MIA YIM ADDED TO SHIMMER 53!
————————————————–

SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is pleased to announce the addition of MIA YIM to the SHIMMER 53 event as part of WrestleCon on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 (the day before WrestleMania 29) in Secaucus, NJ.

[image]

Mia Yim is one of the top young rising stars in professional wrestling, competing as frequently these days in Japan as she does in the United States. Mia has spent the past several months wrestling for the REINA promotion in Japan, a commitment which caused her to be absent from the SHIMMER 49-52 tapings during October in Berwyn. SHIMMER 53 at WrestleCon will see Mia’s return to SHIMMER action.

[image]

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. Visit http://www.wrestlecon.com/ for more information on all of the festivities that weekend at the Meadowlands Expo Center.
