taya vs su

Hello again, aiming to publish this after I go to Girl’s Night Out, which you’ll be able to read my recap at my wrestling blog Breaking Treyfabe if you haven’t already but you probably most certainly already have…..RIGHT?!?!!? (bloggers have bigger egos than wrestlers, little known fact) – if you haven’t, check it out here before going any further 

shimmer 91Today’s column is going to focus on one thing – WrestleMania weekend shows in Orlando – not including the WWE related shows because they don’t need my support – I’m an indy wrestling blogger dammit!!!

Do remember – all cards subject to change:

  • On April 1st at 12pm EST we’ve got our favorite women’s fed, SHIMMER, hosting a show that will be featuring the already announced SHIMMER champion Mercedes Martinez, Tessa Blanchard, Mia Yim, Candice LeRae, Leva Bates, Jessicka Havok, Shayna Baszler, Veda Scott, LuFisto, and more…some match announcements include
    • Mercedes defending her title against LeRae

  • Backing up to Thursday, March 30th – Joey Janela’s Spring Break looks to be the early favorite for event of the weekend, no disrespect to all the other companies but c’mon!  Some of the matches featuring women’s wrestlers include:
    • Andy Williams and Penelope Ford against Braxton Sutter and that homewrecker Allie whose recent actions caused the heartbreak of America’s sweetheart Laurel Van Ness
    • A Clusterf&%# match that features Crazy Boy, Jon Silver, Dink, Jervis Cottonbelly, Flip Gordon, Bryan Idol, friggin’ Glacier!, Jimmy Lloyd, all ego Ethan Page, and neon ninja Facade and the woman who will need all of her lives to get through this one – Veda Scott!  I’ve got Veda taking this one!

  • So yeah, I am sure I am missing some events – but this will get you started I hope – if you are a women’s wrestler or run a fed that has women’s wrestling on your card and want to be included in future columns – please reach out to me @treygar on the Twitter
  • In my next column I’m going to talk more about the big waves that RISE and GAIN are making on the wrestling scene, as well as talking some about the overlooked West Coast women’s wrestling scene – especially what them fine folks at Sabotage and AWS have been up to
