The first four entrants have been announced - Nikki Storm, Holly Blossom, Rhia O'Reilly and Carmel Jacob. They'll all be in separate matches, Storm and Blossom in the first half of the draw, O'Reilly and Jacob in the other half.
Shanna unfortunately suffered a dislocated shoulder and hyper-extended elbow in a 3-way match with Jenny Sjodin and April Davids Saturday night.
Please send Shanna positive thoughts and hope for a speedy recovery.
Bugger. Shanna's been one of Eve's consistently best wrestlers since her first appearance and her matches are always amongst the highlights of every show she's been on to date. Hope she's not out too long.

Before you pay, you see how much Paypal will withdraw from your account in your main currency. If there is an exchange fee, it's part of the calculation (thus the exchange rate is a little bit worse than the official).
First two first round matches announced - Nikki Storm vs. Hannah Blossom, and Rhia O'Reilly vs. April Davids.
Nikki seems likely to progress, although it'll be a shame to only see the Blossoms in (potentially) one match each on their debut Eve show. Naturally, that depends on how Holly fares. And maybe we'll get a tag match too, at some point outside of the tourney.
I really, really hope Rhia wins; for two reasons. Firstly I think Rhia deserves a proper title shot, ideally back as a face. Yeah, I know she had one at the first Eve/ice Ribbon show, but it was way down the card and pretty out of the blue.
Secondly, I know I'm in the minority, but I really don't want a Sjodin/Davids rematch (assuming Jenny retains, of course!) No denying either woman's ability in the ring, I just find their matches all sports and no entertainment.
And fingers crossed we'll be seeing Kirsty and Viper back too.
