MERCEDES MARTINEZ ADDED TO ALL APRIL SHIMMER EVENTS!

SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is proud announce the addition of “The Latina Sensation” MERCEDES MARTINEZ to all of our April events!

Mercedes Martinez is one of the SHIMMER originals who participated in the very first SHIMMER event in 2005. Mercedes helped put the promotion on the map with her exceptional in-ring skills, as her early rivalry with Sara Del Rey caught the attention of wrestling fans throughout the globe. Subsequent battles against the likes of LuFisto, Wesna Busic, Cheerleader Melissa, Amazing Kong, Ayako Hamada, and countless others helped solidify her position as one of the elite athletes in professional wrestling.

Martinez began to show a more aggressive side and willingness to break the rules during her more recent series of bouts against Athena and fellow SHIMMER original MsChif. Mercedes feels she is at the top of her game in 2013. She will be a part of SHIMMER 53 on April 6th in Secaucus, NJ, as well as SHIMMER 54-57 on April 13th & 14th in Berwyn, IL!

SHIMMER 53 will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (355 Plaza Drive) in Secaucus, NJ. Bell time for this afternoon event is 12pm (Noon).

Tickets are now on sale at http://www.wwnlive.com/wrestlecon for the SHIMMER 53 event. First and second row seating is already sold out. Third row ringside seating is still available, priced at $40. General admission seating is also available, priced at $25. The event is suitable for all ages.

SHIMMER 53 will be one of several live pro wrestling events that weekend at the Meadowlands Exposition Center as part of WrestleCon. After the SHIMMER event on April 6th, there will also be full events promoted by both CHIKARA and Dragon Gate USA at the same location.
