Will there be a roster reveal the week of the Chicago events? Will there be an after party on the Sunday night after Shimmer 85? Just need to know how much money to bring for food and mercy! I can't wait for the Shimmer weekend to begin!

Ah, Donny you beat me to it inquiring about after party status. Also, will the intermission/merch tables work the same at Logan. And finally, Berwyn is rather free in regards to bringing in bags, photo albums, books, random crap, etc. Will Logan be the same? Thanks.
Those who can, "wrestle". Those who can't "sports entertain".

We'll basically post the whole roster for the weekend on Friday afternoon, once everyone is in town. It'll be a roster of around 36 or 37 wrestlers total for the weekend, depending on how things shake out.
Afterparty on Sunday will be at Paisans.
Not sure how strict Logan Square is going to be as far as bringing anything in. It's their rules, and it's the first time we're really dealing with that sort of thing with them.
Ticket orders placed through yesterday (6/15) were mailed earlier this week, and will arrive in the next few days. For those attending AAW, tickets will not be available at the show this weekend. I'll be at the F1RST Wrestling "WrestlePalooza" shows in Iowa and Minnesota. If anyone is still in need of tickets, purchase them online. All orders from here on out will be held for you to claim at the door.

Hot damn the Twitter feed for the shows has been negative as ****. Just the same jackasses obnoxiously bitching and moaning. Doing my bloody head in! Why can't people just enjoy some good wrestling instead of being so negative!? 😣
Edit: That one dude hating on Viper and typing in ALL CAPS LOCK was the worst; what an absolute tool! Not even going to bother looking through the Twitter feed about the show because it'll probably have over 5 trillion comments ALL IN CAPS about how Viper is the worst human being in the entire history of humanity.
Yesterday was my first live SHIMMER show since the vol 53 taping and id say everything was solid at worst. All the champs looked good and there was some notable improvement from some of the younger competitors.
