They already named Sage but seemingly realised that TM61's Nick Miller still exists:

Bryan Alvarez said on WOL there's 5 slots vacant in the MYC.

People are meant to report to Orlando on Monday.

In WWE's defence I will say I do know of one major injury to a well known name.

They've only announced ~15 of the competitors for this so far.

I assume the plan is to keep announcing them in bits until the air date, even though I guess spoilers will give all the names this week since it films Thursday.

Demi is pretty good although I've only seen her maybe half a dozen times. She is also surprisingly younger than I expected as I figured she was about 24 since she's been about for a while now.

Yeah, Shanna cut a promo setting that up at the 1st Ring show after the tag match she had with Gabby Ortiz against Hana Kimura and Kagetsu. Also, Stardom is starting to promote their "New Era" on Twitter so that's probably part of it.

Also Shanna and Gabby gave me a high five after the show when I told them it was my first live wrestling experience.

you probably didn't ask if Gabby why her top makes it looks like her nipples are pierced. Which is for the best.

One of the stand outs from this past SHIMMER weekend was Deonna Purrazzo. She beat Cheerleader Melissa and Cherry Bomb before losing to Hudson Envy, Nicole Matthews, and Nicole Savoy.

Also, Britt Baker did not leave immediately after the shows like most of them did. WWE Medicals for the MYC were today,so I guess Britt won't be in it.

I have altered my retirement plans. Pray I do not alter them any further.


I was kind of surprised that Tessa Blanchard retained the Shimmer Tag Titles. I'd just assumed she was going to get signed with the rest of this swath after the Mae Young Classic.

Tessa was amazing all weekend. There was a little girl in the crowd both days and her and Tessa went back and forth all weekend long. It was great. At one point Tessa told her t-shirt made her look fat. Tessa was by far the most over heel of the tapings. Reminded me a lot of Alexa Bliss. When they finally do lose the tag titles, Kraven is gonna get cheered massively when she turns on Tessa. It will be glorious.

Yes. She's been dubbed SHIMIzzy.

And yeah, Charli Evans and Jessica Troy were awesome. Charli Evans spent the entire weekend flipping my hat off. It was a running gag for 3 straight days. They are both really cool. I think they will be the new Kimber Bombs by the next set of tapings in November.

The only person injured right now though who was supposed to participate was Nixon Newell. Io Shirai was never going to be part of the tournament, even if she didn't have a neck injury, and I haven't heard of any other injuries to the participants.

Nixon's last few matches on the indies were something I had never seen before from a signed talent. Shooting star presses to the floor and stuff. Her shoulder is very bad too. I hope she isn't physically breaking down already.

Of note during SHIMMER, there wasn't any crazy brawls or weapons based matches. No "around the arena" fights. Not even that many dives to the outside really. Not saying it wasn't good, because it was, but it was def more "controlled" than normal SHIMMER weekends.

Another name we can confirm is undergoing medical testing is Deonna Purrazzo.

Deonna Purrazzo is no stranger to the WWE Performance Center as she has had a WWE Tryout back in February of 2016. The 23 year old has also competed on NXT as enhancement talent as well as appearing on SmackDown Live facing Alexa Bliss.

Purrazzo has also appeared for IMPACT, losing a singles match against Brooke at Knockouts Knockdown II. Deonna returned to TNA on January 8, 2016 at the One Night Only: Live PPV and participated in a #1 Contenderís Gauntlet Match, where she was eliminated by Awesome Kong. She made a third appearance on March 17, 2016 at Knockouts Knockdown IV where she lost to Madison Rayne. On January 19, 2017, episode of Impact Wrestling, Purrazzo faced Brooke in a losing effort.

Recently Purrazzo has returned from a stay with STARDOM in Japan. Just this past weekend Deonna made her SHIMMER debut.

http://squaredcirclesirens.com/poss...classic-name-2/

Used to think I was biased toward Deonna and I am likely still am due to stumbling upon her matches at an early stage, following her rapid improvement and getting to know her generally. But then as time went on she has gotten strong notices by fans, promoters and other wrestlers. The amount and scope of Wrestling people who have praised her or follow her on social media is really cool. Her popularity and how good of a wrestler she is probably better within the industry than with fans I hope the MYC changes that. Also stops her being typecast as enhancement talent.

Expect the choice of alternates and the first round losers to be pretty controversial. Doesn't seem to be as well judged as the CWC IMO.

It looks like Stardom might start sticking free matches up on YouTube. I'm not sure that this isn't a one off but this is a fairly nothing match to put up. Saying that Jungle Kyona is probably a good combination of entertaining gimmick and in ring ability to draw people in.
