Portia possibly? As out of control as she is most of the time at least she's never abandoned Nicole like Sara did with Courtney. Thinking about it loyalty is one good virtue that Portia has. It's weighed down by all the negatives but at least Courtney could trust Portia to always be there for her.

Awesome awesome weekend. Ended up in the hospital the next day but what the hell, it was worth it, haha. My quick bullet points - 8 man tag was best Shimmer match ever. I didn't think anything could replace Knox vs. Daizee or Hamada vs. Melissain my heart but this more than surpassed it. Great match and truly an honor to be able to see it live and to get spit on by Aja! Rock on.. Got to shake hands with Ozaki my all time favorite joshi (well, after the Crush Gals anyway) which was such an honor I'm still in awe.. Nicole vs. Madison...blah... variation on the Dusty finish which flat out sucked. We're told over and over Bryce is the senior Shimmer official and then to be overruled by peon Andy Long is a joke. Where was a ref to overrule on all the other screwjobs the Ninjas did that weekend. Worst finish since Daizee vs. Kurihara. Hurts the prestige of the title... Lots and lots of upsets or WTF? finishes which was quite cool, especially Crazy Mary's quick upset of Portia... Amused and amazed that at one point at intermission I was 5 feet from both Aja Kong and Mad Man Pondo....at a Shimmer show... strange times we live in.. Melissa haters need to get over it. She's still Cheerleader Melissa and that's all that matters.. Why is it no matter where I sit if I get GA at a show that I get behind the 1 or 2 people in the front row who stand even after introductions? You're in the friggin front row! Sit the hell down already.. Bit worried about the tag division. I get that 3G had to drop the belts but theres abundance of heel teams and, what, 1 remaining face team and Kimber Bombs beat them Sunday?... Speaking of the Kimber Bombs Cherry Bomb rules... I get that you're under time constraints and all but aren't you kinda hurting the wrestlers by running super short intermissions for them to make extra money? Want more time? Open the damn doors remotely close to the time you say youre gonna open them. What a concept... IS Sparkle no more?.. Paisan's sucked. Overpriced, crappy service, instead of separate checks since none of us at the table were together so we had to manually figure the mess out AND they add the tip to the bill? I admit I don't get out much but does everyone do it? Screw that, your tip depends on your service... Tessa Blanchard and Nicole Savoy are the futures of the company, no doubt... Courtney Rush turning heel was a good move since like the old days, Shimmer is clogged with faces and thin on heels. Now she can suplex the heck outta everybody to her hearts content. Shim needs top level heels...
One last thing and it's centered around a select few. Doubt any of these people are on the board but if they are, this is for you. My first Shimmer show was 17(ish?) I believe. The crowd that attends a Shim-show seems to have changed drastically. It used to be 99% respectful to the athletes (obviously this is after the ROH fans cleared out with their stupidity on the original volumes). At this last weekend it was shocking some of the things I heard. Multiple sexual and racist comments all weekend. Seriously people? You bought front or 2nd row to ask for stinkfaces and "face full of stuff" and buttgrabbing? OR to make fun of Joshi because they speak Japanese? Idiots. Yeah, it's nice to support Shimmer with the money and all but some morons should just stay home with that garbage.
