(Thoughts: Another really good outing from Santana here. She keeps getting better with every SHINE show and has become by far, the most over home-grown SHINE act that they have currently. As for Sojo, she put on IMO her best performance to date in SHINE, really doing well with playing to the crowd and being a nice heel base for Santana to work off of when she made her comebacks. Best match of the show so far. )
A music video is played as somewhat of an intermission before our next match.

Winner: “The Latina Sensation” Mercedes Martinez by pinfall (Fisherman’s Buster)
(Thoughts: Another good match from these two. Obviously from the previous month where Mercedes had banged up her shoulder, they had more time here to put together a good back & forth match. Roxx lost nothing in losing because it took Mercedes to cheat to get her win back. Rubber match at SHINE 9, maybe? I’m down for that. Good stuff again from these two. )
Afterwards, we hear some commotion in the back of the Orpheum as Leva Bates & Kimberly are brawling, not wanting to waste anytime in getting their match started, leading to…..

Kimberly DRILLS LEVA MULTIPLE TIMES IN THE HEAD WITH THE COOKIE SHEET, but she refuses to quit. The ref pulls Kimberly back as he checks on Leva.
The ref then has no choice but to stop the match as Leva did not quit, but could not continue.
Winner: Kimberly via referee stoppage
An unconscious Leva has to be helped to the back as Kimberly is crazier than ever after winning this match.
(Thoughts: Holy COW! What a phenomenal brawl from these two. The escalation of violence from the 1st match at SHINE #6 kept picking up and picking up til we got to this. Leva as Bane worked like a charm and both women put it all on the line with some very vicious bumps. Some may downgrade the match with the chair & cookie sheet shots to the head, but if you are gonna do that at anytime, this was the time to do it. The finish was really well done to protect Leva in losing as she didn’t quit, but the ref was forced to stop it. My hats off to both women on without a doubt, the best match on the show and IMO, the best match that SHINE was produced so far. )
A video package is played before our next match.

Winner: Reby Sky by pinfall (Twist of Fate on a Chair)
Afterwards, Havok gets on the mic and shakes Reby’s hand, saying that while she respects her, it does not mean she has to like her and tells Reby to watch her back before leaving.
(Thoughts: The best match of their 3 matches in SHINE. Havok did a great job as the confident heel who every time Reby would try and start something, Havok would ALWAYS have an answer to cut her off. Havok continues to show great stuff with her playing to the crowd and trash-talking Reby throughout the match. I also thought this was Reby’s best performance to date. Yes, she may not have a lot of experience in the ring, but my god is she great on the selling end with drawing people in to want to get behind her. That will do her wonders going forward in her career. The finish was good as it gave Reby her break-out win and in a way a comeuppance for Havok as this whole thing started with Havok using a chair to injure Reby at SHINE 2, but it leading to her downfall in defeat. However, Havok lost nothing in defeat because it took the use of a chair to defeat her. Great job from both women in this match. )

(Thoughts: Very chaotic, but fun main event brawl. All 8 women worked very hard and took some pretty stiff bumps once they went to brawling on the outside towards the end of the match. VALKYRIE was right to go over as they needed to stay dominant, although the baby-face team gave them a real run for their money. Really enjoyed the members of Valkyrie cutting promos before the match. Wish they had done that on the last show, but they did a good job at getting heat prior to the match. Once again, some may have a problem with the chairshots to the head, but I had zero problem with it. Ivelisse getting laid to waste afterwards I would assume leads to her exit from SHINE because of her working some of the TNA One Night Only PPVs last week. However, I could definitely be wrong. But overall, the post-match was good to get the faces their heat to lead into the next show. To summarize, very chaotic, but fun main event.)
Overall, SHINE #8 had a solid undercard, but the top half of the show delivered in a big way. The Reby-Havok, Leva-Kimberly & 8-Woman Tag matches are worth the price of the iPPV replay.
SHINE #8 Grade: A-
That will do it for me on the SHINE #8 iPPV recap, have a great weekend!
