I highly highly doubt I'd be able to make it, especially with SHIMMER taking place the next weekend (and even that might be difficult due to if the Wild make the playoffs or not) so I really hope that the iPPV route is able to be pulled off.
I was already planning on attending the Highspots three-day convention and some of the Axxess sessions. I'll definitely go to the Shimmer show too. I wasn't anticipating going to any of the live wrestling shows, but Shimmer will be awesome. I'm hoping we'll get to see some of the wrestlers who aren't in the Northeast much -- Nicole Matthews, Jessie McKay, Cherry Bomb, Nevaeh, Sarah Stock (if she's free), Rebecca Knox (as a manager), Shantelle Taylor (would be cool for the convention too if she'll work a match and sign), Tiana Ringer. I realize that the last four aren't on the active Shimmer roster. These are the wrestlers I'd like to meet who I haven't yet from the all-time Shimmer roster who aren't with WWE or completely unavailable. And of course please bring Portia Perez!
I think several SHIMMER Talent should be there all weekend to be part of the Convention as Venders. Re-X, Mercedes, The Ninjas, Athena, Saraya, Melissa etc can be there, not just for the Saturday (as That's the Day of the Show).
Im not convinced by iPPV's yet. I hope volume 53 has the same high production values as the rest of the volumes and would rather it come out on DVD months later than it air live on what has proved not to be a totally reliable medium just yet.
Is there gonna be a SHIMMER Vendor Display where a Talent will be there every Hour or a Couple of Hrs for the SHIMMER Merch and their own Merch autographs, photo ops, Kissing Babies for a hundred bucks...Oh wait that last part was for Ric Flair, ignore that *does the Planet Fitness Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum...*
