROH roster and also will be on the upcoming TNA Knockouts One Night Only PPV later this year.
So what does Mia bring to the table that other female wrestlers don’t have, well how about the SkyYim? The SkyYim is Mia’s finishing manoeuvre and in reality is actually one of the more phenomenal Corkscrew Moonsaults you have ever seen. This is not the only aerial manoeuvre she has in her arsenal and when watching her matches you are always in for a treat.
Like a few of the other women though Mia lucks out on the win/loss side of things only winning 3 of her 7 SHINE matches to date. However in saying that the only win that really matters is the one that got her into this tournament when at SHINE 10 she beat Mercedes Martinez and earned the spot in the final 8 of the tournament. Another high point in her short career was when she was chosen on the all-star team which included Amazing Kong, Angelina Love and Christina Von Eerie which took on Valkyrie back at SHINE 8.
As to the match up between Mia Yim and Leva Bates in the round of 8, well I have to be honest, I am rooting for Leva all the way. However I know Mia will put in every effort to win and no matter what the result it will be us at home who are the real winners with this match.
When I sat back and watched my first SHINE show earlier this year (SHINE 8) I was impressed with the majority of the show but the one thing that impressed me overall was Santana Garrett. While watching her match both me and my son looked at each other and said this girl needs to be signed by the WWE and needs to be signed now. Santana impressed us that much that we were left shaking our heads thinking why were we only watching her on an Indy show and not on a bigger stage. Nothing we have seen since from her has made us change our mind.
The thing is Santana is really new to the business, well new in the sense she only made her debut back in 2009, she is in fact the daughter of an Indy wrestler who goes by the name of TNT Keny G so is really not that new to it. The fact that she grew up around the business and that she is currently living with ‘The Living Legend’ Larry Zybysko you can start to understand why she has the talent we have already started to see from her. But what is that talent you ask. Well that is quite simple she is one of the more athletic members of the roster doing some fancy moves along the way but she also knows a fair bit of ground game meaning she is a full total package. To top it off she is only 25 and more than likely will get even better. The bigger companies have already had a taste of what she has to offer as she will be appearing on the TNA Knockouts One Night Only PPV later this year.
But how does she stack up in the win department? Well even that is impressive with her winning 7 of her 10 matches within SHINE and with her qualifying win at SHINE 10 over Kimberly she is currently on a singles winning streak in the company of 5. With this sort of momentum there is every chance she could pull out the 3 wins needed to become the first ever SHINE Champion.
Santana was supposed to face Allysin Kay who beat Nikki Roxx at SHINE 10 in the round of 8 but because of Allysin’s suspension she now has to face the winner of the second Fatal-4-way between Amazing Kong, Ivelisse, Angelina Love and Kimberly. While I would love to do the whole fanboy thing and say that Santana will win this match I feel that whoever wins the 4-way will go on to beat Santana. I believe Kong, Angelina and Ivelisse are just to much for Santana at the moment and if Kimberly wins she will exact revenge for her loss in the qualifying stages. However a Leva Bates versus Santana Garrett semi-final will make me a very happy fan.
So there you have it, all 14 participants in the tournament have been introduced to you. The question is however which of these will win and be crowned the first ever SHINE Champion. To be perfectly honest I have no idea who it will be. While I would love for it to be one of my favourites in Leva Bates, Santana or Su Yung I won’t be cross if any of the other 11 win as each has their own reason why they should hold the title. If I have to make a bold prediction though I will have to say that Ivelisse will win the whole thing, possibly even having to beat Rain in the final. However like I said they all deserve the win and I am just happy to see that someone is going to be recognised as the Champion of Shine.
Now as I said before SHINE 11 will be live on iPPV on Friday night (July 7th) with an opening bell time of 9pm EDT time (which corresponds to 11am Saturday morning for me on Australian EST time).
