SHIMMER And RISE Postponed

SHIMMER announced this evening that their 3/28/20 and 3/29/20 shows in Berwyn, Illinois have been postponed and will be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined.

No word yet on the 4/3/20 SHIMMER event during Wrestlemania Week in Tampa, but I can’t see how that goes on either with the Coronavirus.

RISE announced days ago that their 3/27/20 date, which was also scheduled in Berwyn, is postponed. That show was allegedly supposed to be the company’s last live event due to financial reasons. However, they announced “Pride and Joy 2” which will be co-promoted with Freelance Wrestling on 6/28/20 in Chicago during the Pride festivities in the city.

SHINE 65 Results 2/29/20

SHINE 65 results from Woodside, N.Y., USA 🇺🇸 at La Boom on 2/29/20 and live on FITE TV (and Club WWN)

Trevin Adams and Lenny Leonard are the announcers.

La Rosa Negra pinned Jay Raves after the Flying La Rosa. Ayla Fox was scouting the match. She needs new people to represent with Big Swole in AEW and Aja Perera (aka Aja Smith) in WWE NXT now. Negra showed sportsmanship after the match as she put Raves up on her shoulders and danced.

Candy Cartwright pinned Vipress by holding the tights.

Jenna went to a Double Disqualification with Double D’Rose when they both hit the referee and continued to brawl. Ayala Fox was scouting this match too.

Alex Gracia pinned Stormie Lee with a cradle. Brandi Lauren tried to distract the referee but it didn’t work. Gracia was attacked by Lauren after the match. Lauren put her in the Rings of Lauren and Natalia Markova made the save to set up the next match.

SHINE Nova Champion Natalia Markova beat Brandi Lauren by Disqualification when Stormie Lee ran in and attacked Markova just as she was about to pin Lauren. Lauren then put Markova in the Rings of Lauren until a few other referees came out to help break it up.

SHINE Tag Team Champions Marti Belle and Jayme Jameson beat Avery Taylor and Brittany Blake when Blake was pinned after she accidentally kicked Taylor and got caught with Belle and Jameson’s double team finisher.

SHINE Tag Team Champion Ivelisse pinned Lindsay Snow after the rolling snapmare and kick to the face. Jake Clemons was the referee. He was the heel referee on WWE Raw last week who cost Kevin Owens the match against Randy Orton. The announcers joked that they were glad he can count fair and evenly again but they wouldn’t elaborate because WWE didn’t acknowledge who he was on Raw.

They announced a return date to the venue on 6/13/20.

Thanks to Steve Grant for the initial quick results of this report.

SHINE Mini Show Results 1/18/20: Title Change

SHINE results from Fern Park, Florida at the Orlando Live Events on 1/18/20. This was the pre-show to EVOLVE 144 this evening:

Stormie Lee pinned Alyx Sky.

Nova Champion Natalia Markova beat Jenna by submission with a cross arm breaker.

After the match, Brandi Lauren came to the ring and demanded Markova hand the title over to her. Markova refused and Stormie Lee jumped her with a chair to help Lauren. Avery Taylor made the save.

Marti Belle and Jayme Jameson won the SHINE Tag Team Titles from Big Swole and Aja Perera. Brandi Lauren and Stormie Lee came out and attacked Ayla Fox at ringside which caused a distraction and allowed Big Swole to be pinned. The title change wasn’t a surprise because Swole is now with AEW and she probably needed to drop the title.

Head over to our friends at PW Insider for EVOLVE coverage because I am covering Queens Of The Ring 2 on YouTube which is running against it.

I know I said last year that I would be abandoning coverage of SHINE. I had a change of heart when I saw how much website traffic each of their events bring in to this website.
