I haven't seen anything on here about this yet so I figured I'd make a topic.

SHINE will be a sister promotion to SHIMMER and run regular shows on iPPV, the first of which will be on July 20th. The first match announced for the show is Jazz versus Sara Del Rey and you can see some of the other talent involved on the poster below:

Its odd, even though Shimmer is supposed to be the cream of the crop when it comes to American female wrestling...it still feels so many levels below what you get with Joshi. I may still check it out when Daffney is on the card, but i won't expect much.

I love watching so many of the women on that poster, that it'll be hard to go without this, since it could be pretty expensive depending on how frequent shows are :(

The problem is trying to compare the two in the first place. There is way too many differences from the training regime, to shows, to schedules, to match times, to styles etc US womens wrestling and Japanese womens wrestling have never been "on the same level", but that doesn't necessarily mean one style is better than the other. They're all just different shades of the same color and it all comes down to personal preference. I can watch and appreciate good womens wrestling no matter what country/style (except deathmatches), and idk about you, but style clashes in wrestling is one of my favorite things to watch.

As long as it gives more women opportunity for work, I'm all for it. The roster is near perfect, a great mix of wrestlers.

I can't imagine anyone would watch any American female wrestling, then watch a Joshi match, and think the two were similar beyond them containing females. Even among the best female wrestlers in America, they move quite slow and the average match comes off like an imitation version of what the males do in the ring. I watch a Joshi match and don't even think of them as female wrestlers, because they perform at a level that doesn't make them seem so many levels below the males; i wish i could say the same for N.American women's wrestling.

So far with the posters and the wrestlers involved, this promotion seems to have MONEY!!!

So far I like it and Sara Del Rey vs Jazz is very intriguing to buy it. I hope we get to see pictures of what their ring and stage looks like

I always thought NCW Femmes Fatales was very close to Shimmer, it's got quite a lot of the Shimmer talent and it's definitley the Shimmer of Canada. I've always thought some of Canadian wrestling was closer to the Japanese style than any other country.

And NCW recently had the Shimmer Tag Titles on the line recently

Well if the women on the poster will be included in the show, I'd watch it. I haven't seen Daphney in some time.

lol again it's just a style difference. Unless they adopt the same dojo/training system and there are actually places for women to work 4-6 shows every week, then things aren't going to change. Most, if not all, indy wrestlers have regular 9-5's and work a show once every weekend or not even that, since work is quite sporadic especially for females. In Japan, wrestling is your occupation and you're training/wrestling pretty much 24/7. Outside of WWE, there's not enough funding to run all-women training camps and all-women shows week in and week out. Neither SHIMMER, WSU or NCW: Femme Fatales run as often as say, JWP, Sendai or even Ice Ribbon.

I LOVE SHINE :) The only thing that sucks a little is they are a little slow with the shipping of the Dvds

I love SHINE too and can't wait for tonight! :D
Already watched SHINE 5 which had great matches.
They have the most awesome roster of female talent, great matches, good commentary and Daffney as the host is hilarious. :)

SHINE 6 tonight!
I already know that I'll love it, Mercedes, Santana, Ivelisse, Kong, Kimberly, Veda and more!

Also wonder if Chairs will be involved again! ;)
