The wrestecon show was my first Shimmer show - really enjoyable. I bought the DVD's of Shimmer 49 & 50 while I was there - watched them while I was on vacation this past week and enjoyed those as well. I thought they were exceptionally well done for indie DVD's, especially the commentary interaction of Dave P & Portia Perez, who I find to be just hilarious. She's a GREAT heel commentator, manages to mix in objective comments on the action without losing character, which is something that the top professional commentators haven't found that easy to do.
One thing that strikes me about Shimmer is the intelligent booking of matches and the way that the booking of matches protects and builds up the newer wrestlers. That again is something that the top professional organizations don't do well at all. Rock on, all!
