SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is pleased to announce the addition of RYO MIZUNAMI to its October 27th & 28th weekend of events at the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL! Volumes 49-52 of the SHIMMER series will be filmed during the course of that weekend.

Ryo Mizunami comes to us from the Pro-Wrestling WAVE promotion in Japan, through the assistance of the Joshi 4 Hope office. Mizunami made her wrestling debut in 2004 for GAEA, but would later get the bulk of her early experience under the guidance of Meiko Satomura at SENDAI Girls’ Pro-Wrestling beginning in 2007. Known for her strength, Mizunami has an array of suplexes in her arsenal, including a very effective Uranage. Not only will Mizunami be a part of SHIMMER 49-52 in Berwyn, but she will also participate in NCW Femmes Fatales X on November 3rd in Montreal to complete her first tour of North America.

Visit to view Mizunami’s WAVE profile.

Mizunami joins the following previously announced competitors who will participate in the SHIMMER 49-52 tapings: SHIMMER Champion Sweet Saraya Knight, SHIMMER Tag Team Champions The Canadian Ninjas, Cheerleader Melissa, MsChif, Mercedes Martinez, Allison Danger, Leva Bates, and Hiroyo Matsumoto. Look for more names to slowly be revealed during the remaining weeks leading up to the events. Over 25 of the top female wrestlers from around the world will be a part of the festivities!

General admission tickets for the SHIMMER 49-52 events are still available, and can be purchased online right now by visiting and ordering by PayPal. If you would like to purchase tickets via money order, please E-mail for mail order instructions.

In addition to SHIMMER 49-53 on October 27th & 28th at the Berwyn Eagles Club, our friends at AAW: Professional Wrestling Redefined will present “War Is Coming” in Berwyn that Friday night, October 26th. Already signed is a SHIMMER Title Match pitting Saraya Knight against former SHIMMER Champion MsChif! Also announced so far are Athena and Christina Von Eerie.

!BANG! TV Report – Press Conference from the Ocala, Hilton Hotel for Brisco and Nishimura

Osamu Nishimura and Jerry Brisco were featured subjects of a Press Conference held at the beautiful Hilton Hotel of Ocala, Florida.

Osamu Nishimura was here Saturday and watched Funking Conservatory Athletes perform. Nishimura officiated the Main Event, Cory “Wild” Weston vs Shane Chung.
