On Sunday April 12th, 2015 several of the elite women professional wrestlers from Canada competed at the SHIMMER Volume 74 taping from the Berwyn Eagles Club in Berwyn, Illinois. The SHIMMER Champion Nicole Matthews would take on the former champ Madison Eagles. In a shocking turn of events it looked as though Eagles had regained the championship after hitting the champion with her Hellbound finisher. However, after some deliberation it was found that Matthews had her foot on the ropes and thus the match was restarted. This was all the opening that Matthews would need as she would hit Eagles the the Vancouver Maneuver to retain her SHIMMER Championship.
Athena overcame mountainous odds when she would go on to beat Vanessa Kraven, who was accompanied by Tessa Blanchard. After the match the two would cheap shot Athena and leave her laying.
Evie & Heidi Lovelace would help add to Ontario’s Top Team’s (Courtney Rush & Xandra Bale) downward spiral as Lovelace would crash down onto Rush with a frog splash to pick up the victory. After the match the sore loser Rush would attack Bale but luckily Lovelace and Evie would save her from Rush’s onslaught.
Candice LeRae would stun one half of the SHIMMER Tag Team Champions Cherry Bomb by rolling her up in a small package for the 1 2 3.
Portia Perez’s miserable weekend continued as Crazy Mary Dobson would pin her with a quick roll up to secure the win.
