One of my favorite matches of the SHIMMER weekend in march was the marquee match-up between the great Ayako Hamada and wildly popular Ayumi Kurihara. The match was the capstone of Saturday, March 26, the opening day at the Eagles Club in Berwyn. The match did not disappoint. A back and forth affair with wild high spots and top drawer Joshi stiffness between two Joshi all-time greats!
I celebrate this match through the incomparable ring photographer, Wrestling Wally, who now makes his home in Kentucky and shoots midwest action now. We miss Wally here on the East Coast, but it's great to know that he will still be a fixture in documenting the action at SHIMMER. Enjoy these fine action shots!
