Ring of Honor to Recognize SHIMMER Title
“American Angel” Sara Del Rey was crowned the first SHIMMER Champion this past Saturday night in Berwyn, IL as part of a two night, 16 woman, single elimination tournament. Del Rey defeated Cindy Rogers, Alicia, and “Dark Angel” Sarah Stock during the first three rounds of the tournament, to work her way into the finals against Lacey. Sara finished Lacey off with the Royal Butterfly into the powerslam, followed immediately by a jumping piledriver to capture the title. Congratulations, Death Rey! ROH will recognize the SHIMMER Title. There are currently negotiations taking place to have Del Rey defend the belt in ROH.
