Shimmer 80 iPPV results: Heart of Shimmer champion crowned; Shayna Baszler news


Submitted by Pat Laprade and Craig Russell

- Attendance was roughly 500 fans from Eddie Deen's Ranch, Dallas Texas

12 Woman Tournament to crown the first "Heart Of Shimmer" Champion

1st round

Cheerleader Melissa b Leva Bates with a Kudo Driver. Bates was cosplaying from the Kingdom Hearts video game series

- Candice LaRae b Cherry Bomb when LeRae crucifixed Cherry Bomb's pin attempt and reversed it into a pin of her own.

- Nicole Savoy b LuFisto with the Savoy Lock with a Sambo lock submission. 

- Kimber Lee b Jessicka Havok with a roll up after Cherry Bomb interfered with a Roll Up (with a handful of tights) after Cherry Bomb comes out to distract Havok.

- Heidi Lovelace b Veda Scott with a Senton Bomb off the top rope.

- Nicole Matthews b Crazy Mary Dobson with The Vancouver Maneuver.

2nd round

- Candice LaRae b Cheerleader Melissa with three "Family Show Plexes" in a row. The "Family Show Plex" is what Amber Gertner called the move on the show. The move itself is the "Ball Plex" used by Joey Ryan, but that name could not be used for obvious reasons.

- Nicole Savoy b Kimber Lee with the Cross Arm Breaker.

- Heidi Lovelace b Nicole Matthews with a Senton Bomb off the top rope.

- Lenny Leonard interviewed Shayna Baszler. She said she would start at SHIMMER 81 on June 24. 


- Nicole Savoy b Heidi Lovelace & Candice LaRae to win the Heart title. She first eliminated LaRae with the Savoy Lock. Heidi hit her Senton Bomb with which she won her two matches but Savoy kicked out at 2. Savoy won with her Savoy Lock. Good match. 

- Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke were in attendance for the show. Bayley was also there. They announced that SHIMMER 81-85 were going to be taped from June 24 to June 26 in the Chicago area. 

- Candice LaRae was probably the star of the show with very good matches against both Cherry Bomb and Cheerleader Melissa, plus the main event. Heidi Lovelace has improved so much from the last time I saw her. She's very very solid in the ring. LuFisto vs Savoy was also one of the best matches on the card.
