3S Tribute: Wrestlin' Wally's SHIMMER Photos

All Photos by Walter Lippmann

SHIMMER fans were delighted when Hiroyo Matsumoto emerged from the locker room having missed the September tapings with a hernia injury.  She was accompanied by the puckish, Misaki Ohata, and both were wearing cat-like masks of orange (Matsumoto) and sky blue (Ohata).  SHIMMER fans learned that these two talented joshi juniors were forming a tag team named 3S.  They promptly wrestled the tag belts away from the Canadian Ninjas (Matthews/Perez).  For 24 glorious hours they ruled Chi-Town as SHIMMER tag champs securing victories over DeGeneration X (Danger/Bates) and Roxx/Ariel and the Knight Dynasty (Brittany/Saraya).  Eventually, as dusk descended on Berwyn, IL, 3S met their match: Dazee Haze and Tomoka Nakagawa.  They lost the belts in one of the epic tag matches in SHIMMER history and one that is sure to become a fan favorite on the small screen.

Wrestling Wally (Walter Lippmann) was at ringside to snap these great photos of the bouyant, young champs from Japan.  Check out scores more photos on his website:  http://www.wrestlinwally.com/gallery/v/SHIMMER0326-2711Berwyn_ILHighlightsAlbum/
